Description from the publisher:
This primer on Islam addresses the information needs of non-Muslims interested in learning about the fastest-growing religion in the world and also guides young Muslims--especially those living in Western societies--who want to learn the basics of Islam.
Reviewing the fundamental principles, beliefs, and practical aspects of Islam, diverse topics are covered, including morality, good and bad deeds, personal characteristics, rights and obligations, women's rights, Islamic law, sectarian differences, and relations with other religions. A brief history is provided as well as a discussion on how some Muslims, through their practice, have deviated from Islam's true purpose and meaning.
