1. Perceptions of Islam in European Writings
By Ahmad Gunny
 

SALE

PERCEPTIONS OF ISLAM IN EUROPEAN WRITINGS is part of the wider study of Islam and the West: a history of European, mainly French and English, intellectual responses to Islam from the seventeenth century onwards. It focuses on the nineteenth century. Studies on Islam and the West have so far tended to be dominated by nonMuslim writers. This study, therefore, attempts to put forward a scholarly, Muslim, point of view, on a subject which has acquired increasing importance in our time. Relying on primary European and Islamic source materials, it remains firmly committed to the notion of fidelity to European thought. It paves the way to a constructive dialogue between equals, Islam and the West. AHMAD GUNNY first joined the Civil Service in Mauritius. Posted to London, he served at the Mauritius High Commission as Second Secretary and later became First Secretary. Educated at Leeds, Oxford and London Universities, he was awarded a Ph.D in French, London. For many years he taught French at Liverpool University, becoming Reader there before being elected Fellow at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. In Oxford he gives Seminars on Islam and the West at Colleges of the University, OCIS and Maison Francaise. Among his works are: Voltaire and English Literature (Oxford, 1979), Images of Islam in Eighteenth-Century Writings (London, 1996) and critical editions of Voltaire texts, including De l'Alcoran et de Mahomet, in Complete Works (Oxford, 2002). THE ISLAMIC FOUNDATION is an educ...read more

4. Inner Dimensions Of Islamic Worship
By Mohammad Al-Ghazali
 

click here for reviews  (3 reviews)
SALE

In this work, Al-Ghazali goes beyond the most obvious aspects of ibadah (like prayer, almsgiving, fasting, pilgrimage, etc). These selections from his `Ihya `Ulum al-Din explain, in his characteristically powerful and inspiring way, how to reap the rich harvests of spiritual, moral and social upliftment that must be their reward. It is an especially important book for young men and women of today who are seeking God's pleasure - a lifestyle impossible to maintain without an understanding of the inner resources which Islam offers.AL-GHAZALI, Abu Hamid Muhammad (450/1058-505/1111), a towering figure in Islam, was born at Tus, near Mashhad in Iran, in the early Seljuq era and studied theology and law at Nayshapur. His formidable intellectual abilities soon won him honour and respect at the Court of the famous Seljuqi Prime Minister, Naizam al-Mulk, and, while still in his early thirties, he became Professor at Madrasa Nizamiyya in Baghdad and attained great prominence there. But soon he abandoned his professorship for a decade of contemplation and studies. He returned for a while to lecture at the Nizamiyya in Nayshapur before his death. He wrote a large number of works which include Al-Munqidh min al-Dalal (a biographical account), Tahafut al-Falasifa; but his magnum opus remains the Ihya"Ulum al-Din in four volumes, compiled during his period of retirement and contemplation. INNER DIMENSIONS OF ISLAMIC WORSHIP consists of selections from Al-Ghazali's Ihya', translated into En...read more

6. Towards Understanding The Quran Vol.2 (Tafhim al-Quran, Tafheemul Quran)
By Sayyid Abul A'la Mawdudi
 

TOWARDS UNDERSTANDING THE QUR'AN is a fresh and highly readable English rendering of Tafhim al-Qur'an, Sayyid Mawdudi's monumental and masterly Urdu translation and commentary. Here is a Tafsir with a difference, by a scholar of an entirely different sort. An immense wealth of profound understanding of the Qur'an is here, so is a vast treasure of knowledge and deep insights, illuminating historical accounts and philological discussions, and a highly systematic exposition of social, political, economic and legal teachings. But what makes this Tafsir unique is that it translates the Qur'an into a book to be lived by, a mission to be lived for, and a duty that a reader can no longer evade or postpone. This rare quality is imparted not only by the depth of his scholarship and style of exposition, but also because Sayyid Mawdudi lived by what he expounded, as his life abundantly proves. This Tafsir answers contemporary questions, and makes the Qur'an fully relevant to the concerns of our day, yet it loses nothing of its timelessness nor sacrifices any of the traditional understanding. It demonstrates the unity and coherence of the Qur'an by centreing everything in it on its message, like gems hung on a single string. Each Sarah is prefaced by an account of its background and teachings: Maps and indexes add greatly to the understanding. To sum up: in this Tafsir, Sayyid Mawdudi is offering us what we need most to understand and live by the Qur'an. ZAFAR ISHAQ ANSARI, Director Gen...read more

7. In the Shade of the Quran Vol.11 (Surahs 16-20)
By Sayyid Qutb
 

click here for reviews  (1 review)

