Excellent podcast

Mr. Taif has accomplished a difficult task in offering a fair handed and substantive approach to a vast and difficult subject. This work is desperately needed and offers a strong counterweight to the biased and poorly researched material currently available. I offer my thanks to Mr. Taif and urge him to continue his work, I would highly recommend this podcast.

Filling a void in iTunes

Most Islamic Podcasts available on iTunes focus on the faith and it's practice or bland history. This podcast does not fall into either category, but rather tries to understand Islam on its own terms as a product of the culture that gave rise to it. As of the writing of this review, there have only been 2 and a half episodes, but if it fulfills it's promise and keeps up a semi regular release schedule, it will be a vital entree for anyone wanting to understand one of the major forces shaping our world.

Historical Islam

This podcast does an excellent job of covering the history of Islam and placing it in context. It is important to know the truth and understand the controversies as a citizen of the modern world for Muslims and for those of other faiths. I like how Amine presents the facts in the context of how the facts came to be recognized as factual, as well as, why we might not know the real truth. He does a great job of being analytical and avoids putting his spin on things.
Thanks so much for doing this!
