Ziauddin Sardar and Merryl Wyn Davies:
The No-nonsense guide to Islam
Even before 11 Sept. 2001, Muslims were generally viewed in the West as enemies of 'freedom' and 'progress'. Yet there is far more to Islam than the stereotypical Occidental view.
This No-Nonsense Guide looks at how Islam, a complex faith and civilization, can reconcile itself with the twenty-first century. Critically minded Muslims everywhere are rethinking and reformulating Islam as a contemporary moral and ethical force.
Merryl Wyn Davies and Zia Sardar explain the Islamic worldview, examining the Qur’an and Islamic law (sharia), Islam in history, Islam’s relationship with the West and its contemporary nature. They analyse the struggle within the faith for a more humane and holistic interpretation of their religion; examine the issues surrounding women, democracy, and economic development; and suggest how we can all move forward after 9/11.
