With this volume, Dashti took the courageous step of looking at Mohammed as a human: capable of mistakes, capable of anger, capable of being unjust, as are any of us. This perhaps, is what kindled so great a rage in the men who imprisoned him and tried to obliterate his words. I wouldn't call Dashti anti-Islamic, for I found nothing suggesting he was trying to destroy Islam, not a speck of evidence that he was trying to promote Atheism in the stead of religion. However, I am not surprised that unreasonable forces who disagreed with his point of view felt so threatened by his words. It can be a dangerous task, sorting out the facts--especially if those facts disagree with popular opinion, or the version supported by people who are more powerful and can make your life tough. Or take your life away.
Make a fundamentalists eyes bug out, make an Ayatollah's face turn red--buy and READ Ali Dashti's book. Keep the idea alive and appreciate the freedom to have ideas that are forbidden to so many others.
This book tells the good and bad qualities of Muhammed in a restrained fashion and yet whilst reading this book, one cannot help but be touched by the fact that this brave soul Mr. Dashti, was tortured to death by the very menace he was criticising....Islam!!
One would hope that Tony Blair and Pres. Bush would have this book on their night stand......perhaps it would cure them of this politically correct nonsense that Islam means peace!
Mr. Dashti died according to Islamic teachings that he rightly rebuked in his tome her........after all, any Muslim that leaves Islam as per the Sahih Hadiths is to be executed!
We need more brave writers like this chap!!
I cannot help but recommend this book highly!!!
As there are very few honest men who write
books about Muhammad, this book is certainly
helpful for people who want to know the truth
about the prophet of Islam. Sadly, the honesty
of this brave author cost him his life. This
is typical behaviour of Muslims and this book
will explain how Muslim terrorists are emulating
their prophet Muhammad.
The author lays out the facts of Muhammad
and how gullible and illiterate his followers
were. The author also explains how Muhammad
attracted so many followers and how his
"revelations" (the Qur'an) depict his
frustrations, anger and turbulent life.
Although this book is very damning and
rubbishes Muhammad's prophetic claim, it
is invaluable to the brave Muslim reader
who wants to know the truth about his
It also lists Muhammad's ungodly behaviour,
e.g. when he ridiculed a blind man
who was interested in Islam and how
he ordered the assassination of a poetess
who ridiculed him. This is just the tip
of the iceberg.
It is definitely of great value to my
brothers and sisters in Christ who are
involved in dialogue with Muslims. Remember,
pray before you engage in such action!
