Eid is not but for ourselves to return to our religion until our last sanctity does return’. Eid is not but for us to become an ummah in which none other than Muhammad is the leader. Eid is not but for us to prepare our souls for war, wherever these souls may be sacrificed. Eid is not but for our heart to become like stone towards the enemy. Be harsh against your enemy for by Allah, the enemy is obstinate. The Muslims are obligated by a duty from which neither lust nor stagnation diverts them. The Muslims the old, the young, from amongst the creation are the praise worthy ones
The Bible, the Qur'an and Science is an outcome of a long and sustained effort of Dr. Maurice Bucaille, an eminent French surgeon, scientist and scholar. It represents the sum-total of his life-long investigation about science and scriptures and their mutual relationship. This work has proved to be a unique contribution in the field of religion and science.
The book appeared some twenty-five years ago in its original French version. Later it was translated into English and earned a wide readership of enthusiastic admirers. It was translated into several other languages including Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and Malay.
The author examines the origins of the Old Testament, sources and history of the Gospels and highlights evidence of science in it. He explores the authenticity of the Qur'an, identifies scientific phenomena described in the Qur'an such as the creation of heavens and earth, astronomy, earth science, water cycle, animal and plant kingdoms and human reproduction. Dr. Maurice Bucaille addressed the French Academy of Medicine in 1976 concerning the existence in the Qur'an of certain statements on physiology and reproduction. He reasoned that:
" ...our knowledge of these disciplines is such that it is impossible to explain how a text produced at the time of the Qur'an could have contained ideas that have only been discovered in modern times..."
This book answers many of the questions often asked by seekers of inward illumination:
• What are the real implications of the doctrine of divine unity?
• How can proper concentration be achieved during spiritual exercises?
• When should one avoid participating in Sufi gatherings?
• What is the relationship between the tongue, the mind and the heart?
• How is one to understand visions received in sleep?
The work also includes the author's commentary on a poem of inner wayfaring, the Ode of al-Aydarus, which speaks of the most exalted 'stations' of the Sufi path, including extinction (fang') and subsistence (baga'). It goes on to explain a number of paradoxes of the Way, such as the reason why saints usually refuse to deploy their miraculous powers, preferring to concentrate on self-scrutiny and the compassionate guidance of others. These points are illustrated with references to the famous mystical poems of Ibn alFarid and Abu Madyan.
The author (c.1720) lived at Tarim in the Hadramawt valley between Yemen and Oman, and is described as the'renewer' of the twelfth Muslim century. His writings include a volume of mystical
poetry and several books, some of which are especially popular in Swahili and Malay translations.

The Night Prayers Qiyam & Tarawih
A most rewarding and fulfilling part of a Muslim's worship are those blessed moments that he spends praying in the depth of the night, privately addressing his Great Lord, sincerely glorifying Him, humbly imploring Him - beseeching His forgiveness and asking Him for favors. The voluntary "night prayer", or qiyaam, is indispensable for a person's moral, spiritual, and physical welfare. Yet, it is greatly misunderstood and largely neglected by most Muslims. This is why we present this book, with two main objectives:
(1) Provide a complete guide on the subject of qiyaam and related issues, in accordance with the Qur'aan, the Sunnah, and the guidance of the Salaf.
(2) Present to the reader, in the process, two important works by the prominent scholar Muhammad Naasir ud-Deen al-Albaani (may Allaah bless him): "Salat ut-Taraaweeh" and "Qiyaam Ramadaan".
This book is not only for Ramadaan, but is for every night of the year. It is a treasure of guidance that one will want to keep by his pillow at night, and grab it as soon as he rises for the greatest bliss of the night. It is a gift that is sure to please and benefit--inshaa'allaah.
