Book Discussion: Letters to a Young Muslim

Letters to a Young Muslim is a series of personal letters by Omar Saif Ghobash to his sons about the question of how to live as a moderate Muslim in this modern world. Ghobash is the ambassador to Russia for the United Arab Emirates. He is also an author and a sponsor of the International Prize for Arabic Fiction and the Prize for Arabic Literary Translation, with degrees in law from Oxford and in mathematics from the University of London. Each letter tackles a different subject about what it means to be Muslim and addresses issues of freedom, gender roles, fundamentalism, violence, and many others with the explicit explicit purpose of protecting his sons from extremist recruitment.
