  • Al-Ghazali on Intention, Sincerity & Truthfulness is the thirty-seventh chapter of the Revival of the Religious Sciences. It falls in the section dealing with the virtues. Here Ghazali deals with the very important subject of intention, which is of crucial importance in Islam. He asks: ‘How can someone ignorant of the meaning of intention verify his own intention; or how can someone ignorant of the meaning of sincerity verify his own sincerity; or how can someone sincerely claim truthfulness if he has not verified its meaning?’ In the Book of Intention, Sincerity & Truthfulness, Ghazali gives a response to each of these questions by expounding the reality and levels of intention, sincerity and truthfulness, those acts which affirm them and those acts which mar them. As in all his writings, Ghazali bases his arguments on the Qur’an, the example of the Prophet and the sayings of numerous scholars and Sufis. Dr Anthony Shaker holds a PhD in Islamic Studies from McGill University and is the author of Thinking in the Language of Reality: Sadr al-Din Qunawi and the Philosophy of Reason. He writes on the philosophical traditions of Islam, contemporary developments around the world, and is a professional consultant and researcher. 234 x 156mm 112 PAGES SOFT COVER Learn More
  • The spiritual life in Islam begins with riyadat al-nafs, the inner warfare against the ego. Distracted and polluted by worldliness, the lower self has a tendency to drag the human creature down into arrogance and vice. Only by a powerful effort of will can the sincere worshipper achieve the purity of soul which enables him to attain God’s proximity. This translation of two chapters from The Revival of the Religious Sciences details the sophisticated spiritual techniques adopted by classical Islam. In the first step, On Disciplining the Soul, which cites copious anecdotes from the Islamic scriptures and biographies of the saints, Ghazali explains how to acquire good character traits, and goes on to describe how the sickness of the heart may be cured. In the second part, Breaking the Two Desires, he focusses on the question of gluttony and sexual desire, concluding, in the words of the Prophet, that ‘the best of all matters is the middle way’. The translator has added an introduction and notes which explore Ghazali’s ability to make use of Greek as well as Islamic ethics. The work will prove of special interest to those interested in Sufi mysticism, comparative ethics, and the question of sexuality in Islam. T. J. Winter is Shaykh Zayed Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Cambridge. 234 x 156mm 370 PAGES SOFT COVER Learn More
  • In this age of materialism, consumerism and extreme liberalism, the Muslim often finds himself at a loss, at odds to the ebb and flow of society, and holding ot values, divinely revealed, that contrast starkly with the values held by many around him . He or she is looked at askance, accused of being backward, non-conformist and refusing ot intergrate. In the face of peer pressure, the resolve of some may weaken, the result being a watering-down of one's adherence to Islam and the values it calls to. This book is a compilation of two tracts which explain the hadith, ''Islam began as something strange and it will return to being strange just as it began, sotuba for the strangers!''It is hoped that it will be a source of comfort and inspiration for the Muslim who is striving to follow Islam at a time when the Muslim could well feel alienated and alone in the world. 15x21cm 144 PAGES PB Learn More
  • In this notable work, the renowned author provides essential detail in discussing key points dealing with differences that arise between the People of Sunnah, and the manners and etiquette one should acquire when differing occurs. He beautifully illustrates the difference between advising that is encouraged, and shaming that is not permitted - two topics that often become tangled and misunderstood. The author thus explains the characteristics of sincere advice and censure with a depth of clarity that will no doubt bring benefit to all, particularly those involved in active da'wah. This work also lays down some guiding principles when preparing criticisms and refutations. It makes clear that such ideal precepts apply to People of Sunnah; and as far as the People of Innovation and desires are concerned, then these principles do not apply to them. This is because the former group is recognised for following the truth, being merciful to the creation and desiring for them guidance, reform and all kinds of goodness. They never intend any harm, but rather make falsehood known by stemming ignorance through reasoning and dialogue in clarifying the truth - they enjoin the good and forbid the evil and strive in making the Word of allah uppermost. Dr. Salih ibn Sa`d al-Suhaymi provides beneficial commentary for the important points covered in this book, bringing greater relevancy to our modern context 15x21CM 96 PAGES PB Learn More

  • Know that all the facets of mankind's disposition are for their benefit - either directly such as the desire for food, or indirectly by preventing harm, such as the capacity for anger. However, when these natural impulses are not moderated it culminates in harm. If the desire for food is excessive it leads to gluttony. Similarly when anger is uncontrolled it leads to transgression. The aim should be to achieve equilibrium of the soul, to allow the faithful to approach God without distraction. The author addresses many spiritual diseases - such as envy, greed, uncontrolled lust, sexual desire, arrogance, gluttony, anger, stinginess, extravagance, vanity and attachment to this world. He also discusses the qualities that the seeker of God must acquire - such as love, self discipline, humility, self- criticism, improvement of character, patience and truthfulness. In a simple yet effective way he shows the wayfarers how to cure their spiritual diseases and acquire the necessary qualities for their journey to Allah. This masterpiece has been divided into thirty chapters to facilitate the reader's comprehension. Important points are highlighted using anecdotes from the early righteous predecessors. 15x21 cm 112 PAGES PB Learn More
  • Sincere Counsel To The Students of Sacred Knowledge By : Ibn al-Jawzi (D.597 AH) '' Sincere Counsel to the Students of Sacred Knowledge '' by Shaikh ibn al-Jawzi The challenges of parenthood are experienced by all and many times a parent is hard put to ascertain the correct course of action in bringing up a child in the correct Islamic manner or when required, disciplining that child. 15x21cm 160 PAGES PB Learn More
  • Awaking From the Sleep of the Heedlessness BY Ibn al-Jawzi There are those who submit to Allah,s order and achieve success. Others are wasteful of time and thereby loss and regret. Whoever lives his life in accordance with Allah,s commands, will be rewarded handsomely with multiplied profits beyond imagination. The corrupt one who acts contrarily to Divine Pleasure will be destroyed. This fourth masterpiece in the series expounds on the five stages of life: the first stage of encouraging and disciplining; the second stage of youthfulness, protecting the self and struggling against desires; the third of maturity; the fourth stage of old age; the fifth stage of decrepitude. The onset of these periods may vary slightly from person to person. Nonetheless these five stages are true. This is truly a work of genius. 14x21CM 64 PAGES PB Learn More
