Horrible

Just read the Quran. The narration is so bad that I couldn’t get past chapter 2 as she did no justice for the subject.

Informative!

If you could sum up Islam for Beginners in three words, what would they be?

n/a

Which scene was your favorite?

All!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Islamic Rituals and its practices.

Any additional comments?

Muslim individuals and families live around the world in many different countries and practice their faith in similar ways. Cultural variations such as type of dress and rituals for weddings may vary, but fundamentally Muslims are governed by the same principles found in the Qur'an. Of note is the fact that in the year 2000, the number of Muslims surpassed the number of Christians in the world. This may mean that Islam will be more visible in years to come in Western cultures. Insights and information about religions and practices can be a helpful way to facilitate more visibility and understanding.
