Islam is the most maligned religion in the West. The Western view of Islam is rooted in centuries of mistrust, ignorance, and stereotypical attitudes—the inherited biases of the pre-modern clash of civilizations. This small book can do much to edify those concerned citizens in the West about the beauty and truth of Islam.
Alone among the world’s religions, Islam is not just surviving but flourishing. Yet many people know little about Islam and regard its continuing attraction as something of a mystery. In this book, Du Pasquier, an award-winning Swiss journalist, provides a thorough introduction to Muslim belief, history and culture.
The basic knowledge provided by this book will help Muslims to gradually become more intimately acquainted with their religion and to partake of a blessing pervading all their life with heavenly power, beauty and honour.
