內容簡介


阿聯酋駐俄羅斯大使Omar Saif Ghobash《給年輕穆斯林的信》,讓世人理解當代穆斯林所面臨的困境、挑戰與責任。

☉《紐約時報》編輯選書
☉ 同獲《時代》、Stylist與《新政治家》雜誌選為2017年最被期待與最佳圖書

在這本給長子的書信集中,作者大膽且深入探索了作為21世紀穆斯林的意義。做為一個訓練有素的外交官和父親,Ghobash簡短且可讀性極高的宣言,意圖處理我們當前的全球危機。

現在年輕一代就是我們將來的領袖,當前的年輕穆斯林時常迷惘於極端份子利用無所不在的網路科技所散布的言論。Ghobash認為,當前最急迫的問題在於,溫和的穆斯林如何團結起來,找到一個可以積極且有效地融入現代世界的聲音,他並且提問,做為一個好的穆斯林有什麼樣的意義。

在本書中,他對年輕的穆斯林們提出了許多重要的問題。例如:美好生活的概念是什麼?那些扭曲了伊斯蘭信仰並且將教義融入錯誤的政治宣導中的人,如果有人站出來並且公開指責他們,這樣的行為可以被接受嗎?這些看似簡單的問題,對穆斯林來說都不容易。Ghobash鼓勵他的孩子,要勇敢面對那些他人認為無關緊要、行不通的、甚至是恐伊斯蘭的問題。

這些書信將啟發下一代穆斯林,教導他們如何對自己的信仰充滿信心,如何在錯綜複雜的當代世界逡巡探索,也讓不認識伊斯蘭世界的人理解,當代穆斯林在面對全世界時所面臨的掙扎和努力。

A New York Times Editor's Pick.

One of Time's Most Anticipated Books of 2017, a Bustle Best Nonfiction Pick for January 2017, a Chicago Review of Books Best Book to Read in January 2017, an Amazon Best of January 2017 in History, a Stylist Magazine Best Book of 2017, included in New Statesman's What to Read in 2017.

From the Ambassador of the UAE to Russia comes Letters to a Young Muslim, a bold and intimate exploration of what it means to be a Muslim in the twenty-first century.

In a series of personal letters to his son, Omar Saif Ghobash offers a short and highly readable manifesto that tackles our current global crisis with the training of an experienced diplomat and the personal responsibility of a father. Today’s young Muslims will be tomorrow’s leaders, and yet too many are vulnerable to extremist propaganda that seems omnipresent in our technological age. The burning question, Ghobash argues, is how moderate Muslims can unite to find a voice that is true to Islam while actively and productively engaging in the modern world. What does it mean to be a good Muslim?

What is the concept of a good life? And is it acceptable to stand up and openly condemn those who take the Islamic faith and twist it to suit their own misguided political agendas? In taking a hard look at these seemingly simple questions, Ghobash encourages his son to face issues others insist are not relevant, not applicable, or may even be Islamophobic. These letters serve as a clear-eyed inspiration for the next generation of Muslims to understand how to be faithful to their religion and still navigate through the complexities of today’s world. They also reveal an intimate glimpse into a world many are unfamiliar with and offer to provide an understanding of the everyday struggles Muslims face around the globe.
