Description from the publisher: Written for the general reader and researcher, The Concise Encyclopaedia of Islam assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. Detailed cross-references lead the general reader into deeper knowledge of Islam, whatever his starting point. Many quotations and hitherto un-translated prayers support the religious and philosophical entries. Six years in preparation by a practicing Muslim, this work is the result of a lifetime’s study and a wide personal acquaintance with the Muslim world.
