Description
The aspects of modern Islam can appear too diverse to allow any concrete definition, yet it remains one of the least sectarian of the major religions, held together by stronger ties than almost any other world group—the annual hajj to Mecca, for example, typically attracts more than a million Muslims. This guide explores the role of Islam, past and present, in forming the contemporary world of literature, science, art, architecture, and scholarship. It provides an overview of the state of Islam today and sheds light on the current conflict in the Middle East and the division between Sunni and Shiite sects.
