greetings to one and all!

As a lay Muslim reader and student of the faith, i have read many, and examined most, Islamic books (from bookstores and to libraries) dealing exclusively with the theology of Islam; in my search, i have found very few books that can match the dimensions and depth of Islam covered by this eminent Lahori scholar, Maulana Muhammad Ali, in this single volume, The Religion Islam.

The Maulana takes the reader on journey of Islam, using the most authentic of sources, and under the most authoritative of interpretation. The writer was undoubtedly one hundred years ahead of his time; he has addressed any and everything a believer or sceptic wants to know about the religion of Islam; from revelation to modernity; from angels to devils; from rituals and sacred practices to rights and obligations; from polygamy to apostasy, and a host of other subject.

The Maulana's magnus opus is his: The Holy Qur'an, Arabic Text, Translation and Commentary.

Caveat: the Maulana was an original founding member of the original Ahmadiyya movement, under Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, after whose death, the movement broke apart. The Maulana founded the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha`at Islam and moved to Lahore*.

English revert and translator of the Qur'an, Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall, in reviewing the "Religion of Islam" stated words to the effect that "this book has not moved a hair's breath from Islam's sacred orthodoxy."

Final note: anyone (believer, sceptic or atheist), seriously thinking of understanding Islam as a faith and as a way of life, should avail him/herself to the Maulanas' two primary publications: the Translation of the Quran, and the Religion of Islam, both of which i recommend without reservation or hestitation.

*i am NOT an Ahmadi; i'm just an ordinary seeker of knowledge on the road to Truth!

my best wishes on your search

Format: Hardcover
I am currently studying this book. I find it to be the best textbook of islam I have ever read. It will serve me as an invaluable reference for years to come. The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement, who publish it, are theologically in conformity to mainstream Islam (NOT connected with the Qadiani Ahmadiyya Movement), so I would even reccommend this book for non-Ahmadiyyas.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By muslim in md on September 6, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Some may take offense at this item, being it is written by one of the most prolific writers/scholars of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam. However, it should be noted that the book has passed the bar at Al Ahzar, and there is not one iota of anything whatsoever outside of the pale of Islam in the entire volumne. Indeed, one would be very hard pressed to find a better introduction to this most beautiful and true Faith than this book. All general aspects of Islam are covered quickly and it is written in a extremely easy to understand style. For new muslims, and especially for those who are curious about Islam, I highly recommend this work.

This book is detailed, has a lot of philosophical explanations for Islamic practices which is very helpful and interesting for anyone looking for more than basics. It is clearly written and easy to understand, but also scholarly and takes serious study to understand.

Format: Paperback
The is a wonderful treatise on Islam. Through this book one can understand and see clearly the gentle teachings of Islam (submission to God's Will). Ali does and incredible job with both this book and his translation and commentary of the Qu'ran. If you want to understand Islam there is no better book than this. Particularly if you are converting from the Christian tradition or culture.

Format: Paperback
The previous reviewer is typical of the people who operates from an ignorant base. I bet this individual had never read any books about Islam and had never spoken to a Muslim. His knowledge is purely based on what he sees in TV such as Fox news and what he hears pumped out by zealots/zombies Christians Zionists and Jews over clear channels fundamentalist radios or what he hears he preacher spews in his Sunday sermons of hate. You tend to feel sorry for this person because he is the product of our bankrupted educational system.

George Orwell wrote that people who neither read nor ask questions will ultimately lose all desire to question "Big Brother." What is so frightening as we descend into the new world order fascism is not that we no longer read -- it's that we no longer can read.

Quran was sent as a mercy to the world...to combat the self same ignorance this person is suffering from. To usher peace on this planet and to bring people together. But those who are brainwashing him are looking for the exact opposite...one needs to wonder why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
