  • Biography of the Prophet And the Orientalists Vol 1&2 - Mohd Mohar Ali

    Mohd Mohar Ali

    Paperback, 1034 pages [2 Volumes Combined]
    6.75 x 9.9 inch
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    The orientalists have been studying the seerah of the prophet with a view to casting doubt and raising suspicions and discrediting the life and personality of the Prophet (saw). Their approach has evolved over the period of time. At times they have been vicious in their attacks as was the case in the 18th century which with time during the 19th and 20th century became seemingly sympathetic to his life.

     This study by Dr Mohammad Mohar Ali critically analyses the works of three famous orientalists, William Muir, D.S Margoliouth and W. Montgomery Watt. Dr Ali refutes the charges levelled by them against the life and character of the Prophet (saw) with an erudition which the treatment of such a subject requires

  • 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)

  • The Reconciliation of the Fundamentals of Islamic Law [Al Muwafaqat fi Usul al Sharia] - Vol 1 & 2 - Al Shatibi

    Ibrahim ibn Musa Abu Ishaq Al Shatibi

    Paperback, 670 pages [2 Volumes ]
    6.75 x 9.9 inch
    Dar Ul Thaqafah

    First published in 1884 in Tunis, The Reconciliation of the Fundamentals of Islamic Law (or al-Muwafaqat fi Usul Al-Sharai'a), written by Ibrahim ibn Musa Abu Ishaq al-Shatibi, was an innovation in Islamic jurisprudence.

    It was the first book to address the objectives of the shari'a. The difficulty that some may find in comprehending some of its parts may be attributed to the fact that it was the first time that the codification of the maqasid or objectives of the shari'a was undertaken. The book has been a source of inspiration, moderation, and renewal in fiqh.

    However, it deals with much more than the maqasid, and substantial research is needed to unravel its full contribution.

    The author described the contents of his book as follows: When the concealed secrets began to be revealed...I started collecting their unique meanings...I did this to the extent of my ability and strength, while elaborating the purposes of the Book (Qur'an) and the Sunna...organizing these precious gems and gathering these benefits into meanings that have re-course to the principles helping in their comprehension and attachment, and I merged them with the interpretation of principles of fiqh and organized them on a shining and radiant string.

    The resulting book is divided into in five parts: the fundamental concepts of the discipline; the ahkam (rules) and what is related to them; the legal purposes of the shari'a and the ahkam related to them; the comprehensive treatment of the adilla (evidences); and the rules of ijtihad and taqlid.

    Volume 1 – now available in paperback – covers the first two parts described above by the author. . The translation of the third part, dealing with the purposes of the shari'a, is presented in Volume II.