EVER SINCE its revelation 1400 years ago, the Qur'an has been a book of guidance and inspiration, a reference point, and a rich source of social and moral dynamism for hundreds of millions of people throughout the world who believe it to be the immutable word of God. Hardly a generation passes without a fresh attempt to unravel the meanings of the Qur'an and gain deeper insight into its universal message within a contemporary perspective. In the Shade of the Quran is more than `just another' commentary; yet it is not too over-reaching or outlandish to be a completely new interpretation. It is an earnest, sincere and sober look at man's contemporary achievements and difficulties in the light of the message of the Qur'an. It is an effort to vigorously explore its rich wisdom, and expand its invaluable guidance for the benefit of an increasingly `sophisticated', yet highly perplexed modern society. The work, which is by far Sayyid Qutb's largest and most profound, spans the whole of the text of the Qur'an. It was written, and partly re-written, over a period of more than 15 years, most of which the author had spent in Egyptian prisons, during the 1950s and 1960s. In it is embedded Sayyid Qutb's insight, highly esteemed intellectual vigour, and his widely-acclaimed literary prowess. In the Shade of the Quran has been universally recognised as an outstanding contribution to Islamic thought and scholarship, to which students and scholars, as well as contemporary Islamic reviva...read more

10. The Hidaya: Commentary on the Islamic Laws Vol. 1
By Al Hasan Ali Marghinani
 

SALE

Vol. 1 - Contains Part 1 and 2 Shaykh Burhan uddin Ali (503-593 AH) who was born in Marghinan, a village fifteen farsakh from Samarqand in Farghanah, wrote the volumnious celebrated law treatise. The Hidayah, literally `the guidance'. In the words of the Dictionary of Islam, it is the hidayah fil furu' or 'guidance in particular points.' The book covers all subjects of Islam relevant to everyday life. The opinions of the jurisprudents and the imams are cited on all legal issues involving salah, zakah, charity, mutual dealings, marriage, divorce, dower, gifts, death, funeral, iddah, orphanage, fosterage, wills, bequests, inheritance, guardianship, waqf sales, partnership, huddud or punishments. The authorities cited include Imams Abu Hanifah, Shafi', Malik, Ibn Hanbal, Zafar, etc. Differing opinions are discussed in the light of the noble Prophet's ahadith and the rulings of the respected sahabah like Sayyidina Umar and Ali The English translation of Charles Hamilton was published in four volumes in 1791 CE. This was reprinted now and then without any revision. We at Darul-Ishaat have now revised it and done away with the biased discourse. This difficult brain-racking and time-consuming task is accomplished by Mrs. Z. Bainter. The work will enable scholars and the common men to explore Islamic principles concerning every field of life and to develope ideas on how to apply them and to solve complex issues.

12. Wholeness and Holiness in Education
By Zahra Al Zeera
 

SALE

Critically examining the western, secular approach to formal education the author contests the value of an education system focusing solely on the intellectual and physical aspects of human development. The methodological aim and structure of this approach are compared to those of Islam which Dr Al Zeera notes gives credence to the importance of spiritual and religious factors, as well as scholarly ones, with the overall objective of forming a whole and holy human being who, instead of resisting the paradoxes of life, uses their interrelatedness as a means of personal and societal development. One interesting factor examined within the broader framework of the study is the area of female spirituality, an element, which the author argues, is vastly under-represented in prevalent Islamic literature. This study is a holistic view of knowledge and a sociological discussion adopting an unconventional approach of using the author’s own personal experiences as the basis for debate and analysis. We are invited to enter the world of understanding and observation to experience for ourselves an unusual approach to dialectical thinking.

19. Traditional Islam in the Modern World
By Seyyed Hossein Nasr
 

SALE

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 education, science, philosophy and architecture and urbanism which are of central concern to the contemporary Muslim world. The book also devotes a section to some of the leading Western interpreters of Islam who in one way or another have appreciated and made known some aspects of traditional Islam to the West and who represent another dimension of the encounter between traditional Islam and the modern world. Finally, the existing tendencies of thought in the Islamic world are described. The author considers how these tendencies may develop in the future and looks at the trends which are most likely to dominate the Islamic world in the years to come. "Today. thanks to genuine attempts by certain sections of the Islamic world to reassert their Islamic character and to seek to preser...read more

20. Islamic Life and Thought
By Seyyed Hossein Nasr
 

SALE

This collection of essays by one of the best known contemporary Muslim scholars writing in the English language covers many facets of Islamic life and thought. The author has brought together studies dealing with practical as well as intellectual aspects of Islam in both their historical and contemporary reality. Although concerned with the scholarly dimension of the subjects with which he deals, the author devotes himself especially to the contemporary significance of such themes as religion and secularism, the meaning of freedom, and the tradition of Islamic science and philosophy. The traditional perspective of the author runs throughout all of these studies and provides a unified framework for the work despite the diversity of the subjects treated. The essays, many of with have appeared over the years in various journals and collections on Islamic studies, have been re-written and revised in the light of later research and scholarship as well as certain issues which have become of special contemporary significance. Considering the current interest in the Islamic world in the West and the necessity felt by many to gain firsthand knowledge of Islam as both religion and civilisation, the present work is a timely addition to the small collection of writing in European languages which provide veritable keys for a better understanding of Islam and Muslims while remaining faithful to the perspective of the Islamic tradition.
