Description from the publisher:
This booklet is an outstanding presentation of the studies, ideas and suggestions of the author in a simple language pertaining to Islam and the Muslims in Japan.
Mr. Muhammad Abdur Rahman Siddiqi of Pakistan is a well known Muslim Scholar in Japan. Mr. Siddiqi is acquainted with me for about 20 years in Seminars, Symposia, and international gatherings from time to time. I have always been impressed by his devotion and dedication to the cause of cultural friendship and close relations between Japan and 1.6 billion Muslims of the world. I appreciate his contribution to the cause of world peace through talks, writings and media communication.
I recommend this study to all those who are interested in promotion of the lofty aims set by the author in his prologue given in his book. I wish Mr. Siddiqi all success and hope that Islam, Muslims and Japan will cooperate and shine together.

It is easy to forget that Japan has any Muslims other than those from embassies or businessmen passing through. Japan seems to be almost equally at home with Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. This book provides an easy to read introduction to Islam. The author, well known and respected, knows both Islam and Japan.
