Author Syed Ali looks to restore true ideals of Islam after centuries of distortion
SYDNEY, Australia– There are close to 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide, and according to the Pew Research Center, Islam is the fastest growing organized religion. Despite the continued spread of Islam, misconceptions and misunderstandings of Islamic teachings often tarnish the reputation of the entire belief system. In A Closer Look at Islam, author Syed Ali looks to stop the spread of misinformation, educating critics and believers alike on the history and ideology of the world’s second largest religion.
His book dispels false allegations against Islam, examines the difficulties in understanding the Quran and the complexities of Islamic history, and helps the reader understand the true teachings of the faith. Additionally, Ali’s work showcases material in an unbiased manner and thoroughly counters slanders of Islam.
“We’ve seen a steep rise in Islamophobia in recent times, with false claims arising from plain ignorance,” Ali said. “This has resulted in negative attitudes towards the Muslim community. Critics seem to be unaware that over time, Islamic history has failed to crystallize into one uniform version. A Closer Look at Islam attempts to explain the teachings of Islam from material that is acceptable to all Muslims.”
