Overview

SHORTLY AFTER the end of the revelation of the Qur'an and the death of the Prophet Mohammed, Muslims splintered into various sects, with each group claiming that they were the only ones who retained the true message of Islam. The unfortunate truth is that none of them had followed the message and teachings of the Qur'an, abandoning it for the message and opinions of their scholars and leaders. THE NATURAL REPUBLIC is a long overdue attempt to return to the pure teachings of the Qur'an and abandon all sectarianism. However, please note that this book is not for the fainthearted reader as the contents of its pages will be very disturbing to those Muslims who refuse to accept the Oneness of God and insist on setting partners up with Him.
