    And after everyone has read all these excellent Islamic texts, I'm sure you can just take a trip to the bookshop and buy any number of law books by any of my following lecturers:

    Michael Hirst

    John Marsden

    Neil Hawke.

    Seriously, I could make some dough here.

    Re: Recommend a Book!


    i dotn reccomend book of tawheed by bilal philips - may allaah guide him

    in that book he says that if a muslim cannot cannot stop an opressive ruler by hand , the very least he should do is make dua against him or soemthing along those lines. this is in clear oppostion to the way of the salaf. for example:

    And al-Fudayl said, "If I had a supplication that would be answered, I would not make it except for the leader (imaam) because when the leader becomes righteous, the towns and servants become safe and secure."

    Ibn al-Mubaarak said (in reference to the above saying of al-Fudayl), "O teacher of goodness, who would show boldness towards this besides you?"


    found in shar us sunnah/explanation of the creed of imam al barbaharee (d.329H) SP publications


    Brother, I totally agree with you, no doubt. But, Bilal Philips has actually done tawbah about that and removed that part from the bok, wa lilahil hamd.

    I think it's imperative that we actually choose those books recommended and buy and read before more suggestions come.

    Islam is not in books. they're tools to help us understand issues and give some insights.

    Very true. You could also buy law textbooks by any of the authors I named.

    Re: Recommend a Book!


    I would like to recommend Edward Gibbon's "History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire." Gibbon was an Englishman who lived during the eighteenth century CE, and his work is commonly regarded as the finest historical writing available in English.

    The book is large. It's divided into eight volumes and it covers thirteen centuries, from the second century CE to 1453 CE, when Constantinople fell. Although the whole book is highly recommended, readers on the forum here may be particularly interested in Book 6, "Mohammed and the Rise of the Arabs", for an outsider's treatment of Islamic history. Some of the quotes that appear in the "Non-Muslim Quotes about Islam" thread under his name are taken from this book. He was highly impressed by Islam, yet continued calling himself a Deist, a term which at the time was very often a cover for atheism used by people who feared persecution by the Christian authorities. (David Hume, the Scottish philosopher, is another example of this.)

    In fact, being an unbeliever, Gibbon's knowledge of early religion was quite distressing to the Christian authorities, because there are many areas of Christian history for which the only sources available at the time were in Gibbon's book.

    Re: Recommend a Book!





    by Sheikh Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi

    An Introduction to the Sciences of the Qur'aan presents a detailed and thorough explanation of the sciences related to the history, understanding and implementation of the Qur'aan. The book provides the English reader with a detailed analysis of classic Muslim scholarship regarding: the process of Inspiration (wahy); the various means of classifying verses of the Qur'aan; the history of the compilation of the Qur'aan; the meaning of the seven ahruf and the ten qira'aat of the Qur'aan; the miraculous nature of the Qur'aan; the concept of abrogation in the Qur'aan; the procedure and methodology of tafseer; and many other topics. The work has a number of sections dedicated to explaining the traditional Muslim refutations of certain beliefs of the Ash'arees with regards to the Qur'aan.

    This book also includes detailed discussions on modern Western scholarship of the Qur'aan. After presenting a history of the English translation of the Qur'aan, along with a critical review of some translations, the author discusses and refutes common Orientalist polemic literature on the Qur'aan.

    The work is unique in that it presents classical material in a simple and modern style, while maintaining a high academic level. It is the most advanced work of its kind in the English language, and a necessary reference for all serious students of Islamic knowledge.
