Muslim Identity in a Turbulent Age

Check availabilityMuslim identity in a turbulent age : Islamic extremism and Western Islamophobia, edited by Mike Hardy, Fiyaz Mughal and Sarah Markiewicz.

 

This book debates what it means to be Muslim in Europe today through engaging with the 2004 Amman message, which sought to clarify Islam's true peaceful nature. Looking at Islam as a faith, as a whole system with political dimensions, and through the lens of Western media, this book sets out to clarify the true nature of Islam. Presenting fresh perspectives on a frequently misrepresented religion, this book offers a platform for debate about Islam's place within Western culture and political systems, and the role that faith communities can play in seeking peace and reconciliation.
