    About The Book

    ”Almost daily, armed thugs call for a ’holy war’ against everyone who disagrees with them.  More and more young men wear beards and robes as political badges.  Militant preachers proclaim that women who fail to wear the veil are ’waging war against God’.

         ”But this Islam of intolerance and violence is not the religion of my father and grandfather.  It is not the Islam that inspires more than a billion people around the world to pray, to fast, to give to the poor, to make the pilgrimage to Mecca.  My Islam is a religion of tolerance and brotherhood.” — Sa’id al-’Ashmawy

    ”A welcome addition to the discourse on Islamic fundamentalism and its efforts to politicize Islam.” — Aljadid

    ”Offers a coherent testimonial to al-’Ashmawy’s insight and bravery… The translation is highly readable.” — Choice


    ”Helps to build a more balanced and accurate awareness of the full spectrum of Muslim thought… An important contribution.” — John O. Voll, Georgetown University

    One of the Islamic world’s leading voices in the struggle against extremism, Sa’id al-’Ashmawy was trained as a specialist in Islamic law and comparative law at Cairo University and served as judge, chief prosecutor, chief justice of the High Criminal Court, chief justice of the High Court for Security of State as well as chief justice of the High Court Assizes in Egypt. The author of 15 books on Islam and the law, he has been consistently critical of Islamic extremism and opposes the very notion of an Islamic state, on both scriptural and historical grounds.

    Facing death threats for apostasy since 1979 and under continuous government protection since 1980, he articulates an opposition to the ideology and practice of Islamic extremists in Egypt that has applicability throughout the Middle East and North Africa.  This volume conveys the range of his reformist message from the similarities of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, to the dangers of politicizing Islamic religion, to the place of Islamic law in contemporary politics and society.
