Books on Islam You’re Not Supposed to Read

leave a comment »

Robert Spencer, in his Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam, provides a number of books on Islam which he says “you’re not supposed to read,” according to the PC thought-police. I thought I’d give you the titles here for your own perusal, should you want to secure a copy of any of them.

A. Guillaume, The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah, Oxford University Press, 1955.

The Qu’ran. Spencer says: “Don’t believe what I am saying about the Qu’ran? Read it for yourself. The clearest most accurate translation is that of N.J. Dawood, The Koran (Penguin).” Spencer also recommends the translation by Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall.

Joseph Schacht, An Introduction to Islamic Law; Oxford; Clarendon Press, 1982.

Bat Ye’or, The Dhimmi: Jews and Christian Under Islam (1985), The Decline of Eastern Christianity Under Islam: From Jihad to Dhimmitude (1996), Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide (2001); all three are by Fairleigh Dickinson University Press.

Nuh Ha Mim Keller, Umdat al-Salik, or in its English title, Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law; Amana Publications, 1994.

I would add to Spencer’s titles the following:
