In his historical study, History As I See It and Others, Hafiz Sheriff examines various major historical events and shares his perspective on them. He also includes his viewpoints on political, family, and religious matters. The work covers Jewish history before and after the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. It explores the impact of the Crusades during the medieval period and the Iraq War which began in 2003. It also examines WWII’s major events and the role of key figures during the war including that of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Sheriff includes his outlook on the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations. He advocates for philanthropy and empathy. The work also shares various life lessons and dedicates one of its sections to Abraham Lincoln and his achievements.
I found many historical details covered in the work fascinating, including the events surrounding WWII. I liked the life lessons included in the study about showing compassion, enhancing family and marital relationships, working hard, and pursuing personal success. They are practical and can be applied to everyday life. Sheriff’s views on education as a weapon for fighting poverty and the importance of democracy in society are intriguing. I also found the biographical parts of the work to be interesting and add a personal touch to the book. History As I See It and Others by Hafiz Sheriff is a captivating work that examines both historical and more current events. It contains interesting information about different historical figures and their impact on politics and history. Recommended to fans of history books.
