The Middle East today stands at an epoch. The artificial architecture created by the British and French is tearing apart at the seams and no amount of stitching can keep it together. The Muslim rulers, who have long played the role of maintaining the artificial architecture in the Middle East, have lost their most potent weapon; fear. This was their only method of maintaining Sykes-Picot as well as themselves in power. Looking forward there are huge unprecedented demographic, economic, political, social, technological and geopolitical trends taking shape that will subsume everything standing in its way and sweep away those who try to maintain the status quo.
In order to understand the present, the past needs to be evaluated. The actions, intrigues, plots and plans of the past have come to shape the Middle East today and understanding them will give us a better idea of the current situation of the region. To comprehend the Middle East of the future, an accurate assessment of the region today is necessary in order to place the emerging trends in their correct context.
This book looks to provide answers to a number of questions. How did the Muslims, led by the Ottomans, go from a global power to the sick man of Europe? Was the Sykes-Picot agreement a folly by the French and British empires and poor strategic planning? Or part of a carefully constructed plan to divide the Muslim world in order to control it? Does the Arab spring confirm the end of Sykes-Picot and a new dawn for the people of the region? What are the most important emerging trends going forward? What do these mean for the region and beyond? What myths exist of the region which are simply untrue and upon closer scrutiny, do not stack up to the facts?

The concept of As-Sababiyah (causality) is from the fundamental concepts of the Muslims and which must remain clear to them. That is because their message in life is a message of action and because they live in the life for the sake of a specific objective.
As-Sababiyah is from the Islamic concepts that connects to the Muslim’s daily conduct in the case where the accomplishment of an action from amongst his daily actions does not occur without observing this Qaa’idah (principle), the Qaa’idah of As-Sababiyah.
When the early Muslims from the era of the Sahaabah, the Taabi’een, the aabi’ee At-Taabi’een and those who followed from the generation of Nahdah (revival) comprehended the concept of As-Sababiyah, when they comprehended it completely and understood it in a sound and crystallised manner, and practised their understanding in their behaviours and conducts they accomplished actions that resembled miracles if we were to compare them to our current time.
That is because they carried Islaam, spread its Da’wah and opened up lands across the corners of the earth in the fasted time that history has known for a nation from amongst its nations that have passed. That was at a time when the means of communication and transportation were the camel in the best of circumstances.Learn More$7.00

The spectacular advances in science and technology that have occurred over the last century have led some to believe that only Western Capitalism can produce material progress.
Does religion hinder man's progress in life? Is there a contradiction between Islam and science? Why are the countries of the Islamic world so technologically backward? Is Islam capable of addressing man's diverse problem in the 21st century?
This book tackles these questions by exploring the relationship between Islam and science, by examining how science bloomed under Islam while Europe struggled in the Dark Ages and by illustrating a distinct vision for future scientific and technological advancement under the Islamic State.$5.00

Dar Ul Thaqafah
In the hierarchy of Islamic faith and religious duties zakat is next only to the acclamation of Allah's unity and prophecy of Muhamnad (peace be unto him) and the five daily prayers. It is rather significant that a measure of far reaching economic consequences should find such a high place in that hierarchy and be counted as one of the five pillars o Islam. Zakat is doubly important in the way of life that is Islam. On the one hand it is a means of spiritual purification and on the other a way to regain balance and equilibrium in social and economic life. One would expect religious scholars as well as economists not to miss these points and pay due attention to this unique institution. However, the subject of zakat did not attract the attention of contemporary scholars to an extent commensurate with its importance. There is a need for economists, legal experts and shariah scholars who would elaborate and analyze the law of zakat in a contemporary manner.
Sheikh Yusuf al Qardawi's book is one of those exceptions to the above which give one the needed hope and reassurance to carry on. First published more than 3 decades ago, Fiqh al Zakat still remains unparalleled in its comprehensiveness exposition and depth. It is, therefore, with great pleasure that we present it to the English reading public.
Shaykh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi Born in Egypt 1926. One of the most prominent scholars of the 20th century. He memorized the Quran before the age of 10. He is an expert on principals of Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh), Arabic language, and other Islamic Sciences. He has published over 100 books, which are bestsellers in the Islamic world.
His books cover various topics, such as: Fiqh, how to understand the Sunnah, how to understand the Qur’an, a two volume book on Zakat which is considered by many scholars as a treasure house for the Islamic library, environment, Fiqh of Minorities, poetry, and many other topics.
Shaykh Al-Qaradawi represents an original effort to make the comprehensive rules of Islam accessible and understandable to non-specialists, and he always tries to join between the principles of the religion and the problems facing the Muslims today.Learn More

