What does the Prophet Muhammad teach?
For centuries his teachings have been bringing light and peace to countless people, enlivening the hearts and lives of billions of men and women down the ages. Him they have loved more dearly than their own selves, in him they have found their greatest source of inspiration and guidance, he has been the ultimate norm and the perfect example for them, he has been their mainstay in personal vicissitudes and tribulations, his teachings have led them through social and political turmoils as well, he has inspired them to greater and greater heights of spiritual and moral upliftment and civilizational achievements - in short, through him God has spoken to them, He has been with them.
He lived all his life in the full glare of history. Those who loved him and followed him have preserved even the minutest details of how he lived, what he did, and what he said.
It is important to know what he did teach. However, many people in the world today hear very little of his teachings. These teachings are as little known, as much ...
In the Quran, unlike the edited sacred texts of the other messengers, we have the direct guidance of Allah sent as revelations over a period of 23 years to Prophet Muhammad. In this small book the author has made a selection of direct commands, orders from Allah that apply to each one of us, male or female, old or young, clever or simple, rich or poor. They are not random choices. They are the things that Allah specially wishes us to do.
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.
Allah’s Creation is wonderful; His beauty is in everything--every tiny grain of sand, every raindrop, every leaf, and every living thing. We can study the things spread out before us and learn from them and draw hope from them. Through a wider appreciation of His wonderful Creation, we can praise and honor the Almighty. This Book helps us in doing so by presenting inspiring thoughts from the Quran on Nature

To excel in leadership, one must have very special qualities. Some acquire such qualities as they grow more mature, while others possess them from the outset. The later are called “born leaders,” the Prophet Muhammad being the best example. His conduct and qualities made it possible for him to excel in all branches of management and leadership to a degree which is still unmatched to date. Young, would be leaders should, therefore, endeavour to acquire these exceptionally befitting qualities, so as to surpass all others in the field of management, thus achieving the goal of leadership.
In this present volume compiled by Abdul Ghani Ahamed Barrie the characteristics necessary for leadership are listed in alphabetical order. Supporting extracts from the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad and the applicable, translated verses from the Quran appear throughout the book.

Towards Understanding the Quran: Abridged version of Tafhim al-Qur'an
Towards Understanding the Qur'an Abridged version is a fresh English rendering of Tafhim al-Qur'an, Sayyid Mawdudi's monumental and masterly Urdu translation of the Qur'an and abridged commentary. Here is a work with a difference, by a scholar of an entirely different sort. An immense wealth of profound understanding of the Qur'an is here, a vast treasure of knowledge and deep insight, and a valuable exposition of some social, political, economic and legal teachings of the Qur'an. But what makes this work unique is that it presents the Qur'an as 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 scholorship and style of exposition, but also because Sayyid Mawdudi lived by what he expounded as his life abundantly proves.
This is a unique collection, gleaned from the Qur'an, of all the promises, full of blessings and grace, and boundless compassionate love, made directly to us by Allah. The texts are accompanied by photographs of natural beauty and holy places that add to our sense of thankfulness and wonder.
May those who accept and believe in the promises be blessed with an
uprush of joy and overwhelming gratitude, drawing them closer in love to the Creator, the Compassionate, the Merciful Allah.
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 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.
At a time in which the Muslims are beset with trials from every periphery and within,comes this heartening book rooted in the commandments of Allah (swt),the Sunnah and the excellent guidance and examples of the Muslims that have come before us.
Don't be Sad is an absolute must-read for all people.It is full of practical advice on how to repel despair and replace it with a pragmatic and ultimately satisfying Islamic outlook on life.It exposes to the modern reader how Islam teaches us to deal with the tests and tribulations of this world. So, take heart and hold firmly onto the rope of Allah.
this no exaggeration to say that Islam and violence are contradictory to each other. The concept of Islamic
violence is so obviously unfounded that prima facie it stands rejected. The fact that violence is not sustainable in
the present world is sufficient- indication that violence as a principle is quite alien to the scheme of things in
Islam. Islam claims to be an eternal religion and, as such, could never afford to uphold any principle which could
not stand up to the test of time. Any attempt to bracket violence with Islam amounts therefore, to casting doubt
upon the very eternity of the Islamic religion. Islamic terrorism is a contradiction in terms, much like `pacifist'
terrorism. And the truth of the matter is that, all the teachings of Islam are based directly or indirectly on the
principle of peace.
