Abbas, T.
Islamic Radicalism and Multicultural Politics. The British experience
: The expression of an Islamic political radicalism in Britain has been one of the most dramatic developments in recent decades. Islamic Radicalism and Multicultural Politics explores the nature of this phenomenon by analysing the origins of Islam and its historical contact with Western Europe and Britain, and the emergence of Islamic political radicalism in the Muslim world and in the West. Tahir Abbas draws on historical analysis and contemporary case studies to explore the post-war immigration and integration of Muslim groups, the complex relations that exist between a secular liberal Britain and a diverse but multifaceted Islam, and the extent of social and economic inequalities that affect Muslims as individual citizens and in local area communities. He shows how violent extremism among British Muslims is in reality influenced by a range of issues, including the factors of globalisation and contemporary politics, media and culture. Analysing and dissecting public policy, Abbas offers suggestions for tackling the major social, political and economic questions facing British Muslims in the post-7/7 era.

Abdelraziq, A.
Islam and the Foundations of Political Power
The publication of this essay in Egypt in 1925 took the contemporaries of 'Ali 'Abd al-Raziq by storm. It was the focus of much attention and the seed of a heated debate. At a time when the Muslim world was in great turmoil over the question of the abolition of the caliphate by Mustapha Kamal Ataturk in Turkey, Abdelraziq, a religious cleric trained at Al-Azhar University, argued in favour of secularism. The abolition of the caliphate had reignited the issue of Islam and politics, as traditional political systems were dissolving under pressure from European powers while most Muslim countries had lost their sovereignty. This essay gave rise to a series of 'refutations' of which three were published the same year. It also unleashed the Arab world's first great public debate with polemics supporting or refuting Abdelraziq's ideas published all over the press. Eventually he was tried by the Al-Azhar court, denounced, stripped of his title of 'alim and barred from future employment in education and the judiciary.

De vrijheidsimpuls van de Islam
'Islam' betekent overgave aan God. Daar kunnen we ons in het geseculeerde Westen maar moeilijk iets bij voorstellen. Want het betekent onder meer afhankelijkheid en predestinatie. Maar is dat ook zo? Is dat niet een typische neocalvinistische invulling? Allah roept op om je in vrijheid over te geven aan jouw God (Soera 96). Allah is barmhartig en vergevingsgezind. Maar tegelijk is Allah de Alziende en de Vernederaar. In de islam staan de vrije wil en de predestinatie op gespannen voet met elkaar - maar geldt dat niet voor iedere religie? In deze bundel essays bespreken de auteurs verschillende aspecten van de spanning tussen vrijheid en predestinatie in de islam. De auteurs zijn geïnspireerd door de antroposofie. Vanuit deze achtergrond werpen zij soms een verrassend licht op de vrijheidsimpuls van de islam. De auteurs hopen met dit boek een bijdrage te leveren aan een nuancering van de huidige beeldvorming over de islam.

Adib-Moghaddam, A.
A Metahistory of the Clash of Civilisations. Us and Them Beyond Orientalism
This book seeks to dispel the myth that we have ever been embroiled in some 'clash of civilisations'. Adib-Moghaddam traverses various intellectual disciplines in order to find a pathway through the conceptual maze that has habituated us to think in 'tribal' categories. Accompanying the reader on this journey from the wars between ancient Persia and Greece, the Crusades, Colonialism and the Enlightenment to the contemporary 'wars on terror' are thinkers from 'East' and 'West': Adorno, Derrida, Farabi, Foucault, Hegel, Khayyam, Marcuse, Marx, Said, Ibn Sina, Weber. In asking where ideas such as the 'clash of civilisations' come from, and by whom they are perpetuated, Adib-Moghaddam engages with both western and Islamic representations of the 'other'. He demonstrates a) the discontinuities between 'Islamism' and the canon of classical Islamic philosophy distinguishing between 'Avicennian' and 'Qutbian' discourses of Islam, and b) how the violence inscribed in the idea of the 'West', especially during the period of the Enlightenment, continues to cast a shadow on world politics today. Expanding the geography of critical theory to include the canons of Islamic philosophy and poetry, A Metahistory of the Cash of Civilisations refuses to divorce Muslims from Europeans, Americans from Arabs, the Orient from the Occident. As such, it presents a frontal attack on our current cultural reality and Islamist-Western agitation against each other.

Agrama, Hussein Ali
Questioning Secularism: Islam, Sovereignty, and the Rule of Law in Modern Egypt
The central question of the Arab Spring - what democracies should look like in the deeply religious countries of the Middle East - has developed into a vigorous debate over these nations' secular identities. But what, exactly, is secularism? What has the West's long familiarity with it inevitably obscured? In "Questioning Secularism", Hussein Ali Agrama tackles these questions. Focusing on the fatwa councils and family law courts of Egypt just prior to the revolution, he delves deeply into the meaning of secularism itself and the ambiguities that lie at its heart. Drawing on a precedent-setting case arising from the family law courts - the last courts in Egypt to use Shari'a law - Agrama shows that secularism is a historical phenomenon that works through a series of paradoxes that it creates. Digging beneath the perceived differences between the West and Middle East, he highlights secularism's dependence on the law and the problems that arise from it: the necessary involvement of state sovereign power in managing the private spiritual lives of citizens and the irreducible set of legal ambiguities such a relationship creates. Navigating a complex landscape between private and public domains, "Questioning Secularism" lays important groundwork for understanding the real meaning of secularism as it affects the real freedoms of a citizenry, an understanding of the utmost importance for so many countries that are now urgently facing new political possibilities.

Ahmed, A. Q.
Avicenna`s Deliverance: Logic
This book offers for the first time a complete scholarly translation, commentary, and glossary in a modern European language of the logic section of Ibn S=in=a's (d. 1037 CE) very important compendium Ial-Naj=at (The Deliverance). The original, written in Arabic, is the product of the middle period of the most renowned Muslim philosopher and physician, known in the Latin West as Avicenna. Avicenna's logic system took as its starting point the Aristotelian and the Peripatetic tradition, but diverged from these in fascinating and original ways. The system presented by him becaume the standard reference and focus of further elaboration, debate, and innovation in the Islamic scholarly tradition, deeply influencing both the 'traditional religious' sciences (such as theology and law) and the naturalized Greek system (such as metaphysics). Because the Naj=at is both comprehensive and relatively terse, this translation, which has been the diachronic subject of study in various mad=aris and has a number of attached commentaries and glosses, will be extremely useful to those who do not read Arabic, but who wish to gain an overview of Avicenna's logic.

Ajouaou, Mohamed
Imam achter tralies, casestudie naar de islamitisch geestelijke verzorging in Nederlandse penitentiaire inrichtingen met bouwstenen voor een beroepsprofiel
Naar de positie van de moskee-imam in Nederland is inmiddels het nodige onderzoek verricht. Over de positie en activiteiten van de imam in het publieke domein weten we nog weinig. In deze leemte voorziet deze studie die zich specifiek richt op de praktijk van de islamitisch geestelijk verzorger bij Justitie. Hoe is deze praktijk ontstaan en hoe ontwikkelt ze zich? Wat is haar identiteit en wat zijn haar theologische fundamenten? Beschikt ze over eigen pastorale werkmodellen? Wat is het eigene van de islamitisch geestelijk verzorger ten opzichte van de moskee-imam en ten opzichte van zijn christelijke en humanistische collegas? Hoe gaat hij of zij om met kwesties als schuld, berouw, religieuze diversiteit binnen de islam, secularisme, integratie, loyaliteit, democratie en de rechtstaat? En wie of wat rekent de islamitisch geestelijk verzorger tot zijn aandachtsgebied? Moslims alleen? Wat en wie is een moslim dan? Hoe ziet de zorgvraag van een moslim (gedetineerde) eruit? Wat verwacht hij of zij van de islamitisch geestelijk verzorger en voldoet deze aan deze verwachtingen?

Al deze vragen en meer komen aan de orde in deze empirische case-studie. Met etnografische benadering brengt Ajouaou een bijzonder complex terrein in kaart. Hij doet daarbij niet alleen verslag van de empirie. Hij werkt ook talloze islamitische theologische noties die in deze empirie voorkomen theoretisch uit. Zijn uitgangspunt is dat de islamitisch theologische noties niet statisch van aard zijn, maar zich in dialoog met de sociale context steeds ontwikkelen.

Islam in Nederland.Theologische bijdragen in tijden van secularisering
Welke bijdrage kan de islamitische traditie leveren aan de democratische samenleving in Nederland? In Islam in Nederland denken intellectuelen met een christelijke en een islamitische achtergrond na over deze zeer belangrijke vraag. Het levert een rijk geschakeerd boek op, vol onverwachte inzichten. Op dit moment ziet men religie vooral als probleem. Dat geldt des te meer voor de islam.

De auteurs van Islam in Nederland laten echter zien dat een religieuze traditie als de islam vooral iets te bieden heeft: verrassende visioenen, weerbarstige rituelen, omstreden visies en verfrissende overtuigingen. De auteurs gaan in op de integratie van moslims en de vraag in welke zin de islam een democratische cultuur uitsluit. Maar zij verkennen ook moslimvisies op de relatie tussen mensen en God, tussen individu en samenleving, tussen autonomie en gehoorzaamheid. Het gaat ze er daarbij niet om 'de' islam te bespreken, maar om te laten zien hoe de islam aan het maatschappelijk gesprek kan bijdragen.

Islam in Europe: Diversity, Identity and Influence
Events over recent years have increased the global interest in Islam. This 2007 volume seeks to combat generalisations about the Muslim presence in Europe by illuminating its diversity across Europe and offering a more realistic, highly differentiated picture. It contends with the monist concept of identity that suggests Islam is the shared and main definition of Muslims living in Europe. The contributors also explore the influence of the European Union on the Muslim communities within its borders, and examine how the EU is in turn affected by the Muslim presence in Europe.

Al-Ghazali, Aladdin M. Yaqub (transl.)
Al-Ghazali's 'Moderation in Belief'
Centuries after his death, al-Ghazali remains one of the most influential figures of the Islamic intellectual tradition. Although he is best known for his Incoherence of the Philosophers, Moderation in Belief is his most profound work of philosophical theology. In it, he offers what scholars consider to be the best defense of the Ash'arite school of Islamic theology that gained acceptance within orthodox Sunni theology in the twelfth century, though he also diverges from Ash'arism with his more rationalist approach to the Quran. Together with The Incoherence of the Philosophers, Moderation in Belief informs many subsequent theological debates, and its influence extends beyond the Islamic tradition, informing broader questions within Western philosophical and theological thought.

The first complete English-language edition of Moderation in Belief, this new annotated translation by Aladdin M. Yaqub draws on the most esteemed critical editions of the Arabic texts and offers detailed commentary that analyzes and reconstructs the arguments found in the work's four treatises. Explanations of the historical and intellectual background of the texts also enable readers with a limited knowledge of classical Arabic to fully explore al-Ghazali and this foundational text for the first time.

Amir-Moezzi, M.A.
The Spirituality of Shii Islam. Beliefs and Practices
The second largest branch of Islam, with between 130 and 190 million adherents across the globe, Shi'i Islam is becoming an increasingly significant force in contemporary politics, especially in the Middle East. This makes an informed understanding of its fundamental spiritual beliefs and practices both necessary and timely. Mohammad Ali Amir-Moezzi is one of the most distinguished scholars of Shi'i history and theology, and in this volume he offers a wide-ranging and engaging survey of the core texts of Shi'i Islam. Examining in turn the origins and later developments of Shi'i spirituality, the author reveals the profoundly esoteric nature of the beliefs which accrued to the figures of the early Imams, and which became associated with their interaction between the material and spiritual worlds. Many of these beliefs have remained much misunderstood even within the wider Muslim world. Furthermore, Western scholarship has tended to follow the lead of the earlier orientalists and critics, viewing Shi'i teachings as marginal. In this study the author shows, by contrast, how central and creative the very nature of spirituality was to the development of Shi'i Islam, as well as to classical Muslim civilisation as a whole. In this comprehensive treatment, the esoteric nature of Shi'i spirituality emerges as an essential phenomenon for understanding Shi'i Islam.

Arberry, A.J. (ed. & transl.)
The Koran Interpreted: A Translation
No other book ever written, with the possible exception of the Bible, has so dramatically influenced the course of civilization as the Koran. Yet this important text remains little understood in the West. Since its first publication in 1955, Professor A.J. Arberry's translation has been the finest one available, its magnificently written verse making the Koran accessible to a Western audience. Professor Arberry has rendered the Koran into clear and lyrical English while carefully preserving the incomparable artistry of the Arabic original.

Avon, Dominique, Anais-Trissa Khatchadourian
Hezbollah: A History of the "Party of God"
For thirty years, Hezbollah has played a pivotal role in Lebanese and global politics. That visibility has invited Hezbollah's lionization and vilification by outside observers, and at the same time has prevented a clear-eyed view of Hezbollah's place in the history of the Middle East and its future course of action. Dominique Avon and Anais-Trissa Khatchadourian provide here a nonpartisan account which offers insights into Hezbollah that Western media have missed or misunderstood. Now part of the Lebanese government, Hezbollah nevertheless remains in tension with both the transnational Shiite community and a religiously diverse Lebanon. Calling for an Islamic regime would risk losing critical allies at home, but at the same time Hezbollah's leaders cannot say that a liberal regime is the solution for the future. Consequently, they use the ambiguous expression "civil but believer state." What happens when an organization founded as a voice of "revolution" and then "resistance" occupies a position of power, yet witnesses the collapse of its close ally, Syria? How will Hezbollah's voice evolve as the party struggles to reconcile its regional obligations with its religious beliefs? The authors' analyses of these key questions--buttressed by their clear English translations of foundational documents, including Hezbollah's open letter of 1985 and its 2009 charter, and an in-depth glossary of key theological and political terms used by the party's leaders--make Hezbollah an invaluable resource for all readers interested in the future of this volatile force.

Bashier, S.H.
The Story of Islamic Philosophy. Ibn Tufayl, Ibn al-'Arabi, and Others on the Limit between Naturalism and Traditionalism
In this innovative work, Salman H. Bashier challenges traditional views of Islamic philosophy. While Islamic thought from the crucial medieval period is often depicted as a rationalistic elaboration on Aristotelian philosophy and an attempt to reconcile it with the Muslim religion, Bashier puts equal emphasis on the influence of Plato’s philosophical mysticism. This shift encourages a new reading of Islamic intellectual tradition, one in which boundaries between philosophy, religion, mysticism, and myth are relaxed. Bashier shows the manner in which medieval Islamic philosophers reflected on the relation between philosophy and religion as a problem that is intrinsic to philosophy and shows how their deliberations had the effect of redefining the very limits of their philosophical thought. The problems of the origin of human beings, human language, and the world in Islamic philosophy are discussed. Bashier highlights the importance of Ibn Tufayl’s Hayy Ibn Yaqzan, a landmark work often overlooked by scholars, and the thought of the great Sufi mystic Ibn al-Arabiµ to the mainstream of Islamic philosophy.

Bauer, Karen (ed)
Aims, Methods and Contexts of Qur'anic Exegesis (2nd/8th-9th/15th Centuries)
Medieval interpretations of the Qur'an often serve as points of reference for Muslim thought; yet Qur'an commentaries were shaped not only by the Qur'an itself, but also by their authors' ideological viewpoints, their theories of interpretation, their methods, and the conventions of the genre. This volume is the first to focus solely on the complicated relationship between exegetes' theoretical aims, their practical methods of writing, and the historical and intellectual contexts of Qur'an commentaries (tafsir). Experts in various aspects of the Qur'an and its interpretation have contributed essays, spanning the 2nd/8th to the 9th/15th centuries, the period in which the commentarial tradition developed and flourished. They emphasise the ways in which geography, human networks, hermeneutical systems and genre boundaries affected the writing of these texts.

This volume offers fresh analytical perspectives and addresses new methods for the study of tafsir. It also provides resources for scholars, by including editions and translations of the introductions to al-Basit of Abu'l-Hasan 'Ali al-Wahidi (d. 486/1076) and the Tahdhib fi Tafsir al-Qur'an of al-Hakim al-Jishumi (d. 494/1101), as well as translated selections from the introduction to the tafsir of 'Abd al-Razzaq al-Kashani (d. 736/1336). The detailed studies in this volume will help scholars and students alike to comprehend accurately the purpose and content of Qur'an commentaries individually and as a genre.

Bayat, Asef (ed)
Post-Islamism. The Changing Faces of Political Islam
At least since the Islamic revolution of 1979 in Iran, political Islam or Islamism has been the focus of attention among scholars, policymakers, and the general public. Much has been said about Islamism as a political and moral/ethical trend, but scant attention is paid to its ongoing development. There is now a growing acknowledgment within the scholarly and policy communities that Islamism is in the throes of transformation, but little is known about the nature and direction of these changes. The essays of Post-Islamism bring together young and established scholars and activists from different parts of the Muslim World and the West to discuss their research on the changing discourses and practices of Islamist movements and Islamic states largely in the Muslim majority countries. The changes in these movements can be termed 'post-Islamism,' defined both as a condition and a project characterized by the fusion of religiosity and rights, faith and freedom, Islam and liberty. Post-Islamism emphasizes rights rather than merely obligation, plurality instead of singular authoritative voice, historicity rather than fixed scriptures, and the future instead of the past.

Moslims in een westerse samenleving. Islam en ethiek
Een groeiend deel van de Nederlandse en Vlaamse bevolking heeft een islamitische achtergrond. De meeste belijdende moslims hebben er geen problemen mee in een westerse samenleving te leven. Maar de media wekken een andere indruk, die bepalend lijkt te zijn: dat van gelovigen voor wie het leven in een 'niet-islamitisc' land wel tot bijzondere vragen en ook tot spanningen leidt. Botsingen worden uitvergroot en tegenstellingen aangezet. De publieke opinie volgt, maar vaak zonder zich echt in de achtergronden verdiept te hebben.

Welke vragen hebben moslims die hier wonen eigenlijk en aan wie leggen zij die voor? Zijn de vragen en antwoorden hier anders dan in de kernlanden van de islamitische wereld? Waar ligt het accent: bij de islamitische geloofsgemeenschap of bij de individuele gelovige?

De auteurs van dit boek behandelen deze en andere vragen en tonen daarmee de dynamiek van moslims in een westerse samenleving.

Ben-Zaken, A.
Reading Hayy Ibn-Yaqzan : A Cross-Cultural History of Autodidacticism
Commonly translated as "The Self-Taught Philosopher" or "The Improvement of Human Reason," Ibn-Tufayl's story ayy Ibn-Yaq an inspired debates about autodidacticism in a range of historical fields from classical Islamic philosophy through Renaissance humanism and the European Enlightenment. Avner Ben-Zaken's account of how the text traveled demonstrates the intricate ways in which autodidacticism was contested in and adapted to diverse cultural settings. In tracing the circulation of the ayy Ibn-Yaq an, Ben-Zaken highlights its key place in four far-removed historical moments. He explains how autodidacticism intertwined with struggles over mysticism in twelfth-century Marrakesh, controversies about pedagogy in fourteenth-century Barcelona, quarrels concerning astrology in Renaissance Florence, and debates pertaining to experimentalism in seventeenth-century Oxford. In each site and period, Ben-Zaken recaptures the cultural context that stirred scholars to relate to ayy Ibn-Yaq an and demonstrates how the text moved among cultures, leaving in its wake translations, interpretations, and controversies as various as the societies themselves. Pleas for autodidacticism, Ben-Zaken shows, not only echoed within close philosophical discussions; they surfaced in struggles for control between individuals and establishments. Presented as self-contained histories, these four moments together form a historical collage of autodidacticism across cultures from the late Medieval era to early modern times. The first book-length intellectual history of autodidacticism, this novel, thought-provoking work will interest a wide range of historians, including scholars of the history of science, philosophy, literature, Europe, and the Middle East.

Klassieke sharia en vernieuwing
Klassieke sharia en vernieuwing biedt een beknopte introductie op de 'sharia' of islamitische wetgeving. De twee belangrijkste delen van het boek behandelen de klassieke sharia en de vernieuwingen die in de tussentijd hebben plaatsgevonden. Na een inleiding op de aard van de sharia, de belangrijkste spelers en hun methodologie, gaat Berger in op de invloed van de sharia op de vier belangrijkste onderdelen, te weten het staatsrecht, het familierecht, het strafrecht en het economisch recht. De auteur laat zien hoe de sharia zich als gevolg van staatsvorming en modernisering heeft ontwikkeld van de algemene wet in landen in de moslimwereld tot een meer beperkte maar nog steeds belangrijke positie. Deze zeer informatieve studie besluit met enkele inzichten in de islamitische benadering van de mensenrechten.

