Just a note: there are a couple points where differences in views exist. In one or two of them, he takes a weaker view, but overall, if you are a muslim and you dont have this book, you should be clicking on the buy button
Author talked about Islamic way of insurances but what if there is no way of getting them where you live. I was also looking forward to learning more about interests on Mortgage payments when you can't afford to buy a house on cash. Also I wasn't really convinced with Fiqh on Meat while Halal Meat is pretty much available everywhere.
Apart from these and some similar personal issues with the book, you should at least read it once to understand the Rulings better especially living in a non-Islamic country.
You will learn that fornication (zina) is haraam (punishable sin). You will learn that alcohol and gambling are abominations of Shaytaan (Satan). You will learn that the woman may wear gold but the man is forbidden to wear the gold; it is haraam for the man to wear the gold because it is like a hot burning coal from the hellfire on is skin.
You will learn that if the man cannot keep from the zina, then he must get a wife. With the wife is halaal (permissable), without the wife is sin.
The Christian will benefit from reading this book too. Many things that God told to Christians, God also told to Muslims.
This book is very good to know about Islam; another good book is by Abdalati and the title is Islam in Focus. After a Muslim reads these two books and reads translation of Quran, then he will know his and her religion. Too many Muslims do not know about Islam.
