Synopsis

In this book Muslims, men and women alike, speak from the heart about what they believe and how they live. The central tenets of Islam are put forward by doctors, engineers, politicians, bankers and carpenters, as well as by theologians. Islam has a billion followers. The beliefs of Islam, like those of the other great religions, must be taken seriously if we wish to understand the world in which we live. What do followers of the Islamic tradition have to say about family life, money, education, racial equality and the ecology of our planet? Muslim readers of earlier editions of The Muslim Mind welcomed the Christian author who had portrayed their faith with fairness and candor. The sincere answers to her inquiries given by many Muslims afford a vivid insight into the spirit and practice of Islam.

Charis Waddy was born in Australia, and she grew up in Jerusalem in the years that followed World War I. The tensions of that period, and the common heritage of the monotheistic faiths that is manifest in that city, helped to shape her outlook on the world. She was the first woman to study Oriental Languages (Arabic and Hebrew) at Oxford University. For her doctorate at London University she specialized in the history of the Crusades, particularly on the Arab side. She is the author of Baalbec Caravans, Women in Muslim History, and numerous articles on Islamic civilization and its scientific contributions to the world. In March 1990, she was decorated by the government of Pakistan with the Sitara-i-Imtiaz (the Star of Excellence).
