What People Are Saying
"An intelligent, daring, and much-needed contribution to the debate about Islam in the modern world. Harris Zafar has written a remarkable book."
— Reza Aslan, author of Zealot and No god but God
"Harris Zafar is an insightful and often inspiring writer who leaves readers feeling richer for having spent time with his work."
— Omar Sacirbey, correspondent for the Religion News Service
"Harris Zafar's book is both enlightening and informative. Demystifying Islam aims to deflate misconceptions of Islam, breaking them down to their essence and offering honest reasoning and historical context behind their existence. A great resource for practicing Muslims as well as those looking to gain a better understanding of one of the world's major religions."
— André Carson, Congressman
"[A]n excellent starting point for people navigating interfaith relationships or working to improve understanding and representation in organizations and public discussion."
— Publishers Weekly
"[T]he book is a welcome correction to the politically tortured conceptions of Islam so prevalent today, as Zafar astutely acknowledges the way even Muslims themselves have contributed to these misunderstandings. An important, original new examination of Islam for both the novice and the theologically sophisticated."
