I'm reading the Book of Mormon at the moment. I wouldn't recommend it at all, but I've also read the Quran, and the Old and New Testaments, and strongly disliked them. So if you enjoyed those books then there's no reason why you shouldn't enjoy the Book of Mormon too.

The only "holy books" I've actually enjoyed were the Tao Te Ching and Chang Tzu...if you consider them "holy books" that is.

if you read the holy quran then you would know that it reveals the quran, the bible as well as the torah.

the book of mormon is a load of shit,

"3 Nephi 19:30 And when Jesus had spoken these words he came again unto his disciples; and behold they did pray steadfastly, without ceasing, unto him; and he did smile upon them again; and behold they were *white*, even as Jesus."

"3 Nephi 2:15 And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became *white* like unto the Nephites;"


it was written by a white man named joesph smith who found some "plates" in upstate new york writting in ancient egyptian, yeah ok. mormonism is a chunk of horse shit.

The Darqawi Way (http://www.bahrpress.com/catalogue/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_5_27&products_id=33&zenid=5617fb30a87b7a1c7e10104f3cda67e7) by Shaykh Mawlay al-Arabi ad-Darqawi.

The book is a compilation of letters from the Sufi Master Shaykh ad-Darqawi to his fuqura', or people of his tariqa (Sufi Order).

Peace.

Here is an example of one of the letters in his book:

Faqir*, nothing is more beneficial to you than true sincerity with your Lord in what he has commanded you to do and in what He has forbidden you. By Allah, if you were like that with Him, you would see wonders since Allah Almighty says, "If they had been true to Allah, it would have been better for them." By Allah, if we were true with Him, our enemy would be true with us. By Allah, if we were to restrain our abuse of the servants of Allah, our Lord would defend us against every harm and abuse. Then we would only only experience good from everything, and we would not see any evil in anything. The one who used to harm us would not harm us, and the one who used to cut us off would not cut us off. We will only have this after the death, obliteration, disappearance, departure and extinction of our nafs**, and after our annihilation to our annihilation.

Peace



- Shaykh ad-Darqawi (1760-1823)

---

* a Faqir is a Sufi, it comes from the word Faqr with means poverty. The idea is that the faqir is poor and has nothing, and Allah is Rich and is the faqir's only true need.

** the Nafs is the self.

Do you have any religious books or books on any religion that you recommend? Anything that you read and found good/interesting/inspiring/informative? Anything counts here, just dont mention The Quran or The Bible because Im sure all of us have heard of those already However, if you have a favorite translation or one with great explanations, do share...

P.S. Even books critical of religion are welcome.

Another good book worth reading is "Original Blessing" by Matthew Fox (no, not the actor. the former Catholic now Episcopal reverend and mystic).

http://www.amazon.com/Original-Blessing-Spirituality-Presented-Twenty-Six/dp/1585420670/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

I'm currently reading this and trust me, it's deep.
