Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah

To be brief, I honestly found 'The Shia Revival' to be mediocre & left much to be desired. He had poor references for his points & seemed to be giving his own opinion many times [ which seemed very biased & uninformed ]. I found his analyses left weren't very in depth & I had an issue where he seemed to be trying to 'create' a split between Ayatollah Khoei & Ayatollah Khomeini.

This thread gives an excellent review of the book.

Right now I'm reading 'Western Civilisation through Muslim Eyes' by Seyyed Mujtaba Musavi Lari

Salam,

Currently I'm reading 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' by Khaled Hosseini.

I'm usually quick with reading books, but exams coming up as well as work is becoming quite hectic, so its taking me time to read through. Although, so far its been brilliant.

Allah Kareem

Regards,

Quran: A Poetic Translation

By Fazlollah Nikayin

There are a lot of books with small price tags by sheikh fadlullah haeri, i had the chance to buy 5 or 6 of his books. right now I am reading Journel of the Self. I recommend it and Begining's End.

Has anyone read Kernel of the Kernel? If so, what did you think of it?

Yes, the book is excellent. I would recommend the book form of Kernel of Kernel translated by Dr.Faghfoory over the electronic version that is now available in al-islam.org. I find you can acquire it from any Interlibrary Loan System from your local library/or even university, since it is a rare book to get a hold of. Buying it from the publisher, I think is another possibility.

thnks.. this one that im reading tho is amazing... usualy english translations dont help much because they themselves r difficult to understand, but this one provides a poetic approach which is more general but also very concise and touches the basic points of the original Quran.

oh ya and its also quite a price to pay, but its something i think even my children could benefit from.. so i dont mind the price tag ... if ur gna spend money might as well put it to good use right?
