Description from the publisher:

An eighteen-year-old Iranian boy is thrust into a new and strange world in search of a Western education. He returns home after 13 years and becomes a leader in the academic and medical community, working to foster progress. Decades later, and after years of soul-searching in the U.S. as an immigrant Muslim, he passionately shares his insights gained from living between two cultures.

Transplanted is the personal testimony of a man who has succeeded in life on both sides of the cultural line and sees clearly that Islam is compatible with modernity and western civilization. It is the wisdom of a man who passionately wants to share his insights with those, both Muslims and non-Muslims, who wonder about these issues. And it is a call to future generations of Muslims in America and Europe not to lose their heritage, but to have the courage to explore it, understand it, cherish it, preserve it, and draw from it inspirations and ideas that they can contribute to the betterment of their adopted homeland.


About the Author

MAHMOOD SARRAM, MD, grew up in Iran and studied medicine at the University of Freiburg, Germany, and the University of Chicago, specializing in obstetrics and gynecology. As a professor of medicine back home in Iran, he introduced students to the most modern practices, published articles, and helped start family planning programs. As Vice-Dean of the Medical School at the University of Isfahan, he grew frustrated by cultural problems and political obstacles, and he left Iran in 1983 for a position with the WHO (World Health Organisation) in Bangladesh. Later he emigrated to the U.S. and entered private practice in Washington State. In 1988, Dr. Sarram founded the American Moslem Foundation (AMF), whose mission is to foster understanding of Islam among Americans and to educate American Muslim children about their cultural and religious heritage. Subsequently, he founded the House of Mercy Cemetery, a Muslim cemetery. The AMF’s future plans include developing an Islamic theological school.
