Introducing Islam

For some time now there has been a need for an introduction to Islam, presented in simple and concise language, which might provide children with fundamental religious instruction and also be useful to adults who want to understand the teachings of Islam. By the grace of God Maulana Wahiduddin Khan has authored a book of this nature in this book. It consists of five parts, the names of which are as follows: The Way to Find God, The Teachings of Islam, The Good Life, The Garden of Paradise and The Fire of Hell. Introducing Islam provides the general reader with an accurate and comprehensive picture of Islam—the religion of submission to God. In the first section it is shown that the true path is the path that God has revealed to mankind through His prophets. The second section provides an introduction to various aspects of the Islamic life under forty-five separate headings. Quranic teachings have been summarized in the third section in words taken from the Qur’an itself. In the fourth section the life that makes man worthy of Paradise has been described and in the last section the life that will condemn him to Hell-fire.
