    "This book is very hard to read. The author does not put words together in an easy to read manner to say the least. It is just to technical for me. You may see things differently though, but I honestly had to struggle through it."

    "It was nice to see someone integrate scientific facts with religious texts. Ahmad managed to incorporate accurate information about how life came to be on this planet with the history and teachings of his religion. This book proves that Islam and its history can coexist with modern science."

    "This book focuses on the history of the Christian crusades, but from the perspective of the Muslims. This is a great take on the crusades as they apply to Muslim history, specifically. Any fan or enthusiast of Muslim history would likely find this an interesting and valuable book to fill out a very important aspect of that culture and region of the world."
