    An Introduction to Islam for Jews

    [align=left] Reuven Firestone, "An Introduction to Islam for Jews"
    Jewish Publication Society of America | 2008 | ISBN: 0827608640 | 336 pages | PDF | 1,9 MB

    From Publishers Weekly
    Firestone provides a balanced introduction to Islam that will be helpful for all beginners, but particularly for the Jewish readers for whom it is intended. The first part offers a survey of Islamic history, with special emphasis on the interactions of Jews and Muslims throughout (and an entire chapter devoted to the violent relations in seventh-century Medina). Firestone extends a real effort to be fair to both sides; in his discussion of Muhammad's massacre of between 600 and 900 Jewish men, for instance, he reminds readers that the Jews had committed treason and points to examples in the Hebrew Bible where Israelites engaged in similar tactics. Part two digs into the foundations of Islamic law and belief, discussing the Qur'an, the prophetic tradition, key doctrines and sharia law. The final, and perhaps most interesting, part explores Islam in practice. Firestone undertakes an in-depth discussion of the Five Pillars of Islam, finding much common ground: like Muslims, Jews have an ancient tradition of praying at set times; early Muslims, like Jews, fasted on the 10th day of a particular month.

    "This book provides the Jewish reader with a valuable tool: a readable, comprehensive, and reliable introduction to Islam with special attention to issues relevant to Jews regarding past and present events and attitudes... This authoritative and readable book is of value for students and general readers alike." --Rachel Simon, Princeton University, AJL Newsletter, November/December 2008

    "In the post 9/11 world, a text that explains the historical background and fundamental tenets of Islam in a readable and detailed way is sorely needed. An Introduction to Islam for Jews succeeds admirably in fulfilling this need." --Multicultural Review, Winter 2009
