About the book:

This is one of the most valuable introductions to Islam we have read. Even though it was written by a Christian missionary whose purpose was to educate other Christians on Islam (in order to more successfully convert Muslims, since previous attempts proved failures), Hughes shows an excellent understanding of the Islamic creed. In this book, he explains the various aspects of Islam and its creeds and practices, covering not only Sunni Islam but also other sects such as the Shiites and the Druze; such a comprehensive introduction is rarely found even today. He also introduces readers to Islamic theological terms and explains their meanings.
