  • Akhlaq Wal Siyar - Morals & Behaviours - Ibn Hazm al Andalusi

    Ibn Hazm Al Andalusi

    Paperback, 97 pages
    5.83 x 8.26 in
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    I have gathered together in this book numerous ideas which Allâh, the provider of intellect, has enabled me to profit from as day succeeded day, [and year succeeded year] and circumstances altered, permitting me to understand the vicissitudes of fate and to control its fluctuations, to the extent that I have devoted the larger part of my life to it. I have chosen to master these problems by study and contemplation, rather than throw myself into the various sensual pleasures which attract most souls on this earth, and rather than amass unnecessary wealth. I have gathered together all my observations into this book in the hope that the Almighty may allow it to benefit whichever of His servants He wishes who has access to [is capable of understanding] my book, in the matters over which I have slaved, devoting all my efforts to them and reflecting at length upon them. I hope that it will be well received, and I present it with good intentions and blessings [with a good heart].

    This book will benefit a person more than financial treasures and possessions of property, if he meditates upon it, and if Allâh enables him to make good use of it. As for myself, my hope in this enterprise is to win the greatest reward from Allâh, since my intention is to help His servants, to remedy whatever is corrupt in their character, and to heal the sickness of their souls. I beseech the assistance of Allâh [Almighty, we wish only for God, the best of defenders].

  • Al Ghazali on Islamic Guidance - Bidayat Al Hidaya

    Muhammad Abul Quasem

    Paperback, 123 pages
    5.83 X 8.226 in
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    In the 11th Century AD there was a great deterioration in Muslim’s belief and observance of the Shariah as a result of the evil influence of AlFarabi and IbnSina’s Neoplatonic philosophy, of Shia Batinism , of false Sufis and evil religious scholars. It was at this time of laxity in beliefs and practices that Abu hamid Muhammad Al Ghazali (D 505 Hijri) flourished as a renewer (Mujaddid) of the deen and as one of the greatest intellectuals of Islamic history.

    Well versed in almost all major intellectual disciplines of the time, Al-Gahazali refuted the prevailing false beliefs completely and fully exposed the wrongness of existing practices. As substitutes to these, he presented a belief system following the Ashari Sunni tradition and a system of practices in the light of the Quran and the Sunnah, Fiqh, Sufism and his own thoughts and experiences. This system of practices may be called Al Ghazalis theory of Islamic guidance, an aspect of which is set forth in the Present work.

  • Muslim Youth - Followers or Leaders ?

    Abdul Hamid

    English Edition, 2016
    Paperback, 88 Pages
    14.7 x 21 cm 
    MaktabaIslamia Imprints

    Muslims at University are faced with many problems, obstacles and challenges. Whether they are in their home cities or have moved, having left home for the first time. They prepare themselves for the problems of coping with the workload, organising their time, accommodation and coursework. Although these problems are real and cannot be overlooked they are just the tip of the iceberg.

    Ironically in the first week at university the first problems they face will not be organising their time or coping with the workload. In the first weeks they’re likely to be invited to a party by their department, their colleagues will invite them to go clubbing and the Student Union will invite everyone to a pub-crawl. At the fresher’s fair every society will try and sign them up including the clubbing society with their promises of cheap beer and discounts at the clubs and the Asian society who will be promoting their “bhangra do’s” and parties.

    This leaves Muslims with a real dilemma: should we go with the flow and compromise our identity or stick to our principles and risk being called “anti-social”. So how do Muslim students face this dilemma?

Reflecting on these wise sayings and heeding these counsels will assist in infusing us with the requisite awareness and fervour to prepare for the Day of Judgement.

  • Taqarrub ila allah - drawing closer to allah - Fawzi Sunuqrut

    Fawzi Sunuqrut  

    Paperback, 92 Pages
    14.8 x 21 cm
    ISBN: 81-7101-302-3
    MaktabaIslamia Publications

    The path to achieve revival and resume the Islamic way of life is a path adorned with struggles and challenges at all stages. It is a work that requires Nafsiyas (Islamic Disposition) that are unrivalled and elevated, formidable and purified.

    The way to achieve this is by strengthening the connection and relationship to Allah (swt), the Lord of the worlds and all creation.

    He Subhanahu must be relied upon alone for help and full Tawakkul must be placed upon Him alone, whilst the attainment of His pleasure must be made the highest aim of this life. It is necessary to reawaken the Nufoos (hearts) with Taqwa of Allah (swt) and obedience to Him, with the fear of His punishment and yearning for His gardens of paradise

    The one who carries the Da’wah is in the greatest need of being obedient to Allah (swt) and to stand firmly upon His Deen. If he was to do that then the Dunya would become insignificant in front of his eyes, the affair of the disbelievers would be diminished before him and the difficult matters would become easier.

    Across 12 Chapters, the author in this book has made a collection of Qurabaat (Acts of gaining closeness to Allah (swt)) and Taa’aat (Acts of obedience pleasing to Allah (swt)), which generate the Jaw Al-Imani (Atmosphere of Iman) within the Da’wah carrier and increase the realisation of his relationship and connection to Allah (swt) Ta’alaa.

