4 A Dictionary of Muslim Names

Salahuddin Ahmed

Hurst & Company, London, UK, 1850653577 / 9781850653578, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
The resurgence and revitalisation of Mulsim culture have created a growing interest in the sudy of Muslim names. Throughout the world Muslims share similar names, be they in the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, South-East Asia or new migrants in the West. And it should not be forgotten that the first thing Allah taught Adam was names. The predominant language in Muslim names is Arabic, followed by Persian (Farsi), the two major languages which transmitted Muslim culture in its early stages and later expansion. An important source of Mulsim names consists of the ninety-nine attributes of Allah mentioned in the Qur'an and the hadith. According to Islamic belief, the relationship between man and his Creator is that of servant and master, and therefore a Muslim feels gratified to be named as a servant of one of the attributes of Allah. The purpose of this dictionary is to give the meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage of the words, Arabic or Persian, which form parts of Muslim names. By way of illustration, it gives references to Muslims who left their mark on history in different ages, in different fields, and in various parts of the world. Where appropriate, The Qur'an is cited. Therefore it is not merely a compilation of Mulsim names but a reference work pertaining to the broad field of Islam. For most people, a name appears more significant when it is identified as having been borne by an Imam, a Khalifa, a Mujahid (fighter for the cause of Islam), a Sultan, a saint, an author or a jurist who shaped the history of Islam. Many Muslims with names that comprise Arabic or Persian words are unaware of their meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage, particularly if they are unfamiliar with these languages. It is important for parents and guardians to devote time to selecting suitable names for children by consulting authentic books on manes and re-checking them from standard Arabic-English and/or Perian-English dictionaries. This dictionary simplifies this process. Contents Introduction Male Names Female Names Bibliography. Printed Pages: 367. 027166

8 An Introduction to Islamic Law

Wael B. Hallaq

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0521127947 / 9780521127943, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
The study of Islamic law can be a forbidding prospect for those entering the field for the first time. Wael Hallaq, a leading scholar and practitioner of Islamic law, guides students through the intricacies of the subject in this absorbing introduction. The first half of the book is devoted to a discussion of Islamic law in its pre-modern natural habitat. The second part explains how the law was transformed and ultimately dismantled during the colonial period. In the final chapters, the author charts recent developments and the struggles of the Islamists to negotiate changes which have seen the law emerge as a primarily textual entity focused on fixed punishments and ritual requirements. The book, which includes a chronology, a glossary of key terms, and lists of further reading, will be the first stop for those who wish to understand the fundamentals of Islamic law, its practices and history. Contents Introduction Part I. Tradition and Continuity: 1. Who’s who in the Shari‘a 2. The law: how is it found? 3. The legal schools 4. Jurists, legal education and politics 5. Shari‘a’s society 6. Pre-modern governance: the circle of justice Part II. Modernity and Ruptures: 7. Colonizing the Muslim world and its Shari‘a 8. Modernizing the law in the age of nation states 9.

