The timeless insight of Islam's sacred writings can enrich your own spiritual journey.
For many in the West, the teachings of the Qurâan often are enshrouded in mystery and fear. Yet Islamâs holy book gave birth to one of the most powerful and enlightened civilizations the world has ever seen. By the sixteenth century, Muslim culture stretched from India to Africa to Europe, preserving with it the ancient learning that helped spawn the Renaissance. With its interwoven ideas of faith and reason, justice and mercy, the path of Islamâwhich literally means "surrendering to Godâs will"âoffers a uniquely focused and balanced approach to living life with a profound awareness of God.
With gentleness and insight, Sohaib N. Sultan leads you through the central themes of both the Qurâan and the collected sayings of Prophet Muhammad, known as hadith. These teachings dispel common misconceptions about Muslim beliefs and offer practical guidance for your own spiritual journey, from understanding the merciful nature of God; to cultivating peace and justice in the self, family, and society; to answering questions about the afterlife and how to attain it.
Now you can experience the wisdom of Qurâanic teachings even if you have no previous knowledge of Islam or Muslim writings. Insightful yet unobtrusive facing-page commentary explains the texts for you, allowing you to enter into the path of surrender to God.
