Commentary on the Eleventh Contentions
Abdal Hakim Murad
Paperback, 176 pages
Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad's insightful commentary on his eleventh set of 100 contentions, a contemporary take on the classical Islamic genre of aphorisms
The philosopher Jürgen Habermas claims that 'modernism is dominant but dead'. A corollary might be: 'Islam is despised but thriving.' The short essays in this collection give thanks for this defining irony of our culture, and put flesh on a hundred bones of contention.
"Simply riveting. Abdal Hakim Murad reminds us that it can still be done: we can worship God and honour the legacy of His Prophet with love, humility, wisdom and courage - not to mention style and grace! Modernity is simply our context. We must never allow it to become our excuse." - Sherman Jackson
