But Adam finds courage in learning that Allah is able to Create and Protect us all. In Finding Courage, your kids will also learn how to call the Adhan (the call to prayer), trust in Allah when they're afraid, and, with the help of animation, write the word "Bismillah" in Arabic.

This is the first full biography of Abdullah Quilliam (1856-1932), the most significant Muslim personality in nineteenth century Britain. Uniquely ennobled as the Sheikh of Islam of the British Isles by the Ottoman caliph, Sultan Abdul Hamid II in 1893, Quilliam as a charismatic preacher, created a remarkable community of Muslims in Victorian Liverpool, which included a substantial number of converts.
A successful solicitor, Quilliam fought for the rights of the citys poor and in the high noon of European colonialism, defended the Ottoman caliphate and independent Muslim states through his two international publications, The Crescent and The Islamic World. After 1908, in controversial circumstances, Quilliam left Liverpool and spent the rest of his life under a pseudonym, but still figured as a major contributor to British Islam in London, where he was involved with the Woking Mosque.
Based on exhaustive archival work, Ron Geaves not only provides the first account of Quilliams colourful and turbulent life, but examines his teachings and considers his legacy for British Muslims today.

Discovering Islam From Its Original Sources
Translated by Professor Basil Collins Reviewed By Dr Mummad Hamid Alta'I. Mugaddasi was born in the year 945 of the Common Era (CE),
which corresponds to the year 334 of the Islamic calendar (AH), and
died towards the close of the millennium. Defining the area of his study as that where the presence of the religious and political institutions of Islam dominated, he travelled throughout the regions observing, enquiring, researching, taking notes and writing drafts. His work was eventually published in 985cE/375AH, and a revised edition was produced three years later.
Early in the second half of the nineteenth century the German orientalist Aloys Sprenger brought to the attention of the West a manuscript of al-Mugaddasi's work. Sprenger's enthusiasm over the content of the manuscript was reflected in his judgment that its author was the greatest geographer of all time. The translation by Basil Collins published here is the first rendition into a Western language of al-Mugaddasi s treatise.
Al-Muqaddasi s work bespeaks an interested and interesting man, seeing his world through a frame of reference derived from his deeply held religious beliefs, yet capable of making assessments with probity and common sense, striving to get at the truth of the natter.

The most serious mistake a man makes is not pondering. It is not possible to
find the truth unless one thinks about basic questions such as "How and why am I
here?", "Who created me?", or "Where am I going?." Failing to do so, one becomes
trapped in the vicious circle of daily life and turns into a selfish creature
caring only for himself. Ever Thought About the Truth? summons
people to think on such basic questions and to discover the real meaning of
life. Insightful answers are offered.
This books is about the lives of those Companions and Commanders who led the Islamic forces in the violent and strife-torn arenas of conflict against the Kuffar (disbelievers). They struck terror in the hearts of the enemy and the strong forts and palaces of Caesar and Chosroes trembled before their might. However, in this compilation, there are not only the stories of the battlefields but also the stories of bravery and courage, valor and piety, austerity and simplicity. These stories describe the true circumstances that led the Muslims to fight more powerful enemies than they were at that time.
"Journey through the Qur'an" is the last and perhaps the most important work of the Egyptian scholar Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali. Whereas previous commentaries have always concentrated on explaining individual words and verses of the Holy Book, Sheikh al-Ghazali examines and explores the general theme or themes of each Sura in turn, and shows how they are expounded in the text.
Drawing upon his profound classical Islamic learning and an extensive knowledge of modern science, Sheikh al-Ghazali has broken new ground in Qur'anic studies, bringing to bear a fresh but wholly authentic approach. This is a work which all serious students should have, to complement the classical tafsirs and studies. Indeed, "Journey through the Qur'an" will prove useful to all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, who desire to increase their knowledge and understanding of Allah's final Revelation to mankind.
Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali was one of the most influential Islamic scholars of the twentieth century, both as an author and in the field of Da'wa. Born at Buhayra, Egypt in 1335/1917, he received his schooling at the Alexandria Religious Institute before entering the Faculty of Usul al-Din at the University of al-Azhar.
In 1362/1943, al-Ghazali was appointed Imam and lecturer at al-Makataba al-Khadra in Cairo. He later became a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a close associate of Sheikh Hasan Al-Banna. During the early 1950s he worked for the Islamic Movement in various capaciti...read more
ISLAM AND THE DIVINE COMEDY
slam and the Divine Comedy, is an abridged translation of La Escatologia Musulmana en la Divina Comedia, originally published in Spanish in Madrid in 1919. The author, Prof. Miguel Asin Y. Palacios, though a Catholic priest, was attracted by the Muslim philosophers and sufis of Spain, particularly Ibn Massara, Ibn Hazm, Ibn Rushd and the great sufi Ibn al-Arabi. He wrote several books on Hispano-Islamic philosophy and sufism, but the international renown he earned was on account of this book. After years of extensive research, he- discovered parallels between the Islamic lore about the afterlife based on Hadith and The Divine Comedy by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), a work for which he is justly famed. The similarities, far from being superficial, pervade the entire poem. Prof. Asin concluded that Dante had derived most of the features of and episodes about the hereafter from (i) the Hadith literature relating to the Prophet Muhammad and his ascension (mi`raj) and (ii) to the spiritual visions of Ibn al-Arabi. In his opinion, The Divine Comedy was not an entirely original work, as Dante had had before him a ready made pattern based on Islamic writings on the after-life.
With the publication of this work, Prof. Asin found'' himself in the -eye of a storm, as nationalist Italians, the Roman Catholic clergy, and other European Christians could not reconcile themselves to the thought of their most cherished religious poem being based o...read more

