Western Muslims and the future of Islam by Tariq Ramadan( Book )

39 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a Western world suddenly acutely interested in Islam, one question has been repeatedly heard above the din: where are the Muslim reformers? With this book, Tariq Ramadan firmly establishes himself as one of Islam's most innovative and important voices. As the number of Muslims living in the West grows, the question of what it means to be a Western Muslim becomes increasingly important. While the media are focused on radical Islam, Ramadan claims, a silent revolution is sweeping Islamic communities in the West, as Muslims actively seek ways to live in harmony with their faith within a Western context. They are reshaping their religion into one that is faithful to the principles of Islam, dressed in European and American cultures, and definitively rooted in Western societies. This book rejects once and for all the idea that Islam must be defined in opposition to the West.--From publisher description
Islam and the Arab Awakening by Tariq Ramadan( Book )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important developments in the modern history of the Middle East, the so-called Arab Spring began in Tunisia in December 2010, bringing down dictators, sparking a civil war in Libya, and igniting a bloody uprising in Syria. Its long-term repercussions in Egypt and elsewhere remain unclear. Now one of the world's leading Islamic thinkers examines and explains it, in this searching, provocative, and necessary book. Time Magazine named Tariq Ramadan one of the most important innovators of the twenty-first century. A Muslim intellectual and prolific author, he has won global renown for his reflections on Islam and the contemporary challenges in both the Muslim majority societies and the West. In Islam and the Arab Awakening, he explores the uprisings, offering rare insight into their origin, significance, and possible futures. As early as 2003, he writes, there had been talk of democratization in the Middle East and North Africa. The U.S. government and private organizations set up networks and provided training for young leaders, especially in the use of the Internet and social media, and the West abandoned its unconditional support of authoritarian governments. But the West did not create the uprisings. Indeed, one lesson Ramadan presents is that these mass movements and their consequences cannot be totally controlled. Something irreversible has taken place: dictators have been overthrown without weapons. But, he writes, democratic processes are only beginning to emerge, and unanswered questions remain. What role will religion play? How should Islamic principles and goals be rethought? Can a sterile, polarizing debate between Islamism and secularism be avoided?Avoiding both naive confidence and conspiratorial paranoia, Ramadan voices a tentative optimism. If a true civil society can be established, he argues, this moment's fragile hope will live

Radical reform : Islamic ethics and liberation by Tariq Ramadan( Book )

31 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and German and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tariq Ramadan has emerged as one of the foremost voices of reformist Islam in the West, notable for urging his fellow Muslims to participate fully in the civil life of the Western societies in which they live. In this new book, Ramadan addresses Muslim societies and communities everywhere with a bold call for radical reform. He challenges those who argue defensively that reform is a dangerous and foreign deviation, and a betrayal of the faith. Authentic reform, he says, has always been grounded in Islam's textual sources, spiritual objectives, and intellectual traditions. But the reformist movements that are based on renewed reading of textual sources while using traditional methodologies and categories have achieved only adaptive responses to the crisis facing a globalizing world. Such readings, Ramadan argues, have reached the limits of their usefulness." "Ramadan calls for a radical reform that goes beyond adaptation to envision bold and creative solutions to transform the present and the future of our societies. This new approach interrogates the historically established sources, categories, higher objectives, tools, and methodologies of Islamic law and jurisprudence, and the authority this traditional geography of knowledge has granted to textual scholars. He proposes a new geography that redefines the sources and the spiritual and ethical objectives of the law, creating room for the authority of scholars of the social and hard sciences. This will equip this transformative reform with the spiritual, ethical, social, and scientific knowledge necessary to address contemporary challenges. Ramadan argues that radical reform demands not only the equal contributions of scholars of both the text and the context but also the critical engagement and creative imagination of the Muslim masses."--Jacket

Freedom of Expression Must Include the License to Offend: A Debate( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As valued as it is, the principle of free speech through which everyone can have their say is an especially slippery slope as populations grow more pluralistic and the desire to get along creates pressure to curtail any expression that may potentially insult some portion of the people. Must freedom of expression include the license to offend? That is the question in this Oxford Union-style debate as panelists make their case. Speakers for the motion bring up the pernicious effects of censorship, the suppression of healthy debate, and repressiveness that can lead to authoritarianism, while those against speak of freedom of speech as a means to an end rooted in a particular place and time rather than as an ideal and stress the value to society of outlawing expression such as child pornography

Islam, the West and the challenges of modernity by Tariq Ramadan( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tariq Ramadan attempts to demonstrate, using sources which draw upon Islamic thought and civilization, that Muslims can respond to contemporary challenges of modernity without betraying their identity. The book argues that Muslims, nurished by their own points of reference, can approach the modern epoch by adopting a specific social, political, and economic model that is linked to ethical values, a sense of finalities and spirituality. Rather than a modernism that tends to impose Westernization, it is a modernity that admits to the pluralism of civilizations, religions, and cultures.

The Arab awakening : Islam and the new Middle East by Tariq Ramadan( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tariq Ramadan is one of the most acclaimed figures in the analysis of Islam and its political dimensions today. In "The Arab Awakening" he explores the opportunities and challenges across North Africa and the Middle East, as they look to create new, more open societies. He asks: Can Muslim countries bring together Islam, pluralism and democracy without betraying their identity? Will the Arab world be able to reclaim its memory to reinvent education, women's rights, social justice, economic growth and the fight against corruption? Can this emancipation be envisioned with Islam, experienced not as a straitjacket, but as an ethical and cultural wealth? Arguing that the debate cannot be reduced to a confrontation between two approaches - the modern and secular versus the traditional and Islamic - Ramadan demonstrates that not only are both of these routes in crisis, but that the Arab world has an historic opportunity: to stop blaming the West, to jettison its victim status and to create a truly new dynamic. Tariq Ramadan offers up a challenge to the Middle East: What enduring legacy will you produce, from the historic moment of the Arab Spring?
Aux sources du renouveau musulman : d'al-Afghānī à Ḥassan al-Bannā un siècle de réformisme islamique by Tariq Ramadan( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in French and Spanish and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La thèse fondamentale de cette recherche est d'analyser comment et sur quelles bases s'est élaborée la pensée réformiste contemporaine à la fin du XIXe siècle. Dans la seconde partie, il s'est agi de montrer en quoi la pensée de Hassan al-Banna a été influencée par cette tradition et en quoi elle se rattache fondamentalement à elle. L'intuition fondamentale est que c'est la dimension avant tout sociale qui va prévaloir dans l'idée du projet d'une "société islamique". Avec la mort de Hassan al-Banna et la répression politique, les données changent et la posture politique est forcément plus conflictuelle et en confrontation directe avec le pouvoir. Avec Sayyed Qutb, le discours s'ancre dans la mise en évidence de l'altérité avec l'Occident et la revendication du "retour à l'islam" est surtout liée, et de façon clairement différente d'al-Banna, à la question du pouvoir et de l'Etat
