Books on British Muslims

Islam in Victorian Britain
An entertaining biography of Victorian Britain’s most notable Muslim, Abdullah Quilliam, the Sheikh of Islam of the British Isles.
This is the first full biography of Abdullah Quilliam (1856–1932), the most significant Muslim personality in nineteenth-century Britain. Uniquely ennobled as the Sheikh of Islam of the British Isles by the Ottoman caliph Sultan Abdul Hamid II in 1893, Quilliam was a charismatic preacher, lawyer, writer, and community leader.
British Muslims Between Assimilation and Segregation
The work should be read by serious-minded young Muslims who presently find themselves in the eye of the storm. They are the subject of academic and political interest, but it is within their grasp not to be passive actors taking up expected roles, but rather activists charting out their own destinies.
British Muslims Loyalty and Belonging
This book addresses a number of the pertinent issues relating to the current status of British Muslims who are under increasing public scrutiny in expressed terms of their allegiances and loyalties. The notions of loyalty and belonging are approached from two perspectives: the traditional Islamic view from the Shari’ah and a contemporary perspective bearing in mind the sociological, political and legal dimensions of the discussion.
The Last of the Lascars
A compelling and revealing history of the oldest Muslim community in Britain and its legacy on modern multicultural Britain.
Originally arriving as imperial oriental sailors and later as postcolonial labor migrants, Yemeni Muslims have lived in British ports and industrial cities from the mid-nineteenth century. They married local British wives, established a network of "Arab-only" boarding houses and cafes, and built Britain's first mosques and religious communities

Great Muslims of the West
Makers of Western Islam
In this illuminating work, Muhammad Mojlum Khan sets out to change this by revealing the lives and impact of over fifty significant Muslims, from the founder of Muslim Spain in the eighth century to Muhammad Ali today.

This extraordinary book features biographies on the enslaved African Prince Ayuba Sulaiman Diallo, who was put to work in the tobacco fields of Maryland; Alexander Russell Webb, the voice of Muslims in Victorian America; and W.D. Muhammad, Elijah Muhammad’s son, who converted the Nation of Islam’s followers to an authentic version of Islam.
