"The readers of ONE know well many of the differences that exist within Christianity, with its various churches and communities, each with its own rites and customs. They should not be surprised to learn, if they do not know already, about the diversity that exists within the Islamic world: how the interpretation of the five pillars of Islam – the fundamental obligations incumbent on all Muslims – differs among Muslims."
In his article, "Islam's Many Faces," Michael L. Fitzgerald,
M.Afr., explores the various sects and traditions which fall under the broad banner of Islam.
This and more can be found in the September 2008 issue of ONE magazine.
