What Is? Series

Part of our Islamic Civilization and Muslim Networks series, the “What Is?” books are concise, accessible, and engaging introductions to some of the most key–and least understood–concepts in Islam. The distinguished, well known authors of these books approach their topics with an evenhanded style that is anchored in sharp cultural insight and rich historical context. Directed at general readers, as well as teachers and students, these books expand understanding by bringing together a wide range of scholarship and firsthand experience, always keeping in view the vast geographical and cultural diversity of Muslims around the world.
