A Concise Encyclopedia of Islam draws a balance in its. presentation, as it aims to offer objective coverage of all the. different branches and movements within Islam, including the Sunni, Shi'i and Sufi traditions.

I have one other, 'A Concise Encyclopedia of', book by One World Press. It's about the Baha'i Faith. Which was my first book from One World Press, it helped me discover and understand my new Baha'i faith. anyway, The Thematic Index in the back contains, Books and Writings, Languages, Beliefs, Terms and Concepts, Festivals, Groups and Organizations, Cultural Items, Legal Terms and Concepts. Places and Geographic Locations, Persons, Ritual Terms and Concepts and Prayer Terms and Concepts. If you hear something you don't understand. You can quickly and easily locate the information in this book. There is also a Chronology section which can be useful.

I was very disappointed with this encyclopedia. I found more Shia information and not a comprehensive study of Shia & Sunni information. This book needs a disclaimer on its description.

Covering everything from Adam to Zakariyyah, this concise reference

guide is designed specifically for readers and students who wish to learn more about the world's fastest-growing religion. Fully illustrated, the book contains hundreds of alphabetically arranged entries, which give succinct yet authoritative information on everything from the Qur'an and its origins to the role of Islam in the USA. With even-handed coverage of the different schools of belief, and a timeline and guide to further reading, this is an indispensable and inexpensive guide to the Islamic faith (Publisher).

Brevity in description and presentation may be a laudable feature in a

concise encyclopedia. Elaboration is sometimes required to block

distractions and ambiguities. For instance, the book mentions Shii

as a group as opposed to Sunnis. But it falls short of explaining (under the entry on Sunnis and Shi'i) what doctrines of each group are. Sunni

Muslims believe that Islam is based on five pillars, namely, the profession of Faith or Iman, Salat or prayer, Saum or fasting, Zakat or alms-giving, & Hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca. In addition to these five pillars, Shii also consider Imamate (leadership of the descendants of the Holy Prophet, and their infallibility), Jihad (the holy war) and Taharah (cleanliness) as the pillars of Islam.

A Concise Encyclopedia of Islam draws a balance in its

presentation, as it aims to offer objective coverage of all the

different branches and movements within Islam, including the Sunni, Shi'i and Sufi traditions. The entries in this book explain key historical moments, pinpoint important geographical locations, define concepts from jihad to the Hajj, and outline the achievements of figures from Rumi to Malcolm X.

The best part of the book which I enjoyed reading is that which avoids controversial issues. The book does not take sides in its coverage of the existing shades of opinions. This is the greatest strength of the book, at a time when the Muslims, the followers of Islam, are more sinned against than sinning. The book strikes the balance and presents events in their true light. The balancing approach of the book makes it a useful resource.

Besides, the book is low priced and handy in size. Given its utility as a handy annotated dictionary on Islam, it can be acquired by public libraries and area study institutions specializing in religious studies.
