[E-book] Human Rights in Islam— Jamaal Zarabozo


About The Book

Many scholars are quick to point out that human rights has become a, if not the, dominant theme of the world today. For example, Ann Kent writes in Between Freedom and Subsistence: China and Human Rights, “The problem of human rights lies at the heart of modern political discourse,”Some argue that even those countries which are not completely enamored by the human rights concepts go out of their way to demonstrate that their actions do not violate human rights. Indeed, who could possibly be against a concept entitled human rights.”?

With respect to Islam in particular, Khalid Abou El Fadhl wrote; “Of all the moral challenges confronting Islam in the modern age, the problem of human rights is the most formidable.”Undoubtedly, Muslim countries, organizations, scholars and individuals feel the necessity of explaining exactly where they stand on the question of human rights. Actually, the situation has gone even beyond that to one of apparent acceptance of the concept as a whole. When many Muslims speak about political issues, such as the Middle East conflict, they speak about it in terms of human rights. In fact, many times in intra-Muslim political debates centering about rights, it is the human rights paradigm that often resonates with the audience regardless of who that audience may be.

However, in this authors view, a number of important questions have gone relatively unanswered. These questions include: Is the human rights doctrine deserving of the amount of respect and admiration that it has received? What, in detail, should be a Muslim’s attitude toward the concept of human rights and the contemporary human rights paradigm in particular? Just as importantly, what is the human rights doctrine’s attitude toward Islam? For example, does a Muslim truly have the right to practice his religion within the framework of contemporary human rights thought?

[E-book] Appeasing Thoughts— Sh. Salih al-Munajjid


Good morals are one of the attributes of the prophets (peace be upon them all) and the righteous people. With morals, a person gains high rank and status. Good manners foster mutual love and harmony and bad manners produce hatred and envy. The Prophet (peace be upon him) urged us to have good manners and to hold onto them, combining them with piety.

Soothing broken souls (Nafs) and appeasing the thoughts of people in tribulation is one of the greatest causes of intimacy and love among Muslims.

It is a great Islamic etiquette and is only acquired by noble-minded people. It is also a great form of worship. In fact, some scholars

[PDF] Explanation of the Nullifiers of Islam


Introduction by Abdulaziz Addwesh

All praises and thanks are due to Allah, who has guided us to Islam, and we could not have found guidance to the Right Path were it not that Allah has guided us. And Peace and Blessings be upon the Last among the Messengers and Prophets who has said:
“I have left you on the White (Clear Path), wherein the night is like the day. None will mislead its way (the clear Path) after me except he who is losing”. The greatest favor Allah has bestowed on us is the religion of Islam, so the Muslim must praise Allah (G) for it and learn how to guard it. Also, the Muslim must follow in the footsteps of the Companions of the Prophet and learn the actions that may lead him to lose his faith.

Hudhaifa Bin Al-Yaman narrated:
“The people used to ask Allah’s Messenger about good, but I used to ask him about evil fearing that it might overtake me”.

My brothers in Islam, here I present to you a brief explanation of Nawaaqid al-Islam (Nullifiers of Islam) written by Imam Muhammad Bin Abdul-Wahhab. It has been collected from the words of great scholars in particular, Shaykh Abdullah As-Sa’ad and Shaykh Suliman Al-Olowan, so that you could learn them and avoid falling into kufr (Infidelity) after Allah has saved you from it.

[E-book] Early Days Stories of the Beginning of Creation From Al-Bidayah Wan -Nihayah By Hafiz Ibn Kathir


Darussalam is proud to present the abridged English translation of the classic work, Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah. This book is the first part from this enormous work. It starts by describing the beginning of creation — from the Throne and the Kursi, the Universe and all that is in it, such as the angels, the Jinn and humans. This book continues to early Prophet Adam (Aadam) upto Prophet Yunus/Younus (A). Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah (The Beginning and The End) by the renowned scholar Abu Al-Fida, ‘Imad ad-Deen Isma’eel bin ‘Umar bin Katheer (Imam Ibn Kathir), is considered one of the most authoritative sources on Islamic history. A unique feature of the book is that it not only deals with past events, but also talks about future events mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) until the Day of Judgment.

