    This book is interesting to read as the author does a brilliant effort to establish a difference between Cultural Islam and Islamic Culture. He also goes through the reasons and history of how the muslims adopted religious practices of other religions and civilizations, which contradict the true teachings of Islam, but through the years were mixed and now a cultural muslim is unable to distinguish between the two.

    The enlightening section, for me, of the book is the last section where Dr. Philips presents the Islamic Culture by explaining the five pillars of Islam and six pillars of faith. Why I love this part of the book is beacause, he explains each pillar as it is and the presents how that pillar is looked from Cultural Islam’s or Cultural Muslims’ point of view. This cleared many of my misconceptions as well and I had a better understanding of what each pillar helps in building up one’s character and identity.
