Conclusion

" 'Islam and social work' is certainly an interesting and informative read, whether for the social worker or a broader range of practitioners". Professional Social Work, Feb 2009

"With the emergence of Muslim communities in Western societies, and in the context of Islamohobia, multiculturalism vs. social cohesion and secularism vs. religious identities, this book makes an important contribution to our understanding of culturally competent approaches in social work practice." Ravinder Barn, Professor of Social Policy and Social Work, Royal Holloway, University of London

"This book will be an invaluable resource for social workers wishing to come to grips with the complexity and range of different Islamic beliefs and to gain a critical understanding of how they affect practice." Robert Adams, Professor of Social Work, University of Teesside
