A KKK member, an internet junkie, a Catholic missionary and a woman who read over 1000 books are just some of the 28 remarkable people featured, who also describe the challenges of acceptance by family and 'fitting in' to the Muslim community.
When the sun is rising in the West, it is bad news for many, as it heralds the beginning of the Day of Judgment. But when The Sun (of Islam) Rises in the West, it heralds more light and warmth. This volume contains not only accounts by new Muslims, but also useful information and references. The first half of this book acquaints the new Muslim with others who are embarked on this demanding new life and with whom they can share their joy in Islam. The second half provides invaluable short expositions of the basics of Islam. There are 6,000,000 Muslims in the United States where Islam is filling the spiritual void with purpose, guidance, discipline, and support. This book is a welcome and inspiring educational experience to new Muslims and those who are contemplating this great way of life.
