Editorial Reviews Review

Craig Winn's controversial and inflammatory work, Prophet of Doom, begins with this statement: "Islam is a caustic blend of regurgitated paganism and twisted Bible stories. Muhammad, its lone prophet, conceived his religion solely to satiate his lust for power, sex, and money. He was a terrorist." Needless to say, the book is certain to offend Muslims for it disparages nearly every aspect of Islam. Winn attempts to deflect such criticism upfront by claiming that he is merely quoting the Qur'an and other Islamic texts and is therefore "just the messenger." Further, he claims that he is unconcerned about being offensive because his goal is to educate people about the root causes of terrorism and the inherent dangers of Islam in the same way that early translators of Mein Kampf tried to warn an unsuspecting world of Hitler's intentions. "If we don’t shed our ignorance of Islam, many more will perish," he writes.

Admittedly, prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, Winn knew little about Islam. According to the author, the tragic events of that day led him to investigate why Muslims were so intent on killing Infidels, Americans in particular. He also claims to have interviewed members of al-Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, and Hamas, and studied Islamic texts, referring to five different translations in the process. Blending these translations in order to express the nuances of the writing to further his premise, Winn selectively quotes from the Qur'an, various Islamic texts, and the biography of Muhammad, to make his case that that Islam is the "world's largest and most violent organization" and "rotten to the core." Rather than educate readers about the Islamic faith, the book's sole purpose seems to be to shock and inflame readers---and in that regard it succeeds. --Shawn Carkonen

From the Author

There is but one Islam, a singular correct view of Muhammad, his religion, and his god. It is the one found in the Qur'an and Hadith. There is no independent record of Muhammad in history from which a variant view may be drawn. The Hadith and Qur'an are the sole repository of information on this man, his times, means, and mission. The Muhammad of Islam, the god of Islam, and the religion of Islam must be as these sources present them. Prophet of Doom is dedicated to exposing Islam's scriptures and what Muhammad had to say about himself, his ambition, religion, and god...

This is the book that changed my life. I am extremely grateful to the author for writing this book and saving my soul from eternal damnation. God is not hatred, He is love. He is not a Jihadi, He is a Savior. He does not tell to kill, but to forgive. His heaven is not a place of all sorts of perversions but a place of peace, truth and love. I give 10 out of 10 for this book and salute the author and the publisher for bringing out this book. It will save the souls and lives of many more muslims from eternal damnation.

Before I go any further, a word or two about perception. Everyone thinks that what he/she believes is true; What others believe is immaterial or incorrect. But the fact remains that out of the 4 major religions - Judaism/Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Athetism/Communism, only one is true. Believing in one, automatically makes the others false. People might not realize this; but it is precisely this mutual exclusion principle that holds. There is another group which states that all worship the same God, even though the paths of worship are different. They compare God to a mountain top and religion to different paths to get there. Is this is so, then why do our holy books contradict one another. Which is true - Killing/Jihad will get us to Heaven(Islam) or Forgiving(Christianity), Reincarnation(Hinduism) or Resurrection(Christianity), Man is God(Hinduism) or God became Man(Christianity), There is a God(Religion) or there is no God(Athetism), Idol worship is the greatest sin on Earth(Christianity) or God wants all Idol Worshippers killed(Islam) or Idol worship is the path to God(Hinduism). This diffence is one thing that Craig Winn brings out in his book.

Reading some of the reviews over here amazes me.

First time I came across the content of this book on its website, I was shocked and repulsed beyond words. I thought that perhaps the author was just making stuff up, as Muslims always fooling themselves and others by stating that all written in this book is a lie, while in fact the evidence is overwhelming and undeniable.

Many months after coming accross the book's website, after being briefly exposed to the light of truth and rejecting it, I was desperately trying to convince myself that Islam is not as bad as portrayed in "Prophet of Doom", desperately searching for the moderate Islam on the web, but the harder I tried, I found it more repulsive and violent. Eventually, I stumbled across Ali Sina's Faith Freedom International website, and once I saw how much sense he makes in his writing, and that no one is able to refute him, I realized that I cannot fool myself any longer.

Shortly after, I decided to dive deeply into the Islamic scriptures, and see what they have to say, so I decided to listen to this book on a CD(Available for free on the book's site), and the further it went, the more I realized how bad Islam actually is. This book contains everything one needs to know about Muhammad and the nature of Islam as derived directly from its scriptures. I recommend everyone, Muslims and non-Muslims alike to read this book and learn the truth.

Muslims should read this book to see why they should be embarrassed for being part of such hateful, intolerant and violent religion. If I were a Muslim, I would definitely been embarrassed by now. At first you might find reading this book uncomfortable, but once you face the truth, you will be eternally greatful to the author. Trust me, this book is worth your time.

This book is difficult to find but can be read online. It is an amazing book. Anyone who is familiar with current events or familiar with history should already be aware that that there is a strong fanatical element within Islam. What Craig Winn does is to show that the fanatical element is a very basic part of Islam.

Muslims seem willing to do anything to attack this book and that includes lying about it. It is a basic tenet of Islam that is OK to do almost anything to promote Islam and its path and that includes lying about it when necessary. Most religions look for truth and try to follow the path of truth. It is important that non Muslims understand that Islam is not looking for truth and has no desire to find truth. In the negative reviews below you will find numerous reviews attacking Winn and this book that are full of lies. The recent review below that states that "all the quotes that are in this book are fake" is a complete lie. Winn goes to great effort to cite his sources and even a child with a copy of the Koran can see that Winn's references to the Koran are completely accurate.

If you have any questions about the underpinnings or goals of Islam, read this book.

I have studied world religion for over 25 years. I have to agree with Don. Most of those who are writing reviews have not read this book, have not read the whole Koran and or any history.

The book, the facts and history are all real. Not even most Muslims know their own; written words, their religion or the history.

You also need to keep in mind evil likes to hide and wait. If you are one of those people who think Nazism was wiped out in WWII, and that the Koran is a book about God's love, then this book is not for you.

_____ Update:

If you want a real review, you can not get it here. The hate is listed here in review, is evil trying to hide itself. The Koran is an evil document. It has speared to those who are lazy and wish to control others by fear and slavery. Look at all the Islamic history, nothing but violence, that is start by Islamics, but then blame on others. There is no positive coming from Islamic countries other then oil, which I am not to sure is good. All Islamic countries are second and third world, who can not accept (due to the Koran) freedom of will and democracy. And all Muslims use a much distorted pass history to justify their current evil.

Islam never takes responsibility for its evil. Satanism teaches the same things.

Winn's book is a wake up call to the world of the growing Evil. Read this book and the Koran and you will understand just how evil and dangerous all Muslims are.
