Hekmat is no holds-barred

Reader comment on item: Women and the Koran: The Status of Women in Islam

Submitted by Robert Predosa (United States), Sep 16, 2004 at 20:47

Anwar Hekmat doesn't hold back for a second in this book!! "Women in the Koran" tells readers a tale of a man that, if we knew nothing else prior, we would certainly detest with every fiber of our being, so to speak. His portrayal of Muhammad's barbaric nature, polygamist lifestyle, and, not to forget, his very convenient connection with Allah as the last prophet for God's word, is shown to us in a very different light than any of us might have previously known. Hekmat flips the switch on the Koran and, showing us what it did to women in Islam, and let me tell you, the light is very bright indeed!
