Islam & Modernity

book cover image Letters To A Young Muslim

As the United Arab Emirates ambassador to Russia, Omar Saif Ghobash reflected on what it means to be a Muslim. This book is the result.

The new generation of Muslims is tomorrow's leadership, yet some, says Ghobash, are taking the violent "shortcut to paradise", ignoring the foundations of Islam. The burning question, he argues, is how moderate Muslims will find a voice true to Islam while actively engaging in the modern world. 

Letters to a Young Muslim explores how Arabs can provide themselves with a better chance of prosperity in a globalized world.
