Description

This book focuses on the religious life rather than the history or theology of Islam. A series of central figures or topics are studied to give students an insight into the religion and the people who practice it. In the third edition a complete update accounts for major historical, political and religious developments that affect Islam, as well as recent scholarly research and thinking on the religion. Two new chapters explore the Islamic community in doctrine and practice and its identity in urban settings. The final chapter is thoroughly revised to examine crucial events and the future of Islam. This book should be of interest to degree and diploma students on courses of religious studies focusing on Islam; a history of political science courses where a background in the Islamic religion is essential.show more
