Al kitab wal Qur'an ( Arabic)

This looks like a very good book, Highlander, I will most definatly check it out. You have a pretty intresting reading list. I personally am tired of the Taliban Phenomonon and the rise of "Islamism". Very tiring.lol. but thats probably because I have been reading about it since I was 16 years old.lol. In anycase super cool reading list.
