About the Book

This book tries to remove various cobwebs around Islam and Islamic teachings. Islam has become the centre of controversies today due to some extremist elements in the Islamic world and manipulations by vested interests. There is an urgent need to understand Islam in the right perspective if we have to deal with more than one billion people who profess the faith. It is no easy task and needs not only an in-depth study of Islam but also of current political developments in the Islamic world and various interests working therein.

Dr Engineer strongly advocates that Islam is a religion of harmony, peace and coexistence. While dealing with the life of the Prophet, he depicts Him as a man of non-violence by deep conviction.
