Elijah Muhammad and Islam by Herbert Berg( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elijah Muhammad is arguably the most significant figure in the history of Islam in the United States. Successor to W.D. Fard, the founder of the Nation of Islam, and a mentor to Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad led the Nation of Islam for over forty years. In Elijah Muhammad and Islam, Herbert Berg focuses on Elijah Muhammad's religiosity, which is frequently brought into question as the authenticity of the Nation of Islam as "truly Islamic" remains hotly debated. To better comprehend this powerful and controversial figure, Berg contextualizes Elijah Muhammad and his religious approach within the larger Islamic tradition, exploring his use of the Qu'ran, his interpretation of Islam, and his relationships with other Muslims
The development of exegesis in early Islam : the authenticity of Muslim literature from the formative period by Herbert Berg( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study provides the first extensive survey and analysis of Western debates over the authenticity of hadiths and early tafsir." "It argues that the differences between sceptical and more sanguine scholars result from their presuppositions, which then dictate their methods and conclusions. The comparison of the stylistic profile of Ibn Abbas' exegesis at various levels of transmission suggests that exegetical hadiths are no more reliable than any other genre of hadiths."--BOOK JACKET

New perspectives on the Nation of Islam by Dawn-Marie Gibson( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Perspectives on the Nation of Islam" contributes to the ongoing dialogue about the nature and influence of the Nation of Islam (NOI), bringing fresh insights to areas that have previously been overlooked in the scholarship of Elijah Muhammad's NOI, the Imam W.D. Mohammed community and Louis Farrakhan's Resurrected NOI. Bringing together contributions that explore the formation, practices, and influence of the NOI, this volume problematizes the history of the movement, its theology, and relationships with other religious movements. Contributors offer a range of diverse perspectives, making connections between the ideology of the NOI and gender, dietary restrictions and foodways, the internationalization of the movement, and the civil rights movement. This book provides a state-of-the-art overview of current scholarship on the Nation of Islam, and will be relevant to scholars of American religion and history, Islamic studies, and African American Studies
