Description

To say that there are misperceptions about Islam among non-Muslims is almost cliche. This introduction to Muslim spirituality moves beyond basic information to explore what the religion of Islam means to a believer-researched and written by a believer. Using the importance of the Qur'an to Muslims as a framework, it explores Islamic history, theology and philosophy from a lived perspective. It also includes the author's own reflections to explain from a deeply personal viewpoint the appeal Islam has for Muslims. Intended to foster understanding about the Islamic faith tradition by people of all faiths, this accessible look at Muslim spirituality examines: * The Shi'ah, Sunni and Sufi communities and their approaches to interpreting the sacred texts of Islam * The role Muslims see for themselves as part of the Abrahamic tradition and the Muslim relationship to other faiths * The history of Muslims in the US and their participation in America's formation * The rise of reform and revival movements and their effects on the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds * The positive contributions Muslim individuals and organizations are making in American society and the world today * The common humanity Muslims share with people of all faiths and ways Muslim-Americans are contributing to bridging divides between faiths through interfaith dialogue and action
