Our books make Islam easy to understand. There is one sure way to knowing Islam -- know Allah and know Mohammed. This used to be very hard to do, but just like science made computers easy to use, scientific analysis has made Allah and Mohammed accessible and interesting.
Allah is found in the Koran which is famous for being impossible to read, but today anyone with curiosity can pick it up, read it and comprehend it.
To know Islam, you must know Mohammed. His life, called the Sira, and sayings, called Hadith, are the foundations of Islam. It is more important to know Mohammed than the Koran. Our books will show you one of history's interesting leaders.
Our books will give you ease of learning and a firm foundation of understanding.
Islam has three sacred texts-the Koran, the Sira (life of Mohammed), and the Hadith (traditions of Mohammed). These are the foundations of Islam. All of Islamic religious and political doctrine are found in them.
Until now these books were unavailable to the average reader. The Koran is confusing and only scholars knew that the Sira and the Hadith existed.
The Sira is an 800 page book that is very difficult reading. Mohammed and the Unbelievers makes the life of Mohammed easy to understand.
The Political Traditions of Mohammed contains all of the Traditions about the non-Muslims. This book is a fascinating read. You will learn details about Islam that you never knew existed.
At last, a simple Koran that you can read and understand.
An Abridged Koran is identical to A Simple Koran, except all of the repetition is removed. Practically speaking, this means that the book is half as long.
The Taste of Islam is a unique offering. Until now the doctrine of Islam has always been hidden behind deliberately complex writing. The Koran is a perfect example of cloaking a simple message behind a screen of created incoherency. Thus, the public image of Islamic doctrine is that it is so profound and subtle even superb scholars could not read and understood the texts.
Scientific analysis has revealed the hidden topics of Islam. What seemed complex has been made clear. Now anyone can understand the sacred texts that drive and support every action and word by Islam. Anyone can understand the doctrine of Allah and Mohammed as revealed in its source texts. What was difficult is now simple for anyone who wants it.
A Taste of Islam gives you the source text, not opinion. It is not about Islam, it is Islam.
A Taste of Islam book is a short read; the Islamic doctrine is distilled—about 70 pages long.
Now anybody can understand the Koran in a small amount of time.
This is a quick read about the man who became the first ruler of a united Arabia and laid the foundation for the empire of Islam. But, it is not just a biography; it is a sacred text of how a perfect Muslim should conduct their life.
This little book is the perfect introduction to Sharia law. It also makes the perfect lobbying tool to educate politicians, leaders and officials.
The most enjoyable way to learn about Islam is thorough the traditions of Mohammed (Hadith).
The Islamic doctrine of slavery is found in the Koran and the life-example of Mohammed. You must know the Islamic doctrine of slavery before you can understand slavery.
Islam devotes a great deal attention to how women should be treated. This doctrine is made simple to understand.
Islam has a detailed doctrine of the Jew and Christian. This books gives you all of the mental and emotional landscape that lies behind what a Muslim says.

Our schools and religious leaders have not taught us about Islam so it is up to us to educate ourselves. CSPI now offers two self-study courses that lead you through a systematic study of Islam’s fundamental texts, the Koran, the Sira and the Hadith. You will learn doctrine, not comments or opinions about Islam. These courses are fact-based.
This book is the first level of the Self-Study course on Political Islam.
This is the second level of the Self-Study Course on Political Islam.
This is the third level of the Self-Study Course on Political Islam.
The first book ever written about how to use the facts of Islam in persuasion and argument.
Islam and the Psychology of the Muslim is a jewel from the early 20th century, written before the disaster of modern, politically correct thought control. The author, Andre Sevier, was a scholar of Islamic doctrine and its political history.
My mission is to educate the world about the doctrine and history of Political Islam. I deal with facts, not opinions.
My experts are Allah and Mohammed. Everything I say and write can be verified.
Dr. Bill Warner
There are two distinct answers to this question. The popular message is that Islam is one of the great world religions, a peaceful religion, a foundation of world civilization. The alternative message is that Islam is a brutal, backward, woman abusing, violent, intellectually narrow ideology that is out to annihilate civilization.
