Islam has often been in the news in recent years, and many things have been said about it, both positive and negative. But some of these statements reflect a very limited or flawed understanding of what Muslims really believe and how they behave.This book has been written to outline the worldview, practices and history of Islam, to help non-Muslims understand their Muslim friends and neighbours better. Topics covered include the Islamic sacred books and articles of faith, the key religious observances, and the differences to be found among Muslims. The story of Islam is traced from its beginnings in the 7th century to the present. Non-Muslims who read this book will gain a greater understanding of why Muslims think and act as they do. They will also be able to avoid some of the difficulties involved in relating to Muslims and communicating with them. Patrick Sookhdeo is the Director of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity and International Director of Barnabas Fund.