The Poetics of Iblis. Narrative Theology in the Qur'an
Iblis, the character in the Qur'an who refuses God's command to bow to Adam and is punished by eviction from heaven, is commonly depicted as a fiendish character no different from Satan. However, some Sufi stories describe Iblis as the ultimate monotheist, a lover of God, but tragically rejected. This volume seeks the origins of this alternative Iblis within the Qur'an itself, by looking at each of the seven Qur'anic versions of the Iblis story as a unique rendering of the basic narrative. Whitney Bodman finds that the likely earliest version of the Iblis story presents him as a tragic figure, an elder sibling of Adam unjustly displaced from God's favor. Subsequent renderings present an Iblis more hostile to humanity, and in the last two abbreviated versions Iblis becomes an incidental figure in the extended story of Adam. In modern Arab literature the character of Iblis is deployed to reveal tragic dimensions of modern life. Alhough it is often said that there is no place for tragedy in Islam, Bodman's careful examination of the Iblis story shows that the tragic exists even in the Qur'an and forms part of the vision of medieval Sufi mystics and modern social critics alike.

Islam, liefde en seksualiteit
Het merendeel van de jonge moslims in het Westen is op zoek naar de betekenis van hun islamitische achtergrond. Ze worstelen daarbij met het feit dat ze weinig orientatiepunten hebben in een wereld die op tal van gebieden veel vrijheid kent. Onderling praten ze nauwelijks over hun seksualiteit of over hun seksleven. In Islam, liefde en seksualiteit nodigt de auteur hen uit tot een dialoog, zonder voorschriften en richtlijnen, maar in het perspectief van een islamitische ethiek die verbonden is met het mysterie van mens en schepping.

In het eerste van acht essays gaat de auteur in op creatieve liefde: de liefde in de koran en de liefde voor God en Zijn profeet. Vervolgens behandelt hij de liefde in al zijn verschijningsvormen van de spirituele ascetische liefde tot en met een aardse ontmoeting die een uur stand houdt. Een 'Seksueel leven' gaat over opvoeding en voorlichting, 'Seksuele sluiers' behandelt seksuele vrijheid en onvrijheid. 'Functies van het huwelijk' en 'Gemengde huwelijken' gaan over de islamitische visie op het huwelijk en de factoren voor geluk en over communicatie in gemengde huwelijken. In 'Zorg en genezing' staan de moderne heelmeesters centraal en de verschillende seksuele gedragingen en stoornissen. Het laatste essay, over de bronnen van de islam, is een aanzet tot hulp bij zelfstandige raadpleging van de islamitische bronnen om zo te groeien in het maken van individuele afwegingen.

Abdulwahid van Bommel (Amsterdam-Noord, 1944) was jazzmusicus en volgde een imamopleiding in Turkije. Terug in Nederland groeide hij, eerst als imam in Den Haag en later als directeur van de Nederlandse Moslim Omroep, uit tot een kritisch-liberale denker en intermediair van Nederlandse en allochtone moslims. Hij werkt nu als geestelijk raadsman in een ziekenhuis.

Vertrouw op Allah, maar bind wel je kameel vast. Belevenissen van een journaliste in het Midden-Oosten
Het is augustus 2001 als Esmeralda als jonge studente Arabisch voor het eerst aankomt in Egypte, waar ze kennismaakt met een voor haar totaal nieuwe cultuur. Tien jaar later loopt ze met cameraploegen door de rokende puinhopen van Bagdad om verslag te doen van de aanslagen in Irak en verslaat ze het nieuws over de Egyptische revolutie vanaf het roerige Tahrirplein in Cairo.

In Vertrouw op Allah, maar bind wel je kameel vast laat Van Boon zien hoe ze zich in de jaren daartussen staande heeft leren houden in deze wereld van nieuwsgierige mannen, dubbele standaarden en bureaucratische doolhoven.

Vanaf dag een noteerde ze haar belevenissen en ontmoetingen in notitieblokken en dagboeken. De bizarre, ontroerende en grappige gebeurtenissen die ze tijdens haar jarenlange verblijf in het Midden-Oosten meemaakte, heeft ze nu eindelijk verwerkt tot een reeks schitterende verhalen. Vertrouw op Allah, maar bind wel je kameel vast is een persoonlijk verhaal van een jonge westerse vrouw in de soms mysterieuze en vooral fascinerende Arabische wereld.

Arabieren kijken
De Arabische wereld wordt vaak beschreven vanuit een historisch en politiek perspectief. Onderdrukking, religieus extremisme en rechteloosheid zijn enkele van de kwalificaties die vaak vallen. Voeg daar een flinke scheut vrouwenonderdrukking aan toe en we hebben de kern van het gemiddelde boek over de Arabische wereld te pakken.

Voor het gemak wordt vergeten dat er vooral gewone mensen in de Arabische landen leven. Mensen die niet, zoals de beelden in de media ons willen laten geloven, dagelijks vlaggen verbanden en de westerse wereld haten, maar mensen met universele verlangens en gevoelens. Mensen van vlees en bloed.

Bowen, John R.
A New Anthropology of Islam
In this powerful but accessible new study John Bowen draws on a full range of work in social anthropology to present Islam in ways that emphasise its constitutive practices, from praying and learning to judging and political organising. Starting at the heart of Islam - revelation and learning in Arabic lands - Bowen shows how Muslims have adapted Islamic texts and traditions to ideas and conditions in the societies in which they live. Returning to key case studies in Indonesia, Africa, Pakistan and Western Europe to explore each major domain of Islamic religious and social life, Bowen also considers the theoretical advances in social anthropology that have come out of the study of Islam. A New Anthropology of Islam is essential reading for all those interested in the study of Islam and for those following new developments in the discipline of anthropology.

Bowen, J. R.
Blaming Islam
In the United States and in Europe, politicians, activists, and even some scholars argue that Islam is incompatible with Western values and that we put ourselves at risk if we believe that Muslim immigrants can integrate into our society. Norway's Anders Behring Breivik took this argument to its extreme and murderous conclusion in July 2011. Meanwhile in the United States, state legislatures' efforts to ban the practice of Islamic law, or sharia, are gathering steam--despite a notable lack of evidence that sharia poses any real threat.

In Blaming Islam, John Bowen uncovers the myths about Islam and Muslim integration into Western society, with a focus on the histories, policy, and rhetoric associated with Muslim immigration in Europe, the British experiment with sharia law for Muslim domestic disputes, and the claims of European and American writers that Islam threatens the West. Most important, he shows how exaggerated fears about Muslims misread history, misunderstand multiculturalism's aims, and reveal the opportunism of right wing parties who draw populist support by blaming Islam.

Islam in Indonesia, contrasting images and interpretations
De islam in Indonesie wordt vaak afgeschilderd als gematigd en tolerant en ten voorbeeld gesteld aan andere islamitische landen. Maar is dit beeld juist? Ook in Indonesie doen fundamentalistische groepen van zich spreken.

'Islam in Indonesia' gaat in op de specifieke manifestaties van de islam in Indonesie en de gevolgen daarvan voor de maatschappij en de politiek. Aan de orde komen onder andere salafistische organisaties, de voortrekkersrol van islamitische feministen en de discussies over erfrecht en echtscheiding.

- Jajat Burhanudin is directeur van het Center for Islamic and Social Studies van de Syarif Hidayatullah Islamitische Staatsuniversiteit in Jakarta.
- Kees van Dijk is emeritus hoogleraar in de Geschiedenis van de Moderne Islam in Indonesie aan de Universiteit Leiden.

On Magic: An Arabic critical edition and English translation of Epistle 52, Part 1
The Ikhwan al-Safa (Brethren of Purity), the anonymous adepts of a tenth-century esoteric fraternity based in Basra and Baghdad, hold an eminent position in the history of science and philosophy in Islam due to the wide reception and assimilation of their monumental encyclopaedia, the Rasa'il Ikhwan al-Safa (Epistles of the Brethren of Purity). This compendium contains fifty-two epistles offering synoptic accounts of the classical sciences and philosophies of the age; divided into four classificatory parts, it treats themes in mathematics, logic, natural philosophy, psychology, metaphysics, and theology, in addition to didactic fables. The Rasa'il constitutes a paradigmatic legacy in the canonization of philosophy and the sciences in mediaeval Islamic civilization, as well as having shown a permeating influence in Western culture. This is the fifth volume in a series presenting the very first critical edition of the Rasa'il in its original Arabic, complete with the first fully annotated English translation. Epistle 52: On Magic is the last in the corpus, and presents the short version of the 'Epistle on Magic, Incantations, and the Evil Eye'. Within its pages the authors of the epistle argue for the legitimacy of magic and the other occult sciences, and seek confirmation of their views in authorities as diverse as Plato, the Qur'an, the Torah, the astrologer Abu Ma'shar, and the mysterious sect of pagan star-worshippers known as the Sabians of Harran. As in all other volumes of the series, this volume provides the first critical edition of the Arabic text, together with an English translation and a substantial range of notes. An extensive introduction highlights the unique relevance of this treatise within the framework of the Brethren's encyclopaedia itself, and to the history of science in general.

Klein Arabisch Prentenboek
Als de Arabieren al niet gewoon worden doodgezwegen in onze cultuur en in ons geschiedenisonderwijs, dan is de beeldvorming over hen vaak negatief. Lucas Catherine nam de proef op de som. Hoe keken Suske en Wiske naar de Arabieren? En hoe deden de Chinezen dat? Over de Arabische origine van gazpacho, de maffia, Saint-Tropez en Jan Van Eyck - ja die van het Lam Gods, die in 1429 op vakantie ging in het Arabische Granada. En over de pogingen van Leopold II om Marokko te koloniseren.

'Veel van wat ik vertel zal u vreemd in de oren klinken. Daarom probeer ik mijn verhaal ook visueel duidelijk te maken met prentjes', legt Lucas Catherine uit in de inleiding. 'U kent de uitdrukking: je moet het gezien hebben om het te geloven.'

The New Cambridge History of Islam. 6 Volume Set
The New Cambridge History of Islam is a comprehensive history of Islamic civilization, tracing its development from its beginnings in seventh-century Arabia to its wide and varied presence in the globalised world of today. The six volumes reflect the geographical distribution and the cultural, social and religious diversity of the peoples of the Muslim world. Four volumes cover historical developments and two are devoted to themes that cut across geographical and chronological divisions, ranging from social, political and economic relations to the arts, literature and learning. Each volume's introduction sets the scene for the ensuing chapters and examines relationships with adjacent civilizations. Written by a team combining established authorities and rising scholars in the field, this will be the standard reference for students, scholars and all those with enquiring minds for years to come.

The Koran, with a Parallel Arabic Text
The Koran is universally accepted by Muslims to be the infallible Word of God as first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel nearly fourteen hundred years ago. Its 114 chapters, or surahs, recount the narratives central to Muslim belief, and together they form one of the world's most influential prophetic works and a literary masterpiece in its own right. But, above all, the Koran provides the rules of conduct that remain fundamental to the Muslim faith today: prayer, fasting, almsgiving, pilgrimage to Mecca and absolute faith in God and His apostle.

Contextualising Jihadi Thought
Global jihadism has been on policy agendas for more than two decades. Since the 9/11 attacks, both transnational jihadi entities such as Al-Qaeda and national or regional militant groups have attracted a great deal of media and scholarly attention. In recent years, policy agendas have increasingly come to include a focus on countering militant jihadi ideologies. Despite this, studies of global jihadism that take the impact of ideas seriously are at a relatively early stage and have yet to fully capture the richness of their social contexts and intellectual universes.

Departing from the security studies approaches that have characterised much writing about jihadi groups, this volume aims to engage policy-makers and specialists alike by bridging existing disciplines and areas of study to create a framework for beginning to understand jihadi movements through the study of their ideologies, intellectual histories, political engagements and geographies.

The contributors to the volume come from a range of academic disciplines (including history, anthropology, political science, religious studies and area studies), as well as from the worlds of diplomacy and policy research. In addition to studies of globalised contexts and ideologies, the volume also includes detailed studies of jihadi currents of thought and responses to them in Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, India, Pakistan, Egypt, South-East Asia and Europe.

Dimmock, Matthew
Mythologies of the Prophet Muhammad in Early Modern English Culture
The figure of 'Mahomet' was widely known in early modern England. A grotesque version of the Prophet Muhammad, Mahomet was a product of vilification, caricature and misinformation placed at the centre of Christian conceptions of Islam. In Mythologies of the Prophet Muhammad in Early Modern English Culture Matthew Dimmock draws on an eclectic range of sources from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries - literary, historical, visual - to explore the nature and use of Mahomet in a period bounded by the beginnings of print and the early Enlightenment. This fabricated figure and his spurious biography were endlessly recycled, but also challenged and vindicated, and the tales the English told about him offer new perspectives on their sense of the world - its geographies and religions, near and far - and their place within it. This book explores the role played by Mahomet in the making of Englishness, and reflects on what this might reveal about England's present circumstances.

Donner, F. M.
Muhammad and the Believers. At the Origins of Islam
The origins of Islam have been the subject of increasing controversy in recent years. The traditional view, which presents Islam as a self-consciously distinct religion tied to the life and revelations of the prophet Muhammad in western Arabia, has since the 1970s been challenged by historians engaged in critical study of the Muslim sources.

In Muhammad and the Believers, the eminent historian Fred Donner offers a lucid and original vision of how Islam first evolved. He argues that the origins of Islam lie in what we may call the "Believers' movement" begun by the prophet Muhammad - a movement of religious reform emphasizing strict monotheism and righteous behavior in conformity with God's revealed law. The Believers' movement thus included righteous Christians and Jews in its early years, because like the Qur'anic Believers, Christians and Jews were monotheists and agreed to live righteously in obedience to their revealed law.

The conviction that Muslims constituted a separate religious community, utterly distinct from Christians and Jews, emerged a century later, when the leaders of the Believers' movement decided that only those who saw the Qur'an as the final revelation of the One God and Muhammad as the final prophet, qualified as Believers. This separated them decisively from monotheists who adhered to the Gospels or Torah.

Islam in transition, Muslim Perspectives, second edition
9/11 and continued acts of global terrorism from Madrid to Bali have challenged the understanding of academic experts, students, and policymakers, Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Critical questions have been raised about Islam and Muslim politics in the modern world: Are Islam and modernity compatible?; Is Islam compatible with modernization: with nationalism, secularism, economic development and democracy?; Is Islam in need of and capable of reform?; what does Islam and what do Muslims have to say about globalization, democracy, human rights, women, jihad, violence, terrorism, and suicide bombing. This updated and expanded second edition of Islam in Transition: Muslim Perspectives includes more than 50% new materials with representative selections from diverse Muslim voices, moderates and extremists, traditionalists and reformers, from the Middle East to Southeast Asia, Europe to America.

Driessen, Henk (red)
In het huis van de islam. Geografie, geschiedenis, geloofsleer, cultuur, economie, politiek
De publieke en wetenschappelijke belangstelling voor de islam is de laatste jaren stormachtig toegenomen. Verwonderlijk is dat niet. Het gaat om een zesde van de wereldbevolking, en om een godsdienst en cultuur met een steeds groter politiek gewicht. De islam is niet meer ver van ons bed: via de media en migranten krijgt men er in het Westen elke dag mee te maken.

De islam is dus dichtbij maar is ons ook vreemd. De godsdienst en beschaving van de islam kent een andere verhouding tussen mannen en vrouwen, tussen staat, wetgeving en religie, tussen moderniteit en traditie. De islam heeft een andere kunst, een andere houding tegenover leven en dood, andere rituelen, een ander heilsbegrip.

Redacteur Henk Driessen en 24 andere Nederlandse wetenschappers presenteren vanuit een veelheid van disciplines een nieuw overzicht van de islam in verleden en heden.

Edde, A.-M.
Saladin
Working simultaneously on two levels, "Saladin" represents the best kind of biography - a portrait of a man who is said to have made an age, and the most complete account we have to date of an age that made the man. Unlike biographies that focus on Saladin's military exploits, especially the recapturing of Jerusalem from European Crusaders in 1187, Edde's narrative draws on an incredible array of contemporary sources to develop the fullest picture possible of a ruler shaped profoundly by the complex Arabian political environment in which he rose to prominence. The result is a unique view of the Crusades from an Arab perspective. Saladin became a legend in his own time, venerated by friend and foe alike as a paragon of justice, chivalry, and generosity. Arab politicians ever since have sought to claim his mantle as a justification for their own exercise of power. But Saladin's world-historical status as the ideal Muslim ruler owes its longevity to a tacit agreement among contemporaries and later chroniclers about the set of virtues Saladin possessed - virtues that can now be tested against a rich tapestry of historical research. This tension between the mythical image of Saladin, layered over centuries and deployed in service of specific moral and political objectives, and the verifiable facts of his life available to a judicious modern historian is what sustains Anne-Marie Edde's erudite biography, published to acclaim in France in 2008 and offered here in smooth, readable English translation.

Egerton, F.
Jihad in the West. The Rise of Militant Salafism
Militant Salafism is one of the most significant movements in politics today. Unfortunately its significance has not been matched by understanding. To begin to address this knowledge deficit this book argues that, rather than the largely unhelpful pursuit of individual 'root causes' offered in much of the literature, we would be better served by looking at the factors that have enabled and facilitated a particular political imaginary. That political imaginary is one that allows individuals to conceive of themselves as integral members of a global battle waged between the forces of Islam and the West, something that lies at the heart of militant Salafism. Frazer Egerton shows how the ubiquity of modern media and the prevalence of movement have allowed for a transformation of existing beliefs into an ideology supportive of militant Salafism against the West amongst Western Muslims.

Elver, H.
The Headscarf Controversy. Secularism and Freedom of Religion
Hilal Elver offers an in-depth study of the escalating controversy over the right of Muslim women to wear headscarves. Examining legal and political debates in Turkey, several European countries including France and Germany, and the United States, Elver shows the troubling exclusion of pious Muslim women from the public sphere in the name of secularism, democracy, liberalism, and women's rights. After evaluating political actions and court decisions from the national level of individual governments to the international sphere of the European Court of Human Rights, Elver concludes that judges and legislators are increasingly influenced by social pressures concerning immigration and multiculturalism, and by issues such as Islamophobia, the "war on terror," and security concerns. She shows how these influences have resulted in a failure on the part of many Western governments to recognize and protect essential individual freedoms. Employing a critical legal theory perspective to the headscarf controversy, Elver argues that law can be used to change underlying social conditions shaping the role of religion, and also the position of women in modern society. The Headscarf Controversy demonstrates how changes in law across nations can be used to restore state commitments to human rights.

What everyone needs to know about Islam, 2nd Revised edition
Since the terrorist attacks of September 11th, there has been an overwhelming demand for information about Islam, and recent events - the war in Iraq, terrorist attacks both failed and successful, debates throughout Europe over Islamic dress, and many others - have raised new questions in the minds of policymakers and the general public. This newly updated edition of What Everyone Needs to Know about Islam is the best single source for clearly presented, objective information about these new developments, and for answers to questions about the origin and traditions of Islam. Editor of The Oxford Encyclopedia of Modern Islam and The Oxford History of Islam, and author of The Future of Islam and many other acclaimed works, John L. Esposito is one of America's leading authorities on Islam. This brief and readable book remains the first place to look for up-to-date information on the faith, customs, and political beliefs of the more than one billion people who call themselves Muslims.

Islamophobia. The Challenge of Pluralism in the 21st Century
Islamophobia has been on the rise since September 11, as seen in countless cases of discrimination, racism, hate speeches, physical attacks, and anti-Muslim campaigns. The 2006 Danish cartoon crisis and the controversy surrounding Pope Benedict XVI's Regensburg speech have underscored the urgency of such issues as image-making, multiculturalism, freedom of expression, respect for religious symbols, and interfaith relations. The 1997 Runnymede Report defines Islamophobia as "dread, hatred, and hostility towards Islam and Muslims perpetuated by a series of closed views that imply and attribute negative and derogatory stereotypes and beliefs to Muslims." Violating the basic principles of human rights civil liberties, and religious freedom, Islamophobic acts take many different forms. In some cases, mosques, Islamic centers, and Muslim properties are attacked and desecrated. In the workplace, schools, and housing, it takes the form of suspicion, staring, hazing, mockery, rejection, stigmatizing and outright discrimination. In public places, it occurs as indirect discrimination, hate speech, and denial of access to goods and services. This collection of essays takes a multidisciplinary approach to Islamophobia, bringing together the expertise and experience of Muslim, American, and European scholars. Analysis is combined with policy recommendations. Contributors discuss and evaluate good practices already in place and offer new methods for dealing with discrimination, hatred, and racism.

