Pada bagian Swords of Islam, diuraikan bahwa pedang bukan saja sebagai representatif dari kekuasaan dan eksistensi diri sang pemilik. Tapi juga sebagai lambang kebesaran Islam. Banyak hal yang menarik di bagian ini.

Aneka ilustrasi dengan foto berwarna membuat buku ini menarik untuk dibaca.Terdapat lebih dari 400 ilustrasi akan membantu pembaca untuk lebih bisa menikmati buku ini.
