Synopsis:
Islam today counts one billion people as adherents or believers. Its teachings produced a civilization that has flourished for fourteen centuries. Islamic identity exerts a potent force around the globe, though Muslims are often stigmatized by Westerners as a religious threat. Presenting the Islamic concept of justice, this book is an introduction to contemporary Islamic thought and practice, offering a catalyst for dialogue and understanding.
