Since 9/11, Islamic charities have been in the firing line. Some portray the entire sector as a conduit for terrorist financing. In this new updated edition of their groundbreaking work, Jerome Bellion-Jourdan and Jonathan Benthall provide a radical new perspective on the whole issue of aid and Islamic finance. They explore the social and political history of zakat and waqf, and in so doing challenge Western assumptions about the nature of humanitarianism. The authors outline the impact of the 'War on Terror', and argue that obstacles set up against financial transfers in conflict zones can have the unintended result of driving terrorist financing further underground, as well as depriving victims of much needed assistance.Islamic charities will continue to play a pivotal role in world politics as they respond to crises in the Middle East, Pakistan, Indonesia and elsewhere. This thoughtful and meticulously researched book is the one indispensable guide to the issues surrounding this complicated and misunderstood phenomenon.

Review:

'An important and timely part of the debate surrounding Islamic charities....this book is the first time anyone has attempted to look at the issue of charity in the Muslim world and put it in the context of contemporary global politics. It is an enormous and challenging task tackled in an objective and scholarly manner...it should also be on the bedside table of every Muslim and non-Muslim administrator and politician.' --Andre Singer, Times Higher Education Supplement
