New My52WOW Book Club Pick: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Koran

As this is the holy month of Ramadan for those who practice Islam, I thought it would be a good time to spend some time learning more about the religion. For those who know about My 52 Weeks of Worship – in the first 52 weeks, I visited several Muslim worship communities, but I have yet to read the Koran/Qu’ran/Quran/Kor’an, which is something I would like to do. (One of the first things addressed are the many spellings of the book as listed above and why this book chose to go with the spelling: Koran)

In preparation for reading the Koran, I thought I would humble myself and pick up the new My52WOW Book Club Pick: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Koran. It provides an explanation of the Koran, about Islam and its origins and┬átenets, shares information about the life of the Prophet Muhammad, and discusses issues related to Islam in the modern day.

I have read only the introduction and the first two chapters, and already I have learned a great deal and am glad that I picked up the book! I realize, of course, that it is only one book, and one source, but so far so good. I encourage you to read it with me and let me know what you think!
