The definitive guide to fasting for every Muslim as elucidated by the Prophet (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam).
An invaluable source for those striving to perfect their fast, and those trying to please their Lord by imitating the best of creation – Muhammad (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam).
The authors, Shaykh Saleem al-Hilaalee and Shaykh Alee Hasan Abdul-Hameed, have managed to produce an original work, collecting the ahaadeth of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) and the sayings of the Companions, as well as the understanding of the early scholars from over a 100 authoritative sources.
Furthermore, they have verified the ahaadeth and brought them together under a number of headings, including: Sighting of the Moon, Lailat-ul-Qadr, Taraaweeh Prayers, Zakaat-ul-Fitr and I’tikaaf.
The status of fasting and its place in Islam will become clear to us, and also the great reward awaiting the one who fasts seeking reward from Allaah, and how that reward increases or decreases depending on its closeness to the Sunnah, as was indicated by the Prophet when he said:
“Perhaps a person will receive nothing from his fasting except hunger and thirst!”
Therefore, we must know the characteristics of the Prophet’s fast, its obligatory duties, its manners and related supplications – and then put them into practice.
In accordance with the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the honourable Sunnah, fasting, tarâweeh and zakâh are three acts of worship that every righteous Muslim should perform. The first and third of them are pillars of Islam, and obligatory; the second is supererogatory, or optional and recommended.
This booklet by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Sâlih al-‘Uthaymeen shows both the wisdom implied in the prescription of these acts and the benefits resulting from their performance. In order to grasp both aspects and improve your practice of these beautiful acts of worship, you are invited and advised to read this booklet. Allah willing, you will find that the regular practice of these three approaches to Allah’s pleasure will make your life much better in this world and in the hereafter.
Footsteps, the third in Umm Zakiyyah’s internationally acclaimed If I Should Speak trilogy, is a story that stands on its own in both impact and inspiration. At the heart of the novel are Ismael and his wife Sarah. Married for twenty-six years and having accepted Islam on a journey they took together, Ismael and Sarah have what every marriage couple hopes to achieve. Stability, dedication, and a comfortable life. But as the story unfolds, the hairline fractures in their marriage become visible, and the fractures become splintering cracks as Sarah discovers a detrimental secret her husband has kept from her for four months—a secret second wife. In the face of his wife’s discovery, Ismael is torn between the love and security of his marriage, and the natural inclinations any man must temper in a world full of choices, and devastating consequences.

The Jinn and Human Sickness
Remedies in the Light of the Qur’aan & Sunnah
The subject of the jinn is one which is of interest to many people. Folk stories abound, and many superstitious practices have arisen in Muslim cultures with regard to protection against the jinn. Many myths surround the ideas of the evil eye and envy, and there are many strange notions surrounding illnesses such as epilepsy and mental illness, which are often thought of as being caused by the jinn.
This book cuts through all the confusion and identifies correct Islamic teachings on all these subjects. The jinn are real and they can indeed harm humans, but this book will teach you how to protect yourself in the manner taught by the Prophet
Break free from fear, superstition and fairy stories, and familiarize yourself with the teachings of Islam on these important aspects of spirituality which the author presents here, drawing on the texts of the Qur’an and Sunnah and the writings of the respected scholars of Islam.
A contemporary presentation of the 99 names of God according to the Sufi tradition in which it is said these are the divine attributes by which God manifests himself in the world and by which He completes the spiritual life of man. Compiled from original Arabic and Turkish texts this is the most extensive presentation available to readers in any Western language. Also included are the 201 Divine Names of the Prophet.
The Unchallengeable Miracles of the Quran
The Qur’an is a book of guidance for all of humanity, and Allah has promised that He will preserve it in its original pristine form until the Day of Judgment. The inimitable style of the Qur’aan and the superior wisdom in it are definitive evidences that it is the Word of God. Besides, the Qur’an has many miraculous verses proving that it is undoubtedly a revelation from God and not the work of a human.
Although the Qur’an is not just a book of science, it clearly states a number of scientific truths that were uncovered only with the help of modern technology in the 20th century. How can we explain the numerous scientific facts mentioned in its verses over 1400 years ago?
Time after time, respected scientists and renowned experts from all over the world, upon studying the verses of the Qur’an (Quraan) have had no other choice but to acknowledge that there were no means of knowing these scientific facts 1400 years ago. The only way they could have reached us is through revelation: proving that the Qur’an is the word of God.
Just as scientists and researchers are fascinated by the wealth of knowledge and depth of meaning carried in the verses of the Qur’an (Koran/Coran), modern readers too will find a great deal of benefit in the amazing information and insight offered by this book.
This book contains the most pertinent Quranic verses, authentic hadiths, delightful poetry, and touching advice on fasting. It is a book for the righteous when they meet for pleasant conversations. It is also a gift for wayfarers when they break their journeys for rest, a treasure for those who share mutual love and respect, I.e. when they assemble for picnics. It is, in addition, an asset for counselors in their lectures. Indeed, the teacher will benefit from it, the orator will turn to it, and the imam of the mosque will find it rewarding to read.
