Islam: Faith, Practice & History

Islam: Faith, Practice & History

The book in your hand is an introductory treatise on Islamic beliefs,laws and ethics as well as the early history of the faith in fifty lessons.These lessons were part of the Islamic Correspondence Course that Icompiled, wrote and edited for the Islamic Education and InformationCentre, Toronto, in the early nineties.

The course consists of three parts: Part I (twenty lessons) on Islamictheology outlines the basic beliefs of the faith; followed by Part II (fifteenlessons) on Islamic jurisprudence explaining the spiritual and financialissues as well as the social and familial aspects of life; it concludes withPart III (fifteen lessons) on the brief history of the first three centuriescovering the lives of the Prophet Muhammad, his daughter, Fātima, andthe Twelve Imams of Ahlul Bayt (peace be upon them all). Each lesson isfollowed by a question paper.

Besides my own writings, the sources used in preparing this coursehave been duly mentioned at the end of each lesson. Nonetheless, Iwould like to acknowledge here the writings of my late father ‘AllāmahSayyid Saeed Akhtar Rizvi, the board of writers of Dar Rāh-e Haqq Insti-tute (Qum, Iran), the late ‘Allāmah S.M. Husayn Tabātabā’i, andAyatullāh Nāsir Makārim Shirāzi. I also would like to thank Br. HaiderAli Khoja, a lecturer at Humber College, for preparing the question pa-pers for the initial lessons which helped me in preparing questions forthe remaining lessons in the same pattern.

I pray to the Almighty Allāh that this book may prove as useful andhelpful for seekers of truth as did the Islamic Correspondence Course which soon became popular on a world-wide basis: an Islamic Centre inHouston, Texas, included it in its tablīgh program for new Muslims; aprominent organization in the United Kingdom plans to put it on-line;and the Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania has translated it into Swahiliand has included it as the intermediary level of its correspondencecourses.
