An Objective Look Into the Religion of Islam and Muslim Sects: Their Theologies and Differences
by S. W. Guaroudi

Never before in the history of the United States has the religion of Islam come under such scrutiny and hatred. Is Islam really a "terrorist religion?" Is Islam compatible with democracy? Are there different sects of Islam; and if so, how do they differ from one another in their theologies, rituals and practice of their faith?

This book provides objective answers to these questions. It explains the basic tenets of Islam as revealed in the Qur'an and gives a concise account of the major Islamic philosophies and theologies. This is an objective account of the Muslim sects, their history, theologies and differences. It shows that different Muslim sects in different countries do not share the same understanding of Islam. It also points out that the root-causes of the conflict between the West and Muslim countries lie in the long, tenuous history of their relationship.

This book is timely and highly recommended for those who are not sure of what to make of Islam. For those who have no knowledge of the Islamic sects, their philosophies, theologies, differences, and antagonism, this book is a must-read.

About the Author

Dr. S. W. Guaroudi is a retired professor of physical sciences. He received his doctorate degree in Quantum Chemistry from the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. He taught physical chemistry and quantum chemistry courses for many years at universities in the United States and abroad.

In addition to his interest in physical sciences, Guaroudi is greatly interested in the history of the Middle East, especially the history of the great monotheistic religions and the relationship between the West and the Arab world. He realized that the majority of the Muslim Arabs aspire for freedom, democracy, and participation in governance and the development of sciences and technology. They also are trying to mold freedom and democracy into their culture and traditions of which they are proud.
