PostMuqtedar Khan's "Islam and Good Governance" (Muqtedar Khan, USA, 05/05/19 3:44 am)
Dear Waisers: It is with great pleasure that I announce the publication of my book Islam and Good Governance: A Political Philosophy of Ihsan (Palgrave/Macmillan).
You can see the early endorsements for the book from prominent scholars below. The book is a labor of love and it offers an alternate view of Islamic politics that emphasized love over law, compassion over judgement, forgiveness over revenge and gentleness over harshness. Every claim and every assertion on how to govern is backed by direct references from the Quran and Sunnah. The book is an antidote to the venom being spewed in the name of Islam by extremist demagogues and terrorist groups like al Qaeda and Islamic State.

JE comments: A big congratulations to my good friend and (long ago!) former colleague at Adrian College, Muqtedar Khan. Muqtedar is now a professor of Political Science at the U of Delaware, my mom and dad's Alma Mater. Muqtedar, here's my proposal--lunch or tea in Newark sometime in July, and you sign my copy of Islam and Good Governance?
Ihsan translates as "excellence" or "perfection."
