ISLAM: NEW FRONTIERS
VOLUME I & II
New Literature for a New Era
Islam: New Frontiers is perhaps one of the most serious and challenging books in our hands today – on just about any topic. At the same time, paradoxically, few books are perhaps more fun or exciting to read or contemplate.
How could it be otherwise?
For, the book is on Islam and Muslims, and there is no more serious or significant topic in today’s world than that one. And on top of that, the book is based almost entirely on the Qur’an, which is an extraordinary methodology to use in this time and age to say the least.
The object of the book seems to be nothing less than a complete restructuring of human thought and inquiry on the most fundamental notions of God and his creation on the one hand and the nature of humanity’s role on earth on the other hand.
If the name of the game is taking dominant sociopolitical, cultural and communication paradigms of the day and flipping them on their head, then there is no stronger candidate for that role among today’s publications than Dr. Pasha’s Islam: New Frontiers. Nor is there perhaps a book more relevant to the turbulent times through which our world is passing today. The Publishers are owed a debt of gratitude for making a publication of this moment and significance available to the English-speaking world at this juncture in our history.
If the book is read with the seriousness and attention it merits, it has the potential to have as profound and far-reaching an impact on religion, society, government and human relations as Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species eventually came to have on scientific and social thought nearly a century and a half earlier.
Dr. Pasha is perhaps one of the most fearless and original thinkers of a generation. The Muslim world – and in many ways the rest of the world – has not produced a clearer or more energetic analyst or thinker like him on the topic of Islam and Muslims since Iqbal and Maududi of India, Syed Qutb of Egypt and Ali Shari’ati of Iran. His style combines clarity and rationality with a hint of sarcasm and humor all of which make his writing powerful and irresistible, even when it unfolds in its lighter vein which it does from time to time.
In the confusion and chaos that sweep the world on Islam and Muslims today, Dr. Pasha’s Islam: New Frontiers is a must-read for everyone, everywhere. Whether in the mass media or blogosphere, and whether in the universities or in government and policy circles, and regardless of whether that person is a Muslim or a non-Muslim, Dr. Pasha’s Islam: New Frontiers is one book that no thoughtful reader can afford to miss.
Dr. Pasha is an American academic with a strong Islamic background.
Reader Reaction to the Book Islam: New Frontiers
"Dear Dr. Pasha: Thank you so much for this book. What an inspiring reading....
The book gave me so much reasons why I've chosen to embrace Islam as a way of life.
As a new convert, this book is an epiphany for me; you've absolutely encapsulated everything I do read from the meaning of the Koran, and the book epitomises Islam with tremendous sincerity, and this is what I believe Islam is all about.
Thanks again for this valuable work and Allah bless you for this good work."
