message 1: by Wayfarer (last edited Jan 20, 2010 07:02AM) (new)

Wayfarer This listing of books does a great disservice to Islam, its great and glorious academic tradition and scholarly heritage by limiting the range of books to that which yields a very narrow and rigid interpretation of Islam and omits the beauty and profundity of this world tradition - instead leaving a very dry impression.


message 2: by Rasheed (new)

Rasheed This is a open and free list allowing anyone to add and vote.

Anyone can make claims unsubstantiated by proof.

I suggest that you quote directly from these books what exactly they contain of "narrow and rigid" interpretations.
