Product Description


"What is the fundamental nature of "British Islam"? What kind of message is being conveyed by British Muslims? This book helps answer such questions, providing an in-depth series of case-studies of the most influential voices in the contemporary Muslim community in Britain. Dr Haifaa Jawad's sensitive evaluation of Islam in Britain debunks the media stereotypes of British Islam, and reveals instead that what inspires the finest minds of the British Muslim community is a creative synthesis between what is most noble in British culture and what is most profound in Islamic faith."--Sanford Lakoff

About the Author

Haifaa Jawad is Senior lecturer in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies in the department of Theology and Religion at the University of Birmingham, UK.

Format: Hardcover
This is a fascinating account, tracing Islam in Britain from the Islamic inscriptions on King Offa's coins right through to the very earliest known converts to Islam before focusing on a few key figures in Britain during the last century, including Martin Lings and Gai Eaton. There's also an excellent discussion on Sufism and the mystical side of Islam. Highly recommended.