12 Breaking the Monolith: Essays, Articles and Columns on Islam, India, Terror and Other Things That Annoy Me

Ziauddin Sardar

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2008, 8188861057 / 9788188861057, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 140 x 220 Mm 
Ziauddin Sardar is one of the world’s leading Muslim intellectuals and author of more than forty books on science, religion and contemporary culture. Breaking the Monolith, a collection of his essays and articles published in western journals, involves issues of terrorism and representation, the arrogance of American power, the dumbing power of mass culture, and of monolithic thought, in all its guises, from East and West. And, inevitably, they deal with the loss of innocence, with Islam and South Asia, and the collective failure of imagination. Part One, The Sphere of Islam sets the parameters. We cannot ignore a brutal fact, Sardar says: ”In the war on terror that shrouds the globe, the terrorists are Muslim which gives credence to that oft-repeated clich? ‘all Muslims are not terrorists, but all terrorists happen to be Muslims?. What is the picture of Islam in the common mind? ?The spectre of al-Qaeda, its savagery and declared intentions to world domination; Taliban and their barbarity; suicide bombers fighting ‘a jihad? the mad Mullah hell-bent on seizing power and using all means to justify his ends; colonels and generals legitimizing their illegitimate political authority to create an Islamic state? The picture that emerges is a creed knee-deep in obscurantism and terrorism, decay and darkness, with violence and extremism as its hallmarks. Why has Islam passed its “sell-by?date, Sardar asks? “Because it has been kept ‘refrigerated?for too long. And I say this as a believer! It seems to me that believers have become empty vessels who accept anything that is poured into them by religious scholars in the name of Islam, without question and without criticism? If Islam is out of sync with the contemporary world, America rides roughshod because of its brutal power, reinforced by neoliberal novelists and writers who see American free liberalism as the best of all possible worlds. The world is now too complex, too interconnected, too globalised to be divided into ‘black?and ‘white? ’the abode of Islam?and ‘the abode of unbelief? The overall message is break the monolith wherever it comes from. Contents Introduction Part One: The Sphere of Islam Part Two: The Circumference of Representation Part Three: The Circle of Terror Part Four: The Parameters of Culture Part Five: The Tangents of South Asian Experience Part Six: Interviews Epilogue Acknowledgements.

14 Contesting the Saudi State: Islamic Voices from a New Generation

Madawi al-Rasheed

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0521858364 / 9780521858366, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 228 x 152 Mm 
The terms Wahhabi or Salafi are seen as interchangeable and frequently misunderstood by outsiders. However, as Madawi al-Rasheed explains in a fascinating exploration of Saudi Arabia in the twenty-first century, even Saudis do not agree on their meaning. Under the influence of mass education, printing, new communication technology, and global media, they are forming their own conclusions and debating religion and politics in traditional and novel venues, often violating official taboos and the conservative values of the Saudi society. Drawing on classical religious sources, contemporary readings and interviews, Al-Rasheed presents an ethnography of consent and contest, exploring the fluidity of the boundaries between the religious and political. Bridging the gap between text and context, the author also examines how states and citizens manipulate religious discourse for purely political ends, and how this manipulation generates unpredictable reactions whose control escapes those who initiated them. ?A groundbreaking analysis of religious and political debate in Saudi Arabia after 9/11 ?Explains the rise of a radical Islamist movement in Saudi Arabia ?Considers Bin Laden’s legacy and Saudi attitudes towards its ‘favourite son? Contents Glossary; Maps; Introduction; 1. Consenting subjects: official Wahhabi religio-political discourse; 2. Re-enchanting politics: Sahwis from contestation to co-optation; 3. Struggling for the way of God abroad: from localism to transnationalism; 4. Struggling for the way of God at home: the politics and poetics of jihad; 5. Debating Salafis: Lewis Atiyat Allah and the jihad obligation; 6. Searching for the unmediated word of God; Conclusion; Notes; Bibliography; Index. Printed Pages: 332 with 1 map. 028068

20 Dictionary of Islam: Being a cyclopaedia of the doctrines, rites, ceremonies and customs, together with the technical and theological terms of the Muhammadan Religion

Thomas Patrick Hughes

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1999, 81-215-0706-5 / 9788121507066, Reprint, Cloth, New, New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Thomas Patrick Hughes' Dictionary of Islam has been compiled with a view to give a concise account of the doctrines and customs of the Muhammadan religion together with the technical and theological terms. While it takes into account the beliefs of the numerous sects of the Muslims, the Dictionary is for the most part an exposition of the opinions of the Sunni sect. However, the author has given very special attention to the Wahhabis who, according to him, represents the earliest teachings of the Muslim faith. While the Dictionary does not purport to be a biographical dictionary, the author has also given short biographical notices of persons connected with the religious dogmas and ceremonies. A handy reference work, the Dictionary of Islam is indispensable for all those engaged in the study of Islam. Covering a wide range of subjects, the Dictionary is also profusely illustrated with excellent drawings and has an index at the end of the work. Printed Pages: 760. 023693

