    This is an interesting book: The Great War for Civilisation
    Full Description

    This is an astonishing and timely account of 50 years of bloodshed and tragedy in the Middle East from one of our finest and most revered journalists. "The Great War for Civilisation" is written with passion and anger, a reporter's eyewitness account of the Middle East's history. All the most dangerous men of the past quarter century in the region - from Osama bin Laden to Ayatollah Khomeini, from Saddam to Ariel Sharon - come alive in these pages. Fisk has met most of them, and even spent the night out at a guerrilla camp with Bin Laden himself. In a narrative of blood and mass killing, Fisk tells the story of the growing hatred of the West by millions of Muslims, the West's cynical support for the Middle East's most ruthless dictators and America's ever more powerful military presence in the world's most dangerous lands as well as its uncritical, unconditional support for Israel's occupation of Palestinian land. It is also a story of journalists at war, of the rage, humour and frustration of the correspondents who spend their lives reporting the first draft of history, their weaknesses and cowardice, their courage and truth-telling.

    After reading "The Great War for Civilisation" the reader grasps just why those 19 suicide pilots changed the world on September 11th. Assessing the situation right up to the present day and reporting from the heart of a bombed-out Baghdad, Fisk examines the factors leading up to the coalition forces entering Iraq, and discusses possible outcomes of long-term involvement there.
    I haven't got it though I'm curious to read it. Just ordered a copy.

    Re: Recommend a Book!

    I like "Unveiling Islam" by Roger Du Pasquier as a good introduction to islam for non-muslims. I have "The Sealed Nectar" but I have only just started reading it. I would like to read "Purification of the Heart" by Hamza Yusuf (has anyone read this book?) and "Road to Mecca" by Muhammed Asad.

    and it's also so good to read when ur feeling down, it has the ability to lift you right up again so ur ---> again!

    So yeh, i would recommend this book

    w'salam
    It is a good book but it downright repetitive at some places. The scholar could have made it more flowery but I think it is ok for the general audience. And surely it gives one a ray of hope. I am still in the process of reading it. I got the English translation.

    Re: Recommend a Book!

    I recommend ' The Britannica guide to the Islamic world'.

    Blurb:
    "Today, there are nearly 1.4 billion practising Muslims. Founded in the seventh centuary AD by the Prophet Muhammad, Islam has spread throughout the world and Muslim communities exist in more than 200 countries. This guide explores the role of Islam, past and present, in forming the contemporary world of litrature, science, art, architecture, and scholarship. There is a valuable overview of the state of Islam today, which sheds light on the current conflict in the Middle East and the devision between Sunni and Shi'ites sects.
    With an introduction by leading commentator and author Ziauddin Sardar, the guide is an essential introduction to one of the key cultural forces of the modern world."

    Al Ghazali - Remembrance of Death & the Afterlife
    This book is incredible! It really focuses on what is certain for us all, death, and the sequence of events that follow after it. The book also gives a sense of inspiration and fear to get ourselves well prepared for the afterlife.
    Its a must read! I would say though, that Al-Ghazali's books go way into depth and its not that easy to digest some of his work. But overall its a fantastic book.

    If you begin to live life relating to the God who is all around you, every moment becomes a prayer.