Makers of Contemporary Islam.
This book examines the development of contemporary Islamic movements and thought through the biographies of nine major activist intellectuals whose work povides the core of what the Islamic resurgence became in the 1990s, and is an important foundation for what it can become in the 21st century. By profiling nine such internationally recognised figures this volume provides a new understanding of the intellectual foundations of contemporary Islamic awareness and politics. The nine figures covered are: Ismail al-Faruqi, Khurshid Ahmad, Maryam Jameelah, Hasan Hanafi, Rashid Ghannoushi, Hasan al-Turabi, Abdol Karim Soroush, Anwar Ibrahim, and Abdurrahman Wahid. These nine have contributed to some of the most significant intellectual and activist developments in the Muslim world during the 1980s and 1990s - the period during which Islamic movements became a major force in Muslim societies and international affairs. They represent a distinctive phase in the evolution of Islamic thinking: the ongoing effort to create an effective synthesis of modernity and Islamic tradition.

Princeton Readings in Islamist Thought. Texts and Contexts from al-Banna to Bin Laden
This anthology of key primary texts provides an unmatched introduction to Islamist political thought from the early twentieth century to the present, and serves as an invaluable guide through the storm of polemic, fear, and confusion that swirls around Islamism today. Roxanne Euben and Muhammad Qasim Zaman gather a broad selection of texts from influential Islamist thinkers and place these figures and their writings in their multifaceted political and historical contexts. The selections presented here in English translation include writings of Ayatollah Khomeini, Usama bin Laden, Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and Moroccan Islamist leader Nadia Yassine, as well as the Hamas charter, an interview with a Taliban commander, and the final testament of 9/11 hijacker Muhammad Ata. Illuminating the content and political appeal of Islamist thought, this anthology brings into sharp relief the commonalities in Islamist arguments about gender, democracy, and violence, but it also reveals significant political and theological disagreements among thinkers too often grouped together and dismissed as extremists or terrorists. No other anthology better illustrates the diversity of Islamist thought, the complexity of its intellectual and political contexts, or the variety of ways in which it relates to other intellectual and religious trends in the contemporary Muslim world.

Dreams and Visions in Islamic Societies
Dreams and visions have always been important in Islamic societies. Yet, their pervasive impact on Muslim communities and on the lives of individual Muslims remains largely unknown and rather surprising to Westerners. This book addresses this gap in understanding with a fascinating and diverse account, taking readers from premodern Islam to the present day. Dreams and visions are shown to have been, and to be, significant in a range of social, educational, and cultural roles. The book includes a wealth of examples detailing the Sufi experience.

Contributors use Arabic, Persian, Indian, Central Asian, and Ottoman sources and employ approaches grounded in history, sociology, psychology, anthropology, religious studies, and literary analysis. This is an illuminating work, showing how ordinary Muslims, Muslim notables, Sufis, legal scholars, and rulers have perceived both themselves and the world around them through the prism of dreams and visions.

Filiu, J. P.
Apocalypse in Islam
This is an eye-opening exploration of a troubling phenomenon: the fast-growing belief in Muslim countries that the end of the world is at hand - and with it the "Great Battle," prophesied by both Sunni and Shi'i tradition, which many believers expect will begin in the Afghan-Pakistani borderlands. Jean-Pierre Filiu uncovers the role of apocalypse in Islam over the centuries, and highlights its extraordinary resurgence in recent decades. Identifying 1979 as a decisive year in the rise of contemporary millenarian speculation, he stresses the ease with which subsequent events in the Middle East have been incorporated into the intellectual universe of apocalyptic propagandists. Filiu also shows how Christian and Jewish visions of the Final Judgment have stimulated alarmist reaction in Islamic lands, both in the past and today, and examines the widespread fear of Christian Zionist domination as an impetus to jihad. Though the overwhelming majority of Muslims remains unpersuaded, the mounting conviction in the imminence of apocalypse is a serious matter, especially for those who are preparing for it.

Fish, M. S.
Are Muslims Distinctive? A look at the Evidence
How, if at all, do Muslims and non-Muslims differ? The question spurs spirited discussion among people the world over, in Muslim and non-Muslim lands alike, but we still lack answers based on sound empirical evidence. This book engages a set of the biggest issues using rigorous methods and data drawn from around the globe. It reveals that in some areas Muslims and non-Muslims differ less than is commonly imagined, and shows that Muslims are not unusually religious or inclined to favor the fusion of religious and political authority. Nor are Muslims especially prone to mass political violence. Yet in some areas Muslims and non-Muslims diverge: Gender inequality is more severe among Muslims, Muslims are unusually intolerant of homosexuality and other controversial behaviors, and democracy is rare in the Muslim world. Other areas of divergence bear the marks of a Muslim advantage: Violent crime and class-based inequities are less severe among Muslims than non-Muslims. Committed to discovering social facts rather than either stoking prejudices or stroking political sensibilities, Are Muslims Distinctive? represents the first major scientific effort to assess how Muslims and non-Muslims differ--and do not differ--in the contemporary world. Its findings have vital implications for human welfare, interfaith understanding, and the foreign policies of the United States and other Western countries.

Flores, A.
Zivilisation oder Barbarei? Der Islam im historischen Kontext
In der laufenden Debatte über den Islam arbeiten sich Kritiker wie Apologeten an der jeweils anderen Position ab und drohen dabei die Sache selbst aus dem Blick zu verlieren. Demgegenüber plädiert Alexander Flores für eine Ausweitung des Horizonts über den aktuellen Tellerrand hinaus. Er kann zeigen, daß über weite Strecken der islamischen Geschichte die Hegemonie der Religion über das Leben menschliche Freiheit, Kreativität und Produktivität kaum eingeengt hat. Erst bestimmte neuzeitliche Entwicklungen haben dazu beigetragen, daß sich das bis zu einem gewissen Grad geändert hat. Die Gründe dafür liegen aber nicht zwingend in der Logik islamischen Denkens und Handelns, so daß heutige Muslime die Möglichkeit haben, ihre Religion menschenfreundlich zu verstehen, wenn sie das wollen und wenn man ihnen die Gelegenheit dazu einräumt.

Women, Man and God in Modern Islam
Award-winning historian Theodore Friend recently set out alone across Asia and the Middle East on a quest to understand firsthand the life situations of women in Indonesia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey. Woman, Man, and God in Modern Islam recounts Friend's remarkable journey and relates hundreds of encounters and conversations with people he met along the way. Commingling a deep respect for Islam and his faith in the potential of women to change their worlds, Friend presents an open, exploratory outsider's perspective on women in five very different Islamic cultures -- timely fare for all who wish to broaden their world horizons.

Fromherz, Allen James
The Almohads: The Rise of an Islamic Empire
How did an obscure Islamic visionary found an empire? The Almohad Empire at its zenith in the 12th century was the major power in the Mediterranean and North Africa, ruling a huge region from the Atlas Mountains to Andalusia. Effective administration was backed by military force, and the empire was the seat of a 12th-century renaissance in the fortunes of Islamic power in North Africa and the western Muslim world. The effect on the culture of both the Middle East and Europe was to prove lasting. Allen Fromherz, drawing on medieval Arabic and Berber sources, analyses the myth and history surrounding the rise of the Almohad Empire. He shows how Muhammad Ibn Tumart, the son of a minor Berber tribal chief, set off on his mission to reform Islam, then at a low point in its history, battered by the crusades, having lost Jerusalem and been undermined by weak spiritual and political leadership. Muhammad Ibn Tumart was proclaimed Mahdi - one who would herald the golden age of Islam - provided charismatic leadership, unwavering adherence to a fundamentalist monotheistic Islam enforced by holy war, established tribal unity, effective administration and a formidable military force. Here were the sinews of the empire's power and the base for lasting political and cultural influence in the Middle East and Europe.

Islam and the Veil. Theoretical and Regional Contexts
This volume is centred around the theme of veiling in Islam and provides multifarious aspects of the discussion regarding veiling of Muslim women, especially in the West. The issue of veiling has been intensively debated in Western society and has implications for religious liberty, inter-communal relationships and cultural interaction. Islam and the Veil seeks to generate open and objective discussion of this highly important, though controversial, subject, with contributions from distinguished scholars and academics, including female practitioners of Islam. This subject has inflamed passions and generated heated debate in the media in recent years, particularly in the West. This book aims to look at the historical background, theological and social factors underlying the veiling of women in Islam. Such discussion will provide the reader with a well-balanced and unbiased analysis of this important aspect of Islamic practice.

Geertz, C.
Islam Observed: Religious Development in Morocco and Indonesia
"In four brief chapters," writes Clifford Geertz in his preface, "I have attempted both to lay out a general framework for the comparative analysis of religion and to apply it to a study of the development of a supposedly single creed, Islam, in two quite contrasting civilizations, the Indonesian and the Moroccan." Mr. Geertz begins his argument by outlining the problem conceptually and providing an overview of the two countries. He then traces the evolution of their classical religious styles which, with disparate settings and unique histories, produced strikingly different spiritual climates. So in Morocco, the Islamic conception of life came to mean activism, moralism, and intense individuality, while in Indonesia the same concept emphasized aestheticism, inwardness, and the radical dissolution of personality. In order to assess the significance of these interesting developments, Mr. Geertz sets forth a series of theoretical observations concerning the social role of religion

Gerges, F. A.
The Rise and Fall of Al-Qaeda
In this concise and fascinating book, Fawaz A. Gerges argues that Al-Qaeda has degenerated into a fractured, marginal body kept alive largely by the self-serving anti-terrorist bureaucracy it helped to spawn. In The Rise and Fall of Al-Qaeda, Gerges, a leading authority on Islamic extremism, argues that the West has become mired in a "terrorism narrative," stemming from the mistaken belief that it is in danger of a devastating attack by a crippled Al-Qaeda. To explain why Al-Qaeda is no longer a threat, he provides a briskly written history of the organization, showing its emergence from the disintegrating local jihadist movements of the mid-1990s--not the Afghan resistance of the 1980s, as many believe--in "a desperate effort to rescue a sinking ship by altering its course". During this period, Gerges interviewed many jihadis, gaining a first-hand view of the movement that Bin Laden tried to reshape by internationalizing it. He reveals that global jihad has attracted but a small minority within the Arab world and possesses no viable social and popular base. Furthermore, he shows that the attacks of September 11, 2001, were a major miscalculation--no "river" of fighters flooded from Arab countries to defend Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, as Bin Laden expected. Gerges concludes that the movement has splintered into feuding factions, neutralizing itself more effectively than a Predator drone. Forceful, incisive, and written with extensive inside knowledge, this book will alter the debate on global terrorism.

Sie versucht dabei sowohl methodisch als auch inhaltlich neue Wege zu beschreiten. Da im Bereich christlicher Exegese mittlerweile zahlreiche Veroffentlichungen existieren, die sich mit der Relation biblischen Denkens zur fruhjudischen Apokalyptik befassen, behandelt die vorliegende Untersuchung diese Frage aus der Sicht des Korans.

Ibn Tufayl s Hayy Ibn Yaqzan : A Philosophical Tale
The Arabic philosophical fable "Hayy Ibn Yaqzan" is a classic of medieval Islamic philosophy. Ibn Tufayl (d. 1185), an Andalusian philosopher, tells of a happy child raised by a doe on an equatorial island who grows up to discover the truth about the world and his own place in it, unaided - but also unimpeded - by society, language, or tradition. Hayy's discoveries about God, nature, and man challenge the values of the culture in which the tale was written as well as those of every contemporary society. Translator Lenn E. Goodman's commentary places "Hayy Ibn Yaqzan" in its historical and philosophical context. The volume features a new preface and index, as well as an updated bibliography.

The Bible in Arabic: The Scriptures of the 'People of the Book' in the Language of Islam
From the first centuries of Islam to well into the Middle Ages, Jews and Christians produced hundreds of manuscripts containing portions of the Bible in Arabic. Until recently, however, these translations remained largely neglected by Biblical scholars and historians. In telling the story of the Bible in Arabic, this book casts light on a crucial transition in the cultural and religious life of Jews and Christians in Arabic-speaking lands. In pre-Islamic times, Jewish and Christian scriptures circulated orally in the Arabic-speaking milieu. After the rise of Islam--and the Qur'an's appearance as a scripture in its own right--Jews and Christians translated the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament into Arabic for their own use and as a response to the Qur'an's retelling of Biblical narratives. From the ninth century onward, a steady stream of Jewish and Christian translations of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament crossed communal borders to influence the Islamic world. The Bible in Arabic offers a new frame of reference for the pivotal place of Arabic Bible translations in the religious and cultural interactions between Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Haddad, Y.Y. & B.F. Stowasser (eds)
Islamic Law and the Challenges of Modernity
Since Europeans first colonized Arab lands in the 19th century, they have been pressing to have the area's indigenous laws and legal systems accord with Western models. Although most Arab states now have national codes of law that reflect Western influence, fierce internal struggles continue over how to interpret Islamic law, particularly in the areas of gender and family. From different geographical and ideological points across the contemporary Arab world, Haddad and Stowasser demonstrate the range of views on just what Islam's legal heritage in the region should be. For either law or religion classes, Islamic Law and the Challenges of Modernity provides the broad historical overview and particular cases needed to understand this contentious issue.

Haddad, Y.Y. , F. Senzai, J.I. Smith (eds.)
Educating the Muslims of America
As the U.S. Muslim population continues to grow, Islamic schools are springing up across the American landscape. Especially since the events of 9/11, many have become concerned about what kind of teaching is going on behind the walls of these schools, and whether it might serve to foster the seditious purposes of Islamist extremism. The essays collected in this volume look behind those walls and discover both efforts to provide excellent instruction following national educational standards and attempts to inculcate Islamic values and protect students from what are seen as the dangers of secularism and the compromising values of American culture. Also considered here are other dimensions of American Islamic education, including: new forms of institutions for youth and college-age Muslims; home-schooling; the impact of educational media on young children; and the kind of training being offered by Muslim chaplains in universities, hospitals, prisons, and other such settings. Finally the authors look at the ways in which Muslims are rising to the task of educating the American public about Islam in the face of increasing hostility and prejudice. This timely volume is the first dedicated entirely to the neglected topic of Islamic education.

Halverson, J.R.
Searching for a King: Muslim Nonviolence and the Future of Islam
This title rejects the narrative of violence in Islam's history, not as a matter of fact - this narrative clearly exists, as Halverson demonstrates - but rather as a matter of choice, presenting peaceful nonviolence as a new way forward for Muslims. It explores the lives and teachings of Muslim scholars and activists who champion nonviolent interpretations of Islam, including Jawdat Saeed (Syria), Wahiduddin Khan (India), Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Shirazi (Iraq), Mahmoud Muhammad Taha (Sudan), and Abdul-Ghaffar Khan (Afghanistan/Pakistan). The author argues that nonviolence is critical to prosperity for the Muslim world. At a time when violent images of the Muslim world dominate our headlines, Western audiences are growing increasingly interested in a different picture of Islam, specifically the idea of Muslim nonviolence, and what it could mean for the world.

But is nonviolence compatible with the teachings of Islam? Is it practical to suggest that Muslim societies must adopt nonviolence to thrive in today's world? Where is the Muslim equivalent of a Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr? "Searching for a King" offers a comprehensive look into Islamic conceptions of nonviolence, its modern champions, and their readings of Islam's sacred texts, including the Qur'an and traditions of the Prophet Muhammad.

Jeffry R. Halverson asserts that the foundation for nonviolence in Islam already exists. He points to the exemplary lives and teachings of modern Muslim champions of nonviolence, little known in the Western world. Using rich historical narratives and data from leading international agencies, he also makes the case that by eliminating the high costs of warfare, nonviolence opens the door to such important complementary initiatives as micro financing and women's education programs. Ultimately, Halverson endorses Muslim champions of nonviolence and argues for the formulation of a nonviolent version of jihad as an active mode of social transformation.

Hashemi, N.
Islam, Secularism, and Liberal Democracy
Islam's relationship to liberal-democratic politics has emerged as one of the most pressing and contentious issues in international affairs. This book analyzes the relationship between religion, secularism, and liberal democracy, both theoretically and in the context of the contemporary Muslim world. This book challenges a widely held belief among social scientists that religious politics and liberal-democratic development are structurally incompatible. While there are certainly tensions between Islam and democracy - Hashemi draws on Iran as an example - the two are not irreconcilable. He affirms the need for political secularism in order for liberal democracy to flourish, and examines how Muslim societies can develop the political secularism required for liberal democracy when the main political, cultural and intellectual resources that are available are religious. Hashemi argues that democratization and liberalization do not necessarily require a rejection or privatization of religion but do require a reinterpretation of religious ideas about the moral basis of legitimate political authority and individual rights. In fact, he shows, liberal democracy in the West often developed not in strict opposition to religious politics but in concert with it. Hashemi argues that an indigenous theory of Muslim secularism - similar to what developed in the Christian West - is possible and a necessary requirement for the advancement of liberal democracy in Muslim societies.

Hatim al-Razi, A. T. Khalidi (translation)
The Proof of Prophecy, a Parallel Arabic-English Text
This book is the record of a debate that took place in the early tenth century between the famous Ismaili missionary Abu Hatim al-Razi and the even more celebrated Abu Bakr al-Razi, a physician and philosopher who was known to medieval Europe as "Rhazes." These two were towering figures of premodern Islamic thought, and their debate over the dogmatic lines between Sunni and Shi'i theological positions serves to illuminate some of the most intellectually exciting topics of medieval Islamic culture. Abu Hatim, in particular, marshals evidence for his position from the Quran, the hadith, and pre-Islamic Arabic poetry as well as from the Jewish and Christian scriptures. This fresh, vivid debate still holds excitement for modern readers who are interested not merely in medieval Islam but in Christian thought as well.

Shari'a Politics
One of the most important developments in Muslim politics in recent years has been the spread of movements calling for the implementation of shari'a or Islamic law. Shari'a Politics maps the ideals and organization of these movements and examines their implications for the future of democracy, citizen rights, and gender relations in the Muslim world. These studies of eight Muslim-majority societies, and state-of-the-field reflections by leading experts, provide the first comparative investigation of movements for and against implementation of shari'a. These essays reveal that the Muslim public's interest in shari'a does not spring from an unchanging devotion to received religious tradition, but from an effort to respond to the central political and ethical questions of the day.

Being Young and Muslim. New Cultural Politics in the Global South and North
In recent years, there has been a proliferation of interest in youth issues and Muslim youth in particular. Young Muslims have been thrust into the global spotlight in relation to questions about security and extremism, work and migration, and rights and citizenship. This book interrogates the cultures and politics of Muslim youth in the global South and North to understand their trajectories, conditions, and choices. Drawing on wide-ranging research from Indonesia to Iran and Germany to the U.S., it shows that while the majority of young Muslims share many common social, political, and economic challenges, they exhibit remarkably diverse responses to them. Far from being "exceptional," young Muslims often have as much in common with their non-Muslim global generational counterparts as they share among themselves. As they migrate, forge networks, innovate in the arts, master the tools of new media, and assert themselves in the public sphere, Muslim youth have emerged as important cultural and political actors on a world stage.

Hidir, Ozcan
Inleiding tot Hadithwetenschap, ontstaansgeschiedenis, literatuur, methodologie en kritische benaderingen
De Islam heeft twee basisbronnen, te weten de Koran en de soenna, de overgeleverde uitspraken en de handelingen van de Profeet Mohammed. De soenna bestaat uit totaal van elkaar verschillende tekstsoorten, hadiths; deze betreffen uitspraken, handelingen en stilzwijgende goedkeuringen door de Profeet Mohammed van handelingen van zijn metgezellen (sahaabies). De hadith verduidelijkt datgene wat in de Koran is geopenbaard; de hadith kan immers de Koran noch corrigeren, noch vervangen, doch wel verhelderen, aanvullen en concretiseren.

De Koran is in vertaling bij veel mensen in Nederland bekend, maar hadiths zijn dat niet, omdat traditionele hadithliteratuur in Nederland vrijwel niet beschikbaar is. Daarom bestaat er een sterke behoefte aan een boek, dat de hoofdlijnen van de hadithwetenschap, zoals geschiedenis, methodologie, literatuur, vooral literaire kritiek en hadithbenadering van islamitische madzhabs en groeperingen zoals Sjiitisme, Moe'tazila en Ahmadiyya als uitgangspunten neemt.

