  • Critical Muslim | 27 | Beauty

  • How do we identify and judge beauty? Does it distract us from more pressing questions and issues? Is beauty the handmaiden of privilege? Or can it be found in everyday, ordinary things? Whatever happened to beauty in contemporary Islam? Do Muslims have a inkling of what beauty is and why is it significant? This issue of Critical Muslim looks at beauty from a number of perspectives -- from beauty in the Qur'an and the Beautiful Divine Names to racism and the beauty industry, politics of fashion, calligraphy, plastic surgery, female wrestling, Muslim beauty contests and the male and female gaze.
  • Sea Without Shore, A Manual of the Sufi Path

  • Sea Without Shore is a practical manual for those travelling the path of Sufism or Islamic mysticism, which strives, in Junayd's words, "to separate the Beginninglessly Eternal from that which originates in time," in a word, to be with the Divine without any relation.
  • How can one lead a truly happy life? What are the differences between happiness, joy, gladness, contentment and pleasure?

  • In this concise and easy-to-read book, noted philosopher and Islamic scholar, Prince Ghazi of Jordan, reviews the classical philosophical and religious answers to these questions and then shows Islam s perspective on the issue based on the Qur an and saying of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW.) The answer is a surprising one to which everyone can relate.
  • And Muhammad Is His Messenger

  • This is the first book in English to deal with all aspects of the veneration of Prophet Muhammad. It is an expanded version of Schimmel’s Und Muhammad Ist Sein Prophet, originally published in German in 1981.
  • Critical Muslim | 26 | Gastronomy

  • What is halal? Does Islam have a particular flavour? Is culture transferred through gastronomy? In this issue we resist intoxication by wine and soberly sample the culinary delights of the Muslim world--then and now. By exploring the more obscure delicacies of international cuisine, we confront the underbelly of gluttony and ask why the Muslim world is so indulgently carnivorous. We go back to nature on an organic farm and consider whether going organic will save the world and promote the true spirit of Islam.
  • Critical Muslim | 28 | Narratives

  • How do we communicate meaning in the age of fake news? What is the difference between narrative and information; between ideology and political narrative; between ‘narrative fiction’ and a story? Will the narration continue forever? What is history and what is propaganda? What shall we do tonight? What might we believe tomorrow? We look at the past, present and future of narratives and tell a few tall tales ourselves.
