I first found out about this book on Al Jazeerah English and i knew i had to buy it. So i bought this book with excitement and it was one of the best decisions that i ever made. As a Muslim, i felt embarrassed and even angry about the entrenched backwardness in the Islamic world but it was this book that made me feel really proud of the past achievements of Islamic civilisation. Islamic thinkers truly have given the world a lot of great things-things that many people in the west take for granted. I recommend all the people in the world that know very little if not anything about Islam to read this book and learn from it. Islam promotes intellectual enquiry within human beings and that searching for knowledge is one of the greatest things that a Muslim can do in this life. Sadly, many Muslims have forgotten or just ignore this fact and believe that they should just pray fives times a day and that this will help them to go to heaven. Islam has not left the hearts and minds of many Muslims but it is many Muslims that have left Islam and yet do not know it. Buy this great book if you truly want to find out about the true Islam.
