Islam Answers Atheism – Description

This unique work is a result of multiple engagements and debates in universities, mosques, private gatherings and elsewhere. The author, Asrar Rashid, takes on the more difficult questions taking us through a labrynth of Kalām, philosophy, logic, epistemology, science, the Qurʾān, Ḥadīth and Sharīʿa. The book covers in depth the proof for God, His divine attributes, the problem of evil, freewill and divine knowledge, the most difficult philosophical and scientific objections against Islam, as well as objections to Sharīʿa law, the Qurʾān’s historical preservation, the historicity of the Ḥadīth, slavery, Jihād, women’s rights and a host of other complex issues. This book is a must for all who are learning about Islam, Muslims and non-Muslims, apologists and detractors.

Reviews

Stars = 5

Excellently written and brilliantly dismantles the sophistry, chutzpah not to mention the absurdity of the modern day atheist using rational arguments and Ash’ari theology. Easily accessible chapters make it a great work readily on hand to answer the critics of Islam on the oft-quoted so called ‘objections’ parroted today e.g. jihad, slavery, women in Islam, concept of evil and God etc. May God reward the author and publishing team immensely.
