Perhaps one of the most misunderstood religions in the world is Islam and that is due to many biased reports in the media and negative depictions in Hollywood films.

Furthermore, extremists and radicals of the religion, a small fraction of the 1.8 billion Muslims in the world, have created a depraved idea of Islam vs. Western civilizations, adding to the misconception that Islam is a violent religion.

Many literary and Muslim scholars successfully attempted to explain the faith by correctly interrupting the Quran and many Hadiths, rectifying the views of many and therefore, to understand the truth behind this religion, we recommend the following books.

1. The Quran, translated by M.A.S. Abddel Haleem

2. "Understanding the Quran" by Muhammad Abdel Haleem

3. "What Islam is All About" by Yahiya Emerick

4. "Islam: A Short History" by Karen Armstrong

5. "Islam: The Straight Path" by John Esposito

6. "Islam: Religion of Life" by Abdul Wadod Shalabi
