In ‘A Guide to Male-Female Interaction in Islam’, Dr. Hatem Al-Haj tackles some of the most often asked questions about free mixing and intermingling between men and women in Islam, including: are Muslim men allowed to interact with female students, and vice versa, in a virtual classroom?

Do mixed wedding ceremonies comply with the Sharia? Read this bilingual book to find the answers and more!
Interaction between unrelated members of the opposite sex is inevitable at times. Yet, questions about whether or not it is permissible, and if so, to what extent, need to be asked. Are Muslim men allowed to interact with female students in a virtual classroom, and vice versa? Can Muslim women pursue a professional career which necessitates their interaction with men? Is it appropriate for a woman to serve her husband’s guests? Do segregated wedding ceremonies comply with the Sharia? At times like these, one searches for a text that addresses these contemporary issues, based on the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Dr. Hatem al-Haj has taken a broad view of the subject, keeping in mind the opinions of both categories of scholars: the ones who have taken a stricter stance and the ones who are more flexible in their interpretation. This is a comprehensive and well-researched work, filled with practical advice, from which students and professionals, both male and female will benefit immensely.
الاختلاط مع أفرادٍ من الجنس الآخر من غير الأقارب هو أمر لا مفرّ منه في بعض الأحيان ولكن لا بدّ لنا من التساؤل: هل هذا الاختلاط مسموح ؟ وإذا كان مسموحاً به فإلى أي درجة؟ لا يمكن أن يكون لا بد منه وممنوعًا في آن. أرى أن نقول: “ولكن لا بد من التساؤل عن الأحوال التي يكون فيها جائزًا وتلك التي يكون فيها ممنوعًا، ومتى كان جائزًا، فإلى أي حد، وما هي الآداب التي ينبغي أن تراعى؟” هل يسمح للطلاب الذكور التواصل مع الطالبات في قاعات الدرس الافتراضية؟ هل يجوز للنساء أن يعملن في مهنةٍ تقتضي اختلاطهن بالرجال؟ هل من الملائم للمرأة أن تقوم على خدمة ضيوف زوجها من الرجال؟ هل تتوافق حفلات الأعراس المختلطة مع الشريعة الإسلامية؟ للإجابة عن هذه الأسئلة وغيرها فإننا نحتاج في زماننا هذا إلى نصٍ يعالج هذه الأمور المعاصرة بالاعتماد على القرآن والسنة. وهنا يأتي دور كتاب (الاختلاط بين الجنسين) للدكتور حاتم الحاج والذي ينظرفيه نظر واسعة إلى هذا الموضوع، آخذاً بعين الاعتبار آراءَ الفريقين من العلماء: المغلبين لجانب الحظر والمغلبين لجانب الإباحة. وهذا الكتاب هوثمرة الكثير من الأبحاث المتعمقة والشاملة، وهو مليء بالنصائح العملية التي تفيد كلاً من الطلاب والدارسين، الذكور والإناث على حد سواء.

