For over 1,400 years the sacred book of Islam, known as the Qur?an, has served as an ocean of wisdom and nourishment for the human soul. The Qur?an gave birth to one of the world's most powerful civilizations that spanned from the depths of Asia and Africa to the borders of Europe. Some historians have even credited the Qur?an for bringing Europe out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance with its interwoven ideas of faith and reason, which allowed religion and science to flourish side-by-side during much of Islamic history. For many in the West, teachings of the Qur?an are enshrouded in mystery and fear. Their only exposure to Islam comes via dramatic world events or the media, both of which represent distorted images of the world's second largest religion. This book presents the foundational wisdom of Islam, found in the teachings of the Qur?an and Prophet Muhammad, in an easy-to-understand and easy-to-access format.
