The Prophet of Peace: Teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

* Picture from Amazon *

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Islamic

Rating: 2 out of 10

Plot: This book emphasizes the peaceful aspects of Islam, although it really isn’t about the Prophet (s.a.w.)

Opinion: I read about 60 pages of this and just couldn’t go any further.  While I do believe there are some people who call themselves Muslims who twist the religion to serve their violent purposes, that’s about all I agree with the author about.  I don’t believe like he stated that most Muslims at least passively support those who engage in violent acts; I think most Muslims want to live their lives in peace and harmony and aren’t looking to shed anyone’s blood.  He portrayed Muslims as backwards, while portraying the West, particularly Western Europe as advanced.  This is the kind of stuff that I would expect from a Conservative talk show host, not from a Muslim.

Next book: Persepolis Volume 2 by Marjane Satrapi
