A Very Short IntroductionDownloadable Audiobook - 2004
Islam features widely in the news, often in its most militant versions, but few people in the non-Muslim world really understand the nature of Islam. Malise Ruthven's very short introduction contains essential insights into various issues such as the major divisions between movements like the Shi'ites, the Sunnis and the Wahhabis; and the central importance of the Shar'ia (Islamic law) in Islamic life.
