Fortress of the Muslims invocation from the Quran and Sunnah compiled by Sa'id bin Wahf Al-Qahtani. With 132 invocations.
IF WE EXAMINE THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS all over earth, we'll find they are rooted in human hearts. Covetousness, the desire to aggress and exploit, the longing to pilfer natural resources, the inordinate love of wealth, and other maladies are manifestations of diseases found nowhere but in the heart. Every criminal, miser, abuser, scoffer, embezzler, and hateful person does what he or she does because of a diseased heart. So if you want to change our world, do not begin by rectifying the outward. Instead, change the condition of the inward. It is from the unseen world that the phenomenal world emerges, and it is from the unseen realm of our hearts that all actions spring.... We of the modern world are reluctant to ask ourselves-when we look at the terrible things happening-"Why do they occur?" And if we ask that with sincerity, the answer will come back in no uncertain terms: all of this is from our own selves. In so many ways, we have brought this upon ourselves. This is the only empowering position that we can take.

This book is a humble attempt to convey the essence of the Qur'an by presenting the contents of each of its surahs or chapters in condensed form. The focus throughout the book is on the spirit of the Qur'an, on its message and its teachings and on the lessons that should be derived from it for our daily life. Although the book is primarily intended for the general reader who is interested in studying the Qur'an, it will also be found a useful tool for da'wah.
This book highlights aspects of the lives of thirty Companions of the Prophet, some famous, others almost completely unknown. Here the trials and triumphs of the early Muslims as individuals are well-portrayed. Their various paths to Islam - sometimes direct, sometimes long and tortuous, their devotion to the noble Prophet, their endeavours in peace time and their exploits in war - all serve to cast them in a heroic mould. This is the first of two (formerly published as a series of three) books based on original Arabic sources and written in a style that is lively and often gripping. The lives of the Sahabah or Companions of the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, is a rich storehouse of knowledge, guidance and inspiration. The men and women whose stories are told here helped to lay the foundations of a new world order, and it is only fitting that they should be more widely known.
The Encyclopaedic is intended to make the Holy book approachable to the reader.In this meticulous and painstaking efforts, the author has attempted to put together verse in the Quran dealing with one subject togather in one place i sequence. By listening simliar themes and idea (which are otherwise spread across diffrent parts in the Quran) under headings arrangalphabetically, it seeks to make the Quran comprehensible to the beginner. At the same time for anyone willing to refer to a specific them in the Quran, this work will serve as an invaluable guide. It is hoped that scholars too will find this an indispensable work of refrence.
This collection of the sayings of the Prophet was highly praised in its earlier editions, and it has now been carefully revised and classified. It is published in the earnest hope that it will serve in some degree to remove misconceptions as to the meaning and message of the religion of Islam, particularly with regard to tolerance in Islam and the status of women. It is also hoped that it will promote still further the goodwill and understanding between the East and West.

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.
