Shaikh Muhammad al-Tahir ibn Ashur is the most renowned
Zaytuna Imam and one of the great Islamic scholars of the 20th century. The publication of this translation of Shaikh Ibn Ashur's Treatise on Maq5sid al-Sharicah is a breakthrough in studies on Islamic law in the English language. In this book, Ibn Ashur proposed Maqäsid as a methodology for the renewal of the theory of Islamic law, which has not undergone any serious development since the era of the great imams. Ibn Ashur — quite courageously — also addressed the sensitive topic of the intents/Macfisid of Prophet Muhammad (SAAS) behind his actions and decisions. He introduced criteria to differentiate between the Prophetic traditions...read more
Kamran A. Beg Events (www.kamranabegevents.com) has built up an outstanding global track record since its inception on July 11, 2003, achieving 100 marriages so far, subject to the Divine will. These marriages have been predicated on the Muslim male and Muslim female dialogue incumbents adopting the 3-Dialogue Rule, a robust halal marriage-inspired dialogue framework created and developed by Kamran A. Beg Events that forms the very kernel of the book and which as we shall discover in the course of our discussions is equally applicable to both family-based and non-family based introductions between a Muslim male and a Muslim female seeking marriage. The 3-Dialogue Rule is predicated on the de

Perspectives on Morality and Human Well-Being: A Contribution to Islamic Economics explores in detail the proposition that (private) morality, especially religious morality, is vital for achieving economic well-being and human happiness; and that this linkage would be even stronger in an Islamic economy. The book highlights the need for an active interaction between religion, morality and economics in general and in an (idealized) Islamic economy in particular. It is the contention of the book that moral principles mould individual's economic and social behaviour, that the microscopic power of religious morality makes it more effective than secular morality in achieving social goals. It is, ...read more

Traditional Islam in the Modern World
This book seeks to distinguish clearly between traditional Islam and both modernism and the "fundamentalist" or resurgent forms of Islam which are often confused with traditional Islam. The author, who speaks from the traditional point of view, delineates clearly how traditional Islam, as rooted in the Quran and the prophetic Sunnah, and as lived over the centuries by Muslims, differs from both the modernist and the "fundamentalist" schools in so many domains ranging from art and science to politics. He then discusses the encounter of traditional Islam with the challenges which face it in the modem world in general, as well as in the specific realms of ...read more
