However, viewers will remember him meeting his grisly death when he was murdered with an ice pick. His stint lasted from season three to six before he met the love of his life Martha Lloyd Sally Bretton and moved back to London. He embarked on a journey to the Caribbean in search of a much-needed adventure and purpose following the death of his beloved wife.
In season nine, viewers tuned in to see Jack meet Anna Nina Wadia with who he developed a special connection with. Together they decided they wanted to go and travel the world, thus making way for his departure from the police station, Journey To Paradise (Mind One Remix).
She was a queen of the old Levant, Of a country, lost in shame, Each page, blood-drenched of its history Was burnt, to bury its name, The King had gone on the last Crusade With his knights to the Holy Land, But locked her into a chastity belt Forged by a blacksmith's hand. Come closer, this I must hear, If the Oracle tells my future place, Why, you have nothing to fear! She spent that night with the eunuch slaves, She crawled around on her knees, She fed an insatiable appetite Doing whatever she pleased, At dawn she called for the headsman Who was given his gory task, And watched as her night companions there Fell one and all to the axe.
The knight came thundering through the trees One day, on his coal black horse, The queen stood up where the parapet eaves Hung over the watercourse, She ordered the drawbridge down at once And had the portcullis raised, Then watched him galloping into the fort And through the walls of the maze. Her body dropped like a stone, and bled, Her head flew over the wall, She saw his face as she stared ahead The Jester, watching her fall, Her head fell down through the cypress trees And she thought that the breeze was nice!
Those final seconds would lead her mind To the Garden of Paradise. David Lewis Paget I too flirted with Tablighi Jamaat and Sufi cults. And like Sardar I found to my dismay that there was no place in com Ziauddin Sardar is an intellectual who for some reason is neglected by the media. And like Sardar I found to my dismay that there was no place in communal Islam for the questioning believer. Like Sardar I could never agree to blind obedience or unquestioning allegiance to charismatic Sufi sheikhs.
Sardar like Khalid Abou El Fadl discovered that Shariah is not Islamic for the most part and that the opinions of 8th century jurists should never be equated with divine injunctions.
He seemed to shy away from discussing hadith which I found surprising because I was waiting for him to discover that Sahih Bukhari has been corrupted. But, strangely he never seemed to dive any deeper than a basic discussion of hadith chains of transmission.
This book is a must read for all Muslims living in the UK, especially these days when Muslims galore flock to study circles and watch YouTube videos for their edification.
You may find Sardar's writing a little bombastic, but there can be no doubt that his view on why Islam is not working as it should is very insightful. Sardar's views merit respect because they are diverse, deeply considered and above all humane.
All the things Shariah law should be but isn't. May 20, Hamdanil rated it it was amazing Shelves: biographyreligion. Memoir and intellectual adventures of a Muslim thinker in the West. It's well-written, the author is intelligent, well-read, and funny. Enjoyable read, especially the author's insights and funny jabs, even though it's quite gloomy in some parts. It doesn't have quite the happy ending, but leaves me interested to read more of him.

