A Deeper Look
We live in confusing times. When it comes to learning Islam, many wonder,
"Where do I start?
"What should I start with?"
This book presents content that is both reliable—based in Islamic scholarship—and not obscured in jargon and difficult terminology. It was designed to include what every Muslim should know as well as those things that are essential to a proper understanding of the overall vision and spirit of Islam.
'Being Muslim' uses the Narration of Gabriel (Hadith Jibril) as a basic framework, that covers
- The Basic of Islamic Belief,
- How to pray and Fast,
- Spiritual refinement,
- A brief examination of the life of the Prophet Muhammad,
- An introduction to the Qur'an,
- Guidelines for living an Islamically ethical lifestyle.
- Includes a glossary of frequently used Islamic terms,
- an appendix of short selections from the Qur'an, and
- a list of recommended reading.
From the foreword by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
"All of the great learning that Muslims displayed throughout their history was always predicated on a foundational, core knowledge that the great usuli scholars of Islamic jurisprudence called fard 'ayn, or 'the individual obligations."
"This short book has that little amount of individually responsible knowledge necessary for a new Muslim or an unlearned Muslim rediscovering his or her religion. Dr. Asad Tarsin has rendered our community an important service by designing and writing a concise, useful, and accurate manual of core knowledge that every Muslim should know. It is a basic manual, and much needed in our time of great ignorance from within and without the Muslim community."
