Description :

Since the Second World War, there has been a significant migration of Muslims to countries in the Western world. Muslims in non-Muslim Lands traces the process by which these migrants arrived in Western Europe-in particular Britain-and explains how the community developed its faith identity through three particular stances: assimilation, isolation and integration.

The findings argue that the assumption that Islam causes Muslims to isolate from the indigenous population and form ‘a state within a state’ is false, and that Islamic law actually gives Muslims confidence and the ability to integrate within the wider society.

The theological view that all non-Muslim lands are dar al-harb (domain of war) is challenged, and the study shows that the traditional interpretive model of Islamic Law inherently possesses the flexibility and applicability to take into consideration minority-status of Muslims in Britain. Muslims in Non-Muslim Lands focuses on Islamic Law as interpreted by the Hanafī Law school and highlights in detail the multi-pronged and robust nature of its legal theory and subsequent application.

What is ground-breaking about Muslims in Non-Muslim Lands is that it illustrates the ability of Hanafī Law to deal with contemporary issues in a wide range of subjects. It also provides Muslims with ways of Islamically resolving medical, financial and political concerns. The study concludes that Islamic Law can facilitate the integration of Muslim minorities within secular societies while allowing them to still remain true to their faith.
