Book Review: How Fatima Started Islam: Mohammad’s Daughter Tells It All | Faith Freedom International

  • tags: no_tag

    • The new book, “How Fatima Started Islam: Mohammad’s Daughter Tells It All” by Noor Barack lampoons Islam and pushes the envelope of provocation and Noor is pushing the door toward a Fatwa.
    • The satirical novel is a first person account of early Islam written by Fatima, daughter of the Prophet. In it, the highly intelligent and beautiful Fatima looks back to the early history of Islam and explains how the modern world has gotten all the facts of early Islam totally and completely wrong, and how the true facts came to be so radically altered.
    • In the book Mohammad is a slow-witted, alcoholic owner of Mohammad’s Saloon & Brothel who, after a head injury, begins to have strange periods where he rambles on-talking nonsense in random syllables. Fatima, the brightest in the family by far, just short of her 13th birthday, seizes the opportunity to change her miserable life and pretends to be able to interpret Mohammad’s gibberish with wise sayings and thoughts. This is how the Qu’ran and religion are born. Fatima does this to try to bring peace, prosperity, equality, and justice to Arabia and the world but circumstances eventually thwart her goals and a mean, ugly, and oppressive religion emerges over what Fatima wanted and strove for.
