In The Mission and Destiny of Humankind, Dr. Hafeez illustrates his own personal approach to the study of the Qur'an, which emphasizes the ongoing theme that we as humans have been placed on earth to be God's trustees. Individual Qur'anic passages are studied, reflected upon, organized thematically, and often even placed in outline format within tables that frequently grace the text.

Dr. Hafeez has done a great job in writing The Mission and the Destiny of the Humankind. It is an excellent attempt to understand the commandments of the final revelation of God. His book is a marvelous effort to understand the actual spirit of Islam. Muslims as well as non-Muslims can benefit from this book.

The Mission and Destiny of Humankind by Dr. Hafiz is a remarkable work. It portrays an educational system defined by the Qur'an where moral values of human character are nurtured both in the religious and secular aspects of human life.
