The Great Theft: Wrestling Islam from the Extremists

Out of stock. Delivery time unknown.

Description

This is a passionate defense of Islam against the encroaching tide of fundamentalists corrupting the true faith. In "The Great Theft", Khaled Abou El Fadl, one of the world's preeminent Islamic scholars argues that Islam is currently passing through a transformative moment no less dramatic than the movements that swept through Europe during the Reformation. At this critical juncture, there are two completely opposed worldviews within Islam competing to define this great world religion. Drawing on the rich tradition of Islamic history and law, "The Great Theft" is an impassioned defense of Islam against the encroaching power of the extremists. As an accomplished Islamic jurist, Abou El Fadl roots his arguments in long-standing historical legal debates and delineates point by point the beliefs and practices of moderate Muslims, distinguishing these texts from the corrupting influences of the extremists. From the role of women in Islam to the nature of jihad, from democracy and human rights to terrorism and warfare, Abou El Fadl builds a vital vision for a moderate Islam. At long last, the great majority of Muslims who oppose extremism have a desperately needed voice to help reclaim Islam's great moral tradition.
