During the early modern period, Muslims in China began to embrace the Chinese characteristics of their heritage. Several scholar-teachers began to incorporate tenets from traditional Chinese education into their promotion of Islamic knowledge. As a result, some Sino-Muslims established aneducational network, the scripture hall educational system (jingtang jiaoyu), which utilized an Islamic curriculum made up of Arabic, Persian, and Chinese works. The corpus of Chinese Islamic texts written in this system is collectively labeled the Han Kitab. Interpreting Islam in China explores the Sino-Islamic intellectual tradition through the works of some its brightest luminaries, in order to identify and explicate pivotal transitions in their engagement with the Islamic tradition. Three prominent Sino-Muslim authors are used to illustratetransformations within this tradition, Wang Daiyu (1590-1658), Liu Zhi (1670-1724), and Ma Dexin (1794-1874).Kristian Petersen puts these scholars in dialogue and demonstrates the continuities and departures within this tradition. Through an analysis of their writings on the subjects of pilgrimage,scripture, and language, he considers several questions: How malleable are religious categories and why are they variously interpreted across time? How do changing historical circumstances affect the interpretation of religious beliefs and practices? How do individuals navigate multiple sources ofauthority? How do practices inform belief? Overall, he shows, these authors presented an increasingly universalistic portrait of Islam through which Sino-Muslims were encouraged to participate within the global community of Muslims in both theological and experiential spaces. The growing emphasis onperforming the pilgrimage to Mecca, comprehensive knowledge of the Qur'an, and personal knowledge of Arabic further stimulated communal engagement. Petersen demonstrates that the integration of Sino-Muslims within a growing global environment, where international travel and communication wasincreasingly possible, was accompanied by the rising self-awareness of a universally engaged Muslim community.

Contesting The Theological Foundations Of Islamism And Violent Extremism

This edited volume discusses critically discursive claims about the theological foundations connecting Islam to certain manifestations of violent extremism. Such claims and associated debates become even more polarizing when images of violent acts of terrorism performed in the name of Islam circulate in the global media. The authors argue that the visibility of such mediated violent extremism, in particular since the emergence of ISIS, has created a major political and security challenge not only to the world but also to the global Muslim community. This is particularly true in relation to the way Islam is being understood and characterized in the modern world. Existing studies on radicalization generally deal with causes and strategies to address violent extremism. The book will appeal to scholars, researchers and students in political science, Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies.

The Practice Of Islam In America

An introduction to the ways in which ordinary Muslim Americans practice their faith. Muslims have always been part of the United States, but very little is known about how Muslim Americans practice their religion. How do they pray? What’s it like to go on pilgrimage to Mecca? What rituals accompany the birth of a child, a wedding, or the death of a loved one? What holidays do Muslims celebrate and what charities do they support? How do they learn about the Qur’an? The Practice of Islam in America introduces readers to the way Islam is lived in the United States, offering vivid portraits of Muslim American life passages, ethical actions, religious holidays, prayer, pilgrimage, and other religious activities. It takes readers into homes, religious congregations, schools, workplaces, cemeteries, restaurants—and all the way to Mecca—to understand the diverse religious practices of Muslim Americans. Going beyond a theoretical discussion of what Muslims are supposed to do, this volume focuses on what they actually do. As the volume reveals, their religious practices are shaped by their racial and ethnic identity, their gender and sexual orientation, and their sectarian identity, among other social factors. Readers gain practical information about Islamic religion while also coming to understand how the day-to-day realities of American life shape Muslim American practice.

لقد سمته مجلة تايم واحداً من أهم المئة المبتكرين في القرن. طارق رمضان هو من كبار العلماء المسلمين، وله أتباع عديدون لا سيما بين الشباب الأوروبيين والأمريكيين. وفي أول كتاب موجه إلى جمهور واسع فإنه يقدم سيرة رائعة للرسول محمد [ تلقي الضوء على التعاليم الروحية والأخلاقية لواحد من أكثر الشخصيات تأثيراً في تاريخ البشرية. يتضمن هذا الكتاب نظرة جديدة وعميقة إلى محمد [ ويسجل حياة حافلة بكل الأحداث الخطيرة. يرسم رمضان صورة حميمة لرجل يتمتع بالحياء والرقة، ولكنه حازم. والكتاب هو أيضاً تاريخ مثير لزعيم أطلق ديناً عظيماً كان إلهاماً لإمبراطورية شاسعة. والأهم من ذلك أن رمضان يعرض الأحداث الرئيسة من حياة النبي [ بطريقة تلقي الأضواء على تعاليمه الروحية والأخلاقية. ويؤكد الكتاب على أهمية قدوة النبي [ التي يمكن أن تستنير بها معظم قضايا اليوم المثيرة للجدل، مثل معاملة الفقراء ودور المرأة والعقوبات الجزائية الإسلامية والحرب والتعصب العرقي والعلاقات بالديانات الأخرى. وقد اختار المؤلف تلك الحقائق والقصص التي يمكننا أن نرسم استناداً إليها صورة روحية عميقة تنبض بالحياة ويتساءل كيف يمكن لحياة النبي [ أن تظل ـــ أو تصبح مرة ثانية ـــ قدوة ونموذجاً ومصدر إلهام؟ وكيف يمكن للمسلمين أن ينتقلوا من الجمود والتقيد بالطقوس إلى وجود روحي واجتماعي ملتزم؟ في هذه السيرة التي تنطوي على تفكير عميق يقدم رمضان للمسلمين نظرة جديدة إلى حياة محمد [ ويعرف غير المسلمين لا بمجرد قصة النبي [ بل بثروات الإسلام الروحية والأخلاقية. العبيكان 2016
