Western Muslims and the Future of Islam
Tariq Ramadan, one of Europe's leading thinkers and one of Islam's most innovative and important voices, explores in this volume what it means to be a Western Muslim, addressing a topic that is vitally important to the futures of both Islam and the West. Ramadan claims that 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.
