Book Description

In the West, the suicide bomber has become a familiar image in newspapers and on television. In Palestine, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and elsewhere, the results of suicide bombing have been devastating. What drives young men and women to become suicide bombers? This is not a question that is often addressed. This remarkable book provides some of the answers, and explores how the suicide bomber relates to the concept of the martyr in fundamentalist Islam. Farhad Khosrokhavar contrasts it with the idea of the martyr in Christianity. Most importantly, he offers a clear insight into the different ways in which the concept is viewed within Islam, including divisions within Islamic fundamentalist groups, which change according to the political situation of the country in which they are based. Drawing on extensive interviews with jailed Islamist militants, Farhad Khosrokhavar examines differing attitudes towards the 'sacred death' in various Islamic countries, including Iran, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt. He also investigates transnational networks such as Al-Qaeda, offering portraits of various prisoners who belong to the group. Farhad Khosrokhavar distinguishes between two types of martyr: those from the developing world, who are excluded from what modernity has to offer; and the minority who live at the heart of the Western world -- a mainly middle-class diaspora from the Middle East and the Maghreb who are at ease with several cultural codes, but whose experience of the West is still marked by racism and discrimination. ...

Book Description

Indonesia, Southeast Asia -- the next front in the war on terrorism maybe the most difficult ... and explosive.

Long before September 11, 2001, terrorism's global elite was already zeroing in on Indonesia -- the world's most populous Islamic nation, and its largest archipelago, where dense jungles and intricate, unpatrolled coastlines conceal almost endless hiding places. Acclaimed journalist and filmmaker Tracy Dahlby takes us into this dangerous terrain, both before and after 9/11, interweaving the divergent perspectives of Koran-thumping preachers, hardened holy warriors, military commandos, and embattled Muslim moderates, in a first-rate reporting adventure that sheds new light on the epidemic chaos now threatening our international community.

By turns harrowing, thought-provoking, and humorous, Allah's Torch charts a fascinating course through a sprawling land unknown to most Americans where the home-bred Jemaah Islamiyah, Asia's answer to Al Qaeda, pursues its deadly ambition of pressing all of Southeast Asia under the yoke of a pure Islamic super-state.

With the trained observer's eye for detail and veteran newsman's sense of the story hiddenbehind the headlines, Dahlby gives readers a highly personal tour of the militant Jakarta slums, terrorist-traumatized Bali, and the Islamic heartland on the island of Java, where the outcome of a struggle now raging between moderate Muslims and their extremist brethren for the country's Islamic soul promises to have far-reaching effects on the lives of ordinary Americans. In so doing, Dahlby maps out the chilling realities of what radical Islam has planned for us as our worlds inevitably collide -- and offers some surprising conclusions about how America's leaders -- and its citizens -- can best defend our country against Asia's new Osama bin Ladens.

4-0 out of 5 stars A short book on dhikr
This is a nice little book that is supposedly for meditation. On each page, it has arabic calligraphy of a particular name of God, its transliteration, its translation, and a few short words on the effects of meditating (or remembering Allah through this name, called "dhikr") using this name.

It is based on the teachings of the Sufis. Although the importance of dhikr is universally acknowledged within Islam, this is the first time I have seen someone say that remembering God through these names will produce these particular results. For example: Al-Wali, one who remembers Allah through this is likely to become a Waliullah. It does not explain from where these beliefs are derived. A nice, short, interesting piece nontheless

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful aid to meditation--I'd give it 10 stars!!!
I am not a Muslim, but I love this book. Each page has one of the names of God, illlustrated in beautiful calligraphy, with a transliteration of the Arabic, and an English translation. For example, "Al-Hakim, The Wise, He who has wisdom in all orders and actions." Then it has a brief word of advice about praying this name and the beneficial results of that prayer. This is not a book to READ about Islam or about God, but a book to PRAY. I have bought several copies and given them as gifts to Muslim friends. It's a shame that it's out of print.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ninety-Nine Names of Allah
NINETY-NINE NAMES OF ALLAH is not a lengthy treatise or a historical account of Allah and Islam. In fact, if you are looking for a book that sets out the principles and philosophies behind the Islamic faith then this isn't your book. This book was written for the purpose of meditation, to assist in further contemplating the glory and ineffable splendor of Allah.

