How can Islam reconcile itself with the 21st century? This No-Nonsense Guide explains the Islamic worldview, examining the Qur'an and Islamic law (sharia), Islam in history, and Islam's relationship with the West. The authors analyze the struggle within the faith for a more humane and holistic interpretation of their religion, and examine issues surrounding women's rights, economic development and democracy.

This is a balanced portrayal of 'real Islam', looking beyond common perceptions and polemical debates. It show what Islam has achieved and shows why a better understanding of Muslims is needed throughout the world. But it also explains why Islam needs to make itself more relevant by showing it can create a just, tolerant and peaceful society.

Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.

Commendations

For anyone who wants a lucid, factual, reliable guide to some of the most important issues of our time, I strongly recommend you check out the No-Nonsense Guides.

Howard Zinn, social activist and author of A People's History of America

The No-Nonsense Guide to Islam is a warts-and-all guide to the complex world of Islam. Sardar and Davies show what Islam has achieved; and what it is capable of achieving. They suggest how both Islam and the West can transform themselves to see each other as fully human and capable of laying the foundation for a just world order.

Dr Ghayasuddin Siddiqui, Director, The Muslim Institute, London, UK

New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the struggles, projects, and people who are working to build a better planet.
