Written in the second Islamic century by al-Imam al-Shafi’i (d. 204AH/820AD), the founder of one of the four Sunni schools of law. This important work gives the fundamental principles of Islamic jurisprudence and its influence continues to the present day. During the early years of the spread of Islam, the exponents of Islamic legal doctrine were faced with the problems raised by ruling and administering a diverse and rapidly growing empire. In Medina and Kufa, as well as other cities of early Muslim rule, schools of law had to be developed, but it took the genius of Muhammad b. Idris al-Shafi’i, born in the year 150AH/767AD, to establish the principles by which the various legal doctrines could be synthesised into a coherent system. In the Risala, which laid down the basis for such a synthesis, al-Shafi’i established the overriding authority, next only to the Qur’an, of the Sunna or example of the Prophet Muhammad as transmitted in the traditions.

 



This booklet tells in a simple way about Muhammad’s birth, youth, marriage, and prophethood. Also tells about the new era mankind entered by the advent of Islam.

 



In recent times, many sincere Muslims have looked to ascertain the situation of our Nation, and what they see were the effects of the Devil (Shaytan), the blackness of wicked deeds, and the blood of many wounds. They saw discord, disagreement, disunity, confusion, and anxiety. They perceived the evil results of not ruling according to Allah’s Book – in the home, the streets, or the marketplace. They saw these results in schools, universities, books, newspapers, and the media; in fact, they even witnessed them in the best places, mosques, where innovations now flourish. And they have also seen the effects of that evil among the ranks of callers to Islam and students of knowledge.

 



Shaykh Abdullah Azzam writes, ‘Indeed, Allah has scales with which He attaches value to things, and people have different scales with which they attach value to things. Allah has scales that He wants to manifest on Earth as a way of life, as a system of life – scales that were considered something imaginary that would pass through the minds of the people, and have now become a reality in the form of manners, words, life, and movement.

 



A valuable study of the early conquest of Central Asia , known as Transoxia. Whilst the Ummayads where busy conquering the Maghrib and Andalusia, Persia, and the Sudan , they also brought Islam to the Turkic dominated Central Asia. This would have far reaching consequences in the development of the islamic empires. With the conversion to Islam of the Turkic People , Islam would find a new beacon. From the Turkic Slave empires in India and egypt, to the Defence of Islam against the Monghul Hordes, at Ain Jalot, to the founding of the Delhi and subsequent Mughal Dynasties in India. This conversion of Central Asia would also give rise to central asian dynasties such as the Seljuk Dynasty, the Timurid Dynasty and ultimately the Ottomans.

In this book we wish to present a clear understanding of the practical implementation of the ruling and administrative organisations of the Khilafah state. More importantly, through this clarity we hope to uplift the hearts of the Muslims, so that they can visualise what the Khilafah state will be and strive towards it.

 



This booklet will critically examine the argument that religion hinders man’s progress and it will show that there is no contradiction between science and Islam. Furthermore, the booklet will highlight some of the scientific achievements of Muslims during the time when Islam was implemented in a comprehensive fashion.

 



The source of all evil is the deviation from the truth and its straight path. The goodness of all matters is the following of truth and adherence to its right way. Truth is the fixed state in which Allah has created every creature in a particular way and managed its affair in a certain manner. Allah is Perfect and exempt from any deficiency or error. This book aims to elucidate the pillars of Emaan (basis of belief, faith) and the characteristics of Kufr (disbelief) and its causes.

 



At a time in which the Muslims are beset with trials from every periphery and within, comes this heartening book rooted in the commandments of Allah (swt), the Sunnah and the excellent guidance and examples of the Muslims that have come before us.

Don’t Be Sad is an absolute must-read for all people. It is full of practical advice on how to replace sadness with a pragmatic and ultimately satisfying Islamic outlook on life. It exposes to the modern reader how Islam teaches us to deal with the tests and tribulations of this world.

So, take heart and hold firmly onto the rope of Allah (swt).