The title refers to the ninety-nine names of Allah found in the Koran. Allah is said to have 3000 names: 1,000 known strictly by angels, 1,000 known only by the prophets; the 300 of the Torah (Old Testament of the Bible); the 300 of the Psalms of David; the 300 of the New Testament; the 99 of the Koran; and, the 3000th name, the greatest name, said to have been hidden by Allah.

The book itself is short, totaling a little over one-hundred pages excluding the preface. Each page contains one of the 99 names with a very brief explanation of its meaning, instruction on how to invoke its power, and the effect of doing so. And, without oversimplifying it, that's it.

You can look at this book in two ways: the first, a cute little book that would be a welcomed, though probably brief, talking piece and addition to the coffee table; and, the second, a vehicle "to find the One who is named," in which case no one can ever speculate and tell you of its potential value and rewards.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Enlightening
    Anyone leaning towards attaining a peace of mind for a few minutes everyday. In wanting to know right from wrong written in a beautiful and poetic style; anyone enclosed in the domain of modern superficiality wanting to tear through the murky membrane into a world that ignores materialistic credentials, THAN (it took me a while to get there, I know) this is the book to have. It is a pretty compilation of readings from the Muslim Holy book: the Quran. Followed by a quote from the teachings and observations of theologians and sufi saints of the Middle Ages. A must have!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Bounty of Allah
    Dear fellow readers, whether you're Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist or anything else, I highly recommend that you read "The Bounty of Allah, Daily Reflections from the Quran and Islamic Tradition". This is a lovely little book, well worth the time it takes to read 'a lesson a day'. As I was, you too will me amazed at the beautiful and helpful verses and sayings contained in this little book. If this is Islam (and it obviously is...straight from the original sources!), I LOVE it! I think you'll like it too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Daily inspiration
    The "Bounty of Allah" by Aneela Arshed is very nicely compiled book. Ms. Arshed collects very inspirational verses from the Quran along with relevant sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) or other wise people. A great daily reference

    5-0 out of 5 stars The First of Its Kind
    This book, which offers 365 pages of daily readings, is the first such compilation of its kind in that it has drawn upon the Islamic texts as its source. Each page has two quotations, one from the Koran, and the second from the Hadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad) or a Sufi saint. Quotations from the Sufi saints reflect the spiritual impact of the preceding Koranic verse. This book is for all readers, Muslims and non-muslims. Its appeal lies in its relevance. The daily reflections are food for thought, inspirational, and with a calming effect touch your heart. The Quranic verses are the guiding light; and the corresponding Sufi sayings have been artfully selected, with a preponderence of quotations from Rumi. This collection is one of Rumi's finest, translated by the author herself. A must read! ... Read more

    Book Description

    Despite the explosion of works on African Americans and religious history, little is known about the Muslims who came to America as slaves. Most assume that what Muslim faith any Africans did bring with them was quickly absorbed into the new Christian milieu. But, surprisingly, as Sylviane A. Diouf shows in this new, meticulously researched volume, Islam flourished during slavery.

    This book presents a history of African Muslims following them from West Africa to the Americas. It details how, even while enslaved, many Muslims managed to follow most of the precepts of Islam. Literate in Arabic, urbane and well-traveled, they drew on their organization and the strength of their faith to maintain successful, cohesive communities and to play a major role in the most well-known slave uprisings.

    Servants of Allah is the first book to examine the role of Islam in the lives of both individual practitioners and in the American slave community as a whole, while also shedding light on the legacy of Islam in today's American and Caribbean cultures. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good book on the African Muslims in America
    The first review was just terrible and shows the bias and bigotted remarks about islam. The book is an excellent book that gives us a better picture of how Islam came to America from the African Muslims enslaved. I met the author at Cal Berkley when she did her presentation on this book. As for the comments about slavery in Islam. It is not the same thing as slavery done in America and in Europe. Titus Burckhartdt in his book Moorish Culture in Spain said "Slavery within Islamic culture is not be confused with Roman slavery or with the American variety of the nineteenth century; in Islam the slave was never a mere "thing." If his master treated him badly, he could appeal to a judge and procure his freedom. His dignity as a Muslim was inviolable. Originally, the status of slave was simply the outcome of having been taken a prisoner of war. A captive who could not buy his own freedom by means of ransom remained in the possession of the captor until he had earned his freedom by work or until he was granted liberty by his master." The first reviewer must also note that slavery in Quran is seen such a way. As for the Middle east countries he mentioned, countries dont represent Islam. Islam is judged by its sources not countries. Besides, Saudi Arabic is a monarchy, which isnt a form of Islamic governance. This book shows the truth about the African American connection to Islam. It did not start with the Nation of Islam or Malcolm X, it started way before that.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Islam in America 1501 - 1920
    Fascinating study of African slave trade focusing on the Moslem African slaves. Servants of Allah offers excellent survey of the African cultural and geopolitical situation prior to and during the years of the slave trade. It is through this foundation that we understand the various ethnic and religious roots of the African slaves.

