“Understanding Islam” Please respond to the following questions:
Qur’an plays a central role in Islam alongside the life and teachings
of Muhammad. What is the Qur’an? What is its role in the life of
Muslims? According to Islam, what makes the book different from all
other books of scripture (give 3 examples)?
and Muslims appear frequently in the American news media.
Unfortunately, much of the coverage portrays the religion and its
followers in a negative light. Choose one misunderstood Islamic
issue/belief/practice often emphasized by the media. Then discuss how
this issue is actually addressed/practiced in Islam. What steps could
both Muslims and Westerners do to foster a better understanding of Islam
in the West?
