Эта книга посвящена пророку Мухаммеду, который основал одну из трех основных мировых религий – ислам, и мирной проповедью объединил вокруг себя массы людей, а затем, уже в качестве политического деятеля и полководца, создал мощнейшее государство, положившее начало Арабскому халифату. Книга неожиданно понравилась. До начала чтения существовало предубеждение поводу стиля изложения, ведь книга-то писана в 19 веке. Но нет, все очень динамично, фактологично, с интересными выводами и обобщениями.<br />В романе в приятной и не занудной форме излагаются факты биографии Магомета, все его шаги по пути пророка новой религии, унижения и оскорбления, которые он смиренно вынос& [...]

"Stay cautious of your nafs [ego]. No trial has afflicted you except through it. Do not make peace with it, for by God, no one can bring honor to it except one who has humiliated it, and no one can bring greatness to it except one who has made it insignificant and submissive, and no one can make it whole except one who has broken it, and no one can bring rest to it except one who has exhausted it, and no one can bring security to it except one who has frightened it, and no one can bring happiness to it except one who has brought sadness to it."<br /><br />This book provides a wide selection of quotations taken from ten of the best books of Ibn al-Qayyim (full name Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah), famous Medieval theologian and spiritual writer and companion of Ibn Taymiyyah, translated into easy, accessible English for the modern reader.

Diferentes ramificações da mesma religião constituem mais uma exceção do que uma regra e tiveram um impacto profundo na história. O cisma entre as Igrejas Ortodoxa e Católica influenciou as relações entre nações por toda a Europa e, a intolerância religiosa baseada em diferentes fés cristãs levou a perseguições e total violência por todo o continente durante séculos. A Reforma Protestante separou ainda mais o Cristianismo e os resultados culminaram na incrivelmente destrutiva Guerra dos Trinta Anos no século XVII.<br /><br />Atualmente, a separação religiosa mais importante é entre Sunitas e Xiitas no seio do Islão. Contrariamente a outras divisões de fé - entre Judeus Conservadores e Ortodoxos ou Cristãos Católicos e Protestantes -, a separação entre os Sunitas e Xiitas tem existido ao longo quase da própria fé e, rapidamente emergiu de tensões criadas por crises políticas após a morte do profeta Maomé. De certo modo, as diferentes formas do Islão que existem agora, surgiram essencialmente de fações políticas no seio da unidade de crentes muçulmanos.<br /><br />Ao longo de muitos séculos, os Cristãos têm praticamente conseguido viver ao lado dos seus correligiosos, mas a separação entre Sunitas e Xiitas é ainda tão pronunciada que muitos aderentes de cada ramificação veem-se mutuamente com desprezo, se não como apóstatas ou não crentes. A divisão religiosa é por ventura a mais importante descontinuidade no turbulento Médio Oriente de hoje, com nações Sunitas como o Egito e Arábia Saudita em desacordo com nações Xiitas como o Irão. A níveis mais baixos, grupos não-estatais como o Estado Islâmico e o Hezbollah estão a combaterem entre si de uma forma que atravessa fronteiras estatais, em lugares como o Líbano, o Iraque e a Síria. Apesar de ser tecnicamente uma separação na religião, a divisão tem tido ramificações substanciais e globais por décadas e parece que não há um fim à vista.<br /><br />A História da Separação entre Sunitas e Xiitas traça as origens da separação e os históricos esforços da maior divisão no seio do Islão. Juntamente com imagens de pessoas importantes, lugares e eventos, o leitor irá aprender acerca da história dos Sunitas e Xiitas como nunca dantes, em muito pouco tempo.

*Includes pictures<br />*Includes quotes from the Koran and Hadith<br />*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading<br />*Includes a table of contents<br /><br />“The most holy spot [al-quds] on earth is Syria; the most holy spot in Syria is Palestine; the most holy spot in Palestine is Jerusalem [Bayt al-maqdis]; the most holy spot in Jerusalem is the Mountain; the most holy spot in Jerusalem is the place of worship [al-masjid], and the most holy spot in the place of worship is the Dome” - Thawr ibn Yazid, circa 770 <br /><br />In the campaign leading up to the election of Donald Trump, the Republican presidential candidate frequently discussed the importance of moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. For many conservative Christian Americans and Israelis, this was tantamount to the United States agreeing to Jewish control over Jerusalem. As it stands now, the U.S. has a consulate in Jerusalem, yet no country houses their embassy in Jerusalem due to the conflicting claims of the Israelis and Palestinians. The political issue is just one more reminder of how important Jerusalem is as both a secular and religious flashpoint.<br /><br />One of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem is a holy and special city to the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Throughout its more than 6,000 year history, Jerusalem has been a center of contention, from conflicting clans to warring states. In addition to its religious significance, Jerusalem’s strategic location has also made the city desirable throughout history. <br /><br />While people in the West are more familiar with Jerusalem’s importance to Jews and Christians, Jerusalem’s particular importance to the religion of Islam is without question one of the major sticking points in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Prior to Israeli control, Jerusalem had been predominantly controlled by Muslim rulers since the 7th century and had been used as a type of political currency, legitimizing the ruling dynasty’s claim over the city. This right of control by Muslims was viewed no more differently than control over Mecca and Medina in the Arabian Peninsula. For the world’s Muslim population, Jerusalem is a holy site because Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad visited Jerusalem where he ascended to heaven during the famous “Night Journey.” There was also a period of time during the Prophet’s life when Muslims prayed in the direction of Jerusalem, as opposed to Mecca. Just as in Judaism and Christianity, Jerusalem plays a central role in End of Days prophecies in Islamic theology. <br /><br />As a result, Jerusalem has been an important symbol for Muslims for nearly 1,300 years, and it has played a crucial political role throughout the history of Islamic civilization as this important city has passed from ruler to ruler and dynasty to dynasty. Now that the city is again controlled by a Jewish state, Jerusalem has even further implications for various religious groups, and it will certainly affect the conflict-wrought region.<br /> <br />Jerusalem and Islam: The History and Legacy of the Holy City’s Importance to Muslims examines the tumultuous history of Jerusalem and its relationship to the Islamic world. Along with pictures depicting important people, places, and events, you will learn about Jerusalem and Islam like never before.

