MR A AL-HAMEED
A very mind opening and interesting bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 March 2014
I learned a lot by reading this book. Taught me about the methodologies used by schools of thought to reach conclusions before giving rulings. Also the concept of Awrah (nakedness) is not so clear cut as contemporary Muslims make it. There were lots of debates and discussions over this and various schools of thought did not have an unanimous opinion. Also other topics were heavily discussed and it makes sense that God's will is not known by a simple literal reading of the text, but by indicators and the effort expended in trying to search for it.

Khaled About El Fadi-- very painfully analysed the various Islamic jurisdictions of shii & sunni sects. Now most Islamic contries in Jahiliyyah so automatically destruction inevitable.
