Book Description HTML

How is it that some of the western-educated, non-conformist, Muslim youth all over, not to speak of the fresh converts from other faiths are pitching in to fight for Islam and die for it? Possibly in a new non-fiction genre, this thought-provoking work delves into this least explored aspect of the Islamic ethos. And this is done, aided by “I’m Ok – You’re Ok”, the path-breaking work of Thomas A. Harris and Roland E Miller’s “Muslim Friends–Their Faith and Feeling”, this book, for the first time ever, psycho-analyzes the imperatives of the Muslim upbringing, which could turn a faithful into a fidayeen. This is a book for our times, and it's a free ebook.
