About this title


This book sets out the basic framework of Islamic belief and practice. It provides a picture of the Islamic faith as an integrated whole based on the central concept of tawhid - oneness. The role of Muhammad, the Qur'an, the Five Pillars, and the family are discussed, as well as all aspects of the Islamic faith. The book discusses the origins of Islam, addresses the early theological controversies in the context of Islamic history, and focuses on the impact of Islamic belief in the modern world: in social terms, such as the role of women, and in political terms, such as the Iranian revolution.


"A sympathetic summary of many important themes in Islam... there is much of value in this book." -- The Expository Times.
