Islam The Religion and the People Summary ☆ 2 Ace and jihad How does the faith regard non Muslims What are the differences between Sunni and Shi'a What does Islam teach about the position of women in society What does Islam say about free enterprise and profit What caused the rise of radical Islam What are the problems facing Muslims in the US and Europe and what are the challenges posed by those minorities. In these tumultuous complex sometimes frightening times I find great comfort in understanding why and how things happen I am so glad I got Islam The Religion and The PeopleBy way of analogy learning about Islam through this book is like my experience with learning Spanish I was surprised to find in a language that at first seemed so foreign many commonalities between English and Spanish Both of these languages evolved from the same roots and once the similarities are perceived the differences are better understood and a sensitivity to nuance and cultural elements embedded in the language its flavor begins to developSo has been my experience with this book which in the Introduction notes our common rootsJudaism Christianity and Islam sometimes referred to as the Abrahamic religions are closely related All arose in the same area where each drew on its predecessors all three share many important doctrines and attitudes that mark them off from the other religions of the world p 2From this point through comparison and contrast with what we know from our own religious foundations the depth and complexity of the Islamic world and how it fits into the whole world unfolds There is so much I am learning about Islam that I did not know in exploring it deeply I am also deeply exploring Christianity and JudaismBeyond understanding ourselves in relation to followers of Islam this book helps us understand the pros and cons of secular and sectarian forms of government and affords a glimpse into why establishing a democratic government in Ira has been so impeded and fraught with peril Which form of government is better when populations are mixed as is the case in most of the world secular religion and the laws by which we are governed are kept separate or sectarian the rule of law is grounded in religion These are uestions Americans should deeply consider before they walk into a voting boothNon Muslims may think of Islam as being a one size fits all faith just as there is a tendency on the part of non believers and the fundamentalist believers alike to perceive Christianity and Judaism in the same narrow way Nothing could be further from the truthI thought I was ahead of most Americans in knowing that followers of Islam can be Shia or Sunni and that these two are enemies of each other but this book shows that it s far complex than that Just as within Christianity there are Baptists Methodists Episcopalians Catholics Pentecostals and others plus numerous gradations within each so there are within Islam And just as there are different interpretations of the US Constitution some of which ignore the changes and modernizations we have experienced over the last several hundred years so there are different interpretations of Sharia Islamic law I am finding this knowledge most helpful in trying to sort out the simplifications we are fed through the dumbed down often propagandized American news mediaFinally this book may have a profound effect on people s sense of their own faith I write from the perspective of one raised Southern Baptist who converted to Judaism in my mid twenties then abandoned both religions for a private and eclectic spirituality because of the bigotry and intolerance I encountered among the true believers those who tend to congregate and hold themselves separate from and above everyone else Like many people who just don t know any better because they have not been exposed to the complexities of the greater world I judged the religions themselves by the limited beliefs of the relative few adherents I encountered and rejected them But the labels agnostic and atheist never fit meReading this book has actually strengthened my own beliefs and grounding in spirituality and I have a renewed appreciation for the place of religion in our world The scales have been lifted from my eyes I can see past the tiny narrow and uber radical Christian Muslim and Jewish interpretations that have obscured the beauty depth and wisdom of these three great world religions We have many values in common and it is these values not any one religious interpretation that we must look to as we work to secure save and grow our world We must also respect our differences and seek to understand why those who are different from us might react to us the way they doWe must find common ground starting within our own country This book helps us do just that

    Review Islam The Religion and the People Pdf/E–pub Islam The Religion and the People Bernard Lewis ´ 2 Review This book is a somewhat striking and unusual one in that it attempts to present an authoritative and somewhat favorable view of Islam and its adherents to a Western audience that may not be very sympathetic to Islam  To the authors' credit they acknowledge the reasons for the gulf between the West and the Muslim world and manage to present the difficulties as well as the potentials for harmony between the two worlds well withou
