This unique textbook enables social work practitioners to gain a deeper understanding of how Islamic principles inform and influence the lives of Muslim populations. This second edition includes a comprehensive update of the research literature and detailed description and explanation of contemporary social work practice with Muslim service users, using an up-dated and expanded list of international case studies. Designed to support work with families and faith communities, the book examines religious precepts, cosmologies, philosophies and daily practices, while acknowledging cultural variants and population heterogeneity. It also includes new sections on religious extremism and ageing and end-of-life. This is the only book specifically on social work with Muslim communities and provides an essential toolkit for culturally sensitive social work practice. -
