  • "What I did not know about Islam"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I took up this book after listening to Zealot by the same author. That was quite a book and very enlightening.

    This book on Islam is also enlightening. I was prepared to be disappointed either because the author would be somehow Blind or that the book would otherwise be second-rate.

    However, clearly Mohammad was a decent person, and clearly Islam is a legitimate faith and not some mishmash dreamed up more than a thousand years ago.

    When Mohammad was alive, he got along just fine with the Jewish folk!

    What happened to Islam was the problem of succession to Mohammad. Complexities due to special interests of the original business and government leaders of Mecca and a variety of other groups disputing control affect Islam to this day.

    There is a lot of detailed understanding in this book that explains modern Islam such that it can be understood justly. There is an explanation of the Taliban and Al Quaida as a reaction more to Saudi Arabia (and the extraordinary hypocrisy of its leaders' materialism and its extremely strict Puritanical Wahhabi sect of Islam) than to the United States!

    Mentioned in passing is that the American Center for Disease Control and the American Type Culture Control (.org on the web) provided the chemical and biological materials used by Saddam Hussein for use on the Iranians to such horrific effect some years ago.

    The author Reza Aslan is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

    The narrator was most excellent.

    Though it is the fastest growing religion in the world, Islam remains shrouded by ignorance and fear. What is the essence of this ancient faith? Is it a religion of peace or war? How does Allah differ from the God of Jews and Christians? Can an Islamic state be founded on democratic values such as pluralism and human rights? A writer and scholar of comparative religions, Reza Aslan has earned international acclaim for the passion and clarity he has brought to these questions.

Jacobus's greatest hits:
  • Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources

    "One of the standard Western works om Muhammad"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    If you want to get to know Muhammad through Muslim eyes, while not being able to read Arabic, this book is just the book. While it incorporates legends and possibly some myths about the prophet of Islam, it does give the reader/ listener an excellent overview of the man Muhammad.

    The fact that it is abridged gives some force to the story and helps the listener to understand Muhammad's life as a whole. I've read the book in the past and find that the portrait is much better sketched, with some of the details left out.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in Islam and especially its prophet Muhammad. Martin Lings did a great job of helping readers to understand this complex person.

  • The Modern Scholar: Judaism, Christinanity and Islam

    "Excellent overview of the 3 monotheistic religions"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Prof. F.E. Peters has studied the three monotheistic or Abrahamic religions for most of his life. He is not only a well accomplished scholar, but also an excellent teacher.

    In The Modern Scholar: Judaism, Christianity and Islam, he gives an overview of the three religions from how believers of these religions would approach these faiths. In the first few lectures he gives an overview of each religion and later on he identifies certain institutions and practises that when compares functions very much the same. He tries to present this information in as unbiased manner as possible, in which he greatly succeeds.

    I enjoyed the lectures and I thought that the PDF-booklet that accompanied the lectures were excellent. While I felt at times that Prof. Peters should have spend a little bit more time on the one or other issue, I realise that the few instances were a matter of personal taste.

    I highly recommend these lectures. It helps you to gain an insightful perspective on the three religions which one is only able to attain when you compare them with each other. Obviously your own perspective on each of these religions might inform your experience of Prof. Peters' approach i.e. if you believe Islam are from Satan, you might feel that he is too apologetic towards it. Yet, from a sound scholarly approach, Prof. Peters created a set of lectures that is unbiased, well-researched and might stimulate more open dialogue between the three faiths.

  • The Truth About Muhammad: Founder of the World's Most Intolerant Religion

    "Boring propaganda"

    Overall

    It often happens that you stumble upon a book that could've stayed on the shelve. If you're not American and have an academic knowledge of the Muhammad, this book might be too much to stomach. If you are American and like politics this book is for you. Still I found it very biased. I caught my mind frequently opting out when trying to listen to this audio book.

    This book has made so much that has mystified me about the middle east, Muslim behavior, and Arabic culture so much clearer. It really helps understand events in the middle east and worry about whether solutions can be arrived at. Living in Kuwait, this has opened my eyes to things I didn't understand in my everyday dealings and observations of the Kuwaitis and other middle easterners. This book is spot-on!

    Jeg er vokset op i islams hus og har mange gode minder med derfra. Huset har været med til at forme mig til den, jeg er i dag, og jeg er tæt knyttet til min familie og venner af huset, til rummene og de gamle møbler. På den anden side af gaden ligger der et andet hus: kristendommens. Jeg har kigget ind ad vinduerne, jeg har været inde i det. Der er tørt og varmt, og nogle sørger for at vaske gulvet, når det trænger. I islams hus er der til gengæld hul i taget, ruderne er knust, og væggene mangler puds.

    Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

    Timothy Pauls says: "An excellent reason for the author to narrate"

    Exploring the beliefs, history and politics of the ordinary people of Muslim countries, Grieve cuts through the complexities as he examines all aspects of Islam. He also addresses the big issues: Can Islam support true democracy? Is true democracy what the West really wants for Muslim countries or are we merely seeking a cover of legitimacy for a policy of 'might is right'? Paul Grieve is an unbeliever - he is not a born-again Muslim, a proselytizer or a frustrated desert romantic. His aim is to inform.
