All of the heavenly books explain the orders and prohibitions of Allah and the duties and responsibilities of man. Allah appointed prophets and sent books to guide men and to warn them. Throughout the history, the wise action of Allah was like that.
Hussein offered a list of five books for people interested in learning more about Islam.
- Listen:What's it like to be Muslim in America?
1) 'The Story of the Qur'an: Its History and Place in Muslim Life' by Ingrid Mattson
Ingrid Mattson is an Islamic scholar and former professor of Islamic Studies at the Hartford Seminary in Connecticut.
She is now a senior fellow of the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought in Amman, Jordan. Her text provides an introduction the Quran, its themes and its central role in Muslim society.
2) 'Islam: A Short History' by Karen Armstrong
From the publisher:
'No religion in the modern world is as feared and misunderstood as Islam. It haunts the popular imagination as an extreme faith that promotes terrorism, authoritarian government, female oppression, and civil war.
In a vital revision of this narrow view of Islam and a distillation of years of thinking and writing about the subject, Karen Armstrong's short history demonstrates that the world's fastest-growing faith is a much more complex phenomenon than its modern fundamentalist strain might suggest.'
3) 'What Everyone Needs to Know About Islam' by John L. Esposito
Esposito provides clear answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the origins and traditions of Islam.
4) 'In the Footsteps of the Prophet: Lessons from the Life of Muhammad' by Tariq Ramadan
Tariq Ramadan's biography of the Prophet Muhammed is intended for both Muslims and non-Muslims. It offers a new understanding of one the most influential figures in history.
5) 'Islam in America' by Jonathan Curiel
From the publisher:
'In 'Islam in America,' Jonathan Curiel traces the history of America's Muslims.
Drawing on interviews in communities from industrial Michigan to rural California, Curiel portrays the diversity of practices, cultures and observances that make up Muslim America.'

first1-20, 21-40, 41-60, 61-80 .. 121-130nextlast I do not recommend the book by Stephen Schwartz who is a crypto-Muslim convert and tricks you into accepting one form of Islam for another in his crypto-propaganda book (he praises Mullah ruled Iran for example).
Feel free to add your recommendations.
What Went Wrong: Western Impact and Middle Eastern Response by Bernard Lewis
I would add The Arab Mind, by Raphael Patai. I have the original 1973 edition, but there is a 2002 revised edition on Amazon.

I haven't read it myself but Paul Greenberg (The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) speaks very highly of it so I'll take recommend it on faith.Quote:
Two of the books on the table are by Bernard Lewis, the best guide available to Arabdom. Especially for Arabs. They read him for the same reason Americans read de Tocqueville. To see ourselves as others see us.
I have only one chapter to go in Professor Lewis’ The Crisis of Islam, and will hate to finish it. It will mean leaving his company. To read Bernard Lewis is like eating baklava: rich, delicious, leaving one not sated but wanting to taste just another morsel. To mention a few of his offhand observations:
Books Review All Islamic Content In One Places
• 'In current American usage, the phrase ‘that’s history’ is commonly used to dismiss something as unimportant, of no relevance to current concerns, and despite an immense investment in the teaching and writing of history, the general level of historical knowledge in American society is abysmally low. The Muslim peoples, like everyone else in the world, are shaped by their history, but unlike some others, they are keenly aware of it. '
• 'In the Western world, the basic unit of human organization is the nation, in American but not European usage virtually synonymous with country. This is then subdivided in various ways, one of which is religion. The Muslims, however, tend to see not a nation subdivided into religious groups but a religion subdivided into nations. ’ ’
• In the Arab world, Professor Lewis notes, 'References to early, even to ancient history are commonplace in public discourse. In the 1980s, during the Iran-Iraq war, for instance, both sides waged massive propaganda campaigns that frequently evoked events and personalities dating back as far as the seventh century… . It is hard to imagine purveyors of mass propaganda in the West making their points by allusions dating from the same period, to the Anglo-Saxon heptarchy in England or the Carolingian monarchs in France.'
I’m also re-reading Professor Lewis’ What Went Wrong — a history of the Arab world that’s more relevant than ever. He’s the kind of historian/author/teacher/gentleman whom you want to re-visit.
(Paul Greenberg in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, August 17, 2003)
I agree with your comments about Schwartz. Spencer's book is excellent. From the standpoint of Muslims who converted to evangelistic Christians, there's 'Unveiling Islam' by Ergun and Emir Caner.
For anyone who's read Schwartz's book, I'd recommend Michael Ledeen's 'The War Against the Terror Masters' for the real scoop on Iran and the very real anti-US cooperation between Sunnis (Iraq, Saudi Arabia, etc.) and Shiites (Iran) that the State Department and Schwartz insist doesn't exist.
There was another book called 'Dhimmitude' by a female author that was reviewed on FR favorably. Forget the author.
And I recommend :
as the best place on the internet for skeptical information about Islam and Muhammed, etc. Somewhere in that site is a biography of Muhammed written by an English historian of 100 years ago, Muir. Real good, and follows Hadith (this is important because it is what the Islamicist believe Muhammed was):
some great blod-curdling scenes in that book!
It also should be noted that Karen Armstrong is an apologist for Islam with anti-Wetern biases. Her 'popular' books are wrong and bad.
I have not read this book but have heard good things about it.
The Closed Circle by David Pryce-Jones - excellent read from the early 1990’s about the nature of the Arab mind and how western principles of culture, freedom and the individual are completely incompatible with the Arabs and Islam.
The Haj – fiction written by Leon Uris about the forming of Israel and the pathetic nature of the Arabs. Slanted by an easy read and informative.
Great list, thanks.
Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment [was] as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
Rev 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
Rev 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts [were] like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads [were] as it were crowns like gold, and their faces [were] as the faces of men.
Rev 9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [the teeth] of lions.
I love Oriana!
