The essential introduction to Islam by a leading expert

Hardly a day goes by without mention of Islam. And yet, for most people, and in much of the world, Islam remains a little-known religion. Whether the issue is violence, terrorism, women's rights or slavery, Muslims are today expected to provide answers and to justify what Islam is – or is not. But little opportunity exists, either in the media or in society as a whole, to describe Islam: precisely the question this short and extremely accessible book sets out to answer. In simple, direct language it will introduce readers to Islam, to its spirituality, its principles, its rituals, its diversity and its evolution.

Very instructive book

 on 2 August 2017
By Othmane Lahlou
Tariq Ramadan has covered a little bit of everything related to contemporary Islam, in an academic way, which explains why he is professor of contemporary Islamic studies at Oxford university. I enjoyed reading what I already know about Islam. Good read, I recommend this book.

An excellent and balanced overview

This is an excellent, brief introduction to Islam for those of who are not Muslims. It clarifies much, and addresses many misconceptions. I hope it is widely read.
