New Groundbreaking Arabic Book: Peacemaking from the Quran
« on: December 01, 2012, 11:35:03 PM »
Peace everyone,

I would like to present a groundbreaking Arabic book entitled "Peacemaking from the Quran" demonstrates the meaning of peacemaking (islam) as well as concepts such as "salat", "masjid", "hagg", "ramadan", etc. The book is based in part on many of the valuable discusssions that took place right here on the Free-minds forum.

The complete book can now be downloaded from the following site:

www.quran4peace.org

I have also started working on an English version. I will let everyone know once it is completed.

Peace and best wishes,

Ayman

Peace.

May the god reward you for all your efforts.

I've already read it twice, except for the last chapter which wasn't uploaded yet. I like it very much. Each and every chapter surprised me, although I'm fairly familiar with your work. Just flat-out amazing!

Me personally I like the structure of the book and the order of chapters, but I don't know if that is the best way to go. I like the first two chapters and it's very easy to agree with them, even for sectarians; they do explain the "what" and "why" sufficiently. But the following chapters will be too much of a shock for most people I believe, that they won't even finish reading the book. Even though it's hard to disagree with, anything actually. So I think you took a "risk" with putting the last chapter last and not as one of the first chapters.

I already gave a copy of the first 6 chapters to an Iraqi woman and she was excited about the first two chapters and she told me the author is absolutely right. When I saw her the next day she read the third chapter, and let's say she wasn't that excited anymore. And I get the impression that, if it wasn't for me, she'd never finish reading the book.

The format is perfect for me. So I guess for someone who already rejects the ahadith this won't be an issue. I see you sort of combined "How did it come to this Part II" and "Know Thy Enemy" in the last chapter. I just skimmed through it, and now I'm actually going to read it.

جزاك اللهُ خيراً

Peace Ayman,

Is there an English version for this book? I would be extremely grateful!


Peace and blessings.  :yay:
49:17 They think they are doing you a favor by having submitted! Say: ?Do not think you are doing me any favors by your submission. For it is God who is doing you a favor that He has guided you to the faith, if you are being true.?
