[E-book] Bilal the Abyssinian – One Light, Many Colors by Dr. Abdurrahman al-Sheha


Hypocrisy is living well in the West. How else does one explain the demonization of Islam, a culture of peace, piety and enlightenment by cynics in the Occident? While many western societies found an ape from tyranny through pitched warfare and violent revolution, they have been quick to decry the use of even vaguely similar remedies to liberate oppressed peoples throughout the world and have, in fact, supported the politics, policies, and methods of criminally repressive regimes to their own selfish ends. The tragic irony is that Muslims have suffered exponentially at the hands of westerners, whose marauding 12th-century ancestors found an ape from the Dark Ages only through gifts bestowed upon them by Muslim scholars, scientists, artisans, and theologians. The genius of Muslim Haythem, ibn Rushd to al-Ghazzali are precious drops of water in an ocean of Islamic scientists and philosophers whose ideas quite literally swept a stagnant, reactionary Europe into its much cherished Renaissance.

[PDF] Freewill, Qadar, and Kasb in the Epistle of Hasan al‐Basri to Abd al‐Malik


Hasan al-Basri said:

Allah has said, “I did not create jinn and humans except to worship Me. I seek no provision from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.” (Quran 51:56-57) Thus He commanded them to worship Him, for which (purpose) He had created them, and Allah is not one to create them for a purpose and then intervene between them and it (to prevent them from fulfilling it), because “He does not wrong His servants.” (Quran 16:118)

[E-book] The Muslim Conquest of Persia


Following the publication of ‘Khalid ibn Waleed – Sword of Allah,’ there has been a huge revival in reader’s interest for books dealing with early Islamic History. It was decided that we complete the task of publishing the [out of print] books by A.I.Akram on the first hundred years of Islam. They are as follows;

Hence, present before you is second in the series of books written by A.I.Akram – The Muslim Conquest of Persia. This version has been edited with the addition of footnotes, Anglicization of certain terms and the corrections of minor spelling and grammatical errors. This edition also includes the original maps [digitized] drawn by the author from its original print.

The author writes;

‘So here it is, my second book; The Muslim Conquest of Persia. It is my second assault upon the ignorance which surrounds this field of Muslim history. According to an old Chinese proverb, it is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness. This is my second candle, may it light the way for those who seek!” Lieutenant General A.I. Akram has had a distinguished career in military, diplomatic and literary fields. He served in Burma in WWII, fought against India in 1971, and thereafter served as Pakistan’s Military Deputy to the Central Treaty Organisation(CENTO). After retiring from military service in 1978, he became Pakistan’s Ambassador to Spain where he served for two and a half years. Upon completion of this assignment he founded the Institute of Regional Studies in Islamabad which is a research institute dealing with South Africa. The General’s career in historical research covers a vast period in Muslim military history extending from the early days of Islam to the conquest of Spain almost a hundred years later and the wars of Muslim Spain thereafter. He learnt Arabic and Spanish in order to conduct his research and also visited the countries where the battles were fought and discussed historical events with local scholars. –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

[E-book] Silent Moments: The Description of Before & After Death Aspects


The book Silent Moments deals with the science of death, which is the research work of brother Abdul Malik Al-Qasim, a renowned and a pious scholar of the Quran and the Sunnah as well as the Arabic Language. Nowadays, these worthy books are hardly available and due to their being in large volumes, people have no time to get benefit from them. About death and after death, there is a sound creed in Islam and it has been mentioned and discussed many times in the Quran and the Sunnah. In View of its importance, Darussalam has rendered (Silent Moments) into the English language with the prior permission from the author.

 

Abu Hazim said: “Trade of the Hereafter is not sought after, and whatever is left of it, is about to finish! As a result, no part of it, minor or major, will remain.” Whenever the light went out in the house of Hisham bin Abu Abdullah, he would turn around in his bed until his wife brought a light for him. So she asked him why he felt anxious when the light went off and he replied, “When the light goes off, I remember the darkness of the grave.”

 

This is why AI-Mu’tasim used to say when he was dying, “If I knew that my life would be this short, I would not have committed what I committed.”

 

Also, Caliph AI-Muntasir said at the time of death, when he was wished well, “All will happen except being well! Life has gone away and the Hereafter has come.”

 

Ibn Mas’ud ~ once said: “The believer will not attain comfort until he meets ALLAH”

 

Life is Just like a dream that passes as fast as clouds. It is a mere hour of time that soon fades away. It is a journey that has already started and will soon come to an abrupt end.
