Islam in practice can often seem opaque to the outside viewer. New Muslims and non-Muslims alike look on as believers offer salah, attend Friday prayer, wear the hijab, and fast during Ramadan, not knowing the particulars of why or how these acts of worship are performed. If you are a new Muslim, or just a curious observer wanting to know more about Islam, then this book is for you.
Islam from Scratch attempts to bridge this wide gap in knowledge, helping readers understand the Islamic faith
step by step, chapter by chapter. For new Muslims, this book hopes to provide you with the most critical information
when taking your irst steps into the faith in a way that will not overwhelm you. By the end, hopefully you will not
only understand your newfound belief and the intricacies that thread it, but also appreciate the rituals and history
that come with it.
“Richey successfully puts down his feelings and insights from his own experiences as a revert. He simpli
ies Islam and how to practice it for new Muslims with accurate resources and explanations.”
