Taking the same approach as "The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Bible", Sheik Sarwar presents an overview of The Koran written with the knowlege of a scholar who not only understands but also regularly teaches it. Presented thematically, the book not only explains the "flow" of The Koran, but also what it has to say about Allah and humanity, virtue, justice, life on earth, the afterlife, women, love, unbelievers, faith and tradition. "The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Koran" also explains how and why Muslims study The Koran in the original Arabic. With background on Muhammad and The Koran's historical influence, this book provides readers with a succinct, unbiased overview suitable for anyone who wants to better understand this document: the cornerstone of Islam.
