CAIRO BOOKS's Description
An American imam offers answers for today's toughest questions about Islam,
and a vision for a reconciliation between Islam and the West.
One of the pressing questions of our time is what went wrong in the
relationship between Muslims and the West. Continuing global violence in the
name of Islam reflects the deepest fears by certain Muslim factions of Western
political, cultural, and economic encroachment. The solution to the current
antagonism requires finding common ground upon which to build mutual respect
and understanding. Who better to offer such an analysis than an American imam,
someone with a foot in each world and the tools to examine the common roots of
both Western and Muslim cultures; someone to explain to the non-Islamic West
not just what went wrong with Islam, but what's right with Islam.
Focused on finding solutions, not on determining fault, this is ultimately a
hopeful, inspiring book. What's Right with Islam systematically lays out the
reasons for the current dissonance between these cultures and offers a
foundation and plan for improved relations. Wide-ranging in scope, What's Right
with Islam elaborates in satisfying detail a vision for a Muslim world that can
eventually embrace its own distinctive forms of democracy and capitalism,
aspiring to a new Cordoba - a time when Jews, Christians, Muslims, and all
other faith traditions will live together in peace and prosperity.
