Islam: The Key Concepts (Routledge Key Guides) Reviews
This is essentially a dictionary of Islamic terms and concepts. Very handy for anyone who wants to take a serious look at Islam. Given the current state of the world I think we all should become students of the many facets of Islam. This is a good place to start.
"Islam: The Key Concepts" is like a mini-Wikipedia about Islam except that it is written by two actual scholars rather than random people. It is comprised of 123 entries about concepts ranging from practices (salat, zakat, jihad, haram), to beliefs (tawhid, paradise, hell) and Qur'anic themes, to theological, legal debates and intellectual currents, etc. Every entry ends with suggestions of other related concepts to look up.