31 Following Muhammad: Rethinking Islam in the Contemporary World

Carl W. Ernst

Yoda Press, New Delhi, India, 8190227297 / 9788190227292, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
Making a radical departure from the recently proliferating publications on Islam—journalist exposés on terrorist intrigues and solemn expositions on the clash of civilizations - renowned Islamicist Carl Ernst offers in this book a sympathetic yet reasoned and analytical view of the Islamic religious tradition and the contemporary issues that Muslims face. He introduces the reader to the profound spiritual and intellectual resources of Islam while clarifying debate and highlighting diversity within the tradition. Writing from within the framework of religious studies and the historical context he describes how Protestant definitions of religion and anti-Muslim prejudice have affected views of Islam in Europe and America. He also discusses the contemporary importance of Islam in both its traditional settings and its new locations and provides a context for understanding extremist movements like fundamentalism. Ernst concludes with an overview of critical debates on important contemporary issues such as gender and veiling, state politics, and science and religion. Revealing the human face of Islam, this timely and important volume aims at stimulating conversation between Muslims and non-Muslims in a world that they have commonly inherited. Contents Preface 1. Islam in the Eyes of the West 2. Approaching Islam in Terms of Religion 3. The Sacred Sources of Islam 4. Ethics and Life in the World 5. Spirituality in Practice 6.

32 Forbidding Wrong in Islam: An Introduction

Michael Cook

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2003, 0-521-53602-2 / 9780521536028, Paperback, New, 
Michael Cook’s magisterial study in Islamic ethics, Commanding Right and Forbidding Wrong in Islamic Thought, was published to much acclaim in 2001. It was described by one reviewer as a masterpiece. In that book, the author reflected on the Islamic injunction, incumbent on every Muslim, to forbid wrongdoing. The present book is a short, accessible survey of the same material. Using anecdotes and stories from Islamic sources to illustrate the argument, Cook unravels the complexities of the subject. Moving backwards and forwards through time, he demonstrates how the past informs the present. By the end, the reader will be familiar with a colourful array of characters from Islamic history ranging from the celebrated thinker Ghazzali, to the caliph Harun al-Rashid, to the Ayatollah Khumayni. The book educates and entertains - at its heart, however, is an important message about the Islamic tradition, its values, and the relevance of those values today. Contents 1. Introduction; 2.

38 Hindu Views and Ways of Hindu-Muslim Interface: An Anthropological Assessment

Agehananda Bharati

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1981, 81-215-0182-2 / 9788121501828, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book is the closest to a modern, critical, interdisciplinary answer to the oft-asked question "What is Hinduism?" The author does not claim to answer this question which he does not think can be answered unequivocally. Yet in this terse, succinct presentation something close to such answer has been attempted. The author analyzes both Hindu thought and Hindu behaviour as he approaches Hinduism both textually and contextually, as an indologist and a cultural anthropologist. He presents the average rural and urban Hindu views of the tradition rather than that of an intellectual or sacerdotal elite, and he introduces work-a-day people's way of acting as Hindus rather than the rituals or the meditations of highly tutored specialists, of the woman and the man in the field or in the office rather than of the purohita or shastri in the Vishvanath or Meenakshi temples. Bharati also clarifies a number of confusions which have become part of modernized Hindus' notions about ritual, caste, 'superstition' and other themes which the Hindu Renaissance of the last ten decades has generated. In order to illuminate the links between popular and learned Hinduism which includes a powerful esoteric segment, the author explains the perennially mystifying problem of bhakti vs. jnana, pivotally exemplified by Adisamkaracarya to whose order the author also belongs. When the late Pt. Nehru insisted that India's was a composite rather than a Hindu culture, he put his finger on an important fact: that one cannot sensible and sensitively talk about Hindu action without heeding the interface between Hinduism and Islam which has indeed become part of modern Hinduism, as it is indeed for South Asian Islam.

