Overview

The 'Wahhabi' Myth by Haneef James Oliver clarifies many of the gross inaccuracies and outright lies that have been attributed to the belief of the Salafi Muslims often referred to as "Wahhabis". Although some reporters have been vigilant enough to rebut some of these widespread fables, most have fallen headfirst into what one discerning reporter called, "the neo-conservative line that the whole conspiracy against America can be traced back to Wahhabism and the government of Saudi Arabia."

Oliver outlines the principles of the Salafi creed in an easy to understand manner. Using many different sources, he carefully presents the arguments of the critics of Salafism and successfully addresses the misconceptions contained within these criticisms. Specifically, he addresses the commonly-held belief that Osama Bin Laden is a Salafi/'Wahhabi.' He compellingly dispels this myth and unveils the sect that has provoked Bin Laden to become the leader of a terrorist movement, something that the media has failed to do.

Accordingly, it is expected that the "Wahhabi Myth could have a profound effect upon people's understanding of current affairs. This is the book that renowned major media outlets have been anticipating since September 11 as the long awaited reply of the Salafi Muslims.

    The writer is completely partial to the US

    The books lacks the objectivity which every work should have . It seems that the writer knows nothing about what the real Islam , what Salafism and what Wahabism are . In short, they are three terms with one meaning, Salafism is to understand the religion according the Quran and Sunna and how the Salf(the Sahaba) and those who follow them precisely after the Shabah), Wahabism is the same,but this term was named to the reform movement the MOhammad bin Abd Alwahab led to get the people go back to the correct understanding according to the Quran and Sunna and the understaning of Slaf after those people had made things which are considered as 'Shirk' like asking dead people to give safety and long life and those thing that you are supposed to ask Allah for them, but the enemies of Islam didn't ilke that, so they started spreading rumors that alimam Abdalwahab is bad and he goes against the right Islam. Finally, I believe that bin Laden( Allah save and bless him ) is a real salafist and on the right way, what what is he doing is just a response to what the 'Kuffur' union led by the US is doing, and it's nothing comparing to what the US has done to Muslims in all over the world . These days, nobody talks on Bin laden unless he is ' munafiq' or ' kafer' or may be someone who didn't understand the real Islam, someone who wants to be a slave to the US not to Allah. And I really hope that you have the courage and the obejectivity to publish this note. thank you very much and sorry for my poor English which didn't help me so much.
