In Pursuit of Justice: The Jurisprudence of Human Rights in Islam (Maher Hathout)
Finally, someone steps up and writes a book that will help bridge the gap between Muslim and non-muslim thinking. Many question whether Islam is compatible with democracy, and Dr.Hathout provides the answers. He covers a plethora of humanitarian issues (womens rights, slavery, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the sanctity of life, among others)and disects Islam’s perspective and stance on each. This is a must read for everyone, especially those who criticize Islam’s place in the world, and especially
America. Dr. Hathout shows the parallels between the accepted American ideals and Islam, and makes it easy for all types of readers to understand. This is a paramount guide for all who either appreciate or do not understand the truth of Islam. You WILL not find a book with the same type of unique insight!
