The Religion of Peace

Ishtiaq Hussain Qureishi

This book is posted in order to provide a brief introduction to the religion of Islam, and its conception of peace in particular. Written during the hectic era of the Gandhi movement and world war, it attempts to provide a non-controversial overview of some of the features of Islam. As such, it is hoped that both Muslims and non-Muslims interested in the truth of Islam will find it a useful resource.
