A brief book on the two Holy Mosques in Saudi Arabia, the Holy Mosque in Makkah is the most revered place of worship for Muslims around the world. At the center of the Mosque is the Ka’aba, which literally means ‘cube’ in Arabic. All Muslims are required to face in the direction of the Ka’aba five times every day when offering their prayers. The Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah is the second most revered place of worship for Muslims around the world. Millions of Muslims visit the Mosque each year, to worship, to visit the Prophet’s grave, and to see the city that gave birth to Islam. Continue reading

The Miracles Of The Qur’an

Shaykh Muhammad Mitwalli ash-Sha’rawi

For Muslims, the Holy Qur’an is an inexhaustible and hauntingly beautiful source of guidance, consolation and enlightenment. Above all, it is the very Word of God as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and protected for all time against falsification. Muslims’ absolute certainty on this point is often difficult for others to comprehend, however majestic and eloquent the text, even in translation.

Shaykh ash-Sharawi, a distinguished contemporary scholar from Egypt, has written a book designed to be read by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. In plain and wholly logical language, ash-Sharawi presents objective and well documented evidence of the miraculous nature of the Qur’an.

The Miracles of the Qur’an, now presented in a fluent English translation, is divided into three parts. Part 1 discusses the nature of miracles and examines those linguistic and rhetorical characteristics of the Holy Qur’an which Muslims believe – and history had shown to be inimitable by man. In parts 2 and 3 the author demonstrates, by profound analysis of numerous passages from the text, that the Qur’an contains irrefutable proof of its direct Revelation from Allah, the Omniscient Creator.

This authoritative and highly readable book is essential reading for anyone concerned in understanding the nature if the Holy Scripture of Islam. Continue reading

What Was The Sign Of Jonah

Over a thousand million Christians today blindly accept that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ. They produce “a thousand and one” prophecies from the Jewish Bible (the Old Testament) to prove their claim that Jesus was the Messiah promised to the Jews. Let us hold the thousand” prophecies in abeyance for a moment and examine the only unequivocal claim made by Jesus in the Gospels and examine whether he fulfilled his promise to the Jews.

We must admit that the word CHRIST is not a name. It is a title. It is a translation of the Hebrew word Messiah, meaning “anointed.” The Greek word for “anointed” is Christos from which we get the word Christ.

Priests and kings were “anointed” when being consecrated to their office. The Holy Bible confers this title even on a heathen king CYRUS (Isaiah 45:1). We are reminded in the Gospel of St.Luke that “WHEN EIGHT DAYS WERE ACCOMPLISHED FOR THE CIRCUMCISING OF THE CHILD, HIS NAME WAS CALLED JESUS, WHICH WAS SO NAMED OF THE ANGEL BEFORE HE WAS CONCEIVED IN THE WOMB.” (Luke 2:21). The name that was given to Mary for her yet unborn son was JESUS and NOT Christ. It was only after his baptism at the hands of John the Baptist that he, Jesus, claimed to be the Christ. The Jews were not the ones to accept his claim on its face value. They wanted proof! Continue reading

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “He who tells a lie on me intentionally, let him take his seat in the  Hellfire” (Bukhari volume 1, No. 107). Whenever a person quotes a fabricated hadith knowingly, he or she is guilty  of lying on the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Fabricated ahadith stunt the spiritual growth of the  Muslim Ummah. This book is a compilation and refutation of one hundred of the most famous and lethal fabricated  ahadith in the Muslim world today.

Shaikh Abdullah Faisal was born in 1963 and raised in Jamaica. He embraced Islam  at the age of 16. He studied Arabic and Islamic studies for one year in Guyana, South America and then went on for further studies at the Imam Muhammad Ibn Saud University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, There, he studied for eight years and graduated in 1991. Among his Shaikhs are: Abdul-Hakim Quick, Abdullah Tuwayjiree, Abdul-Wahab Tarairi, Shaikh Ibn Jibreen and Naasir Umar. Continue reading

[Ulum Al Qur’an] An Introduction To The Sciences Of The Qur’an

The Qur’an contains the revelations of Allah, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, to mankind. It is the message from God to man and therefore of utmost importance to us. To properly grasp a message, one needs first of all to understand its contents exactly, and for this purpose one must study the Qur’an deeply and in detail. In fact, some people do spend their whole lives studying the Qur’an, reading and reflecting upon it and, as they grow and develop, both physically and spiritually, they discover for themselves new meanings and implications. Secondly, some special knowledge of the circumstances that surround the message is also necessary for fuller understanding of its meaning and implications. Although some part of this special knowledge can be derived from the Qur’an itself, there remain other areas of knowledge that can only be discovered by wider study and research. Muslims have from earliest times, applied themselves not only to the message from Allah the Qur’an but also to its setting and framework, and the preoccupation with these ultimately developed into the ‘sciences’ of or ‘knowledge’ about the Qur’an, known as “ulum al-qur’an’. The contents of this book are an Introduction to the Sciences of Quran.  This concise book deals with traditional Quaranic subjects such as the meaning of revelation, history and transmission of Quaranic text, asbab al-nuzul, exegesis, etc. Ulum al-Qur’an also contains issues of more recent origin, for instance the recording of the Qur’an and orientalists’ views regarding the Quran. The concluding chapter of this literature contains valuable practical advice for reading and studying the Holy Book of Islam. Continue reading
