Description from the publisher:

Islam, argues Akbar S. Ahmed, does not mean the subordination of women, contempt for other religions, opposition to the modern world or 'barbaric' punishments for petty crime. Yet outsiders can learn to appreciate the beauty, depth and variety of Islamic tradition only by returning to its sources. Islam Today starts with the life of the Prophet Muhammad and the Qur'an's 'five pillars', which govern the beliefs and behaviour of Muslims everywhere. It goes on to show how the great Ottoman, Safavid and Mughal empires have deeply marked the successor states in Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India, and explores how the Muslim minorities in the West struggle to maintain their identities and ideals in uncomprehending or hostile environments. Ahmed explores these issues with insight and sympathy, penetrating beyond the stereotypes to the realities of Islamic life.
