I Refuse to Condemn: Resisting Racism in Times of National Security / Asim Qureshi

In times of heightened national security, scholars and activists from the communities under suspicion often attempt to alert the public to the more complex stories behind the headlines. But when they raise questions about the government, military and police policy, these individuals are routinely shut down and accused of being terrorist sympathisers or apologists. This collection of essays, written by various academics and activists, explain how the expectation to condemn has emerged, tracking it against the normalisation of racism, and explores how writers manage to subvert expectations as part of their commitment to anti-racism.

Nasir al-Din Tusi: A Philosopher For All / Saiyeh Meisami

An introduction to the life and thought of the mediaeval Persian polymath Nasir al-Din Tusi (d. 1274). Tusi’s scholarly impact on the history of Muslim theoretical and practical wisdom is comparable only to that of Ibn Sina (Avicenna) who served as a model for Tusi’s philosophical and scientific endeavours.

Tusi’s intellectual orientation was towards crossing boundaries between Hellenic, Peripatetic, Illuminationist, Twelver, Isma’ili and Sufi discourses.

With the Heart in Mind: The Moral & Emotional Intelligence of the Prophet / Mikaeel Ahmed Smith

With the Heart in Mind is an inquiry into the nature of the intellect and why classical Islamic theologians understood the nature and function of the intellect. The work also explores ways the Prophet (peace be upon him) demonstrated multiple intelligences and asks readers to consider an alternative understanding of intelligence in which the primary function of the intellect is to know God and lead others to Him as well.
