A Brief Illustrated Guide to Understanding Islam
5 thoughts on “A Brief Illustrated Guide to Understanding Islam”
This book was a joke. How incredibly disappointing! It was focused on trying to prove that Islam is a valid religion and the Koran directly the work of God from him. The explanations made me more skeptical and wary of the entire Islam religion. According to the logic in this book, Nostradamous is a prophet of equal stature to Mohammed and should be revered. Nostradamous’ quatraines were written in a similar style and can be interpreted to say he is predicting history and scientific principles that he could never have known in his time period. I am not against Islam, but this book really gave me a negative attitude, since it was trying to prove itself more than just expounding on what the beliefs are and what Islam is all about….

This book is a slick paper booklet of propaganda. I did not find it to be any kind of reasonable guide to the Islamic religions. It explained nothing to me about a various Islamic sects such as Sunnie or Shi’ite.The first chapter purporting to provide evidence of the truths of Islam was illogical and superficial. Of course, the paragraph about the status of women in Islam is utterly ridiculous from what I have seen and read in various news media. Don’t waste your money on this book as you will learn little or nothing about Islam from it.

This Islamic guide is for non-Muslims who would like to understand Islam, Muslims (Moslems), and the Holy Quran (Koran). It is rich in information, references, bibliography, and illustrations. It has been reviewed and edited by many professors and well-educated people. It is brief and simple to read, yet contains much scientific knowledge.

This book is excellent overall! It talks about many issues, though briefly. It even talks about what Islam says about Jesus Christ, treatment of women, muslim faith and beliefs, and Terrorism! Lots of pictures, although mainly in the ‘Scientific Miracles’ section. It, amazingly, has 12 editors! One more good thing is the extensive reference section.

Simply beautiful. But as a presentation of Islam to non-Muslims I think that the aim (or authors intent) was to portray Islam as something “modern” – and not some inapplicable way of life – by those references to scientific facts in the Holy Quran.
The overall presentation could be better if (1) the authors put a bit more into the section on prophecies – specifically Duet 18:18. (and therefore Isaiah 29:12). (2) more was taken from Jamaal Ad-Din (a co-author) from his book “He came to teach ou your Religion” with regards to the informaiton on the belief and practices of Islam – which in my opinion was done slight injustice.
My criticsm is that Islam should not be presented *mainly* from a scientific (ergo, modern) p.o.v. but from its own p.o.v. — the beliefs and practices need to be presented because that’s what has always attracted people to Islam.