Deze inleidende studie van de hadith-soenna biedt zowel moslims als niet-moslims een helder beeld van het denken van moslimgeleerden over hadiths en over de manier waarop moslims, zowel in de islamitische landen als in de Westerse wereld, hadithteksten behandelen. Acties, reacties, handelingen en karakters van de moslims worden in de praktijk veelal sterk gevormd door hadiths-soenna. Om die reden is het voor iedereen erg belangrijk om kennis te nemen van de achtergronden van de hadithwetschap, met de bedoeling gedragingen en acties van de moslims, vooral in de Westerse multiculturele context, correct en evenwichtig te kunnen analyseren.

Het vierde beest. God, de strijd om de wereldmacht en het einde van de oudheid
De stormachtige opkomst van het Arabische rijk is een van de grote verhalen uit de oude geschiedenis, net als het einde van de Romeinse republiek of de Perzische invasie van Griekenland. Het is een succesverhaal vol drama en ambitie. Zoals de Romeinen uit het niets leken op te doemen om een enorm imperium te stichten, zo deden de Arabieren dat ook - met dit verschil dat zij er geen eeuwen over deden maar slechts enkele tientallen jaren. Zoals de Grieken een heldenrol speelden tijdens de Perzische oorlogen, zo overwonnen de volgelingen van Mohammed haast onoverkomelijke tegenslagen om als de bovenliggende partij tevoorschijn te komen in de strijd tegen het grootste rijk van de oudheid. En dat deden ze niet om zich te verdedigen. Ze wierpen zich op iedereen die hun in de weg stond.
Het vierde beest is het derde deel in Tom Hollands' trilogie over de oudheid. Het is een intellectuele en artistieke krachttoer van de auteur van Rubicon en Perzisch vuur.

Hourani, A.
Arabic Thought in the Liberal Age
Arabic Thought in the Liberal Age is the most comprehensive study of the modernizing trend of political and social thought in the Arab Middle East. Albert Hourani studies the way in which ideas about politics and society changed during the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth centuries, in response to the expanding influence of Europe. His main attention is given to the movement of ideas in Egypt and Lebanon. He shows how two streams of thought, the one aiming to restate the social principles of Islam, and the other to justify the separation of religion from politics, flowed into each other to create the Egyptian and Arab nationalisms of the present century. The last chapter of the book surveys the main tendencies of thought in the post-war years. Since its publication in 1962, this book has been regarded as a modern classic of interpretation. It was reissued by the Cambridge University Press in 1983 and has subsequently sold over 8000 copies.

Howard-Johnston, J.
Witnesses to a World Crisis. Historians and Histories of the Middle East in the Seventh Century
James Howard-Johnston provides a sweeping and highly readable account of probably the most dramatic single episode in world history - the emergence of a new religion (Islam), the destruction of two established great powers (Roman and Iranian), and the creation of a new world empire by the Arabs, all in the space of not much more than a generation (610-52 AD). Warfare looms large, especially where operations can be followed in some detail, as in Iraq 636-40, in Egypt 641-2 and in the long-drawn out battle for the Mediterranean (649-98). As the first history of the formative phase of Islam to be grounded in the important non-Islamic as well as Islamic sources Witnesses to a World Crisis is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand Islam as a religion and political force, the modern Middle East, and the jihadist impulse, which is as evident today as it was in the seventh century.

Hughes, Aaron W.
Muslim Identities: An Introduction to Islam
Rather than focus solely on theological concerns, this well-rounded introduction takes an expansive view of Islamic ideology, culture, and tradition, sourcing a range of historical, sociological, and literary perspectives. Neither overly critical nor apologetic, this book reflects the rich diversity of Muslim identities across the centuries and counters the unflattering, superficial portrayals of Islam that are shaping public discourse today. Aaron W. Hughes uniquely traces the development of Islam in relation to historical, intellectual, and cultural influences, enriching his narrative with the findings, debates, and methodologies of related disciplines, such as archaeology, history, and Near Eastern studies. Hughes's work challenges the dominance of traditional terms and concepts in religious studies, recasting religion as a set of social and cultural facts imagined, manipulated, and contested by various actors and groups over time. Making extensive use of contemporary identity theory, Hughes rethinks the teaching of Islam and religions in general and helps facilitate a more critical approach to Muslim sources. For readers seeking a non-theological, unbiased, and richly human portrait of Islam, as well as a strong grasp of Islamic study's major issues and debates, this textbook is a productive, progressive alternative to more classic surveys.

Ibn Ishaak
Het leven van Mohammed
Een eeuw na Mohammeds dood in 632 circuleerden er honderden verhalen over zijn leven: sommige stichtend, andere met een politieke pointe, weer andere alleen maar onderhoudend. Ibn Ishaak (gest. ca. 767) heeft er een aantal samengevoegd tot een biografie, waaruit hier een keuze is gemaakt. Er wordt in verhaald over Mohammeds jeugd in Mekka en de eerste tekenen van zijn profeetschap, van koranopenbaringen, de vervolging van vroege moslims door hun stam, zijn wanhoop en zijn emigratie naar Medina, waar hij een staat sticht; de veldslagen tegen Mekka, de afrekening met de joden, haremproblemen, de verbreiding van de islam in Arabië en ten slotte de dood van deze profeet-staatsman. De verhalen zijn uit het leven gegrepen: in glasheldere, soms gespierde taal, tonen zij ons de profeet, met grote aandacht voor het menselijke detail. Waar nodig vergemakkelijken korteinleidingen het lezen. Voor veel moslims is Ibn Ishaaks biografie de meest gezaghebbende.

Ibn Khaldun
De Muqaddima
De Muqaddima of inleiding op Het boek de voorbeelden is in de tweede helft van de veertiende eeuw geschreven door de Noord-Afrikaanse historicus, geschiedfilosoof en hoge ambtenaar Ibn Khaldûn (1332 – 1406). Het bevat tal van beschrijvingen van de nomadische en stedelijke samenlevingen, met als doel algemene wetmatigheden te onderkennen in de geschiedenis. Dit werk heeft de auteur oorspronkelijk opgezet als een inleiding op de geschiedenis van Arabieren, Berbers en andere volken rond de Middellandse Zee, maar het is een eigen leven gaan leiden, als een afgeronde, kritische verhandeling over de sociale en historische processen die aan het menselijk bedrijf ten grondslag liggen. De analyse is zo helder en veelzijdig dat de auteur in de loop der tijd door uiteenlopende wetenschappers in het Westen is ingelijfd als filosoof, socioloog, econoom en demograaf, en bijna steeds met de toevoeging ‘vader van…’ of 'eerste...’. En het is misschien nog allemaal waar ook, want zijn analyse van de geschiedenis is heel veelomvattend en fascinerend. Ibn Khaldûn geeft blijk van helder inzicht, grote denkkracht en originaliteit.

Iqtidar, H.
Secularizing Islamists ? Jamaat-e-Islami and Jamaat-ud-Dawa in Urban Pakistan
"Secularizing Islamists?" provides an in-depth analysis of two Islamist political parties in Pakistan, the highly influential Jama'at-e-Islami and the more militant Jama'at-ud-Da'wa, widely blamed for the November 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, India. Basing her findings on thirteen months of ethnographic work with the two parties in Lahore, Humeira Iqtidar proposes that these Islamists are facilitating secularization within Muslim societies, even as they vehemently oppose secularism. This book offers a fine-grained account of the workings of both parties that challenges received ideas about the relationship between the ideology of secularism and the processes of secularization. Iqtidar particularly illuminates the impact of women on Pakistani Islamism, while arguing that these Islamist groups are inadvertently aiding secularization by forcing a critical engagement with the place of religion in public and private life. She highlights the role that competition among Islamists and the focus on the state as the center of their activity plays in supporting secularization. The result is a significant contribution to our understanding of emerging trends in Muslim politics.

De historische Mohammed: de Mekkaanse verhalen
Heruitgave, verschijning aangekondigd voor 23/5/2014, maar nog niet verschenen

De historische Mohammed: De Mekkaanse verhalen is de neerslag van een zoektocht naar de echte Mohammed. Wie was hij eigenlijk? Met deze vraag in het achterhoofd begon arabist Hans Jansen de islamitische bronnen over het leven van de profeet Mohammed te herlezen en de verschillende overleveringen met elkaar te vergelijken. Gewapend met een uitgebreide kennis van de Arabische wereld en een fikse dosis gezond verstand onderwerpt de auteur de moslimtraditie aan een kritisch onderzoek. Een beroep doen op de hand van God, die een en ander nu eenmaal zo geregeld heeft, is er voor historici immers niet bij. Maar valt de historische waarheid wel te achterhalen? Hoe betrouwbaar zijn de verhalen over de grondlegger van de islam? En hoeveel historische waarheid verdraagt een gelovige?

Dit boek is het eerste deel van een tweeluik. Deel twee handelt over Mohammeds tijd in Medina. Beide delen zijn afzonderlijk te lezen.

Ibn `Ara and the Contemporary West. Beshara and the Ibn `Arabi Society
The teachings of the 12th century Andalusian mystic philosopher, Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi, reached throughout the Muslim world from Spain through China and Indonesia, providing inspiration for a diverse range of intellectual, creative and artistic forms throughout these regions. His ideas are centred on a common spiritual Reality and metaphysical Unity underlying religious and cultural diversity, and they became widely influential following his death in 1240 CE. In the past century, these same universal spiritual aspects of his thought have increasingly inspired Western scholars, artists, creative thinkers and other interested parties from a range of religious and cultural standpoints. This work outlines one key aspect of his influence, through the study of a representative group of people who have been active in promoting his ideas in the English speaking world in the past thirty years by means of the educational activities of the Beshara Trust and the more academic Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Society. Through interviews, discussions, participant observation and the study of published and unpublished documentation, the study investigates how the Beshara School has used Ibn 'Arabi's teachings in assisting a wide range of students from around the world towards personal, spiritual development. It also shows how the Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Society has evolved into an international organisation with increasing influence not only in English speaking countries, but increasingly in the Muslim world from Bosnia to Indonesia. Closely paralleling their earlier historical influences, the works of Ibn 'Arabi are having a rapidly expanding global influence at the present time in many different domains. The powerful cross-cultural, inter-religious appeal of his teachings provides a crucial positive contribution to the growing dialogue between adherents of the world's diverse religious faiths.

Mulla Sadras Transcendent Philosophy
Sadradin Shirazi (1571 - 1640), known also as Mulla Sadra, spoke of the primacy of Being and promoted a new ontology, founding a new epistemology. Mulla Sadra's ontology is an important philosophical turn and contribution to the understanding of the development of Muslim philosophy and thought. This comprehensive study of Mulla Sadra's philosophical thought explores his departure from tradition; his turn to the doctrine of the primacy of Being; the dynamic characteristics of Being and the concept of substantial change; comparisons with Heidegger's fundamental ontology; and the influence of Mulla Sadra's ontology on subsequent Muslim philosophy. Of particular value to students of philosophy, Islamic and Middle Eastern studies, philosophy of religion, and general readers who seek to understand Muslim philosophy, this book explores the significance of the doctrine of Mulla Sadra and its impact on subsequent debates in the Muslim world.

Jihad. The Trail of Political Islam, 4-th ed.
In recent years, the world order has been rocked by an explosive, unexpected and extraordinary phenomenon: political Islam. Beginning in the early 1970s, militants revolted against the regimes in power across the Muslim world and exacerbated political conflicts internationally. Their jihad - or 'Holy Struggle' - aimed to establish a global Islamic state based solely on a strict interpretation of the Qur'an. "Jihad" is the first comprehensive attempt to follow the history and spread of this new political-religious phenomenon today, from the rise of Al Qaeda to the explosion of support for Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad in the wake of the Second Palestinian Intifada. It is the definitive work on what the West has called 'Islamic Fundamentalism', and offers the boldest assessment of its past, its present, and where it might lead in the future. "Jihad" is vital reading for everyone concerned with the state of the world today.

The Terror of God. Attar, Job and the Metaphysical Revolt
How can suffering and injustice be reconciled with the idea that God is good, that he loves humans and is merciful to them? Job's question runs through the history of the three monotheistic religions. Time and again, philosophers, theologians, poets, prophets and laypersons have questioned their image of God in the light of a reality full of hardship. Some see suffering as proof of God's existence, others as a demonstration that there can be no God, while others still respond by rebelling against Him. In this remarkable book Navid Kermani - a distinguished Islamic scholar of Iranian origin - sees this revolt against God as the central motif of one of the great but neglected works of literature: The Book of Suffering by the thirteenth-century Persian poet Faridoddin Attar. Through the prism of Attar's text Kermani tells the story of a religious faith that knows God but is angry with Him: a counter-theology that runs through many religions and connects Judaism, Islam and modernity. With astonishing range and stylistic brilliance Kermani brings Attar to life as one of us, enabling the great Persian poet to speak directly to us today despite the time that separates us.

Kersten, C.
Cosmopolitans and Heretics. New Muslim Intellectuals and the Study of Islam
Dramatic political events involving Muslims across the world have put Islam under increased scrutiny. However, the focus of this attention is generally limited to the political realm and often even further confined by constrictive views of Islamism narrowed down to its most extremist exponents. Much less attention is paid to the parallel development of more liberal alternative Islamic discourses. The final decades of the twentieth-century has also seen the emergence of a Muslim intelligentsia exploring new and creative ways of engaging with the Islamic heritage. Drawing on advances made in the Western human sciences and understanding Islam in comprehensive terms as a civilisation rather than restricting it to religion in a conventional sense their ideas often cause controversy, even inviting accusations of heresy. Cosmopolitans and Heretics examines three of these new Muslim intellectuals who combine a solid grounding in the Islamic tradition with an equally intimate familiarity with the latest achievements of Western scholarship in religion. This cosmopolitan attitude challenges existing stereotypes and makes these thinkers difficult to categorise. Underscoring the global dimensions of new Muslim intellectualism, Kersten analyses contributions to contemporary Islamic thought of the late Nurcholish Madjid, Indonesia's most prominent public intellectual of recent decades, Hasan Hanafi, one of the leading philosophers in Egypt, and the influential French-Algerian historian of Islam Mohammed Arkoun. Emphasising their importance for the rethinking of the study of Islam as a field of academic inquiry, this is the first book of its kind and a welcome addition to the intellectual history of the modern Muslim world.

Khalek, N.
Damascus After the Muslim Conquest. Text and Image in Early Islam
Before it fell to Muslim armies in AD 635-6 Damascus had a long and prestigious history as a center of Christianity. How did the city, which became capital of the Islamic Empire, and its people, negotiate the transition from a late antique, or early Byzantine world to an Islamic culture? In this innovative study, Nancy Khalek demonstrates that the changes that took place in Syria during the formative period of Islamic life were not a matter of the replacement of one civilization by another as a result of military conquest, but rather of shifting relationships and practices in a multi-faceted social and cultural setting. Even as late antique forms of religion and culture persisted, the formation of Islamic identity was effected by the people who constructed, lived in, and narrated the history of their city. Khalek draws on the evidence of architecture, and the testimony of pilgrims, biographers, geographers, and historians to shed light on this process of identity formation. Offering a fresh approach to the early Islamic period, she moves the study of Islamic origins beyond a focus on issues of authenticity and textual criticism, and initiates an interdisciplinary discourse on narrative, story-telling, and the interpretations of material culture.

Between Heaven and Hell: Islam, Salvation, and the Fate of Others
A recent Pew survey of American Muslims found that the 56 percent believed that "many religions" can lead to Paradise; only one-third held that Islam "is the one, true faith leading to eternal life." Ours is a world of ever-increasing interconnectedness. More and more Muslims today work with, befriend, and marry non-Muslims. It is perhaps not surprising, then, that a significant number of American Muslims would choose to believe that God will save their Christian parents, Jewish spouses, Buddhist neighbors, Hindu friends, or even atheist coworkers. The essays in this volume look at the views of Muslim theologians on this matter. Most maintain that while faith in the fundamental doctrines of Islam is theoretically required for salvation, God will excuse non-Muslims who never encountered the divine message conveyed by the Prophet Muhammad. Some go a step further, and hold that God may redeem non-Muslims who were never exposed to the message in a manner that could prompt contemplation and encourage conversion. A third group of theologians-not the kind typically found at major Islamic seminaries and universities-argues that God may even save and reward non-Muslims who had a "compelling" encounter with the Islamic message yet chose to remain outside the fold. The diverse advocates of this last approach face a daunting task: demonstrating that their seemingly modern doctrine is compatible with the Islamic ethos.

Between Heaven and Hell is intended to foster appreciation for the diverse and novel approaches taken by scholars of Islam when addressing the consequential topic of soteriology and the fate of Others.

The Islamic Challenge. Politics and Religion in Western Europe
The voices in this book belong to parliamentarians, city councillors, doctors and engineers, a few professors, lawyers and social workers, owners of small businesses, translators, and community activists. They are also all Muslims, who have decided to become engaged in political and civic organizations. And for that reason, they constantly have to explain themselves, mostly in order to say who they are not. They are not fundamentalists, not terrorists, and most do not support the introduction of Islamic religious law in Europe - especially not its application to Christians. This book is about who these people are, and what they want. This book is based on three hundred interviews with European Muslim leaders from six European countries: Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Great Britain, France, and Germany. The question of Islam in Europe is not a matter of global war and peace but raises difficult questions about the positions of Christianity and Islam in public life, and about European identities. Europe's Muslim political leaders are not aiming to overthrow liberal democracy and to replace secular law with Islamic religious law. Those are the positions of a minority. There is not one Muslim position on how Islam should develop in Europe but many views, and most Muslims are rather looking for ways to build institutions that will allow European Muslims to practice their religion in a way that is compatible with social integration.

Kung, H.
De Islam: De toekomst van een wereldreligie
Tweede druk, tekst ongewijzigd

In ‘De islam’ geeft Kung een grondig en compleet overzicht van de qua aanhang op een na grootste wereldgodsdienst. Hij toont aan dat er zonder een dialoog met de islam geen uitzicht is op een duurzame wereldvrede of op een harmonieus samenleven met moslims in Europa. Wie de huidige wereld wil begrijpen, moet de islam begrijpen.

Kung behandelt onder meer de veranderingen in het verleden, de onderscheiden stromingen, en kiest positie ten opzichte van de klemmende vragen van onze tijd. Hij geeft een omvattende analyse van de politieke, culturele en religieuze betekenis van de islam.

Al tientallen jaren vormen de wereldreligies het centrale thema voor Hans Kung. Als voorvechter van de dialoog tussen de culturen schreef hij er verschillende boeken over, die in veel talen verschenen zijn.

Kuran, T.
The Long Divergence. How Islamic Law Held Back the Middle East
In the year 1000, the economy of the Middle East was at least as advanced as that of Europe. But by 1800, the region had fallen dramatically behind - in living standards, technology, and economic institutions. In short, the Middle East had failed to modernize economically as the West surged ahead. What caused this long divergence? And why does the Middle East remain drastically underdeveloped compared to the West? In "The Long Divergence", one of the world's leading experts on Islamic economic institutions and the economy of the Middle East provides a new answer to these long-debated questions. Timur Kuran argues that what slowed the economic development of the Middle East was not colonialism or geography, still less Muslim attitudes or some incompatibility between Islam and capitalism. Rather, starting around the tenth century, Islamic legal institutions, which had benefited the Middle Eastern economy in the early centuries of Islam, began to act as a drag on development by slowing or blocking the emergence of central features of modern economic life - including private capital accumulation, corporations, large-scale production, and impersonal exchange. By the nineteenth century, modern economic institutions began to be transplanted to the Middle East, but its economy has not caught up. And there is no quick fix today. Low trust, rampant corruption, and weak civil societies - all characteristic of the region's economies today and all legacies of its economic history - will take generations to overcome. "The Long Divergence" opens up a frank and honest debate on a crucial issue that even some of the most ardent secularists in the Muslim world have hesitated to discuss.

