Reader comment on item: Islam: The Arab Imperialism

Submitted by Alana Foster (Canada), Mar 21, 2006 at 18:03

Just to let you know, Anwar Shaikh is notorious for being a bad source. I was trying to write an essay using some of his examples, and his sources are all off. He gives faulty references for Ayas in the Qur'an, some of his more interesting (and controversial) quotes (namely those from the haditha) are not sourced, or no one has heard of that particular hadith.

So be wary when reading his stuff... if wanting to prove your point objectively (regardless of whether I agree with you or not), Anwar Shaikh is a bit of a joke as far as academic, objective writing goes...
