They 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. This book rejects once and for all the idea that Islam must be defined in opposition to the West. Islam and the Arab Awakening by Tariq Ramadan Book 21 editions published between and in 3 languages and held by 1, WorldCat member libraries worldwide One of the most important developments in the modern history of the Middle East, the so-called Arab Spring began in Tunisia in December , bringing down dictators, sparking a civil war in Libya, and igniting a bloody uprising in Syria.
Its long-term repercussions in Egypt and elsewhere remain unclear. In this book, the author explores the uprisings, offering rare insight into their origin, significance, and possible futures. As early as , there had been talk of democratization in the Middle East and North Africa.
But the West did not create the uprisings. Indeed, one lesson presented here is that these mass movements and their consequences cannot be totally controlled. Something irreversible has taken place: But, democratic processes are only beginning to emerge, and unanswered questions remain. What role will religion play? How should Islamic principles and goals be rethought? Can a sterile, polarizing debate between Islamism and secularism be avoided? To be a European Muslim: Based on a thorough study of Islamic sources, it seeks to answer basic questions about a European Muslim's social, political, cultural and legal life as a practising Muslim while living together in multi-faith, pluralistic European nation states.
Islamic ethics and liberation by Tariq Ramadan Book 32 editions published between and in English and German and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Tariq Ramadan has emerged as one of the foremost voices of reformist Islam in the West, notable for urging his fellow Muslims to participate fully in the civil life of the Western societies in which they live.
In this new book, Ramadan addresses Muslim societies and communities everywhere with a bold call for radical reform. He challenges those who argue defensively that reform is a dangerous and foreign deviation, and a betrayal of the faith. Authentic reform, he says, has always been grounded in Islam's textual sources, spiritual objectives, and intellectual traditions.
But the reformist movements that are based on renewed reading of textual sources while using traditional methodologies and categories have achieved only adaptive responses to the crisis facing a globalizing world. Such readings, Ramadan argues, have reached the limits of their usefulness. This new approach interrogates the historically established sources, categories, higher objectives, tools, and methodologies of Islamic law and jurisprudence, and the authority this traditional geography of knowledge has granted to textual scholars.
He proposes a new geography that redefines the sources and the spiritual and ethical objectives of the law, creating room for the authority of scholars of the social and hard sciences. This will equip this transformative reform with the spiritual, ethical, social, and scientific knowledge necessary to address contemporary challenges. Ramadan argues that radical reform demands not only the equal contributions of scholars of both the text and the context but also the critical engagement and creative imagination of the Muslim masses.

Avoiding ideology and idealism, Ramadan brings to life an essence of the true meaning of Islam and its implications today. No prior knowledge of Islam is required; the book makes the complexity of Islam easy to understand by looking closely at its multi-faceted reality as a religion, and at the civilization that arose from it. The book begins with definitions, and basic principles of Islam.
It then delves into history: The six pillars of faith will also be presented, along with the five pillars of practice, as well as Islam's prescribed rights, duties and prohibitions, the principles of Muslim mysticism and the elements of Islamic philosophy and ethics. The two final chapters focus on the modern era, offering a broad overview of the debates and controversies that are shaking Muslim-majority societies, and reshaping the lives of those who live as minorities elsewhere.
