What Everyone Should Know About Islam and Muslims (Paperback)
by Suzanne Haneef (Author) http://www.amazon.com/Everyone-Should-About-Islam-Muslims/dp/0935782001
Written by an American Muslim, this work presents a brief yet comprehensive survey of the basic teachings on the significance of Islam's central concept, faith in and submission to God. It introduces the reader to how Muslims feel about various aspects of life, how they worship, and how Muslims living in the West practice their religion
Etiquette with the Quran
by Imam al-Nawawihttp://islamicbookstore.com/b7652.html
An enduring classic work (composed by the illustrious Imam al-Nawawi) on the etiquette that a Muslim should have with regard to handling, teaching, studying, respecting, and reciting the Quran. The topics this volume raises include: ritual cleanliness, opportune times for recitation, the etiquette that students have with their teachers (and that teachers must have with their students), and a variety of other issues that every Muslim should know and often ask about.
Bright to Light
Bridge to Light (Thanks Sr. Kathy!)
Kathleen St. Onge
Bridge to Light is a unique contemporary contribution to the literature about Islam and an important new voice in interfaith dialogue. In this unusual approach, a Canadian convert to Islam recounts her reflections through a journey of understanding. Originally written as a series of articles, this teacher and writer navigates readers through everything from the basic tenets of the Islamic faith, to the Islamic way of life, Muslim beliefs about heaven, hell, and Judgement Day, the ego trap, ‘jihad,’ evolution, and the oneness of God.
Delivered in a distinctly western style, the book presents ideas which are surprisingly accessible and it assumes no prior knowledge of Arabic or Islam. It should appeal to Muslims of all ages—especially youth—who want to discover or develop their faith. The book should also prove helpful to Muslims wishing to explain their religion to non-Muslim friends, co-workers and neighbours. Beyond this, it is recommended reading for spiritual “seekers” who may be wondering what it is, exactly, that Islam has to offer. At this time in history where the need for interfaith tolerance has never been greater, Bridge to Light really does provide a bridge of understanding.
