Smaller Signs of the Day by Muhammad bin Bayyumi

* Picture from Amazon*

Format read: Hardback

Genre: Islamic

Rating: 7 out of 10

Plot: This goes through some of the minor signs of the Day of Judgment.  The minor signs are signs that occur prior to the events that signal the end of the world and are divided into three categories: signs that have occurred and will not occur again, signs that have occurred and will continue to occur, and signs that have not occurred yet.  This book covers some of the signs from each category.

Opinion: This was a quick read for me; I managed to finish it in a day.  As far as editing goes, this is one of the better jobs that I have seen: there wasn’t a lot of redundancy and I didn’t notice any nonsensical sentences.  I think this book is written clear enough for someone who doesn’t know a lot about the Muslim version of the end of the world to understand without much difficulty.  There were only two areas that I was disappointed in: first I think the book should have included more of the signs, and secondly, I think the author should have gone into a little more detail.  Overall I don’t think this is a good book for someone who is somewhat knowledgeable about these signs but it is a great book for a new Muslim or someone who is just curious about what Muslims believe about the Day of Judgment.