History of the Islamic Peoples, Carl Brockelmann, translated by Joel Carmichael and Moshe Perimann
40 History of the Islamic Peoples

Carl Brockelmann, translated by Joel Carmichael and Moshe Perimann

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1995, 81-215-0694-8 / 9788121506946, First Indian Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This history covers the time from pre-Islamic Arabia to 1939 and the whole stretch of Islamic settlement from Morocco in the West to China in the East, and from the Mongols in the North to the Islamized tribes of Central Africa. In covering so large a subject it is no small feat to have produced a work which can be wholeheartedly recommended to Islam. The author has seen clearly the salient points in the long story of the spread and development of Islam, and has woven his account around these points in a way that lets the reader see a clear picture of each epoch in advance. In its historical sense, its mastery of the results and clarity of presentation, it is infinitely superior to any of the more recent attempts. The author has always endeavoured, and has very generally succeeded, in giving an impartial judgment on points where the opinions of scholars differ sharply. Printed Pages: 600 with 8 maps. 019801

41 History of the Rise of Mahomedan Power in India till the Year A.D. 1612, 4 Vols.

Mahomed Kasim Ferishta; Translated from the Original Persian By John Briggs

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1981, 81-7069-122-2 / 9788170691228, Reprint, Hard Cover, New, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Mahomed Kasim Shah Ferishta, a Persian historian was born at Astrabad on the borders of Caspian Sea in 1570 AD. He came to Bijapur in 1589 and spent remainder of his life under the immediate protection of Ibrahim Adil Shah II, who commissioned him to write the general history of the Mahomedans in India. Ferishta presented the first draft of his history to Ibrahim Adil Shah in 1606 AD and spent the rest of his life in revising it. In the introduction of his work he gave a summary of the Mahomedan Conquest, and also of the Arab conquest of the Indian Borderlands, Ferishta is reputed as one of the most trustworthy of oriental historians. His work has come to be regarded as a classic and still maintains a high place as an authority. The author, Ferishta is more divested to the feel of massacres of the defenceless Hindus than any other author of his own religious creed. Ferishta has brought more brightness to the general history of the Mahomedans in India. The date of his death is altogether unknown. Briggs supposes that it occurred in 1612 AD making him only forty one years of age. Printed Pages: 1588. 032973

42 iMuslims: Rewriting the House of Islam

Gary R. Blunt

Hurst & Company, London, UK, 1850659516 / 9781850659518, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 145 x 225 Mm 
The internet has profoundly shaped how Muslims perceive Islam, and how Islamic societies and networks are evolving within the twenty-first century. While these electronic interfaces appear new and innovative in terms of how the media is applied, much of their content has a basis in classical Islamic concepts, with an historical resonance that can be traced back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad. i-Muslims explores how these transformations and influences play out in diverse cyber Islamic environments, and how they are responding to shifts in technology and society. The author discusses how, in some contexts, the application of the internet has had an overarching transformational effect on how Muslims practise Islam, how forms of Islam are represented to the wider world, and how Muslim societies perceive themselves and their peers. Cyber Islamic environments have exposed Muslims to radical and new influences beyond the traditional spheres of knowledge and authority, including through social networking sites and the blogosphere. Gary Bunt also explores how the internet has dramatically influenced jihad-oriented campaigns by networks such as al-Qaeda, and how it has revolutionized the propagation of new forms of Islamic activism and radicalization. He concludes by determining the way forward for the articulation of diverse understandings of Islam online, and how Muslim networks will be further shaped through their relationships with the internet.

This is followed by a thorough analysis of Western political, economic and social ideas and institutions on Islam and the resultant movements, both reactionary and progressive.

