100 Questions About Islam

British Council USA Created by British Council USA Plus

Current debates about integration, religious freedom and cultural diversity highlight growing levels of tensions between Muslim and non-Muslim communities in the US and Europe—most of which are founded on a lack of information.

For that reason, we have set out to provide a range of answers to questions at the heart of relations between Muslims and non-Muslims today. For example, what is Sharia law? What is the role of religion in the public space? And how have the Arab Spring revolutions begun to change that? What values do Muslim and non-Muslims share? Are we really so different, after all?
