Reader's comments


Allan Hansen:

Dear M.A. Khan. I am now reading your masterpiece: Islamic Jihad. It's the best I've read since Why I am not a Muslim (Ibn Warraq, 1995)

I am trying if I can persuade a Danish historian, journalist, writer and president of Freedom of Speech foundation, Lars Hedegaard, to translate your book into Danish. Lars Hedegaard is the translator of Why I am not a Muslim.

Aasma Riaz:

Thank you so much for your book "Islamic Jihad" and showing me the "Big Picture". For 7-8 days, I was glued to your book, absorbing so much information that I did not know existed. You have crisply covered so much in your book and quoted historical references extensively. I am just overwhelmed with different emotions after reading your book. I will take a printout of your book, cover it with spiral binding and a laminated cover, and circulate it cautiously within my immediate circles. That is the very least I can do in terms of doing justice to such a priceless tome.

Randall E Otto:

I'm about halfway through the book and find it meticulously detailed in explaining the violent and often barbaric expansionism of Islam historically.  Thanks for providing us with this detailed analysis of the history of Islamic imperialism.

Dr Anil K Vajpayee:

"I read your book on Islamic jihad. I think it is one of the best books I ever read on Islam. It is highly informative and insightful."

Slant Right Blog:

"Islamic Jihad is so incredibly documented that it leaves little room to criticize the book for the accuracy of the Islamic exposé. So do not tackle this book for reading enjoyment, rather engulf the book to educate your self on the actual nature of Islam’s past to understand its present and predict its future."

Ayesha Ahmed:

"Your book is amazing, you have done a fantastic job. The info I found in it I had never seen before. Actually I have started going over it again. Only other books I read twice previously were Craig Winn's Prophet of Doom and Ali Sina's Understanding Mohammad. I congratulate you on writing a masterpieace.."

"Mr Khan: I congratulate you on your excellent book, which I finished reading last week. Although I have read several good books on similar topics, including Dr. Bostom's book "Legacy of Jihad" and Mr Ghosh's book "Islam and Kafir" but your book takes the cake. It is a "must read" for Muslims and non-Muslims."

M. Sharif:

I have bought your book, Islamic Jihad, from the Amazon and found the book to be extremely good and informative.

Bill Warner (scholar of Islam and director of Center for the Study of Political Islam):

I am only half-way through your book, Islamic Jihad, but it is of such magnitude that I must congratulate on an extraordinary work. Your work is in depth and has a great scope. Much of the historical material is largely unknown and greatly needed. I believe that you have done a remarkable job on slavery. Your work is a blessing to humanity.

S. Z. Manik

I have just finished 'Islamic Jihad: A Legacy of Forced Conversion, Imperialism, and Slavery'. I congratulate you upon your valuable contribution. I would call it a masterpiece and great contribution to humanity... Actually like a spellbound man I have gone through your book. Now I will call it a mighty weapon against Islam.

C. C Chrappa (at Amazon.com)

A Must Read
Khan's work stands out from the field... a book that's a goldmine... With Khan's book, you will have solid amateur knowledge not only of Islamic history, but Islamic theology as well. For that reason, it is a threat to those who try to keep us blinkered about the reality of Jihad. And to open eyes was Khan's intention. He has succeeded magnificently... Khan depicts the life of Muhammad as a microcosm of Islamic doctrine and history, and he does so brilliantly.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Read it and learn.

Objective Reader, Amazon.com

With this book, M A Khan joins the ranks of luminaries like Ibn Warraq, Ali Sina, Bat Yeor and Geert Wilders.

Abul Kasem:

Khan’s work is very scholarly, persuasive and cogent. The language is simple, easy to understand, and engaging. Once started reading, readers would feel an urge to finish the book. No serious readers of Islam should ignore this book. Read this book and you will grasp why the Islamic Jihadis are doing what they are doing. Readers of the subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh), especially Muslims, will be shocked at the suffering their ancestors suffered at the hands of Muslim invaders from the Middle East and Central Asia. The compelling account of many invasions and subsequent incursions will force them to eagerly search their roots. Readers from elsewhere in the Muslims world, and even Europe and America, would also be able make a connection as to how Islam impacted lives of their ancestors.

This book is also a must read for today’s political leaders—both Muslim and non-Muslim—to shake off their apathy towards the mortal danger of ascendant Islamic radicalism.

Mohammad Asghar:

The book, "Islamic Jihad: A Legacy of Forced Conversion, Imperialism and Slavery", is M. A. Khan's gift to mankind. It is an essential read for all of us, for it depicts the true nature of Islam and the serious threat it poses to the safety and well-being of non-Muslims. I thank the author for giving us such a precious gift.

