“If Allah Wills” ("enshallah" in Arabic) connotes the hope that God is in control of our lives and world events. Philpott maintains his own deep Christian faith but presents this book in love for Muslims and non-Muslims to consider aspects of Islam as found in the Qur’an and other traditional texts and practices and compare them to Jesus of the Bible and history.
