Common Ground is a work of non-fiction in the religious and socio-political discussion sub-genres and was penned by author Dr. Kamal W. Khan. The work is intended for mature reading audiences to consider, and addresses the pertinent issue of the Western view of the religion of Islam, because of the prominent and lasting image of the 9/11 attacks in the eyes of the American people. In this expansive and discursive work, Dr. Khan explains in great detail the truth of the Muslim faith in order to clarify issues and reduce Islamophobia, introducing readers to the everyday Muslim, as opposed to the extreme version which is projected by mainstream media.

Author Dr. Kamal W. Khan has crafted a deeply considered and well-written book with plenty of insight to offer its readers. The work is also solidly grounded with quotations and subject matter from contemporary media to explain its ethos and message, which is positive and educational. I personally learned a lot about the teachings of the Quran that I had not known before, and I found the list of prominent Muslim persons and their contributions to world culture, science, and industry to be especially eye-opening and inspiring. This feature also really lent itself well to the concept of a united world with common goals for the human race. Overall, I would recommend Common Ground to readers who are seeking to expand their horizons on what Islam really is and break down some of their pre-judgments and barriers in a more general sense.