    Wisely the book has not focused on the middle passages covered in many other works but instead focused on the lives of Moslem slaves, in particular, in US, Caribbean and Brazil. The tremendous research and analysis has produced a true groundbreaking work in beginning to understand this very sad chapter of history.

    I learnt a great deal from this book, I had no idea of the extent of suffering Moslems and other slaves endured, I didn't know about the use of Arabic in US & rest of Americas as a way for enslaved Africans to communicate and even to keep plantation books. I had no idea of the suppression of Islam practiced as early as 1501 and the brutality of the Spanish Inquisition in the new World all they way through early 20th century. I was amazed to learn how in US the clearly well educated enslaved blacks were denied their Africaness by their masters and relabeled Arabs or Moors and in doing so the White Masters could continue to make sense of the inferior status of the black Africans.

    At times Diouf may have been a touch too romantic about the behavior of Moslems and it times attributed culturally narrow definitions to Islamic traditions, this does not detract from the excellent contribution of this most enlightening work on a very rarely addressed subject.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hidden history of Muslims in America
    I LOVED this book. The author brings a refreshingly AfroCentric, cosmopolitan viewpoint to the subject of African-American history. Ms. Diouf is sympathetic to and understands Islam. She loves Africa. She loves the people of Africa. She knows and respects the descendants of African slaves in the Americas. I consider all of this a big plus when telling this history. She brings a fresh perspective to a subject of monumental significance to millions of people all over the globe, a chapter in history which has impacted so many, and which is so misunderstood.

    Ms. Diouf has composed a fascinating, attractive, well-researched and easy-to-read account of the African Muslims who were brought to the Americas as slaves. Since a large percentage of the population of West Africa has been Muslim for several hundred years, it isn't surprising in hindsight to realize that many slaves kidnapped in Africa and shipped to the Americas were Muslims who were often quite well-educated. A typical West African Muslim was literate and could read and write, and often more likely to do so than his purchaser. Many of these enslaved Muslims had travelled extensively, had memorized the Qur'an and the hadith, or were from noble families. Some were knowledgeable teachers or students when they were captured. The fact that a Muslim could read and write Arabic and not a European language helped to keep their literacy a secret. There are many other reasons for the modern world's ignorance of this significant history, and Ms. Diouf presents a vast array of causes, meticulously footnoted. Her sources are vast and while the facts have seemingly been available for some time, it took a person who was actually looking for evidence to see the connections and to place the facts in focus. When she speculates, the suggestions are very plausible, yet clearly labelled as such.

    It is a story that, quite frankly, should be obvious but isn't. This is a book that should dispel forever, and good riddance to it, the propagandistic image of the African "savage" and replaces it with the light of reality.

    The success of the slave economy in the Americas depended on exploiting the image of the black man and woman as savages. In order to subjugate an entire continent's peoples, a drastic lie was needed. That the Africans were all savages and subhumans was the big lie that advanced the avarice and money-hungry motives of both slavers and slave owners.

    Ms. Diouf doesn't ignore the participation of Africans, often Muslims, in the slave trade. The first chapter gives a close look at the complicated factors that led millions of Africans from diverse backgrounds to be exported from Africa against their will. Yet, she contrasts the somewhat more benign idea of slavery as it existed in Africa and in Islam with the complete cruelty and hopelessness of the version imported to the Caribbean and Brazil, Georgia and Trinidad.

    To claim that somehow the Europeans were just taking advantage of a traditional African system of slavery, and to pretend that the Muslims were somehow equal in their responsibility for its existence, is to ignore the facts, and to insult the slaves' legacy. Ms. Diouf explains those not-so-fine differences carefully and without prejudice, blaming the Muslims when necessary. Yes, Muslims did trade other Africans to the Europeans, but only because their own societies were under threat. The trade in slaves ruined everyone it touched, not only the Muslims.

