1 Asghar Ali Engineer (Author) & Mushirul Hasan (Frwd)
A Living Faith: My Quest for Peace, Harmony and Social Change (An Autobiography of Asghar Ali Engineer)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045724 / 9788125045724; Softcover; New; 
For most of the seventy-one years of his life, Asghar Ali Engineer has been a tireless soldier to the cause of national integration and communal harmony. Well-known today as a reformist, an activist and Islamic scholar, Asghar Ali Engineer received the Right Livelihood, or the ‘Alternative Nobel’, award in 2004 ‘for promoting over many years in South Asia the values of religious and communal co-existence, tolerance and mutual understanding’. Written with the simplicity that perhaps describes the man himself, is an extensive autobiographical account of Asghar Ali Engineer’s commitment to building an inclusive society and his inter-pretation of Islam as a modernist. It chronicles the personal, social and political events that shaped his life and views, his struggle against the orthodox Bohra priesthood and his rise as a leader of social and religious reform. It also documents his interactions with religious and political leaders of various hues across the world in the attempt to create a society that embraces all faiths.Printed Pages: 360. 101897

3 Asghar Ali Engineer
Islam Restructuring Theology
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828640; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The author argues forcefully, supported ably by citations from the scriptures as well as their interpretation by scholars, how Islam has by and large been misinterpreted as a code of regression. From explaining how banking is allowed by the religion to the redundancy of the burqah, from providing the real definition of kafir to enumerating the rights of married and divorced partners in a couple, from putting jihad in the correct perspective to questioning the authenticity of any story that goes in the name of Hadith… Asghar Ali Engineer offers an issue-by-issue rebuttal of the uneducated notion that Muslims are an obscurantist lot. Of course, he has no kind words for the ulema that earn the faith a bad name; he might well have stuck his neck out to invite their ire by lambasting their tendency to interpret the Qur'an in the most unlikely, yet convenient, manner that suits a patriarchal, male chauvinist and sectarian mindset. Neither Allah nor His Prophet, the author insists, would approve of the injustice a motley group of monopolyists in the faith have unleashed on humanity. For all practical purposes, Islam is as modern as it gets.Printed Pages: 236. 104827

4 Asghar Ali Engineer
Islam: Misgivings and History
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380828008; Softcover; New; 
Islam is often misunderstood because of certain fundamentals who have turned jihad into a misnomer and lead the youth astray. This book digs the truth out of the closet and clears the haze off the myths which have been passed off as Holy Preachings. The articles reflect the author's impeccable understanding of Islam and Qur’anic teachings. Sensitive issues like gender and feminism along with other commonly debated theories on science, corporal punishment, Hindutva, cow slaughter and violence have been astutely dealt with.Ali discourses on several disputed issues and quotes extensively from Qur’an. He unravels the mystery of the “Missing Verse” in whose guises people take undue liberties and also demystifies the word kafir. He refutes those who preach that science and Islam are oxymorons and unveils the hidden similarities between the two. He gives even arguments on the shortcomings of people in interpreting them. He dives into the unfathomable and rediscovers the origin of Islam. This Compilation is a must-read for all those who want to understand the preachings of the religion which has for long been unjustly associated with fanaticism. Printed Pages: 238. 107258

Rational Approach to Islam
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121207258 / 9788121207256; Hardcover; New; New; 
There are gross misunderstandings about Islam among Muslims as well as non-Muslims. There are several stereotypes about Islam which have got wide currency. Some orthodox Muslims refuse to change, while standing rigidly by theology, developed by the Ulema of the early period. Many extremists organisations among Muslims are giving Currency to rude ideas about Islam which are not in keeping with the real Teaching of Islam. Sometimes the media also misrepresents Islam and projects it as if it stands for Violence and suppression of human rights.Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer, an internationally known scholar of Islam approaches Islam rationally and projects Islamic teachings in its right spirit. He has taken up several issues in his Essays on Islam, some of which have been collected in this volume. He rationally and objectively deals with various issues, which are of contemporary significance. Whatever he writes, he writes with force of his scholarship. In this volume he deals with issues like interfaith approach of Islam, Islam and Gender justice, Islamic ethics, meaning of Prayer in Islam, core teaching of Islam, Islam and concept of jihad, etc., which are all highly relevant issues. This book will help scholars as well as lay readers to capture the real spirit of Islam and its teachings. It will help dispel misconceptions about Islam. The Author has also argued forcefully that Islam is far from being an anti-diluvion Religion and is as modern as any system of thought could be.Printed Pages: 300. 106026
