Funny, challenging, controversial, and unforgiving, this is an unprecedented personal account of a Muslim's life in the modern world.

On Being a Muslim: Finding a Religious Path in the World Today ePub (Adobe DRM) can be read on any device that can open ePub (Adobe DRM) files. An Unexpected Journey from Islam to Christianity In Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way.
Both girls were gearing up for a lifetime of prostration, meditation and single-sex socialising and offered gleaning insights into how their lives had taken a better turn from the moment they embraced Islam. We talked about everything from relationships, sex and family, and it was clear the prospect of love and marriage lingered heavily over their heads.
Contrary to the sneering stereotypes of some sections of the press, British women converting to Islam do not enter the realm of the socially immobile and culturally policed.
For Jessica, grubby tabloids and the casual sexualisation of British society helped explain the irresistible appeal of puritanism for some British females.
As interesting as it was hearing these converts share memories from the past and express delight at their leap of faith, I was looking more forward to interviewing native Muslims who had grown up in British Muslim families, to find out what they thought about their convert sisters in faith. For practising Muslim Lutfa, the no-nonsense hard-line exteriors of some converts bring a certain noise and colour to the religion which she feels can only be good for the faith. Whatever we may think of these converts, their decision to become Muslim may be a powerful indictment of some women’s lives in the west. Trampling over the boundaries between the religious and the secular in order to tackle some of the key questions facing Muslims in the contemporary age, this text presents an account of modern Islam. Not just an excursion on Islam and being a Muslim, as anticipated, but a deeply felt personal exploration on being human, first and foremost. I didn't like most parts of the book, sometimes because I didn't like his writing style (he tries to be funny but nothing made me laugh) but mostly because the content wasn't what I want to read about Islam. Finding a life companion can sometimes be easy, like when you meet someone at work, at school, or at an event.
So for the South Asian, Arab, and other Muslim communities all over the country and here in the Bay, one solution that mixes the traditional and American worlds of courtship is something called a matrimonial event. It’s a Saturday afternoon, and about 80 young men and women, sharply dressed, fill a room decorated with purple decor, red roses, and scented candles. Baba Ali is a comedian and the founder of this event, called Half Our Deen, a name taken from the Islamic principle that when you marry, you have fulfilled 50 percent of your religious duties in life. This event doesn’t have any parents present, setting it apart from the majority of other Muslim singles events where moms and dads are invited and sit on the sidelines keeping a close eye on the action. At her table, there are three other women and four men – an uncommon sight at most Muslim gatherings where the sexes sit separately.
Three hours in, it seems to me, this is a good way to meet people, but not necessarily to find “the one.” Then, I see this man fidgeting nervously in a corner. Tamer says, “I’ve actually found a very nice match, but I don’t know if the other side would like to date or, I don’t know.” He is a nervous wreck.
And off he walks slowly toward her, hoping she feels the same way about him – proof that even a matchmaker can’t save you from the uncertainty of love. From New York Times best-selling author and former Muslim Nabeel Qureshi comes this personal, challenging, and respectful answer to the many questions surrounding jihad, the rise of ISIS, and Islamic terrorism.


There are nine rooms in the House of Islam and the Wind of God's Spirit is blowing through every one of them. Rifqa Bary grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents' orders to practice the rituals of Islam.
Pastor Tom Doyle has spent 11 years as a full-time missionary in the Middle East and Central Asia, spreading the Word of Jesus Christ.
Goda€™s people are hiding in plain sightTens of millions of Christians live in China today, leading double lives to hide from a government that relentlessly persecutes them. As an Islamic scholar, outspoken social activist and well-known commentator, Esack is in a unique position to tackle the quandaries and challenges facing Muslims today.

Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. But in a weird way, I felt Chantelle had more freedom than I did by covering herself, instead of letting it all out like me. As we entered deep into our discussions, they also took a moment to discuss the challenges which lay in their wake.
Like those I interviewed, they’ve found a new lease of life as tee-totalling Brits, dragging women from under the voyeuristic yoke. Our culture has become so sex obsessed, its making parenting tougher than I thought”. Accepting Islam was a way of her silently reproaching the cultural failure to improve the lot of women: “Why do you think so many women are becoming Muslim in this country? That’s the impression they all left me, especially Jessica who would repeatedly ask whether feminism had delivered on its promise. May be difficult reading for those who are unfamiliar with the Quranic text and presentation, but fundamentally an uplifting book about the internal battles we all undergo in our lives. But more often than not, it’s hard – especially when you come from a conservative culture where arranged marriages and parent involvement in choosing a spouse are common.
Often sent by their parents, singles meet, talk, play games, all in the same room at the same time with the hopes of meeting that special person. Ali was inspired to start the matchmaking company – and website with the same name – based on his own experience searching for a wife 11 years ago. David Garrison spent three years travelling a quarter of a million miles through every corner of the Muslim world to investigate reports far and wide of Muslims turning to faith in Jesus Christ.
Throughout his journey, he has encountered a staggering number of Muslims who were first introduced to Jesus through a vision or dream so powerful they eventually turned from their lifelong religion of Islam and embraced Christ as their Savior.
By day, Bob Fu was a teacher in a communist school; by night, he was a preacher in an underground house church network. Whether it be cultivating a meaningful relationship with Allah or striving for gender equality, this groundbreaking work will help believers and non-believers alike to appreciate the eternal relevance of the Qur'an.
Whether it be cultivating a meaningful relationship with Allah or striving for gender equality and religious freedom, Esack combines personal insight with incisive analysis. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.
My recent interviews with Muslim converts offered a rare glimpse into the lives of three women who would flatly reject such comparisons.


But I do wonder whether I can have a boyfriend or what my chances of marrying a native Muslim will be.
Neither of them was borne of any resignation and were at pains to convince others that their new identities hadn’t sapped their career ambitions or aspirations in the slightest. If Chantelle and Monique are anything to go by, then sex doesn’t have to sell for women to compete on the same terms. So amidst all the everyday sexism and cultural creepiness hounding British women, is Islam somehow squaring their circle?  Are burkas, niqaabs and hijaabs breathing soul in the lives of girls which desperately lack a higher calling, helping them reclaiming the watchwords of feminism? Sixty-three percent of Muslims in America are first generation immigrants, and come with strong value sets that are not very compatible with the American dating scene. Like many here, family played a role in her coming.  “My dad forwarded me the event, so I had no choice,” Samira laughs.
In this amazing odyssey, Garrison gathered the stories of more than a thousand Muslim-background believers, asking them the question: What did God use to bring you to faith in Jesus Christ? To many Christians in the Middle East today, a "momentary, light affliction" means enduring only torture instead of martyrdom. This edge-of-your-seat book tells the true story of Fua€™s conversion to Christianity, his arrest and imprisonment for starting an illegal house church, his harrowing escape, and his subsequent rise to prominence in the United States as an advocate for his oppressed brethren. Providing a devout yet practical guide for those seeking to re-engage with their faith in the modern world, this groundbreaking work will help believers and non-believers alike to appreciate the eternal relevance of the Qur’an and its teachings. Engaging and thought-provoking, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus tells a powerful story of the clash between Islam and Christianity in one man's heart---and of the peace he eventually found in Jesus. And they’re all buzzing with spiritual ecstasy, retelling what caused them to halal-ify their wardrobes and Islamise dress codes. Does the conversion to Islam among British women bode healthily for Britain’s future?
The second thing that struck me is how much the Muslim community in the USA can learn from the South African Muslim experience which serves as the backdrop for this author's perspectives and emphasis on social justice and a perspective on Islam that is pluralistic and connected to the larger society. Undoubtedly controversial in its message of gender equality regardless of the reader's religious preference. The depth of oppression Jesus' followers suffer is unimaginable to most Western Christians. Dr Faird Esack has an international reputation as a Muslim scholar, speaker and human rights activist.
Basically, I feel completely transformed and hate to be reminded of my past because that was me then, and this is me now”. Yet it is an everyday reality for those who choose faith over survival in Syria, Iran, Egypt, Lebanon, and other countries hostile to the Gospel of Christ. He has lectured widely on religion and Islamic studies and also served as a Commissioner for Gender Equality with Nelson Mandela's government.