[E-book] The Concise Manual of Marriage — al-Uthaymeen


A short yet concise manual on the legal rulings of marriage authored by one of the beacons of light in his time, Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, with comments from some of the Scholars of Islaam, past and present.

The Definition of Marriage: After providing the linguistic meaning of marriage, Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen stated that the technical, religious meaning and purpose of marriage is: “The conclusion of a contract of marriage between a man and a women, with each of the two desiring to enjoy and take pleasure in one another, to establish a righteous family, and to create a safe and sound society.

From the Wisdom of Marriage:

1) Preservation and protection of both mates. The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “O party of young men! Whoever among you has the ability to get married, then let him marry for surely it will be a means of lowering the gaze and protecting the private parts.”
2) Protection of the society from evil and the disintegration of [good] character, for without marriage, vices or despicable acts would spread amongst men and women.
3) The fulfillment of pleasure of one mate with the other, concerning what is mandated for him of rights and sexual intercourse. Since the man is responsible for the woman, he takes care of the maintenance of food, drink, housing and clothing with what is beneficial. The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Upon you is their provisions and clothing from what is beneficial.” And the woman is also responsible for establishing for the man, that which is required of her in the home of supervision and correction. The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The woman is a shepherd in her home and she will be questioned concerning her flock.”
4) Perfection of relations between families and tribes. For how many times do we see two distant families that do not know each other?”

The new edition includes a second appendix containing advice for the newlyweds.

[E-book] Strategies of Prophet Muhammad— Omar Khayyam Sheikh


Muhammad’s (Peace Be Upon Him) life is a rewarding subject for any sophisticated, intelligent and curious mind because of the impact he has had on world history. Not only did he change the world-view of a society, he practically moulded a nation out of a disparate group of warring tribes such that today, after 1400 years, more than 1.6 billion Muslims now live all over the world and try to follow in his foot-steps in their daily routines. Many demographers calculate that Islam will become’s the world’s largest religion by 2050. This amazing growth trajectory owes a great deal to the strategies pursued by him.

[E-book] Ibn Taymiyyah Expounds on Islam— Selected Writings of Ibn Taymiyyah on Islamic Faith, Life and Society


For various reasons the West has not been able to appreciate Ibn Taymiyyah’s place in Islam. His criticism of Ash’ari Kalam, Greek logic and philosophy, monistic Sufism, Shi’i doctrines, and Christian faith have proved great obstacles to appreciating his contribution. His way of writing has also been to an extent responsible. Most of his writings are short or long responsa (fatawa) to particular questions, often recurring, put to him by different men at different times, rather than planned, systematic works on particular subjects. This makes the appreciation of his contribution somewhat difficult. Henri Laoust in France was the first to take serious notice of him. Since the publication of his Essay on the Social and Political Doctrines of Ibn Taymiyyah (1939), a few articles and books have appeared on Ibn Taymiyyah’s thought, but they are far from giving any clear idea of his overall contribution to Islam, even less of assessing his role in its revival and renewal (tajdid). In fact, there has been little understanding of the concept of tajdid in Islam. This volume consists of selections from various writings of Ibn Taymiyyah included in Majmu’ Fatawa Shaykh Al Islam (37 volumes) as well as some of his major works such as Minhaj as Sunnah An Nabawiyyah, Dar Ta’arud al Aql wa-An Naql, kitab Ar Rad alaa Mantaqayyin, Al-Istiqamah, and Iqtida As Sirat Al Mustaqeem. These selections will present a clearer and complete view of Ibn Taymiyyah’s concept of Islamic faith , life and society. They are primarily intended to highlight his positive position and mention his criticisms and refutations of other positions only to the extent needed.