Prof. Sami Alrabaa, author of Karin in Saudi Arabia

"I read your book and found it fascinating. It is one of those few books which everybody, Muslims and non-Muslims, must read. It is objective and balanced. For example, when you discuss how moderates interpret Jihad and how radical/militant Muslims interpret it.

“Islamic Jihad” is a comprehensive reference which entails in detail lots of facts about Islam and its prophet, in historical and current times. It is very well documented. All that makes it a must read to all of those who want to understand the driving force behind Jihad and terror."

Dr. Mervyn Brendle, James Cook University, (Australia)

“I have read some sections and… look forward to reading it in some detail. It appears to be a substantial addition to the vital work underway in expanding our understanding of the history, nature, and danger of the global jihadi movement.”

Ibn Warraq, author of Why I Am Not a Muslim

This book, I believe, will be a very important contribution for making a thorough understanding of the rising challenges both Muslim and non-Muslim world faces from Islamic extremists."

Nonie Darwish, author of Now They Call Me Infidel

"This is a must read book, very important and eloquently written, that sheds light on the violent imperialist nature of jihad: a main doctrine in Islam that can only be accomplished at the expense of violating human rights of non-Muslims as well as Muslims."

Nausheen Najib Rehman (Rehman is translating the book)

"I had the good fortune of reading this magnum opus. The author demonstrates beyond any vestige of doubt with extensive documentation that the Jihadi violence and terrorism, which grips our world, comes from the very heart of Islam. This is a "must read book" for all.  The author (M. A. Khan) and Dr. Ali Sina are like two barrel-guns against the threat of Jihad, the world faces."

Mumin Salih (writer)

Your book is well researched and scholarly written. Its strength is in its style, rich insight, depth of analysis and the fact that it is well-sourced from Islamic own literature, including the Quran... The book also presents powerful arguments and critical examination of the teachings of Islam and its sanctioning of jihad. It brings to light the reality of jihad and the horrors of surrendering to its evil known as dhimmitude.

Your book is an essential reading for all those who are interested in understanding the menace of jihad.

Amar Khan

I have read half of the book. it is very versatile. And covering about all the aspect from history and contemporary. A must read book, indeed. One more thing, before start reading it, finish your works, because once you start reading, it will not let you move.......

I have read the old edition, but will buy the new version and give the old away to someone who needs some islam-enlightenment.

Keep up the good work mr. Khan!

Cover Picture
written by Brown Superman , June 12, 2011
Is that the picture of the blood-thirsty, necrophilic, sex-maniac pedophile, liar cum terrorist Mo' we see on the cover?

A man of peace attacking good people in the name of war-mongering Allah, whenever he wants booties, including women?

Even his wives could not tolerate his demonic activities.... that they conspired and successfully killed the pig by poisoning the food IT eats.

Islam is an endangered species that will soon go into extinction

We don’t know much of the past but we see the present to be all bad and evil and can predict the future which is also a day of doom for the adherents. The Bible says those who live by the swards shall perish by the sword. The bible says though hands join in hands the wicked cannot go unpunished.

Islam is an endangered species that will soon go into extinction. Those who have brain to reason with will know by now that Islam's days on earth are numbered. World is beginning to awaken to God’s eternal message to mankind which is Love. A civilized society starts on the principle of love and is sustained by love. God’s eternal word to mankind is that you love your neighbor as yourself. In case you don’t know how to love your neighbor and who your neighbor really is, the Golden Rule crown it all. “Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Mt 7:12

It is clear that Moderns laws and human rights are derived from this eternal law, it therefore follows that any person or nation that deviate from this human expectation will soon be a lone ranger and people will soon arisen to claim their right. The democratic awakening that is sweeping across North Africa and Middle East is pointer to this much expected dooms day for Islam.

Is there any dissident voice to this fact?
will i get it in pdf format for download and read it ? i can pay for same.

Very Pleased with this news
written by Ibn Kammuna , June 14, 2011
I am very glad to see that this new version of the book is out. I have the old hard copy. I will be ordering the new edition soon. Congratulations to all of us who want to uncover the truth about Islam and Islamic history. This book is a must for any serious researcher of Islam, its creeds and its history all over the world in the past 1400 years.
Thanks to our brother M A Khan for his selfless effort in writing such a great book.

