Dribbling for Dawah: Sports among Muslim Americans

From the description:

“This is the first book to investigate Muslim American sports at the local level, looking at Muslim basketball leagues, sports programs at mosques and Islamic schools, and sports events hosted by Muslim organizations.

Drawing upon personal interviews and observations as well as scholarly sources, this book demonstrates that participation in sports activities plays a vital role in strengthening Islamic piety and fellowship, and in connecting Muslims with non-Muslims in post-9/11 America.

Because of these roles, this book places Muslim American sports within the trajectory of the Muslim "dawah movement,” part of a worldwide revival with particular momentum for many Muslim Americans since 9/11.“
