The Diseases of the Hearts and their Cures by Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah
Know O beloved reader that it is most important to spend one's time and energy in treating the heart, and hastening to correct and purify if from sickness and all sins. This is due to the heart occupying a great and lofty position in Islaam, for it is the place to which the Lord looks and the storehouse for tawheed, faith and sincerity.
Actions are distinguished, one from the other, with respect to their excellence in the Sight of Allaah in accordance with the condition of the heart, not by their number or form, but rather due to the strength of the caller, his truthfulnes, his sincerity and the extent to which he prefers Allaah over himself...
Al-Haafidh ibn Hajr al-Asqalaanee, may Allaah have mercy upon him and provide us with his knowledge, said: "The heart has been singled out for this because it is the leader of the body, and through the purification of the leader the subjects become purified, and with his corruption they become corrupted. So if you, O servant of Allaah, wish to cure your heart then it is upon you to be truthful with regards to seeking refuge with Allaah and putting your trust in Him, to pray a great deal of supererogatory prayers, to perform the actions of obedience to Allaah frequently, to pray the night prayer while the people are sleeping, and to treat your heart by making it continuously stick to the remembrances and by befriending only the righteous... and to frequently ...read more

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.

The Book Of Islamic Faith(prrpared by Majlisu; ulama of SouthThis book is written to present the true Islamic meaning, importance, rewards and demand of IMAAN and KUFR respectively according to Quran and Hadith. While the western Kufr theories, in today's age of liberalisation, ignorance and materialism, has created a great confusion among Muslim by attributing fanciful interpretations of IMAAN and KUFR. The writer has tried well to explain thoroughly Islamic concept of IMAAN and KUFR so that a Muslim should be aware of snares which may entrap them to destroy their IMAAN and their AAKHIRAH. Towards the end of life, even a pious man, may commit Kufr and dies as kaafir because he was life long kaafir, even though be performed sala , paid zakaat, performed Haj, having no real Imaan in his heart. His righteous deeds were nothing but mirages as Qur'an says:
"Those who commit kufr, their (righteous) deeds are like glittering sand in a plain. A thirsty man thinks it to be water; but when he reaches there, he finds it to be nothing...",.
So it is very important. for a Muslim to have a clear conception about IMAAN and KUFR. Allah may protect our IMAAN.
This is a beautiful photo-intensive book of the Islamic world based on the last ten years of the travels of Peter Sanders, a world-class photographer based in the UK.
Reflecting on the wonderful photos in this volume, one finds the architecture, people, and landscapes of the Muslim world somehow communicating the subtle and sublime spirituality of Islam and the demeanor of a land and people little understood in the West.
Such a collection of excellent photography has the uncommon authority of dispelling stubborn myths in a way that no lecture or academic treatise can dare attempt. The photos are accompanied by quotations from the Qur'an, the Prophet , or scholars.
Also included are brief histories of the photos and Mr. Sanders' experience in taking them.
The intention of this book is to enable us to see the Miracle of Creation in things we often encounter in the world around us, but to which we give no special thought. Throughout our entire lives, most of us think about our own materialistic needs and lead a life far removed from God, thus failing to see the evidence of God's existence. For interested readers, this book will open up new horizons on the wonder of God's Creation. Perusal and understanding this book will be important steps in arriving at an understanding of the Creator.
Though innumerable theories have been put forward concerning the evolution of life on earth, the fact that none of them have stood up to scientific scrutiny is discussed in detail in this book. The aim of the author is to encourage readers to think about basic, faith related issues, such as the existence of God and His Greatness, and to expose the distortions of many currently held theories and beliefs.

How can a time slice of centuries in our view be a single moment in another dimension? What is the parallelism between Einstein's Theory of Relativity and the Qur'anic verses. All of these questions are answered in this book where it is described that time and matter are not absolute truths but mere perceptions.

This book was awarded First prize by the Muslim world league at world-wide competition on the biography of the Prophet held at Makkah Al-Mukarramah in
The Prophet's Night Journey And Ascent Into Heaven. `Abd-Allah Hajjaj has compiled from al-Fath al-Bari a selection of Hadith on the Isra', the Prophet Muhammad's (S) Night-Journey from the Kab' ah in Makkah to Bayt al-Maqdis - Jerusalem, and the Mi'raj, the Prophet Muhammad's (S) ascension to heaven. This selection of Hadith takes us from Makkah to Jerusalem then up to the seven heavens, to the meetings with previous prophets and shows us the wonders of Paradise.
The Isra' and Mi'raj are of great importance to all Muslims, for this is when Allah commanded the five daily prayers, one of the five pillars of Islam. Also Prophet Muhammad (S) leading all the other prophets in prayer shows that Islam is the fulfilment and perfection of mankind's religious development, and that he was the last and greatest of Allah's Messengers.
This book is an authoritative source on a matter of central importance to everyone: the events of Akhir al-zaman, the final period of this world's history. The work is by Ibn Kathir, an eminent Muslim scholar, and is based entirely upon authentic texts. In many Ahadith, or Traditions, the Blessed Prophet Muhammad (S) described the condition in which people would live in those times. Some of the developments foretold by the Prophet (S) have already come to pass, such as the construction of high-rise buildings in the Middle East, also the frequent break-up of family ties and the almost universal presence of usury.
Numerous Ahadith of the Prophet (S) describe such matters as the Dajjal or Antichrist and other temptations and disasters to which mankind will be subjected to as the disintegration of the natural order of things accelerates. The Last Days are also marked by supernatural apparitions which will manifest on an awesome scale the power of Allah Almighty. For Muslims there can be no more urgent or momentous questions to confront than these. For non-Muslims seeking knowledge about the Islamic perspective, this book presents material of vital importance in a clear English translation.
The author of this book was one of the leading scholars of the 8th century of Islam (the 14th of the Christian era). Born in Busra, Syria, around the turn of that century, Isma'il Abu'I-Fadl `'Umar Ibn Kathir was educated chiefly in Damascus, initially specializing in the study of Hadith. He ...read more
About the Book
"Why do some people try to prove the existence of Allah while others deny it altogether. What is the reason for this extraordinary contradiction which exists despite the fact that the human self contains something which innately recognises Allah's existence."

Using straightforward but compelling arguments, Shaykh Al-Sha'rawi brings home to the unprejudiced reader the overwhelming evidence in the universe which points inevitably towards its unitary Divine Source.
