Description - Inside Muslim Minds by Riaz Hassan

A ground-breaking comparative study of contemporary Islamic consciousness, ""Inside Muslim Minds"" is an important insight into aspects of the Muslim faith, and its place in the twenty-first century.Using data gathered from more than six thousand Muslim respondents from Southeast, South and Central Asia and the Middle East, Raiz Hassan examines attitudes to issues such as religious commitment; the status of women; the concept of jihad and its alleged links to terrorism; Islamic philanthropy; attitudes towards blasphemy; and, Muslim perceptions of the 'other'.Hassan offers a theory of Islamic consciousness by examining its evolution over several centuries. His findings demonstrate the diversity of the Muslim world: the many variations of social, political and religious views.""Inside Muslim Minds"" argues for a new intellectual commitment that honours Islamic heritage yet simultaneously confronts Islamic reassertion and the sense of powerlessness felt by Muslims as they strive to reaffirm their faith in the twenty-first century.
