In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Allah's Messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) explained the unity between the members of society and the feelings of mutual responsibility that they share in the following way: 'The believers, in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other, are like a single body; if one limb feels pain, the whole body becomes feverish and restless'.

Child Education in Islam



Author: Abdullah Nasih Ulwan | Pages: 422 | Size: 24 MB

This book outlines the basic Islamic concepts in child education. The author has tried to coordiante the main ideas, as well as the basics precepts for raising Muslim children in all the different spheres of life. First of all, the importance of correct belief and faith cannot be inculcated in young children except through the teaching and example of their parents; and obviously, the role of the mature and religious mother is foremost. This state of harmony can only be achieved when matrimonial relations are relatively stable. Care is to be taken in providing young children with all the necessary elements in the fields of ethical, physical and psychological education. This cannot be overemphasized. It is established that the common ailments of human societies, personal as well as social, find their remedy in monotheism and justice. Therefore, emphasis on these two moral principles is essential. Muslim children must develop a clear understanding of the concept of the oneness of Allah, mainly through the performance of devotional acts of worship, to Him, and through developing a sense of justice in all personnel and social dealings. The author has briefly outlined these glorious concepts in this book. Through his deep understanding of Islam, and his eminent conviction and personal adherence to its glorious principles, he introduces this book to the readers, with all practical instructions, with the intention of helping to build up a Muslim nation, worthily to uphold the honorable tenets of the Glorious Qur'an and Sunnah.

Sickness : Regulations & Exhortations



Author: Muhammad Al Jibaly | Pages: 173 | Size: 5 MB

This book is the first in the series. It deals with sickness, which continues to afflict human beings from birth until death. Sickness strikes as light as a simple cold or allergy, and as hard as a plague or cancer. It keeps the human being under check, reminding him of his weakness and giving him a chance to turn to the One who possesses to afflict and cure. This book deals with sickness, its regulations, and lessons associated with it. It presents the Islamic stand toward a number of modern medical issues, and also discusses important regulations relating to those with disabilities.




The Final Bequest - The Islamic Will & Testament



Author: Muhammad Al Jibaly | Pages: 144 | Size: 1 MB

Writing a will is a religious obligation on every capable Muslim. It protects against many problems and conflicts that could arise after a person's death. This obligation is more emphasized in the West: Failing to write a well-founded will may result in the distribution of one's estate in discord with the Islamic law, and may lead to losses for some of the rightful inheritors. Because of this, we have compiled: 1) Useful authentic information on writing wills, 2) Practical ready-to-fill will-forms, and 3) A brief overview of the Islamic law of inheritane. Our hope is that, by this, we are presenting to the Muslims in the West a much needed service, for which we seek Allah's accetance and forgiveness.

Warning Against Riba (Usury & Interest) Transactions



Author: ibn Abdullah ibn Baz | Pages: 26 | Size: 1 MB

This is a short rebuttal of a research written by Dr. Ibraahim bin Abdullah AnNaasir, in which he tried his best to show the permissibility of most types of Ribaa (usury and interest) transactions that have appeared in recent times in the numerous financial institutions of the world. Hence, we thought English speaking Muslims would benefit from this translated response by Shaikh Abdul-Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz, one of the noted scholars of our time and a staunch supporter and defender of the Manhaj of the Righteous Predecessors (As-Salaf As-Saalih). Shaikh Ibn Baz's response is a refutation of the misguided effort of Dr. Ibraahim An-Naasir to allow Ribaa transactions.

The Etiquettes of Marriage



By: Shaykh Muhammad Naasir Ud Deen Al Albaani

There are in Islam, certain etiquettes upon anyone who marries and wishes to consummate his marriage with his wife. Most Muslims today, even those who exert themselves in Islamic worship, have either neglected or become totally ignorant of these Islamic etiquettes. Therefore, I decided to write this beneficial treatise clearly explaining these issues on the occasion of marriage of someone dear to me. I hope that it will be an aid to him and to other believing brothers in carrying out what the Chief of the Messengers has ordained on the authority of the Lord of the Worlds. I have followed that by pointing out certain issues important to every one who marries, and with which many wives in particular have been tested.

Governing Yourself And Your Family



Author: Husayn Al-Awayishah | Pages: 64 | Size: 1.5 MB

The subject matter of this work has preoccupied and continues to preoccupy the minds of our nation's members; yet in spite of this preoccupation, many people lack a correct understanding regarding it. Because the issues that fall under the subject matter of this work are so important, I decided to write this work, through which I hope to make plain the way to live and act according to what Allah has revealed. Contrary to what some may think, this work is relevant not just to leaders, but to every individual as well. Each and every human being is a leader and chief of sorts, for just as a ruler is responsible for the welfare of his state and citizens, each one of us is responsible for his flock -- the members of his family and, more importantly, his own self…




Sword Against Black Magic & Evil Magicians



Author: Waheed Abdussalam Baly | Pages: 191 | Size: 8 MB

The Author has extensively relied on Classical Scholars such as Al-Layth, Al-Azhari, Ibn Mandhur, Ibn Faris, Fakhr Ar-Razi, Ibn Qudama Al-Maqdisi, Ibn Al-Qayyim and Many Others for his references. We often hear about cases of lunacy, constant headaches and stomach aches, insomnia, lethargy, hearing voices, sexual inability, sterility, frigidity, shattered marriages, woman's continuous bleeding; and we often tend to have the undemanding answer that 'it is Allah (SWA), or, as the ignorant would put it, 'it is nature.' Certainly, it is undisputable that anything in the Heavens and the Earth is managed by Allah , but we should not discard that Allah; has also commanded us to consider the causes of events. It is high time that we stopped and considered for a moment that, besides normal causes, there is the evil force of Sihr, the Arabic equivalent to sorcery. The sorcerer and Satan work in partnership to provide an 'intent-to-harm service' to their client, in return for a mere pittance which they receive from those with weak personalities and from the wicked, who hold grudges against their Muslim brothers and sisters and who love to see them suffer under the effects of sorcery.

Magic & Envy



Author: Muhammad Mitwalli ash-Sha’rawi | Pages: 81 | Size: 3 MB

Magic, the temptation of the devil, and envy, the temptation of the ego has always been found in the societies of people. And therefore, naturally, these two threats to decency are being dealt with in the last revelation from Allah to His creation, and the last Messenger, may Allah give peace and blessings to all of them, similarly dealt with these topics in his advice to his contemporaries. Based on the two prime sources for muslims, Sheikh Sha'rawi guides us through a deeper and more profound understanding of the origin of these two evils, and gives us ways to deal with them.




Honouring Parents



Author: Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid | Pages: 72 | Size: 1 MB

Allaah mentions the command to treat parents well alongside the command to worship Him as He says (interpretation of the meaning): “And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents” [al-Isra’ 17:23] Obedience to parents is obligatory on the child with regard to that which will benefit them and will not harm the child. With regard to that which does not bring them any benefits or which will cause harm to the child, he does not have to obey them in that case. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Ikhtiyaaraat (p. 114): A person is obliged to obey his parents with regard to that which is not sinful, even if they are immoral evildoers… This has to do with that which is beneficial for them and not harmful to him. End quote.