Civilization Suffers Where Islam Rules <br /><br />When the terrible events of 9/11 struck New York City, I was astonished that there were such a large number of people in the Islamic countries of the Middle East who hate us, who danced in the streets and burned our flag shouting, “Death to America” when they heard the tragic news. The fact that our sovereign country was invaded, property destroyed, and thousands of innocent Americans were murdered by this sneak attack, this act of war stirred me to find out who did it and why. <br /><br />When we learned that 11 university-educated Muslim men (4 with PHD’S) performed this evil act simply because their God, Allah, the God of Islam, told them to do it, was disturbing enough but when further study revealed the fundamental objective of these Muslim fanatics is to take over the world with their philosophies, energized me to learn more about Islam and write this book. <br /><br />Author Bio: William is currently concentrating on developing his writing skills and is currently working on a second book which exposes The Threat of Islam to world civilization.<br /><br />He says he is an antique, living in an antique house in the antique village of Essex Connecticut where he enjoys a lifelong interest in yachting as a member of the Essex Yacht Club cruising on the beautiful Connecticut River. "Old age is not bad when one considers the alternative."<br /><br /><br /><br />Keywords: Islam, Threat of Islam, Islam – a Theocracy, Islam Hates Jews, Islam and Nazism, Islam and Isis, Islam and Terrorism, Islam – Violent Religion, Islam – Sharia Law, Islam at War<br />

This book combines contemporary discussions on modernity with the history of the Muslim world. From a heuristic perspective, it is sketching out a framework for a global sociology of modernity. This framework attempts to accommodate a core assumption of classical modernization theory – the global nature of modernity – with the pluralistic perspective of the rise of a multiplicity of historically concrete forms of modernities. It tries to reconcile a universalistic concept of modernity with the fact of modernity’s multiple historical realizations. At the same time, this discussion of contemporary social theory puts forward a critique of the still so conveniently applied equation of modernization with Westernization. In empirical terms, the book substantiates this critique in drawing its exemplary illustrations from the historical experience of Muslim peoples. Bringing Muslim history and discussions in social theory together, this book represents a synthesis of research efforts in sociology and Islamic studies.

The twelfth century CE was a watershed moment for mysticism in the Muslim West. In al-Andalus, the pioneers of this mystical tradition, the Mu'tabirun or 'Contemplators', championed a synthesis between Muslim scriptural sources and Neoplatonic cosmology. Ibn Barrajān of Seville was most responsible for shaping this new intellectual approach, and is the focus of Yousef Casewit's book. Ibn Barrajān's extensive commentaries on the divine names and the Qur'an stress the significance of God's signs in nature, the Arabic bible as a means of interpreting the Qur'an, and the mystical crossing from the visible to the unseen. With an examination of the understudied writings of both Ibn Barrajān and his contemporaries, Ibn al-'Arif and Ibn Qasi, as well as the wider socio-political and scholarly context in al-Andalus, this book will appeal to researchers of the medieval Islamic world and the history of mysticism and Sufism in the Muslim West.
What Is Moderate Islam?

<span><span>Radical Islam is a major affliction of the contemporary world. Each year, radical Islamists carry out terrorist attacks that result in a massive death toll, almost all involving noncombatants and innocents. Estimates of how many Muslims could be considered followers of radical Islam vary widely, and there are few guides to help determine moderates versus radicals. Observers often sit at the extremes, either seeing all Muslims as open or closeted jihadis or recoiling from any attempt to link Islam with international terror. Both positions are overly simplistic, and the lack of rational principles to absolve the innocent and identify the accomplices of terror has led to governments and individuals mistakenly accepting jihadis as moderate. What is Moderate Islam? brings together an array of scholars—Muslims and non-Muslims—to provide this missing insight. This wide-ranging collection examines the relationship among Islam, civil society, and the state. The contributors—including both Muslims and non-Muslims—investigate how radical Islamists can be distinguished from moderate Muslims, analyze the potential for moderate Islamic governance, and challenge monolithic conceptions of Islam.</span></span>
