What can we learn from Islamic teachings that will take us closer to addressing today’s most pressing development challenges, including forced migration and refugees, safeguarding and child welfare, gender-based violence, climate change, and peacebuilding and conflict resolution?
How can the mechanisms of charitable giving in Islam, such as zakat, sadaqah and waqf be used to fund development programmes?
Islam and International Development is the culmination of extensive grass-roots experience of working among Muslim communities in developing countries, coupled with the commentary of academics and researchers. It includes analysis of successful projects that have respected and incorporated Islamic teachings into their design and delivery, so that development professionals and Muslim communities can work together to effect meaningful and sustainable change.
