Подробнее Ph.D. Group The Must Know Guide to the Qur'an for the Western World

The Qur'an: is it a book of terror or a book of peace? A divinely inspired text or a political agenda for jihad, sharia law, and global domination? How is one to know the truth about the Qur'an? Where does one even begin a personal study? With the growing global interest in Islam and the teachings of the Qur'an, Islam's main source and foundation, the need to provide an objective tool to investigate the truth about Islam as a religion and way of life has become crucial. This scholarly work is a valuable beginner's guide. Designed to provide readers with background information and address important issues raised in the Qur'an, it enables readers to better understand Islam and its impact on Muslim communities. The Must Know Guide to the Qur'an for the Western World is a modified version of The Qur'an Dilemma (Volume One), and contains most of Parts I and III of this earlier publication (2011). The content in both The Must Know Guide to the Qur'an for the Western World and The Qur'an Dilemma represent the effort and production of many former Muslim writers, Islamic specialists, scholars, editors, researchers, and translators. To non-Muslims who want to unravel the mysteries of Islam, this book presents information that Islamic resources rarely disclose—to allow those seeking the truth to comprehend the full picture with all its outlines, colors, and dimensions. To Muslims who seek genuine choices far from the culture of "indoctrination," this book opens a world of understanding to them, so that they can decide for themselves their intellectual and spiritual paths.
