The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Understanding Islam, 2nd Edition

  • ISBN13: 9781592572724
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
An up-close and up-to-date look at an often misunderstood faith.

This completely revised and updated guide explores the tenets of the Qu’ran (a.k.a. Koran), examines the history of the religion and its relationship to Christianity and Judaism, and features an expanded section on the true story behind “jihad.” It explores Islamic views on war and terrorism, including the Muslim perspective on the tragic events of September 11, and the subsequent U.S. presence in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

• Excellent sales for the first edition
• Islam is the fastest growing religion in America, with more than six million devoted followers
• Features an expanded section on women in Islam, including their status within the Taliban, and the Islamic practice of polygamyAmazon.com Review
It may surprise readers to discover that Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world, according to The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Islam. “However, even more eye-opening is the fact that Islam is the fastest growing religion in North America,” writes author Yahiya Emerick (How to Tell Others About Islam). Paradoxically, Islam is also one of the most misunderstood and maligned religions in North America. Fortunately, Emerick has written a viable antidote to the widespread confusion and ignorance. Using the Idiot’s Guide‘s formula of questions and answers, sidebars, and small, easy-to-digest essays, Emerick makes Islam accessible to anyone who is inclined to learn more about this influential religion. Readers have much to glean from this comprehensive and balanced guidebook–primarily that Islam is a prayerful, peace-loving religion that has been misused in the name of terror, just as Hitler and other extremists have misused Christianity throughout history. Emerick devotes an entire section to “Looking at Women in Islam,” in which readers can sort through even more misconceptions. The Idiot’s Guide title belies the integrity of the book, which is an important contribution for our times. –Gail Hudson
