The anthology responds to the growing desire among both Muslims and non-Muslims to know about the basic teachings of Islam. The Qur'an and the Haddith are two most important sources of Islamic law, ethics, and social life, and the compiler has allowed both these sources to speak directly to the readers on major topics, describing the message of Islam and the Islamic position on various human life issues.
