Hadith Books. The Saudi Crown Prince stated in an interview with 'Al-Arabiya' that the constitution and legislation will be based only on the Qur'an, with many hadiths being removed.

Tarek Fatah, a Pakistani-born Canadian journalist, and the author has been one of Pakistan's most outspoken critics, having been born in the very same nation. Tarek has been criticizing Islam and its radical religious teachings for years. One of the main targets of his criticism is Hadith, which is an Islamic term for documentation of the talks and acts of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad.


He claims in an interview with The Jaipur Dialogues that Hadith is irrational and lacks a chronology. He claims that a large chunk of it was authored by men after the Prophet's death and that Muslims have been mindlessly obeying it ever since.

According to a Muslim, the Prophet Mohammad is the most ideal example of humanity. Everything he did or said should be emulated by Muslims. They believe that the Prophet slaughtered 700 Jews with his own hands, though no such occurrence is mentioned in any of the Jewish texts. According to Tarek, Muslims have made up this story that killing Jews is the way of the Prophet, as there is no proof to support this claim.

He claims he went to Medina and looked over all of the sites and documents to check whether there were any mass graves of the 700 people slain by the Prophet, but to his amazement, there is no mass burial. As a result, there is no evidence that the Prophet massacred Jews, it's a fabrication that Muslims take great pride in. He discusses all of this In his book "The Jew Is Not My Enemy."

Tarek Fatah has spent his entire life debating the Hadith. He has now received surprising assistance from none other than Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The Saudi Crown Prince stated in an interview with 'Al-Arabiya' that the constitution and legislation will be based only on the Qur'an, with many hadiths being removed.

The powerful heir to the Saudi kingdom has discarded Hadiths, the backbone of Islamic culture. This hit all radical Islamists like a tonne of bricks.

The Saudi Crown Prince went on to reference hadiths, which are documented sayings of the prophet's words and deeds claiming that countries have died as a result of religious extremism. He also claimed that there are several Hadiths that have no connection to the Qur'an because they were penned 250 years after the Prophet's death. As a result, any penalty that is unrelated to the Qur'an will be rejected.

Speaking of moderation in the execution of Islamic laws, he challenged Wahhabism, a belief system founded by Mohammed Bin Abdul Wahhab, an 18th-century Saudi preacher who dominated for a long period in the Kingdom and internationally after spreading it for years across the Islamic world.

He said extremism is a severe concern and it is forbidden in all areas, and that the Prophet Muhammad predicted in one of his hadiths that extremists would emerge one day, and if they did, he would order them to be killed. Anybody who takes an extremist stance is a felon who will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, he further stated.

According to MBS, Islam requires reform, and Islamic legislation sources must be examined. The prince's declaration creates a separation, a foundational split with Wahhabism, and a genuine shift in intellectual direction. He has promised to return the nation to moderate Islam and has appealed for international assistance in transforming the fundamentalist kingdom into an open-minded society that encourages people and attracts foreign investment.

There are obvious signals that we need new ways of thinking about the world and our place in it all over the place. Our old ways of thinking about education, lifestyle, success, and happiness are no longer valid. What are the changes in the workplace? When future jobs are still being invented, how can you know what talents will be useful? Will 'jobs' even exist in the future, or will we be relegated to a world of projects and freelance work? What do you do with all of this and more?

What the Heck Do I Do With My Life? is a book on figuring out what you want to do with your life. Ravi Venkatesan argues that effective adaptation in the twenty-first century necessitates a "paradigm shift," a new attitude, new talents, and new techniques. Ravi also considers how, rather than drifting along like a piece of driftwood, we will need to live life more consciously, making deliberate decisions about who we are, what we do, and how we live.

It's A Wonderful World: A Memoir

His book is a provocative read that makes us wish we had a life like his. Khalid Ansari's life has been an exciting and purposeful journey in service to his fellow human beings, beginning with his birth in Mumbai's impoverished Madanpura to a father who began his life as an orphan and a mother from a poor household. Ansari has attempted to depict some highlights of a splendored life that he has been lucky to experience, catching stars while chasing rainbows in this 'donkey's tale'. It's been la vie en rose for him, from founding newspapers and magazines to representing his country at the United Nations, accompanying dignitaries on state visits, covering cricket Test matches, nine Olympics, Commonwealth and Asian Games, travelling the world, and being awarded the Padma Shri award. The author has worked hard to keep this narrative from devolving into a 'I-did-this-did-that' pat-on-the-back, shabash!' By 'spicing' it up with dollops of frothy stories and self-critical bon mots, he has attempted a discourse on the meaning of life, the 'right path,' and the like, even as he has attempted a discourse on the purpose of life, the 'right route,' and the like.