Indian Muslims, M. Mujeeb
45 Indian Muslims

M. Mujeeb

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2003, 81-215-0027-3 / 9788121500272, Reprint, Cloth, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This is an attempt to portray the life of Indian Muslims in all its aspects, beginning with the advent of the Muslim and ending with the present day. In it Indian Muslim history has been divided into three phases-early, middle and modern-and the various aspects of life and activity have been discussed under orthodoxy, statesmanship and administration, religious thought, Sufism, poets and writers, architecture and art, and social life. As the purpose of the book is to help in understanding rather than to provide all the information available, only typical and significant ideas and personalities are discussed. Many questions are asked and discussed in the book which have so far been avoided or ignored. Is it possible to define the Indian Muslim? Are the Indian Muslims now, and have they ever been a homogenous community? Have the Indian Muslim, individually or collectively, possessed any recognized rights to judge and oppose the ruler on moral or religious grounds? If they have not, could the ruler claim to represent the Muslims as a religious community? What was, in fact, the status and the power of the official representatives of institutional religion? Were there any tensions within the Indian Muslim community, and if there were, what was their effect on the patterns of thought and behaviour? What was the nature and influence of the Sufis, and what were the transformations which occurred within Sufism in course of time? What was the character and the range of the relationships between Indian Muslims and the Hindus, and the forms in which they influenced each other? What was the Indian Muslim contribution to the development of literature, architecture and the minor arts, to the refinement of taste, to creation of a common culture, and from where did they derive the stimulus to make this contribution? This is the first comprehensive and objective sociological study of the Indian Muslim, and is written by one who has lived through the political and social conflicts of twentieth century India and is taking an active part in the emotional integration of the Indian people.

46 Islam and Healing: Loss and Recovery of an Indo-Muslim Medical Tradition

Seema Alavi

Permanent Black, New Delhi, India, 2007, 8178241951 / 9788178241951, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Indo-Muslim medicine—or the Unani tradition—developed in South Asia alongside Mughal political culture. While it healed the body, it also had a profound bearing on the social fabric of the region. Seema Alavi’s book shows the nature and extent of this Islamic healing tradition’s interaction with Indian society and politics from roughly 1600 to 1900. Drawing on Persian texts for the pre-colonial phase, Alavi then moves beyond the standard colonial archive to deploy unused Urdu texts, pamphlets, local newspapers, and private family records. The result is a substantial revision of the existing historiography of Indian Islam’s encounter with Western medicine. This book represents, in fact, the first major effort at telling the story of an Islamic healing tradition and its subsequent transformation by locating it within both pre-colonial and colonial time frames. Alavi shows precisely how, in the period of high colonialism, established practitioners kept their tradition alive. Their struggles to preserve and recast the Mughal legacy, control knowledge, and consolidate doctrinaire languages of power when confronting print culture and Western education are compellingly documented and analysed. Without disprivileging the state, she demonstrates how an in-house struggle for hegemony can be as potent as external power during processes that define medical, social, and national modernity. In the present context, where West-dominant globalization demonizes both Islam and cultural alternatives, the implications of this book are profound. A pioneering work on social and medical history, it will interest all historians, students of Islam’s interaction with the West, alternative modernities, and the ancient as well as contemporary struggle of the local against the global.

47 Islam and the Moral Economy: The Challenge of Capitalism

How do modern Muslims adapt their traditions to engage with today's world? Charles Tripp's erudite and incisive book considers one of the most significant challenges faced by Muslims over the last sixty years: the challenge of capitalism. By reference to the works of noted Muslim scholars, the author shows how, faced by this challenge, these intellectuals devised a range of strategies which have enabled Muslims to remain true to their faith, whilst engaging effectively with a world not of their own making. The work is framed around the development of their ideas on Islamic socialism, economics and the rationale for Islamic banking. While some Muslims have resorted to confrontation or insularity to cope with the challenges of modernity, most have aspired to innovation and ingenuity in the search for compromise and interaction with global capitalism in the twenty-first century. ?Sophisticated treatment of the diverse Muslim views of capitalism ?Written by a highly regarded political scientist and scholar of the Middle East ?A book for policymakers, journalists, professionals, students, all those looking for a clearer and more in-depth study of Islam and its interaction with the West Contents 1. The 'social problem'; 2. Islamic social critics; 3. Islamic socialism; 4. Islamic economics and Islamic banks; 5. Repertoires of resistance: Islamic anti-capitalism; Conclusion; Bibliography.