[E-book] Heartfelt Advice to a Friend by Ibn Qayyim


In this short yet substantial tract of ibn al-Qayyim, he pens a message of heartfelt advice and appreciation to a friend of his by the name of ‘Alā’ Al-Dīn; invoking Allāh’s Kindness, Guidance and Blessing upon him. Within this translation of ‘Risalatu ibn al-Qayyim ila’ Ahadi Ikhwāwanihi’, the author explain the finer points of having a need in seeking Allāh’s Guidance in all of our affairs and the means to persist upon the Straight Path. The risalah includes six weighty elements by which a Muslim can achieve happiness and pleasure; and through which righteousness can be perfected. The knowledge-based content of the book reflects ibn al-Qayyim’s attention to detail, while explaining it in an easy to understand manners, it’s modeled as sincere advice to his friend that will of course, be of wider benefit to all who read it IN SHA ALLAH. He commented that, “if you come to know what I have explained (in this message), you will then know that the ultimate pleasure, perfect delight and rejoice, grace and good life are found only in knowing Allāh, worshipping Him alone, feeling comfort and affability with Him, longing to meet Him, and devoting the heart and endeavors for Him.

[E-book] Explanation of Important Lessons- Ibn Baz


Indeed, all praise is for Allah, we praise Him, repent to Him, and seek His forgiveness and help. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our own selves and our wicked deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray; and whomsoever Allah leaves astray, none can guide. And I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone, and He has no partner; and I bear witness that our Prophet Muhammad is His servant and Messenger. May Allah, send peace and blessings upon him, his family, and his Companions until the Day of judgment. Indeed Allah Almighty has protected this religion and raised its status among the nations, sending to the world the final Messenger, Muhammad , and with him the final and most complete religion – as Allah Almighty says: This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. Allah Almighty has made the scholars inheritors of the Prophets; they explain to the people their religious duties and they enlighten them so that their worship of Allah Almighty is based on knowledge and insight. One such scholar, whom the Muslims recently lost, is the noble Shaikh and Imam, ‘Abdul-‘Aziz bin ‘Abdullah bin Baz – may Allah Almighty have mercy on him, for he spent his life in knowledge, in teaching, in passing scholarly judgments and rulings. But over and above his knowledge, he was a man who was righteous and pious; he sought little from this world, and his manners were truly noble. From the many works in which the Shaikh served the different branches of Islamic knowledge – ‘Aqidah, Fiqh, Hadith, Da’wah, and so on – is this very important work, “Important Lessons For Every Muslim”, a book that is much needed at the present time because so many Muslims lack a grasp on the fundamentals of the religion, in terms of belief, worship, and manners. Seeking reward, seeking to benefit others, and seeking to apply the Hadith: the best of people is he who benefits others most. I decided to explain this important book, expanding on the clear concepts and rules mentioned by the Shaikh. In explaining and expanding on the Shaikh’s words, I relied heavily, first upon Allah Almighty, and then upon the many other works of the Shaikh himself. I chose to explain the copy printed by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Preaching, and Guidance; it is the last edition that was printed during the life of the Shaikh – may Allah have mercy upon him. I chose it because it is the best copy in terms of organization and editing; moreover, it has an additional section on the topic of Ihsan. To further help and encourage the reader – whether he is a student, teacher, caller to Islam, male, or female – I inserted questions for each lesson (at the end of the book), to help the student both understand and digest the material. I ask Allah Almighty by His Beautiful Names and Most High Attributes to rectify our intentions and to make our children righteous, and to grant us sincerity in speech and in deed; indeed, He is the One upon Whom we rely, and He is Most Capable of answering our prayers. And the last of our supplications is that all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all that exists. Muhammad bin ‘Ali Al-‘Arfaj(May Allah forgive him, his parents, and all Muslims).

[E-book] Six Events From The Prophetic Sirah— Sh. Salih al-Fawzan


“Ponder upon six events from the Prophetic history (Sirah) and understand them in an excellent manner.”

