During the past couple of years, many religions have been attacked and portrayed as an extreme faith due to the behavior of certain groups and extremists. One, in particular, is the Islamic faith. The outcomes of these actions have made some to believe that Islam is radical and harsh.
Allameh Ja’fari, the well-known scholar of the Islamic world, has written a book titled “Universal Human Rights” in which he provides visible proof that Islam has no relation to these groups of extremists. “Universal Human Rights,” is believed to create a fresh new view on this sensitive matter.
This book represents the truth on what is, actually “fact” and what is “fake.” In this book, you will find references to declarations to the UN, Vancouver-Canada, the British and French Human rights and much more. Thus, proving that Islam is the religion of peace and equality. In general, the view of Islam is represented clearly within the content of its pages.
Although the work is translated from Arabic into Persian and from Persian to English, I was expecting some information to be lost in translation. However, the content was clear, and I could easily understand the point and message of which this book was giving.
There are times in life when one has to raise their head and look above and beyond the box they are living in. This scholar appeared to give an accurate perspective on this religion and was able to compare the subject matter in a fair way.
I recommend this book to people that seek a clearer view of Islam and the West.
