The blessed days, nights, and months are each a distinctive sign of islam. They are celebrated by Muslims all around the world in due respect to their unique worth and sanctity that make them distinct from the rest of the year. Muslims commemorate Prophet Noah and his tireless messengership every year by cooking Ashura pudding and sharing it with their neighbors; they remember the great model of Abraham as the firend of God who displayed the greates example of submission to the Divine Will. Providing essential information about various components of Islamic tradition as the unviersal heritage of human history, we hope this book will serve to the better understanding and mutual respect between members of different faiths.