I reccommend you purchase a book on basic communication, your vulgar approach is quite offensive to even those who agree with you. Note it is Allahuakbar, your spelling was off and I didnt want you to embarrass yourself further.
Islam - a collection of Hadis
written by Chanakya , June 17, 2011
Islamic Timeline
Leading business woman of Arabia Khadija hires a young merchant to work for her; the merchant is called Mohammed;
Mohammed works for Khadija and eventually marries the much older woman;
Mohammed than uses the money and power of Khadija to set up a political cult (around 610 AD) to control the toll collection at Mecca. The toll was collected from the Pagans who used to come to perform the pagan ritual of circumambulation of a rock during the holy month of Ramadan. Pagans called this hajj.
Khadija dies around 620 AD and Mohammed having never run a business promptly ruins the business and his cult is than banished from Mecca. The Jews of Yathrib (now called medina) offered Mohammed a sanctuary.
Mohammed and his cult followers than set up a piracy business and loot merchant caravans (70 piracy raids were launched in a space of 10 years). The loot was split 20% for Mohammed and rest equally divided and distributed to the pirates.
Mohammed dies in 632 AD and for the next 32 years to 664 AD his 4 top pirate leaders expand the piracy business to Egypt, Iraq and Persia and became rulers of this territory. The income was still based on collecting protection money called Jazia from the captured people.
To satisfy the restless population as to why they were being subjugated the rulers came up with a collection of stories about their leader Mohammed. This collection was written down via Kufic script into a book called the Quran and published around mid to late 8th Century (750 AD to 780AD).
However the story book (Quran) was without any context and meaning. A leading Arab was appointed to collect a, further, set of stories to prepare a biography of the leader Mohammed. This was completed around mid-ninth century (850AD). This was called the Sira.
As this still did not create enough rules a further exercise was implemented. A leading Persian scholar Bukhari was charged to collect a further set of stories of the leader Mohammed. Bukhari completed this around mid-ninth century (840 AD). This is called the Sahih Hadith or the true stories.
Based on the 3 story books (Quran, Sira and Hadith) 4 top scholars in Baghdad prepared legal rulings. These scholars were Imams (Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliki and Shafi). The Imams or scholars codified these rulings by 950AD.
This than became what is now called Islam. This is why no Muslim scholar has ever been able to produce a single document/parchment etc. about Islam prior to 740AD. There is no Quran, no Sira and no Hadith in writing prior to 740AD.
Chanakya- Thanks for a brief summary of Islam. This cult has evolved to be a religion of 1.5billiion deluded fellows
written by CLEMENT-THE ISLAM-WATCH PASTOR , June 17, 2011
This cult has evolved to be the most dreaded monster threatening the world peace to day. Oh if the world has known, oh if the Arabs of Mecca and the Jews of Medina had known, would have controlled the situation by wasting the evil genius and the cult leader Mohammed and the world would be the better of it.

@ Mussie Malem
written by Brown Superman , June 17, 2011
There is no need for any book on basic communication but probably one on spelling. Harkat Ul Jihad El Kafiroon has it right "alla hu fukb*a" and not as i stated (allahu-f**kbar). My apologies to all mussies.

By the way, it is not vulgarity but the basic language used when communicating to the mussies (that includes you). Their god is one faked by the blood-thirsty, necrophilic, sex-maniac pedophile, liar cum terrorist Mo' , and worshipped by the many million morons and imbeciles (well, that includes you too) all over the world who did not know the cult was spread by the sword and forced conversion. In many countries, it is death for those renouncing..... yet there are some willing to be dead than be a mussie (like you).

If you have any free time, and want to know the truth, I suggest you get M.A.Khan's Islamic Jihad. You do not have to buy it but steal from the library or any non-believer (as you mussies do since Mo's days). Truth hurts and therefore have plenty of pain-killers as you read.

What about Sudan???!!!
written by pipo , July 19, 2011
Mr. Kahn, If there is one country on earth which has seen 'Islamic Jihad' against infidels in it's recent history it is Sudan.
The raiding of villages the massacres, mass rape, slavery and forced conversion, the whole blueprint of Islamic Jihad was,
and maybe still is, practised in that country.
And as far as I know this has never been exposed and discussed on this website. Also the independence of South Sudan
has had no attention yet.
In general why is the role of Islam in (black) Africa being completely neglected on this otherwise great website.
@ Pipo
written by Editor, M. A. Khan , July 20, 2011
My book has discussed Islamic Jihad in the Sudan (ancient Nubia) in some detail. I have concluded in the book the Sudan was one of the oldest victims of Islamic Jihad, the most sustained and the worst in Africa -- which started very early in Islam and continues to the present day.

Yes, I agree that the sufferance of Africa at the hand of Islam has not been covered well in this website. It's because we don't have writers from that geographical locations with deep knowledge of Islamic incursion in Africa and how things are today over there.

Our writers contribute voluntarily; so we cannot direct them to write on specific topics. We have no resources to undertake a project on Islam in Africa either. But any contribution from anyone is welcome.

@Malem, as Brown Superman suggested, if you are keen to take a look at my book for free, send an email through our "contact us" form with your email included.
Then why

So your allah is easily offended by anyones few words. He is not God then is he. He is scared of idols. He is scared from others words. He is also scared from rationale and logic. Keep up you HA (head in the arse) attitude.

Gilamn is a compliment for your beauty and pearl like innocence. BTW was your toungue sucked when you were young. Were you also treated as Gandu when you attended Madarsa.
