The Future of Secularism
[and other interesting, if far-fetched, myths]

by Haroon Moghul

In an effort to encourage the development of fiction writing among Muslims, we at Sound Vision will be presenting the novel The Future of Secularism by Haroon Moghul, president of the Islamic Center of New York University. Amusing, analytical and intelligent, this novel presents the internal struggles of Hayy, a young Muslim college student living in a society where the pull of Islam and the pull of secularism put him at a crossroads in his life. There is much that young Muslims living and growing up in the West can relate to here.

[We hope this never-before-published novel is one that will give you a taste for modern Muslim fiction. Insha Allah, we would like to publish works from other authors in future as well. Sound Vision]

Comment: may i know where is the second part of this book? or is it already published in hard copy? coz if it is, it's hard for me coming from the other half of the world to get my hands on it. to haroon, u might have heard this many times, but this is an astounding work.
