  • Tafsir Ishraq Al-Ma'ani - A Quintessence of Quranic Commentaries- Vol I-IV - Surah 1-114

    Syed Iqbal Zaheer

    Paperback [8 Volumes], 4681 pages

    Iqra Welfare Trust

    With the revival of interest in Islam in our times, the Qur’an is also being read increasingly, especially by the intellectuals: Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

    However, and although its message and central theme have been stated in unambiguous terms, its translation most of the times fails to impart the same meaning with the same effect.

    Additionally, the Qur’an deals with every subject of human concern and gives guidelines for application to life and society. This increases its scope widely, and requires on the part of the reader's knowledge of various disciplines for proper appreciation of its message.It is specially important to know how the Qur’an was understood by those who received it first: Prophet Muhammad (SAW), on whom be Allah’s peace, and his immediate followers. Second in order of interest and importance would be to know how the scholars of Islam have understood it in every age. The present work spread across 4681 pages and 8 Volumes endeavours in the main to provide this information. However, it also presents useful notes, variant notes, variant opinions, anecdotes and legal points – from Quran commentaries old and new.

  • Al Ghazali's Theory on the Recitation and interpretation of the Quran

    Muhammad Abul Quasem

    Paperback, 121 pages 
    5.83 x 8.27 inch
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    This book is the first accurate English translation, with useful introduction and many valuable notes, of al-Ghazali’s Kitab Adab Tilawat al-Qu’ran, which is a part of his greatest work Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Deen (The Revival of the Religious Sciences). In the Introduction of this translation (pages 9-18) the subject of Qu’ran-reading is nicely initiated. In chapter I (pp. 19-33) the merits of Qu’ran- recitation are discussed. In chapters II & III (pp. 34-85) ten external etiquettes or praiseworthy manners and ten internal (mental) tasks of Quran-recitation are set forth.

    In chapter IV (pp. 86-104) the existence of deep, hidden meaning of the Qu’ran is proved as against the proponents of outward exegetes. The obstacles to the understanding of deep, hidden meanings of the Qu’ranic verses are pointed out. The Prophet’s prohibition of Qu’ran-explanation according to one’s personal opinion is discussed in detail in pp. 90-104. In this context the controversial problem of tafsir bi-l ray (interpretation of Qur'an acconding to valid personal opinion) is seriously considered and supported with proofs and evidences.The Arabic text translated here has been compared with eight other printed Arabic texts and then translated very carefully and accurately using free-flowing, modern English

  • Tafsir Ibn Abbas - Ibn Abbas

    Tafsir Ibn Abbas

    Paperback, 922 pages
    6.75 x 9.9 inch
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    Attributed variously to the Companion Abdullah Ibn Abbas (d. 68/687) and to Muhammad ibn Ya‘qub al-Firuzabadi (d. 817/1414), Tanwîr al-Miqbâs is one of the most pivotal works for understanding the environment which influenced the development of Qur’anic exegesis. Despite its uncertain authorship and its reliance on the controversial Isrâ’îliyyat or Israelite stories, Tanwîr al-Miqbâs nevertheless offers readers valuable insight into the circulation and exchange of popular ideas between Islam, Judaism and Christianity during the formative phase of Islamic exegesis.

  • Tafsir Al Tustari - Sahl Bin Abd Allah Al Tustari

    Sahl Bin Abd Allah Al Tustari

    Paperback, 474 pages
    6.75 x 9.9 inch
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    A collection of the long-unavailable tafasir, or commentaries on the Qur'an, which help to properly explain and contextualize the revelation, this series aims to make leading exegetical works—in translation, unabridged, and faithful to the letter and meaning of the Arabic—widely available for study and research. The earliest surviving Sufi commentary on the Qur'an, this record is not only one of the few authenticated works in Tustari's name but is also a key source for understanding the mystical thought and teachings of this important and influential Sufi. In addition to insights into the spiritual significance of almost 1,000 verses of the Qur'an, this commentary, presented in complete English translation for the first time, includes numerous references to traditions of the Prophet, explanations of the ethical and mystical dimensions of the religious life, stories of the prophets, and anecdotes about earlier mystics. Generously augmented with explanatory footnotes throughout, the book will provide readers with an invaluable introduction to the Sufi tradition of Qur'anic interpretation and acquaint them with spiritual doctrines fundamental to the later development of Sufism.

  • Fiqh Us Seerah - Mohammad Al Ghazali

    Muhammad Al Ghazali

    Paperback, 512 pages
    9,75 X 9.9 in
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    Many books have been written about the life of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). In writing this book, the author had a specific objective. He used the life of the Prophet (SAW) to go onto depth about the Prophet (SAW) many historians only touched on the various aspects of his life. This book goes into detail and provides reasons and explanations for whatever took place. It is a blend of modern analysis and ancient detail. Its objective is to nurture faith, purify characters and fan the struggle to embrace the truth and be faithful to it.

    Indeed, the life of the Prophet (SAW) has been documented as a message for practical implementation, not intellectual entertainment

    'You may think that you have studied the life of Muhammad by following his history from birth to death but this is a grave mistake. You will never really understand the Sirah unless you study the noble Qur'an and the purified Sunnah. The amount that you derive from these will tell the strength of your connection with the prophet of Islam, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam' From the Epilogue

    An important work of the Egyptian scholar Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali. Drawing upon his profound classical Islamic learning and extensive knowledge of modern science, Sheikh al-Ghazali has broken new ground in the study of Seerah, bringing to bear a fresh but wholly authentic approach. This is a work which all serious students should have, to complement the Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW)

    Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali was one of the most influential Islamic scholars of the twentieth century, both as an author and in the field of Da'wa. Born at Buhayra, Egypt in 1335/1917, he received his schooling at the Alexandria Religious Institute before entering the Faculty of Usul al-Din at the University of al-Azhar.

    In 1362/1943, al-Ghazali was appointed Imam and lecturer at al-Makataba al-Khadra in Cairo. He later became a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a close associate of Sheikh Hasan Al-Banna. During the early 1950s, he worked for the Islamic Movement in various capacities. Subsequently, his work for Islam extended over many parts of Africa, Asia. Europe and America as well as the Arab countries.

    Between 1391/1971 and 1410/1989, Sheikh al-Ghazali rose through the ranks of the Egyptian Ministry of Awqaf, to become Undersecretary for Islamic Da'wa, His academic career included spells of teaching at the universities of Umm al-Qura (Makka) and Qatar: and he served as a Chairman of the Academic Council first of al-Amir 'Abd al-Qadir University, at Constantine, Algeria, and later of the international institute of Islamic Thought at Cairo

    Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali published over sixty books, several of which have been published in translation. Probably the most important is 'Journey through the Qur'an' (al-Tafsir al-mawdu' li-suwar al-Quran al Karim). He received many awards in recognition of his contribution to learning and Da'wa. He died in 1416/1996 while attending a conference in Saudi Arabia. Rahimahu 'Llah.
