  • Characteristics of the Hypocrites By Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (d. 751H) Hypocrisy is a deep rooted and all-pervading spiritual disease. A person’s heart could be overflowing with it yet be oblivious of it due to its hidden and subtle nature; frequently does it lead a person to think they are acting rightly when in reality he is spreading corruption. It is of two types: major and minor; majority hypocrisy leads to eternal punishment in the lowest depths of Hell; it is to outwardly display faith in Allah, His Angles, His Books, His Messengers, and the last Day whereas inwardly one is devoid of such belief, indeed disbelieving in it. They do not believe that Allah spoke to a man amongst men who He appointed to be Messenger: guiding them by His permission and warning them of His punishments. In the Qur’an, Allah has revealed the intrigues of the hypocrites, He has unveiled their belief, their qualities, and made their goals clear so that the believers can be aware of them. He divided mankind into three groups in the beginning of Surah al-Baqarah: the believer, the disbeliever, and hypocrite. He mentioned four verses concerning the believers, two concerning the disbelievers, and thirteen verses concerning the hypocrites, due to their plenitude and the great harm and tribulation they bring to Islam and the Muslims. The harm they cause to Islam is truly sever for they claim to be Muslims, they claim to aid and support Islam, whereas in reality they are its enemies seeking to destroy it from within, covertly spreading their corruption and ignorance such that the unwary thinks that what they are upon is knowledge and right action. By Allah! How many strongholds of Islam have they destroyed; how many fortress have they rendered to ruin; how many signposts of Islam have they effected; how many raised flags have they lowered; and how many seeds of doubt have they attempted to sow in order to uproot the religion! The author, Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (d. 751H), was one of the most prolific scholars of Islam. He studied under Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah for sixteen years and accompanied him up and till his death; learning a great deal of knowledge from him. He authored over sixty works, covering a multitude of Islamic sciences; his writings are characterised by their touching address to the heart and soul. He was deeply religious and very pious.

  • Each person is born into a religious environment that is not of his or her own choice; a child is raised in the religion or ideology of his or her family, society or culture. Even as a newborn, he or she is assigned the religion of his family or the ideology of the state; in some countries the child's assigned religion is even recorded on his or her birth certificate. By the time individuals reach their teens they usually have accepted the beliefs of their parents or that of their particular society, feeling that they have little choice in the matter. However, individuals often encounter or are exposed to various beliefs and ideologies throughout the course of their lives leading many to question long-held beliefs, traditions or philosophical ideas. They begin to question the validity of their.own beliefs. Seekers of truth often reach a point of confusion upon realizing that believers of every religion, sect, ideology and philosophy all claim to have the one and only truth. 15x21 Cm 232 pgs HB Learn More

  • Bukhari records on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said, "Your actions alone will not save any of you." They asked, Messenger of Allah, not even you?, He replied, 'Not even me, unless, Allah were to envelop me in His mercy. Be firm; steadfast and balanced; and journey [to Allah] in the beginning of the day, the end of the day, and a portion of the latter part of the night. Moderation, moderation! Through this you will attain your goal!". He also recorded this Hadith in another place with the wording, 'This religion is easy, none makes it hard upon himself except that it overwhelms him; therefore be firm, steadfast, and balanced; upon which have glad tidings! Seek help in this by journeying [to Allah] at the beginning of the day, at the end of the day, and a portion of the latter part of night.' He also records on the authority of Aishah that the Prophet said, Be firm, steadfast, and balanced upon which have glad tidings for indeed actions alone will not cause one to enter Paradise. They asked Messenger of Allah, not even you? He replied, Not even me, unless Allah were to envelop me in His forgiveness and mercy. He also records on her authority that