Book: "The History Of Islam" in Three Volumes

 

By: Akbar Shah Najeebabadi

 

It is available here: (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.dar-us-salam(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/store/main.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=Dus&Product_Code=110&Category_Code=BT"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.dar-us-salam(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/store/main.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=Dus&Product_Code=110&Category_Code=BT[/url]

 

I've completed first volume of this edition. And I will say tht this is a MUST READ for every one, who is interested in the History of Islam. It was originally written in Urdu language.

Brief Overview:

 

History stands as the most effective and valuable source of putting nation on the course of progress and prosperity and saving them from the path of disgrace and degradation.

 

At a time, when there is tough competition among the nations of the world to excel one another, the Muslim, despite having the most glorious history, appear to be detached and careless as regards their history.

 

This book presents the true Islamic events and their actual causes before the English readers because the other books in the English language found on the Islamic history have been written by such authors and compilers who did no justice in presenting the true picture of Islamic Era but their prejudice prevented them from doing so.

Sorry Bro, how rude of me!! lol

 

Here's mine:

 

The Day of Rising - Laila Mabruk

 

Brief Overview:

In this sequel to her well-known book The Soul's Journey after Death, Layla Mabrouk addresses and answers these questions concerning the events of the last day. Using many examples from the Qur'an and Hadith, she vividly brings home to the reader the overwhelming reality of what will Inevitably confront every human being on the Day of Judgment "about which there is no doubt".

Mine is, among others, Even Angel Ask ... quite enlightening ..

 

In Even Angels Ask: A Journey to Islam in America, the author attempting to share the American convert's experience of discovering Islam. During his fifteen years of being a university professor on college campuses across the United States, he has met many young Americans of Muslim heritage who avoid or even reject Islam, being unable to reconcile their inherited faith with their acquired Western outlook. One of the principle assumptions behind this book is that even though the American culture has alienated these young people from the faith of their parents, they will be able to relate to what other Americans, of non-Muslim origin, have discovered in Islam. Talking with converts, like himself Dr. Lang found a shared common experience that approximates a characteristic path to the faith. This book takes the reader along this path by discussing conflicts between faith and reason, difficulties associated with the decision to convert to Islam, obstructions to conversion erected by Muslims themselves, the indispensable experience of Islamic rituals, extremism within the Muslim community, and what the future may hold for American Muslims.

By: Dr. Salih Al-Fawzan

 

It is available here: (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.islamicgoodsdirect.co.uk/product_info.php/products_id/272"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.islamicgoodsdirect.co.uk/produc...products_id/272[/url]

 

Very good book for all muslims - MUST READ..

 

Brief Overview:

 

Clarifying the sound Muslim Creed and calling people to believe in it, is the most crucial issue because it is the foundation on which one's deeds are judged whether denied or accepted. This book gives clear explanation of the Muslim sound creed as pointed out in the Quran and Sunnah.

n one of my other favourites is Al Bidyaha wa Nihayah by Ibn Kathir

 

it's a history collection printed in 14 volumes under the name Al-Bidayah An-Nihayah, containing the Stories of The Prophets (alaihi salam) and previous nations, the life story (Seerah) of the Prophet (sal) and Islamic history until his time. He also added a book, Al-Fitan, about the signs of the Final Hour. It is considered to be one of the most authoritative sources on Islamic history.

BOOKS ON SUNNI CREED ACCORDING TO THE MADHHAB OF IMAM ABU HANIFA, COMMONLY KNOWN AS AL-MATURIDIYYA

 

The following is a list I put together in haste today. There are probably others that I have missed tonight; but if anyone wants to add anymore please go ahead. A number of the titles listed thoroughly demolish the batil aqeeda of the innovators of this age from various sects.

 

1) Fiqh al-Akbar attributed to Imam Abu Hanifa (d. 150 AH), rahimahullah. Other short works ascribed to the Imam include:

 

2) Kitab al-Wasiyya (the work has been published with the Sharh of Mulla Hussain ibn Iskandar al-Hanafi, Hyderabad, India, 1321 AH)

 

3) Al-Alim wal Muta’alim (it has been published with the notes of Shaykh Muhammad Zahid al-Kawthari)

 

4) Kitab al-Tawhid by Imam Abu Mansur al Maturidi

 

5) Ta’wilat Ahlus Sunna wal Jama’ah by Imam Abu Mansur al Maturidi

 

6) Sharh Fiqh al-Akbar ascribed to Imam al-Maturidi

 

7) Sharh Fiqh al-Akbar (also known as: Minah al-Rawd al-Azhar) by Mullah Ali al-Qari al-Hanafi. The best edition is the one by our Shaykh: Wahbi Sulayman al-Albani with his Hashiya

 

