Islam on the Street : Religion in Modern Arabic Literature, Paperback / softback Book

Islam on the Street : Religion in Modern Arabic Literature Paperback / softback


Islam on the Street deals with the popular side of Islam, as described not only in tracts and manuals written by Sufi shaykhs and Islamist thinkers from among the more militant groups in Islam, but also in writings by other, more secular thinkers who have also influenced public opinion.

Muhsin al-Musawi explains the growing rift that has occurred between the secular intellectual-the forerunner of Arab and Islamic modernity since the late nineteenth century-and the upsurge of Islamic fervor in the street, at the grassroots level, and what these secular intellectuals can do to reconnect with the masses.
