[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.

Introduction

In an attempt to make use of Muslim scholarship in the field of Da`wah, the E-Da`wah Committee (EDC) presents in this ebook a conversation that took place between the prominent Muslim scholar Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali and an atheist.

creation. Finally, EDC calls on any atheist to watch a video about the creation of the universe from an Islamic perspective. All atheists are invited to visit the Truth Seeker website to find their way to God..

[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] 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] Scriptures of Christianity & Islam: A Basic Comparison


 

Christians and Muslims who learn something of one another’s religion find that a crucial issue is the nature of Jesus. The majority of Christians deify Jesus while Muslims say that he was no more than a prophet of God, a faultless human being. The doctrine of the Trinity avows that three distinct co-equals are God. In particular, Jesus is said to be God the Son or the Son of God. As the Muslim questions details of this theology the Christian characteristically forms a common explanation for our differences: He complains that Muslims do not understand the Trinity: that we are actually accusing Christians of Tritheism and other heresies.

 
So the Muslim seeks clarification of the teaching and asks at every step: “How could that be so?” For example, we insist that the term “Son of God” cannot have a literal interpretation. Sonship and divine nature would be necessary attributes of such an actuality, but these are incompatible. The first describes a recipient of life while the second describes One who received life from no one. These are mutually exclusive requirements then. To be a son is to be less than divine, and to be divine is to be no one’s son.

 
As a discussion proceeds, it is the Christian who will eventually take refuge in the response: “These are things that we cannot understand.” His assessment of the Muslim’s problem becomes his own confession. The Christian explanation becomes self-defeating so there is a change of tactic.

 
He complains that the Muslim refuses to accept what cannot be understood. But the modified approach is a diversion. Now the concepts of verification and understanding are confused. To illustrate: Chemical reactions may be verified but the atom is not thereby understood. Facts are catalogued but not always explained. This distinction is the key to our concise reply. It is the Muslim who must redirect the discussion. Our primary issue is more basic than resolving the incongruities of Trinitarian doctrine. Rather than ask how the Trinity can be so, we should ask why it must be so. “We ask, “Why must Jesus be divine? Can we verify the necessity of this belief?”

Women around the Messenger [E-Book]


womenaround2

Indeed, the first person to believe in Allah as the Lord and in Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), as the Messenger and Prophet was his wife, Khadeejah (radiAllahu anha). She was the fist person to support the Messenger of Allah [sallallahu alaihi wasallam] She strengthened him, assured him and consoled him. She received the Prophet and his message with her big heart. After her, many women embraced Islam, not in compliance with their husbands’ will or out of tribal solidarity or in obedience to their fathers’ command. Rather, these women, in most cases, embraced Islam independently, out of conviction and in demonstration of their right of choice.
If there are men Companions, there are also women Companions. If there are ‘Men around the Messenger’ there are also ‘Women around the Messenger’.

 

One of the diseases of our contemporary age with all its achievements and setbacks, with its scientific breakthrough and cultural defects is that the woman has been turned to a ‘doll’ or something like a doll in all the senses of the word. I do not think that I have exaggerated in this.

 

Take for instance, the advertisement of any product in any of the mass media, the woman is disgustingly, cheaply and flimsily dragged into this advertisement even if the product is just the necktie that men wear. This is in addition to her being used as an instrument of sexual arousal.
This is just an example of how the woman has been reduced to a cheap commodity. There are other uncountable examples of this, facilitated through Satanic hands.
It is unfortunate this horrible disease has crept into the midst of the Muslims under the guise of cultural interrelation and in total disregard for our purity and distinguishing values and for many other uncountable reasons.
