The origins of this conceptual paper have their roots in over a decade of experience as both an academic and a practitioner involved in social work with Muslim populations in the UK and internationally. The manifold and eclectic sources of inspiration encountered over the years finally culminated in a co-authored book (Islam and Social Work: debating values, transforming practice), with my colleagues Drs Fatima Husain and Basia Spalek, which was published last summer. I have since had the opportunity to discuss our research findings at a keynote lecture under the auspices of the Journal of Practice Teaching and Learning; the main points of which are explored in a greater detail here. The rather venerable cliché of a journey, used in the title of this paper, nevertheless aptly describes the circuitous and sometimes tortuous routes that led me to a greater understanding and appreciation of Islamic perspectives in welfare. This useful motif here encompasses both the personal and the professional pilgrimage, in which one has underpinned and informed the other.
