CONTENTS

  1. 1. THE SEVENTIES We begin by looking at the early years of the author’s life.                
  2. 2. LUCK OR BLESSINGS Some of the formative influences in the author’s later thought processes now start to make their presence felt.                                                                                       
  3. 3. RELIGION OR SCIENCE (OR BOTH)? Is there really a conflict between the two?          
  4. 4. HAVE MUSLIMS ALWAYS BEEN “THICK”? Considers whether or not there has been any Muslim intellectual contribution to the development of the modern world.                                 
  5. 5. OR IN NEED OF ANGER-MANAGEMENT? Explores some of the areas where Muslims may be justified in feeling aggrieved.                                                                                                           
  6. 6. SO WHO IS THE “ENEMY”? Is it accurate to portray Islam as a global threat, or is this just a convenient mask to conceal the misdeeds of others?                                                        
  7. 7. AND WHO ARE THE SILENT MAJORITY? What sort of thinking, if any, is going on in the contemporary Muslim world?                                                                                                                    
  8. 8. HOW IS IT LOOKING FOR THE FUTURE THEN? Are the prospects for the future as bleak as may appear at first blush, or are there seeds of positive developments which just need nourishing?
9. SUGGESTED FURTHER READING For those who want to build further with the simple blocks that have been offered up here.
