Publisher's Summary

The easiest way to learn about Islam is through the traditions of Mohammed called the Hadith. 

The Koran repeatedly commands every Muslim to follow the perfect example of Mohammed’s life, his words and deeds, referred to as the Sunna. The Sunna includes the Hadith (Mohammed’s traditions) and the Sira (Mohammed’s biography). 

Since there is not enough information in the Koran for Muslims to practice Islam and understand the doctrine, the easiest way to learn about it is from Mohammed’s traditions. The Hadith gives us fascinating and detailed accounts of his life. We know what Mohammed looked like, his sense of humor, his superstitions, and how he ate. Details about his sex life, family life, and leadership are all recorded. 

These Hadith contain all the information that is needed to follow the example of Mohammed as a father, a political ruler, a warrior, and the perfect husband.  

The Hadith is a condensed version of the Islamic hadith collections, providing the listener with a taste of Islam. It is concise and authoritative. The reference system allows you to confirm and verify all information with the original source texts.

Terrible but informative

I should've known better when "Sunnah" as well as "Muhammad" were misspelled. but it does give me insight on how the world views Islam and it couldn't be further from the truth.

Detrimental to Islam

This author sets a negative tone and pulls only pieces of scripture that seemingly (out of context) supports his warped view of this religion. If I were someone who burned books, this one would be the first one in the fire.

Tough but true information

Dr. Warner provides some difficult education with this book which is a part of his larger series of learning to understand political Islam.

Some readers may find the very direct and unvarnished reveal of Islam to be unpalatable. Some may even confuse the direct citation of the most authoritative sources within Islam to be somehow offensive.

As I am very familiar with all of the source material, Dr. Warner has not participated in aggrandizement or hyperbole. His take on political Islam is both clear and direct.

This book does not address Muslims whatsoever. It is entirely silent on any merits or flaw of the Muslim population or Muslim individuals.

The book deals solely with the authoritative texts and with political Islam which is derived from those texts. The treatment as objective.

As a result, it will likely have a discomforting effect on a decent person who reads certain sections.

The life of Muhammad is not a G rated film or a golden book story. It is a very violent, sometimes sexual, and difficult story with very harsh and quite extreme lessons.

The education available in this book is both valuable and can even be difficult for people familiar with the text, as I was.

Terrible! Negative! Hater!

Extremely negative tone to the book. All views are one-sided and the tone of the entire book is focussed around the authors point of you. Non-scientific and very arbitrary. I buy an enormous number of books to get knowledge, this author takes the beauty of the Quaran and destimates it.

incomplete

giving my unbiased opinion cuz I'm not a Muslim or Christian this book is perfect for somebody who has never read the Quran because he doesn't give the complete text only give the one-sided view on what he sees he tells the truth but he doesn't tell the whole truth from this book so therefore I leave with one star because it's incomplete you should tell the entire truth when writing a book and give the entire text

Claims to be objective, but is not

Claims to be objective, but is surely very set on the way it attacks the analysis... I hoped I could have a refund...

Misinformed, politically charged islamophobe

Although knowledgable on the political history of aspects of of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh), empires that succeeded him and the present day politics of the Middle East, this attempt to discern what the traditions of Islam are is misinformed, politically charged and frankly, Islamophobic.

The tenets of the faith are not anything like he describes, and Muslims do not perceive their religion of opinions through the narrow political lens he attempts to argue. Muslims abide by different legal schools of jurisprudence through which they look at Hadiths, sayings, alongside reading their findings with Quran. Some are stricter in their interpretations than others. That alone explains why the other 1.8 billion of us aren’t out killing people every day. As the Holy Quran says: “Whoever wants, let him believe, and whoever wants, let him disbelieve (2:256)”

I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone wanting to educate themselves on Islam, middle eastern politics, the history of the Middle East, the prophet Muhammad or the opinions of Muslims. It’s a helpful listen in terms of the American relationship between itself and the Middle East, but even then, it isn’t as lucid as other historians are on the issues.

Lies & Deceit

Only time Bill is honest is when he describes himself as ‘kafir’. The book is lies and deceit. Bill is pretending to be scientific but every quotation is taken out of its true context twisted and lied about with added explicit fiction. This makes Bill not only a kafir but also a munafiq. He is even claiming that Islam is responsible for all African slavery!

There's a certain degree of overlap

There's a certain degree of overlap with the other books in the series, but in fact that is quite helpful as the repetition of the most key points helps to drive things home.

It might be useful to incorporate as a cheat sheet a pdf in the Audible library with the key texts and their references as it is hard to remember them all from an audio reading, and when engaging a Muslim about these points they may try to downplay them or even claim we made them up. So this would be a useful addition.

Short, concise, and very informative! Loved it.

Considering he said in the opening chapter of this book:
"This book gives a simple way to understand Islamic doctrine. the method used in this book to understand Islamic doctrine is: you study Islamic political doctrine, not religion of Muslims. The reading is strait forward and simple. Learning takes place in stages and repetition. This book is in perspective of the Non-Muslim, the religion is of my importance. This book contains objective knowledge and not opinions... This book is based on fact based reasoning"

Bill Warner did just this. It deconstructed the aspects of the Hadith in a very organised, understandable fashion!