The Muslim Ummah have been living without the Khilafah (Islamic State) for over seven decades, plagued on the one hand by the domination of the colonialist Western nations, and on the other hand, afflicted by the infiltration of ideas alien to Islam - such as secularism, nationalism and individualism - into the minds of the Ummah.
In the place of the Systems of Islam, which were implemented under the banner of a unified Khilafah State for more than 1300 years, giving justice and security to all that lived under it, the world is once again dominated by corruption, poverty and disorder.
This book outlines the Systems of Islam - Ruling, Economic, Social, Education and Judicial, and presents them not as a series of individual academic studies, but as an integrated whole, showing how each system complements the others, how they apply directly in our lifes affairs, and how we should work to bring them back into the world arena.Learn More$10.00

Crime, Poverty, Social deterioration, Political corruption, Racism and Apathy; These words evoke an all too familiar vision that characterizes our homes, our communities, our countries, and the world at large. Philosophers, Sociologists, Politicians, and ordinary citizens have aspired to devise viable solutions to these modern ailments; however, contradictory to the desired outcome of these efforts, the magnitude of the problems is rapidly increasing.
As testimony to this fact stand the volumes of statistics generated weekly by the agencies monitoring the world situation. Every solution implemented by the current world order only breeds more problems, and the existing problems continue to grow with each passing year. The persistent inadequacy of the West in dealing with these issues raises questions as to the source of its failure. Any viable solution to these problems must consist of both, the correct idea, as well as the mechanism and the resources to implement that idea. Therefore, the failure of the West could either stem from a lack of resources, or be deeply rooted in the ideas upon which Western Civilization is built, Capitalism and Secularism. As demonstrated by the numerous social and economic programs already implemented, which have mobilized an enormous amount of manpower and wealth, one can clearly see that the resources are not in scarcity. Consequently, the problems in the Western societies must emanate from the secular, capitalist mentality upon which the deployment of the resources is based. This failure of Capitalism is well recognized; however, the paradigm of the Capitalist ideology is deeply rooted in the society and has yet to be broken.
Thus, today, the societies of the world find themselves at a crossroads. Humanity can either continue to tread down the road of failure, marching to the tune of Capitalism and Secularism, or it can search for a new path, a new ideology to direct its thinking and its efforts. Surely, the World is in need of a new and correct ideology, and it is with this vision that it must evaluate Islam.$5.00

Since the events of 9/11 and 7/7, Islam and Muslims have increasingly been on the receiving end of a barrage of criticism. Many of the Islamic thoughts and practices have come under unprecedented attack under the banner of Freedom. The caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) and the banning of the Hijab in France are just two examples of the attempts of western secular countries to actively malign Islam. This attack on Islam and Muslims is however not restricted to certain Islamic thoughts and practices. Rather the whole concept of Shari'ah, the Islamic legal System, is ferociously attacked. The media portrayal of life under Shari'ah where beating of women, beheadings and lashings are everyday occurrences, are now all too familiar images.
Since the demise of Islam at a state level, the Shari'ah has ceased to be the basis of legislation in the Muslim world. What remains of the Shari'ah in the Muslim world is only a few scattered laws that are applied haphazardly. This has erroneously given the impression of the unsuitability of Shar'iah in the 21st century to deal with new issues and to solve modern, day-to-day problems.
This booklet will explore and contrast some of the problems of the 21st century and compare the manner in which secularism and Islam attempt to solve them. This booklet will look at how the Shari'ah texts are capable of dealing with any issue, be they social, economic or international. The book will scrutinise the applicability of the shari'ah in the 21st century through looking at a variety of 21st century issues. A comparison will be made between the Shari'ah approach to tackling issues and the secular methodology and its effects.Learn More$4.00

This excellent book is translated from the original Arabic book ‘Alfikr Al Islami’ by Sheikh Muhammad ibn Muhammad Ismael Abduh, an Islamic jurist, ‘alim, writer from Azhar, Egypt.
The Cultural Invasion of the Muslim Lands by the West has befogged the minds of the Muslims and turned them away from the Islamic Culture (Thaqaafah Al Islamiyyah). The West ensured that its civilization (hadhaarah) was spread all over the Muslim lands in the form of laws, concepts and authority. This was due to the decline in the authority of Islam, and the deviation of the good task from its course and because of the misleading propaganda that waged its campaign against Islam and its culture.
As the Ummah now realizes the Western plan and wakes up to revive itself and free itself from the tangles of the Western Civilization, this book comes handy in explaining many of the important issues related to Islam being an ideology.
The author, Muhammad ibn Muhammad Ismael Abduh painstakingly goes through several subjects including the subject of Maslaha and where does it lie, the method of thinking, The Penal code in Islam, Political awareness in over 36 chapters in this 150 page book. A must read for every one who is concerned about the Muslim Ummah and Dawa Carriers working for bringing revival in the Ummah.Learn More$7.00

