A Princess's Pilgrimage
In 1870, Begum Nawab Sikandar Begum of Bhopal became the first Muslim woman to publish an account of her pilgrimage to Mecca. Her critical and often surprising description provides unique insight into the factors that went into writing this quintessentially Muslim journey in a colonial environment. At the same time, it documents a process by which notions of the self could be redefined against a Muslim 'other' and the way in which Arabia was constructed by a colonial subject as part of a modernist discourse about 'the Orient'.

Amina
Novels in English by northern Nigerian writers are few, so the arrival of a new one is an exciting literary event. This dramatic story of the efforts of the heroine and her friends to bring about change in the social conditions of women in Nigeria addresses pressing political issues which rarely appear in fiction--the legal status of Muslim women, the limitations imposed on them by traditional and religious conventions, the restrictions on their economic activities, the effects of a corrupt patriarchal system on the society at large and women in particular, the humiliations visited on women as a result of unquestioned male power in personal relationship.
From a woman's point of view. Ingeniously conceived and deftly written, this is a story about the emancipation of women in Nigeria from within. Not simply a social document, it engages the reader's sympathy through its portrayal of the attractive and believable woman after whom it is titled--Amina.

British Muslims Loyalty and Belonging
The issue of how ‘loyal’ or to what extent Muslims ‘belong’ in Britain is a topical debate of our times. This book addresses a number of the pertinent issues relating to the current status of British Muslims who are under increasing public scrutiny in expressed terms of their allegiances and loyalties. The notions of loyalty and belonging are approached from two perspectives: the traditional Islamic view from the Shari’ah and a contemporary perspective bearing in mind the sociological, political and legal dimensions of the discussion.

GOD ARISES
GOD Arises: Evidence Of God In Nature & Science This book, the result of 30 years of exhaustive research, attempts to present the basic teachings of religion in the light of modern knowledge and in a manner consistent with modern scientific methods. After a thorough investigation of the subject, the writer has reached the conclusion that religious teachings are, academically, valid and as understandable and intellectually acceptable as any of the theories propounded by men of science. “…in the fourteen hundred years of Islamic history, innumerable books on Islam have appeared. There are just a few books calling mankind to God. They are clearly distinguishable from the rest because of the clarity and force with which they make their appeal. Without doubt, this book is one of that kind.” -Al-Ahram, Cairo"

Perceptions of Islam in European Writings
This book is part of the wider study of Islam and the West: a history of European, mainly French and English, intellectual responses to Islam from the seventeenth century onwards. It focuses on the nineteenth century. Studies on Islam and the West have so far tended to be dominated by non-Muslim writers. This study, therefore, attempts to put forward a scholarly, Muslim, point of view, on a subject which has acquired increasing importance in our time. Relying on primary European and Islamic source materials, it remains firmly committed to the
notion of fidelity to European thought. It paves the way to a constructive dialogue between equals, Islam and the West. This book is primarily concerned with the intellectual history of Western, mainly French and English, writers’ response to Isxlam from about 1787 to 1890s. However, it also discusses works of earlier and later periods on the Quran and the Prophet as these are relevant to the current debate on the subject
