Western Muslims: From Integration To Contribution

6.99

This book sheds light on the role of Western Muslims and offers paradigms for thought and civic engagement. The politics of integration is discussed and a dynamic roadmap for positive contribution is outlined. The author also highlights the mental paradigm shift required to make this contribution meaningful. Muslims must now reconsider the perception we have of ourselves, our environment and even our values.
From this time forward, it is imperative that we rethink our discourse, our rhetoric and our partnerships. Ultimately, we must refashion an education about ourselves, about the environment and with others. Every individual must appropriate his or her own responsibilities. Before God, in our souls, and in our consciousness we will only receive what we have earned.
Muslims must shape themselves, live and project their values and commit themselves. This is what God requires from the conscious, everyday lives of all faithful individuals. In the end, our way of life is evaluated by our way of giving and contributing to human welfare, to justice and to respectful diversity.
