Published by Al-Karam Publications, UK.
I AM A BRITISH MUSLIM is a timely publication that is concise and straight-forward. The book commences with the history of Islam in Great Britain as well as the highly significant era of Muslim Spain that has lasting effects on the modern world. It then broadly highlights the code of British citizenship and then comprehensively examines the rights and responsibilities of British Muslims in light of the teachings of Islam.
Covering the themes of neighbours, civic participation, social cohesion, conduct towards others as well as duties towards the children, it also provides food for thought relating to Islamophobia, anti-Islamic hate, media and security for person and property.
The author has also provided sound reasoning and refutations of the popular criticism and allegations made against the religion of Islam. Written in the author’s unique and to-the-point style, the book is an essential read for Muslims and non-Muslims living in the Western world.