Ibn al-‘Awwām’s Kitāb al-filāḥa is, without doubt, the most comprehensive agricultural treatise in Arabic. He gathers all the knowledge of his time concerning agriculture, horticulture and animal husbandry into a huge compendium of excerpts from all the previous agronomical traditions and treatises. From 112 named authors (Ibn al-‘Awwām, Banqueri 1802, I, pp. 61-2) he includes one thousand nine hundred direct and indirect citations – 615 or 32.5% from Byzantine sources, especially from Cassianus Bassus, 585 or 31% from Near Eastern sources, 85% of which are from Ibn Waḥshīya, and 690 citations or 36.5 % from earlier Andalusi agronomists (Glick 2005, pp. 12-13). To these he often adds his own observations and experiences, about which he says: “As for my own contribution, I put forward nothing that I have not first proved by experiment on repeated occasions” (Ibn al-‘Awwām, Clément-Mullet 1866, I, p. 9). He records, for example, his experiments in grafting the wild olive of the mountains with the domesticated olive of the plain, and his successful cultivation of saffron, under irrigation, in the mountains.Learn More
Ibn al-‘Awwām’s treatise comprises 34 chapters dealing with all aspects of husbandry – it mentions 585 different plants, explains the cultivation of more than 50 fruit trees, and includes many valuable observations on soils, manures, grafting, and plant diseases (Sarton 1927-48, II, pp. 424-25). Ibn al-‘Awwām also includes an agricultural calendar, one of the few Andalusi agronomists to do so. The last section of his work is devoted to animal husbandry, with chapters on cattle, sheep, goats, camels, horses, mules and donkeys, geese, ducks, chickens, pigeons, peacocks and beekeeping. As well as being of great value and interest for the study of agricultural history, the Kitāb al-filāḥa has enabled scholars to reconstruct the original texts of some previous authors whose work has only survived in abridged or fragmented form. In addition, the profusion of references, even though sometimes entangled and difficult to unravel, provides the historian with a wealth of information on the transmission of knowledge. It also presents a unique survey of the agricultural geography of Al-Andalus in the late 12th century, at least in regard to its interior arable land and the valley of the Guadalquivir river.$19.99

The da’wah carrier, who is working for change, will have to tackle those who want to maintain the status quo and those who stand against real change. The da’wah carrier will have to deal with those who possess power (Nussra) i.e. those who possess the physical capability to remove the ruler(s), who in the Muslim world like much of the world are the armed forces. For the da’wah carrier, the methodology for change includes the stage of taking power and overcoming the obstacles that stand in the way of real change. As a result, making sense of coups, which is the most common form of irregular leadership change, is essential for working for real change in the 21st century.
The author has mainly relied mainly on an original dataset of coup attempts around the world between 1945 and 2005, by Professor Naunial Singh, professor of international security studies at the Air War College, Alabama, USA. He conducted an empirical evaluation of all 471 coup attempts over this 60 year period drawing on numerous interviews with retired military personnel and over 300 hours of interviews specifically with coup participants in Ghana.Learn More$13.00

In order for the Islamic Ummah to progress in any manner we must throw off the shackles of Western culture. There is a great temptation to take on the label of “reactionary” that the West has assigned us. We may merely reject anything and everything that is modern and new and attribute it to Western culture. It is essential that we learn to identify those elements of Western culture that are foreign to our belief. This is not solely because they are pernicious, but purely because they are foreign.
It is as simple as that. Rasool-Allah (saw) said - “that which is not in accordance with our matter, is rejected”.
However, there are many elements of modern life that are just of the normal sedentary items with no relation whatsoever to Western belief and culture. These on the other hand should not necessarily be rejected rashly. The key exercise now is accurately identifying the dangers of Western culture. In addition we should know and understand the alternatives from Islam. Lastly, it would help to also point out the oppressive nature of Western popular culture. It is a destructive force as far as we are concerned, as Muslims. Also, as humans and as inhabitants of the world, we should know that Western culture benefits no one, save a tiny minority. This minority hold self-preservation as their creed.
We should be in a position, primarily, to be equipped with the battle armoury of the correct Islamic culture. We should be in a position, also, to identify that which contradicts our culture. We should be in a position that enables us to deconstruct and refute the fundamentals of Western culture. In this day and age it is a duty, on us as individuals and on us as an Ummah to recognise, reject, and replace Western influences in our lives.Learn More$9.00