Democracy, Islam, and Secularism in Turkey
While Turkey has grown as a world power, promoting the image of a progressive and stable nation, several choices in policy have strained its relationship with the East and the West. Providing historical, social, and religious context for this behavior, the essays in Democracy, Islam, and Secularism in Turkey examine issues relevant to Turkish debates and global concerns, from the state's position on religion to its involvement with the European Union. Written by experts in a range of disciplines, the chapters explore the toleration of diversity during the Ottoman Empire's classical period; the erosion of ethno-religious heterogeneity in modern, pre-democratic times; Kemalism and its role in modernization and nation building; the changing political strategies of the military; and the effect of possible EU membership on domestic reforms. The essays also offer a cross-Continental comparison of "multiple secularisms," as well as political parties, considering especially Turkey's Justice and Development Party in relation to Europe's Christian Democratic parties. Contributors tackle critical research questions, such as the legacy of the Ottoman Empire's ethno-religious plurality and the way in which Turkey's assertive secularism can be softened to allow greater space for religious actors. They address the military's "guardian" role in Turkey's secularism, the implications of recent constitutional amendments for democratization, and the consequences and benefits of Islamic activism's presence within a democratic system. No other collection confronts Turkey's contemporary evolution so vividly and thoroughly or offers such expert analysis of its crucial social and political systems.

Kurzman, C.
The Missing Martyrs. Why There Are So Few Muslim Terrorists
Why are there so few Muslim terrorists? With more than a billion Muslims in the world--many of whom supposedly hate the West and ardently desire martyrdom--why don't we see terrorist attacks every day? Where are the missing martyrs? In this startlingly counterintuitive book, a leading authority on Islamic movements demonstrates that terrorist groups are thoroughly marginal in the Muslim world. Charles Kurzman draws on government sources, public opinion surveys, election results, and in-depth interviews with Muslims in the Middle East and around the world. He finds that young Muslims are indeed angry with what they see as imperialism--and especially at Western support for local dictatorships. But revolutionary Islamists have failed to reach them, as can be seen from the terrorists' own websites and publications, which constantly bemoan the dearth of willing recruits. Kurzman notes that it takes only a small cadre of committed killers to wreak unspeakable havoc. But that very fact underscores his point. As easy as terrorism is to commit, few Muslims turn to violence. Out of 140,000 murders in the United States since 9/11, Islamist terrorists have killed at most three dozen people. Of the 150,000 people who die each day, worldwide, Islamist militants account for fewer than fifty fatalities--and only ten per day outside of the hotspots of Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan. The real bulwark against Islamist violence, Kurzman finds, is Muslims themselves, who reject both the goals of the terrorists and their bloody means. With each bombing, the terrorists lose support among Muslims. Incisive and authoritative, The Missing Martyrs provides much-needed corrective to deep-seated and destructive misconceptions about Muslims and the Islamic world. The threat of Islamist terrorism is real, Kurzman shows, but its dimensions are, so far, tightly confined.

Lacroix, S.
Awakening Islam : Religious Dissent in Contemporary Saudi Arabia
Amidst the roil of war and instability across the Middle East, the West is still searching for ways to understand the Islamic world. Stephane Lacroix has now given us a penetrating look at the political dynamics of Saudi Arabia, one of the most opaque of Muslim countries and the place that gave birth to Osama bin Laden. The result is a history that has never been told before. Lacroix shows how thousands of Islamist militants from Egypt, Syria, and other Middle Eastern countries, starting in the 1950s, escaped persecution and found refuge in Saudi Arabia, where they were integrated into the core of key state institutions and society. The transformative result was the Sahwa, or "Islamic Awakening," an indigenous social movement that blended political activism with local religious ideas. Awakening Islam offers a pioneering analysis of how the movement became an essential element of Saudi society, and why, in the late 1980s, it turned against the very state that had nurtured it. Though the "Sahwa Insurrection" failed, it has bequeathed the world two very different, and very determined, heirs: the Islamo-liberals, who seek an Islamic constitutional monarchy through peaceful activism, and the neo-jihadis, supporters of bin Laden's violent campaign. Awakening Islam is built upon seldom-seen documents in Arabic, numerous travels through the country, and interviews with an unprecedented number of Saudi Islamists across the ranks of today's movement. The result affords unique insight into a closed culture and its potent brand of Islam, which has been exported across the world and which remains dangerously misunderstood.

Public Violence in Islamic Societies
This exploration of the role of violence in the history of Islamic societies considers the subject particularly in the context of its implementation as a political strategy to claim power over the public sphere. Violence, both among Muslims and between Muslims and non-Muslims, has been the object of research in the past, as in the case of jihad, martyrdom, rebellion or criminal law. This book goes beyond these concerns in addressing, in a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary fashion, how violence has functioned as a basic principle of Islamic social and political organization in a variety of historical and geographical contexts. Contributions trace the use of violence by governments in the history of Islam, shed light on legal views of violence, and discuss artistic and religious responses. Authors lay out a spectrum of attitudes rather than trying to define an Islamic doctrine of violence. Bringing together some of the most substantive and innovative scholarship on this important topic to date, this volume contributes to the growing interest, both scholarly and general, in the question of Muslim attitudes toward violence.

Lapidus, I.M.
Islamic Societies to the Nineteenth Century. A Global History
First published in 1988, Ira Lapidus' A History of Islamic Societies has become a classic in the field, enlightening students, scholars, and others with a thirst for knowledge about one of the world's great civilizations. This book, based on fully revised and updated parts one and two of this monumental work,describes the transformations of Islamic societies from their beginning in the seventh century, through their diffusion across the globe, into the challenges of the nineteenth century. The story focuses on the organization of families and tribes, religious groups and states, showing how they were transformed by their interactions with other religious and political communities. The book concludes with the European commercial and imperial interventions that initiated a new set of transformations in the Islamic world, and the onset of the modern era. Organized in narrative sections for the history of each major region, with innovative, analytic summary introductions and conclusions, this book is a unique endeavour.

Muslims and the New Media. Historical and Contemporary Debates
Scholars from an extensive range of academic disciplines have focused on Islam in cyberspace and the media, but there are few historical studies that have outlined how Muslim 'ulama' have discussed and debated the introduction and impact of these new media.

Muslims and the New Media explores how the introduction of the latest information and communication technologies are mirroring changes and developments within society, as well as the Middle East's relationship to the West. Examining how reformist and conservative Muslim 'ulama' have discussed the printing press, photography, the broadcasting media (radio and television), the cinema, the telephone and the Internet, case studies provide a contextual background to the historical, social and cultural situations that have influenced theological discussions; focusing on how the 'ulama' have debated the 'usefulness' or 'dangers' of the information and communication media. By including both historical and contemporary examples, this book exposes historical trajectories as well as different (and often contested) positions in the Islamic debate about the new media.

Laurence, J.
Emancipation of Europes Muslims. The State's Role in Minority Integration
`The Emancipation of Europe`s Muslims` traces how governments across Western Europe have responded to the growing presence of Muslim immigrants in their countries over the past fifty years. Drawing on hundreds of in-depth interviews with government officials and religious leaders in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Morocco, and Turkey, Jonathan Laurence challenges the widespread notion that Europe`s Muslim minorities represent a threat to liberal democracy. He documents how European governments in the 1970s and 1980s excluded Islam from domestic institutions, instead inviting foreign powers like Saudi Arabia, Algeria, and Turkey to oversee the practice of Islam among immigrants in European host societies. But since the 1990s, amid rising integration problems and fears about terrorism, governments have aggressively stepped up efforts to reach out to their Muslim communities and incorporate them into the institutional, political, and cultural fabrics of European democracy. This book places these efforts - particularly the government-led creation of Islamic councils - within a broader theoretical context and gleans insights from government interactions with groups such as trade unions and Jewish communities at previous critical junctures in European state-building. By examining how state-mosque relations in Europe are linked to the ongoing struggle for religious and political authority in the Muslim-majority world, Laurence sheds light on the geopolitical implications of a religious minority's transition from outsiders to citizens. This book offers a much-needed reassessment that foresees the continuing integration of Muslims into European civil society and politics in the coming decades.

An Introduction to Classical Islamic Philosophy.
Islamic philosophy is a unique and fascinating form of thought, and particular interest lies in its classical (Greek-influenced) period, when many of the ideas of Greek philosophy were used to explore the issues and theoretical problems which arise in trying to understand the Qur'an and Islamic practice. In this revised and expanded 2001 edition of his classic introductory work, Oliver Leaman examines the distinctive features of Classical Islamic philosophy and offers detailed accounts of major individual thinkers. In contrast to many previous studies that have treated this subject as only of historical interest, he offers analysis of the key arguments within Islamic philosophy so that the reader can engage with them and assess their strengths and weaknesses. His book will interest a wide range of readers in philosophy, religious studies and Islamic studies.

Islamic Aesthetics
Is there something unique about Islamic art? This book argues that there is not -- that Islam does not play an leading role in the aesthetic judgements that we should make about objects created in the Islamic world. It is often argued that a very special sort of consciousness went into creating Islamic art, that it is very different from other forms of art, that Muslims are not allowed to portray human beings in their art, and that calligraphy is the supreme Islamic art form. Oliver Leaman challenges all these ideas, showing them to be misguided. Instead he suggests that the sort of criteria we should apply to Islamic art are identical to the criteria applicable to art in general, and that the attempt to put Islamic art into a special category is a result of orientalism Key Features: *Criticises the influence of Sufism on Islamic aesthetics *Deals with issues arising in painting, calligraphy, architecture, gardens, literature, films, and music *Pays close attention to the Qur'an *Argument includes examples from history, art, philosophy, theology and the artefacts of the Islamic world The reader is invited to view Islamic art as no more and no less than ordinary art, neither better nor worse than anything else that counts as art. It follows that there are no special techniques required in Islamic aesthetics as compared with any other form of aesthetics.

Leaman, O.
Islamic Philosophy. An Introduction
Although Islamic philosophy represents one of the leading philosophical traditions in the world, it has only recently begun to receive the attention it deserves in the non-Islamic world. This important text provides a concise and accessible introduction to the major movements, thinkers and concepts within that tradition, from the foundation of Islam to the present day. Ever since the growth of Islam as a religious and political movement, Muslim thinkers have sought to understand the theoretical aspects of their faith by using philosophical concepts. Leaman outlines this history and demonstrates that, although the development of Islamic philosophy is closely linked with Islam itself, its form is not essentially connected to any particular religion, and its leading ideas and arguments are of general philosophical significance. The author illustrates the importance of Islamic thought within philosophy through the use of many modern examples. He describes and contrasts the three main movements in Islamic philosophy Peripatetic, Sufi and Illuminationist and examines the Persian as well as the Arabic traditions. Wide coverage is given to key aspects of Islamic philosophy, including epistemology, ontology, politics, ethics and philosophy of language, providing readers with a balanced view of the discipline. The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated throughout, including the addition of two new chapters on recent debates surrounding Islam's need for an enlightenment, and on the future of Islamic philosophy.

The Qur’an: An Encyclopedia
he Qur'an is the source of inspiration for one of the world's major religions, followed today by over a billion people. It plays a central role in Islam and ever since it appeared fourteen hundred years ago has been the subject of intense debate. Some of this has been carried out by Muslims and some by those hostile or indifferent to Islam, producing a very wide range of views. Authored by forty-three international experts, the objective of "The Qur'an: An Encyclopedia" is to present this diversity of thought, approach and school without priority, in order to give a strong appreciation of the range of response that the text has provoked throughout its history and providing students and researchers with a powerful one-volume resource covering all aspects of the text and its reception.

The Islamophobia Industry: How the Right Manufactures Fear of Muslims
The Islamophobia Industry is a disturbing account of the rising tide of Islamophobia sweeping through the United States and Europe. Nathan Lean takes us through a world of conservative bloggers, right-wing talk show hosts, evangelical religious leaders and politicians, all united in their quest to exhume the ghosts of 9/11 and convince their compatriots that Islam is the enemy. Lean uncovers their scare tactics, reveals their motives and exposes the ideologies that drive their propaganda machine. Situating Islamophobia within a long history of national and international phobias, The Islamophobia Industry challenges the narrative of fear that has for too long dominated discussions about Muslims and Islam.

Legends of the Fire Spirits. Jinn and Genies from Arabia to Zanzibar
In the magical tale of Aladdin in "The Arabian Nights", the genie that suddenly appears out of the lamp is powerful, playful and utterly mysterious. Supernatural, shape-shifting figures have been given many names over the ages - genie, demon, spirit, ghoul, shaitan and jinn. Those who have seen them believe jinn shadow us in our daily lives, causing endless mischief, providing amazing services and sometimes inducing sheer terror. "Legends of the Fire Spirits" explores the enduring phenomenon of the jinn. From North Africa to Central Asia, from the Mediterranean to sub-Saharan Africa and beyond, this riveting book draws on long-forgotten ancient testimonies, medieval histories, colonial records, anthropologists' reports and travellers' tales to explore the different types of jinn, their behavior, society, culture and long history of contact with humankind. It documents their links with famous figures in history and illustrates the varied and vivid portrayals of jinn in world literature. In essence, "Legends of the Fire Spirits" is a magnificent and indispensable portrayal of the rich folklore of the Islamic world.

Islamitische filosofie: een geschiedenis
De islamitische wijsbegeerte heeft zijn wortels in het antiek-Griekse denken, maar zet deze traditie op een geheel eigen wijze voort. Daardoor behandelt ze een voor ons relatief vertrouwde thematiek, maar slaat ze daarbinnen verrassende nieuwe paden in.

Dit helder geschreven overzicht presenteert de uitgangspunten en doctrines van de grote moslimdenkers van het Midden-Oosten, Noord-Afrika, islamitisch Spanje en het Perzische cultuurgebied. Deze denkers, onder wie Avicenna, Averroes, Ibn Chaldoen en Ibn al-Arabi, hebben denkbeelden ontwikkeld die tot op de dag van vandaag hun invloed doen gelden. Islamitische filosofie. Een geschiedenis plaatst hun werk in een culturele en sociale context. Zodoende behandelt het ook de intellectuele achtergronden van allerlei hedendaagse religieuze en culturele stromingen in de islamitische wereld. Speciale aandacht wordt besteed aan poetica en muziektheorie, mystiek, logica en taalfilosofie, en politieke theorie.

Het zijn net mensen. Beelden uit het Midden-Oosten
Vijf jaar lang, van 1998 tot 2003, werkte Joris Luyendijk als correspondent in de Arabische wereld. Hij liep vluchtelingenkampen af en sloppenwijken, Joodse nederzettingen en fundamentalistische bolwerken. Hij sprak met terroristen en bezetters, met slachtoffers, daders en hun familie. Hij doorstond beschietingen en bombardementen, doodsbedreigingen en zelfmoordaanslagen. Hoe meer hij zelf meemaakte, hoe meer het begon te knagen. Want wat gaapte er een kloof tussen wat hij als correspondent met eigen ogen zag, en wat hij daarvan kon laten zien op radio, tv en in de krant. In Het zijn net mensen probeert Luyendijk iets van die kloof te dichten. Met pakkende voorbeelden en vol humor legt hij uit waarom het zo moeilijk is om iets van het Midden-Oosten te begrijpen, en welke rol de media daarin spelen.

Islam Through Western Eyes. From the Crusades to the War on Terrorism
Despite the West's growing involvement in Muslim societies, conflicts, and cultures, its inability to understand or analyze the Islamic world threatens any prospect for East--West rapprochement. Impelled by one thousand years of anti-Muslim ideas and images, the West has failed to engage in any meaningful or productive way with the world of Islam. Formulated in the medieval halls of the Roman Curia and courts of the European Crusaders and perfected in the newsrooms of Fox News and CNN, this anti-Islamic discourse determines what can and cannot be said about Muslims and their religion, trapping the West in a dangerous, dead-end politics that it cannot afford. In Islam Through Western Eyes, Jonathan Lyons unpacks Western habits of thinking and writing about Islam, conducting a careful analysis of the West's grand totalizing narrative across one thousand years of history. He observes the discourse's corrosive effects on the social sciences, including sociology, politics, philosophy, theology, international relations, security studies, and human rights scholarship. He follows its influence on research, speeches, political strategy, and government policy, preventing the West from responding effectively to its most significant twenty-first-century challenges: the rise of Islamic power, the emergence of religious violence, and the growing tension between established social values and multicultural rights among Muslim immigrant populations. Through the intellectual "archaeology" of Michel Foucault, Lyons reveals the workings of this discourse and its underlying impact on our social, intellectual, and political lives. He then addresses issues of deep concern to Western readers -- Islam and modernity, Islam and violence, and Islam and women -- and proposes new ways of thinking about the Western relationship to the Islamic world.

MacLean, G. & N Matar
Britain and the Islamic World, 1558-1713
Before they had an empire in the East, the British travelled into the Islamic world to pursue trade and to form strategic alliances against the Catholic powers of France and Spain. First-hand encounters with Muslims, Jews, Greek Orthodox, and other religious communities living together under tolerant Islamic rule changed forever the way Britons thought about Islam, just as the goods they imported from Islamic countries changed forever the way they lived. Britain and the Islamic World tells the story of how, for a century and a half, merchants and diplomats travelled from Morocco to Istanbul, from Aleppo to Isfahan, and from Hormuz to Surat, and discovered a world that was more fascinating than fearful. Gerald MacLean and Nabil Matar examine the place of Islam and Muslims in English thought, and how British monarchs dealt with supremely powerful Muslim rulers. They document the importance of diplomatic and mercantile encounters, show how the writings of captives spread unreliable information about Islam and Muslims, and investigate observations by travellers and clergymen who reported meetings with Jews, eastern Christians, Armenians, and Shi'ites. They also trace how trade and the exchange of material goods with the Islamic world shaped how people in Britain lived their lives and thought about themselves.

Jonge denkers over grote religies. Islam
In 'Islam' stelt Frank Meester de vraag centraal hoe de religieuze en morele opvattingen van moslims kunnen samengaan met seculiere, westerse waarden en normen. Hij sprak daarvoor met zes jonge, gematigde moslims van Nederlandse, Turkse en Marokkaanse afkomst. Zij bepalen het gezicht van de 'polderislam' van morgen.
Wat voor moreel oordeel hebben ze over Frank Meester, die zelf niet in God gelooft en het homohuwelijk prima vindt? En waarom doen deze poldermoslims geen moeite om hem te bekeren, als ze zo zijn kans kunnen vergroten op het eeuwige leven in het paradijs?

The Muslim Brotherhood in Europe
The Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East has always attracted widely divergent attention. Scholars have regarded it both as the source of terrorism, and, more recently as the potential harbinger of democratization. The Muslim Brotherhood in Europe has attracted far less attention. But heavily influenced by its ambiguous reputation in the Middle East it has led to widespread speculation about its character.

Its critics regard the European organizations as part of a suspicious, secretive, centrally led world-wide organization that enhances the alienation of Muslims in Europe. Its sympathizers, on the other hand, regard the Brotherhood as a moderate movement that has been Europeanized and promotes integration. This volume brings together experts on the European Muslim Brotherhood who address some of the main issues on which the debate has concentrated.

After an introduction dealing with the European debate in the press, the first section shows that Brotherhood consists primarily of a network of informal ties, which have developed a host of localized practices and contradictory trends.

The second part deals with the Brotherhood organizations in different European countries and traces their highly specific trajectories and relations with the local non-Muslim press and authorities. The third section concentrates on the ideological developments of the movement in the Middle East and Europe.

Mirsepassi, A.
Political Islam, Iran, and the Enlightenment. Philosophies of Hope and Despair
Ali Mirsepassi's book presents a powerful challenge to the dominant media and scholarly construction of radical Islamist politics, and their anti-Western ideology, as a purely Islamic phenomenon derived from insular, traditional and monolithic religious 'foundations'. It argues that the discourse of political Islam has strong connections to important and disturbing currents in Western philosophy and modern Western intellectual trends. The work demonstrates this by establishing links between important contemporary Iranian intellectuals and the central influence of Martin Heidegger's philosophy. We are also introduced to new democratic narratives of modernity linked to diverse intellectual trends in the West and in non-Western societies, notably in India, where the ideas of John Dewey have influenced important democratic social movements. As the first book to make such connections, it promises to be an important contribution to the field and will do much to overturn some pervasive assumptions about the dichotomy between East and West.

Moghadam, A.
The Globalization of Martyrdom : Al Qaeda, Salafi Jihad, and the Diffusion of Suicide Attacks
This groundbreaking volume examines the rise and spread of suicide attacks over the past decade. Sorting through 1,270 terror strikes between 1981 and 2007, Assaf Moghadam attributes their recent proliferation to the mutually related ascendance of al Qaeda and its guiding ideology, Salafi Jihad, an extreme interpretation of Islam that rejects national boundaries and seeks to create a global Muslim community. In exploring the roots of the extreme radicalization represented by Salafism, Moghadam finds many causes, including Western dominance in the Arab world, the physical diffusion of Salafi institutions and actors, and the element of opportunity created by the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. He uses individual examples from the Middle East, Southwest Asia, and Europe to show how the elite leaders of al Qaeda and affiliated groups and their foot soldiers interact with one another and how they garner support-and a growing number of converts and attackers-from the Muslim community. Based on over a decade of empirical research and a critical examination of existing thought on suicide attacks, Moghadam distinguishes the key characteristics separating globalized suicide strikes from the traditional, localized pattern that previously prevailed. This unflinching analysis provides new information about the relationship between ideology and suicide attacks and recommends policies focused on containing Salafi Jihadism.

