Islam is one of the world's most widespread religions. Its monotheistic teachings emphasize unity, humility, forgiveness, and love of God. The Qur’an identifies knowledge and rationality as virtuous qualities. The life of Muhammad demonstrates the importance of tolerance, social justice and brotherhood. But Islam is often associated with hatred, violence, obstinacy, and bigotry.
What Do Muslims Believe? presents an accessible and incisive explanation of the roots and beliefs of Islam.  Parsing fact from misstatement in elegant prose, Ziauddin Sardar gives a clear-eyed view of what makes a Muslim; where Muslims come from and who they are today; what, exactly, they believe and how they reflect those beliefs; where Islam is headed; and how one could apply Islam to his or her life. With a useful chronology of Islamic history from A.D. 632 to the present, a glossary of terms, selections from both the Qur’an and the Hadith, as well as a list of further reading, What Do Muslims Believe? is a primer for anyone who wants to understand what it means to follow Islam.
