Salih Kuzucu (salihkuzucu) | 4 comments I recently finished reading "The First Muslim : The Story of Muhammad" (PBUH) by Lesley Hazleton. She attracted my attention by her speech at the TED talks on the Quran. I think the book was very well written for the Western minds that are readily criticizing every point in our religion. I can recommend it though, inchallah you can find your own enlightening points. I got mines.

Feather Stone (feather_stone) | 3 comments Forbidden, a suspense/thriller in the Middle East, will be FREE at for five days, June 19 to June 23. It has a 5 star rating.
Better Wear Your Flak Jacket
Gunfire echoes within the walls of a Middle East police compound. Screams of terror are brutally silenced. Police captain Hashim Sharif captures one survivor. Soon Eliza MacKay will wish she had died with her companions.

The vile act of terrorism is covered-up. Sharif becomes the reluctant keeper of his city's bloody secret - and the witness, MacKay. His corrupt superiors have a gun rammed against his skull. Disloyalty to the mayor will be rewarded with being buried alive.

Whatever the cost, his government’s honor must be restored. Secretly, Sharif hunts forensic evidence. Who is responsible for the murder of fifteen American volunteers? And, why did MacKay lie about her identity? He can’t trust her. Her mental illness is going to get both of them killed.

When he receives orders to dispose of MacKay, his Muslim faith is tested. Murder an innocent in cold blood? He will suffer Allah's eternal wrath.

CIA Agent Hutchinson has the lying Sharif in his cross hairs. Sharif dodges the agent’s traps almost as easily as the hitman on his tail. When Sharif discovers the shocking truth, he loses all hope of survival.

What is worth dying for? Perhaps it’s not bringing a madman to justice. Could it be saving the life of a woman who kick-started his numb heart? On the knife edge of risk, Sharif plots an act most forbidden and fatal.

Research: F. Stone took her time writing Forbidden to ensure the readers would be fully entertained and gain a fresh insight into Islam - moderate Islam. After years of study, and with the guidance of an imam and a Muslim physician, Stone discovered the gentle side of Islam. She met Muslims who respected all religions, who are peacekeepers, and guardians of the environment. The Koran's messages have suffered under years of misinterpretation when translated from Arabic to English. However, a book, The Clear Quran by Dr. Mustafa Khattab, provides a beautiful and accurate English translation of the word of Allah / God.

NOTE: Due to frequent scenes of violence and strong language, F. Stone recommends Forbidden to only adult readers. Both men and women who crave suspense with a touch of passion will savor each of Forbidden's thrilling chapters.

The Essence of Forbidden: Forbidden is both plot and character driven. Each character is alive and fully developed. A devout Muslim police offiForbiddencer is pushed to a dark place, forced to make critical moral choices. In the balance hangs his life and his soul. Facing his corrupt superiors is suicidal. Confronting his past is impossible until a woman with mental illness shows him what real courage looks like.
