The house of Islam : a global history by Ed Husain( Book )

11 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A revelatory exploration of the intricacies of Islam and the Muslim world ... The gulf between Islam and the West is widening. A faith rich with strong values and traditions, observed by nearly two billion people across the world, is seen by the West as something to be feared rather than understood. Sensational headlines and hardline policies spark enmity, while ignoring the feelings, narratives and perceptions that preoccupy Muslims today. Wise and authoritative, The House of Islam seeks to provide entry to the minds and hearts of Muslims the world over. It introduces us to the fairness, kindness and mercy of Mohamed; the aims of sharia law, through commentary on scripture, to provide an ethical basis to life; the beauty of Islamic art and the permeation of the divine in public spaces; and the tension between mysticism and literalism that still threatens the House of Islam. The decline of the Muslim world and the current crises of leadership mean that a glorious past, full of intellectual nobility and purpose, is now exploited by extremists and channeled into acts of terror. How can Muslims confront the issues that are destroying Islam from within, and what can the West do to help work towards that end? Ed Husain expertly and compassionately guides us through the nuances of Islam and its people, contending that the Muslim world need not be a stranger to the West, nor its enemy, but a peaceable ally."--Dust jacket

This house believes that Muslims are failing to combat extremism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overwhelming majority at the latest Doha Debate has criticised Muslims around the world for failing to combat extremism. Ed Husain, a British campaigner against fundamentalism, challenged the many Muslims who travel each year to Mecca to stand up to extremism 'right there'; claiming 'Saudi Arabia has totally demolished our heritage in Mecca and Medina.' Such public criticism of the Saudi Kingdom -- as well as Muslims in general -- is extremely rare in the Middle East. During the early 1990s Husain was a recruiter to fundamentalist groups at university campuses in the UK. Now deputy director of The Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism think tank, he insisted, "Muslims have to change their mindset of blaming others or we will be the laughing stock of the world." The motion was supported by US human rights lawyer Arsalan Iftikhar, who criticised Muslims for the mass demonstrations over cartoons in Denmark and the comparative silence over sectarian violence in Iraq. Speaking against the motion, Daisy Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, claimed the era of extremism was over. Alongside her, Moez Masoud, a Muslim 'televangelist' watched by millions in the region, accused the media of ignoring Muslim calls for tolerance

Som en del av ungdomsopprøret mot sine muslimske foreldre, ble Ed Husain islamistisk fundamentalist som sekstenåring. Etter fem år innså han hvor galt dette var. Etter å ha vært gjennom en slik utvikling opplever han det som sin menneskelige plikt å rope varsku mot alt det han ser av falsk islam i Storbritannia. I boken forsøker han å svare på hvorfor de ekstreme miljøene appellerer til unge menn og hvordan deres religiøse fanatisme har infiltrert muslimske miljøer. Han ønsker å komme med noen svar på hvordan religiøs ekstremisme kan utfordres og bekjempes i dagens samfunn

Outlook 2017 : religion, conflict and geopolitics in the year ahead by Ali H Soufan( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"As a new presidential administration takes the reins in Washington, and as the United Kingdom begins exiting the European Union, 2017 promises to bring dramatic and unpredictable change. In the Middle East, after decades of brutal conflict, poor governance, increasing sectarianism, and economic malaise, Muslim-majority states remain caught between conflicting interpretations of their Islamic foundations. Across the region, sectarian theological differences are compounded by powers with ambitions of regional domination and their weaponization of religion in pursuit of political aims, a trend that shows no sign of slowing in 2017. In the West, economic instability, mass migration, political dysfunction, and foreign security crises have enabled the rise of populist movements, testing the commitment of Western countries to pluralist values. In the context of these intra-civilizational identity crises, the liberal international order faces increasing strain. These pressures are exacerbated by long-running conflicts and expanding power vacuums, Russia's resurgence on the world stage, Europe's struggle to define relations with its neighbors, and a U.S. presidential administration set to dramatically revise American foreign policy. In 2017, the instability of the West will contribute to increasing strain on the economic, political, and security foundations of the international order that have underpinned global security since the end of the Second World War. The U.S. retreat from its role as leader of the international economic order could create large-scale volatility. The continued fragmentation of the EU will likely further undermine the appeal of multi-lateral global institutions. Growing uncertainty is likely to strain relations between states, potentially making them vulnerable to exploitation by revisionist powers such as Russia and China. Non-state actors -- such as ultra-nationalist hate groups and terrorist organizations -- will also seize the opportunity to undermine the legitimacy and control of central governments and to promote their extreme ideologies. As a result, states will be forced to focus increasingly on threats within their borders, to the detriment of international cooperation. With these challenges in mind, this paper discusses the outlook for religion, conflict, and geopolitics in the year ahead. While not an exhaustive list, these issues represent some of the most significant challenges to international stability in 2017"--Page 1