8) Aqeeda of the Hanafi Mujtahid Imam: Abu Ja’far al-Tahawi. Though the Imam was a contemporary of both Imam’s: al-Maturidi and al-Ash’ari, there doesn’t seem to be any evidence that the three Imams ever met. The Aqeeda of al-Tahawi is formally known as al-Bayan al-Sunna wal Jama’a and a number of commentaries exist. The one to clearly avoid is the one by Ibn Abi’l Izz. The latter is a pseudo-Salafi favourite in this age, but take note, Ibn Abi’l Izz was declared an innovator by the true Hanafi Imam and aqeeda specialist in his age: Imam Ali al Qari (d. 1014 AH). One of the best commentaries is by Shaykh Abdal Ghani al-Ghunaymi (d. 1298 AH), with the notes of Dr Muhammad Riyadh al-Malih (rahimahullah) and Dr Muhammad al-Hafiz (all three are from Damascus)

 

9) Tabsira al-Adilla of Imam Abul Mu’in al-Nasafi

 

10) Risala fi Bayan al-I’tiqad ala Madhhab al-Imam al A’zam al-Mujtahid al-Muqaddam Abu Hanifa al-Nu’man by Shaykh Muhammad Yusuf Atif Pasha (manuscript preserved in Maktaba al-Azhar, no. 3488)

 

11) Al-Sayf al-Mash-hur fi-Sharh Aqeeda Abi Mansur al Maturidi by the Ash’ari Imam of his age: Imam Tajud-Din al Subki (manuscript preserved in Maktaba Arif Hikmat, Madina)

 

12) Al-Nur al-Lami wal Burhan al-Sati fi-Sharh Aqeeda Ahlus Sunna wal Jama’a by Shaykh Mankubris al-Nasiri (manuscript in Maktaba al-Sulaymaniyya, Istanbul, no. 2973)

 

13) Usul al-Din by Shaykh Abul Yusr al-Bazdawi

 

14) Bahr al-Kalam by Imam Abul Mu’in al Nasafi

 

15) Al-Tamhid fi-Usul al-Din by Imam Abul Mu’in al-Nasafi

 

16) Tafsir al-Nasafi – is a Tafsir on the Qur’an with aspects from the Maturidi understanding within it by Imam Abul Barakat al-Nasafi

 

17) Jami al-Mutun fi Haqq Anwa’ al-Sifat al-Ilahiyya wal Aqa’id al-Maturidiyya by Shaykh Ahmed Diyaud-Din

 

18) Al-Masayira by Imam Kamal ibn al-Humam (who was the Mujtahid of the Hanafi school in his age, as well as being a student of al-Hafiz ibn Hajar al Asqalani in Hadith)

 

19) al-Masamira Sharh al-Masayira li-Ibn al-Humam by Shaykh Kamalud-Din Muhammad, well known as: Ibn Abi Sharif al-Maqdisi (d. 905 AH)

 

20) Hashiya of al-Hafiz Qasim ibn Qutlubugha (d. 879 AH) to his teacher: Imam Kamal ibn al-Humam’s al-Masayira

 

21) Aqeeda of Imam Najmud-Din al-Nasafi. This book is well known and a number of commentaries of varying lengths exist; amongst them being:

 

22) Sharh al-Aqa’id al Nasafiyya by Imam Sa’d al Din al-Taftazani. There is also an edition with the notes of the Indian Muhadith: Shaykh Abdal Aziz al-Dehlawi (son of Shah Waliullah), printed by Maktaba al-Imdadiyya, Deoband, India

 

23) Hashiyya al-Kayali ala Sharh al-Aqa’id al Nasafiyya

 

24) Hashiyya al-Assam ala Sharh al-Aqa’id al Nasafiyya

 

25) Al-Hawashi al-Bahiyya ala Aqa’id al Nasafiyya

 

26) Salam al-Ahkam ala Sawad al-A’zam by Shaykh Ibrahim Hilmi al-Wafi

 

27) Al-Sawad al A’zam by Shaykh Abul Qasim al-Samarqandi

 

28) Al-Saha’if al-Ilahiyya by Shaykh Shamsud-Din al Samarqandi

AND FINALLY, NO EDUCATION OF IslamIC LAW COULD EVER BE COMPLETE WITHOUT:

 

 

 

 

Al-Hidayah: A Classical Manual of Hanafi Law

 

hidayah.jpg

The Hidayah represents the refined, distilled and authentic version of a legal tradition developed over many centuries. It presents the corpus of Hanafi law in its approved and preferred form and forges an organic link with the other schools of law.

There is no book that can match the power of al-Hidayah as a teaching manual. Education in Islamic law is not complete without this book. Accordingly, each and every madrassah, whatever its affiliation, imparts instruction in Islamic law through al-Hidayah.

The book was designed by the author in such a way that it makes a vigorous interaction between teacher and student unavoidable. Each sentence presents a challenge both to the teacher and the taught. In this process, the student acquires a deep knowledge of the issues of fiqh and the methods of reasoning employed by Islamic law. The teacher, on his part, has a unique opportunity, while using the book in the class session, to give full expression to his skills and abilities.

This publication of the Hidayah is the complete translation from Arabic written by al-Marginani, arguably being the most popular and important work in the entire fiqh literature.
