The Religion of Islam: A Comprehensive Discussion of the Sources, Principles, and Practices of Islam is Maulana Muhammad Ali's seminal work on the Islamic religion. It is one of the most extensive texts ever written on the subject and serves as a great introduction to the faith.

It is clear that Maulana Muhammad Ali is an extremely well read and researched Lahori scholar. Only the most authoritative of sources are referred to in this book: the Qur'an, the sunnah of Muhammad, and Itjihad. These sources are introduced early and form the backbone for the remainder of the text.

Following the introduction of sources, this book is divided into two major parts: the first dealing with the principles of Islam, and the second covering the laws and regulations of Islam. The first part is the theoretical, whereas the second part is the practical. Almost every topic pertaining to Islam is covered in some form in this nearly 800-page work.

Maulana Muhammad Ali writes in a definitive manner throughout. It is rare to find such an authoritative take on a topic as significant as Islam. The author's voice will surely be a welcome guide to newcomers to the religion, and can also serve as a valuable resource to lifelong followers. The Religion of Islam is recommended to all followers of Islam, as well as anybody with even a cursory interest in learning about one of the world's great religions.

Maulana Muhammad Ali's rise to Indian national scene began in the first decade of twentieth century with publication of his articles in the Times of India. His fame quickly towered high with the founding and publication of his English Weekly 'Comrade' on January 1, 1911.
