We should recite the Qur'aan as it should be recited.
We should understand the Qur'aan just as the Prophet, his Companions and the Pious Predecessors understood it.
We should act by it, judge by it and should be happy with its judgments since it judges with justness.
It is a Book appropriate for all times and places.
We should be guided by its guidance, since it leads us to eternal bliss.
We should take our manners and etiquettes from the Qur'aan, for indeed the Prophet's manners and etiquttes were the Qur'aan which he implemented upon himself and his Companions.
We should go back to the Qur'aan and the Sunnah as a judge in all our disputes.

The essays presented in the History and Philosophy of Islamic Science discuss the principles behind the different sciences cultivated in the Islamic world from the third century of the Islamic era onwards and the place of science in relation to the other branches of Islamic learning. In defining what Islamic Science means, Professor Bakar shows how these sciences are organically related to the fundamental teachings of Islam. He also highlights the similarities and differences of the Islamic approach from the secular modern approach.
What Happens After Death?
If you've ever wondered "What happens after you die?" then this is the book for you.
It takes the reader from the moment of death right up to the Day Of Reckoning and beyond.
The author, a very learned scholar, Maulana (Teacher) Ashiq Ilahi, quotes heavily from the Quran and Ahadith (Teachings of The Prophet Muhammad - Peace Be Upon Him ) to paint an accurate picture of the bliss awaiting the believers and the torment awaiting the disobedient and the disbelievers in the hereafter.
The book starts by discussing Barzakh, which is the interval between death and the Day Of Judgment. Both the condition of the pious believers and the disobedient are discussed at length. It also gives a very detailed account of heaven and hell, as well as the events of the Day Of Judgement.
In WAY TO THE QUR'AN, Khurram Murad sets out to share the fruits of his own journey with the ordinary, inexpert seekers after the Qur'an, especially the young men and women, who sincerely desire to read and understand it in order to fulfil their commitment to Allah, to His message and mission. The book has been born out of the conviction that the Qur'an, being the eternal Word of the Ever-living God, is as relevant for us, today, as it was 1400 years ago. Consequently, we almost have a right to receive its blessings, in some measure, as did its first believers, provided we fulfil the necessary guidelines. Each Muslim therefore has a duty to read and understand the Qur'an, and live by it. To explain the necessary guidelines is the purpose of this book.
It consists of seven chapters on what the Qur'an means to us, what provisions are essential prerequisites; what postures and actions of heart, mind and body will lead to full inner participation; what rules of reading should be observed, why and how to understand it; how to study collectively, and what it summons us to live for. Some of what the Prophet, blessings and peace be on him, said about various parts of the Qur'an has been gathered in one appendix; another appendix suggests syllabuses for use in study circles, something which may be very useful. This is not a book to be put away after one hurried reading. A wayfarer should find it useful as his constant companion all along his journey. THE ISLAMIC FOUNDATION is an educ...read more
The Authority and Importance of the Sunnah
The word "sunnah" is defined in detailed as it is used by scholars of different disciplines.
The authority and importance of the sunnah is determined via a discussion of about fifty verses of the Quran.
The roles of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and the indispensability of his sunnah are clearly spelled out.
The position of the sunnah vis-à-vis the Quran is dealt with in detail, demonstrating that the two go hand in hand as the foundation of Islam.
Allah's promise to preserve the sunnah and the ways and means by which the sunnah was preserved is also discussed.
The ruling concerning one who denies the place of the sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is given. It is shown herein that the sunnah—which is the true implementation of the Quran—is the only real "version" and way of Islam.
The final chapter discusses the real meaning of "adhering to the sunnah" as well as a discussion of what a commitment that truly is.
Al-Ghazali on the Manners Relating to Eating is the eleventh chapter of The Revival of the Religious Sciences which is widely regarded as the greatest work of Muslim spirituality. This volume begins the section dealing with man and society, and the norms of daily life. While concentrating on a daily activity, eating, al-Ghazali presents the importance of aligning every aspect of one's life with religion and spirituality. Referring extensively to the example of the Prophet and to that of the early Sufis, al-Ghazali illustrates how the simple activity of eating can encourage numerous virtues which are themselves necessary for the remainder of the spiritual life.
The sections of Al- Ghazali on the Manners Relating to Eating are divided into what a person must uphold when eating alone, how a person must conduct himself when eating in company and the manners of hospitality. Through these sections, al-Ghazali also discusses lawful and unlawful foods and practices, cleanliness, fasting, general health issues, contentment with little and generosity.
Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1 1 1 i), theologian, logician, jurist and mystic, was born and died at the town of Tus in Central Asia, but spent much of his life lecturing in Baghdad or leading the life of a wandering dervish. His most celebrated work, The Revival of the Religious Sciences (Ihya' `Ulum al-Din), of which this is an important section, exercised a profound influence on Muslim intellectual history by exploring the mystical sig...read more
About the Book
Al-Basheer was a magazine dedicated to Islamic sciences. It was published from 1987 to 1995. During that time, it developed a small but very loyal following. Since it stopped being produced, there have been numerous requests for reprints of the old issues. Another and better suggestion was decided upon: reprinting of the original articles in book form. This is the first volume of such a proposed series. This particular volume contains a number of articles from the editor of al-Basheer, Jamaal al-Din M. Zarabozo.
The articles contained in this volume come from the first two years of al-Basheer. Among the numerous articles contained herein are: "Allah's Description of the Hypocrites," "Between Islam and Kufr," "Islam and Innovations (I): The Meaning of Bidah," "There is no Compulsion in the Religion," "Daily Congregational Prayers and Combining the Prayers," "Zakaat and Jewelry," "Abu Hurairah: A Preserver of the Sunnah," "The Importance of Jihad in the Life of a Muslim," and "The Importance of the Sunnah and Hadith in Islam."
These articles have been in great demand and it is hoped that their publication in book form will ease access to them on a large scale.
