4.0 out of 5 stars Great book to read, 10 Dec. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Siege of Mecca: The Forgotten Uprising in Islam's Holiest Shrine (Paperback)
Ive read this book over the christmas period and it was a wonderful book to read, it is written very well and very detailed. It is shocking that this part of History is ignored and wiped out from the media, hardly anybody heard about this event happening in Saudi Arabia and those who heard claim Iran was behind this but it is not true.

The reason i gave it 4 rating is because it contains some information which i believe is not true, such as that the Muslims before wahabi version of Islam came to Saudi Arabia used to worship trees, graves etc. This is not true as those Muslims who were there before wahabi version of Islam appeared in the Mid 17th Century, were the true Muslims as they followed the Islam that started 1400years ago, by going to the graves of Prophets, Saints does not mean they worship them, as worshipping other than God takes a Muslim outside the fold of Islam. What actually happened was that the founder of Wahabi version of Islam (which is not true Islam) falsely accused the Muslims of worshipping graves, trees so that he can kill them and declare Jihad against them and at that time Saudi Arabia was ruled by Ottoman Empire. The reason Muslims visit the graves of Prophets, Saints is because we believe in Intercession and we believe they are Gods friends and God grants our wishes with the Intercession of his beloveds.