    Ironically, the second monotheistic religion brought to the Americas was Islam, yet those who practiced Islam were never to be known as Muslims. Islam was a big threat for those who sought to enslave its adherents. It engendered rebelliousness, the product of which was unlikely to be completely subjugated. In Brazil, Muslims organized a revolt that completely shocked their unsuspecting owners. In Haiti, Muslims were largely behind that country's independence struggle. Nevertheless, when a Muslim's family was stripped from him or her and literacy was forbidden, the disappearance of overt Islam among slaves was the result, insuring the disappearance of what was considered a "dangerous" attribute in any slave, his or her being a Muslim.

    Irony abounds in the story, the most ironic being that the Muslim slaves were perhaps freer than their owners. How could that be possible? Ms. Diouf has an answer on the last page of the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Necessary Contribution in Today's Dialogue on Islam
    Having been a long time student of Islam, I must say that Diouf's book masterfully combines the research of several specific authors to give an excellent overview of Islam in the Americas during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. This book can also serve as a demystifying agent in today's dialogue of Islam. For those who see islam as a recent, foreign, imported phenomenon advocating terrorism. Diouf's book begins to expose the long history of Islam in and with the United States. People like the anonymous A Reader,below could really benefit from actually reading the book to understand Islam's relationship with slavery in general, slavery in the Americas, as well as human rights. By the way, an excellent follow up book to learn about a more modern study of African-American Sunni Muslims is Robert Dannin's BLACK PILGRIMAGE TO ISLAM. Both books are a must-buy for anyone interested in studying Black history, Islam, or are simply interested in a non-traditional view of American history.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Enlightening...
    This book gives an overview of how Africans brought to the Americas as slaves were able to retain their faith and Islamic traditions so far away from their homelands and under oppressive, restrictive conditions. I found this book enlightening in many ways, and if you love or have an interest in history, it is a very good addition to one's library. ... Read more

    Book Description

    An ingenious and indept study of the secrets of the QUR`AN that has never been discovered before, also examines the physical and scientific evidence which proves that Islam will conquer all other religions and American power will diminish.The rise of Islam is much debated.Because the sources that discribe its origins date from centuries later, it is especially difficult to account for the rapidity of Islamic conquest.However, during the 630s and 640s, the followers of prophet Muhammad advanced from Arabia, captured large areas of the Eastern Roman Empire, and destroyed the ancient empire of Persia.By 680 the Arabs had mastered naval skills, occupied Cyprus and Rhodes, and besieged Constantinople.Their impact in the east was soon to be repeated in the west, as they marched across North Africa, capturing Cartgage (698) and crossing over into Spain (711).At the turn of the 7th/8th century, thefore, Europe was faced by a completly novel invader from the south, while its internal conflicts were by no means resolved, The Visigothic Kindom collapsed without a sttuggle.Islam is now the fastest growing religion in the world, even in the United States of America (USA),and that is no coincidence,in fact it is the will of (ALLAH) GOD, that Islam will conquer all other religions, however much idolaters may be averse. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting reading
    I just finished this book, motivated to find out more about Islam in light of recent events. While I agree that the doctrines of Islam, as illustrated in this book, are good and noble ones, it seems that it is subject to the same affliction that plagues many other religions - the hipocrisy of man in its practical application. There is much suffering in the world that exists at the hand of man that is "justified" by religious principles and Islamic countries are not exempt from this fact.

    As for the irrefutable scientific evidence, statistical information can, and often is, manipulated to arrive a pre-determined conclusions. I'm not saying it is absolutely wrong but a definitive source of information it is not.

