Overview

Reza Aslan's International Bestseller "No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam" was published to critical acclaim in 2005 and has since been translated into thirteen languages. Named one of the 100 most important books of the last decade by Blackwell Publishers, "No god but God" has been praised by the New York Times as "grippingly narrated and thoughtfully examined...a literate, accessible introduction to Islam." Now, the book that Los Angeles Times calls "an eloquent, erudite paean to Islam in all its complicated glory" is available for the first time in a Persian language version translated by Arash Azizi.

Beginning with a vivid account of the social and religious milieu in which the Prophet Muhammad forged his message, Aslan paints a portrait of the first Muslim community as a radical experiment in religious pluralism and social egalitarianism. He demonstrates how, after the Prophet's death, his successors attempted to interpret his message for future generations-an overwhelming task that fractured the Muslim community into competing sects. Finally, Aslan examines how, in the shadow of European colonialism, Muslims developed conflicting strategies to reconcile traditional Islamic values with the realities of the modern world, thus launching what Aslan terms the Islamic Reformation. He also goes into great detail about the Iranian revolution and the future of democracy in Iran.

Timely and persuasive, No god but God is an elegantly written account of a magnificent yet misunderstood faith, now finally available for Persian readers of all ages.
