  • The life of the Prophet - Seerah An Nabawiya - Vol 1,2,3 & 4 - Ibn Kathir

    Ibn Kathir

    Paperback, 1948 pages [4 Volumes]
    6.75 x 9.9 inch
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    Compiled in the 14th century AD by a prominent Syrian scholar, the al-sira al-Nabawiyya of Ibn Kathir is a full examination in chronological order, of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Drawn from the earliest and most reliable Arabic sources, it offers, in this close English translation, the fullest available account of the historical circumstances and personalities most important in the founding of Islam. Ibn Kathir’s work offers a fine example of Islamic scholarship; the quotations and anecdotes that constitute its core are evaluated in terms of the trustworthiness of their sources. Variant wordings that are related through differing lines of transmission are noted, and Ibn Kathir gives both his own assessments and those of the earliest Islamic authorities concerning the likely authenticity of these records. The comments and conversations, derived from ancient texts, that are quoted in this work constitute the basis of our knowledge of Islam during the lifetime of its founder.

    Volume 1 (of this 4 volume series) relates the history of the Arab tribes who were the Prophet's forebears, the lives of his parents, and the accounts of unusual events surrounding his birth. It then goes on to relate anecdotes regarding his childhood, the signs of the Prophethood, and the first revelations.

    Volume 2 (of this 4 volume series) Looks at the early years of the Prophethood and includes such episodes at the Night Journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and the ascent to Heaven the Prophets marriages to Aisha(ra) and Sawda (ra) and the emigration to Madina. It gives details of events in the two years following the emigration, including the building of the Holy Mosques and various military expeditions and reveals how Islam as a faith developed.

    Volume 3 (of this 4 volume series) gives details of the numerous battles and campaigns waged between 3 (AH) and 8 AH to defend and spread the religion of Islam.

    Volume 4 (of this 4 volume series) continues with the events of 9 AH and 10AH and presents the different accounts of the hajjat al -wada ( the farewell pilgrimage) and the events surrounding the death of the Prophet Muhamad (saw)

  • Women & Equality

    Akmal Asghar

    Paperback, 24 Pages
    21 x 14.8 cm
    MaktabaIslamia Publications

    The treatment of women in any society has become, without doubt, a key marker in evaluating its progress. The accepted framework of the debate on women's rights has centred around the need for 'equality', to redress a historic imbalance that has empowered men considerably more than it has women, and to undermine patriarchy and societies modelled on its assumptions. It is without doubt that the perception, treatment and rights of women are now dramatically different to those of even the last century. But alongside the rapid changes that followed the 'domestic revolution', as some term it, a number of very key questions remain unanswered. While historical prejudices and assumptions may be slowly eroding in areas of opportunity, employment conditions, political rights, and marriage-particularly in the West-it would be difficult to argue that the debate on women's rights is now over. Many feminists and women's rights activists, while welcoming the changes of the last century, believe that there are many battles still to be fought, although they remain deeply divided on which battles they are.

    These unanswered questions not only relate to the rights of women, but to the impact that the successes of women's movements have had on society as a whole. Their progress has fuelled increasingly complex dilemmas on issues such as the rights of children, relationships with the opposite sex, and the escalation of previously rare social problems. They have exposed shortcomings in the accepted framework and in its very assumptions, illustrated by the bitter divisions that plague post-feminist movements. Critically, one must ask if the discussions in the West-promoted as a template and international standard-have addressed the core issues of the debate. If, however, they have overlooked them we are in need of a new perspective.

  • The social system in islam - Taqiuddin Nabahani

    Taqiuddin An-Nabhānī

    English Translation of the 3rd Edition, 2012
    Paperback, 202 Pages
    12 x 18 cm
    Dar Al Ilm Publishers

    At a time when secularist thinkers, jurists and rulers alike are strongly driving the Muslim youth, male and female, into free mixing in their social life: some Muslim thinkers and scholars have over reacted by calling for the complete seclusion of women and their prevention from taking any role outside of the home.

    In such times the full understanding of the social life in Islam, supported by the evidences from the Quran and sunnah becomes vital.

    This book relentlessly argues this issue throughout its 22 chapters