    By all means, read this book as a information source; a starting point for a more thorough examination, but it is not the end all, be all it purports to be.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AN EYE OPENER
    Nukes may be able to damage property & kill people, but it cannot eleminate or destroy a religion.
    After reading this book, you will be convince that Islam is the fasting growing religion in the world, (including USA).
    Also, this book explains and prove step by step (using the science of mathematic) how the might and power of America will slip away, and it`s days as a super power will one day be history. I will not try to convince anyone, you owe it to your self to read this book, and to know the truth.
    My opinion- this book is an eye opener.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A decent book with an indecent title!
    Even though the book is a wealth of knowledge, specially for non-muslims, it would've been better without this misleading title. If you think this book's gonna talk about terrorism or 9/11 or stuff, you're wrong and cant be blamed for that. The book is extremely informative but i deducted 1 star for that catchy stupid title (not that its a lie though) and 1 star for not providing me any info i didn't know.
    There're are four chapters in this 125 paged book. The first three chapters are pretty much intro to Islam/Quran/Mohammed (pbuh) with a deeper look as you read briefly about Islam's beliefs, history, culture, philosophy, society, scholars and sects etc. Non muslims would like this info if they seek Islam's knowldege but as i'm a muslim, i skipped them as we study these topics since our childhood. Chapter 4, the only one having something to do with the title of the book, starts on page 103(outa 125 pages) and is amazingly interested to both Muslims and Non muslims. You first learn about this intricate mathematical code in Quran from God that keeps it from corruption from man. After assuming you're satisfied that Quran's word of God (you will, once you see this code open mindedly) it goes to tell that whole the content of Quran is word of God and hence true. Then in the last four pages of the book, authors quote verses from Quran about downfall of nations etc. Well, once you believe Quran is word of God, downfall of nations wont be the first thing you'll wanna know.
    The bottom line is Non muslims should buy this book and disregard the title while Muslims should rather buy Ahmed Deedat's 'Quran: The ultimate Miracle' which only explains this code. About 9/11 i'd recommend David Icke's "Alice in the wonderland and the WTC disaster" and you wont ask of any other book on the topic. After getting done with this book on the first day, all i can do is tape up the last half of the title of the book (And American...) and forward to friends.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Intelligence
    This is a very thought-provoking book for any follower of ISLAM to read and also, the title is very straight foward of the book`s contents.

    The answer to the three questions raised by the title of the book are 1) Islam is the only true religion, therefore Islam will conquer all other religions 2) American power will diminish since all civilizations rise and fall (Rome, Greece, Persia, etc) 3) Allah's predictions will soon come to pass since we live in the "Last Days".

    There are in the book interesting sections on Islamic religious and philosophical schools through the centuries, and the various sects of Islam; also a short section on Muhammad (not a man to cross!).

    However, if you are looking to buy this book based on the title, forget it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The gold standard for muslim conduct
    In the end, revelation is judged not by appointed deities but by the bitter acceptance of mass effect. This book challenged the notion of claimed divinity with no visible fruit as vain repetition of ancient doctrine. It is indeed funny how those who disagree with Messenger Muhammad's little booklet attack not the fruit of his revelation, but the way and environment in which it was delivered. "There is much I could tell you, but, you cannot bear it now, but..." The preceeding quote is scripture, those with superiour 'intellect' could attack it's essence or origin, but oh, the many souls it saved, and-with but a solemn, sincere promise: better times ahead, for those who believe. Now, the root of this book deals with revelation. Do I believe it? It does not matter. Has it changed lives? ...Yes. Do I dispise this affect on human life? No. In this book Messenger Muhammad demands that his followers carry no weapon, not even a pen knife. Good teaching for today's climate, no doubt. He says be clean inward and out. Given, the Messenger's teaching was specifically targeted to African-Americans, given the cuurent state of affairs between Whites and Blacks in America and the World, what better foundation for us to stand on than these basic teachings? You say, "He called White people devils!" I say White people are in the best position to defend this statement, seeing that they have built much, and possess much in material and political power, it is not hateful to let them defend themselves as we have worked to show our worth in spite of hurtful speech. In the end, the bitter pill for both (Black and White) to swallow is not who hurled the most spiteful names, but who took up the banner of sober, responsible behaiviour and worked to make this nation a better place for our children.

