Re: Recommend-a-Book

masha allah, jazakallahu khair for starting this thread

i was wondering if you guys would do book studies for these books, so that everyone on the forums may benefit from them. we may not get as much out of these books if we just read the notes. but, insha allah, we will all get a taste of the knowledge imparted in these books.

Re: Recommend-a-Book

A small abridged version of the book called Nobles of Morals(Akhlaq) by Iman ibn Taymiyyah translated and published by Dar Al Ghadd Al Gadeed, al-Mansoura, Egypt. The translation is not very good.
But the topics on different branches of Akhlaq with the related ayat of the Quran and the hadith give a good understanding of how to improve ones Akhlaq.

Re: Recommend-a-Book

Title: Jerusalem in the Qur'an (an Ansari Memorial Series)
author: Imran N. Hosein
publisher: Masjid Dar al-Qur'an, NY
Printed by; Percetakan Zafar Sdn. Bhd.

Excerpt from the book
" This book has been written for precisely this purpose - to explain to Muslims the strange world in which we live today. It is a world in which the cause of Islam appears to be a lost cause. But having read this book the reader would now know, if he or she had not already known it, that the reality is quitte different. When they know for certain that it is the destiny of Jerusalem to give a spectacular validation of Islam's claim to Truth, Muslims should be able to summon the strength to resist the present war on Islam in which the godless world is making the greatest possible effort to destroy their faith in Allah Most High".

I believe this book is a MUST read for all Muslims, especially who some what feel lost in this uncertain period, end of time (akhir zaman). Ustaz Imran N. Hosein put across crystal clear arguments based on Al-Quran and Al-Hadith. In addition to that he gave numerous past and current and up to date events or examples to support the argument.
