  1. BEING MUSLIM (2006) by Haroon Siddiqui (signed edition)
    Since 9/11, the world has been confronted with the most volatile facets of Islam with little explanation of how or why these controversial elements developed. Written by one of North America's most honoured journalists, "Being Muslim" presents an up-front and clear explanation of this complex and emotion-laden subject.
    Although the varying branches of Islam are analyzed and their history outlined, the real focus of the book is on the present. In speaking about and crossing political, cultural, and religious divisions, the author offers a unique perspective based on life in Canada, a country in which diverse groups of people have found a way to live in peace. Aimed at young adults, the book offers invaluable insight to readers of all ages, cultures, and religious traditions.
  2. MUHAMMAD: A PROPHET FOR OUR TIME (2006) by Karen Armstrong
    The Man Who Inspired the World's Fastest-Growing Religion
    Muhammad presents a fascinating portrait of the founder of a religion that continues to change the course of world history. Muhammad's story is more relevant than ever because it offers crucial insight into the true origins of an increasingly radicalized Islam. Countering those who dismiss Islam as fanatical and violent, Armstrong offers a clear, accessible, and balanced portrait of the central figure of one of the world's great religions.
  3. CULTURAL SIDE OF ISLAM (2003) by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall
    This is a compilation of eight scholarly lectures delivered in Chennai (Madras) India in 1926 by Mohammad Marmaduke Pickthall, as part of the famous "Madras Lectures on Islam" series.
    Pickthall, better known for his translation of the Holy Qur’an in English, was born in a Christian family and later, after deep study, embraced Islam and spent a number of years in India in the service of the erstwhile Nizam of Hyderabad. In these lectures he gave a graphic picture of different aspects of Islamic culture and establishes its superiority over the Western Culture.
  4. UNDERSTANDING THE PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI CONFLICT: A PRIMER (2007) by Phyllis Bennis
    If you have ever wondered "Why is there so much violence in the Middle East?," "Who are the Palestinians anyway?," "What are the occupied territories?" or "What does Israel want?," then this is the book for you. With straightforward language, Phyllis Bennis, longtime analyst of the region, answers basic questions about Israel and Israelis, Palestine and Palestinians, the US and the Middle East, Zionism and anti-Semitism; about complex issues ranging from the Oslo peace process to the election of Hamas. Together her answers provide a comprehensive understanding of the long-standing Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
  5. THE ISLAMIC ART AND ARCHITECTURE (2001) by Sir Thomas Arnold
    This book published originally under the title The Legacy of Islam seeks to give an account of those elements in the culture of Europe which are derived from the Islamic World. The entire gamut of the components of Islamic Culture, which flourished under the protection and patronage of the Islamic Empire, during the medieval period, has been studied in detail.

BONUS (given with any book) MECCA AT THE CENTRE OF THE WORLD
This new map was designed especially for the Canadian Islamic Congress by University of Waterloo (Canada) professor, Dr. Len Guelke.
"A conventional map contains distortions because the world is round and a map is flat," explains Prof. Guelke. "Such maps can give a very inaccurate idea of the direction and distance to Mecca from other places in the world. On this new world map, the direction of Mecca and the shortest distance is easily measured as a straight line ... It is amazing that Mecca is approximately the centre of the land mass of the world."
