The Muslim Next Door PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Muslim Next Door free pdf In recent years, Muslims and the Islamic world have flooded headlines, politics, and American conversation. And, although we hear about Islam on a daily basis, there remains no clear explanation of Islam or its people. "Islam at Home" offers academically sound answers to these perennial questions in a user-friendly and personal context from the point of view of an American Muslim.The book addresses what lay readers in the Western world want to know about and uniquely combines the following elements: a vivid and engaging first-person narrative that frames clear discussions drawn from questions the author has answered throughout her life- a short, thorough overview of Islam written for the lay reader and conveyed through anecdotes and stories about growing up Muslim and female in the West- a well-researched information based on a solid academic foundation, woven together with a personal narrative that entertains like fiction- and an informative layout that begins with the basics of Islam and builds toward more complicated issues like jihad and the status of women in Islam. This is an entertaining, informative book that people all over the world, Muslim and non-Muslim, will want to read.

About Sumbul Ali-Karamali

Sumbul Ali-Karamali grew up in California, balancing her South Asian, Muslim, and American identities. Often the only Muslim her acquaintances knew, she had ample practice answering questions about Islam and Muslims. ("What do you mean you can't go to the prom because of your religion?") While working as a corporate lawyer, she was repeatedly asked to recommend books on Islam, so she decided to write a book that was both academically reliable and entertaining to read. Consequently, she moved to London and earned her L.L.M. in Islamic Law from the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies. She served as a teaching assistant in Islamic Law at SOAS and a research associate at the Centre of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law in London, and then she wrote The Muslim Next Door for everyone who ever asked -- or wanted to ask -- a question about Islam.
