"I have reviewed the book, 'Easily Understand Islam' [compiled by F. Kamal] and have found it to be an excellent overview of Islam and the way of life it promotes. Using an easy to digest format, Mr. Kamal offers a glimpse into all the major themes of this world faith as well as tantalizing details written in a lucid style to captivate the interested reader.
