History of Islam by Frances O'Connor( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
The story of Islam begins with a humble man who was devoted to practicing kindness towards others, and it continues with millions of followers in many countries. Islam is an intricate, beautiful, sophisticated, morally scrupulous world religion that asks its followers above all to be mindful of others in their community. Most Muslims are peaceful people who practice a religion that calls for personal responsibility and a commitment to being a good and kind person in the world. It's no surprise that a religion as morally and ethically engaged as Islam is still a powerful force in today's world. It is responsible for uniting individuals and families in the pursuit of the values of kindness, compassion, and responsibility to others that Muhammad exemplified over 1,300 years ago. Its vivid history is not forgotten as it grows into other areas of the world, and its story continues today even when new cultural contexts result in Islam's ongoing evolution and adaptation to local circumstances
