This is Islam offers readers an introduction to one of the world's major religions, its philosophies, and how it affects the world today. Geared to those unfamiliar with the religion and its rituals and customs-and written in clear and simple terms by one of the United States' leading scholars of religion-this volume explains Islamic law, major figures and sects, and the role of mysticism. This is Islam is designed for classroom and course supplement use. The focus is early history, not Islam today, but the book has been designed to help readers understand more recent events, keeping in mind that one of the most remarkable features of Islam is that, with a single significant exception, all lands to which it spread have remained Muslim into modern times.
