The Empire & the Crescent invites readers to examine the role of the United States in world politics and draws their attention to the dangers that open-ended and unchecked American power can cause to the world and ultimately, to itself.
In this work, Hamza Yusuf decisively makes the case for sighting the crescent moon with the naked eye, as has been the Islamic tradition for 1400 years. This is essential reading for anyone seeking guidance on this important and sacred matter.
Islam is the most maligned religion in the West. The Western view of Islam is rooted in centuries of mistrust, ignorance, and stereotypical attitudes—the inherited biases of the pre-modern clash of civilizations. This small book can do much to edify those concerned citizens in the West about the beauty and truth of Islam.
