Overview

Islam has gained a much higher profile in recent years, especially following the horrific attacks of 9/11 and the turmoil of the Arab Spring. But such extreme events offer us only a limited insight into what Muslims really believe. We need to know much more about Islam if we are to engage sensitively with Muslims in our communities and wider society.

In this book, Dr Patrick Sookhdeo has provided a comprehensive introduction to Islamic theology. He looks first at how the core texts of Islam were used to develop Shari‘ah, the detailed system of law that governs the lives of Muslims. He then considers the core beliefs of Islam, which make up the Muslim creed that unites the worldwide Islamic community.

Dr Sookhdeo focuses throughout on how Muslims have understood their religion through history and how they practise it today. He also highlights some of the key differences between Islam and Christianity, especially regarding the Trinity and the person of Christ.

This one-stop guide to what Muslims believe will be invaluable to students, researchers and academics in this fascinating field. But it will also be useful to Christians seeking a working knowledge of Islam to enable them to share Christ effectively with their Muslim neighbours
