The idea behind the Color Coded Tajweed Holy Quran:
Based on a practical understanding of phonology, we have colour-coded the place of some letters to facilitate the correct recitation of the holy Quran.
This had enabled us to classify these letters within three possible categories to enhance the reader's knowledge and remembrance of Tajweed rules, they are:
1. 1. The letters which requires expanded vocalization: we used red color to highlight these letters.
2. 2. The letters which is nasalized: these letters are green in color.
3. 3. The dark blue color indicates the emphatic of the letter (R), the blue color indicates the unrest letters-
4. echoing sound- (qualquala), while the letters which are written but are not pronounced are gray in color.
The reader will very easily get used to reciting the quran by using colors just as he got used to stopping at red lights and passing though green lights.
By engaging in this sublime act, the reader will find him/herself applying 24 rules of Tajweed with ease and precision while his/her mind is left free to contemplate and understand the meaning of Holy Quran.

Traditional Islam in the Modern World
This book seeks to distinguish clearly between traditional Islam and both modernism and the "fundamentalist" or resurgent forms of Islam which are often confused with traditional Islam. The author, who speaks from the traditional point of view, delineates clearly how traditional Islam, as rooted in the Quran and the prophetic Sunnah, and as lived over the centuries by Muslims, differs from both the modernist and the "fundamentalist" schools in so many domains ranging from art and science to politics. He then discusses the encounter of traditional Islam with the challenges which face it in the modem world in general, as well as in the specific realms of education, science, philosophy and architecture and urbanism which are of central concern to the contemporary Muslim world.
The book also devotes a section to some of the leading Western interpreters of Islam who in one way or another have appreciated and made known some aspects of traditional Islam to the West and who represent another dimension of the encounter between traditional Islam and the modern world. Finally, the existing tendencies of thought in the Islamic world are described. The author considers how these tendencies may develop in the future and looks at the trends which are most likely to dominate the Islamic world in the years to come.
"Today. thanks to genuine attempts by certain sections of
the Islamic world to reassert their Islamic character and to seek to preser...read more
Sufism has been described as `the heart of Islam' for it represents Islam's inward or mystical dimension. At the end of the Sufi path is to be found nothing less than the uncoloured Truth or, in subjective terms, one's true Selfhood.
This book supplies a much needed explanation of the essential doctrines and practical elements of Sufism for the ever growing number of people who, from a variety of motives, are attracted to Sufi teachings. Not only students of `comparative religion', but all who seek some outlet from today's stifling materialism will find much in these pages that relates to their condition; for a great virtue of Sufism is that it speaks at one and the same time to man's intelligence and man's heart.
William Stoddart has made a prolonged study of the most important published material relating to Sufism, and this research has been deepened and amplified through personal contacts in the course of journeys to places as far apart as Morocco and Bosnia, Turkey and India. Appropriately, the author begins by introducing his readers to the main features of Islam, which is the framework within which Sufism flourishes, and whose scriptural language it necessarily employs.
Quotes from inside:
"The doctrine of the `oneness of being' has led some to believe that Sufi doctrine is a form of `pantheism'. This is entirely misleading, as the term pantheism is normally used to designate certain European philosophic concepts of recent centuries that have nothing to do...read more
About This Book:
This is a translation of Book One of a very widely read Urdu book Din o Shari'at. It is intended as a very general introduction to what Islam teaches, based on a series of lectures given by the author to university students in Lucknow.
The book is divided into two parts Creed or Imaniyat, and Practice or A'mali Shari'at. This volume covers the first part, and outlines the basic tenets of Islam and the basis on which they and the whole of the Shar'iat are founded. It also answers a number of the objections that have been raised in recent times by different groups and which create confusion in the minds of many Muslims today.
The Bible as we know it, and as the Jews and Christians have known it, and especially knew it in the Prophet's day. is not as reliable as the Qur'an. and has led. to constant variation, especially in its interpretation. Thus despite the difficult relations that exist between the West and the Islamic Middle Fast at present, the basic document for all sides to understand the latter area is the Qur'an, no matter how social scientists or theologians may try to interpret that part of the world after their own fashion.
Religion leads people to predictable action or reaction when its principles govern the outlook of its followers. Thus the Qur'an is shunned or favoured insofar as its principles lend themselves to controlling human behaviour according to the morality or whims of' those in power. Sacred symbols offer a way by which people can look at the Universe, give them a life style which tells them how things arc and how they should be......However, translations by Muslims are not always acceptable. Muhammad 'All's is clear but his commentary and at times the English text can he affected by his sectarian tendency. Besides he has used the Havas Arabic dictionary and this is risky because of its hind thoughts carried over from Catholicism. A. Yusuf `All's is more satisfactory as a commentary but his English is over laden with extra words which neither explain the text nor embellish the meaning. True embellishment is the simple telling word which does not detract, but carries the m...read more

