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.

Completely biased and prejudiced

The whole thing is set up to brainwash people into hatred towards Islam. Shame on this person.

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.
