Product Description

Product Description

Is Islam a religion of peace? Well it depends on who you ask. The ultimate question is, "who officially speaks for Islam?" This journal examines the Islamic doctrine of "lesser jihad" which is an obligation for every Muslim to obey, as well as Islam's doctrine and practices towards women. Islam is based on the alleged revelation from god - Allah in the Quran and the practices (Sunnah) of their prophet Muhammad. One article examines the history of how the Muslim community and domination spread, mostly through Jihadic force, during Muhammad's reign as well as his successors. Another article reveals how the initially peaceful and favorable verses dealing with Christians and Jews in the Quran were later abrogated or annulled by "verses of the sword." Another charge of Islamic violence is manifested in its treatment of women. Although the mistreatment and inequality ranges in degree among different Muslim communities, an article notes the abuse has a Quramic and historical basis, as well as many examples under fundamentalist Islamic Sharia law. Another article responds to the Muslim's attempts to justify Jihadic warfare by comparing it to the Christian and Jews' "just war doctrine" of self defense. Muslims point to God's direction for the Israelites to kill and exterminate the pagan Canaanites, Amalekites, and Amorites from their occupation of the Promised Land. Our author's article demonstrates that such a comparison and justification is flawed because while it is a discerned judgment on those idolaters and is a protection for God's people, it was certainly not a paradigm for violence for Israel to pursue, and certainly was not for Christians. So, is Islam a peaceful religion - not scripturally, not historically, and ultimately not spiritually.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Know the Truth When Everyone's Going to Hell 28 May 2013
By Miriambird - Published on

I wanted to like this book. I wanted it to shed some light on the strange dichotomy we seem to have going in the world, with some calling Islam a religion of peace and some unafraid to look at the actions of the Muslim groups that are at odds with that claim. I wanted to know if Islam in itself is incompatible with the peace most of us expect to be inherent to religious belief systems.

While the author seems to present a lot of evidence that Mohammad was basically a narcissist who made up a religion in order to conquer and to meet his own selfish needs, I can't verify the resources he uses. Not that I have tried very hard, but with many references being written in Arabic, I just wouldn't get that far in my search.

So, I researched The Areopagus Journal. I wondered if it had something to do with St Paul or Dionysius the Areopagite. It's a defunct Presbyterian journal, now only available online. While some of it seems interesting and even compelling, it didn't take long to find out that Catholics, Muslims, Jews and most likely many others are going straight to Hell. Yep, every last one. With a sweeping damnation of so many people of different faiths (including mine), I just have to wonder if this whole work is flawed with anti-anything-but-protestant bias.

Who should read this book? I would say American Muslims should. Maybe you will recognize the truths and the untruths the book contains, whereas I wouldn't. If you're not a Muslim and are curious about the religion, I don't think this is a very good place to start unless you are interested only in a myopic about Mohammed.
