Product Description

The most extraordinary man who arose after the fall of the Roman Empire was doubtless Mohammed; and his posthumous influence has been greater than that of any man since Christianity was declared, if we take into account the number of those who have received his doctrines. Even Christianity never had so rapid a spread. More than a sixth part of the human race are the professed followers of the Arabian prophet.<br />In regard to Mohammed himself, a great change has taken place in the opinions of critics within fifty years. It was the fashion half a century ago to speak of this man as a hypocrite, an impostor, even as Antichrist. Now he is generally regarded as a reformer; that is, as a man who introduced into Arabia a religion and a morality superior to what previously existed, and he is regarded as an impostor only so far as he was visionary. Few critics doubt his sincerity. He was no hypocrite, since he himself believed in his mission; and his mission was benevolent,—to turn his countrymen from a gross polytheism to the worship of one God. Although his religion cannot compare with Christianity in purity and loftiness, yet it enforced a higher morality than the old Arabian religions, and assimilated to Christianity in many important respects. The chief fault we have to find in Mohammed was, the propagation of his doctrines by the sword, and the use of wicked means to bring about a good end. The truths he declared have had an immense influence on Asiatic nations, and these have given vitality to his system, if we accept the position that truth alone has vitality...

ABOUT THE BOOK<br />This unprecedented study explores the way Islam and Muslims have been portrayed on America’s only “fair & balanced” network. The author closely examines the Muslim image throughout history, the systematic use of propaganda techniques in framing ‘the other,’ culminating in a meticulous study of Fox News’ most popular shows and the network’s impact on the Muslim image since 9/11. The book provides some practical tips on how to challenge the image of Islam and Muslims in the west.<br /><br />ABOUT THE AUTHOR<br />Dr. Mustafa Khattab is the translator of Canada's 1st English translation of the Quran (The Clear Quran), a member of the Canadian Council of Imams, and a Fulbright Interfaith Scholar. He received his Ph.D., M.A., and B.A. in Islamic Studies in English with Honors from Al-Azhar University’s Faculty of Languages & Translation. He lectured on Islam at Clemson University (OLLI Program, 2009-2010), held the position of Lecturer at Al-Azhar University for over a decade starting in 2003, and served as the Muslim Chaplain at Brock University (2014-2016). He has served as an Imam in the U.S.A. and Canada since 2007 and is the author of The Nation of Islam (2011) and contributor to the Encyclopedia of Muslim American History (2010).<br /><br />ENDORSEMENTS<br />Mustafa Khattab has written a well-documented, timely, compelling, and important work. He carefully documents the damaging role of Fox News in helping to shape stereotypical images of Islam and Arabs. His exceedingly thorough research will provoke a much needed discussion about how media systems impact public opinion and subsequently public policies. It should be read by media professionals, scholars, religious leaders, and others who wish to shatter harmful myths that injure a people and their faith.<br />Dr. Jack G. Shaheen, Author, Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People<br /><br />I think this is a terrific piece of scholarship. It is objective. It does have a focus, but I do not see it as an anti-Fox polemic. Polemics are inherently weak even if emotionally powerful. This work is indeed “fair and balanced.” Mr. Khattab has a mastery of English style that most English speakers would envy. His style is clear, clean, and concise without being overbearingly academic. That alone is an achievement. <br />Dr. William J. Bruehl, Emeritus Prof., Stony Brook University, New York, USA<br /><br />This work is an important contribution towards dispelling stereotypes about Islam in the American media and building bridges of understanding between the West and the Muslim world. I strongly believe we can all benefit from Mustafa Khattab’s scholarship and insight.<br />Hon. Thomas Lukaszuk, Deputy Premier & Former Minister of Education, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada<br /><br />Mustafa Khattab convincingly demonstrates that the images we have of the Muslim world are not reflecting reality, but are social constructions that have the ability to turn false perceptions into devastating potentials. The ultimate purpose of scholarship is to free humanity from distorting lenses that make us mistake stereotypical images for actual realities. In this work, Khattab has proven himself as a champion and master of this mandate. It is an impressive scholarly work with outstanding educational value. It should be read by scholars, students, and policy-makers alike. <br />Dr. Akan Malici, Associate Prof. of Political Science, Furman University, South Carolina, USA<br /><br />Fox News is usually characterized by its extremist views on Islam and by its lack of balance in reporting in cultural affairs. Those who wish to gauge the way this influence unfolds in Western public discourse will find Mr. Khattab’s analysis insightful and thoughtful, since for quite some time Fox News has been the source for Republican views in America and its views have increasingly dominated public perceptions of Islam and Muslims beginning with the infamous occurrences of 9/11. <br />Dr. Earle Waugh, Prof. Emeritus, Religious Studies, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada<br />

The contents of al-Kafi are precious gifts from Ahl al-Bayt (the fourteen infallible family members of <br />Prophet Muhammad PBUH, to their followers.<br />Each piece is as valuable as the wealth of the whole world. In this volume there are about <br />fourteen hundred pieces of such costly items but in the form of Hadith. Based on the above, one can <br />imagine the value of this precious gift from Ahl al-Bayt to their followers.<br />The followers and supporters of Ahl al-Bayt would not dispute that such <br />Ahadith are generous gifts to them.<br />The value of each item of such gift is mentioned in a Hadith from Imam Ja‘far al-Sadiq. <br />He has said, "One Hadith about the lawful and unlawful matters that you <br />may receive is better for you than the whole world and all that it contains." <br />How would an individual accept that these items are really worth so much?.<br />
