What's Right with Islam: A New Vision for Muslims and the West

HarperSanFrancisco, April, 2004
by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf

With wisdom, depth and clarity, Imam Rauf examines the roots of the conflict between the Muslim world and the West, and offers a basis for rebuilding that relationship by illustrating that Islamic principles actually support the fundamental values of a pluralistic, free society, uncovering the promise of a Muslim form of democratic capitalism within the Qur'an, the stories and traditions of the Prophet Muhammad, and Islamic Law.

Focused on finding solutions, not on determining fault, this is ultimately a hopeful and inspiring book. Born to a long line of religious luminaries, Imam Rauf brings his extensive study of the sacred scriptures of Islam, along with his talent for storytelling and analysis, to bear on one of the most complex and critically important topics facing our world today.

Islam: A Sacred Law: What Every Muslim Should Know About the Shariah

by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf

A clear, concise manual explaining Shariah (Islamic) Law. This is a necessary handbook for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, interested in understanding the principles governing Islamic sacred law.

QUOTES FROM READERS

"I bought this book as part of my search to find something for my students to read on Shariah law as part of an upcoming course on the nature of religious disagreement in the Middle-East. Here is a fine work, written in simple language (though at the same time, not simplistic) that introduces the reader to the basics of Shariah law, without any clandestine attempt to define terms in favor of one camp, or issue tacit digs at other camps. This is a fine and needed work in the field. I congratulate the author."

"This is a book about Islam for Muslims that presents the faith in a practical and applicable manner. It deals with contemporary issues and presents them in a way that is truthful to the spirit of Islamic law, while enabling Muslims to live in modern society. I hope more literature like this will be published."
