Episode Summary

EDIT
Inside Islam
AIRED:
It is the second largest of the world's great religions, and the fastest growing. Its name comes from the word for peace, yet to many Westerners it is synonymous with terror. "INside Islam" lifts the veil of mystery surrounding a misunderstood faith. Trace its roots back to the Hebrew Bible and discover how the Five Pillars, the religion's central tenets, helped spread Islam to the far corners of the world. Find out what the Qu'Ran says about war, violence and suicide, and how these words have been co-opted by extremists. And hear from experts like Khaled Abou el Fadl (Speaking in God's Name), who debate the challenges facing Islam today, including a crisis of authority and deep divisions among many sects. Illuminating, important and objective, "Inside Islam" exposes the heart of a faith mired in controversy.moreless
