1.0 out of 5 stars Fuzzy screen - Not crisp or crystal clear, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The screen arrived promptly and secured. It was very easy to restore. However, there is a fuzziness on the screen, when there is a white background; and sometimes blurry, too.

Muslims and the West
Muslims and the West
by John L Esposito
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and insightful, 22 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Muslims and the West (Paperback)
I found this book very helpful in understanding some of the history relating to the relation between Muslims and the Secular/Christian West; in addition to unraveling some of the secrets relating to certain attitudes and names.
Understanding the history helps to be better placed to interpret current relations. I also, felt that this book with is a compilation of several authors, was helpful in putting forward some good ideas about future relations.
The language of the book is very academic; and it can be a struggle to understand without appropriate referencing help.
All together: worth reading and I recommend it for all those who are looking to harbor better relations between Muslims and the West.

1.0 out of 5 stars Evangelical and illogical, 22 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Imam's Daughter (Paperback)
As a story, it is written to a mediocre standard. It makes interesting reading following the storyline. But it is clear - to me - that the purpose is evangelical. While it is sad to hear that any girl or woman is abused in any way and forced into a marriage; the book may not be a helpful aide for them. Some of the script seems illogical and to me, the story doesn't follow.

1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World
1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World
by Professor Salim T. S. Al-Hassani
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Intriguing, 27 Oct. 2010
A very well compiled book, which opened up my eyes to the amazing development of certain products which we use today. It is also, nice to see the contributions made by Muslim inventers and scholars highlighted as their positive contribution to the progression of humans. I have had the priviledge to attend the exhibition which is related to this book; and altogether brings the book to live. Highly recommended, especially for those intrigued with science and the history behind it.

Stepping into the Shadows: Why Women Convert to Islam

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly misguiding, 27 Oct. 2010
This book was purchased by myself to learn more about the reason why women convert to Islam; and to provide a deeper inside - perhaps - into the pschyology behind large conversions witnessed today. Instead, the book was more about how to combat and prevent women who wish to convert to Islam. The stories mentioned are clear to me: a reflection of most relationships or marriages. A lot of relationships start off by love and romance and high expectations. When the reality becomes clear, one or both partners realise that things can't remain red and rosy. So, this isn't restricted to women who meet and marry Muslim men. I was also clenching my teeth at the huge amount of the wrong information displayed in this book about Islam: like Ramadan ends on the 27th; that Jesus knows when the Day of Judgment is, and many others which would be pointless to list here. Having said this, I did benefit from the concept of this book. Altogether, I don't recommend it and find it extremely unhelpful for community cohesion.
