b Tariq Ramadan b attempts to demonstrate using sources which draw upon Islamic thought and civilization that Muslims can respond to contemporary challenges of modernity without betraying their identity The book argues that Muslims nurished by their own points of reference can approach the modern epoch by adopting a specific social political and economic model that is linked to ethical values a sense of finalities and spirituality Rather than a modernism that tends to impose Westernization it is a modernity that admits to the pluralism of civilizations religions and cultures br br b Table of Contents b br Foreword br Introduction br History of a Concept br The Lessons of History br Part At the shores of Transcendence between God and Man br Part The Horizons of Islam Between Man and the Community br Part Values and Finalities The Cultural Dimension of the Civilizational Face to Face br Conclusion br Appendix br Index br br b Tariq Ramadan b is a professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Oxford and a visiting professor in Identity and Citizenship at Erasmus University He was named by i TIME i Magazine as one of the one hundred innovators of the twenty first century, 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 br br Ramadan calls for a radical reform that goes beyond adaptation to envision bold and creative solutions to transform the present and the future of our societies 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 which 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 the critical engagement and creative imagination of the Muslim masses This proposal for radical reform dramatically shifts the center of gravity of authority It is bound to provoke controversy and spark debate among Muslims and non Muslims alike br, i To Be a European Muslim i addresses some of the fundamental issues born of the several million strong Muslim presence in Europe in our times Based on a thorough study of Islamic sources it seeks to answer basic questions about European Muslims social political cultural and legal integration br br b Tariq Ramadan b is recognized worldwide for his original scholarship He is a professor of Islamic studies at the University of Oxford and was named by i Time i magazine as one of the one hundred innovators of the twenty first century, Tariq Ramadan is one of the most acclaimed figures in the analysis of Islam and its political dimensions today In The Arab Awakening he explores the opportunities and challenges across North Africa and the Middle East as they look to create new more open societies He asks Can Muslim countries bring together Islam pluralism and democracy without betraying their identity Will the Arab world be able to reclaim its memory to reinvent education women s rights social justice economic growth and the fight against corruption Can this emancipation be envisioned with Islam experienced not as a straitjacket but as an ethical and cultural wealth Arguing that the debate cannot be reduced to a confrontation between two approaches the modern and secular versus the traditional and Islamic Ramadan demonstrates that not only are both of these routes in crisis but that the Arab world has an historic opportunity to stop blaming the West to jettison its victim status and to create a truly new dynamic Tariq Ramadan offers up a challenge to the Middle East What enduring legacy will you produce from the historic moment of the Arab Spring
