This is a message for every free thinking and broadminded human being. It is for every seeker of the truth who might have, once wondered, what the religion of Islam is all about. Who Allah is, what is the ultimate goal of man’s existence, or what happens after death, for these questions and many others are prompted at certain occasions, but brushed aside by various factors.

Islam is indeed a misunderstood and misrepresented religion in the West. <<This misconception is hardly surprising>>, remarks the French Dr. Maurice Bucaille, in his book, The Bible, The Qur’an and Science. <<When we consider the way so many generations are the West was instructed in the religious problems facing humanity and the ignorance in which they were kept about anything related to Islam>>. Hence Islamic ideals remain obscure from the vast majority of non-Muslims.

This booklet does not claim to answer all the questions you would like to be answered. However, this booklet will open before you a new dimension of thinking, and will enable you to realize the importance of your role as a human being in the universe, to help you understanding the relationship between you and your Creator.

God Almighty Allah. It presents Islam to you in a nutshell, and provides straightforward answers to many questions about Islam and credibility.

In this booklet, you will also be able to know Allah, the last of His Scriptures, the last of His Prophets and Messengers, what Islam is the role of man in this life and other related issues.

Lest one may think that there is an English version of the Qur’an, I would like to draw the reader’s attention to the fact that Arabic is the only language of the Qur’an. Although the Qur’anic quotations and Prophetic traditions cited in this booklet are preceded with <<Allah says>>, only the meaning of such quotations are quoted. Continue reading

Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick

By Abdullah Hakim Quick. Contrary to what the title suggests, this lecture is not a discussion about the onslaught of the western ideologies against the position of the Muslim woman. In actuality, this presentation is about the internal war. This lecture is about the war zone that is alive behind the closed doors of the Muslim homes. Is their a problem with our home relationships? Is their a problem in our marriages? Is their a problem with how our educational institutions are structured today? These and other important questions are analyzed, commented on, and answered in this empowering presentation. Continue reading

The Family Of Ibrahim (A.S)

Dr. Muhammad Mahmud Ghali
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 146 | Size: 8.5 MB

This book presents an attempt at showing the integral relationship between Ibrahim (as) and his Progeny, only three of whom, besides himself, have been called the Messenger of Resolve. As the father of the most eminent leaders of  humanity, Ibrahim (as) still occupies the singular position of being Khalil an outstanding bondman of Allah (SWT).  His life has shown a long history of search for truth. Abraham is the father of the great Messengers, Musa, Isa and Muhammad (PBUT). Those relationships should motivate Eastern and Western Ibrahim’s countries to co-operate for  adopting policies of Peace instead of going to war with each other. Today, we do seek for more earnest endeavor for peace, definitely more than we needed peace in final decades of the last century. Continue reading

Imam Anwar al Awlaki
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 67 | Size: 1 MB

[Thawaabit ‘Ala Darb Al Jihad] Constants In The Path Of Jihad is one of the best contemporary books on the subject of Jihad. It was written by Shaykh Yusuf al ‘Uyayree. Shaykh Yusuf had left at an early age to fight in Afghanistan against the Russians. People who knew him described him as a very intelligent individual who was well-versed in all of the weaponry in all fields and was able to train with them very well. Later, he returned to the Arabian Peninsula where he continued serving the Mujahideen in Sheeshan and fundraised for them. As time passed, he was arrested and put in jail for a few years. In jail he memorized al Bukhari and Muslim. When he came out, he wrote a few books; each one of them is a masterpiece. One can see the depth of his textual references to Qur’an and Sunnah as well as references to present day occurrences. Imam Anwar al Awlaki brings this book back to life in his lecture series on the book. Continue reading
