4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By abdul kaffur on June 11, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is a very interesting book which offers the writer who is a sufi saint viewpoint that blind adherence to islamic sharia and those who oppose it both get a rebuttal.The book is quite good it could have been better if only the english translation was reproduced without the arabic text nonetheless those who understand arabic will appreciate it much more,I opine that the author does not have the final answer to this polemical subject,as viewponits are subjective to the conditions of the faith of the people
