    Great way to research quickly and simply.

    This is a simple way to get information quickly. Very rarely have I wanted more detail than is offered in the Spark Chart. Even then, the Spark Chart has been a solid beginning to continue further research.

    Everything you ever wanted to know about Islam - and more!

    As a born Muslim, I thought that a SparkChart would have nothing to offer me, especially since I consider myself quite knowledgeable about the tenets and history of Islam. Boy, was I wrong! There is so much packed into six pages, including a lot of detailed information I haven't seen anywhere else. It's a great introduction to the faith for someone unaware of the worldview of a Muslim, but its also remarkably enlightening for Muslims to own as well.

    Must have for students of Islam

    This essential guide is a systematic overview for anyone who wants to consider themselves culturally literate in Islamic studies. The guide covers Islam's founding, the holy texts, theology, history, and more. Though just 6 pages, it is jampacked with well-written information. The design and layout make for an enjoyable, comfortable reading reference.

    Outstanding!

    Extremely comprehensive--it's perfect. The best bit of lit to summarize Islam in its entirety. My compliments to the writer of this Sparkchart.
