Audible Editor Reviews

The recent decade has seen the faith of Islam, with its criticisms and celebrations, pushed to the front of public discussion. The remarkable program, Live at the 92nd Street Y, has brought in two incredible minds to discuss some of the major issues that concern Islam and its place in contemporary society. Best-selling author Irshad Manji, along with politician and author Ayaan Hirsi Ali, conduct an engaging and thought-provoking discussion about what is needed to help Islam keep up with modern times.

Publisher's Summary

In this visit to New York's 92nd Street Y, Irshad Manji and Ayaan Hirsi Ali discuss the trouble with Islam.

Irshad Manji is the best-selling author of The Trouble with Islam Today: A Muslim's Call for Reform in Her Faith. Manji has been called by The New York Times "Osama bin Laden's worst nightmare". The winner of Oprah Winfrey's first annual 'Chutzpah Award', Manji is currently a visiting fellow at Yale University and is producing a feature film about what there is to love within Islam.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the author of The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam, advocates the need for democratic governments to commit to defending the human rights of women in the Islamic world. Ali is a Dutch feminist and politician. She is a prominent (and often controversial) author, film maker, and critic of Islam.

    "Hope for Islam"

    Very well informed. Both ladies start with similar backrounds take different paths and end up in similar positions. Pleasant and exciting speakers. Also humorous. Shows how politics and agendas have tainted a religion. HIGHLY RECCOMEND!

    "An enjoyable (if short) experience"

    Worth listening to if you're a fan of Irshad Manji (and I am) albeit short

    "Commendable Women!"

    If more Muslims and ex-Muslims communicated with these women's verve and urgency, it would be a better world. I particularly like the intimate confession of Ayaan Hirsi Ali's moral support of Irshad Manji as a Muslim, though she herself cannot place a faith in Islam.

    Although today's life is faster than ever imaginable in the golden age of books, one can still learn, if only they chose to listen...

    "Muslims taking responsibility for their own"

    This was a good lecture by two women who represent peaceful Islam. It's a good speech.

    "A Dialogue"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Everyone should be a part of this conversation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Irshad Manji and Ayaan Hirsi Ali at the 92nd Street Y on The Trouble with Islam?

    Learning that there is growing momentum for an Islamic reform, a modernisation, an incorporation of modern human rights and values, including woman's rights, into Islam. Small, but growing.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    There is no book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's not a book.


    Any additional comments?

    Shalom.

    "Two amazingly courageous women!!"

    Listen and be inspired.
    I haven't heard of Irshad Manji before and I'm glad to have not been introduced now.
    Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an inspiration and one of the people whose disent may bring about a reformation for Islam. I hope...
