Written by a leading practitioner and academic in the field of youth and community work, this multidisciplinary book approaches the lives of Muslim young people from theoretical, social, and theological viewpoints. M. G. Khan moves beyond notions of gendered provision and confessional activity to ask what defines a Muslim pedagogy. He presents a theoretical frame for Muslim youth work that is accessible to informal educators and Muslims alike, providing insight and analysis of nuances that are only possible from on-the-ground engagement.
Paul Thomas | Youth and Policy
“A genuinely philosophical and theoretical discussion of youth work’s pedagogical purpose and approach that also provides hard-edged critique of societal attitudes towards young Muslims and policies aimed at them, while written in an accessible and engaging style."
Henry Giroux, author of Twilight of the Social
“Young Muslims, Pedagogy and Islam may be the most important book yet written on the genealogy of youth work and its crucial importance to Muslim youth at a time in which the social state is under attack and the war on youth has taken on new and ruthless racist directions. Muhammad Khan provides a brilliant critique of the diverse social, economic, political, pedagogical, and cultural ideologies and policies that bear down on Muslim youth in and through diverse approaches to youth work and services. This is a book that should be read by everyone who believes that bigotry rather justice and diversity is the enemy of democracy.”
Janet Batsleer, Manchester Metropolitan University
“Khan challenges the prevailing 'othering' of Islam by policy agendas driven by fear. He shows how significant Islamic pedagogies can shape and move youth work practice focussed on everyday lives.”
