The Call of Islam

  (19 May 09)

Liberation theology, inter-religious solidarity, feminism, justice for people with AIDS.


Not words you will often hear associated with Islam. However, leading South African Muslim Farid Esack has brought them together in his reflections on the Muslim role in the anti-apartheid struggle, and its relevance for today. His website includes articles on these issues, and more. It also has information about his books, including “On Being a Muslim”, and the excellent “Qur’an, Liberation and Pluralism”.


Here’s a snippet: “I can use Islam and its text, the Qur’an, to re-enforce all my prejudices, to shed them or to re-work them.”
