Summary
ISLAMIC STUDIES. This title rejects the narrative of violence in Islam's history, not as a matter of fact - this narrative clearly exists, as Halverson demonstrates - but rather as a matter of choice, presenting peaceful nonviolence as a new way forward for Muslims. It explores the lives and teachings of Muslim scholars and activists who champion nonviolent interpretations of Islam, including Jawdat Saeed (Syria), Wahiduddin Khan (India), Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Shirazi (Iraq), Mahmoud Muhammad Taha (Sudan), and Abdul-Ghaffar Khan (Afghanistan/Pakistan). It argues that nonviolence is critical to prosperity for the Muslim world. At a time when violent images of the Muslim world dominate our headlines, Western audiences are growing increasingly interested in a different picture of Islam, specifically the idea of Muslim nonviolence, and what it could mean for the world
