Moving the Mountain: A New Vision of Islam in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, an open and honest clarion call inviting readers to a deeper understanding of the role of moderate Muslims in America and in the world.

Many know Imam Feisal as the man behind the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” an interfaith community center he is trying to build near the World Trade Center site. He is the go-to talking head every time something happens in the Arab world or with regard to Islam in general—from the aftermath of 9/11 to Congressman King’s hearings, from the Arab spring to the death of bin Laden. More important, however, he is a man of faith and a proud American.

As a moderate and modern Muslim, the Imam’s true beliefs are more liberal than conservative media would like us to think. For example, the Imam thought the death of bin Laden marked a turning point for Muslims, opening room for alternate, moderate voices that are closer to the true nature of Islam. He argues that orthodox Islam supports equal rights for women, religious tolerance and dialogue, and insists on the relevance of Shariah for democracy in America and for the revolutions in the Middle East.

Drawing on his personal experiences, the Imam speaks up on behalf of disenfranchised Muslims around the United States who are spiritual, moderate, and patriotic. A bold, thoughtful book, Moving the Mountain presents a fresh perspective and provides a common ground for all Americans—Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Synopsis:

Muslims in America who reject extremist or fundamentalist expressions of Islam at home and abroad feel the urgent need for a voice that can represent them in the current debate about Islam, America, and the West. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf—the so-called Ground Zero Imam—has become that voice. This is his vision for a new, American Islam.

About the Author

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder and CEO of the Cordoba Initiative, has served as Imam of the al-Farah mosque since 1983 and is the visionary behind the Cordoba House project planned near the World Trade Center in New York City. The author of three previous books about Islam, an American goodwill ambassador abroad, and a sought-after speaker and media guest, he lives in New York City.
