Editorial Reviews

The recent decade has seen the faith of Islam, with its criticisms and celebrations, pushed to the front of public discussion. The remarkable program, Live at the 92nd Street Y, has brought in two incredible minds to discuss some of the major issues that concern Islam and its place in contemporary society. Best-selling author Irshad Manji, along with politician and author Ayaan Hirsi Ali, conduct an engaging and thought-provoking discussion about what is needed to help Islam keep up with modern times.

Hope for Islam

Very well informed. Both ladies start with similar backrounds take different paths and end up in similar positions. Pleasant and exciting speakers. Also humorous. Shows how politics and agendas have tainted a religion. HIGHLY RECCOMEND!

A Dialogue

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Everyone should be a part of this conversation.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Irshad Manji and Ayaan Hirsi Ali at the 92nd Street Y on The Trouble with Islam?

Learning that there is growing momentum for an Islamic reform, a modernisation, an incorporation of modern human rights and values, including woman's rights, into Islam. Small, but growing.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

There is no book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It's not a book.

Any additional comments?

Shalom.

Two amazingly courageous women!!

Listen and be inspired.
I haven't heard of Irshad Manji before and I'm glad to have not been introduced now.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an inspiration and one of the people whose disent may bring about a reformation for Islam. I hope...
