Islam Negotiating the Future


"Rashid Shaz is one of those who have visualised the growing debilitating state of the Muslims but he is one of the few who have come up with the right approach to this problem. Islam Negotiating the Future; is a book that aims to correct our primary approach to Islam."

Syed Ali Naqvi in The Nation, Lahore

"Some of his ideas are radical. Shaz places unconventional proposals in the book. It is for the thinking readers now to decide what can be done with them."

Shams Afif Siddiqi in The Telegraph - Calcutta

About This Book: This is a post-9/11 book on Islam. Contrary to the common perception, 9/11 has opened up a whole new world of opportunity for us. Muslims the world over have started questioning themselves why despite being the upholders of the Last Revelation, for so long, they have been living on the margins of history? Creative nations always turn their crisis hours into opportune moments. This book intends just to set the ball rolling in the right direction.

About This Book: The crisis of the West is acute and needs immediate attention. The western people are realishing fast that it is dangerous to ride on the same old world and many of them are desperate to get off. But there is no readily available alternative to the capitalist world system which the Muslim world itself has become an appendage to. The future depends not on Islamic evangelism, or any other evangelism for that matter, as many of us would like to believe, but on Islamic intellectualism, on our rediscovery of the great prophetic mission.

About This Book: Despite scores of interfaith dialogues that the last century witnessed and our mutual willingness to create a peaceful world, we have not been able to look at the Muslim people as they are; an ordinary lot living under a constant tension of carrying on their shoulders the Last Revelation, the Qur’an of the Almighty God. The situation is no better on the Muslim side as well which hardly differentiates between the crusaders and their bitter enemies within the western civilization and prefers to live in an ‘imagined’ world where others appear conspiring to make their life a hell. It is no easy Jihad to come out of one’s inherited Muslimness and acquire what the Qur’an calls an Abrahamic vision of faith where Islam is an attitude and not a yellow star to put on. It amounts to shedding the burden of history; looking at the modern man as he is and not judging him by the mistakes that his forefathers might have committed.

About This Book: This book is about a devastating tragedy that befell the Muslims In post-’47 India. In the pages that follow one gets acquainted with a revolutionary Ummah which, In Its ideological wilderness, shuns Its Idealisms and is eventually swallowed up by a seemingly neutral ideology of secularism. This conversion of Muslim Indians, from Islam to secularism, though In Itself a clear case of apostasy has otherwise gone unnoticed.
