I have been asked to suggest an Islamic book for some1 who has expressed an interest in Islam, which has spiritual element not Sufism and not Qur’an translation…
Any Ideas?
Thank you

The thing is that Im not sure what 'spiritual' means, as it was a request from a sister to another sister, and then to me. So Im a bit unclear about what it means myself.If anyone has any thoughts about what it could mean, that would be much appreciated.
Jazak Allah!

assuredly not to disagree with Brother Qatada, i would recommend a simple book on the Seerah, such as Martin Ling's Muhammad Based Upon the Earliest Writings [which has a few gross errors] or a better one that someone can suggest [like the Sealed Nector]; or The Road To Mecca by Leopold Wiess A/K/A Muhammad Asad.

the Seerah i recommend because you learn how revelation came down and the history of Islam. my opinion would be that some of the most distorted views one has about Islam would be eliminated and hopefully they would want to learn more!

a brother was trying to make Dawwah with someone and nothing was working, he gave them a copy of the Road To Mecca and they loved it! the book is about how Wiess a German Jew not only became a Muslim but also was intimate with the house of Saud [but we won't mention how that brought about some curious editing after falling out of favor with them...]

bro yusuf, i think this ones good in its writing, plus it has less errors compared to martin lings :)


Muhammad: Man and Prophet by Adil M. Salahi.



There's a good book called Don't be Sad [by Aaidh ibn Abdullah al-Qarni], which you can access on the internet, but its better to be read in real life.

i was going to suggest that book, its got to be one of the best 'spiritual' books I've read! It would be great for a non-Muslim to benefit from too.
