Peace And The Limits of War Transcending Classical Conception

Peace And The Limits of War
Transcending Classical Conception of Jihad
By Louay M. Safi
Paper Back 50 pages,
ISBN-13: 978-1565644021
Publishers, The International Institute of Islamic Thought

Islam is a religion of peace. This fact is borne by both Islamic teachings and the very name of “Islam.” Islam, on the other hand, permits its followers to resort to armed struggle to repel military aggression, and indeed urge them to fight oppression, brutality, and injustice. The Qur’anic term for such a struggle is jihad. Yet for many in the West, jihad is nothing less or more than a holy war, i.e. a war to enforce one’s religious beliefs on others. Is Islam a religion of peace, moderation, and tolerance, or is it one that directs its followers to kill infidels, encourages forced conversion, and intimidates the followers of other faiths? This monograph addresses this question

Louay M. Safi is a Syrian-American, a scholar of Islam and the Middle East, and an advocate of Arab and Muslim American rights. He published on such issues as social and political development, modernization, democracy, human rights, and Islam and Modernity. He is the author of 11 books and numerous papers, and speaker on questions of leadership, democracy, Islam and the Middle East.
