More Information

Michael Muhammad Knight’s deeply original book fills a gap within existing literature on the place of magic in Islamic traditions and opens a new window on Islam for general readers and students of religion alike. In doing so, the book counters and complicates widespread perceptions of Islam, as well as of magic as it is practiced outside of European contexts.

Magic in Islam also challenges our view of “organized religions” as clearly defined systems that can be reduced to checklists of key doctrines, texts, and rules. As a result, Magic in Islam throws a monkey wrench into the conventions of the “intro to Islam” genre, threatening to flip popular notions of a religion’s “center” and “margins.”
