Musings in a Muslim Library
Most Americans have never been to a Muslim Library, so as a public service, I have sent Marga, my Filipina servant, to a typical Muslim Library and asked her to write down the titles and some descriptive text of the most popular Islamic books.
Although Marga is very obedient, she previously worked for a Saudi and so she would not do exactly as I requested unless I whipped her like a dog. I tried to explain to her that since I was not a Muslim there was no need for her to wait to be beaten before complying with any of my requests.
But old habits die hard, so I had to ask my neighbor Mujib from Pakistan to give her a few lashes so I could get this post done. I asked him to punish her less and less severely over time to wean her off the whip.
But I digress.
After a few good lashes Marga was able to report back with this survey of the most popular books in Islam:
