Synopsis

As a minority religion in a predominantly Christian country, America's Muslims face many difficulties - lack of understanding of their cultural traditions by the majority of their fellow citizens, threats to their civil liberties based on their beliefs and ethnicity, and challenges to retaining a Muslim identity within their community. Muslims in the United States clarifies this complex situation by explaining for a non-Muslim audience the basic teachings and practices of Islam, the history of Islam in the United States, and a discussion of how and where Muslims live in this country. The volume concludes with a discussion of the problems that Muslims have adjusting to American culture, and a description from the Muslim perspective of 9/11 and its aftermath. Muslims in the United States provides an objective overview of what it's like to live as a Muslim in the United States:; Includes a history of Islam in America and a summary of what is known about the diversity of the Muslim population; Examines the centrality of faith for the Muslims of the United States; Analyzes the importance of women and the family; Probes the troubles that Muslims have endured after 9/11
