Everything you always wanted to know about Islam -- but didn't know to ask!

What does it mean to be Muslim in America? Ask ten different people and you'll probably receive ten different answers. Islam is as dynamic as it is misunderstood, and has been in a state of constant change and development for almost fourteen hundred years. So how can you reconcile being a teenager in America with being a Muslim? It's not as difficult as you might think!

Written by teens for teens, The American Muslim Teenager's Handbook covers everything from basic Islamic history and reading the Quran to addressing the issues of drinking and dating, and also includes thoughts and opinions from Muslim teenagers across the country. Positive, informative, and honest, here is the indispensable primer -- for Muslims and non-Muslims alike -- for learning about and finding a place in Islamic American culture today.

I bought this book thinking that it would be good gift for my kids. After reading it it came to decide not to give it to them because it would cause more damage than helping them. Its full of misleading information. Vollständige Rezension lesen
