Description

In Allah, Liberty and Love, Irshad Manji paves a path for Muslims and non-Muslims to transcend the fears that stop so many of us from living with honest-to- God integrity: the fear of offending others in a multicultural world as well as the fear of questioning our own communities. Since publishing her international bestseller, The Trouble with Islam Today, Manji has moved from anger to aspiration. She shows how any of us can reconcile faith with freedom and thus discover the Allah of liberty and love—the universal God that loves us enough to give us choices and the capacity to make them.

Among the most visible Muslim reformers of our era, Manji draws on her experience in the trenches to share stories that are deeply poignant, frequently funny and always revealing about these morally confused times. What prevents young Muslims, even in the West, from expressing their need for religious reinterpretation? What scares non-Muslims about openly supporting liberal voices within Islam? How did we get into the mess of tolerating intolerable customs, such as honor killings, and how do we change that noxious status quo? How can people ditch dogma while keeping faith? Above all, how can each of us embark on a personal journey toward moral courage—the willingness to speak up when everybody else wants to shut you up?

Allah, Liberty and Love is the ultimate guide to becoming a gutsy global citizen. Irshad Manji believes profoundly not just in Allah, but also in her fellow human beings.

From Publishers Weekly

May 09, 2011 – The controversial Manji follows up The Trouble with Islam Today with the surprising Allah, Liberty, and Love. Whereas Manji's first book brazenly critiqued all things Islamic from the Qur'an, Muhammad, and mosques to individual Muslims Manji here generally speaks admiringly of her Islamic faith. Although Manji has some interesting ideas, such as desiring to bring into the tent those Muslims seen as "countercultural," her counterarguments directed at Muslim women who wear hijab (the veil) as a feminist statement are simply narrow. The book suffers from manipulative attempts at drawing sympathy from the reader, including constant references to the death threats she receives, how such threats invoke anxiety in her mother, and exhaustive quoting of nasty e-mails sent to Manji (both from Muslims and non-Muslims) and her responses. The result is a tit-for-tat pace that might work better on cable television. Though Manji urges readers to strive for moral courage in the tradition of great leaders (many of whom Manji compares herself to, such as Martin Luther King Jr.), her combative tone may only invite more nasty e-mails from those who disagree.

Customer Reviews

Eye opening!!!!

Really gives you a different view if what happen.

Liberty and love

Sorry. There is no command in the Quran to love anyone and there is no such thing as "liberty" anywhere in Islam. I've studied it myself and I've spent lots of time in the middle east. Yes I met many Muslims who want peace but you have to ignore large swaths of the Quran and Hadith and then create your own version of Islam. There is simply no such thing as liberty and love. Sorry. I know this from my own first hand experience. There is only one God of peace and that name is Yeshua the Messiah.
