The tenets of Islam cannot be grasped without a proper understanding of the Qur'an. In this important new introduction, Muhammad Haleem examines its recurrent themesÂ -- life and eternity, marriage and divorce, peace and war, water and nourishment -- and for the first time sets these in the context of the Qur'an's linguistic style. Professor Haleem examines the background to the development of the surahs (chapters) and the ayahs (verses) and the construction of the Qur'an itself. He shows that popular conceptions of Islamic attitudes to women, marriage and divorce, war and society, differ radically from the true teachings of the Qur'an.

The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation (Reference Edition - Parallel Text)
The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation sheds new and much needed light on the message of the Qur'an; light hitherto impeded by dogma originating entirely outside the Qur'anic narrative, but required by Traditionalist Islam. Traditionalist Islam claims: â€“ That the Qur'an may be understood only by reference to a later literature called the hadith â€“ That, taken together, the Qur'an and the hadith provide the foundation for what is called Islam â€“ That Islam is a religion in the sense of prescribed dogma, rite and custom â€“ That by adhering to Islam one aligns oneself with the guidance contained in the Qur'an â€“ That Islamâ€™s emphasis on a Caliphate under Sharia Law originates in the Qur'an The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation illustrates where and how such claims â€“ as well as others Traditionalist Islam makes â€“ are at unambiguous variance with the Qur'an. The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation employs a systematic method of lexical evaluation, one which accepts the ...

Kaltner presents Islam as first and foremost a religion of practices. Showing the deep humanism of Islam and its most cherished commitments, Kaltner presents Islam through assertions that counter frequent misconceptions of the faith.

The Bible predicts in the last days a charismatic leader will establish a global following in the name of peace. Islamic prophecy also predicts that a man will rise up to lead the nations, pledging to usher in an era of peace. Islam's savior is called the Mahdi. However, the man in the Bible is the Antichrist. Joel Richardson s stunning research and analysis suggest the Mahdi and the Antichrist may actually be one and the same. In The Islamic Antichrist, Richardson exposes Western readers to the traditions of Islam and predicts the end times may not be here. Richardson s revelations will stun readers who are unaware of the similarities between the Antichrist and the Islam s expectations about a returning Jesus.
