A concise Guide to Islam



Islam, in its many forms, is constantly in the news. It is a key factor in world events, guiding to a greater or lesser extent the actions of Muslim-majority nations and of Islamist groups around the world. It is also a growing, visible presence in many countries where Muslims are a minority. Much is said and written about Islam, both positive and negative. But what do Muslims themselves think and do? A Concise Guide to Islam has been written to give non-Muslims an insight into the worldview, practices and history of Islam. The aim is to enable readers to understand their Muslim friends and neighbours better and avoid some of the pitfalls and miscommunications that can occur when non-Muslims seek to build relationships with Muslims.
