Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The Salafi are a conservative Muslim sect misunderstood by most Americans, and even many Muslims. The New York Times' first reference to Salafis as a distinct group appears in 1979 after a band of armed men seized control of the Great Mosque in Mecca. After 1979, there is not another mention of Salafis in the Times until 2000, in an article on links between Yemeni radicals and Osama Bin Ladin. In 2013, an article appeared in USA Today labeling Salafis as Sunni Islam's "most radical sect" and declaring them "the most anti-Western" of any Islamist group. Knight--an acclaimed writer who has explored his own evolving religious beliefs in a range of novels, memoirs and essays--uses this mislabeling as yet another opportunity to engage those corners of Islamic tradition that others might dismiss as absurd or dangerous. "If it has been in my job description over the past decade to take seriously groups and thinkers who are almost never taken seriously," he says, "I needed to look at the despised and ridiculed Salafiyya." Why I am Salafi is a tour inside the continuum of the Muslim religion -illustrating why terms like orthodox or progressive, Sufi or Salafi cover such wide ground they cannot possibly contain their respective communities. But it is also the story of Knight's own complex religious journey: one that has taken him to from praying in a mosque in Islamabad to drinking dimeythyltryptamine laced tea in the desert; to briefly identifying as a "Five Percenter," a marginalized group that view themselves as gods and rejects religious authority all together. Ironically, moving this journey of faith forward brings Knight back to his teens, a time when his religious questioning began, and he realizes, a time when he most identified as Salafi.
