Islam is scary. Muslims are scary. Or so many westerners think, and after the recent history of terrorism carried out by Muslims in the name of Islam, one can understand it if that is all they know about approximately 1.25 billion people on the planet, or about one in six people on Earth. Islam is more than just a religion as the term is usually seen in the west by most people. It is a whole way of life and is central to a Muslim's existence. But is this scary? Fear can often be explained by ignorance of the other and I hope that this little book will help in a small way to spread a little more knowledge of Islam and its followers and help to bridge a widening gap between Muslims and the societies in the west where they live.
