Controversies in Contemporary Islam

This book is structured in terms of a number of issues that are controversial among Muslims or between Muslims and others. It is based on the proposition, as the author tells us in the “Introduction”, that religions are not based on commonly accepted principles that define them but on “the arguments and disagreements which rage throughout the religion and which represent the parameters of what people believe.” Each of the fourteen chapters focuses on a particular topic of controversy, such as leadership of the community, God, nationalism, economics, morality, and Sufism.
