The Incoherence of Atheism outlines a powerfully convincing case for why belief in God is both a natural product of human nature and a natural consequence of the dictates of human reason. It offers a unique analysis of key arguments expounded by neo-atheists, and exposes their inherent flaws. In examining both cosmological and teleological approaches toward establishing the truth of theism, the work draws on important insights in both contemporary science, as well as medieval Islamic theology where the ideas of Ibn Rushd and Ibn Taymiyya in particular are given crucial voice. The notion of fitra is essential throughout, and holds centre stage in explaining the fundamental intellectual and emotional rift between belief and unbelief.
Sheikh ‘Abdullāh ibn Sāliḥ al-‘Ujayrī succeeds in presenting a substantially rich piece of philosophically erudite argumentation, combined with a careful analysis of the human dimension to the discord between theism and atheism. A unique and compelling must-read for all those interested in the intersection between God, reason, human nature and unbelief.
