Gandhi's Responses to Islam

Sheila McDonough (Author)
Synopsis Look at him as we may: whether as an exceptional human being, a modern-age prophet, a unique politician, or a charismatic leader of non-violent movement, Gandhi’s many-sidedness is proverbial. And, then, he was a religious genius as well—with genuine tolerance and respect for all mankind’s faiths. Here is the first ever study exploring exclusively Gandhi’s attitude to Islam, from his childhood to the last years of his phenomenally eventful life. In thematically focussing on his responsiveness to Islam, Dr. Sheila McDonough addresses a vital question: "Why did Gandhi say the things, he did, about Islam?" Which leads her to meticulously trace, among other determinants, the intellectual influences that had helped shape Gandhi’s vision of Islam—the vision he particularly shared with many of his Indian contemporaries. The author, a widely known authority on Islamic studies, puts together many of Gandhi’s observations about Prophet Mohammed, the holy Qur’an and the Islamic faith to emphasize that his positive, respectful response to Islam was not matter of political pragmatism, nor a fa?ade to unify Indians at a critical period of their history, but it went far beyond—to a philosophical understanding of the very essence of Islam. Unfailingly convincing, Prof. McDonough combines, in her writing, a rare scholarship with readability that makes her book at once fascinating to both specialists and common readers anywhere in the modern world.