Which side is right? How do we resolve this issue? Can it even be resolved? If we turn to the “experts” of any of the opinions, they will tell you that their view is correct. What then is the ultimate authority that will give us a firm foundation for reasoning and judgment about Islam? Is it possible to use critical thought or must we just accept the authority of experts?
Up until now, the answers have been unsatisfactory. We can’t understand Islamic doctrine without understanding its sacred foundations - the three texts that inform and direct virtually every thought and act in the Muslim world.
Through a new, simpler and more complete system, the Center for the Study of Political Islam offers these sacred texts to the general reader. You want answers. You want understanding. Here they are.
All of Islams political doctrine is found in three sacred texts, the Trilogy:
The Koran - the words
of the Islamic god Allah, as reported by Mohammed
The Sira - the life of Mohammed
The Hadith - the traditions of Mohammed, governing every aspect of daily life, great and small
By seeing through the eyes of Mohammed, your view of Islam will be transformed:
Media accounts of Islam will be seen in a new light
The history of Islam will make sense
The very words you use to discuss Islam will be new and more accurate
You will become your own expert, able to discuss political Islam with anyone
For the first time all of these books are easily understood
The reading level is that of a weekly news magazine. If there is a technical word, it is defined.
Each paragraph is referenced to the source text. You see exactly what Mohammed did and said, and if you desire corroboration or more information, you can easily look it up.
Islam can only be truly known by understanding all three texts, which for the general reader has not been previously possible.
Up to now, the knowledge of the Trilogy has been available only to a few scholars and Islamic imams, in a form virtually impossible for the general public to access. Scholars at CSPI have made these texts understandable for the first time.
Now you can learn about political Islam from the only source that counts -- Mohammed himself.
Bill Warner holds a PhD in physics and math, NC State University, 1968. He has been a university professor, businessman, and applied physicist.
He was a Member of the Technical Staff in solid-state physics at the Sarnoff Princeton Laboratories in the area of integrated circuit structures. During the energy crisis of the 80's he founded and ran a company that specialized in energy efficient homes. For eight years he was a professor at Tennessee State University in the Engineering School.
Dr. Warner has had a life-long interest in religion and its effects on history. He has studied the source texts of the major religions for decades. Even before the destruction of the World Trade Center he had predicted the war between Islam and America. The day after 9/11 he decided to make the source texts of Islam available for the average person.
Dr. Warner's training in scientific theory and mathematics shaped how he analyzed Islamic doctrine. The first step was realizing that the Islamic texts had been made deliberately difficult to read and comprehend. A program, the Trilogy Project (see below), was created to strip away the confusion in the texts. It became clear that Islam is not constructed on the same civilizational principles as the rest of the world. Simple statistical methods revealed that dualism and submission were the foundational principles of Islamic doctrine.
Statistical methods applied to the Islamic texts showed that:
Dr. Warner coined the term, Foundational School of Islamic studies, which holds that Islam is found in the Trilogy of Koran, Sira and Hadith. All evaluation of Islamic history and current activity is caused by the doctrine found in this Trilogy. Therefore, it is impossible to understand any Muslim or Islamic action without knowing the doctrine that is its cause.
Dr. Warner postulates that there are three independent views of Islam that are not reconcilable. The three views are believer-centric, dhimmi-centric and Kafir-centric. The believer-centric view is the view of a Muslim. Dhimmi-centric is based upon the apologetic view of non-Muslims. Kafir-centric is the view of the non-Muslim. A comprehensive knowledge of Islam must include all three. These views cannot be resolved, but each must stand-alone.
Dr. Warner founded the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) and is its director. He has produced a dozen books, including a Koran, a biography of Mohammed and a summary of the political traditions of Mohammed. He also developed the first self-study course on Political Islam. He has given talks nationally and internationally about Islamic political doctrine. He writes articles and produces news Bulletins that record the suffering of the victims caused by Political Islam.
