New book "Kingdom of Islam" by Ahmed El Ghawaby is released, a historical deep dive into the origins of Islam with profound findings and a new vision of traditional concepts

“Kingdom of Islam: The Origins of Islam” by Ahmed El Ghawaby has been released worldwide. This 262-page work, which has achieved Amazon Bestseller status as the #1 New Release and #1 Bestseller in the “Islamic History” and “Islamic Theology” categories, provides a comprehensive, multilayered investigation into the origins of the Islamic faith, resulting in shocking revelations about the messages of the Qur’an that have been misinterpreted and misused. Through linguistic analysis, examination of scripture, and a deep understanding of history, Ghawaby shows the true message of Islam in a new light.

Differentiating key terminology, exploring ambiguities in conventional interpretation, and drilling into the specific misinterpretations that have led to violence, terrorism, and oppression, the author’s diligent theological research presents essential context for both followers of Muhammad and society at large. He reframes long-held ideas about jihad, makes key distinctions between Islam and Iman, and shows the faith, principles, and laws of the Kingdom of God.

With a background in engineering and Islamic academic studies, as well as a keen eye for logical analysis, Ghawaby brings a deftness for tackling complex subjects to each page of the book. Wonderfully organized, thoroughly explained, and meticulously detailed, the book brings the tenets of Islam into full view, showing how they align with the values of freedom and justice in both ancient and modern times. 

Informative for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, this powerful work is a wholly unique interpretation of traditional concepts and stands to fundamentally alter the teachings of Islam.

From the back cover:

“Kingdom of Islam is a solid work that lays out the rich, complex history not only of Islam but the development of its core theology. It’s not just for students of religion and history, though. Get your copy, read it, and you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of Islam and those who practice it.” – J.J. Hebert, USA Today bestselling author 

For more than fourteen centuries, Islam has been seen primarily as a religion. This book provides a new framework for understanding Islam. Employing the technique used by the earliest Muslim exegetes, focusing on correctly interpreting key theological terminology in the Qur’an, brings a new theory of Muhammad’s message and his mission. Through meticulous scholarship, it traces the earliest history of Islam and highlights the importance of Iman, the belief in God, and its relationship to the Din, the kingdom of God.

A careful examination of terms like ‘Muslim,’ ‘Mu’min,’ ‘Millah,’ ‘dhimmi,’ kafir, and ‘People of the Book’ from the Qur’an itself and the hadiths sheds fresh light on how they were interpreted in their historical context, as well as what that means for Islam today. We see Muhammad’s tireless efforts to consolidate the Kingdom of God, ensure its stability, and make it a model for all nations to follow. There is also a thoughtful investigation of how ‘jihad’ changed from spreading the lofty principles of the kingdom of Islam, including justice and freedom of religion, to other nations to spreading the religion of the Prophet Muhammad by oppression and violence. 

Islam is the second-largest religion in the world, with almost two billion adherents, so it’s crucial to understand its tenets. The Kingdom of Islam: The Origins of Islam will help Muslims appreciate the richness of their faith and traditions as well as engaging and informing non-Muslims.