Morey, P., A. Yagin
Framing Muslims. Stereotyping and Representation after 9/11
Can Muslims ever fully be citizens of the West? Can the values of Islam ever be brought into accord with the individual freedoms central to the civic identity of Western nations? Not if you believe what you see on TV. Whether the bearded fanatic, the veiled, oppressed female, or the shadowy terrorist plotting our destruction, crude stereotypes permeate public representations of Muslims in the United States and western Europe. But these "Muslims" are caricatures--distorted abstractions, wrought in the most garish colors, that serve to reduce the diversity and complexity of the Muslim world to a set of fixed objects suitable for sound bites and not much else. In Framing Muslims: Stereotyping and Representation after 9/11, Peter Morey and Amina Yaqin dissect the ways in which stereotypes depicting Muslims as an inherently problematic presence in the West are constructed, deployed, and circulated in the public imagination, producing an immense gulf between representation and a considerably more complex reality. Crucially, they show that these stereotypes are not solely the province of crude-minded demagogues and their tabloid megaphones, but multiply as well from the lips of supposedly progressive elites, even those who presume to speak "from within," on Muslims' behalf. Based on nuanced analyses of cultural representations in both the United States and the UK, the authors draw our attention to a circulation of stereotypes about Muslims that sometimes globalizes local biases and, at other times, brings national differences into sharper relief.

Mulder, Eildert, Thomas Milo
De omstreden bronnen van de Islam
Het klassieke, orthodoxe verhaal over het ontstaan van de Koran en de islam ondervindt tegenwerpingen vanuit verschillende invalshoeken. Wat houden deze tegenwerpingen in en hoe kunnen ze en bijdrage leveren aan het debat over de islam?

In het jaar 600 was er nog geen islam en twee eeuwen later wel. Dat staat vast. Maar wat gebeurde er tussentijds? Het orthodox islamitische verhaal oogt glashelder: de Koran zou in 23 jaar zijn geopenbaard aan een profeet, Mohammed. Na diens dood stichtten zijn aanhangers een wereldrijk. Veel westerse islamologen volgen die visie eerbiedig. Maar vakgenoten betwijfelen dit scenario. Ze baseren zich op oude koranhandschriften, berichten van tijdgenoten en archeologisch materiaal, zoals inscripties en munten. Hun conclusie: het orthodoxe verhaal klopt niet. Zo zit volgens Christoph Luxenberg de Arabische tekst van de Koran vol met invloeden uit het nauw verwante Aramees. De maagden van het paradijs, stelt hij, zijn druiven. Ook de historiciteit van Mohammed komt in dit boek aan de orde. De eerste kaliefen op de oude munten blijken getooid met christelijke symbolen en de Koran vertoont sporen van meerdere auteurs.

Belangrijker dan de conclusies zijn de vragen die in De omstreden bronnen van de islam aan de orde komen. Zij bieden een verrassend perspectief voor het onderzoek naar het ontstaan van de islam. De auteurs willen de discussie daarover op een integere manier voeren. De omstreden bronnen van de islam is daarmee een onmisbaar boek voor iedereen die is geinteresseerd in de geschiedenis van de islam.

History of Islamic Philosophy
Islamic philosophy has often been treated as being largely of historical interest, belonging to the history of ideas rather than to philosophical study. This volume successfully overturns such a view. Emphasising the living nature and rich diversity of the subject, it examines the main thinkers and schools of thought, from the earliest period to the present day. discusses the key concepts of Islamic philosophy, and in related traditions in Greek and Western philosophy. covers a vast geographical area, analysing Islamic philosophy in the Arabic, Persian, Indian, Turkish and South East Asian worlds as well as in the Jewish tradition. This indispensable reference tool includes a comprehensive bibliography and an extensive index.

Neuwirth, A.
Der Koran als Text der Spatantike. Ein europaischer Zugang
Ist der Koran eine Botschaft an die Heiden der arabischen Halbinsel, die innerhalb von nur 22 Jahren zur Grundung einer neuen Religion gefuhrt hat? Ist er die schon kurz nach dem Tod ihres Verkunders kanonisierte heilige Schrift, die uns dennoch authentisch erhalten ist? Angesichts des beispiellosen Erfolgs des Koran ist es kein Wunder, dass diese Darstellung immer wieder in Frage gestellt und Hypothesen formuliert werden, die die fruhislamische Geschichte umschreiben und den Koran in einer anderen Region, zu einer anderen Zeit und sogar ohne die Mitwirkung Muhammads entstehen lassen. Alle bisherigen Rekonstruktionen sind aber miteinander unvereinbar und ergeben kein plausibles Bild der Ereignisse, sondern werfen nur zahllose neue Probleme auf.

Die Frage muss anders lauten: Ist der Koran wirklich ein rein islamischer und damit dem westlichen Leser fremder Text? Oder ist er nicht eher eine neue und eigenwillige Stimme in jenem Konzert spatantiker Debatten, mit denen auch die theologischen Grundlagen der judischen und christlichen Religion gelegt worden sind? Nicht den Koran mussen wir aufgrund neuer Handschriftenfunde oder mit Hilfe linguistischer Experimente ummodellieren - unsere Perspektive auf den Koran mussen wir entscheidend andern, wenn wir seine revolutionare Neuheit in den Blick bekommen wollen.

Nissen, H. J. & P. Heine
From Mesopotamia to Iraq. A Concise History
The recent reopening of Iraq's National Museum attracted worldwide attention, underscoring the country's dual image as both the cradle of civilization and a contemporary geopolitical battleground. A sweeping account of the rich history that has played out between these chronological poles, "From Mesopotamia to Iraq" looks back through ten thousand years of the region's deeply significant yet increasingly overshadowed past. Hans J. Nissen and Peter Heine begin by explaining how ancient Mesopotamian inventions - including urban society, a system of writing, and mathematical texts that anticipated Pythagoras - profoundly influenced the course of human history. These towering innovations, they go on to reveal, have sometimes obscured the major role Mesopotamia continued to play on the world stage. Alexander the Great, for example, was fascinated by Babylon and eventually died there. Seventh-century Muslim armies made the region one of their first conquests outside the Arabian peninsula. And the Arab caliphs who ruled for centuries after the invasion built the magnificent city of Baghdad, attracting legions of artists and scientists. Tracing the evolution of this vibrant country into a contested part of the Ottoman Empire, a twentieth-century British colony, a republic ruled by Saddam Hussein, and the democracy it has become, Nissen and Heine repair the fragmented image of Iraq that has come to dominate our collective imagination. In hardly any other continuously inhabited part of the globe can we chart such developments in politics, economy, and culture across so extended a period of time. By doing just that, the authors illuminate nothing less than the forces that have made the world what it is today.

Die dunklen Anfange. Neue Forschungen zur Entstehung und fruehen Geschichte des Islam
Anhand der wenigen datierbaren und lokalisierbaren Zeugnisse aus dem 7. und 8. Jahrhundert christlicher Zeitrechnung werden in diesem Band Konturen der Entwicklung des fruhen Islam aufgezeigt: Bei den Munzfunden aus dieser Zeit und auch bei der Inschrift im Felsendom zu Jerusalem handelt es sich in Wirklichkeit um christliche Texte und Symbole, in denen eine syrisch-arabische Theologie dokumentiert ist. Der Versuch, die uberkommenen Zeugen dieser Epoche in ihren ursprunglichen Bedeutungszusammenhang zu stellen, ergibt eine vollig neue Sicht auf die fruhe Entwicklungsgeschichte der islamischen Religion.

Delicate Debates on Islam. Policymakers and Academics Speaking with Each Other
Beleidsmakers krijgen veel lastige vragen rond de Islam en moslims. Ze moeten vaak het antwoord daarop schuldig blijven omdat ze niet weten welke beelden over islam en moslims juist zijn en welke niet. Veel Westerse landen, inclusief Nederland zijn het laatste decennium sterk gepolariseerd. Onze vroegere reputatie van tolerantie en kosmopolitisme gaat langzaam in rook op. In 'Delicate Debates on Islam' proberen wetenschappers antwoorden te vinden op een aantal van de vragen. Zij zijn bijeengebracht door het Centrum voor de studie van Islam en Samenleving van de Leidse Universiteit (LUCIS).
Het boek gaat over binnenlands en buitenlands beleid. Het laat Nederlanders en Amerikanen uit de werelden van beleid en wetenschap aan het woord, onder meer over problemen van vrede en conflict, democratie, de positie van de vrouw en mensenrechten. Dit boek leert ons ook meer over de relatie tussen wetenschappers en beleidsmakers in een debat dat wordt gedomineerd door de media en politiek.
De onderzoekers van het jonge LUCIS en de befaamde Amerikanen als John Esposito en Dalia Mogahed proberen antwoorden te vinden op de lastige kwesties die oud-bestuurders als Job Cohen en Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, oud-diplomaat Van Dam en WRR-directeur Asbeek Brusse aan de orde stellen.

Lebanese Salafis between the Gulf and Europe
Het is onmogelijk om de hedendaagse islam te begrijpen zonder rekening te houden met het salafisme, een van de meest dynamische en snelst groeiende bewegingen binnen de islam. Serieuze wetenschappelijke publicaties over dit fenomeen, en met name over Libanese salafisten, bestaan nauwelijks. Onderzoek van de Libanese tak biedt een uitgelezen kans om wereldwijd een beter inzicht in de dynamiek van de salafistische beweging te krijgen. Pall heeft etnografische veldwerkonderzoek gedaan in zowel Beirut als het noorden van Libanon. Hij brengt transnationale netwerken in beeld en laat zien hoe informanten nauwe banden onderhouden met o.a. Kuwait en Qatar, de thuisbases van grote salafistische goededoelenorganisaties. Zoltan Pall is als onderzoeker verbonden aan het department Religiewetenschap en Theologie van de Universiteit Utrecht.

We Love Death as You Love Life. Britain`s Suburban Mujahedeen
As Mohammed Siddique Khan led his group of fellow-believers into London on the morning of July 7, 2005 it is unlikely that they were thinking much beyond the immediate impact of their actions. Driven by anger at the West's treatment of Muslims worldwide, ideas fed to them by foreign extremists, and a sense of extreme rejection of the society in which they were born, they sought to reshape the world in an image they thought would be pleasing to God. But while they felt they were on a holy mission -- as enunciated in Khan's chilling video message, 'We Love Death As You Love Life' -- a far more earthly arc of history underlay their actions. This book offers an insight into the motivations behind Khan and his group, as well as the hundreds of young British Muslims who have been drawn by jihadist ideas to fight on battlefields at home and abroad. Starting with the arrival of immigrant communities to the UK and the establishment of diaspora communities with strong ethnic connections to the Middle East and South Asia, to the arrival of jihadist warriors fresh from the anti-Soviet war Afghanistan, this book looks at the history that came before Mohammed Siddique Khan and places his action within its larger context. Based on research conducted while the author was working as an academic in London, this book offers the first comprehensive history of jihadist ideas and violence in the United Kingdom.

Crime and Punishment in Islamic Law. Theory and Practice from the Sixteenth to the Twenty-First Century
Rudolph Peters' book is about crimes and their punishments as laid down in Islamic law. In recent years some of the more fundamentalist regimes, such as those of Iran, Pakistan, Sudan and the northern states of Nigeria have reintroduced Islamic law in place of western criminal codes. Peters gives a detailed account of the classical doctrine and traces the enforcement of criminal law from the Ottoman period to the present day. The accounts of actual cases which range from theft, banditry, murder, fornication and apostasy shed light on the complexities of the law, and the sensitivity and perspicacity of the qadis who implemented it. This is the first single-authored account of both the theory and practice of Islamic criminal law. It will be invaluable for students, and scholars in the field, as well as for professionals looking for comprehensive coverage of the topic.

Van harem tot fitna, beeldvorming van de islam in Nederland 1848-2010
Dit boek is een diepgravend onderzoek naar de Nederlandse beeldvorming over de islam, moslims en Arabieren in de afgelopen anderhalve eeuw.
In de loop van de eeuwen heeft de islam in de Nederlandse beeldvorming allerlei gedaanten aangenomen; er is sprake geweest van duivels heidendom, ketterse religie, achterlijke moslims, een zinnelijke profeet, maar ook van 'sporen van goddelijk licht' en 'kinderen van Abraham', met wie een dialoog tot stand moet komen of die zich zelfs via een eigen zuil moeten emanciperen. Zo is er ook een traditie van een exotische en erotische verbeelding van de islam geweest, geinspireerd door Duizend-en-een-nacht: viriele Arabieren, romantische soeks en verleidelijke haremvrouwen. Vanaf de jaren '90 zien we een nieuw, angstaanjagend beeld van de islam opdoemen. Een politiek anti-islamisme ontvouwt zich, dat waarschuwt voor een islamisering van Nederland en de islam aanduidt als fascisme. Een nieuwe nationale 'identiteit' wordt geconstrueerd. Islamitische Nederlanders vallen buiten deze nieuwe nationale identiteit. Zij worden tot 'vreemden' gestileerd.

In 'Van harem tot fitna', dat de periode van 1848 tot 2010 beslaat, wordt deze hele complexe geschiedenis in kaart gebracht. Nauwgezet en gedetailleerd analyseren de auteurs de beeldvorming over de islam zoals die zich in anderhalve eeuw in diverse kringen (katholieken, protestanten, humanisten, liberalen) heeft ontwikkeld. Welke beelden bestaan er in Nederland over de islam? Wanneer zijn ze ontstaan; welke beelden zijn juist verdwenen? En welke beelden worden gerecycled? En wat zeggen de beelden over de strijd van oude en nieuwe Nederlanders om te komen tot een nieuwe identiteit in een snel veranderende samenleving?

Potts, D. T.
Mesopotamia, Iran and Arabia from the Seleucids to the Sasanians
This volume focuses on the period between the conquest of the Achaemenid empire by Alexander the Great and the advent of Islam, dominated in the central regions of the Near East by the Seleucid, the Parthian and the finally the Sasanian dynasties. Historiographically speaking, these periods have traditionally been dealt with by specialists in Classical archaeology, ancient history and late Antiquity. Much of the sense in which these periods represented a continuation of ancient Near Eastern traditions has thereby been lost. Many specialists in the 'late' periods have little awareness of scholarship on the very same regions and issues as dealt with by generations of scholars for the pre-Hellenistic Near East, while many students of the earlier periods fail to see that the processes and problems specific to the post-Hellenistic, pre-Islamic period in the region form part and parcel of the greater story of the ancient Near East through time. Brought together here are studies on the historical geography of Kerman and Khuzestan in the Seleucid period; the Greek and Parthian presence in Babylonia; popular religion and burial practice in Iran, Mesopotamia, and Arabia and the extent to which these do or do not reflect Zoroastrian orthodoxy; Roman, Parthian, Characene and Sasanian political influence, and its archaeological and iconographic manifestation, in the Arabian peninsula; and, Nestorian Christianity in eastern Arabia. These studies demonstrate how extraordinarily rich a field exists for the further investigation of Mesopotamia, Iran and Arabia in the later pre-Islamic era.

The Development of Islamic Law and Society in the Maghrib. Qadis, Muftis and Family Law
The first eleven essays in this collection treat the application of Islamic law in qadi courts in the Maghrib in the period between 1100 and 1500 CE. Based on preserved legal documents and the expert opinions of Muslim jurists (Muftis), the essays examine family law cases involving legal minority, guardianship, divorce, inheritance, bequests, and endowments. Cumulatively, the cases bear witness to the effectiveness and efficiency of the Islamic judicial system in this period. Contrary to popular perceptions, the cases demonstrate that Muslim jurists placed a high value on reasoned thought and were sensitive to the manner in which law, society, and culture interacted with, and shaped, each other. The final essay shows how the treatment of family endowments by colonial regimes in Algeria and India at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries shaped, or misshaped the modern western scholarly understanding of Islamic law.

Pioneers of Islamic Revival
This book examines diverse 19th and 20th century Muslim thinkers who believed that Islam could provide practical solutions to the problems of the modern world. It gives a balanced account of their contribution to revolutionary Islam and to political developments. Their writings and political activity are considered, explaining the roots of movements as diverse as the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Iranian clergy and the militant Shi'i of Lebanon. The major new introductory chapter puts these still hugely influential thinkers and movements in the context of radically changed circumstances of Islamic countries internally and internationally since 9.11. Exploring the dangers of any Western-Islamic standoff where both Muslim and Christian elements are misusing the religions they ostensibly espouse.

Ramadan, Tariq
In the Footsteps of the Prophet: Lessons from the Life of Muhammad
In the Footsteps of the Prophet is a fresh and perceptive look at Muhammad, capturing a life that was often eventful, gripping, and highly charged. Ramadan provides both an intimate portrait of a man who was shy, kind, but determined, as well as a dramatic chronicle of a leader who launched a great religion and inspired a vast empire. More important, Ramadan presents the main events of the Prophet's life in a way that highlights his spiritual and ethical teachings. The book underscores the significance of the Prophet's example for some of today's most controversial issues, such as the treatment of the poor, the role of women, Islamic criminal punishments, war, racism, and relations with other religions. Selecting those facts and stories from which we can draw a profound and vivid spiritual picture, the author asks how can the Prophet's life remain -- or become again -- an example, a model, and an inspiration? And how can Muslims move from formalism -- a fixation on ritual -- toward a committed spiritual and social presence?
In this thoughtful and engaging biography, Ramadan offers Muslims a new understanding of Muhammad's life and he introduces non-Muslims not just to the story of the Prophet, but to the spiritual and ethical riches of Islam.

Ramadan, Tariq
Islam and the Arab Awakening
One of the most important developments in the modern history of the Middle East, the so-called Arab Spring began in Tunisia in December 2010, bringing down dictators, sparking a civil war in Libya, and igniting a bloody uprising in Syria. Its long-term repercussions in Egypt and elsewhere remain unclear. Now one of the world's leading Islamic thinkers examines and explains it, in this searching, provocative, and necessary book.

In Islam and the Arab Awakening, Tariq Ramadan explores the uprisings, offering rare insight into their origin, significance, and possible futures. As early as 2003, he writes, there had been talk of democratization in the Middle East and North Africa. The U.S. government and private organizations set up networks and provided training for young leaders, especially in the use of the Internet and social media, and the West abandoned its unconditional support of authoritarian governments. But the West did not create the uprisings. Indeed, one lesson Ramadan presents is that these mass movements and their consequences cannot be totally controlled. Something irreversible has taken place: dictators have been overthrown without weapons. But, he writes, democratic processes are only beginning to emerge, and unanswered questions remain. What role will religion play? How should Islamic principles and goals be rethought? Can a sterile, polarizing debate between Islamism and secularism be avoided?

Ramadan, Tariq
Islam, the West, and Challenges of Modernity
Tariq Ramadan attempts to demonstrate, using sources which draw upon Islamic thought and civilization, that Muslims can respond to contemporary challenges of modernity without betraying their identity. The book argues that Muslims, nurished by their own points of reference, can approach the modern epoch by adopting a specific social, political, and economic model that is linked to ethical values, a sense of finalities and spirituality. Rather than a modernism that tends to impose Westernization, it is a modernity that admits to the pluralism of civilizations, religions, and cultures.

Ramadan, Tariq
Radicale hervorming, islamitische ethiek en bevrijding
Tariq Ramadan is een van de belangrijkste vertegenwoordigers van de hervormingsgezinde islam in het Westen. Vernieuwend aan zijn opvattingen is vooral hoe hij andere moslims aanspoort actief deel te nemen aan het maatschappelijk leven van de westerse landen waarin ze wonen. De regels die islamitische rechtsgeleerden uitvaardigen staan deze participatie echter vaak in de weg. Hierdoor lijkt de islam onverenigbaar met democratische, wetenschappelijk en technologisch ontwikkelde samenlevingen. Ramadan pleit voor een radicaal nieuwe manier om islamitische leefregels vast te stellen. Kennis van de context, (natuur)wetenschappelijke, historische en culturele kennis, zou hierbij even belangrijk moeten zijn als 'ijtihad', het kritisch herlezen van religieuze teksten. In dit prikkelende en controversiele boek legt Ramadan zijn antwoord op de huidige crisis in de islam helder uit.

