1 Carl W. Ernst
Following Muhammad: Rethinking Islam in the Contemporary World
Yoda Press; New Delhi, India; 8190227297 / 9788190227292; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Making a radical departure from the recently proliferating publications on Islam—journalist exposés on terrorist intrigues and solemn expositions on the clash of civilizations - renowned Islamicist Carl Ernst offers in this book a sympathetic yet reasoned and analytical view of the Islamic religious tradition and the contemporary issues that Muslims face. He introduces the reader to the profound spiritual and intellectual resources of Islam while clarifying debate and highlighting diversity within the tradition. Writing from within the framework of religious studies and the historical context he describes how Protestant definitions of religion and anti-Muslim prejudice have affected views of Islam in Europe and America. He also discusses the contemporary importance of Islam in both its traditional settings and its new locations and provides a context for understanding extremist movements like fundamentalism. Ernst concludes with an overview of critical debates on important contemporary issues such as gender and veiling, state politics, and science and religion. Revealing the human face of Islam, this timely and important volume aims at stimulating conversation between Muslims and non-Muslims in a world that they have commonly inherited. Contents Preface 1. Islam in the Eyes of the West 2. Approaching Islam in Terms of Religion 3. The Sacred Sources of Islam 4. Ethics and Life in the World 5. Spirituality in Practice 6.

4 Carl W. Ernst
Sufism: An Introduction to the Mystical Tradition of Islam
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2011; 1590308840 / 9781590308844; Softcover; New; 
The Sufis are as diverse as the countries in which they've flourished—from Morocco to India to China—and as varied as their distinctive forms of art, music, poetry, and dance. They are said to represent the mystical heart of Islam, yet the term Sufism is notoriously difficult to define, as it means different things to different people both within and outside the tradition. With that fact in mind, Carl Ernst explores the broadest range of Sufi philosophies and practices to provide one of the most complete and comprehensive introductions to Sufism available in English. He traces the history of the movement from the earliest days of Islam to the present day, along the way examining its relationship to the larger world of Islam and its encounters with both fundamentalism and secularism in the modern world. Printed Pages: 288. 110959
