Every religion intends to teach doctrines that create peace and harmony. Learning to understand ones religion is the key towards a peaceful world.


Reisterstown MD – WEBWIRE

Every human being, regardless of religion, deserves respect.

The vastly different views on major points of ideology and theology of the two largest religions in the world, Christianity and Islam, have created a wide gap and have affected the relationship between these two denominations. In this book, the author describes how Judaism and Christianity have affected Islam and how the Bible left a great impact on the Qur’an. The beautiful poetry and artfully crafted stories in the Bible and the Qur’an, which are considered as legendary masterpieces, are also being compared. The author presents in a very lucid manner how the Qur’an was inspired, and in a captivating style, analyzes dozens of books and texts in different languages including Arabic and Hebrew.
 
The book centers on the sacred things the Qur’an teaches, and also its importance as the main source of inspiration for hundreds of millions of people. The author clearly compares the text of the Qur’an to other texts and influences before it. In a remarkable way, he makes linguistic comparisons and demonstrates the etymology and the source of the words used in the Qur’an. The beauty of Moslem customs and rituals, the importance of holidays, and their historic inspiration are also described in a manner to make the readers understand and relate. The author then concludes that true Islam is based on divine precepts made at creating a peaceful world and dispels most if not all of the myths about Islam especially the impression that Islam is somewhat a violent nation.
 
This is a must read book for everyone regardless of religion. It encourages readers to look at Islam and its origins from a historical and intellectual point of view. It gives hope that we can see a better world where most religions can live in harmony with each other, for the sake of preserving peace.
