5 thoughts on “The Sword of the Prophet: Islam; History, Theology, Impact on the World

  1. Since there were believers and non-believers, the latter did all they could to attack the true religion of God and to make the believers abandon their faith. It happened with Jews as the believers (muslims) at the time of Moses PBUH (Peace Be Upon Him), when the pharaoh told all the lies about Moses, his religion and his followers. The same happened with Christians as the believers (muslims) at the time of Jesus PBUH. The Romans did whith Christians what the pharaohs did to the Jews. Now, the same is happening with Islam, the only religion with true monotheism that addresses God as being perfect, and invite people to worship Him ONLY!

    So, the hatred and lies in Trifkovic book are expected. It’s not the first book of its kind, and it will not be the last.

    If you want to learn about Buddhism, for example, do you read books by those who hate Buddhism?! So, for those who are sincere in seeking the truth, I encourage them to learn about Islam from Islamic literature! The books and videos of Harun Yahya may be a good start. For those who’re not seeking the truth, they will remember these words in the hereafter.

  2. Once again, until you can answer my question about why the growth rate of muslims doubled since 9/11 and is the worlds fastest growing religion at a rate of 10:1 on christianity even with all these negative views. Your books are not worth reading.

  3. This is a Muslim-bashing at its worst. Lies, half-truths and distortions do not history or truth make. While there are some truths mentioned, most were half-baked, twisted or distorted and without the full story.

    Other despicable acts mentioned are the work of evil humans who call themselves Muslim, but hardly act as Islam teaches. This is just like the Christian Crusaders, who boiled, roasted and ate babies (documented facts) on the First Crusade, the Spanish Inquisitors who tortured, maimed and killed in the name of Jesus, or Adolf Hitler and his cohorts, ostensibly Christians all, who perpetrated the most heinous crimes against humanity in recorded history. None of these acts had anything to do with what Christianity teaches either. So, why identify an entire religion with what a few of its so-called adherents did?

    Interestingly enough, Muslims wouldn’t dream of condemning Christianity for the acts of the Crusaders, Inquisitors, or Hitler, or anyone else. They believe that it’s the individuals who are at fault, not the religion. That’s how they see it. So, why can’t we? If Muslims or Christians, or those from other faith traditions were to follow the teachings of their faith – so similar among all the world’s major faiths world over – the world would be a much better place.

    Otherwise, what the author has done here is rehash old stories that have been disproved before and added one or two new ones (with one-sided explanations). This is a book for people who want to believe the worst about Islam and Muslims. As such, it is hardly “historical,” or “factual.”

    I’ve always found it interesting to see Christians so eager to attack Islam, while Muslims never attack Christianity in response. Perhaps that’s because they’ve been told in the Qur’an not to do so, nor to argue with Christians (except kindly) and consider them closest in faith to themselves.

    Some Christians, like the author of this work (if he is a Christian), all too often show Christianity at its worst. This is a trait too many Christians have shown, on behalf of Christianity, against all who disagreed with it since it became the religion of the Roman Empire at the end of the fourth century.

    This is not to say Muslims haven’t done bad things, or been bad people, far from it. But it does say that just as those Christians mentioned earlier who didn’t follow their faith and its teachings, so some Muslims – not acting as Islam taught – have done horrific things, too. As such, they are not considered Muslims – like those who flew the hijacked planes into the Twin Towers. Knowledgeable Muslims believe they’ve “gone to hell in a handcart” as false martyrs. Whether or not they were actually practicing Muslims, or just using the religion as a cover for their heinous crimes as so many have done since time immemorial, will be left up to a higher authority than us to judge.

    In conclusion, the publication of this book was a sad day for tolerance and understanding and, otherwise contributed nothing positive or good but only added immeasurably to ignorance about Muslims and Islam. Today, we are at war, but it’s a war led by morally bankrupt and un-Christ-like neoconservative fundamentalist Christians against Islam. And this book has joined in the fray.

  4. Well let’s see… I saw this book at the library and I was just talking about it so I thought I’d check amazon to see any other people’s reviews on it. Ofcourse the people who benefit from trying to make others look bad eagerly jumped at the opportunity to give such a book praise. And then the ones who felt threatened defended their religion.

    I was born and raised Muslim and now, I do not follow any particular religion. I pray, to Allah, God, Christ, Vishnu – whatever, because it doesn’t matter. As it says in “A Course in MIracles” the last thing the world needs is another religion.

    My view on Islam is that it is beautiful. The most important thing is not the religion but the fact that it helps you get to God. It’s a start…

    Writing these kinds of useless books only serve to add fuel to the fire of ignorance against Muslims. No religion is right, so stop trying to prove that point.

    Anyway, I was pretty shocked and offended at first but then I was curious to know what this man was talking about. Maybe a Muslim, or a group of Muslims really pissed him off one day and he’s on some crusade to right this wrong and warn the world of the evil that is Islam.

    Whatever, Christians get afraid the same way when people point out the flaws in their religion, you can do it with any one. But seriously, this stuff doesn’t seem as factual as it seems far fetched.

  5. The author cannot be trusted as a rational one. You need to know that his ethnic background prevents him from being a rational one. He simply hates Muslims because where he’s from. Ethic war has torn his country apart. Muslims of little understanding over there just hates everyone who is not Muslim, and they think they have the right to kill anyone who is not Muslim. This is a crime. “Killing Infidels” is NOT a general purpose term that serves the right to kill anyone who is not Muslim. The author does not present at all the historical reasons and conditions for when such verses apply. He is taking things out of context just like the media across the world.

    Again, you cannot trust someone with his heart filled with deeply rooted ethnic hatred. This book certainly serves the purpose of filling other hearts with hatred for the ones who wants to hate.
