What Is an American Muslim?: Embracing Faith and Citizenship
"Abdullahi An-Na'im is arguably America's most important Muslim thinker and in this book he lays out the most compelling argument I've ever read about what it really means to be Muslim and American in a post-9/11 world." --Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and Zealot 

"This book is an eloquent call for American Muslims to stand at the crossroads of faith and citizenship and look both ways at once. I highly recommend it." --Eboo Patel, author of Sacred Ground: Pluralism, Prejudice and the Promise of America

"Well-known scholar, lawyer, and human rights activist Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im draws on his wealth of knowledge in these fields to examine critical issues bearing on Muslim-American citizenship, illuminating its meanings and implications-legal and otherwise-and the rights and responsibilities it implies. Arguing that Muslim-Americans should take a proactive, affirmative view of citizenship, he explores a range of issues, including the highly topical one of sharia law in America. As always, An-Na'im's analyses and reflections cast much-needed light on an important and controversial subject." --Leila Ahmed, author of A Quiet Revolution: The Veil's Resurgence, from the Middle East to America