What is intended by the term Sirah is the history of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم, and this is the path that the Messenger used to traverse upon from the time he was dispatched (as a Prophet) until Allah caused him to die, in terms of worship, social interactions, da’wah to Allah the Mighty and Majestic, jihad, Hijrah and teaching. All of his actions, statements, and interactions make up his Seerah.  This affair (the history of the Messenger) is important for the Muslim to study so that one may follow his example.  This is because Allah The Majestic and Most High has made him an example for us.

The six (6) events covered in this book include:

  1. The Descent of Revelation
  2. The polytheists deemed the religion of Muhammad (S) to be good until he openly criticized their religion
  3. His recitation of Surah an-Najm in their midst
  4. The story of Abu Talib
  5. The story of Hijrah
  6. The story of the Apostasy after the Prophet’s Death صلى الله عليه وسلم

[E-book] How to Make the Most of Ramadan


Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) said: “Whoever establishes prayers during the nights of Ramadan faithfully out of sincere faith and hoping to attain Allah’s rewards (not for showing off), all his past sins will be forgiven.” (Sahih Bukhari – Volume 1, Book 2, Number 36)This booklet was initially published on the internet by Islamicknowledge.com. The research team at Darussalam Publishers has reviewed the content thoroughly and improved its presentation significantly. The revised version is being presented for the benefit of Muslims to help them make the most of the Holy month of Ramadan.

Fasting in Ramadan, the 9th month in the Hijri Calendar is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. In this month, Allah has made fasting obligatory upon Muslims, as He had to earlier peoples and nations. Islam declares Ramadan as an annual training program for the Muslims to refresh their commitment to Allah and understand their duties well. This, in turn, helps them enjoy a peaceful and more successful living.

[E-book] Governing Yourself & Your Family According To What Allah Has Revealed


The subject matter of this work has preoccupied and continues to preoccupy the minds of our nation’s members; yet in spite of this preoccupation, many people lack a correct understanding regarding it. Because the issues that fall under the subject matter of this work are so important, I decided to write this work, through which I hope to make plain the way to live and act according to what Allah has revealed. Contrary to what some may think, this work is relevant not just to leaders, but to every individual as well. Each and every human being is a leader and chief of sorts, for just as a ruler is responsible for the welfare of his state and citizens, each one of us is responsible for his flock — the members of his family and, more importantly, his own self…

[E-book] Yes I Converted to Islam and here is Why


All praise is due to Allah, and may He exalt the mention of our Prophet (ﷺ), his household and Companions. Allah has chosen Muhammad (ﷺ) to be His last Messenger to convey His lost Message to mankind. This means that Islam is not restricted to one particular race, rather, it is a universal message to mankind at large. It the only Deen of which Allah approves. He says:

And he who seeks a Deen other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him and he shall be among the losers on the Day of Resurrection. (3:85)

Islam has received throughout ages great response to the point that there is not a single city in the world which is void of Muslims. This is due to the fact that whoever applies reason while studying Islam, cannot help but accepts it out of conviction.

[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.

[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.

[PDF] Abū Bakr’s Befitting Response to a Pagan or an Insult to Another’s Religion?


Critics of Islam often bring up issues that seem to be controversial without providing the proper context for the situation or how such a situation would have been viewed in light of Arab society at the time of the Prophet – peace be upon him. This leads to false information being spread and misleading impressions being given. One such issue is with the wording of a response that the Companion Abū Bakr to one of the pagans. These critics claim that Abū Bakr was unnecessarily insulting and insensitive to the other’s religion. This article will examine the context of this incident and explain how Abū Bakr’s statement would have been viewed by the Arabs during that particular time period.

[E-book] Lying and envying


 

Allah has told us that on the Day of Resurrection nothing would help us except our truthfulness. He will make Kadhib (liar) in speech and· actions the flag by which the hypocrites will be distinguished. Everything that the Lord blames them with has originated within the lying of their speech and actions. So the truth or truthfulness is the mail of Faith, its guide, mount, drive, leader, adornment, and garment. It is the heart and the soul of Faith.

