This 74-page publication written by I. A. Ibrahim is widely used by Muslims in their efforts to cast Islam in a favorable light, and to gain converts. It is well produced on glossy paper in a soft-cover booklet form, and attractively laid out, with many illustrations. It is available free of charge, can be read on its own dedicated website, and can also be freely downloaded as a pdf file. The campaign to spread Islam is evidently well funded. The real issue, though, is its message. Does it present mainstream Islam accurately?

Muslims believe that the Qur'an is literally the words of Allah, and apologists now claim that among the revelations Prophet Muhammad received, there was scientific knowledge far in advance of his time.
