In Reclaiming Jihad: A Qur'anic Critique of Terrorism, ElSayed Amin presents a detailed critique of institutional and legal definitions of terrorism. He engages the Qur'an exegetical tradition, both classical and contemporary, to critique key verses of the Qur'an that have been misread to establish violence as a relational norm between Muslims and non-Muslims. This pioneering work is a sustained scholarly attempt to separate Islamic jihad, as well as the notion of armed deterrence, from modern terrorism through the examination of the 9/11 terrorism attacks, and it proposes legal proscriptions for terrorism from the Qur'an, on the basis of its political, social and psychological impacts.
