Description
The book Islam – Its Beauty & Wisdom is a novel presentation of Islam, interweaving traditional Islamic material with well-documented contemporary research from the physical and behavioral sciences. This book provides an understanding of the wisdom of Islamic teachings from a religious-scientific perspective. This is a refreshingly different approach to a classic subject. It has meanings and relevance to both Muslim and non-Muslim readers.

Summary
The book Islam – Its Beauty & Wisdom explains the teachings of Islam in ĺight of modern scientific research from the perspective of a medical scientist. Hence, this book is a departure from the normal religious dry books.

Excerpt
This book first explains what the five pillars of Islam are in such a way any non-Muslim can understand and appreciate. It then heads in a direction I have never personally seen before in any religious manuscript. By this, I mean it provides us with effective scientific reasoning to explain health benefits associated with performing obligatory prayers (SALAH) and fasting (Saw’m). As someone similar to Dr. Mushtaq with an extensive background in the Life Sciences, I can certainly appreciate this approach. (Dr. Jeff Bernstein)
