By Umar A. Hussain on July 19, 2006
Finally, someone steps up and writes a book that will help bridge the gap between Muslim and non-muslim thinking. Many question whether Islam is compatible with democracy, and Dr.Hathout provides the answers. He covers a plethora of humanitarian issues (womens rights, slavery, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the sanctity of life, among others)and disects Islam's perspective and stance on each. This is a must read for everyone, especially those who criticize Islam's place in the world, and especially America. Dr. Hathout shows the parallels between the accepted American ideals and Islam, and makes it easy for all types of readers to understand. This is a paramount guide for all who either appreciate or do not understand the truth of Islam. You WILL not find a book with the same type of unique insight!

Hathout bends over backwards to misrepresent and misinterpret history and evidence, in order to make Islam appear more modern, equal and compassionate than the Quran and hadith plainly state. For example, he tries to make Muslim husbands and wives appear "equal" in marriage. In context, "equal" in the Quran means equal in socio-economic family status, not equal in personal rights and privileges as people see it today. He mentions the surah on Women (4:34) completely ignoring the fact that men are told to discipline, "beat lightly" and divorce their wives, but women are never allowed to do this to their husbands- which is far from "equal." A wife must be faithful to her husband, but husbands need not be faithful to just one woman- because Quran and hadith clearly promote polygamy but not polyandry. While Hathout wants to make divorce appear to be difficult for husbands to execute, husbands can divorce wives by saying "I divorce you" just three times, while wives may not do the same to their husbands. Furthermore, Quran 66 notes that Muhammad nearly divorced his wives merely for revealing one of his secrets. He also consummated marriage with a 9 year old and had sex with a new "wife" the day after he and his army killed all her male relatives- hardly "equal" and genuinely consensual marriages. If you want to think that Muslim marriage is equal and other Muslim elements are socially acceptable, you can read this book. But it badly warps the actual evidence in Quran and hadith.
