How does Islam engage with the idea of the modern and with the contemporary world? How is Muslim tradition to be reconciled with a world in continuous flux and change? These questions lie at the heart of current discussions of the Islamic faith and of its doctrines, beliefs and practices.
Engaging directly with such questions, this important volume discusses such key themes as identity and citizenship, piety and protest and music and modes of dress. Muslim as well as non-Muslim scholars explore how religiosity and tradition may both have an active role to play in the unfolding of what we understand of as "the modern." Modernity is commonly portrayed as a break with traditionalism: and as a marriage to the secular. Yet the core values at stake--from the ethos of intellectualism to the pluralism of civic culture--have roots in diverse civilizations, and certainly in those of Islam. A vital theme in the book is the role played by the ethical imagination in expressions of the civil determined by a diversity of Qur’anic understandings. This role is important in practices of civil society and citizenship, in grappling with new technologies, and in the challenges posed by political violence. Since 9/11, the West's failure to come to grips with plural modernities has reinforced simplistic assumptions about a "clash of civilizations." Fresh perspectives are offered here on what it is to be both modern and Muslim, mindful of the multiple narratives that inform both identities.

It is the year 1262. After saving Ciri from the Brokilon dryads, Geralt ventures north. At the same time a war breaks out with Nilfgaard, a war that would end with the battle of Sodden Hill, which would supposedly claim the life of Yennefer of Vengerberg. The realms of the extreme North remained neutral, and the land is relatively peaceful. The Principality of Malleore, where this story is set, lies on the banks of the Braa river in the foothills of the Dragon Mountains. The small, heavily fortified castle of House Creigiau is located on the bank of the Crea, one of the Braa’s inlets. The mountainous region was ideal for shepherding, so the Barons of Creigiau spent centuries trading in wool. However, around 1251, the castellan Lazare convinced his Baron to switch to logging instead. This industry fuels the busy shipyards of neighboring Kovir. Esterad Thyssen, the king of Kovir, and his wife Zuleyka are the followers of the “Good Book” and its author, the prophet Lebioda. It is likely that trade relations with Kovir brought the cult to Creigiau. As it is often the case, the peasants did not abandon their worship of older, pagan deities, like the locally revered leshy.
This work is partly an art installation and partly a tense generational conflict, set in and around a house poised to fall into the sea.
"Para kasing wala akong karapatang umasang papayag ka na maging asawa ko." Nagpunta sa Japan si Akira upang kunin ang mga ari-ariang naiwan ng kanyang namayapang ina—at hindi sinasadyang nakuha niya ang shishi kuro, isang pigurin na sagrado sa isang organisasyong kilalang walang sinasanto. Hindi nagluwat ay nagsimulang manganib ang kanyang buhay. Si Ishmael Cristobal, isang half Filipino-half Japanese, ang katana na naatasang bawiin mula sa kanya ang shishi kuro. Taglay ang maamong mukha, taglay rin ng binata ang matatag na pagkatao batay sa prinsipyo ng kinaaaniban nitong grupo. Dapat katakutan ni Akira ang pagkataong iyon—ngunit bakit iyon pa ang nakapagpalambot sa matigas niyang puso?