Tariq Ramadan (1962) is filosoof. Hij is als hoogleraar Contemporary Islamic Studies verbonden aan de universiteit van Oxford. Bij Uitgeverij Van Gennep verschenen eerder van zijn hand Een jihad van vertrouwen en In de voetstappen van de profeet.

Ramadan, Tariq
Radical Reform, Islamic Ethics and Liberation
Tariq Ramadan has emerged as one of the foremost voices of reformist Islam in the West. In one of his previous books, 'Western Muslims and the Future of Islam'he urged his fellow Muslims to participate fully in the civil life of the Western societies in which they live, and addressed many of the issues that stand in the way of such participation. In this new book he tackles head-on the thorniest of these issues -- namely, the rulings of Islamic jurists that make Islam seem incompatible with modern, scientifically and technologically advanced, democratic societies. He argues that it is crucial to find theoretical and practical solutions that will enable Western Muslims to remain faithful to Islamic ethics while fully living within their societies and their time. He notes that Muslim scholars often refer to the notion of ijtihad (critical and renewed reading of the foundational texts) as the only way for Muslims to take up these modern challenges. But, Ramadan argues, in practice such readings have effectively reached the limits of their ability to serve the faithful in the West as well as the East. In this book he sets forward a radical new concept of ijtihad, which puts context -- including the knowledge derived from the hard and human sciences, cultures and their geographic and historical contingencies -- on an equal footing with the scriptures as a source of Islamic law. This global and comprehensive approach, he says, seems to be the only way to go beyond the current limits and face up to the crisis in contemporary Islamic thought: Muslims need a contemporary global and applied ethics.

Radikale Reform. Die Botschaft des Islam fur die moderne Gesellschaft
Rettet der Islam den Westen?

Der Islam ist eine religiose Weltmacht. Aber bedeutet er auch eine Bedrohung fur die westlichen Demokratien und ihre Werte? Tariq Ramadan, der wichtigste Vertreter des Euro-Islam, pladiert fur eine radikale Reform: Er bekennt sich zur Scharia als Grundlage aller Gesetze und gleichzeitig zu den Prinzipien von Rechtsstaat, Menschenrechten und Gewaltenteilung. Allen Hasspredigern und Reaktionaren zum Trotz entwickelt Ramadan eine Lesart des Koran, die nicht nur Freiheit und Wurde des Einzelnen betont, sondern auch Glaube und Vernunft versohnt. An zahlreichen Beispielen demonstriert er die Grundsatze einer modernen islamischen Ethik, die den Menschen aus den Fangen eines gewissenlosen Fortschritts befreit.

In "The Arab Awakening" he explores the opportunities and challenges across North Africa and the Middle East, as they look to create new, more open societies. He asks: Can Muslim countries bring together Islam, pluralism and democracy without betraying their identity? Will the Arab world be able to reclaim its memory to reinvent education, women's rights, social justice, economic growth and the fight against corruption? Can this emancipation be envisioned with Islam, experienced not as a straitjacket, but as an ethical and cultural wealth? Arguing that the debate cannot be reduced to a confrontation between two approaches - the modern and secular versus the traditional and Islamic - Ramadan demonstrates that not only are both of these routes in crisis, but that the Arab world has an historic opportunity: to stop blaming the West, to jettison its victim status and to create a truly new dynamic. Tariq Ramadan offers up a challenge to the Middle East: What enduring legacy will you produce, from the historic moment of the Arab Spring?

The Messenger: The Meanings of the Life of Muhammad
In "The Messenger: The Meanings of the Life of Muhammad", leading Muslim scholar Tariq Ramadan considers the ways in which the Prophet's actions, words and teachings can guide us in the modern world. The life of the Prophet Muhammad, to whom the Angel Gabriel revealed the verses of the Quran, has provided inspiration to Muslims for hundreds of years. Interspersed with spiritual and philosophical meditations, this profound and stimulating biography shows how Muhammad's message can be used to address some of today's most controversial issues - from the treatment of the poor and the role of women to the interpretation of jihad and relations with other religions. It offers Muslims a new understanding of Muhammad's life and introduces non-Muslims to the story of the Prophet and to the riches of Islam.

Tariq Ramadan is Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at the Faculty of Oriental Studies and St Antony's College (University of Oxford). He is the Director of the Centre for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (Doha)

The Quest for Meaning: Developing a Philosophy of Pluralism
In "The Quest for Meaning: Developing a Philosophy of Pluralism", Tariq Ramadan embarks on a journey to uncover the profound truths that bind us together. In a world so full of different beliefs and viewpoints, how can we find peace in our shared humanity? Acclaimed thinker and philosopher Tariq Ramadan explores universal ideas such as love, respect, truth and tolerance, and examines questions such as how can men and women relate to each other? What is the true nature of equality? What does 'civilization' really mean? In doing so, he opens our minds to a new view of humanity. Whether we are Christian or Buddhist, Jewish or Muslim, secularist or believer, he reveals that all traditions of thought spring from the same place, and guides us to see past what divides us and discover the beauty of what we have in common.

Ramadan, Tariq
Western Muslims and the Future of Islam
In a Western world suddenly acutely interested in Islam, one question has been repeatedly heard above the din: where are the Muslim reformers? With this ambitious volume, Tariq Ramadan firmly establishes himself as one of Europe's leading thinkers and one of Islam's most innovative and important voices. As the number of Muslims living in the West grows, the question of what it means to be a Western Muslim becomes increasingly important to the futures of both Islam and the West. While the media are focused on radical Islam, Ramadan claims, a silent revolution is sweeping Islamic communities in the West, as Muslims actively seek ways to live in harmony with their faith within a Western context. French, English, German, and American Muslims--women as well as men--are reshaping their religion into one that is faithful to the principles of Islam, dressed in European and American cultures, and definitively rooted in Western societies. Ramadan's goal is to create an independent Western Islam, anchored not in the traditions of Islamic countries but in the cultural reality of the West. He begins by offering a fresh reading of Islamic sources, interpreting them for a Western context and demonstrating how a new understanding of universal Islamic principles can open the door to integration into Western societies. He then shows how these principles can be put to practical use. Ramadan contends that Muslims can-indeed must-be faithful to their principles while participating fully in the civic life of Western secular societies. Grounded in scholarship and bold in its aims, Western Muslims and the Future of Islam offers a striking vision of a new Muslim Identity, one which rejects once and for all the idea that Islam must be defined in opposition to the West.

Ramadan, Tariq
What I Believe
Tariq Ramadan is very much a public figure, named one of Time magazine's most important innovators of the twenty-first century. He is among the leading Islamic thinkers in the West, with a large following around the world. But he has also been a lightning rod for controversy. Indeed, in 2004, Ramadan was prevented from entering the U.S. by the Bush administration and despite two appeals, supported by organizations like the American Academy of Religion and the ACLU, he is still barred from the country at this time. In What I Believe, Ramadan attempts to set the record straight, laying out the basic ideas he stands for in clear and accessible prose. He describes the book as a work of clarification, directed at ordinary citizens, politicians, journalist and others who are curious (or skeptical) about his positions. Aware that that he is dealing with emotional issues, Ramadan tries to get past the barriers of prejudice and misunderstanding to speak directly, from the heart, to his Muslim and non-Muslim readers alike. In particular, he calls on Western Muslims to escape the mental, social, cultural, and religious ghettos they have created for themselves and become full partners in the democratic societies in which they live. At the same time, he calls for the rest of us to recognize our Muslim neighbors as citizens with rights and responsibilities the same as ours. His vision is of a future in which a shared and confident pluralism becomes a reality at last.

Reeth, J.M.F. van
Kalam. Arabisch denken over God en de wereld
Reeds vroeg begonnen moslims zich vragen te stellen over wezenlijke bouwstenen van hun godsdienst. Wie is God en hoe verhoudt Hij zich tot de wereld waarin wij leven? Is er in de islam plaats voor menselijke vrijheid? Of is alles in de natuur voorbeschikt? Is de mens verantwoordelijk voor zijn daden? Hoe moeten we de Koran plaatsen: is het een goddelijk boek of menselijk maakwerk?

Op al deze vragen trachtten theologen te antwoorden. Zij hebben dat gedaan met argumenten die zij deels ontleenden aan Griekse filosofen en aan Joodse en christelijke theologen. Zo ontstond er spoedig een boeiend intellectueel debat. Meer dan eens werd ook een onverwacht kritisch, soms zelfs ongelovig standpunt ingenomen. Op al deze aspecten gaat dit boek in, telkens verwijzend naar filosofische bronnen en godsdienstige achtergronden.

The Emergence of Islam. Classical Traditions in Contemporary Perspective
Gabriel Said Reynolds tells the story of Islam in this brief illustrated survey, beginning with Muhammad's early life and rise to power, then tracing the origins and development of the Qur’an juxtaposed with biblical literature, and concluding with an overview of modern and fundamentalist narratives of the origin of Islam. Reynolds offers a fascinating look at the structure and meaning of the Qur'an, revealing the ways in which biblical language is used to advance the Qur'an's religious meaning. Reynolds' analysis identifies the motives that shaped each narrative—Islamic, Jewish, and Christian. The book’s conclusion yields a rich understanding of diverse interpretations of Islam’s emergence, suggesting that its emergence is itself ever-developing.

This new edition has been comprehensively updated and for the first time features a companion website with extensive links to additional reading and resources to help deepen students' understanding of the subject. 'Muslims' offers a survey of Islamic history and thought from the formative period of the religion to modern times.

Prophecy and Power offers a rigorous comparative study of both the Prophet Muhammad and the Qur'an. The book ranges across various issues: the comparative study of prophecy; Qur'anic comparison as a modality of change; the Prophet as exemplar and foil; and an experiment in comparison between Muhammad and Alinesitouie.

Varieties of Muslim Experience. Encounters with Arab Political and Cultural Life
In "Varieties of Muslim Experience", anthropologist Lawrence Rosen explores aspects of Arab Muslim life that are, at first glance, perplexing to Westerners. He ranges over such diverse topics as why Arabs eschew portraiture, why a Muslim scientist might be attracted to fundamentalism, and why the Prophet must be protected from blasphemous cartoons. What connects these seemingly disparate features of Arab social, political, and cultural life? Rosen argues that the common thread is the importance Arabs place on the negotiation of interpersonal relationships - a link that helps to explain actions as seemingly unfathomable as suicide bombing and as elusive as Quranic interpretation. Written with eloquence and a deep knowledge of the entire spectrum of Muslim experience, Rosen's book will interest not only anthropologists and Islamicists but anyone invested in better understanding the Arab world.

Rothfield, L.
The Rape of Mesopotamia. Behind the Looting of the Iraq Musuem
On April 10, 2003, as the world watched a statue of Saddam Hussein come crashing down in the heart of Baghdad, a mob of looters attacked the Iraq National Museum. Despite the presence of an American tank unit, the pillaging went unchecked, and more than 15,000 artifacts - some of the oldest evidence of human culture - disappeared into the shadowy worldwide market in illicit antiquities. In the five years since that day, the losses have only mounted, with gangs digging up roughly half a million artifacts that had previously been unexcavated; the loss to our shared human heritage is incalculable. With "The Rape of Mesopotamia", Lawrence Rothfield answers the complicated question of how this wholesale thievery was allowed to occur. Drawing on extensive interviews with soldiers, bureaucrats, war planners, archaeologists, and collectors, Rothfield reconstructs the planning failures - originating at the highest levels of the U.S. government - that led to the invading forces' utter indifference to the protection of Iraq's cultural heritage from looters. Widespread incompetence and miscommunication on the part of the Pentagon, unchecked by the disappointingly weak efforts of worldwide preservation advocates, enabled a tragedy that continues even today, despite widespread public outrage. Bringing his story up to the present, Rothfield argues forcefully that the international community has yet to learn the lessons of Iraq - and that what happened there is liable to be repeated in future conflicts. A powerful, infuriating chronicle of the disastrous conjunction of military adventure and cultural destruction, "The Rape of Mesopotamia" is essential reading for all concerned with the future of our past.

Roy, O.
Secularism Confronts Islam
The denunciation of fundamentalism in France, embodied in the law against the veil and the deportation of imams, has shifted into a systematic attack on all Muslims and Islam. This hostility is rooted in the belief that Islam cannot be integrated into French - and, consequently, secular and liberal-society. However, as Olivier Roy makes clear in this book, Muslim intellectuals have made it possible for Muslims to live concretely in a secularized world while maintaining the identity of a "true believer." They have formulated a language that recognizes two spaces: that of religion and that of secular society. Western society is unable to recognize this process, Roy argues, because of a cultural bias that assumes religious practice is embedded within a specific, traditional culture that must be either erased entirely or forced to coexist in a neutral, multicultural space. Instead, Roy shows that new forms of religiosity, such as Islamic fundamentalism and Christian evangelicalism, have come to thrive in post-traditional, secular contexts precisely because they remain detached from any cultural background. In recognizing this, Roy recasts the debate concerning Islam and democracy. Analyzing the French case in particular, in which the tension between Islam and the conception of Western secularism is exacerbated, Roy makes important distinctions between Arab and non-Arab Muslims, hegemony and tolerance, and the role of the umma and the sharia in Muslim religious life. He pits Muslim religious revivalism against similar movements in the West, such as evangelical Protestantism and Jehovah's Witnesses, and refutes the myth of a single "Muslim community" by detailing different groups and their inability to overcome their differences.

Rustomji, Nerina
The Garden and the Fire: Heaven and Hell in Islamic Culture
Islamic conceptions of heaven and hell began in the seventh century as an early doctrinal innovation, but by the twelfth century, these notions had evolved into a highly formalized ideal of perfection. In tracking this transformation, Nerina Rustomji reveals the distinct material culture and aesthetic vocabulary Muslims developed to understand heaven and hell and identifies the communities and strategies of defense that took shape around the promise of a future world.

Ideas of the afterworld profoundly influenced daily behaviors in Islamic society and gave rise to a code of ethics that encouraged abstinence from sumptuous objects, such as silver vessels and silk, so they could be appreciated later in heaven. Rustomji conducts a meticulous study of texts and images and carefully connects the landscape and social dynamics of the afterworld with earthly models and expectations. Male servants and female companions become otherworldly objects in the afterlife, and stories of rewards and punishment helped preachers promote religious reform. By employing material culture as a method of historical inquiry, Rustomji points to the reflections, discussions, and constructions that actively influenced Muslims' picture of the afterworld, culminating in a distinct religious aesthetic.

Ruthven, M.
Islam. A Very Short Introduction
Islam features widely in the news, often in its most militant versions, but few people in the non-Muslim world really understand the nature of Islam. Malise Ruthven's Very Short Introduction contains essential insights into issues such as why Islam has such major divisions between movements such as the Shi'ites, the Sunnis, and the Wahhabis, and the central importance of the Shar'ia (Islamic law) in Islamic life. It also offers fresh perspectives on contemporary questions: Why is the greatest 'Jihad' (holy war) now against the enemies of Islam, rather than the struggle against evil? Can women find fulfilment in Islamic societies? How must Islam adapt as it confronts the modern world? In this new edition, Ruthven brings the text up-to-date by reflecting upon some of the most significant changes in the Muslim world in recent years; from the emergence of al-Qaeda and the attacks on New York and Washington on 9/11 and the ensuing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, to the uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa. Ruthven includes new material surrounding the concept of a globalized Islam, bringing into question the effects of economic globalization, the effect of international events in Middle Eastern countries, the issues surrounding Islam and democracy, and the reception and perception of Islam in the West.

Islam. Een kort overzicht
De islam staat in het centrum van de belangstelling, maar niet altijd even positief. Toch zijn maar heel weinig mensen buiten de moslim-wereld inhoudelijk op de hoogte van de islam als ideologie en religie.

In dit boek komen belangrijke vragen aan de orde: waarom richt de jihad (heilige oorlog) zich heden ten dag tegen de vijanden van de islam en niet tegen het kwaad; waarom kent de islam zo' n grote verscheidenheid (shiiten, soennieten, wahabbisten), waarom is de sharia zo 'n belangrijk aspect van het islamitische leven geworden, wat is de positie van de vrouw en op welke problemen stuit de islam in confrontatie met de westerse moderniteit?

Ruthven biedt de nodige informatie om je te kunnen orienteren in het actuele debat over het verleden, het heden en de toekomst van de islam als moderne wereldreligie.

Ruthven, Malise
Encounters with Islam: On Religion, Politics and Modernity
For many years Malise Ruthven has been at the forefront of discerning commentary on the Islamic world and its relations with the predominantly secularised and Christian societies of the West. Well known for his bold interventions on such issues as the Rushdie affair and publication of "The Satanic Verses"; the many unresolved questions relating to the Lockerbie bombing; and the globe-changing terrorist attack of 9/11, Ruthven's perceptive writings, particularly those that have appeared in the "New York Review of Books", reliably re-frame difficult issues and problems so that his readers are prompted to look at the challenges afresh. Ruthven is here at his most compelling: he offers astute and topical insights across the whole spectrum of Middle East and Islamic studies. Whether questioning the involvement of Libyan agents in the downing of Pan Am Flight 103; exploring the contested place of women in Islam; or discussing the disputed term 'Islamofascism' (his own), the author's probing, searchlight intelligence aims always to get at the truth of things, regardless of attendant controversy. Representing the 'best of Ruthven', these lucid essays will be widely appreciated by students, specialists and general readers. They transform our understandings of contemporary society.

Sachedina, A.A.
Islamic Messianism: The Idea of Mahdi in Twelver Shi ism
The first comprehensive study of the idea of the Mahdi, or divinely guided messianic leader.

The topic of this book is vital to the understanding of contemporary developments in Iran and other areas of the Islamic world in which Shi‘ism is a significant social and religious force. Islamic tradition in general speaks about the appearance of the Mahdi, or divinely guided messianic leader, from among the descendants of the prophet. In Shi‘ism, belief in the Mahdi is the foundation on which the entire spiritual and temporal edifice rests.

Sachedina’s purpose is to examine this key belief in the Mahdi and the doctrinal evolution of the idea of the Mahdi in early Imamite sources. Sachedina compares the Judeo-Christian conception of Messiah and the Shi‘ite conception of Mahdi and discusses the developing relationship between the Shi‘ite Muslims and political regimes. His primary sources on the development of doctrinal ideas about the Mahdi are the works of early Imamite scholars who developed their ideas when they were in a minority position in the Islamic world.

As the first comprehensive study of the idea of the Mahdi, Islamic Messianism provides a valuable guide to students in religious studies and Islamics as well as to students of Iranian history and politics.

Sayyid, S.
Recalling the Caliphate. Decolonisation and World Order
As late as the last quarter of the twentieth century, there were expectations that Islam's political and cultural influence would dissipate as the advance of westernization brought modernization and secularization in its wake. Not only has Islam failed to follow the trajectory pursued by variants of Christianity, namely confinement to the private sphere and depoliticisation, but it has also forcefully re-asserted itself as mobilizations in its name challenge the global order in a series of geopolitical, cultural and philosophical struggles.

The continuing (if not growing) relevance of Islam suggests that global history cannot simply be presented as a scaled up version of that of the West. Quests for Muslim autonomy present themselves in several forms - local and global, extremist and moderate, conservative and revisionist - in the light of which the recycling of conventional narratives about Islam becomes increasingly problematic. Not only are these accounts inadequate for understanding Muslim experiences, but by relying on them many Western governments pursue policies that are counter-productive and ultimately hazardous for Muslims and non-Muslims alike. "Recalling the Caliphate" engages critically with the interaction between Islam and the political in context of a post colonial world that continues to resist profound decolonization. In the first part of this book, Sayyid focuses on how demands for Muslim autonomy are debated in terms such as democracy, cultural relativism, secularism, and liberalism. Each chapter analyzes the displacements and evasions by which the decolonization of the Muslim world continues to be deflected and deferred, while the latter part of the book builds on this critique, exploring, and attempts to accelerate the decolonization of the Muslim Ummah.

Scharbrodt, Oliver
Islam and the Bahai Faith. A Comparative Study of Muhammad Abduh and Abdul-Baha Abbas
Muhammad 'Abduh (1849-1905) was one of the key thinkers and reformers of modern Islam who has influenced both liberal and fundamentalist Muslims today. 'Abdul-Baha (1844-1921) was the son of Baha'ullah (1817-1892), the founder of the Baha'i Faith; a new religion which began as a messianic movement in Shii Islam, before it departed from Islam.