  • The building of the Islamic disposition (Nafsiya) and how to develop it

    Bilal Fathi Saleem

    Paperback, 65 pages
    14.7 x 21 cm
    MaktabaIslamia Imprint

    The behavioural disposition (nafsiyyah) is the method for satisfying man’s instincts and organic needs i.e. the manner in which they are satisfied according to a standard which man believes in and trusts. When the satisfaction is based on the Islamic ‘Aqīdah then he has an Islamic disposition, if not he has a disposition other than the Islamic behavioural disposition.

    If a person has one standard for the mentality and behavioural disposition, then his personality becomes distinctive and regulated. If the Islamic ‘Aqīdah was the basis of his mentality and behavioural disposition, his personality would be Islamic. If not, then his personality would be something else.

    The book seeks to help the Mumineen reaffirm their Iman in Allah such that their tongues are moist with the remembrance of Allah (swt), their hearts are filled with the fear of Allah (swt) and that their limbs hasten towards the good deeds.

    It guides the reader with various principles in forming the Islamic Nafsiya and the styles to achieve the correction visualization of the Islamic concepts.

  • The Islamic Way of Thinking

    Hasan Abdullah

    Paperback, 135 Pages
    13.8 x 21 cm 
    ISBN: 1 899 574 336
    MaktabaIslamia Publications 

    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.

    Some of the subjects covered in this book are

    -        Thinking in metaphysics
    -        Thinking in areas that do not require thinking
    -        Wishful thinning
    -        Logic in jurisprudence
    -        Justified based thinking
    -        Greek philosophy
    -        Narrow thinking
    -        Emotional thinking
    -        Mixing between scientific and intellectual thinking

  • The Ninety Nine (99) beautiful names of Allah - Imam Ghazali

    Al-Ghazali

    Paperback, 216 pages
    9,75 X 9.9 in
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    We present this translation of Al-Ghazalis treatise on the ninety nine beautiful names of Allah (swt) as a way of allowing those hitherto unfamiliar with Islamic thought to taste something of the reflective capacities of a man who has continued to be recognized as a philosophical theologian over the centuries. The treatise is based in practice: The custom on the party of Muslims to recite the names of God culled from the Quran in a traditional order, usually using a set of 33 beads (Subha) to assist them in enumerating the names. These names recall the attributes whereby god has made himself in revelation, and which also connect human expressions with matters divine. So to recall God as ‘the merciful one’ is to allude to those verse of the Quran where god is so named, as well as experiences of mercy we may have had.

    The connection between our experience and the reality of God’s mercy may be tenuous, but the verbal connection provides a slender threat, at least so that reciting these divine names allows us to bring God into our ambit. So that reciting these divine names allows us to being God into our ambit. Ye the fact the names are more than attributes, because God uses them of Himself in revealing himself to the prophet, saves our recitation from reducing God to our experience.

    Part one canvasses some of the conceptual issues involved, such as differentiating name from the attribute, outlining what is involved in the act of naming and how names related to the object they purport to name. His reflections here mirror some of the issues currently debated in philosophical circles, to show that these matters defy easy resolution.

    Part two addresses each name in the traditional list (of Abu Hurayra), first noting how our use of the term to attribute certain to God may be clarified and purified so as to provide a helpful, rather than a misleading, pointer to the reality which the Quran names in god. The second part of his treatment of each name is normally introduced by the term ‘Counsel’ (tanbeeh) and intends to offer counsel on how individual believers might themselves have a share in this divine attribute, and thereby make themselves more pleasing to God.

  • The Son: With his Father & Mother

    Yusuf Baadarani

    Translation of 1st Edition, 2016
    Paperback, 154 Pages
    13.8 x 21 cm
    ISBN: 1899574352
    MaktabaIslamia Publications

    The subject of kindness to parents is part of the subject of life and of the point of view of Islam concerning life. It holds special importance at this time, the time of isolating Islam from the mainstream of life.

    In fulfillment of my duty to the new generations of Muslims, I found this search into the jurisprudence of dutifulness and undutifulness toward one's parents to be an urgent need for every son and daughter wishing to gain a bigger share of the reward for obeying Allah through obeying the parents, if the opportunity is still favorable for completing the fortification of the Muslim family so that through it Allah will defeat Satan and so that it will turn into a fortress which protects the tenets of Allah's religion on this earth.

  • The Tragedy of Karbala

    Dr Israr Ahmad

    Paperback, 22 pages 
    5.83 x 8.27 inch
    Dar At Thaqafah

    The contents of this booklet mainly consist of a speech delivered by Dr. Israr Ahmad, Ameer of Tanzeem-e-Islami, on 8th of Muharram Al-Haram (the first month of the Islamic calendar). The speech was delivered in Darussalam Mosque, Lahore, and was later published in Meesaq, the monthly magazine and the organ of Tanzeem-e-Isalmi. After a persistent demand from the readers, the speech was published in the form of a booklet under the title Saniha-e-Karbala.

    The substance of the booklet is an endeavor to reveal the real background of the tragedy of Karbala and to lay bare the events leading to a series of tragedies in the Islamic history. The tragedy taken in a distorted perspective has led to tremendous confusion about the conflicts of the Companions of the Holy Prophet (saw). It gave rise to a separate sect in Islam, the Shi‘ah. It is necessary for every Muslim to be aware of the real background of the events in order to avoid distorted concepts about the Companions of the Holy Prophet (saw), as it is a part of our faith to show due respect to them all and consider everyone of them free from perversion of intention in their actions
