Book Description Oneworld/Viva Books Private Limited, 2006. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Funny, challenging, controversial, passionate and unforgiving, this is an unprecedented personal account of a Muslim?s life in the modern world. Dr Esack is a Muslim theologian and academic; he is also a well-known commentator on Islamic affairs, and an outspoken social activist. Every day immersed in the hotbed of controversy where faith and modernity meet, Esack is in a unique position to trample unashamedly over the traditional boundaries between the spiritual and the secular to tackle some of the key questions facing Muslims in the contemporary age. These range from the intensely personal - such as cultivating a meaningful personal relationship with God and being honestly self-aware - to meeting the major socio-political challenges of today, such as gender equality, religious freedom and racial tolerance. A perceptive and ground breaking account of modern Islam, there is a great deal to be learnt from this book by anyone interested in the burning social and spiritual issues of the day. Contents ON BEING WITH ALLAH ? Can Allah be supremely indifferent? ? Between Allah and a neurotic self ? Allah: More than an ideological appendage ? Words and works for a window ? More to the rituals than motions? ? Don?t forget to marinate the meat! ? Ramadan: When boats are safe in the harbour ? ON BEING WITH MYSELF ? Freedom isn?t free ? Dying by the inches ? And the truth shall set you free ? Who says I?m not important? ? Life! Life! (Or is it ?Wife! Wife!??) ? ON BEING WITH YOU ? Beyond the Masks ? Why two ears and one mouth? ? Why does he take so long with the meat? ? To dump or not to dump? ? Though poverty became their lot ? My Brother?s flesh on the menu? ? ON BEING A SOCIAL BEING ? Revelation or revolution? ? The Reader?s Digest Islam ? Who?s in charge around here? ? On building burdens ? Wanna have some power? ? ON BEING WITH THE GENDERED OTHER ? On Mandela and Women ? The gender Jihad ? It?s just a dark blob out there ? The fall of man ? Calling all married couples ? The courage to be mad ? ON THE SELF IN A WORLD OF OTHERNESS ? Knock, knock - It?s the Malboet ( and He?s knocking for me) ? Go slowly with the mud! ? On Ants and elephants ? Long live Mrs Batista! ? Access to our waterholes? ? The jews! Watch out for the Jews ?