Oliver Scharbrodt offers an innovative and radically new perspective on the lives of these two major religious reformers in 19th century Middle East by placing both figures into unfamiliar terrain. While one would classify 'Abdul-Baha, leader of a messianic movement which claims to depart from Islam, as an exponent of heresy in Islam, 'Abduh is perceived as an orthodox Sunni reformer. This book, however, argues against the assumption that both represent two extremely opposite expressions of Islamic religiosity. It shows that both were influenced by similar intellectual and religious traditions of Islam and that both participated in the same discussions on the reform of Islam in the 19th century.

Islam and the Baha'i Faith provides new insights into the Islamic background of the Baha'i Faith and into 'Abduh's own association with so-called heretical movements in Islam.

Seesemann, R.
The Divine Flood. Ibrahim Niasse and the Roots of a Twentieth-Century Sufi Revival
Until recently, academic studies of Sufism have largely ignored the multiple ways in which Islamic mystical ideas and practices have developed in the modern period. For many specialists, Sufism was "on the way out" and not compatible with modernity. The present study of a twentieth-century Sufi revival in West Africa offers overdue corrections of this misconception. Seesemann's work evolves around the emergence and spread of the "Community of the Divine Flood," established in 1929 by Ibrahim Niasse, a leader of the Tijaniyya Sufi order from Senegal. Based on a wide variety of written sources and encounters with leaders and ordinary members of the movement, the book analyzes the teachings and practices of this community, most notably those concerned with mystical knowledge of God. It presents a vivid and intimate portrait of the community's formation in Senegal and its subsequent transformation into a flourishing transnational movement in West Africa and beyond. Drawing on letters, poetry, hagiography, and testimonies of opponents of the movement, the book traces Niasse's spectacular ascension as the widely acclaimed "Supreme Saint of His Era" and shows how the various stages of his career intersect with the development of his mystical teachings. Seesemann makes a compelling case for studying Sufis and their literary production in their social and historical contexts, throwing light on a little-known chapter of the intellectual and social history of Islam.

Shoemaker, S.J.
The Death of a Prophet. The End of Muhammad's Life and the Beginning of Islam
The oldest Islamic biography of Muhammad, written in the mid-eighth century, relates that the prophet died at Medina in 632, while earlier and more numerous Jewish, Christian, Samaritan, and even Islamic sources indicate that Muhammad survived to lead the conquest of Palestine, beginning in 634-35. Although this discrepancy has been known for several decades, Stephen J. Shoemaker here writes the first systematic study of the various traditions. Using methods and perspectives borrowed from biblical studies, Shoemaker concludes that these reports of Muhammad's leadership during the Palestinian invasion likely preserve an early Islamic tradition that was later revised to meet the needs of a changing Islamic self-identity. Muhammad and his followers appear to have expected the world to end in the immediate future, perhaps even in their own lifetimes, Shoemaker contends. When the eschatological Hour failed to arrive on schedule and continued to be deferred to an ever more distant point, the meaning of Muhammad's message and the faith that he established needed to be fundamentally rethought by his early followers. The larger purpose of The Death of a Prophet exceeds the mere possibility of adjusting the date of Muhammad's death by a few years; far more important to Shoemaker are questions about the manner in which Islamic origins should be studied. The difference in the early sources affords an important opening through which to explore the nature of primitive Islam more broadly. Arguing for greater methodological unity between the study of Christian and Islamic origins, Shoemaker emphasizes the potential value of non-Islamic sources for reconstructing the history of formative Islam.

Siddiqui, Mona
The Good Muslim: Reflections on Classical Islamic Law and Theology
In this thought-provoking book, Mona Siddiqui reflects upon key themes in Islamic law and theology. These themes, which range through discussions about friendship, divorce, drunkenness, love, slavery and ritual slaughter, offer fascinating insights into Islamic ethics and the way in which arguments developed in medieval juristic discourse. Pre-modern religious works contained a richness of thought, hesitation and speculation on a wide range of topics, which were socially relevant but also presented intellectual challenges to the scholars for whom God's revelation could be understood in diverse ways. These subjects remain relevant today, for practising Muslims and scholars of Islamic law and religious studies. Mona Siddiqui is an astute and articulate interpreter who relays complex ideas about the Islamic tradition with great clarity. Her book charts her own journey through the classical texts and reflects upon how the principles expounded there have guided her own thinking, teaching and research.

Small, K.E.
Textual Criticism and Qur'an Manuscripts
This unique work takes a method of textual analysis commonly used in studies of ancient Western and Eastern manuscripts and applies it to twenty-one early Qur'an manuscripts. Keith Small analyzes a defined portion of text from the Qur'an with two aims in view: to recover the earliest form of text for this portion, and to trace the historical development of this portion to the current form of the text of the Qur'an. Small concludes that though a significantly early edited form of the consonantal text of the Qur'an can be recovered, its original forms of text cannot be obtained. He also documents the further editing that was required to record the Arabic text of the Qur'an in a complete phonetic script, as well as providing an explanation for much of the development of various recitation systems of the Qur'an. This controversial, thought-provoking book provides a rigorous examination into the history of the Qur'an and will be of great interest to Quranic Studies scholars.

Strindberg, A.,M. Warn
Islamism
This book offers a rigorous and balanced analysis of how and why Islamism has risen to the fore as the dominant voice of Islamic discourse and what accounts for the often vastly different political agendas, tactical choices and strategic objectives of individual Islamist groups. It shows how a common Islamist language of resistance and defiance acquires distinctive meanings and implications in different local contexts, as well as how these local struggles connect to each other. Drawing on important insights from social psychology, critical studies, and post-colonial studies, the book pinpoints the underlying dynamic that drives Islamist struggles in the world today, and shows how diverse experiences of repression and humiliation - real or perceived - are translated into an equally diverse collection of struggles aimed at promoting an alternative social order of independence and dignity framed by Islam

Islamic Thought in the Twentieth Century
This book provides in-depth discussions of Islamic thought across the twentieth century, encompassing the breadth of self-expression in Muslim communities world-wide. It explores key themes in modern Islamic thinking, including the social origins and ideological underpinnings of the late 19th- early 20th-century Islamic reformist project, nationalism in the Muslim world, Islamist attitudes towards democracy, Muslim perceptions and constructions of the West, and aspects of Muslim thinking on Christians and Jews. It examines these themes in terms of the historical, political and social conditions of the Muslim world, and its ongoing interactions with the West.

Islam in Global Politics. Conflict and Cross-Civilizational Bridging
Reaching beyond traditionally politicised scholarship to provide a unique perspective on the place of religion and culture in global and local politics, this book examines the impact of Islam on 'civilizational' relations between different groups and polities. Bassam Tibi takes a highly original approach to the topic of religion in world politics, exploring the place of Islam in society and its frequent distortion in world politics to the more radical Islamism. Looking at how this becomes an immediate source of tension and conflict between the secular and the religious, Tibi rejects the 'clash of civilizations' theory and argues for the revival of Islamic humanism to help bridge the gap. Chapters expand on: inter-civilizational conflict in global politics dialogue between religious and secular, East and West western concepts of Islamism euro-Islam and the Islamic diaspora in Europe Islamic humanism as a tool for bridging civilizations. Shedding new light on the highly topical subject of Islam in politics and society, this book is an essential read for scholars and students of international politics, Islamic studies and conflict resolution.

Islamofobie en discriminatie
Het Nederlandse antidiscriminatiebeleid staat onder druk nu islamofobie als ideologie is doorgedrongen tot in het centrum van de politieke macht. Met een voorwoord door Ernst Hirsch Ballin. Sinds 11 september 2001 - en vooral sinds de moord op Theo van Gogh - staan moslims en islam vaak negatief in het centrum van de publieke belangstelling. Uitingen van islamofobie vindt men op internet, in uitspraken van de PVV en in geweldacties tegen moskeeen. Het Nederlandse antidiscriminatiebeleid staat onder druk nu deze ideologie is doorgedrongen tot in het centrum van de politieke macht. Hoe ontstaan negatieve gevoelens jegens moslims? Waar vinden geweldacties plaats? Bevindt Nederland zich in de frontlinie van de 'clash of civilizations', zoals internationaal wel wordt beweerd? De auteur stelt dat verschuivingen in het politieke klimaat pas volledig kunnen worden begrepen als racisme, ideologie en taal in de analyse betrokken worden. Haar onderzoek voor Islamofobie en discriminatie bestond uit literatuurstudie, documentenanalyse en het verzamelen van gegevens over verschillende uitingsvormen. - Ineke van der Valk is onderzoeker met een brede achtergrond in de sociale wetenschappen en tekstwetenschap, gespecialiseerd in etnische diversiteit, racisme en extremisme.

Hoe de islam zich in Nederland ontwikkelt, lijkt in nevelen gehuld. Is er sprake van een verdergaande radicalisering of winnen juist liberale vormen van islam terrein? De vraag is ook of en in welke mate de ontwikkelingen beinvloed of zelfs gestuurd worden door de islam in de landen waar de eerste generatie moslims in Nederland vandaan komt. Ook is het geen uitgemaakte zaak hoe de overheid zich moet opstellen ten opzichte van de islam en moslims en hun organisaties. En hoe de media daarover dienen te berichten.

Er hangt dus mist in de polder. Deze bundel wil de complexe ontwikkelingen omtrent de islam in Nederland verhelderen en meer licht werpen op de omgang van politiek en media met de islam. Dit gebeurt vanuit een internationaal, historisch, sociaalwetenschappelijk en juridisch/moreel perspectief.

Met bijdragen van Sipco Vellenga, Roel Meijer, Marjo Buitelaar, Umut Azak, Dick Douwes, Fouad Laroui, Paul Cliteur, Paul Scheffer, Bas van Stokkom en Wasif Shadid.

De Jasmijnrevolutie. Startschot van de Arabische Lente
tb. Op 17 december 2010 stak een Tunesische jongeman zichzelf uit protest tegen het regime in brand. Die daad had grote gevolgen. Hij groeide uit tot een nationale held en het Tunesische volk vond de moed in opstand te komen. President Ben Ali weigerde af te treden, waardoor het protest alleen maar groeide. De sociale media en de slechte economische omstandigheden wakkerden het vuur aan. De vlam sloeg over naar andere Arabische landen en de rest is geschiedenis. Leen Vervaeke is tijdens het begin van de Arabische revolutie in Tunesië en gaat de straat op. Ze staat tussen de rebellen en spreekt met de inwoners die het regime omverwerpen. Daarna reist Vervaeke nog enkele malen naar Tunesië om ook het verdere verloop van dichtbij mee te maken, o.a. om de verkiezingen mee te maken in oktober 2011. Op intelligente, meeslepende en persoonlijke wijze doet deze talentvolle journaliste verslag van een belangrijke gebeurtenis in de wereldgeschiedenis, waarvan nog niemand de afloop kent. Leen Vervaeke schreef in de Volkskrant meerdere artikelen over de opstand in Tunesië. Dit vormde de basis van De Jasmijnrevolutie.jnt februari 2012

Between God and the Sultan. A History of Islamic Law
Hardback for paperbackprice.
This introduction to Islamic jurisprudence (usul al-fiqh) summarizes its major concepts and presents the contemporary debates among historians concerning the historicity of the Islamic sources of dogma, and of the dating of early Islamic law. It describes the classical practice of the law, in the formulation and elaboration of the legal rules (fatwas, furu' works, mukhtasars and so forth) and in the paradigms of legal practice in the courts. It summarizes various types of Islamic substantive legal rules (in mu'amalat), hudud and ta'zir, bodily harm and diya, marriage and family law and some apects of economic law, in particular taxation, contracts and the marketplace.

Family Law in Islam. Divorce, Marriage and Women in the Muslim World
In both the West and throughout the Muslim world, Islamic family law is a highly - and hotly - debated topic. In the Muslim World, the discussions at the heart of these debates are often primarily concerned with the extent to which classical Islamic family law should be implemented in the national legal system, and the impact this has on society.

Family Law in Islam highlights these discussions by looking at public debates and legal practice. Using a range of contemporary examples, from polygamy to informal marriage (zawaj 'urfi), and from divorce with mutual agreement (khul') to judicial divorce (tatliq), this wide-ranging and penetrating volume explores the impact of Islamic law on individuals, families and society alike from Morocco to Egypt and from Syria to Iran. It thus contains material of vital importance for researchers of Islamic Law, Politics and Society in the Middle East and North Africa.

A Quietists Jihadi. The Ideology and Influence of Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi
Since 9/11, the Jordanian Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi (b. West Bank, 1959) has emerged as one of the most important radical Muslim thinkers alive today. While al-Maqdisi may not be a household name in the West, his influence amongst like-minded Muslims stretches across the world from Jordan - where he lives today - to Southeast Asia. His writings and teachings on Salafi Islam have inspired terrorists from Europe to the Middle East, including Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi, the former leader of al-Qa'ida in Iraq, and Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama Bin Laden's successor as the head of al-Qa'ida Central. This groundbreaking book, which is the first comprehensive assessment of al-Maqdisi, his life, ideology, and influence, is based on his extensive writings and those of other jihadis, as well as on interviews that the author conducted with (former) jihadis, including al-Maqdisi himself. It is a serious and intense work of scholarship that uses this considerable archive to explain and interpret al-Maqdisi's particular brand of Salafism. More broadly, the book offers an alternative, insider perspective on the rise of radical Islam, with a particular focus on Salafi opposition movements in Saudi Arabia and Jordan.

European Muslims, Civility and Public Life: Perspectives on and from the Gulen Movement
This is an assessment of the influence and impact of the Islamic scholar and activist Fethullah Gulen, and those who are inspired by him, on contemporary Islam. This edited collection deals with the challenges and opportunities faced by Muslims and the wider society in Europe following the Madrid train bombings of 2003 and the London Transport attacks of 2007. The contributors explore the challenges to the concept and practice of civility in public life within a European context, and demonstrates the contributions that can be made in this regard by the thought and practice of the global movement associated with the Turkish Muslim scholar Fethullah Gulen. The importance and distinctiveness of teaching of Gulen and the practice of the movement is that it is rooted in a confident Turkish Islamic heritage while being fully engaged with modernity. It offers the possibility of a contextualised renewal of Islam for Muslims in Europe while being fully rooted in the teachings of the Qu'ran and the Sunnah of the Prophet. This volume is an important contribution to the study of the movement, which advocates the freedom of religion while making an Islamic contribution to the wider society based on a commitment to service of others.

Wickham, Carrie Rosefsky
The Muslim Brotherhood: Evolution of an Islamist Movement
The Muslim Brotherhood has achieved a level of influence nearly unimaginable before the Arab Spring. The Brotherhood was the resounding victor in Egypt's 2011-2012 parliamentary elections, and six months later, a leader of the group was elected president. Yet the implications of the Brotherhood's rising power for the future of democratic governance, peace, and stability in the region is open to dispute. Drawing on more than one hundred in-depth interviews as well as Arabic language sources not previously accessed by Western researchers, Carrie Rosefsky Wickham traces the evolution of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt from its founding in 1928 to the fall of Mubarak and the watershed elections of 2011-2012. Further, she compares the Brotherhood's trajectory with those of mainstream Islamist groups in Jordan, Kuwait, and Morocco, revealing a wider pattern of change. Wickham highlights the internal divisions of such groups and explores the shifting balance of power among them. She shows that they are not proceeding along a linear path toward greater moderation. Rather, their course has been marked by profound tensions and contradictions, yielding hybrid agendas in which newly embraced themes of freedom and democracy coexist uneasily with illiberal concepts of Shari'a carried over from the past. Highlighting elements of movement continuity and change, and demonstrating that shifts in Islamist worldviews, goals, and strategies are not the result of a single strand of cause and effect, Wickham provides a systematic, fine-grained account of Islamist group evolution in Egypt and the wider Arab world.

Carrie Rosefsky Wickham is associate professor of political science at Emory University. She is the author of Mobilizing Islam: Religion, Activism, and Political Change in Egypt.

Modern Islamic Thought in a Radical Age: Religious Authority and Internal Criticism
Among traditionally educated scholars in the Islamic world there is much disagreement on the crises that afflict modern Muslim societies and how best to deal with them, and the debates have grown more urgent since 9/11. Through an analysis of the work of Muhammad Rashid Rida and Yusuf al-Qaradawi in the Arab Middle East and a number of scholars belonging to the Deobandi orientation in colonial and contemporary South Asia, this book examines some of the most important issues facing the Muslim world since the late nineteenth century. These include the challenges to the binding claims of a long-established scholarly consensus, evolving conceptions of the common good, and discourses on religious education, the legal rights of women, social and economic justice and violence and terrorism. This wide-ranging study by a leading scholar provides the depth and the comparative perspective necessary for an understanding of the ferment that characterizes contemporary Islam.

Wij zijn Arabieren. Portret van ondoordringbaar Syrie
Toen Maarten Zeegers aan zijn studie islamitisch recht in Damascus begon, kon hij niet vermoeden dat hij meer dan een jaar later het land zou worden uitgezet. In Wij zijn Arabieren verhaalt hij over zijn leven in Syrie. Scherpzinnig en geestig beschrijft hij de omgang met medestudenten, radicale geestelijken en tegenstanders van het regime. Contact met de andere sexe is ingewikkeld: zijn ervaringen met vrouwen lopen stuk op culturele verschillen of worden verstoord door de geheime dienst. Wanneer de opstand uitbreekt, bevindt Zeegers zich midden tussen de demonstranten. Het toeval wil dat hij juist op die dag Sarah, zijn grote liefde, ontmoet.

Maarten Zeegers (1982) studeerde aan de universiteit van Damascus toen de opstand in Syrie uitbrak. Hij vertelde er regelmatig over in het Radio 1 Journaal en hij publiceerde anoniem in NRC Handelsblad, nrc.next en De Standaard. Als een van de weinigen kon hij van binnenuit verslag doen tot hij werd uitgezet wegens 'illegale journalistieke praktijken'. In maart 2012 trad hij in het huwelijk met zijn Syrische verloofde.

'Maarten Zeegers is the real deal. Hij spreekt Arabisch en woonde jaren in Damascus. Dit wil je lezen'- Joris Luyendijk

Het islam debat
De opgeklopte hype rond Geert Wilders film Fitna liep af met een sisser. Een dag nadat de film uitkwam, draaide de wereld gewoon verder. Nochtans lijkt de islam niet meer weg te denken uit het publieke debat. Of het nu is als verklaring voor sociale problemen en dramas dicht bij huis, of voor conflicten aan de andere kant van de Middellandse Zee. We lijken wel bezeten van het idee dat de islam het grootste probleem vormt voor onze contreien. En steeds opnieuw wordt islamologen, arabisten en andere kenners gevraagd: wat zegt de islam over dit of dat onderwerp? De islam zegt, helaas, niks. En dus begint de kakofonie.

Dit boek wil het zogenaamde islamdebat verduidelijken en nuanceren. Want onze obsessie voor de islam weerspiegelt onze groeiende onkunde om het samenleven in een globaliserende wereld op een ordentelijke manier te organiseren. Het islamdebat analyseert de relatie tussen islam en Verlichting en het gevaar van de islamofobie. Het biedt een solide basis om na te denken over een vernieuwde politieke gemeenschap die insluit in plaats van uitsluit. Anders gezegd: dit is een oproep om via dialoog een plaats te vinden voor de islam in onze democratische maatschappij.

Het Midden-Oosten. The times they are a-changin'
'Egyptische vrouwen op straat tegen Morsi', 'Avondklok na onrust in Tunesie', 'Demonstranten gedood bij Amerikaanse ambassade Jemen'. Soms, als wij 's ochtends door de krant bladeren, vragen wij ons af: hoe zou het nog met de Arabische Lente zijn? Twee jaar na de revoltes in het Midden-Oosten en Noord-Afrika maken Sami Zemni en zijn team van specialisten een balans op. Wat waren de oorzaken en de oorsprong van die opstanden? Welke rol speelden zittende aristocraten, islamisten en westerlingen? Waren de nieuwe sociale media werkelijk de blaasbalg die de vonk van de verontwaardiging aanwakkerden? En heeft dat protest eigenlijk iets structureels veranderd?

Het Midden-Oosten. The times they are a-changin' is het eerste grondige Nederlandstalig overzicht dat voorbij oppervlakkigheden en algemeenheden wandelt, en ook nog eens de hele regio bestrijkt, van Egypte en Tunesie tot Marokko, Libie, Syrie, Libanon, Palestina, Jemen, Jordanie, Irak, Bahrein en Israel. Daar bestaat een woord voor: een standaardwerk.
