Product Description

About the Author

The author was born in Iraq. His mother tongue is Arabic.Using only his resources and time, 23 years, he studied the Quran, Hadiths, New Testament, Hebrew Bible, Zoroasterian & Pagan religions in depth. Because of his Arabic background, his interest in the foundations and sources of the Quran was triggered by the enormous number of verses of the Quran that were so similar to those in Christian & Jewish traditions.His research came to extremely controversial and unusual conclusions that he was driven to share with others especially when his original manuscript was refused publication for fear of retribution.Every statement and conclusion in this book are entirely his.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into the real Islam 13 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This Kindle book reads slightly oddly because it is based on the multiple You Tube videos that were subsequently taken down. At what point does "insulting" a religion trump free speech?
The arguments and revelations, though obviously very empassioned, are very revealing and insightful, and there must be a lot going on beneath the surface in the normal dealings between gentile and Muslim.
Islam is undeniably a supremacist and bigoted religion, with both the word of Mohammed and the Koran (much the same thing)calling for one faith under Allah - others have the choice of subjugation or death.
As the West progresively retreats on matters such as the Burka, Halal meat for all, allowing modified Sharia law in some areas etc while no-one bothers to learn what Mohammed really said or what is really in the Koran, then we will have only ourselves to blame for the steady advance of a culture that undermines most of our own values.

5.0 out of 5 stars Islam revealed 17 Jun 2009
This book will undoubtedly upset many who have been led to believe that Islam is a benign faith,that speaks only of peace.Nothing could be further from the truth.Islamic "peace" bears no resemblance to the sort of peace which we all understand and wish to live in. Fortunately we have people in this world who have the ability,presence of mind and not least courage, to question and uncover falsehoods,presented as truth.This is one such book. I would highly recommend reading this book,if not for your own enlightenment, for the benefit of the whole of humanity;for this faith's intentions are for world domination under Muslim rule,with 7th century Arabian rules "devinely" mandated to follow,named Sharia Law.(the pathway to Allah)
This book will answer any, and all questions you may have about this belief system.A most informative and important book,one which we all must be grateful for.

i would have found this a truly eye-opening read...had i not previously seen the 200+ clips on youtube each equivalent to a chapter in this book! where do i begin with the fascinating facts!
jihad developed out of the desert raiding culture, and was incorporated into islam [with its sexual reward in the afterlife] as an awesome device for expanding the faith territorially. allah was one of the stone idols of the ka'ba which mohammad islamised and turned into his god.
abrogation means that god is indecisive and changes his mind constantly. the "night journey" was spurious and the al aqsa mosque was build to retrospectively validate the story. explained is the origin of muslims antipathy towards jews. multiple versions of the quran. taqiya and subterfuge. jizya tax and subjugation of non-muslims.
interesting to learn about too are the "ridda wars" which were fought to re-submit to islam all those who, upon mohammeds death had a change of heart and abandoned islam.
one can be in no doubt, after reading this book, where all those who do violence in the name of islam get their motivation from.
it becomes apparent that the good deeds done by muslims in their interactions with non-muslims are all done in spite of the hateful & intolerant exhortations of the koran, not because of it.
if you read wafa sultans: a god who hates, and nonie darwish's: cruel and usual punishment, you will get a complete understanding of the psychological roots of islamic supremacism, and the negative consequences that flow from this, both for non-muslims, and for muslims themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars reveilling 11 Jun 2011
Very enlightning book, format is a bit difficult to get a complete crasp of. as you read through the material it does explain previous statments. Knowing Arabic would help,but does not hinder in dicovering the truth of the foundations and present mind sets of Muhammadian Islam.

By jks
Format:Kindle Edition
This book makes some interesting points, some of which I had never really thought about before, even as a (non-Muslim) person with a decent knowledge and understanding of Islam, as well as a basic grasp of Arabic.

One particularly interesting point is that of the apparent confusion between Miriam of the Torah (sister of Moses/Musa and Aaron/Haroon), and Mary Mother of Jesus (Maryam umm Isa) of the New Testament and the Qur'an.

Also interesting are al-Rassooli's observations regarding the apparent complete lack of 'Biblical' names amongst the companions of Muhammad, names such as Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses), Da'ud (David), and so on, despite the assertations of both the Qur'an and Ahadith that these well-known biblical figures were the forefathers of the Arabs.

So, some stimulating eye-openers can be found in this book.

However, it is severely let down by a few problems:

1) The typesetting/formatting/grammar is very poor. I understand that this book appears to be based on a series of videos (?), but this format is conveyed very poorly throughout the text of this book (and there's never any excuse for poor spelling and grammar).

2) A lot of the assertations put forth by al-Rassooli are 'backed up' by the Old and New Testaments, as 'proof' that large portions of the Qur'an are somehow 'wrong' - this tactic of using Biblical works as 'evidence' in part relies on the assumption that the Bible IS 'correct'. This notion is hard to swallow for curious agnostics/atheists, and also doesn't solve the question of...what if the Bible WAS 'wrong', and the Qur'an DID 'correct' the Bible, as Islamic tradition asserts? More REAL history and less reliance upon Scripture as a quasi-academic source would have been appreciated.
