Uthman Ibn Affan (R) - Dhun-Noorayn



In this book, Dr. As-Sallabi presents the life of the third caliph of Islam, `Uthman ibn `Affan, and highlights his great achievements, as well the issues and turmoil that he faced due to the hypocrisy movement that plagued the Muslim society. He also addresses the misrepresentations of `Uthmaan, fabricated by his enemies and detractors and perpetuated, inadvertently or otherwise, by writers and historians, as well as the activities of the hypocrites and the effort they put into fabricating these lies and causing division in the Ummah, the effects of which Muslims are still suffering today. The study of history is of great importance, especially for Muslims who have been denied access to their heritage in many ways due to the upheavals that befell the Muslim world in recent decades and centuries, and due to tampering and insertions in their own books of history.




'Ali ibn Abi Talib (R)



This book is far more than a biography, as it discusses major issues that have their origins in the early decades of Islam, the repercussions of which are still felt today. In this book, Dr. Sallabi guides the reader through a myriad of hadiths and reports, peeling away the centuries-old layer of fabrications and distortions through which hostile elements both in the Muslim world and beyond sought to conceal the truth. What emerges is a clear picture of the first great turmoil that engulfed the Muslim world and how the noble Companions of the Prophet and the members of his family worked together to resolve these momentous issues, following the guidance and teaching brought by the Messenger of Allah. The true battle for hearts and minds is that which is raging in the Muslim world today, where many vested interests are seeking to distort the very self-image of the Muslims. It is high time for us to reclaim our history and to stop letting others tell it for us. This book is of great importance as it sets the record straight on a period of our history that is of major significance. Every Muslim who cares about the big issues faced by Islam and Muslims should read this book.




An Introduction To The Companions



Allah chose Muhammad, peace be upon him, above all creation to convey His message, and He chose the people who were around His messenger to defend and spread the Deen, The companions were described by the Prophet as being the best of generations, thus it is a must for every Muslim to follow and emulate their ways. Abu Hasnayn explains the importance and virtues of the companions of the Prophet. These series of Khutbas (sermons) provide the listener with a great introduction to the lives of the four rightly guided khulafa: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali, may Allah be pleased with them all. The lectures give an insight into the lives of these great men who led the Muslims of their time to victory by Allah's permission. What lessons can we derive from their lives? Listen and be amazed by their simplicity, sincerity and service to Islam.

And the first to embrace Islam of the Muhajirun (those who migrated from Makkah to Al-Madinah) and the Ansar (the citizens of Al-Madinah who helped and gave aid to the Muhajirun) and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allah is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success.

The Conqueror of the World



A towering figure, they say that when he used to be in the market place amongst the people, it would seem as though he is on horseback! A staunch character, firm in upholding the law of Islam; a person who walks around at night seeking to aid his people. When he would walk on one side of the street the Shaytan would avoid him and go on the opposite side! A Caliph that spent his night and day caring and looking after his Ummah, first to set up policing in the Muslim Ummah. Yet a Caliph that would weep until his beard would be soaked. An inspirational talk on the life and character of Umar ibn Al-Khattab.

Abdullah Ibn Zubayr The Seventh Caliph



Abdullah ibn Zubayr, the Grandson of Abu Bakr, nephew of Aisha, son of Zubayr ibn Al-Awwam, one of the ten guaranteed Jannah and Asma (known as the one with the two waist belts). Sahaaba (may Allah be pleased with them) would say three things; no one disputed regarding Abdullah ibn Zubayr "His bravery, eloquence and worship". He was the first child to be born in Medina; upon nobody's birth were the Sahaaba as happy as upon the birth of Abdullah ibn Zubayr. The Seventh Caliph, his final discussion with his mother is one of the most touching that history has ever captured. It exemplifies the bravery of mother and child.

Abu Bakr Siddique



By Ahmad Ali. From the day he embraced Islam until the day he died, Abu Bakr As-Siddique (Radhi Allahu Anhu - May Allah be Pleased with Him) was the ideal Muslim, surpassing all other Companions in every sphere of life. During the Prophet's lifetime, Abu Bakr was an exemplary soldier on the battlefield; upon the Prophet's death, Abu Bakr (R) remained steadfast and, through the help of Allah, held this nation together. When others suggested keeping Usaamah's army back, Abu Bakr insisted - and correctly so - that the army should continue the mission which the Prophet (S) had in mind. When people refused to pay Zakaat, and when the apostates threatened the stability of the Muslim nation, Abu Bakr was the one who remained firm and took decisive action against them. These are just some of the examples of Abu Bakr's many wonderful achievements throughout his life.

Women Around the Messenger



By Muhammad 'Ali Qutb. Women entering the fold of Islam played an enviable prominent role, side by side their counterparts, in shaping and developing the Muslim society as a model from the onset, emancipating humanity, men and women, from the shackles of deep-rooted ignorance. Women in Islam have a very special place, status, and dignity that is unknown to mankind before or after. The life sketches of the early female believers, in this book, stand as beacon and outstanding models for the so-called "weaker sex" and call for the revival of the pristine, lofty, high position of women in the society once again. The women in this book are listed in categories, such as "Mothers of the Prophet", "Wives of the Prophet", "The Prophet's Daughters", and many more categories

Khalid Bin Al-Waleed (Sword of Allah)



Khalid bin Al-Waleed was one of the greatest generals in history, and one of the greatest heroes of Islam. Besides him, Genghis Khan was the only other general to remain undefeated in his entire military life. A measure of Khalid's genius is that he was the only person to inflict a (temporary) defeat on the Prophet Muhammad, (may Allah bless him and grant him peace).The original title of the book, "The Sword of Allah: Khalid bin Al-Waleed, His Life and Campaigns" was written by the late Lieutenant-General A.I. Akram of the Pakistan Army, in October 1969.

Khabbab bin Al-Aratt



Abdul Basit Ahmad

Many Muslims who were weak and enslaved suffered inhumane persecutions in the early days of Islam. Yet, they remained steadfast and brave in their belief in Islam and support of Prophet Muhammad (S).
