"With Dialogue Comes Understanding"

There are many questions, fears, and misconceptions about Islam and Muslims.

"What Would a Muslim Say?" showcases everyday people asking real questions and getting real answers about Islamic principles and practices.

This book documents my experiences as a volunteer with WhyIslam.org. For the past 10 years, I have helped facilitate dialogue with many different people, answering questions about Islam and addressing misconceptions about my faith. While most of the conversations were simple question-answer sessions, many were deep and engaging dialogues. So I wrote this book to share those conversations with people who might otherwise not have the ability or opportunity to talk with a Muslim about Islam. My hope is that this book can be step towards better understanding and harmony.

What Others Say

"I think people afraid of Muslims because they didn’t know them; they not understand them; especially now when so many terrible labels put on them. To find out more about Muslim I attended course Islam 101 in Cambridge mosque. My teacher was Ahmed Rashed. We spend with him a lot of times to go through Quran. After I started understand Muslims much better. Now Ahmed wrote a book “What Would a Muslim Say: Conversations, Questions, and Answers About Islam”. I think books, conversations with populations that do not know Muslims are very important: it will open their eyes."

- Sergey Shyndriay, Former Islam 101 Student


"Basically a book in a question-and-answer format with the theme of "With dialogue comes understanding". The author, as a member of a website that strives to promote a better understanding of Islam, answers e-mails ranging from the mildly curious to the outright hostile with logical, precise prose and a bit of informality. There is no hint of a preaching tone. He provides a basic description of Islam and how it compares to Judaism and Christianity and gets into details regarding "true" Islam's view of the world and how it contrasts with the actions of several of its adherents today. I learned a lot from this book and look forward to any future editions where I hope the author delves into more of the history and culture of Islam. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand more of the fastest growing religion in the world."

- Steve Stuart, Advance-Copy Book Reviewer


"Reading "What Would a Muslim Say?" felt like taking a journey in the minds and hearts of people and what they feel and think about Islam and Muslims. The questions are honest and reflect the thirst that people have to understand and explore what Islam is about. Ahmed Rashed remained focused in his answers even when it got really tough or emotional. He kept the answers balanced as they were also honest and spoke to the level of the person asking the questions with no judgement and with extreme patience, representing what Islam stands for and what good Muslims are like. A great and diverse read that you would surely enjoy."

- Hoda Elsharkawi, Muslim Chaplain, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
