    The Islamic faith began with a series of divine revelations, which were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in the early 7th century. Muhammad’s revelations went on to form the basis of the Quran, the holy book of Islam, and they gave rise to a worldwide faith that now numbers over1.6 billion followers. Islam has become a hotly-debated topic with the rise of militant groups like the Islamic State in recent years and al-Qaeda before them. Average Muslims around the world frequently face prejudice and even violence as a result of rising Islamophobia. But beneath the controversy is a rich and beautiful faith, full of the rituals and traditions of everyday people who pursue a meaningful life just like anyone else. If you are seeking to explore Islam more deeply, this book can serve the purpose. Islam, a Brief Look into Faith and History, aims to answer many of the common questions non-Muslims may have about the often-discoursed religion. The book addresses topics of faith and practice, as... More > well as more complicated issues like jihad and Islamic fundamentalism. This book is the right choice for anyone hoping to understand the core themes behind the contemporary uses and abuses of Islamic traditions. The history section of this book presents in a nutshell, the general political flow of Muslim history to better understand the present-day conflicts in the Middle East. The benefits and wisdoms of Islam are not just for Muslims, but for all mankind. Muslims often try to explain that Islam is more than a religion. They contend that Islam is actually a ‘way of life,’. From marriage and family life to lawful food and drink, from modesty in dress and excellence in social manners to ethics in trade and finance, Islam encompasses all aspects of our existence. This book is a step towards promoting harmony, peace, tolerance, and coexistence among the nations. Reviewer: Adnan Mahmood Usmani, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia< Less
