MENUMENU - الكتاب
Islam Today - Ideals and Realities
By: Ariff, Mohamed

Language: English


Muslims are branded by the media under many labels: extremist, moderate, liberal, fundamentalist, Islamist, etc. Islamophobia permeates throughout the world, creating a barrier between Muslims and non-Muslims. The reasons for this face-to-face conflict between Islam and its detractors are complex. Some Muslims, who misrepresent Islam through their misconduct, are also a factor in all this.

The author writes as a devout Muslim and condemns in no uncertain terms the violence and other crimes committed by some misguided groups in the name of Islam. The author demonstrates that all that has nothing to do with Islam and that the reality of Islam is preserved in the Qur’an and the Prophet’s life examples. At the same time, the author also speaks of the disconnect between theory and practice and the tension between ideals and realities in the Islamic context.

In nine short chapters, the author synthesises the ideals and the present-day realities of Islam. This small book may serve as the first step for the reader to take the wider journey to understand the many splendored phenomenon that Islam indeed is.
