Understanding Islam

Understanding Islam

A Primer

BY IDRIS TAWFIQ

Brief Description:
In Understanding Islam, Idris Tawfiq explores the Islamic faith from a unique perspective: that of Roman Catholic priest turned Muslim scholar. In an engaging style, the core tenets are laid out. The author draws widely on recent cultural phenomena in the West to examine the wider role of religion in an increasingly secular region of the world and he illustrates the many and various and unexpected prisms through which Islam can be observed. He argues that Islam, far from contributing to any clash of civilizations, serves to embody spiritual enlightenment and tolerance, enabling Muslims and non-believers to live in a state of mutual understanding.