On the other hand, lying is the mail of disbelief and hypocrisy. It is their guide, mount, drive, leader, adornment, garment and heart. The relationship of Kadhib to Faith is like Shirk to Tauhid. Kadhib and Faith can never be together in the same place. If they meet, one of them will push the other out and take its place. Allah has not blessed any person with a blessing after Islam greater than truthfulness. It is actually the life and the survival of Islam. And Allah has never tried a person with something worse than Kadhib. Kadhib is indeed the disease that may spoil the
Faith.

[E-book] Islam and Christianity in the modern world


 

More than a generation has elapsed since Islam and Christianity in the Modern World was first published. This time has served to accentuate the tendencies in Christianity mentioned by the author in his chapter on “Christianity in the Modern World.” Another far-reaching change is the significant increase in the Muslim population of traditionally Christian countries (viz., in Europe and America) through both conversion and migration. The presence of sizable Muslim populations in these countries (notably West Germany,· France, U.K., U.S.A. etc.) has not only brought this two world religions into closer contact in a setting distinctly more favourable to Islam than the encounter with Christianity in the heyday of Western Imperialism and Colonialism, but has also enhanced the possibility of Islam filling the spiritual vacuum which characterises modern Christian Western civilization. Thus the topic of this book is still of contemporary relevance and interest.

[E-book] Guidelines For A Successful Marriage


The sanctity and status of marriage are great in Islam, and it is especially encouraged among the youth. Marriage is an institution that unites a man and woman in a permissible and, indeed, much-encouraged relationship. The couple starts their journey together, each finding comfort in the other in straitened times, and each enjoying the other’s company in prosperous and easy times. In the Quran, Allaah The Almighty calls upon us to ponder on the beautiful and sacred relationship of marriage: {And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your [hearts]} [Quran, 30:21]

Marriage creates a powerful bond which, with mutual affection and sacrifice, establishes a strong Muslim family where offspring are provided with a suitable adherent and practicing environment. Thus, the couple’s children will not only be born Muslims but will live Islam in its true spirit and develop the character and behavior of true Muslims. A Muslim society rests upon the Muslim family, and when the family’s members are trained from childhood to acquire Islamic morals, compete with one another in doing good deeds and engage in productive activities, the Muslim society is strong indeed.

When the call is proclaimed for Jumu`ah (Friday prayer), come fast to the remembrance of Allah.” (Al-Jumu`ah 62: 9) meaning be keen to go and attend it.”

[E-book] The right way- Ibn Taymiyyah (summarised translation)


Our present society – teeming with polytheistic and innovated practices such as invoking the dead, festivals at shrines, seeking help of soothsayers and exorcists, celebration of the birth or death anniversaries of Prophets and saints, unlawful vow and sanctification of persons, places and times, belief in omens and countless other superstitions and so on – stands in need of Shaykh-ul-Islaam’s works that have educated and guided both the commoners and scholars for the last several centuries.

It is hoped that the living topics discussed herein in a highly erudite but lucid style, which has been more or less transferred into English, would enlighten the readers and guide the seekers of truth.

[E-book] Child Education In Islam – Abdullah Nasih Ulwan


This book outlines the basic Islamic concepts in child education. The  author has tried to coordiante the main ideas, as well as the basics  precepts for raising Muslim children in all the different spheres of  life. First of all, the importance of correct belief and faith cannot be inculcated in young children except through the teaching and example of their parents; and obviously, the role of the mature and religious  mother is foremost. This state of harmony can only be achieved when  matrimonial relations are relatively stable. Care is to be taken in  providing young children with all the necessary elements in the fields of ethical, physical and psychological education. This cannot be overemphasized. It is established that the common ailments of human societies, personal as well as social, find their remedy in monotheism and justice. Therefore, emphasis on these two moral principles is essential. Muslim children must develop a clear understanding of the concept of the oneness of Allah, mainly through the performance of devotional acts of worship, to Him, and through developing a sense of justice in all personnel and social dealings. The author has briefly outlined these glorious concepts in this book. Through his deep understanding of Islam, and his eminent conviction and personal adherence to its glorious principles, he introduces this book to the readers, with all practical instructions, with the intention of helping to build up a Muslim nation, worthily to uphold the honorable tenets of the Glorious Qur’an and Sunnah.

