Muslims account for one-fifth of the world’s population, and their faith, Islam, is the world’s second-largest and fastest-growing religion. The Frontline special Muslims offers snapshots of life in Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Egypt, Turkey, and the United States, focusing on how Muslims struggle with differing definitions of Islam’s role in their lives. The two-hour documentary is divided into three sections: Islam and the West; Islamic Belief, Law and Practice; and Women and Islam. Each section offers both a historical and contemporary perspective, drawing on interviews with leading Muslim scholars to demystify the notion of Islam as a singular force, immune to social change. During a time of escalating conflict between Islam and the West, the insights offered here are especially illuminating. For anyone seeking to better understand both the internal workings of Islamic societies and their global relations, Muslims is an invaluable resource.