the Prophet said, Be Firm, steadfast and balanced: know that your actions alone will not be a cause for your entry into Paradise and that the most beloved actions to Allah are those that are done continuously and persistently, even if they be few. These noble ahadith details a great and important principle from which stem many issues related to the journey to Allah while wayfaring along His Path. Some of the Salaf said, 'The Hereafter consists either of Allah's forgiveness or the Fire; and this world is either a source of Allah's protection or a source of destruction.' On his deathbed, Muhammad ibn Waasi bid farewell to his companions saying, 'Peace be upon you, either to the Fire or to the forgiveness of Allah.' 15x21CM 109 PAGES PB Learn More
  • This is a treatise we have written concerning humility (Khushu) and the hearts meakness and breaking (inkisar) before the Lord. The basic meaning of Khushu, is the softness of the heart, its being gentle, still, submissive, broken, and yearning. When the heart is humble, so too is the hearing, seeing, head, and face; indeed all the limbs and their actions are humbled, even speech. This is why the Prophet would say in his bowing (ruku), 'My hearing, sigh, bones, and marrow are humbled to You,' another narration has, 'and whatever my foot carries. One of the Salaf saw a man fidgeting in his prayer and remarked, 'If the heart of this person was humble, so too would his limbs be.' The source of Khushu, that takes place in the heart is the gnosis of Allah's greatness, magnificence, and perfection. The more gnosis a person has of Allah, the more Khushu he has. The greatest action of worship which manifests the Khushu, of the body to Allah is the prayer (salah). Allah has praised those who have Khushu, in the prayer. al-Hasan, may Allah have mercy on him, said, 'When you stand in prayer, stand in due obedience as Allah has ordered you, beware of negligence and looking (here and there), beware that Allah be looking at you while you are looking at something else, asking Allah for Paradise and taking refuge with Him from the Fire, yet your heart is heedless, not knowing what the tongue is saying. Hudhayfah said, 'The first thing you will lose of your religion will be Khushu and the last thing you will lose of your religion will be the prayer, and it is well possible that there is no good in a person who prays, and soon will come a time when you shall entre a large Masjid and not see a single person with Khushu. This small treatise deals with the correct and accurate meaning of Khushu, and with three extremely beneficial appendixes. 15x21 Cm 93 PAGES PB Learn More
  • A common misunderstanding which deters people from practising Islam is the idea that Islamic Teachings are difficult to practise. Alongside this, there are many opportunities a person comes across on a daily basis to amass reward for the Hereafter, but which one missed due to lack of knowledge. 18.8 cm x 12.7 cm 160 PAGES PB Learn More
  • Zakat, an obligatory almsgiving, is one of the five pillars of Islam. The importance of this Islamic obligation is highlighted by the fact that it is directly linked to the ritual prayer (ṣalāt) by Allah in the Qur’an on thirty-two occasions. Tragically, it has become something of a fallen pillar amongst Muslims today. This treatise elucidates the evidences for its importance and warnings about its negligence from the Qur’an and Sunnah. Moreover, the essential legal rulings―such as who must pay, on what, how, when and to whom― are explained clearly and comprehensively, so that even a reader with no great background in Islamic law will understand the instructions. Finally, it also contains the correct etiquette that should be observed by both the one paying the zakat and the one receiving it. Shaykh Hishām Burhānī (1932-2014) was a Syrian scholar, who was an expert in the Hanafi legal school, as well as a spiritual guide (murshid) in the Shādhilī order. He was raised in the company of leading scholars, in particular his father Shaykh Muḥammad Saʿīd Burhānī, and went on to be a lecturer in the Faculty of Shariah at the University of Damascus, where he taught Islamic law (fiqh), its fundamental principles (uṣūl al-fiqh) and Qur’anic exegesis (tafsīr).While living in the United Arab Emirates in the 1980s, he represented the UAE in various roles at the Islamic Jurisprudence Council in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.He authored on various subjects, including uṣūl al-fiqh, recitation of the Qur’an (tajwīd) and a series of booklets on personal worship (one of which forms the basis of the present translation on zakat). 63pgs Soft Back Learn More