[E-book] Men & The Universe – Reflections Of Ibn Qayyim


Reflections of Ibn Qayyim. This book was originally a section of Ibn Al-Qayyim’s book Miftaahu Daar is-Sa’aadah (Key to the Abode of Happiness). This section was extracted from it due to its discussion of some of the Signs of Allah in the human beings and the universe. Also, Ibn Al-Qayyim’s book was chosen due to its perceptive and meaningful wisdom. Another outstanding characteristic of this book is that Ibn-Al-Qayyim calls for the use of the intellect and self-introspection. He encourages the reader to deeply think about the creation of Allah, the Most High — in the human being, existence, animals and nature. The complier, Capt. Anas Abdul-Hameed Al-Qoz, supports the writing of Ibn Al-Qayyim by mentioning modern scientific discoveries, useful notes and beneficial pictures that help achieve the objective. Thus, this book is a continuous and active call to all of mankind to look and reflect upon the Signs of Allah if they want the truth and sincerely wish to follow it. We will show them Our Signs in the universe and in themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth.

[E-book] New Muslim Ramadan Guide


What Is Fasting?
Fasting is called sawm in the Qur’an. The word sawm literally means ‘to abstain’. In Surat Maryam, Allah tells us about Mary, the mother of Jesus, that she said:
I have vowed a fast (sawm) for the sake of the Merciful, so today I shall not speak to anyone. (Maryam 19:26)
The meaning is ‘I have vowed to abstain from speaking to anyone today’. According to Shari`ah, the word sawm means to abstain from all things that are forbidden during fasting from the break of dawn to the sunset, and to do this with the intention of fasting.
Why Do Muslims Fast?
The Qur’an says:
O you who believe, fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those who were before you, in order that you may learn taqwah (God consciousness). (Al-Baqarah 2:183)

 

Taqwa is a very important spiritual and ethical term mentioned repeatedly in the Qur’an. It is the sum total of all Islamic spirituality and ethics. It is a quality in a believer’s life that keeps him/her God fearing all the time.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said that fasting is a shield. It protects a person from sin and lustful desires.

[PDF] A view through Hijab


In the beginning of the 1990’s when I embraced Islam in France, the controversy surrounding the wearing of hijab in school was an extremely heated issue. The French were faced with economic problems which had resulted in high unemployment and social insecurity. This was predominantly felt in the big cities. The immigrant population, especially from Muslim countries, was seen as one of the causes of unemployment. The sight of hijab in their towns and schools aggravated already negative attitudes towards Muslims. The majority of people thought that allowing students to wear hijab was against the public education system’s principle of neutrality on religion. I had not yet become a Muslim, and I did not understand why the schools were so concerned over a mere piece of cloth worn on a student’s head. Observing the hijab from the outside, I also did not understand its significance to Muslims. But I considered that in maintaining neutrality in matters of religion, the schools should still respect a student’s beliefs and his performance of religious duties. As long as this expression did not disturb the school’s discipline, it should be not be prohibited.

[E-book] The Islamic awakening- Sh. Ibn Uthaymeen


My brothers, the Islamic awakening of today has pervaded all Islamic countries, and all praise is for Allah. It has to be understood, however, that this awakening must be established upon a solid foundation – in terms of Allah’s book and Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger [sallallahu alaihi wasallam]. If it is not established upon these primary sources, then it will be a reckless and unstable awakening, which will perhaps destroy more than it will build. But if it is built upon the principles and teaching of Allah’s Book and the authentic Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger [sallallahu alaihi wasallam], then it will have a very positive and effective influence on the Muslim Nation and on other Nations as well.