This book was recommended to me about 5 years ago, I bought it but never got around to reading it. That was a mistake. I reviewed a book on chaos theory earlier in the year and discovered that its author was the same. Sardar is a scientist and deep intellectual.
Moreover, he is a learner and a seeker, and so I felt an instant connection to him. Sardar has traveled the world and seen all sides of the umma, and desperately wishes to save it from itself. The book chronicles years in England spent le This book was recommended to me about 5 years ago, I bought it but never got around to reading it.
The book chronicles years in England spent learning from Muslim scholars, years spent in Saudi Arabia bemoaning the Kingdom's destruction of history and ruining the hajj by clogging it with modern pollution, and years spent watching the Muslim world turn more and more insular and backward. Sardar's circle of intellectual scholars write articles and advise governments to seemingly no avail.
He was at a meeting in Pakistan when Osama bin Laden and others in the mujahideen could not find a way to reconcile their differences, and the future was clear. I enjoyed Sardar's observations in his travels to places like Turkey, Syria, and Iran. I learned about how much hope the umma placed in the Iranian revolution, and how bad it was when those hopes were dashed by the violent tyranny that emerged.
All along the way, Sardar explains ancient Muslim history and philosophy, illustrating the different schools of thought and what they mean for today. I learned a great deal about Islam that I never knew before. Sardar's problems with Muslim clerics today are very similar to the ones I have with evangelical pastors. If you're an American who thinks he knows a decent amount about Islam, or has read several books on the subject, think again and afresh and read this book.
Sardar believes in a pluralist Islam. It's not clear to me why he rejects Christianity. It seems to me that what he's looking for is clearly found in Jesus and the teachings of the Bible. I'd love to have a conversation with him. This book was better than I could have imagined, and much different. Wish I had read it 5 years ago. Sep 14, Sarah Lameche rated it really liked it Shelves: favourites. I loved this book. Perhaps it deserves five stars but as I read it a long time ago four will suffice.
I was hoping that his tongue was firmly in his cheek when he kept telling us what an intellectual Muslim he is. Though I fear he meant every repeated sentence. This is my only gripe with this book, that I can remember anyway. He certainly seems to think a lot of himself. Not all of course but enough for me to really enjoy this book. Funnily I loved this book. Funnily enough the one bit that really sticks in my memory is when his friend becomes Muslim and she doesn't change her name.
I remember the amount of people who asked still do what my Muslim name is when they realise I'm a revert. Yet islamically there is no need to change your name unless it means something bad. Not to mention the hurt it must cause the parents when you do so. I suppose it irks me some Muslims know their religion so little that they think this is such a must. Especially when there is so many more important things they could be discussing with a Muslim.
Ah well I digress. I definitely recommend this book to Muslims and non Muslims. I am looking forward to reading this book again. When I do so I will update my review.
In case it's not as good as I remember. Jan 24, Christina rated it liked it. I took a break from this to read a quick book club book, and then extended that break for a few other books I'm not sure whether the second half was really more interesting and easier to grasp, or whether it just seemed that way because I had a better pace and was able to stay with it mentally.
Anyway, the travelogue and memoir-y sections were great. Really interesting, clever, descriptively-written. I learned I took a break from this to read a quick book club book, and then extended that break for a few other books I learned a lot about the modern history of the ummah worldwide society of Islam.
But the sections about the history of Islamic thought were SO terribly boring. I got lost multiple times especially in the first half trying to stay interested enough to care about who was who in which century and how they all related to what was going on in the "now" of the book.
Sardar's pompous voice got on my nerves sometimes, too. And did he really say that reading The Satanic Verses felt like what it must feel like to be raped?? Jul 11, Sarah Salleh rated it it was amazing. I am in awe of this book. In an era where instant nonfiction books with poor content, threadbare content with holes in it, are churned out in the form of fancy, time-consuming hardbacks, I am incredibly humbled by the majesty contained within its pages.
There might have been a time when I felt that I was perfectly happy for Sardar to represent Islam for me, any day, but those times are gone. The implications of some of the statements he makes in this bok—particularly about I am in awe of this book. The implications of some of the statements he makes in this bok—particularly about the irrelevance of Shariah law—do not sit well with me.
But this is not the place to go into that problem and even if it was, I barely have a glimmer of the intellectual prowess required to take him on. This is the place to say that this book needs to be known about, talked about, much more than it seems to be. Jan 14, Busrini Agustina Prihatini rated it really liked it.

I thank Sardar for his chapter on The Satanic Verses. Part of the message of his book lies in the fact that, as a Westerner, I never found a satisfactory explanation of why the Muslim community was so offended by the book. Nov 26, El rated it really liked it Shelves: religion-read. What a wild ride! These memoirs span decades and take the reader all over the world and into the company of all kinds of Muslims. Often Sardar is a bemused narrator he notes how he could tell a man's religious leanings from his beard style at other times he dips his toe in What a wild ride!
Often Sardar is a bemused narrator he notes how he could tell a man's religious leanings from his beard style at other times he dips his toe in further but largely remains unconvinced by the various, often radically different ways of being Muslim or disillusioned by them. At any rate, for those wondering what Muslims are up to the book provides an enjoyable entree to various Muslims and their visions of Islam.
Sardars other books are also worth reading. Mar 31, Serene rated it liked it Shelves: religion. This book is part Journey To Paradise (Mind One Remix), part analysis of various approaches on the part of contemporary Muslims to build a "perfect" society.
What I appreciated most was Sardar's honesty in describing his wandering and often futile efforts to find the solution to Muslim ills. I don't think he is a great writer, and he does a better job of describing the events he was involved in than standing back and understanding himself within those events. Added context and introspection would have made this a better book This book is part memoir, part analysis of various approaches on the part of contemporary Muslims to build a "perfect" society.
Added context and introspection would have made this a better book. I think if I weren't already familiar with Muslim angst I would have been lost. I also felt Sardar was holding himself back from the reader, though perhaps not consciously. Nevertheless, I don't know any other writer who writes about their faith journey fro a social point of view, and that alone makes it worth reading.

It begins when he is a university student and continues through to when the book was first published. As he explores he also explains the different belief paths, where they came from, who espouses them now, and why he accepts or rejects them.

I learned a lot about Islam, about beliefs and histories, and about what Sardar sees as issues for today's Muslims. An eye-opening read. Despite his childish interpretations; Sardar used his beautiful language and immense knowledge to pass what is called "true lies". He did it in the smartest way, however; if you have the slightest idea about the history he is narrating, you will easily discover where exactly is he lying, and how he did so to justify his narrative and worldview.
Should be treated as a novel rather than an autobiography! Sep 27, Ahmad Abugosh rated it really liked it.
