Islam Beliefs and Teachings

Product Description
The fifth edition of Islam: Beliefs and Teachings was published in June 1998. This edition saw a number of corrections and amendments to the text. It is one of the best-selling childrens’ and adult books on Islam in the world (196,000 copies printed), giving a comprehensive introduction to the religion in an affordably priced and well-produced volume. It is ideal for young Muslims, new Muslims and non-Muslims who want an easy-to-read overview of the final revealed religion. Many schools and Islamic centers now use Islam: Beliefs and Teachings as a standard text.

Islam Beliefs and Teachings


  1. I know of a person who became Muslim after reading this book due to its simplicity. It is widely used in Islamic schools and very simple to get into. I used it when I wanted to return to practising Islam and it made it all seem very clear. Well worth it for young Muslims and for those new to Islam. Highly recommended. H

  2. I love this book, it introduces important terms in Arabic by using transliterations and stresses the importance of learning Arabic. The book clearly and accurately introduces Islam and it’s five pillars. Mr. Sarwar does a very good job on giving details in areas that warrant them (i.e. Salat).

    One of the best parts of this is the different review questions at the end of each chapter that are organized according to age range, it makes sure that the right things are learned according to the age group. I use all the questions to review and I’m 27!

    Well worth getting, even if it is used or new! Paying full price would not be something you would regret.

  3. I first picked up this book under the age of ten. Since then, I must have read it two or three more times, purchased several copies to give to friends and family, and recommended it as a primary textbook for Islamic curriculums. The author Ghulam Sarwar does a great job of summarizing all the essentials – a great read for anyone interested in the religion or someone looking to expand their own interest in their religion. There’s nothing in there to disagree with – highly debated issues are simply omitted. He leaves that for other books. 5 stars.

  4. Probably the best of its kind. Simple and easy to understand it covers the basics of Islam including a detailed description of the washing before the prayer, the prayer with both the Arabic, transliteration and translation. Picture diagrams are also featured in how to perform the prayer. Chapters of the Quran are also translated with transliteration and a brief biography of the Prophet Muhammad is also included.

    For the price, this is well worth the money and highly recomended to anyone wanting to know the basics of the Muslim faith.

  5. Most excellent book – the usual one I recommend to everybody as it is very easy to read and understand, and doesn’t generally go over people’s heads when it comes to terminologies and the like. This is the same book I send people who are interested in Islam or give as presents to those who do not know that much about it, both Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Highly recommended. The only bad point out of the whole book is the fact that they have a small error in one of the transliterations for the surahs – specifically surah (chapter) masad (number 111) where it misses one letter. Aside from that, it is a great book. for [the price], what more could you ask for?
