About this title


God has created humankind with a disposition towards diversity. Individuals and societies are distinct based on the objective environmental circumstances of the time and place in which they live, their own subjective motivations, and the interaction between the two elements. However, human beings, with all their diversity, are equal in their human origin: Religious faith cannot mean exclusive and permanent rightness for a certain individual or group, and the opposite for all others, since all human beings have their free will and intellect, and no human is errorless, except those individuals who were entrusted by God to convey His message to people and were protected by Him against making any error in delivering the divine message. This book represents a comprehensive ijtihad on the subject of "The Other" within an Islamic framework. Ijtihad in Arabic means the practice of the greatest possible intellectual effort to interpret and implement the divine guidance. This includes considering the sources in their entirety and recognizing their structure and their inter-relations. This book will enhance the understanding of the Islamic conceptualization of relations between the rulers and the ruled, the haves and the have-nots, the national and the universal, different genders and generations, and Muslims and non-Muslims.

About the Author:

Dr. Fathi Osman is a world-renowned scholar of Islam who has been studying the development of contemporary Islamic thinking since 1947. The Los Angeles Times, The Muslim Observer, as well as Muslim and non-Muslim academicians from institutions such as Harvard University, Georgetown University, and the University of Virginia, have all had high praise for Dr. Osman's work and publications. Osman has written extensively about the process of change in understanding Islamic concepts, Islamic perspectives on human and gender rights, the Islamic approach to pluralism, and the analysis of Islamic history and its interpretation. His last book Concepts of The Quran is used as a reference book in college courses and many libraries.
