Khalil s volumes encourage us to perceive inter-religious dialogue on a deeper level than that of superficial do-gooders unable to understand the real difficulties of religious confrontation. --Marginalia
"Islam and the Fate of Others is a meticulous critical study of the interplay of religious supercessionism and exclusivism with religious pluralism and salvation in Islam. Mohammad Hassan Khalil mines Islamic scriptural sources and Muslim scholarship and analyzes how prominent religious scholars, past and present, have balanced religious supercessionism with a belief that a merciful God ordains that the 'righteous other' can attain salvation through other religious paths."
---John L. Esposito, author of The Future of Islam
"Mohammad Hassan Khalil has offered a brilliant theological insight that escapes all radical dyads, sorting humanity into believers and unbelievers, the saved and the damned. Khalil argues for a positive ambiguity, wanting to know but not finally knowing the Will of the One, the Unseen. His is a reading of salvation as welcome as it is novel, a deeply humble reading of all Abrahamic scripture, including and especially the Noble Book, the Holy Qur'an. A wondrous, engaging book."
--Bruce B Lawrence, Nancy & Jeffrey Marcus Humanities Professor and Professor of Islamic Studies, Duke University
"For those who find the question of what happens to humans after death central - as do all the traditionally understood major religions, including Islam--Mohammad Hassan Khalil's volume Islam and the Fate of Others offers a magisterial presentation and analysis of the multiple, nuanced answers of major Islamic thinkers down to the present. His is another important plank in the bridge of dialogue between Islam and Others."
---Leonard Swidler, Professor of Catholic Thought and Interreligious Dialogue, Temple University, and Founding Editor, Journal of Ecumenical Studies
"Professor Mohammad Hassan Khalil is a familiar name to those of us who work in Islamic Studies. This marvelous book will bring him the wider readership that he deserves in both religious studies and comparative theology. In answering a very simple question--what does Islam say about the fate of non-Muslims?--he gives us the full measure of his erudition while examining the thought of four key Muslim scholars. He does this with an elegance that does justice to the complexities required for a complete answer."
--Amir Hussain, Professor of Theological Studies and Editor of the Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"Khalil masterfully approaches a difficult topic...a superb scholarly production on all levels. Given his forthcoming edited volume and already published article in Religion Compass, moreover, he has created an important niche for himself as a rising scholar in Islamic studies. Khalil should be congratulated for his splendid achievement that is Islam and the Fate of Others. The text should be of interest to scholars of theology, comparative religion, Qur'anic studies, ethics, pluralism, philosophy, Islamic history, and Sufism."--American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences
