Islamic Charities and Islamic Humanism in Troubled Times

Jonathan Benthall

Published by Manchester University Press

Humanitarianism Key Debates and New Approaches MUP

This book is the fruit of twenty years' reflection on Islamic charities, both practically and as a key to understand the crisis in contemporary Islam. Part one reviews the current situation of Islamic charities from many different viewpoints. Part two expands the coverage to explore the potential for a twenty-first century global "Islamic humanism" devised by Muslims. This means addressing contentious topics such as religious toleration.
