The timeless insight of Islam's sacred writings can enrich your own spiritual journey.

For many in the West, the teachings of the Qur’an often are enshrouded in mystery and fear. Yet Islam’s holy book gave birth to one of the most powerful and enlightened civilizations the world has ever seen. By the sixteenth century, Muslim culture stretched from India to Africa to Europe, preserving with it the ancient learning that helped spawn the Renaissance. With its interwoven ideas of faith and reason, justice and mercy, the path of Islam―which literally means "surrendering to God’s will"―offers a uniquely focused and balanced approach to living life with a profound awareness of God.

With gentleness and insight, Sohaib N. Sultan leads you through the central themes of both the Qur’an and the collected sayings of Prophet Muhammad, known as hadith. These teachings dispel common misconceptions about Muslim beliefs and offer practical guidance for your own spiritual journey, from understanding the merciful nature of God; to cultivating peace and justice in the self, family, and society; to answering questions about the afterlife and how to attain it.

Now you can experience the wisdom of Qur’anic teachings even if you have no previous knowledge of Islam or Muslim writings. Insightful yet unobtrusive facing-page commentary explains the texts for you, allowing you to enter into the path of surrender to God.

Sohaib N. Sultan is available to speak on the following topics:

  • The Qur'an and Its Place in Muslim Life

Jane I. Smith is professor of Islamic studies and co-director of the Macdonald Center for Christian-Muslim Relations at Hartford Seminary in Connecticut.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"`Islam does not support violence, but is a religion of peace.'... In recent years, and particularly since the tragic events of 9/11, Muslims in the West have tried to affirm all of this and much more about the texts and traditions that guide their lives and rule their hearts. Listen, they say, and let us tell you about true Islam, its beauty and its power to give those who would listen to its call a guideline for life and a key to entering into the presence of God....

"The task of explaining and interpreting Islam in its many forms, but with its firm foundation in the Qur'an and traditions of the Prophet, is indeed challenging. This book by Sohaib N. Sultan rises to that challenge."
--from the Foreword by Jane I. Smith
