    EBOOK or KINDLE (The Taqwacores) ✓ Michael Muhammad Knight So tedious I really couldn't wait for this book to end but I am giving it 3 stars because it exposed me to ideas I hadn't run into before punk Muslims and I imagine that 14 year old me would have loved it However most of the characters feel like ideas or sides of an argument than actual people About 80% of the book is a c

Summary The Taqwacores

Michael Muhammad Knight è 2 Free read Download ´ The Tawacores 102 A Muslim punk house in Buffalo New York inhabited by bura wearing riot girls mohawked Sufis straightedge Sunnis Shi’a skinheads Indonesian skaters Sudanese rude boys gay Muslims drunk Muslims and feminists Their living room hosts parties and prayers with. This is a really fascinating story of a super small social niche Muslim punks who it never even occurred to me to think existed The story itself was a little clumsy the writing structure a bit amateur ish but on the whole very readable and like I said fascinating There s a ton of Arabic Farsi sprinkled through which jars harshly as was of course the intention with punk lyrics and plenty of profanity Basically there s this punk house like any punk house anywhere walls coated with posters fliers floor roiling with beer bottles and vomit and passed out people but everyone who lives there is a semi devout Muslim So the opening scene has people stirring on beer soaked couches and getting up to set up prayer rugs and have a ceremony Cool rightOther than the obvious strangeness of the setting this is definitely a character driven novel And while the characters are a bit caricature y they re clearly set up that way so they can have really interesting conversations about Islam punk how to pray whether women should have rights how literally to take holy texts etc There s a straightedge guy with dozens of Koran tattoos There s a girl who wears a full burka which is covered with punk band patches There s stoners and mohawks and skaters and nerds and all the rest There re even excerpts from a Muslim sci fi series where people are trying to figure out how to convert the Martians to Islam Anyway here is my favorite passage from the book I think you can replace punk in the below with lots of big concept movement type words which is pretty neat I stopped trying to define punk around the same time I stopped trying to define Islam They aren t so far removed as you d think Both began in tremendous bursts of truth and vitality but seem to have lost something along the way the energy perhaps that comes with knowing the world has never seen such positive force and fury and never would again Both have suffered from sell outs and hypocrites but also from true believers whose devotion had crippled their creative drive Both are viewed by outsiders as unified cohesive communities when nothing can be further from the truthI could go on but the most important similarity is that like punk as mentioned above Islam is an open symbol representing not things but ideas You cannot hold punk or Islam in your hands So what could they mean besides what you want them toOh And this edition which is I think only eight bucks was put out by the super fabulous all volunteer run Brooklyn collective Autonomedia Support them

I wanted to like this book but couldn t I guess I had higher expectations these characters were just typical college students who just wanted to party and behave irresponsibly just give in to their desires and didn t want to follow any rules Islamic or otherwiseThere were plenty of complaints about the u ran the Prophet s hadiths hell and heaven ICNA conferences imam and mosues and MSAs Islam s treatment of women etc While I was sympathetic towards a good number of their complaints reading the same angry rants over and over got very repetitive and tiresome especially since I didn t find any of the characters appealing or the plot interesting Now maybe that s because I don t like punk music I was expecting much of a political slant how about throwing rotten sandwiches at the gleaming car of that corporate executive How about spitting in the face of that slimy politician or harassing that military recruiter Where were the complaints about the unfairness of the global economy Where was the concern for human rights And the anger against lies and hypocrisy we are fed on a daily basis by the mediaNa these kids were totally focused very much on themselves which is why they won t cause any real changes within Islam or without Most likely they ll grow out of their punk state and become responsible citizens horror of horrors If not they will just waste away in irrelevance
