An American imam offers answers for today's toughest questions about Islam, and a vision for a  reconciliation between Islam and the West.

One of the pressing questions of our time is what went wrong in the relationship between Muslims and the West. Continuing global violence in the name of Islam reflects the deepest fears by certain Muslim factions of Western political, cultural, and economic encroachment. The solution to the current antagonism requires finding common ground upon which to build mutual respect and understanding. Who better to offer such an analysis than an American imam, someone with a foot in each world and the tools to examine the common roots of both Western and Muslim cultures; someone to explain to the non-Islamic West not just what went wrong with Islam, but what's right with Islam.

Focused on finding solutions, not on determining fault, this is ultimately a hopeful, inspiring book. What's Right with Islam systematically lays out the reasons for the current dissonance between these cultures and offers a foundation and plan for improved relations. Wide-ranging in scope, What's Right with Islam elaborates in satisfying detail a vision for a Muslim world that can eventually embrace its own distinctive forms of democracy and capitalism, aspiring to a new Cordoba - a time when Jews, Christians, Muslims, and all other faith traditions will live together in peace and prosperity.

A fair apologetic, but weak when the big issues like women are raised. The vast complexity is simply glossed over as though it needs no real discussion. Disappointing over-all.more
Although somewhat littered with absurdity there is plenty of interest in this book, the historical references are well considered and the push for dialogue is well proposed. I found the suggestion that should the U.S. take responsibility for solving a few minor world conflicts (such as the Israel/Palestine, Chechen/Russian and India/Pakistan problems), along with educating their masses, the Muslim world would begin to see them differently, simply ridiculous. I did find the insight into Sharia and other aspects of Islam a very interesting read. Some of the parallels between the evolution of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish religions in America and where American Muslims are currently were a little far fetched, however offered some food for thought.more
Written to fool fools into thinking islam is a peaceful "religion." allah is known to be a liar, approve of adultery, murder, rape and pedophilia, in other words, allah was made up by the false prophet, the brain damaged, mo-ham-mad, and described in his fictional work, the qur'an, to justify his evil proclivities.more
