"Islam is the one true religion taught to mankind by a series of Prophets, each of whom brought a divinely-revealed book--The Torah, the Psalms, the Gospels, and finally the Qur'an, which was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him). It is with this final manifestation--that is with the teachings of the Qur'an and the Hadith--that this book of readings is concerned. Its purpose is to show how Islam's spiritual and religious precepts speak to all humanity, and reflect Islam's place in world religion. Each of the extracts has been chosen to exemplify an important aspect of the Prophet's teachings, and the commentaries (prepared under the guidance of leading Muslim scholars) bring out the salient and significant points of doctrine and belief."--Dust jacket

Stories of the stranger : encounters with exiles and outsiders by Martin Palmer( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Encompassing scriptural, historical, folk, and newly commissioned tales, a collection exploring the centrality of the stranger in every major faith traditiona commonality that could create a more compassionate world Every faith has, as a fundamental moment of its formation, the experience of exile, the experience of losing everything, or being thrown out, of being dispossessed, and of relying on the generosity, or not, of strangers. Furthermore, every major faith tradition has popular stories showing how you are more likely to meet the divine in the outcast, the reject, the beggar, than you are in the king, the prince, or indeed minister, priest, or nun. Faiths are therefore often the first to welcome and help refugees. Classic tales on this theme have been retold here from a contemporary perspective, with humor and wit. Sitting alongside powerful illustrations, the tales serve to remind readers of the centrality of the stranger in all traditions, thereby creating the potential for a more compassionate world. This collection is a resource for reflection, ideal for storytelling groups, for drama, art, and poetry, and a unique educational tool as well
