Description from the publisher:

What does it mean to be a Muslim?

Ask 10 people and you’ll probably receive 10 different answers. The American Muslim Teenager’s Handbook is a positive, informative guide to Islam in America. It conveys the basics of Islam in an upbeat, entertaining style from a progressive, teen perspective.

Dilara Hafiz was born in Karachi, Pakistan. She holds degrees from John Hopkins University and the London School of Economics. She has drawn upon her years of teaching weekend Islamic school, lecturing about Islam, and raising Muslim teenagers to contribute to The American Muslim Teenager’s Handbook.

Yasmine Hafiz is a member of Yale University’s Class of 2012. She was a 2008 Presidential Scholar. An avid reader, she hopes to become involved in international relations as a career. Yasmine enjoys watching movies and listening to a wide variety of music.

Imran Hafiz is a member of the Brophy College Preparatory Class of 2010. He frequently spends his time volunteering in the emergency department of one of the Scottsdale Healthcare hospitals in Arizona, in addition to being involved in school theater productions. Imran is also a member of his school’s Weapons of Mass Percussion hand-drum club, and also enjoys playing guitar, piano, and traditional drums.

Both Imran and Yasmine are recipients of the 2007 Council of American- Islamic Relations’ (Arizona chapter) Outstanding Youth Service Award, as well as the 2008 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Living the Dream Award presented by the city of Phoenix’s Human Relations Commission.

Review

Aspires to nothing less than bridging a cultural chasm... Amid its witty aside sand tongue-in-cheek answers to multiple-choice questions, the handbook clearly stakes out a position for a moderate, flexible version of Islam, one that places a higher premium on moral intent than reflexive observance of every rule... --Samuel G. Freedman - New York Times

I believe it is a path-breaking and invaluable window into how some Muslim teens are coping with the challenges of growing up in the West. I found it both eye-opening and encouraging. It gives me hope for the future. As such, it is a must-read for all who care about the future of Islam in the West. --Dr. Jeffrey Lang - author of Struggling to Surrender, Even Angels Ask: A Journey to Islam in America, and Losing My Religion: A Call for Help

This is a terrific, personable, and useful book for young Muslims and for people of all ages and faiths including the secular, who are still trying to figure out the difference between a great majority of actual American Muslims--real people like the rest of us--and the crazed stereotypes generated by war headlines thousands of miles away. Full of candor, contemporary savvy, and wisdom beyond mere years, the Handbook should be in the hands and on the minds of inquiring Americans everywhere. --Michael Wolfe - author of The Hadj and Taking Back Islam

"The first book of its kind.... The handbook exudes an American perspective, upbeat and non-judgmental. It encourages teens...to make their own responsible choices about their faith practices." -- Christian Science Monitor
