Belief in Allah



Although the vast majority of mankind believe in a Creator or Supreme Being, their concepts vary. Islam, in the Qur'an and Sunnah, affirms the existence and Oneness of the Creator and describes Him as having the most perfect attributes, thus enabling man to have the proper concept of Him and to establish a strong bond with Him based on the understanding of His sublime attributes. But the influence of philosophy and other ideas that are alien to Islam led to the emergence of distorted concepts about Allah.




The Minor Resurrection



In this book, Dr. Umar S. al-Ashqar examines all these issues from the point of view of the Quran and Sunnah. He looks at issues of death and what happens to a persons soul after death, including the questioning of the angels and the torment of the grave. He also examines the signs of the Hour, which indicate that the Day of Judgment is approaching many of which are already happening. As always he quotes extensively from the texts, placing these issues squarely within the Islamic framework and dispelling the myth and misunderstandings that have arisen and become prevalent.




The World Of Jinn & Devils



What are jinn and devils? Where do they live? How do they impact our life? This pioneering book draws from the Qur'an and hadith in answering questions about the critical Islamic belief in Al-Ghaib, the unseen. It discusses the wisdom behind their creation, interaction with humans, eyewitness accounts, need for knowledge about them and common misconceptions about their power. The book argues that despite the dominant secular worldview that dismisses any un-observable phenomenon as non-existent, humans believe in the unseen. Furthermore, it is important to understand their place in creation to avoid satanic influences and come closer to Allah.




The World of the Noble Angels



About the Book: From the moment an individual is conceived in his mother's womb, until his death and beyond, angels play a part in human life. Angels bring forth the soul of the dying and they bring comfort or inflict torment in the grave. An angel will sound the Trumpet on the Last Day, and angels will be present on the Day of Judgment until they accompany people to their ultimate destination in Paradise or Hell.




The Messengers and the Messages



Is it true that mankind today has reached such a level of progress that they have no need of the Messengers and their teachings? Are humans capable today of guiding themselves without referring to the methods set out by the Messengers?




Paradise & Hell in Light of the Qur'an & Sunnah



In the Light of the Qur'an and Sunnah Nothing is more important to the believer than entrance into Paradise and the avoidance of Hell. This will be the fruit of his/her deeds in this life. This topics from the topics of the unseen is a major issue of faith. The author has indeed covered all the issues of this reality in this book. The description of Paradise and Hell and its people will make every reader more conscious of his ultimate goal in life and keep him/her busy in the remembrance of its realities.
