Heaven on Earth free pdf Ever since 9/11, fears about the shari a Islamic law have been spreading. A word that originally conveyed nothing more sinister than a direct path to water has become associated not with salvation but with brutality and compulsion. And as the legal historian and human rights lawyer Sadakat Kadri realized when he began writing this book, we are all worse off for not knowing its true meaning.In "Heaven on Earth," Kadri recounts Islam's thrilling and turbulent history with wit and precision and shows how fourteen hundred years of tradition have been turned upside down in just forty years by hard-line extremists. Traveling through more than half a dozen countries, he explores how the shari a is currently perceived by scholars, critics, and ordinary believers alike."Heaven on Earth "is a brilliantly iconoclastic tour through one of humanity's great collective intellectual achievements. At a time when the shari a is shaping political crises and the lives of more than a billion Muslims worldwide, Kadri clarifies the realities of modern Islam and helps us anticipate how it is going to look in the future."
