American Muslims: The New Generation ePub download

Book Overview In my opinion Asma Gull Hasan's book (American Muslims: The New Generation)is by far the "most efficient" book ever written about Islam.

Asma Hassan calls herself a Muslim feminist cowgirl (she was raised in Pueblo, Colorado). Convinced that Muslim Americans are the victims of mistaken identity (our fellow citizens think all Muslims are terrorists and women-oppressors), Hassan breaks through the stereotypes and generalizations to talk about the religion and the believers she knows from the inside. In my opinion Asma Gull Hasan's book (American Muslims: The New Generation)is by far the "most efficient" book ever written about Islam. I feel this way because, I discovered this book three days after September 11, 2001.

During a time in America when Islam and Muslims were "under fire" by the media. Non-Muslims Americans can learn a great deal about Islam from this book. After reading this book it would be impossible for anyone to deny Islam and the peaceful message it delivers. This book covers the basic beliefs and practices of Muslims, as well as address and extinguish all stereotypes.

In this era of Islam-bashing, Hasan's book serves as an immensely important tool of tolerance. While some may disagree on Muslim doctrine, and others will be disappointed at how Hasan doesn't inflate their sense of Christian supremacy, "American Muslims" will provide countless people a very informative and enjoyable read. I'm going to be buying several copies and sending them to US soldiers in Iraq (via BooksforSoldiers.com), some of whom have been taught very racist/culturist attitudes - to get them in the mood to dominate the people. Sadly, some of our troops, and the private mercenaries of Dyncorp, believe the xenophobia of Kenneth Timmerman, Michael Savage and other hate-mongers.

Asma Gull Hasan provides a courageous antidote to the plague of bigotry.

One note on the issue of sexism in Islam - it's important to keep in mind that violence against women is epidemic the world over. "Ms. Magazine" is an important source of info on ugly facts like how over 25,000 women in the US become pregnant each year due to being raped. So, maltreatment of women is something American Christians need to address as well. Moreover, if we want to make things better for women in the Middle East, we could start by not conducting illegal invasions, by not building military bases to control oil resources, by not propping up dictators, and so forth. The state terror of America has a way of trickling down upon the women (and the children and the men) of the region. If Americans curtail the habits of domination in their country's foreign policy, women all over the world will be safer.

"World Pulse" magazine is an excellent resource for those interested in how wonderful women like Asma are transforming this troubled world.

This is the book I will need for my Religion class this semester. It appears to be an easy read and could be interesting; I have not used it yet.

I was in the bookstore one day and I was searching for a book on Islam. Thankfully, I came across Asma Gull Hasan's American Muslims. After reading it I thought, finally, a personal account from a strong, educated Muslim woman! So many stereotypes fill our culture with misconceptions about Muslims in general. Miss Hasan is brave for speaking out and destroying the myth that all Muslim women are oppressed and submissive. This is a must-read for anyone who is interested in the lives everyday American Muslims. She mixes humor, wit and intelligence to tell two stories-her own personal story as the daughter of Pakistani immigrants and the story of Islam in America. She proves that American values (tolerance, freedom and basic human rights) are perfectly compatible with Islamic values and in fact pre-date them by at least 1400 years! (Example: the Koran gave women many rights that American women didn't receive until the early 20th century.) She defines the differences between true Islam and the oppressive, PRE-Islamic practices in some Muslims countries. Islam is not the problem. Culture is the culprit. This book is crucial in these times of misunderstanding and cultural gaps and it is young women like Hasan who are willing to build bridges and show people the true goal of Islam-unity and compassion for all mankind.
Whatever
I know that Asma Gull Hasan means well in wanting to show Islam in the best light possible, but that doesn't make up for her glaring lack of knowledge. Judging from her remarks, she has never heard of the hadith, the collections of Muhammad's words and deeds, which are of paramount importance as a source of Islamic law and belief, and this in itself is a major failing. Her brief remarks about the Qur'an make me wonder if she has actually read it. The author demonstrates no knowledge whatever about shari'ah (Islamic law) or fiqh (the application of that law), which makes her pronouncements on various subjects from hijab to women's rights a sad joke from an Islamic standpoint. She is completely ignorant of the doctrine of abrogation (naskh), stating that some verses are superceded by verses revealed later. She waves away practices she doesn't like by saying that "in her view" they are wrong--but doesn't show that she has any idea why they came to be in the first place, or what specific justifications they may have. It is possible to critique such practices, but first one should know the reasons behind them! The book is heavy on shallow platitudes about Islam mouthed without any knowledge or understanding, coupled with an almost total lack of any solid Islamic knowledge.

Regretfully, this is not the definitive book on Young Americans and Islam, or even a liberalized American understanding of Islam; that title will have to wait for somebody with a deeper and fuller understanding of Islam.

Asma's American Muslims is an easy to read and interesting book that deals with the experiences of a Muslim girl in the Midwest. A fun book for both Muslims and non Muslims. Many Muslims in the U.S. would be able to relate to various stories in the book from how it is to order nonpork items from restaurants to dealing with people's misconceptions about Islam due to current world events, etc. I know that I did! However, I think she should have researched some of her Islam information better. I came across some topics that she said that are discussed in the Quran but are really part of the hadith, sayings of prophet Muhammad(pbuh)like the incident where Muslim's daily prayers were reduced from 50 to 5, etc.
