Review of Muslims in Western Politics:
I am just as passionate about my teaching as I am
about research and intellectual innovation, and I enjoy motivating my
students to think, communicate and perform to the best of their
abilities. I was a Teaching Assistant/Fellow at UCLA, a lecturer at
Stanford University, and currently teach undergraduate and graduate
courses at Indiana University.

Some student comments from evaluation forms:
Discussions were great and really forced me to think in absolutely
logical terms with no "easy way out." The subject matter is
fascinating and Prof. Sinno really makes it come alive even more (IU,
Y396, Spring `04).
This was probably the most important and relevant class I have ever
taken. I learned a lot and I appreciate Prof. Sinno's knowledge and
insight (IU, Y200, Fall `03).
I really enjoyed coming to section and looked forward to it each
week. We always had interesting discussions and with Abdul, there
was a good reason to come. I loved Abdul!!!! (UCLA)
Abdul is the Bomb! I rank this discussion on the top 2 best
discussions of all time. Every day there was lively interaction and
theoretical debate. It got me excited to read the course material
so I could present my thoughts in class. Abdul was energetic and
very interested in teaching. I would recommend him and his class to
Abdul’s energy made it easy to learn.
Abdul was always really organized, and really enthusiastic! He
always was ready for class with a huge smile. I loved our
discussions. This class convinced me to be a poli sci major!
Abdul’s energy and actual caring about what we were learning is
something rarely found at UCLA and it is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the information, for encouraging us to expand our minds
and open up to new ideas, to think about new things and be creative.
Abdul was excellent—He had high expectations and provided excellent
supplementary material. In fact at many times his section was more
informative and stimulating than lecture. A+.
Abdul is a great teacher who explains everything well.
Thank you Abdul. I had a great time and learned a lot. I am
thinking about changing my major to poli sci.
Abdul was one of the main factors
in my interest in political science. I was very impressed with his
knowledge of international relations.
