Peshawar Nights
Translated by Hamid Quinlan and Charles Ali Campbell

Recently the non-Muslim world has forcibly learned that Islam is divided into two sects, Shi’a and Sunni, but there is so little material in languages other than Arabic and Persian on the Shi’a side of the issue that real understanding is all but impossible. This is the consequence of the historical accident that Western contact with Islam was almost entirely with Sunni communities. The present work corrects this imbalance in the most extraordinary way, for the case of Shi’ite Islam is argued and supported virtually entirely from Orthodox Sunni sources.
