Summary

lslam is currently the most discussed religion in the Western world, and yet it is also the most misunderstood and misinterpreted. Despite frequent news coverage, we remain poorly informed about the true beliefs at the heart of Islam. How many of us would be able to explain who the Prophet Muhammad was or what the Quran actually teaches? 

In this profound yet highly accessible book, practicing Muslim Mamoon Yusaf provides a vital introduction to the essential teachings of Islam. In each short chapter, he focuses on a core teaching from the Quran, such as loving kindness, resilience, gratitude, and forgiveness, and shares his unique insight into how these teachings can lead to spiritual evolution in anyone, regardless of their beliefs, religion, or background. Mamoon also considers the role of women in Islam, as well as the true nature and meaning of the words jihad and Shariah. Finally, touching upon current events, he demonstrates how acts of violence committed in the name of Islam are inherently un-Islamic and boldly concludes not only that Islam is not the cause of terrorism - Islam contains the cure for it.

It is transformative!

If I wasn't Muslim already , Mamoon's book would have opened the doors to Islam. It certainly led my heart to a deeper understanding of the true nature of life through so many unexpected insights. The narration is very engaging which makes it easy to follow the book all through to the end. What I love the most is the easy way Mamoon connects to everyone and humorously clarifys concepts that have been misrepresented in the media. I've listened to Inside the Soul of Islam more than once and a couple of chapters several times. May your efforts be blessed Mamoon.

Thoroughly Accessible

The beauty of this book is its accessible to anybody, it doesn't go on long tangents about theory nor does it push Islam down your throat but rather it is relatable, reflective and insightful leaving you to make up your own mind on how you feel.

I've been left enriched by this book

Great insights that are useful to those who know nothing about Islam as well as those of us who were born into and raised in Islam... too many gems and bookmarks that I will revisit. An audiobook I'd highly recommend and listen to again and again. Ja za killah bi alf kheyr Mamoon

faith is not dogmatic it's personal

very interesting, poignant, & inspiring book encouraging you to reconnect to The Creator. the spirit resonates beyond a specific religion, although Islam is the focus of this book. the idea of the outside in & inside out is fascinating but nothing new for those familiar with psychology. I really enjoyed accompanying the author on his spiritual journey.

The spiritual essecence of Islam

This book will take the listener into the mystical and spiritual teachings of Islam. It uses modern psychological terms to describe deep spiritual truths have been apart of Islam for the past 1400 years. May all spiritual seekers listen with an open heart to gain understanding of this peaceful world religion that was revealed to the world by the mission and life of the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him.

A beautiful book on the true Soul of Islam

I truly loved listening to this insightful book. This is the Islam I grew up with, the Islam I was taught in school and at home, the Islam I've always known. Thank you for reminding us of our true values, the ones we need to continue to adhere to as a community.
