The Muslim Problem: Why We’re Wrong About Islam and Why It Matters


By Tawseef Khan

Why are Muslim men portrayed as inherently violent? Does the veil violate women’s rights? Is Islam stopping Muslims from integrating?

Across western societies, Muslims are more misunderstood than any other minority. But what does it mean to believe in Islam today, to have forged your beliefs and identity in the shadow of 9/11 and the War on Terror? Exploding stereotypes from both inside and outside the faith, The Muslim Problem shows that while we may think we know all about Islam we are often wrong about even the most basic facts.

Bold and provocative, The Muslim Problem is both a wake-up call for non-believers and a passionate new framework for Muslims to navigate a world that is often set against them.

“A bracing and brilliant book. From women’s rights to terrorism, The Muslim Problem takes apart misconceptions and shows what it’s really like to be a Muslim today. By placing Islamophobia in a historical context, Khan gives powerful insights into one of the most hotly-contested and topical issues of our times.” —Reza Aslan, author, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth
“Timely, urgent and eloquent. An honest and well-researched exploration of how biases, stereotypes and prejudices affect identity both from within and outside the Muslim community.” —Pragya Agarwal, author, Sway: Unravelling Unconscious Bias
