Even Angels Ask!
Even Angels Ask: A Journey to Islam in America, by Jeffery Lang. Beltsville, Maryland, USA: Amana Publications, 1997.
The author, an American associate professor of mathematics, who converted to Islam in the early 1980’s relives his past. of becoming a Muslim in this very well written book. It is easy to read and interesting at the same time. The reader is sure to be impressed by the sheer honesty, openness, and reasoning which the author offers for accepting
Islam and advocating others to do the same, throughout the book. He challenges the traditional Muslim practice of accepting Islam passively and thus named the [email protected], “Even Angels Ask” based on the Qur’anic verse (2:30) where God said to the angels that He is ready to place His vicegerent on earth and the angels asks, “Will you place therein one who will spread corruption and shed blood?”
Unlike Jeffery Lang’s 1994 book, Struggling to Surrender, which covered issues of concern to Muslim converts, the present book is broader in scope and addresses author’s general concerns relating to the Muslims and Islam in North America. This is a treatise of an “emotional, psychological and spiritual” experience, which Jeffery Lang says, was primarily written for his children in the hope that “his struggle may help them in their search for meaning.” It is also meant for Muslim readers-for them to understand views from one who was once an “outsider.” The book is highly critical of Muslims in North America.
