    Help me out please, I need a few (Islamic) book recommendations...

    Report bad ads?

    Hey guys, I really need some book recommendations... I know a lot of books exist on these topics, but I want the most trustworthy/accurate books you know of... Here's what I'm looking for:

    An Arabic-English Dictionary... I hear Hans-wehr is the standard, but if you know of one that's better, let me know.

    An Arabic Grammar book (in English) - I've been recommended a Grammar book by my teachers at my university (Wright's Arabic Grammar)... They said it was amazing, so if anyone has any experience with it (or another good book) let me know please!

    I would like a book that covers the basics on the 4 madhabs and their respective founders. You can recommend one book that contains info on all of them, or multiple books that focus on specific schools/founders... I'm interested in the stories of the four madhabs founders, and the basics in their reasoning and methods... A book of their sayings would be cool too. All in English please... (I'm Hanafi, so if you can only think of one, a book on Abu Hanifa or the Hanafi school would probably be best... but I'd really like one on each. :P) I'm really lost where to begin on this one, since I don't know which English accounts are at all reliable...

    And finally... I need a good, comprehensive and reliable book on the Seerah of Muhammad (saw). I've heard of one being mentioned before on this forum, but I can't remember it's name...


    Also, if you could give me a very quick rundown about each book you recommend that would be great... Maybe let me know why you think it's reliable. Thanks in advance!

    That's the best in modern day I hear.

    Madinah University books for Arabic grammr is cool.

    4 Madhabs - there's a book out there...:

    Pricey though, I guess.

    This is the best I've read on seerah:
    Fiqh as Sirah an-Nabawiyyah Ma'a Mujaz Litarikh al-Khilafah Ar-Rasyidah
    by DR. Said Ramadhan Al-Buthy

    I don't what the title is in english, I read the bahasa indonesia translation.
    I think it's even better than the sealed nectar by Mubarrakpuri

    The Sealed nectar is the most amazing book ever written about rasululah (saw). You can get it from Islamic Book strores, or order one online.=)
