Pain, Pleasure and Prejudice - Legacy Edition

The Koran arranged by topic and explained in a way we can all understand

Paperback: 828 pages. Comprehensive Index, 333,000+ words. Read it online.

Pain, Pleasure and Prejudice - Legacy is the culmination of more than a decade of work and study to bring order to what Thomas Carlyle [1795 – 1881] described as “a confused, jumble, crude, incondite (disorderly), endless iteration". Anyone can now quickly find out all that Allah had to say on any subject.

 

Pain, Pleasure and Prejudice - Legacy Edition may be too cumbersome or expensive for some, even as a paperback, which is why it has been broken up into six smaller books, all priced under $18.00.

Shared Prophets

Paperback: 264 pages. Read it online.

Shared Prophets brings together, in one place, revelations about the Biblical heroes, and the odd villain, whom Allah invited to strut their stuff on His stage, the Koran. Read about what they said and did and be both amazed and mystified

 

Women and the Koran

Paperback: 116 pages. Read it online

The Koran, where women are concerned is all about control, control over what Allah considers a woman’s innate desire to want to seduce every man in sight to satisfy an irresistible longing to touch and be touched, and thereby bring chaos to the orderly world of the Koran. Women and sex are also Allah's way of gaining and rewarding the loyalty of men, having come to the conclusion that men aspire to no higher ideals than to fornicate to their hearts content, in this world and the next.

 

From Merchant to Messenger

The Prophet Muhammad's struggle for legitimacy as revealed in the Koran

Includes a short biography of his wives and their impact on the Koran.

Paperback: 192 pages. Read it online.

The Koran is very much the story of a retired merchant's struggle to get his kinfolk, the Quraysh, the pre-eminent tribe of Mecca to accept him as a legitimate spokesman for the one and only God and therefore deserving of their unquestioning obedience. It was not easy, as hundreds of revelations will attest, with Allah being remarkably candid about what people thought of the man and the Book.

 

The Islamic Hereafter

Paperback: 132 pages. Read it online

The Islamic Hereafter is all about pleasure and pain – hedonistic pleasures and agonizing pain. The Islamic Hereafter is not for children whose parents are not into persuasion through terror. If Allah’s revelations about the appalling indescribable pain and cruelty unbelievers can expect on Judgement Day, and later when He confines them all in His Hell, are not enough to cause them to experience unforgettable bone-chilling nightmares, His Messenger’s ghastly visions of a claustrophobic zombie-like existence underground surely will.

Abrogated Verses

Let Me Rephrase That! Your Layman's Guide to Abrogations

Paperback, 204 pages. Read it online

A historical and motivational context, as I have been providing in my books on the Koran is important in understanding the Message; but, perhaps even more significant is knowing what revealed truths (immutable facts communicated to a mortal by a god), as inconceivable as it may seem, have been abrogated i.e. repealed or modified by an ostensibly omniscient deity.

Kids and The Koran

Children and The Koran - The End of Empathy

186 pages

A lack of empathy, whether it be an instilled pathology or a manifestation of loyalty to one’s tribe which we have encouraged by favoring religious distinctiveness over shared secular values, means we can no longer count that love of country or respect for Western civilization and what it stands for will see us through.

The threat that an absence of empathy and tribalism poses can be significantly reduced if we diminish the hate-that-binds; if we stop a god’s pathological loathing for unbelievers from corrupting innocence by making the Koran for adults only.

By having you read what children who should be enjoying Babar the Elephant or Cinderella are reading, I hope to convince you to try to do just that—for their sake, and ours.

Plays/Scripts

Alice Visits a Mosque to Learn About Judgment Day

Paperback: 80 pages

The character of Alice only bears a remote resemblance to the heroine of Lewis Carroll's tale of a young girl "who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures." The phantasmagorical world that the imam describes to Alice is not a fantasy, it is real (or will be), brought to life through Islamic scriptures and inspired dialogue about the most ominous of days that will be Judgement Day

Canada - The Fractured Nation Interviews

An Inquiry Into The Breakup

Paperback, 228 pages

In Progress

Going Swimming Fully Clothed

A Brief Introduction to Islamic Law

For a layman writing about Islamic jurisprudence it is not unlike going swimming fully clothed, metaphorically-speaking. You are constantly in danger of being dragged beneath the waves of your own logic as you struggle to explain things that on the surface (pun intended) defy common sense, if not reality itself.