 

Who would imagine that, at the time, even the Arabs were not under his rule; in fact, the Prophet [sallallahu alaihi wasallam] has not even conquered Makkah; he was still considered to be an emigrant of Makkah? So who would imagine that a king such as Harqal, who ruled over so many people, would say such a statement: “If what you say is the truth, then he will rule over what is underneath these two feet of mine?” Did what Harqal predict actually occur or not? Did the Prophet [sallallahu alaihi wasallam] rule over what was underneath the feet of Harqal, i.e. Sham at the time, Rome ruled over those lands? Isn’t it true that Prophet [sallallahu alaihi wasallam] died before the Muslims conquered Sham?

 

My brothers, if this consciousness that has pervaded the ranks of the Muslim youth today is not based on Allah’s book and the Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger [sallallahu alaihi wasallam], then it will be reckless and misguided, and it is feared that it will destroy more than it will build.

[E-book] Youth’s problem- Sh. Ibn Uthaymeen


Youth is a time of great change and hope for the future. It can be the happiest and most productive time of a person’s life, yet this stage of development can also be fraught with numerous psychological, sociological, and spiritual crises. Because the young people of any society carry the future of their nation on their shoulders, their problem and troubles should be of utmost concern for everyone around them and solution to these difficulties must be practical and concrete.

 

 
Islam offers a perfect code of life which addresses human concerns at all stages of life. The dilemmas faced by contemporary young people are no exception. Worries and misconceptions creep into their minds, make them feel confused and distressed, and may cause them to tum in the wrong direction; this may result in their being led astray. Allah the Creator, however; has bestowed upon humanity complete guidance which, if understood and followed, offers direction to even the most troubled minds and hearts. Young people who follow Allah’s guidance will become a source of pride, inspiration and strength for the global Muslim community. They offer hope for the future and a cure for the ills that plague the world. Their reward lies not only in this world but in the eternal life to come.

[E-book] Sincerity- Sh. Salih al-Munajjid


Muslim scholars have paid great attention to the deeds of the heart, authored many books on this topic, explained the importance of this issue to people and encouraged them to be
mindful of it and develop themselves in this field. This is because the salvation of humankind (after the mercy of Allah) is achieved through having a sound and sincere heart.

The deeds of the heart require greater care and struggle than the deeds of the limbs and the tongue, and if the heart is reformed, rectified and is treated for its illnesses and defects,
then the actions and deeds of the limbs will be done purely for the sake of Allah. Therefore, the main and most essential matter is to reform and remedy the actions of the heart, because without a sound heart there would be no benefit from the actions of the limbs.

[PDF] Contemporary physicists and Gods existence


First...we do not grant him that a thing cannot perish except by decaying; decaying is only one way of perishing; but it is not improbable for something to perish suddenly while it is in its complete form.

Second, even if we grant him that there is no perishing without decay, whence does he know that it does not suffer any decay? His reference to observation posts is not acceptable, because their quantities [the quantities known by them] are known only approximately.

So if the sun, which is said to be a hundred and seventy times or more the size of the earth. We now know that it is definitely more. The mass of the sun is 333, 000 times that of the earth, and its radius is 109 times the earth’s radius., were to diminish by amounts the size of mountains, that would not be apparent to the senses. So it might be decaying, and might have decreased by amounts the size of mountains or more, but the senses cannot perceive this …” (Al-Ghazali, 126)

 
Al-Ghazali’s guess that the size of the sun might be diminishing was, as we can now see, a rare prescience of what science would prove. Scientists now tell us that the sun does indeed decay, but much more than he thought, and that it will ultimately perish.

 
The amount of energy released by the sun is such that the mass of the sun is decreasing at the rate of 4.3 billion kilograms per second. Yet this is such a small fraction of the sun’s mass that the change is hardly noticeable… Our sun is believed to be about 4.5 billion years old, and will probably continue its present activity for another 4.5 billion years. (Wheeler, 596)
