What Is an American Muslim?

Embracing Faith and Citizenship

Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im

  • Offers an argument for a secular state from an Islamic point of view
  • Shows that the relationship between religion and the state is the product of historical and contextual negotiation, rather than suggesting a categorical separation between the two
  • Clarifies and discusses the legal, political, sociological, and demographic context in which American Muslims can affirm their citizenship without diminishing or undermining their religious identity
