Publisher's Summary

lslam is currently the most discussed religion in the Western world, and yet it is also the most misunderstood and misinterpreted. Despite frequent news coverage, we remain poorly informed about the true beliefs at the heart of Islam. How many of us would be able to explain who the Prophet Muhammad was or what the Quran actually teaches? 

In this profound yet highly accessible book, practicing Muslim Mamoon Yusaf provides a vital introduction to the essential teachings of Islam. In each short chapter, he focuses on a core teaching from the Quran, such as loving kindness, resilience, gratitude, and forgiveness, and shares his unique insight into how these teachings can lead to spiritual evolution in anyone, regardless of their beliefs, religion, or background. Mamoon also considers the role of women in Islam, as well as the true nature and meaning of the words jihad and Shariah. Finally, touching upon current events, he demonstrates how acts of violence committed in the name of Islam are inherently un-Islamic and boldly concludes not only that Islam is not the cause of terrorism - Islam contains the cure for it.

Great. Chapter 10 is off

The entire book is quite enjoyable. The author needs to further think chapter 10. It is off.

Enjoyable, thought-provoking listen

I honestly loved this audiobook. The older I get, the more introspective and spiritual I've become. Mamoon takes you on his journey of spiritual growth but also reviews basic concepts in Islam and clarifies any misconceptions one may have. I related a lot to his upbringing where he was told the "what" but not the "why". He reviews concepts that my friends and I of various faiths discuss regularly. If you are on your spiritual journey, no matter your religion, this book is for you. The psychological concepts he explains are universal. And it has opened my mind on how my emotional state influences my thinking. His voice is easy to listen to, definitely draws you in and doesn't make you feel like you're in a boring lecture. A must listen!

I've been left enriched by this book

Great insights that are useful to those who know nothing about Islam as well as those of us who were born into and raised in Islam... too many gems and bookmarks that I will revisit. An audiobook I'd highly recommend and listen to again and again. Ja za killah bi alf kheyr Mamoon

The spiritual essecence of Islam

This book will take the listener into the mystical and spiritual teachings of Islam. It uses modern psychological terms to describe deep spiritual truths have been apart of Islam for the past 1400 years. May all spiritual seekers listen with an open heart to gain understanding of this peaceful world religion that was revealed to the world by the mission and life of the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him.

A great book!

An interesting, beautifully poetic, and wonderful look into Islam and the beliefs that Muslims hold. In truth, I found it quite in line with certain aspects of Judaism!

A must-listen book for those interested in understanding Islam. The narration is also wonderfully calming.

Very Well Written

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Mamoon Yusaf did a very good job in conveying his points so the average person can understand. This is one of the few books I'll be revisiting every so often.

faith is not dogmatic it's personal

very interesting, poignant, & inspiring book encouraging you to reconnect to The Creator. the spirit resonates beyond a specific religion, although Islam is the focus of this book. the idea of the outside in & inside out is fascinating but nothing new for those familiar with psychology. I really enjoyed accompanying the author on his spiritual journey.

From the inside out

An enlightening book which does not miss out on its beauty, even after multiple reads.
