Jazakallah. Session 6 is such a terrible history. I went through immense pain listening all the way through. I am glad it is over with 6-14. A painful remainder how the Arab world have degenerated into a useless and excessively wasteful Ummah. While they are busy competing against each other for the tallest building on earth, Isreal, in connivance with the West to keep on grabbing Palestinian land. Gaza is our collective shame. The Muslim Ummah will continue to slide down into trenches of shame and anguish till Gaza and the rest of the Arab/Muslim nations are liberated from the shackles of Isreal/US alliance.

Masha Allah. I am highly impressed with these two episodes on Sheik Usman Bn Fodio. I am from Kano, a state in Northern Nigeria and have to confess my ignorance of the jihad which paved the way for my ancestors to become Muslims. The Sheik has done a great job. May Allah reward him with Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen.

I heard most of the episodes related to the first years of Islam and they benefited me very much in knowing the history of Islam. However, while I was hearing the episode in which the subject of the Lebanese civil war was mentioned ,I found that it has several historical inaccuracies especially when it comes to the parties involved in the war and the responsibilities of each party in this war. The lebanese war is a very complicated subject where brothers stepped each other in the back and where allies became enemies overnight and its roots can be tracked back to the 60s knowing that the first massacre was done in Damour and that massacre for a reason or another is always ignored. Moreover the massacre of Sabra and Shatila was done by several parties who some of them pretended to be allies with the PLO (please google it and you will have the right answer).

It's a really good podcast that does a great job explaining Islamic history and putting the events into context.

I love how it's all about war. the religion of peace keeps slaves and only peaceful when you submit to their rule. once conquered you're forced to submit. although I do not agree with the religion this was a good podcast. good to learn.

Really wanted to like this podcast but the caster gets way too bogged down in detail - to the point of singing verses allegedly performed by historical figures, in Arabic. It sounds very nice and all but you're not learning anything. Also season 1 isn't available which seems really odd. I'm finding it difficult to achieve the purpose of this podcast and really gain a comprehension of Islamic history
