Islam is the religion of one in five people on earth. Five times a day millions of people-from Cairo to California, from Damascus to Paris and Manila-face Mecca to pray. Yet, Islam is, without doubt, the most misunderstood of all religions. Unfortunately, what people think they know is invariably wrong, often horribly wrong-a creation of an ethnocentric media fueled by a very unrepresentative group of alleged Muslims. This book is an effort to create a better understanding and improve our education about Islam. Topics covered include: God and religion, prophethood and revelation, judgement day and life after death, personal practice and spirituality, women is Islam, Islam and democracy, the concept of jihad, Muslim's perspectives on life as well as many contemporary issues facing Islam and Muslims.

"The Forbidden Rumi" and I Rumi is a great Muslim mystic and poet. His faith in God does not deter him from riding the winds of dangerous thinking and free expression. His most audacious poems were published in a collection called "The Forbidden Rumi." I have chosen one of them and interspersed its verses between the chapters of my book. I wanted to let some fresh air in my dry discussion of the Quranic text. You see, the fifth chapter of the Quran was the last one to have been composed. It discusses theological questions and lacks the poetic rhythm of the much shorter chapters of the early days. I am neither a poet nor a mystic. I am not even a Muslim. And yet I feel I have something in common with a Rumi. I do not let the requirements of Islamic tradition, the strict rules of modern scholarship and the taboos of our time constrict my freedom to say what I think and to explain my forbidden views. I do so however in a friendly manner and without any animosity. My study of the Quran is based on knowledge not on faith. My purpose is not to provide spiritual ammunition to the faith. It is much more prosaic. I propose a new way of reading the Quranic text. Instead of seeing in it a divine revelation, I see in it the work of a man called Muhammad. I do what is forbidden for a believer. But I recognize the believer's right to see in the Book the very words of God.

500 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON THE WORLD'S MOST MISINTERPRETED RELIGION Fully revised first edition. Islamic history and anecdotes are part of everyday conversation in the Arab world. This book provides a fascinating journey into one of the biggest and probably most misinterpreted religions via anecdotes and facts about Islam and its history, the Qur'an, the prophet Muhammad and his traditions, the Dos and Don'ts for Muslims, and how Islam spread around the world, summarised in 500 questions and answers, which the author has derived from his own experiences. The author has lived in North Africa and the Middle East for ten years and immersed himself in Islamic culture and society. He gradually learned the things kids in the Arab world already know, but most people in other parts of the world never heard of, by talking to his neighbours, teachers, scholars and ordinary people in the street. This book explains Islam in its complexity. The author also addresses current topics: Islam in the West, women's issues and Jihad. It can be read without knowing Arabic. However, the author provides the fully vocalised Arabic source in addition to the English translation, which may be beneficial for Arabic speaking readers.

This book, Allah: Understanding God in Islam, apart from describing what Islam is, explains that all prophets sent by God, including Prophet Abraham, Prophet Moses, and Prophet Jesus (Jesus Christ), were Islams prophets too and that Muslims must believe in them. The book specifically informs readers that Allah is the same God of every human being of any race, culture, or religion. The book delves into the messages of the Quran, Islams Holy Book, to highlight the importance of knowing the true nature of God, called Allah in Islam. It points out that the proper knowledge of God would compel people to adhere to His commandments in having faith in Him and His practical guidance to acquire a close and rewarding relationship with Allah and His creations as well as with all human beings, who, though diversified in various nationalities and faiths, can be united in spirit and togetherness. The book also emphasises that following Allahs guidance with understanding would facilitate people to appreciate the natural gifts Allah has given to every person and so, instead of getting overwhelmed by ignorance and falling into the trap of hatred and hostility, enable them to live a happy, peaceful, and harmonious life.
