Democracy in Islam by Sayed Khatab
Book DescriptionChallenging the view of Islamic extremists and critics of Islam, this book explores the very topical issue of Islam's compatibility with democracy. It examines: * principles of Islam's political theory and the notion of democracy therein * the notion of democracy in medieval and modern Muslim thought * Islam and human rights * the contribution of Islamic legal ideas to European legal philosophy and law. The book addresses the pressing need for a systematic show of an Islamic politics of human rights and democracy grounded in the Qur'an. The West wonders about Islam and human rights, and its own ability to incorporate Muslim minority communities. Many Muslims also seek to find within Islam support source for democratic governance and human rights.