The classification of knowledge is a recurring theme in Islamic scholarship. Successive generations of Muslim scholars, from al-Kindi in the ninth century to Shah Waliallah of Delhi in the eighteenth century, have devoted considerable efforts to the exposition of this theme. The lives and the ideas of the three thinkers discussed in Classification of Knowledge in Islam - al-Farabi (870-950AD), al-Ghazzali (1058-1111AD) and Qutb al-Din al-Shirazi (1236-1311AD) - cover the pivotal period of Islamic history from the first flourishing of the philosophical sciences to the sacking of Baghdad by the Mongols. In addition, each of these three thinkers was either a founder or an eminent representative of a major intellectual school in Islam. Al-Farabi was the founder and one of the most prominent representatives of the mashsha'i (Peripatetic) school of philosopher-scientists. Al-Ghazzali is still recognised as the most famous theologian/sufi of Islam. Qutb al-Din al-Shirazi represents the ishraqi (Illuminationists) school of philosophy. Prof. Osman Bakar's Classification of Knowledge in Islam is the first work of its kind in the English language and is based on extensive scholarships and reference to the original texts.
The Book Of Misers
1-Jahiz (AH 160/AD 776 to AH 225/AD 869) was one of the greatest
exponents of Arabic prose of all time. His scholarship, the breadth of
his interests, and his ability to express his ideas and arguments with vigour and humour were outstanding; The Book of Misers is his comical masterpiece, and one of the earliest works of fiction from the Islamic world.
Generosity is regarded by Arab society as one of the principle virtues, and this satire on miserliness has a clear social purpose.With his acute powers of observation, light-hearted scepticism, his comic sense and satirical turn of mind, he ridicules both individuals and groups such as school in asters, singers or scribes. In addition, there is much incidental detail about traditional culture and conduct. It will appeal to the modern reader for its comical power, sometimes covert and sometimes straight-faced, which remains undiminished 1,100 years after it was written.
The present translation by the late Professor R. B. Serjeant makes this work available to the English-speaking world for the first time. Professor Serjeant was one of the most eminent Arabic scholars in Britain, and since the 1950s he had used extracts from this work when teaching Arabic to his students, as he felt it gave great insight into traditional Arabic society.
Sa'd bin Mu'adh was the chief of the Bani Abdul Ash-hal clan, a branch of AlKhazraj tribe. He was a man of dignity, honour, wisdom and courage. He was among the bitter enemies of Islam, but when he accepted Islam, he devoted himself to defend it. He supported Islam with his wealth, bravery, wisdom and all his might so much so that up till today he is said to be 'The True Supporter of Islam.' When he died, the angels welcomed his soul in the best manner, and his body was emitting the nice smell of musk.
In this book, the stories of the prophets have been compiled from 'Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah' (The Beginning and the End) which is a great work of the famous Muslim exegete and historian Ibn Kathir and has a prominent place in the Islamic literature. The stories of the prophets and all the events in their lives have been supported by the Qur'anic Verses and the Sunnah (traditions) of the Prophet (S). Wherever it was necessary, other sources have also been reported for the sake of historical accounts, but on such places a comparative study has been made to prove the authenticity of the sources. Ibn Kathir has reproduced the views and interpretations of all the great exegetes of the Qur'an of his time. The systemic narratives of the Stories of the Prophets have been written in chronological order which renders a historical style to the book.
This project started from three origins.
The Association of Muslim Researchers (AMR) launched a distance learning scheme to enable any interested student to gain the newly-created qualification of GCSE Islam (Edexcel 1478/9) by postal tuition.
The UK Islamic Mission (UKIM) needed a book for use in their madrasahs which would enable their students to gain a state qualification as well as to continue their programme of Islamic Studies.
The writer and teacher Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood retired from classroom teaching after 33 years at the `chalk face' but still had the urge to teach, plus the burning ambition to enable any interested Muslim to gain GCSE Islam, even if they were unable to study at school.
As she had already written text books for GCSE, and been involved in updating the UKIM course-books for youngsters at the madrasahs, and had later agreed to be AMR's postal tutor; it seemed the obvious thing to make the `knowhow' available to the widest possible market.
For the first time in UK it is now possible for a student to do GCSE Islam without any other world faith accompanying it; and for the first time it is possible to qualify by examination alone, without course-work handed in to a teacher over a two-year period. All you have to do is study the syllabus, get the. course-books, do the 'donkey-work'; then you can put in your entry for GCSE Islam, walk in, and do it.
So the opportunity is now available to all - not only teenagers, of course, but any other person who ...read more
