    Islam in the Post-Secular Society: Religion, Secularity and the Antagonism of Recalcitrant Faith critically examines the unique challenges facing Muslims in Europe and North America. From the philosophical perspective of the Frankfurt School’s Critical Theory, this book attempts not only to diagnose the current problems stemming from a marginalization of Islam in the secular West, but also Cited by: 1. Islam and Secularism is an antidote to the increasingly secularized world. The author highlights the permanence of Islam against the impermanent nature of Western civilization. He also points out that the decline of Muslim civilization is not due to its internal structure (like the Western civilization) but due to the loss of adab among Muslims/5.

    Definition of "secular" and "secularism" Though this page is not about secular or secularism itself, I think it is important to emphasize that the definition of secular and secularism vary among Muslim countries, as in Western countries. Therefore it might be better to point out its' ambiguity clearly in the sections of preface and overview. I have seen Formations of the Secular: Christianity, Islam, and Modernity referenced to all over and there is certainly much to ruminate on in this recondite read, but I would have preferred a clearer and more accessible explanation (I found Talal Asads argument quite convoluted and challenging to follow).4/5(29).

    However, as Olivier Roy makes clear in this book, Muslim intellectuals have made it possible for Muslims to live concretely in a secularized world while maintaining the identity of a "true believer." They have formulated a language that recognizes two spaces: that of religion and that of secular society. I edit-conflicted with an edit that regards the Center for Inquiry as sponsors: well, that's the language the source uses: "Secular Islam Summit, sponsored by a humanist organization called the Center for Inquiry," quoth the news report. If I've missed anything, please let me know. Thanks. Writ Keeper ⚇ ♔ , 25 April (UTC).
