- 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.
- 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.

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
- UNDERSTANDING THE PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI CONFLICT: A PRIMER (2007) by Phyllis Bennis

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.

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."
