Islam is a monotheistic religion that is unique in that it is also holistic. It has a system of inter-related beliefs that are organically linked to the observance of a set of ritual practices. Together, they guide human beings’ relationship not only with their creator, Allah (the Most Glorified and Exalted), but also with His most noble creation, fellow human beings. Thus, Islam regulates believers’ spiritual quest to move ever closer to Allah as well as their secular responsibilities toward others, believers and non-believers, and to the environment that they share with other mammals and plants.
The message of Islam is thus truly inspiring but, unfortunately, that message has been lost to the general public.
This collection of essays is intended to bridge the gap between the reality of the Islamic message and its popular misperception. While each essay stands on its own, collectively they explore the salient aspects of Islamic faith and practice as well as key traits and contributions of its prominent leaders during the formative period of its history.
The essays are more than simply a statement of facts; they seek to go beyond and provide an explanation of the logic behind those facts. It is hoped that the reader will thereby gain a deeper appreciation of Islam and its leading personalities, and come to look upon Islam as a magnificent religion and its leaders as principled worthy, respectively, of respect and emulation.
A beneficial read for anyone who wishes to study more about Islam.