    1-0 out of 5 stars dishonorable elijah muhammed: not a muslim
    this is just a warning to those who might be led astray. elijah muhammed is in no way a muslim and has no connection whatsoever, barring terminology, to islam. in fact, according to the Qur'an and true muslims, (ie. the people who have professed islam for 1400 years, as opposed to elijah muhammed who boldly stole the name for his own purposes less than 100 years ago) by claiming that wd fard, a raincoat salesman from detroit in the early twentieth century was Allah, the creator and ruler of all that exists, seen and unseen, elijah muhhamed (and fard) committed the only sin not forgivable by the All-Merciful: setting up others beside Him, or as equal to Him. an interesting side note is that wd fard was not even original enough to create the forgery himself but stole even the idea of subverting the terms of islam from the noble drew ali.
    secondly, elijah muhhamed preached seperatism and was a racist. whatever the reason or value of his opinions and ideas, these are not the same or even similar to those of islam, which teaches unity and racial equality. true islam has nothing to do with race, as the qu'ran and hadith say nothing even remotely similar to what elijah muhammed claims.
    one must wonder why elijah muhammed was so determined to steal from and malign islam? it is competely absurd, as well as sinful to claim Allah was a raincoat salesman in Detroit and just ignorant to say elijah muhhamed "makes quick work of the eastern muslims". it is disrespectful and dishonorable for elijah muhammed to call himself a muslim when his beliefs are completely contradictory to those of islam, as malcolm x discovered. it would seem that elijah muhhamed harbored a great hatred for islam/muslims and thus attempted to subvert the true teachings. i would have given this book zero stars were i able, except perhaps as a curiousity of american and african-american history.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Short And Sweet But To The Point And Full Of Truth
    The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in this short speech explains who he is, his mission and his responsibilities. He makes quick work of the Eastern Muslims who want to cast doubt as to his Messengership. He shows the Eastern Muslims to be complete hypocrites in condemning him but yet seeking friendships in America with the very infidels that their Holy Qu'ran condemns while failing to do Islamic missionary work amongst the people in America who need it the most. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad then explains what his divine role is and to whom he was sent. This book provides a very good and quick overview of the Islamic missionary work conducted by the Elijah Muhammad. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype
    This beautiful coffee--table book of black and white photos is not well-represented by the excerpts available. Yes, the section on Iran has many pictures of frothing-at-the-mouth mobs surging through the streets, brandishing fists and assault rifles. No, the rest of the book is nothing like that. There are some ghastly pictures of war dead in the section on Kuwait, and the inevitable images of uzi-toting worshippers at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, but nothing else like the featured parts. The book is much more sensitive and insightful than that.

    Iran-born Magnum photographer Abbas traveled through the Islamic world, searching for manifestations of militant Islam. (It's too bad he didn't collaborate with V. S. Naipaul in his research on the very similar subject of Islam in non--Arabic countries.) What he came up with were images that show the unifying (or uniformity-imposing, if you prefer) power of Islam. Everywhere he goes, he finds the same images: Schoolchildren bobbing and chanting over their Korans, tumbledown cemeteries where the dead are honored on Fridays, funerals, women and girls in hijab going about their daily business, men lolling on carpets in mosques reading the Koran, people stopping in their tracks to perform their prayers, and etc.

    There are also many delightful surprises: Schoolgirls in hijab cloaks playing basketball, ballerinas in a muslim former Soviet republic, a long--haired dervish in full flight with drum and tambourine leggings, a emotional Kuwaiti woman talking with an almost as emotional female American soldier after the liberation of Kuwait City, a bearded elder walking past a clutch of Pakistani teens in Britain who radiate "Cool Britannia".

    Some of the surprises are not delightful. We see a Christian in Sudan being tried and then flogged in a shariah court for drinking alcohol. A sheep in an English barbershop, cows in Indonesia, and camels in the pilgrimage places in Saudi Arabia are all sacrificed in performance of Islamic rites. Shiite Muslims lashing and lacerating themselves in one of their ceremonies.

    But throughout there are many images of pure photographic beauty. Baobab trees are shown in spiky, inky silhouette above a cemetery. Rows of white--cloaked women at prayer in Jakarta stretch beyond the border of the photo. Young Senegalese men pose in front of a tangle of limbs and vines after an initiation ceremony. Really gorgeous stuff, quite beyond the power of this amateur.

    The unobtrusive text tells of Abbas' travels among these peoples. He strikes out in the U. S. with the Nation of Islam, who quickly clam up and deny him access. He gets along fine with the Indonesian Muslims, and even has to coax statements of discontent out of them. (This visit was before the eruption of religious rioting in that country). His lack of religion causes him to frequently despair of understanding his subjects--a lack of confidence thankfully not shared by his camera.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Allah O Akbar: A Journey Through Militant Islam
    The Iranian-born photographer Abbas, a staff photographer for Magnum Photos in Paris, travelled in twenty-nine Muslim countries from West Africa to China in an effort to try the pulse and flavor of fundamentalist Islam. Abbas, who makes no bones about the fact that his religion is artistic creativity, finds the whole phenomenon slightly repulsive even as it fascinates him.

