Synopsis

The War Within Our Hearts Struggles of the Muslim Youth by Habeeb Quadri, Sa'Ad Quadri

This book was written with the purpose of showing Muslim youth in the West that they are not alone in the problems they are facing today. As integration and assimilation to society is increasing within the Muslim community, youth are battling a variety of enemies that were not faced by their parents. By recognizing that these problems are not unique to an individual but are common place for Muslim youth today, this book will address certain issues which would have otherwise been avoided. Although this book does not necessarily provide answers to all issues, the goal of this book is to provide a platform for us to begin dialogue on these issues in order to get closer to our Creator. This is a revised edition with introduction by Imam Zaid Shakir.

Reviews

Each chapter takes its flavor from its title. Issues, problems and concerns are examined in most cases from the young person's point of view and also from the parent's point of view. This lends a balance to the discussion. Quotes from the Qur'an and Ahadith occur throughout the book. Stories from the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), his companions and the Prophets are used to illustrate a point and are seamlessly integrated into the text. A box at the end of each chapter provides helpful summaries of the main action points or reminders to note. Ummah Reads
