Summary

Summary

A simple, explanatory guide to Islam's central text.

Taking the same approach as the bestselling The Complete Idiot's Guide(r) to the Bible, this book presents a balanced overview of the Koran, explaining not only 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.
