Why are Muslim men portrayed as inherently violent? Does the veil violate women’s rights? Is Islam stopping Muslims from integrating?

Across western societies, Muslims are more misunderstood than any other minority. But what does it mean to believe in Islam today, to have forged your beliefs and identity in the shadow of 9/11 and the War on Terror? Dismantling stereotypes from both inside and outside the faith, Muslim, Actually shows that while we may think we know all about Islam we are often wrong about even the most basic facts.

Bold and provocative, Muslim, Actually is both a wake-up call for non-believers and a passionate new framework for Muslims to navigate a world that is often set against them.

Muslim, Actually was previously published in 2021 in hardback under the title The Muslim Problem.