    The hundreds of black-and-white pictures in "Allah O Akbar" will likewise repulse and fascinate the reader, as will Abbas's fast-moving, intelligent text telling of his experiences as a photographer. Violence and death features prominently in these pictures, from the Qur'anic teacher in the Sudan bearing a whip to a profusion of slaughtered animal parts to the appalling parade of young Iranian men triumphantly carrying the corpse of a prostitute they had burnt to death. Many fascinating pictures concern women: one very modestly covered Algerian art student diligently paints a naked male statue while an Egyptian zoology student covered from head to toe (including black gloves) looks from under her cowl into a microscope. An Afghan bride participates in a marriage ceremony at which the groom is represented only by his picture (he's off in Germany); a belly dancer performs in a social club at a Renault company social club in France; and two women sit together on a Moroccan beach, one veiled and the other in a tanktop swimming suit.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Reinforcing negative stereotypes.
    The apparent contempt that the author has for his subject, Islam and the Muslim world, makes this an unfortunately one-dimensional book, lacking in both insight and sensitivity. Through his highly subjective choice of photographic material the author has succeeded in heightening every prejudice, reinforcing every misconception, and exacerbating the deepening divide between the Islamic and Western worlds. The subject of Abbas' interviews implies that Muslims the world over are as ignorant as they are belligerent. He certainly confirms his reputation as "one of the few photographers who can raise photojournalism to an art form" but the only cost of sensationalism is honesty. A small price to pay for the artist who would rather 'inspire' than depict the truth in all its banality. He states that "poverty is not natural" and maintains that "young people find refuge in the Koran and in Islamist institutions when racism and chronic unemployment become unbearable." The shallow implication of this statement being that those who can attain relative gains (i.e. people with jobs) will not need the emotional and spiritual crutch provided by religion. But does spiritual hunger always arise from material limitation and need? Caricatures will suffice for the childish mind. Black and white photography dramatises contrast. It is my hope, however, that there will be readers who realise that not everything is black and white.

    Book Description

    Islam has been called "a peaceful religion." But many radical Muslim fundamentalists are willing to use violent means to assert their ideology.

    This book puts forth the case that this ideology is not new but is at the core of Islam and examines the doctrinal and ideological roots of Islamic fundamentalism. As we understand the premise upon which Islamic fundamentalism is built, we are compelled to pursue the millions of Muslims who have "zeal without knowledge" with the life-changing truth of the gospel.

    In our Western culture where religion is irrelevant and God is ignored, we can scarcely understand the zeal for Allah that Muslim Fundamentalists demonstrate. But it is "zeal without knowledge."

    David Zeidan desires to awaken in us a concern for the millions of Muslims who have a zeal for God "without knowledge," and to inspire us to pursue them all the more with truth of Christ’s love, compassion and the message of the gospel. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Catchy title incoherent content
    I picked up this book as title looked very interesting. I read a good part of the book in travel. The book does a fairly in-depth objective analysis of a few specific case studies (eg Rushdie affair in UK, Hijab issue in France and Nation of Islam/Louis Frakhan coverage). However, these are but random samplings of events which got a lot of media coverage but do a poor job of reflecting the overall Muslim presence in the West. Not an easy read and not as objective as I hoped.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ignore the title, go by the subtitle
    I would really like to know why the author chose 'Allah in the West' as the title(perhaps for sales). His book has nothing to say about the concept of Allah at all. The subtitle is accurate, it should have been the title. Its tone is that of a university study. Provides a lot of history about Muslim organizations in Britain and France.Totally ignores Muslims in general in the US but focuses on the Black Muslim movement instead. To me the Black Muslim movement in the US is a very different type of organization so putting it in the same book as studies of the Muslim organizations in Britain and France does not strike the right chord. ...

    When I ordered this book I didnt know what I could actually expect,but after reading I realised that it was written by one of the contemporary erudite scholar who has credentials in both exoteric and esoteric tenets of Islam.The book is well written about the state of prophet after death and also articles on the Holy prophet's ascension and vision of the Almighty,most of the proofs are well substantiated and footnotes are useful in clarifying the validity of prophetic narrations as the views of past scholars,arguements etc have been neatly laid up where ever possible. ...