Dr. Abdullah al-Tayyar & Shaykh Sami al-Mubarak Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 286 | Size: 5 MB
The Jinn, Magic and the Evil-eye Dr. Abdullah al-Tayyar & Shaykh Sami al-Mubarak Introduction by Shaykh Abdul Aziz ibn Abdullah ibn Baz From haunted houses and levitating objects to demons invading and taking over human bodies.
There are abundant movies available in the Western world which focus on this phenomena.
Indeed, it is from human nature to be intrigued by the unknown and unseen. But what does Islam say concerning this mysterious world? It is actually part of a Muslim’s religion to believe in the unseen, to believe in the world of the Jinn, and to believe in magic. Most of us are unaware of the reality of the Jinn who live alongside us and interact with us in more ways than we can imagine. What is the correct Islamic viewpoint on the Jinn and the affairs connected to them? Can magic really affect us? Do Jinns have the ability to possess and harm us? Can we go to fortune-tellers? What is the evil-eye? And most importantly of all, how do we protect and cure ourselves from Jinn possession, magic and the evil-eye? Find out the answers to all these questions as the authors provide an unprecedented, detailed account of this topic. Continue reading →
Islam is a universal message to all of humankind and for all times, until the Day of Judgement, whereas every other prophet was sent to his own people, and for a limited time period. Prophet Jesus’ mission was limited to the ‘lost sheep of the house of Israel’. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was sent for everyone: male or female, rich or poor, Arab or non-Arab, slave or freeborn. Islam can be practiced anywhere on the earth; it is not tied to locality or culture. So, if you are not from the tribes of Israel (the descendants of the twelve sons of Prophet Jacob) as in the case of Indians, Asians, Africans, indigenous peoples and Europeans, and you are a Christian, then you are following a prophet (Jesus) and a message which was not meant for you. This means you are not on the right track! Continue reading →
“But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur’ân nor acts on its teachings) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection.”[The Noble Qu’ran 20:124]Continue reading →
Imam ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 105 | Size: 3 MB
The discerning scholar is adept at diagnosing the various spiritual illnesses resulting from sins, and treating the malaise in the heart. If he finds a person failing into despair, he tries to ignite the spark of hope in the heart. if, on the other hand, he see that one in a reckless and fearless state, he works to in still the fear of Allah in his heart. Thus, the scholar treats sickness by using its opposite as a cure. Ibn al-Jawzi, has collected herein ominous narration, warnings against wrongdoing, and stories of forbidding and punishment that shake the hearts from their slumber. The self-assured one becomes anxious; the heart-hearted becomes soft; the dried tear ducts start to flow; slothful becomes motivated. Continue reading →

Concise Presentation of the Fiqh of the Sunnah and The Noble Book
This valuable introductory compilation of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) issues takes the reader by the hand and shows him/her clearly what to do. As the author restricts the discussion to what is most directly derived from the Qur’an and the Sunnah and, therefore, above dispute, this book is valuable both as a work of fiqh and as a collection of sound hadiths.
Although there are a number of introductory compilations of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) issues available, this particular work is unique in several ways. First, the author has restricted his bases for fiqh to the Qur’an and the authentic Hadith of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). Dr. Abdul-Azeem Badawi has avoided using any of the weak or rejected hadiths that are so often included in other books of fiqh. The author has also restricted his discussion to what is most directly derived from the Qur’an and the Sunnah and, therefore, above dispute. This book is thus valuable both as a work of fiqh and as a collection of sound hadiths. The topics which are dealt with include purity, prayer, fasting, zakah, pilgrimage, marriage, business transactions, permissible and impermissible foods, inheritance, criminal offenses, and jihad — covering all the major fiqh issues in a Muslim’s life. Jamal al-Din M. Zarabozo has translated this important work into English for the benefit of English-speaking Muslims and students of Islam. Continue reading →
“Do you not see how Allah sets forth a metaphor of a good word: a good tree whose roots are firm and whose branches are in the sky? It bears fruit all the time by its Lord’s permission. Allah sets forth metaphors for people so that hopefully they will pay heed.”(Surah Ibrahim 14:24-25)
Allah has likened the statement of faith, which is the best of statements, with a tree that is the best of trees bearing these noble characteristics. Its roots are firm, it is always growing and maturing and it bears fruit all the time, directing is numerous benefits and delectable fruits to its owner and others.
This tree varies greatly in the hearts of the believers, changing in accordance to the variation of the qualities that Allah has described it with. Therefore it is upon the servant to hasten towards acquiring knowledge about it, its descriptions, that which leads to its existence and potency, its roots and its branches. It is upon him to expend his efforts in actualizing this tree in terms of knowledge and action for indeed his portion of goodness and success, happiness in this life and the Hereafter, is dependant upon the extent to which this tree (is implanted in the heart).
