Youth work and Islam : a leap of faith for young people by Brian Belton( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Youth Work and Islam provides an eclectic focus, reflecting it duel inspirations of its title. It considers how youth work can be informed by Islam but at the same time looks at how practice can be pertinent to young Muslims, their community and relationship with wider society. In this book Sadek Hamid and Brian Belton bring together a range of thinkers and practitioners who exemplify and analyse this situation. This not only produces much more than a straightforward view of informed practice, it also presents a broad and humane understanding of the character and possibilities of youth work over a broad perspective. Centrally, while the work demonstrates how Islam and Muslims have contributed to the development of youth work, it also puts forward ideas and standpoints that demonstrate how Islam can continue to inform practice, add to its humanitarian ethos and even make our work with young people in general more effective. As such, Youth Work and Islam is an essential part of any youth worker's reading, working within and beyond Muslim contexts. It is also a useful and readable text for social workers, teachers, police officers, clerics, medical professional and anyone wanting a more informed understanding of how faith perspectives can inform and refresh attitudes, approaches and enhance work with individuals, groups and communities."--Publisher's website
Political Muslims : understanding youth resistance in a global context( )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Political Muslims," Abbas, Hamid, and their contributors seek to provide a new perspective on Muslim youth, presenting them as agents of creative social change--as emerging adults who are participating in cultural, organizational, community, and socially oriented projects to positively influence socio-political transformation in response to the everyday challenges they face. Each case study brings the reader to a new geographic location, providing original contributions on how a new generation of Muslim youth are engaging in issues relating to their faith, gender, identity, community, social injustice, and globalization, and confronting social change and the negative impacts of Islamophobia and radicalization
Sufis, Salafis and Islamists : the contested ground of British Islamic activism by Sadek Hamid( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The terms 'Islamism', 'Salafism' and 'Jihadism' have acquired common currency in recent years, often being interchanged and applied to describe various forms of Muslim religiosity considered undesirable. But what do these terms mean? Why do Muslim religious conservatism and radicalisation appear to be on the rise in the UK? And what long-term impact could this have on British society? In this path-breaking study, Sadek Hamid explores the impact of three globally influential religious paradigms on the faith identity formation of British Muslims. The author traces the unwritten story of the evolution of Sufi, Salafi and Islamist activism in Britain, focusing on the legacies of the Young Muslims UK, Hizb ut-Tahrir, Salafi-oriented trends and the neo-Sufi 'Traditional Islam' network. Hamid explains how they participate in collective faith-based activism, develop solidarities with transnational political struggles and differentiate claims over religious authenticity, scholarly authority and group priorities. He also illustrates how these movements gained and lost support, related to foreign ideologies and developed models of British Muslim identity. Sufis, Salafis and Islamists offers a compelling account of the complexity that underlies reductionist media narratives of Islamic activism in the UK. It is essential reading for scholars and students of Muslims in Britain, and an important point of reference for research on Islamic communities in other Western societies
British Muslims : new directions in Islamic thought, creativity and activism by Philip Lewis( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new generation of Muslims - activists, academics, religious scholars and professionals - are drawing on contemporary reformist thinking emerging from outside their parents' or grandparents' tradition and are using this to inform their activism. This positive new thinking is traced as it impacts and shapes the burgeoning field of Muslim women's activism, the formation of religious leaders, what is to count as 'Muslim politics', the dynamics of de-radicalisation and what has been dubbed the 'New Muslim Cool' in music, fashion and culture. A collaboration between two academics, one Muslim and one not, the book gives a distinctive take on understanding Islam and Muslims in Britain today. --Back cover

Young British muslims. Between rhetoric and real lives by Sadek Hamid( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young British Muslims continue to generate strong interest. However, much of this interest is framed in negative terms that tends to associate them with criminality, religious extremism or terrorism. Focusing instead on other aspects of being young, Muslim and British, this book takes a multidisciplinary approach that seeks to 'normalise' the subjects and focus on their everyday lived realities. Structured into three sections, the collection begins by contextualising the study of young British Muslims, before addressing the sensitive social issues highlighted in the media and finally focusing on a variety of case studies which investigate the previously unexplored lived experiences of these young people. With contributions from scholars of religion, media and criminology, as well as current and former practitioners within youth and social work contexts, this book will appeal to scholars who have an interest in the fastest growing, most profiled minority demographic in the UK
