Islam and Post-Modernism: Iqbal as a Turning Point, by Amjad Hussein
Islam and Post-Modernism: Iqbal as a Turning Point, is a critique of contemporary Muslim responses, especially Ziauddin Sardar, Akbar S. Ahmed, and Tariq Ramadan, to the relative proximity between Islam and Post-Modernism. The book highlights how they have missed the deeper laying philosophical camaraderie between Islam and Post-Modernism. It deconstructs their respective responses, while at the same time it makes a case for reading Allama Muhammad Iqbal as the turning point in Muslim scholarship’s responses to Post-Modernism.
