Understanding Islam: An Introduction to the Muslim World

By: Lippman, Thomas W.

Language: English


«An excellent overview of the world's youngest major religion.» - Los Angeles Times

Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world today. A little over thirteen centuries ago, the prophet Muhammad converted a few Arab tribes to the belief in a single god, Allah, thus founding the religion of Islam. Within a century, that belief created one of history's mightiest empires - and today Islam continues to shape events around the globe.

«Understanding Islam» offers an informative and insightful introduction to Islam both as a religion and as a political-economic force. it tells the story of Muhammad and the rise of Islam; outlines the sacred book, the Koran; explains «the five pillars of faith»; explores the interplay between religion and government; describes the differences that divide Islam; and above all, shows the influence of Islam on world affairs.

Covering everything from Islam's earliest root to today's power politics, «Understanding Islam» is essential reading for both students and all who seek a clearer understanding of the world in which we live.
