God is not the author of confusion( 1 Corinthians 14:33)
Sufyân ibn `Uyayna said: “Hadîth is a pitfall except for the fuqahâ’,” and `Abd Allâh ibn Wahb said: “Hadîth is a pitfall except for the Ulema. Every memorizer of hadîth that does not have an Imâm in fiqh is misguided (dâll), and if Allâh had not rescued us with Mâlik and al-Layth [ibn Sa`d], we would have been misguided.” (Ibn Abi Hatim, Dhahabi, Ibn ‘Abdul-Barr)

From the 100, a Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History
by Michael H. Hart
My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world’s most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels.
Some Christians claim that Islam is from Satan, despite the following verse in the Qur’an:
Qur’an 16:98 So when you recite the Qur’an, [first] seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the expelled [from His mercy].
Here is a short rebuttal to the argument:
It is in one’s own best interest to behave as if God exists, since the possibility of eternal punishment in hell outweighs any advantage of believing otherwise.
When I first picked up this book, I couldn’t put it down until I finished . Took me a couple of hours, and it was worth it. An impressive story of the life of one man from his humble origins as a Jew in Austria to his conversion and then his trek across Arabia by a dromedary (before the ‘Oil Boom’ that engulfed the region) to his eventual posting as a diplomat for Pakistan. The language and descriptive narrative will take you on a journey which you will never forget. I humbly suggest that you pick up a copy and read it for yourself.
