 The fifth edition of Islam: Beliefs and Teachings was published in June 1998. This edition saw a number of corrections and amendments to the text. It is one of the best-selling children’s and adult books on Islam in the world (196,000 copies printed), giving a comprehensive introduction to the religion in an affordably priced and well-produced volume. It is ideal for young Muslims, new Muslims and non-Muslims who want an easy-to-read overview of the final revealed religion. Many schools and Islamic centers now use Islam: Beliefs and Teachings as a standard text. Now, in its sixth printed edition, presents Islam as a complete way of life, expressing clearly and concisely the basic beliefs, duties and teachings of Islam. It presents the key aspects of the life of Prophet Muhammad (saas) and short sketches about some of the prophets. It gives an overview of the rightly-guided Caliphs, and brief details of the lives of some prominent Muslim women. It gives an outline of Islamic Shari’ah, Islamic guidelines on dress, food and drink, family life, marriage, the status of women and the political and economic system of Islam. It includes a selection of verses from the Qur'an and Ahadith. It is, perhaps, the first attempt to incorporate the essential aspects of Islam in one book. It is increasingly used as a text book in secondary schools. It is read in almost all parts of the English-speaking world.
