Distortions About Islam

All this has proven exceptionally helpful to the native Muslims in the west, the new Muslims, and all those who are searching for the truth everywhere.

The Purpose of this work is simply to acquaint the average reader with the basic teachings of Islam. It will be obvious that there is no intention to present the depth or breadth of Islam in this book. What is intended, however, is to provide the common but literate person with proper insight into the subject and help him to appreciate the principles which Islam stands for. Once he develops the initial interest, he can pursue the course of deeper knowledge on his own.