The Trilogy Project was developed to make Islam's three sacred texts, Koran, Sira and Hadith understandable. It was based upon scientific principles and objective methods, so that any independent person could achieve the same results if they used the same methods.
All Islamic doctrine is based on words of Allah and the Sunna (words and actions) of Mohammed. Allah is found in the Koran and Mohammed is found in the Sira (biography) and the Hadith (traditions). All of Islam is based on Koran, Sira, and Hadith. If it is in the Trilogy, it is Islam. If it is not in the Trilogy, then it is not Islam. To know Islam, know the Trilogy.
The problem in knowing the Trilogy is that the Koran, Sira and Hadith were designed to be difficult to understand. There is only one way for them to be understood-they must be viewed as a systemic whole, not three separate books.
The books had to be fact-based and self-authenticating. In a sense, each book had to be a map to the original text. Nearly every paragraph in the CSPI book series has a reference number that allows the reader to go to the source text and verify what is written. If you don't believe it or want more details, you can go the reference number and read the original.
Here is an example from Mohammed and the Unbelievers, the Sira:
I552 The assassins' wounded friend lagged behind, so they carried him back with them. When they got back to Mohammed, he was praying. They told him they had killed the enemy of Allah and their attack had terrorized all the Jews. There was no Jew in Medina who was not afraid.
Here is the source text: Ishaq margin note 552:
552 Our friend al-Harith had lagged behind, weakened by loss of blood, so we waited for him for some time until he came up, following our tracks. We carried him and brought him to the apostle [Mohammed] at the end of the night. We saluted him as he stood praying, and he came out to us, and we told him that we had killed God's enemy. He spat upon our comrade's wounds, and both he and we returned to our families. Our attack upon God's enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.
The Hadith, collected by Bukhari, has over 6800 traditions. The text is confusing since there is so much repetition. The same tradition may be repeated a dozen times. Only about a quarter of the traditions relate to politics, the rest are purely religious. The first step is to collect all the traditions that deal with Kafirs. The Kafir material is political, since it deals with those outside of Islam. Then all of those that are similar, or nearly identical, are summarized into a single tradition. This method makes all of the political traditions easily understood. The remaining traditions apply only to Muslims and are of little interest to Kafirs.
Collecting those traditions that apply to Kafirs and summarizing the repeated ones clarifies the text and makes Political Islam simple to understand. This work resulted in The Political Traditions of Mohammed.
The Koran is made readable by reproducing the historical Koran of Mohammed's day. This is accomplished by arranging the Koran in the original order (the one in the bookstore is arranged in order of chapter length). Then the similar sections are combined (for instance, the story of Moses is told 39 times). The final step is to take Mohammed's life from the Sira and integrate it into the Koran verses to give the verses context. These steps reproduce the historical Koran. The resulting document is now easily read, A Simple Koran.
Anyone can take these same steps and produce similar versions of the original Trilogy. A team of people including a political scientist, a classics scholar, English literature majors and a physicist did the actual writing of both the Simple Koran and the Political Traditions. Each was chosen for their ability to read complex texts and write clearly. We used Middle East experts or Arabic scholars for resolving contradictions and historical background.
People assume that you must understand Arabic or have a university degree in Islam to understand Islam's texts. However, look at these scholars' history. After 1400 years they have produced scholarly papers for presentations at scholarly meetings, but they have not made the material available to the common person.
The work stands on its own. The only person that matters in discussing Islam is not the "expert" but Mohammed. Every paragraph of our books is referenced to what Mohammed did and said (his Sunna). Each paragraph can be verified by the use of the reference numbers. Our books are fact-based knowledge, not opinion. Mohammed is our expert. We quote him in every paragraph.
One of the great questions of the 21st century is: What is the true nature of Islam? The popular message is that Islam is one of the great world religions, a peaceful religion, a foundation of world civilization, its Golden Age was the high point of history, and it preserved Western thought while we were in the Dark Ages.
The alternative message is that Islam is a brutal, backward, woman abusing, violent, intellectually narrow ideology that is out to annihilate civilization.
Which side is right? How do we resolve this issue?
Can it even be resolved?
