Der Islam für Kinder
und Erwachsene

An introduction to Islam for everyone.
The authors Lamya Kaddor und Rabeya Müller provide a youngful and unorthodox perspective on this global religion. They explain the fundamentals - from the Koran and the life of Mohammad to pilgrimage and Sharia - but also contraversial topics such as fundamentalism or the position of women. In doing so, they introduce non-Muslims with all the important facets of Islam, while at the same time giving young (and certainly older) Muslims a fresh look at their own religion.

Autors: Lamya Kaddor and Rabeya Müller

The book provides in depth knowledg and diverse points of view on controversial questions and contextualizes the Koran in its historic epoch, enabling the readers to debate and find their own point of view. My illustrations and storytelling involve profound research, bridging the knowledge gap between Muslim and non-Muslim readers. They shed light on impressive insights, navigating the narrow path between respect and wit. And they establish closeness by narrating relatable and warm everyday stories of Muslim life. Stories of people. Strangers, neighbors, colleagues, friends.
