By Malcolm Clark
Many non-Muslims have no idea that Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews, and that Islam preaches compassion, charity, humility, and the brotherhood of man.
Whether you live or work alongside Muslims and want to relate to them better, or you simply want to gain a better understanding of the worlds second largest religion, this book can help you better understand this religion and its appeal.
From the Quran to Ramadan, this user-friendly guide introduces you to the origins, practices and beliefs of Islam, including Muhammad, the man and the legend; the Five Pillars of Wisdom; the Five Essentials beliefs of Islam; the different branches of Islam and Islamic sects; the Quran and Islamic law; and Islam throughout history and its impact around the world.
Professor Malcolm Clark explores the roots of Islam, how it has developed over the centuries, and its long and complex relationship with Christianity. He helps put Islam in perspective as a major cultural and geopolitical force.
He also provides helpful insights into, among other things: Muhammad, the Quran and the ethical teachings of Islam; Muslim worship, customs, and rituals surrounding birth, marriage, and death; Shiites, Sunnis, Sufis, Druze, and other important Muslim groups; and Islam in relation to Judaism and Christianity.
