Letters To A Young Muslim

There have been many books written over the past decade or two dispensing advice to youth from wizened mentors, many of them titled “Letters To A Young …..” and you can fill in the blank.  For example, Letters To A Young Scientist by Edward O. Wilson.  A welcome addition to this genre is Letters To A Young Muslim, authored by Omar Saif Ghobash, in the form of messages to his 16 year old son, Saif.  Mr. Ghobash’s voice is a breath of fresh air in calling for moderation and balance among young Muslims, and he is mindful that he is sticking his neck out in his role as Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Russia.  Aside from moderate religious and political views, there are some nifty insights he offers about his love of books.
