I went to my class the other night. It is the first of a 3-part class. Sadly, I can't go to this week's class. I did not know Sunni's make up 75%-85% of Muslims. We got a good geography lesson of where Muslims live, and the beginnings of the history of the religion.

I was struck by the commonalities to Christianity. I will go more into that later, as I am work right now. Just wanted to let you folks know I liked the class.

The lecturer for this class was from the University of Chicago.

Indeed there are many similarities, but the trinity is a fundamental difference. I personally think we're much closer to Judaism, especially in that the monotheism of Islam and Judaism is beyond challenge.

Sikhs are also monotheistic, but that's neither here nor there.

Good to see you liked the class!

One of my favourite institutes on Islam in the US is the Zaytuna Institute, they used to have classes over the internet plus many good articles, audio, video etc. Check it out some time: http://www.zaytuna.org
