Ideals and Realities of Islam
It is a unique and simple book within the tradition. There are very few English books which treat Islam from its own point of view, from within the tradition written for the Western reader interested in Islam and also to the Muslim who has received a Western education. The author seeks to answer, from the Muslim standpoint, many of the criticisms brought against the Islamic tradition by Western Orientalists. The book’s content is the truth of Islam as revealed in the Qur’an as followed by generatiqps of devoted Muslims, but its language is contemporary. It is easy to read, but there is no simplification and it is altogether reliable. In this book the Western reader, who knows little or nothing about Islam and who wishes to learn, will find just what he needs.
“It is to be hoped that this admirable book will have the wide reading it deserves, in the East as well as in the West.” – Islamic Quarterly
“A unique and simple book within the tradition. It certainly merits attentive reading and digestion.” -World Faith
