Abstract

Attitudes toward disability and disabled people by Muslims— focusing on attitudes in the Middle East and North Africa—and Christians—focusing on the West (here taken to mean Europe and the Americas)—were examined through a grounded theory literature search, with the study being divided into three phases of reading and analysis. The aims of study were to develop a dialogue on disability between the two faiths, to inform an understanding of the attitudes to disability, and to inform the social practice of promoting support and equality. The study finds that Islam and Christianity have much in common and are a force for good in promoting and developing disability equality by both Muslims and Christians.