Among the many good deeds that the Prophet guided us to and the evil that he warned us about, are a set of manners that are comprehensive of worldly matters and religious matters, of worship and dealings - dealings with one's family, children, acquaintances, and strangers. On this subject the writings of great scholars like Ibn Al-Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah, Ibn Muflaih and As-Safaareenee have been summarized in this book.
"The description of Paradise which the Muttaqun (the pious believers of Islamic Monotheism) have been promised (is that) in it are rivers of water the taste and smell of which are not changed, rivers of milk of which the taste never changes, rivers of wine delicious to those who drink, and rivers of clarified honey (clear and pure); therein for them is every kind of fruit, and forgiveness from their Lord. (Are these) like those who shall dwell for ever in the Fire and be given to drink boiling water so that it cuts up their bowels?" [(V47:15) The Noble Qur'an]

About Shaykh Ibn'Uthaymeen, it has been said that:
"The Shaykh gave much importance to (the affairs of) his students. He was keen to assist in alleviating the difficulties which came their way during their path in seeking knowledge. In so doing, he allocated free accommodation for foreign students, supplying them with all necessary comforts from food, drink and other than these. "
[al-Yowm (newspaper) No. 10080 / Ibn'Uthaymeen, al-Imaam az-Zaahid - p.573]
Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen mentions: "There is no comparison between one who has knowledge and one who does not, just as there is no comparison between the living and the dead, and one who hears and one who is deaf, and one who can see and ...read more
All praise is due to Allah. We praise Him, seek His Aid and ask for His Forgiveness. We seek Refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves, and from the evil of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whomsoever Allah misguides none can guide. I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah jam. , having no partners, and I testify that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger.
The best speech is the Book of Allah (the Qur'an), and the st guidance is that given by Muhammad. The most evil affairs are innovations; every innovation is a Bid'ah, every Bid'ah is a misguidance, and every misguidance leads one to the Hellfire.

This book comprises the second part of the English translation of
Tazkiyat an-Nufus wa Tarbiyyatuha kama Yuqarriruhu Ulama as-Salaf
compiled by Ahmed Farid, the first part of which has already been published under the title The Purification of the Soul. Both books are concerned with assisting the traveller in life to pass smoothly through this world and safely into the next - and should be read together.
Whereas The Purification of the Soul is concerned primarily with the science of awakening and purifying the heart - on which good inward intentions depend, Heaven's Door is concerned firstly, with outward action - which is the manifestation and outward expression of inward intention, and secondly, with the consequences of inward intention and outward action - which we meet both in this life and after we have died.
Actions are known and evaluated by the intentions behind them and intentions are dependant on knowledge. The actions of a wise man are very different to those of an ignorant fool, even if outwardly they may appear to be similar. Good actions are dependant on a clean heart, and it is only once the heart has been purified that a person can concern themselves with guiding the actions of others. If the teacher's heart is not sound, how can the teacher's actions mirror the teacher's words - and how can he or she teach others?
As we have seen in The Purification of the Soul, this soundness of the heart depends largely on being detached from the world, since desire fo...read more
This is an English translation of Imaam al-Barbahaaree's classic work, Sharh as-Sunnah. The book consists of 170 points on different aspects of the Muslim creed. Extensive notes have been provided, giving relevant passages of the Qur'aan and authentic sayings of the prophet (pbuh ). Ample sayings of the early scholars have also been included.
In every age, there has been a noble company of scholars who stood firm and expended great efforts in defending the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of his Messenger ( pbuh) and in refuting the people of innovated beliefs, innovation, deviation and misguidance. At the head of them towards the end of the third century and the beginning of the fourth was the Imaam who aided the Sunnah and subdued innovation: Abu Muhammad al-Hasan ibn 'Alee al-Barbahaaree.
Compiled in the fourteenth century AD by a prominent Syrian scholar,
Al-Sira al-Nabawiyya by Ibn Kathy is a full examination, in
chronological order, of the background, life and mission of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Drawn from the earliest and most reliable Arabic sources, it offers, in this English translation, the fullest available account of the historical circumstances and personalities most important in the founding of Islam. Ibn Bather's work offers a fine example of Islamic scholarship; the quotations and anecdotes that constitute its core are evaluated in terms of the trustworthiness of their sources.Variant wordings that are related through differing lines of transmission are noted, and Ibn Kathir gives both his own assessments and those of the earliest Islamic authorities concerning the likely authenticity of these records. The comments and conversations, derived from ancient texts, that are quoted in this work constitute the basis of our knowledge of Islam during the lifetime of its founder.
Volume III gives details of the numerous battles and campaigns waged between 3 Ax and 8 Ax to defend and spread the religion of Islam.
Ibn Kathir was born in approximately 1313 in the Boesra district of eastern Damascus, and studied with the many great scholars working in the city during his time. He died in 1374.
