- MISQUOTING MUHAMMAD : THE CHALLENGE AND CHOICES OF INTERPRETING THE PROPHETS LEGACY
DetailsAN INDEPENDENT BEST BOOKS ON RELIGION 2014 PICK.Few things provoke controversy in the modern world like the religion brought by Prophet Muhammad. Modern media are replete with alarm over jihad, underage marriage and the threat of amputation or stoning under Shariah law. Sometimes rumor, sometimes based on fact and often misunderstood, the tenets of Islamic law and dogma were not set in the religion's founding moments. They were developed, like in other world religions, over centuries by the clerical class of Muslim scholars.Misquoting Muhammad takes the reader back in time through Islamic civilization and traces how and why such controversies developed, offering an inside view into how key and controversial aspects of Islam took shape. From the protests of the Arab Spring to Istanbul at the fall of the Ottoman Empire, and from the ochre red walls of Delhi's great mosques to the trade routes of the Indian Ocean world, Misquoting Muhammad lays out how Muslim intellectuals have sought to balance reason and revelation, weigh science and religion, and negotiate the eternal truths of scripture amid shifting values.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jonathan A.C. Brown is an associate professor of Islamic Studies and Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University. His books includeMuhammad: A Very Short Introduction andHadith: Muhammad's Legacy in the Medieval and Modern World. He lives in Washington, D.C.
