    Islam and the Problems of Modernity. Posted by: Ahmed Ali in Analysis, General, His reflective approach lent his lecture a degree of freedom to muse over the topic, though in the end it lacked perhaps the finality shown by Sheikh Haitham. hence the term Islamic Modernity. Bhambra’s recent book, Rethinking Modernity.   Drawing on the Building Bridges seminar, Tradition and Modernity focuses on how Christians and Muslims connect their traditions to modernity, looking especially at understandings of history, changing patterns of authority, and approaches to freedom. The volume includes a selection of relevant texts from nineteenth- and twentieth-century thinkers, from John Henry Newman to Tariq .

Modernity is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon rather than a unified and coherent one. It has historically had different schools of thought moving in many directions.

    In fact, her religion at the start seems like a type of freedom. Religion, Islam and Zoroastrianism, and its many stories and traditions allow Marjane an escape not only into fancy and imagined glory—she sees herself as the last prophet—but also into ideas of social equality, aid . Such is the foundation of the Islamic concept of freedom and such is the value of freedom in Islam. It is a natural right of man, a spiritual privilege, a moral prerogative, and, above all, a religious duty. Within the framework of this Islamic concept of freedom, there is no room for religious persecutions, class conflict, or racial prejudice.

Book Description. The relationship between Islam and modernity has generated and rich but complex literature.

While competing accounts sometimes appear incommensurable, there is at least some convergence on the view that Islam and modernity reflect an unsettled encounter. This book by a scholar of Arab Christian background aims to assist reform-minded Muslims in developing a ‘creative synthesis’ between Islam and modernity.

The book is called Islam the West and the Challenges of Modernity. It is pages long and is in my opinion the most important book to come out dealing with the subject in recent memory. Why is it important? A lot of times our scholars, intellectuals, and activists are bogged down in things that have little import on our daily lives/5.
