This book explores the contemporary Muslim experience through first-hand interviews with over a hundred Muslims to raise awareness of what Islam is, as well as deepen understanding about the lived realities of Muslim people. Exploring key issues such as women and Islam, extremism and radicalisation, Sharia Law, homosexuality, and Islamophobia, the interviews look deep into what it means to be Muslim today. The voices of Muslims are showcased throughout the book to highlight the diversity and evolution of Islam, and to show its inherent complexities and contradictions. This book acts as a profound and poignant introduction to this religion.
