Publisher: ICAS PRESS
$26.00

Islam is one of the world’s major religions. Its continued success, from the early days up to the present, during the course of fourteen centuries, is due to a multitude of spiritual, religious, intellectual and ethical factors. The course of its development, and the factors contributing to its spread took place in the full light of history and can be fully substantiated by authentic documents. We know as much about Prophet Muhammad, the Qur’an, Islam and its spread, as we do about any person, book or phenomenon in history. A scholar does not therefore need to resort to assumptions, legend and mythology. This book helps the reader understand the processes involved in the spread of a religion that numbers countless adherents, in different parts of the world and among various nations, peoples, tribes and races. It is a fairly comprehensive introduction to the history of Islam, dealing mainly with the major factors contributing to its spread. This book has been translated into several languages, including Turkish, Persian, Arabic and Hausa. This is the fourth revised edition. A. Ezzati was born in Iran in 1932. He studied at the universities of Tehran and London. Later he became a professor of Islamic Studies at Tehran University. He has also held teaching positions at several centers of advanced Islamic studies in the UK and the USA. He has written several books on Islam in English, Persian and Arabic, some of which have been translated into Arabic, Turkish, Hausa, Russian, Spanish and Persian. His book Islam and Natural Law is also published by ICAS Press.
