Description from the publisher:
The central tenets of Islam are examined with lucidity and depth in this introductory guide, reference manual, and undistorted observation of the religion. Islam is presented as a spiritual training system that harmonizes believers with the divine order, thus bringing all believers into contact with one another and the world around them. The inner significance of practices such as ablution, ritual prayer, fasting, and pilgrimage is discussed as are selections from the Qur'an in the original Arabic and details on Hadith.
