Description from the publisher:
Concept of Islam is a straight-forward presentation of the fundamental beliefs of Islam, the life of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and the events leading to his establishment of an Islamic state governed according to the divine principles of the Qur'an. In the West, this religion has been so associated with propagation by the sword, oppression of women, and social backwardness in the minds of misinformed individuals that it has been nearly impossible to find non-prejudiced and accurate material about Islam. As more and more Americans are coming into ever-increasing contact with immigrant, foreign-born student and American Muslims many of these earlier misconceptions and half-truths are being dispelled. This book seeks to inform Americans, who are being thrown into contact with Muslims trying to order their lives according to the Qur'an and the example left to them by the Prophet Muhammad and his companions, about Islam.