This book focuses on the origins of nationalism in the Muslim world. Nationalism did not arise in the Muslim world naturally, nor did it came about in response to any hardships faced by the people, nor due to the frustration they felt when Europe started to dominate the world after the industrial revolution. Rather, nationalism was implanted in the minds of the Muslims through a well thought out scheme by the European powers, after their failure to destroy the Islamic State by force.
The book also presents the Islamic verdict on nationalism and practical steps that can be taken to eradicate the disease of nationalism from the Muslim Ummah so as to restore it back to its former glory.Learn More$3.00

Although science is common and not particular to a view of life, its products and its applications, are to be used according to the Ahkam Shari‘ah. That which is allowed from Shari‘ah can be taken and used, and that which is prohibited is to be left out. This is the way that we should view and deal with all things that are the products of science.
It is based on this that we have dealt with the subjects in this booklet. We have measured it with the shari‘i texts, and tried to the best of our ability in this regard. Based on the text, we have made it clear what can be taken and what should be avoided regardless of the benefit and harm. This is because true benefit is that which the Wise Legislator considers beneficial. That which is not considered beneficial by the Legislator should be left out. It is prohibited to take it because taking it is in contradiction with the shari‘i rule and whoever does it is sinful.
Based on this, we have looked at the issues of cloning, organ donation, abortion, test-tube babies, life-support systems, and the issue of life and death.Learn More$6.00

Human being is distinct in the process of connecting the sensation with previous information to produce a new thought.
Thinking in this method is universal, like the processes of eating and walking. However, because human beings adopt different Aqaid (beliefs) and the adoption of any Aqeedah builds a person intellectually in a specific format. Then the Aqeedah serves as the intellectual framework that defines the outlook towards life as well as the reference and foundation upon which the person builds all other thoughts.
Thus, the Aqeedah by its nature mandates a distinct way of thinking. Once the Islamic Aqeedah is adopted in a correct intellectual manner based upon sound intellectual thinking and not based on imitation of ancestors, blind faith, instinctive emotions, or benefit will undoubtedly change the individual into an intellectual ideological person. Then the individual will start to think in a distinct method with a distinct style and inclination. And this distinct thinking will manifest in a distinct pattern of behavior.
This book is perhaps among the only few books that help people to think in an Islamic way while explaining the wrong and incorrect ways of thinking with examples.

- Wishful thinning

In the past 2 centuries many Islamic groups and political parties were established with the aim of calling towards Islam. They all claimed to be following the Messenger of Allah (saw), his Seerah and his Sunnah whilst at the same time each of them would bring an evidence in an attempt to prove the validity of the particular direction and view that they had adopted, whether this was an incident that happened, and action that the Messenger (saw) undertook, a Hadith that he spoke or a matter that he was silent over.
This book is aimed at clarifying and setting the path for the Islamic groups and political parties, it is aimed at showing the reader how the Prophet (saw) carried the dawah.

The Muslims, since the destruction of their Khilafah in the year 1924, at the hands of the disbelievers and their agents, have lived and continue to live a life of divisions, instability, weakness and insignificance. So after they were the leaders of the world they have become led and after having been one Ummah to the exclusion of all people they have now become divided peoples separated by manufactured borders that lie between them. They are ruled by man-made systems and their weak entities, that number more than fifty, do not benefit them or take them away from being considered part of the third world and they are helpless before the disbelievers if they wish to usurp and take away parts of their lands like they have done in Palestine amongst other lands.
They have experimented with and been experimented upon with thoughts and man-made systems which have been taken from both the East and the West.
The Tareeqah (Methodology) to resume the Islamic way of life must be taken from Islam alone because it is a complete and comprehensive ideology containing the Fikrah (thought) and the Tareeqah (method). Indeed it is a thought and a method and its method must be of the same type and kind as its thought. For this reason it is not permitted for those working in the Da’wah, to be diverted by even a hairs breadth away from the method because Allah (swt) has made this method Fard (obligatory). It is the Method that the Messenger of Allah (saw) proceeded upon until he established the Islamic State in Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah, the Islamic State that lasted for over 1300 years before it was destroyed at the hands of the disbelievers.Learn More$9.00
