Smoking, a Social Poison

This book deals with the epidemic of smoking, which has entered into the houses of the Muslims in a most devastating manner. What Makes this problem even worse is than many of the Muslims do not see or admit to the prohibition of smoking and its great danger. Rather, When they are advised about it, they quickly echo a thing they heard from so-called scholars: "But it is not Prohibited - it is only disliked!" This necessitates providing some advice to those people who seek the truth but have only heard the wrong views of the shallow minded. It is important to present a clear picture of smoking , and a detailed reasoning for its prohibition.

Birth Prevention, an Islamic Perspective

This book presents a sound and comprehensive Islamic understanding of birth prevention and other related issues. It first establishes the Islamic view of procreation. This is followed by an overview of birth prevention methods, old and modern. Next, it sets important guidelines for understanding verdicts related to birth prevention. Finally, it presents the regulations regarding each birth prevention method, including abortion.

Our discussions and conclusions are founded on clear proofs from the Quran and Sunnah, and are documented with relevant quotes from eminent Islamic scholars. This should make them both enlightening and convincing to the readers.

Regulations of Worship During Menses

A normal woman spends about one quarter of her life while she is in a state of menses or post-natal bleeding. During those times, a woman is physically and emotionally stressed. She needs special guidelines to help her conduct her religious and daily life properly and satisfactorily. Islaam, being the final and most complete religion, thoroughly covers and wisely directs all aspects of the human life. Therefore, it is no wonder that it deals with menses issues in a clear and sympathetic manner. When the Islaamic regulations of menses are well understood and correctly implemented, they make it easy for a woman to conduct her close-to-illness menstrual cycle in a smooth and balanced manner. Because of this, we find it necessary to reestablish the correct Islaamic teachings regarding various menses issues. Thus, we offer to our readers the present book, hoping that many of the English-speaking Muslim women will be able to benefit from it in guiding themselves and others toward a more healthy practical and spiritual life during menses.

The Spiritual Journey (at-Tabukyyah)

This book is instrumental in explaining the true Methodology of adherence to Allaah’s Book, His Messenger’s Sunnah, and the Guidance of the sahaabah. True to his well-known insightful approach in delving into the texts, Ibn ul-Qayyim starts by explaining the qualities of righteousness and piety that are required from everyone, both in practice and in da‘wah. He then proceeds to describe the true meaning of migration to Allaah and His Messenger, discussing in the process full submission to the Messenger’s Sunnah as an integral requirement of eemaan. He then goes on to deliberate on the situations of true misery and true happiness. Toward the end, he stipulates the requirements of the Journey of Migration, presenting along the way some very important insights for sound comprehension of the Qur’aan. In addition to its valuable methodological coverage, this book is very touching in its address to the soul and heart. This is a characteristic that you rarely find in writings of other authors. May Allaah reward Ibn ul-Qayyim profusely.

This first three books in the series cover various aspects of marriage according to the authentic Sunnah. Marriage Plays a most central role in the human life, and has been largely discussed by the scholars of Islam through the ages, resulting in numerous writings and treatises. Some of those writings, mostly by contemporary scholars, have been translated to English. However, we find them restricted in scope, addressing Muslims who live in predominantly Islamic countries, or overlooking important real issues that have developed under the modern civilization. This leaves quite a large gap that needs to be filled for the benefit of the Muslims in English-speaking countries, and this is what we attempt to fulfill over the span of three books. The final book in the series is a logical continuation to this topic, which deals with the normal fruit of marriage babies.

Other discussions include tahnik, shaving the baby's head, piercing the ears, breast-feeding, protection from the evil eye, babies' toys and clothes, birthdays, and so on.

All praise is due to Allah.

Books dealing in depth with specific fiqh issues.

Festivals & Celebrations in Islam

Festivals and celebrations are occasions of joy and happiness. They have their distinctive spirit in all societies and cultures, and are eagerly awaited and heartily welcomed by everyone.

The feeling of excitement associated with these occasions, however, causes people to introduce uncommon, strange or even bizarre practices during them.

Islam regulates the occasions to be celebrated and the methods of celebrating them. It maintains their atmosphere of happiness, while redirecting it to benefit the individuals and the Muslim communities.

This book discusses the two annual Islaamic festivals: Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adhaa as well as the weekly Jumu’ah. It presents the Islaamic guidelines for celebration according to the Quraan and Sunnah, and warns against innovated occasions and un-Islaamic festivals.

In addition to topics that are standard to ‘Id celebration, such as the ‘Id prayer and khutbah, and ‘Id pastimes, this book discusses zakat-ul-fitr, the sacrifice, the blessed days of the month of Thul-Hijjah, and numerous other ‘Id-related issues.

The broad and thorough discussions in this book make it an important manual and complete reference on festivals and celebrations in Islam. Indeed, from Allah (swt) we seek help and acceptance.

The Night Prayers: Qiyam & Tarawih

With Allah's help, and in line with our goal of propagating authentic Islamic knowledge, we present this book.

Providing a complete manual on the subject of qiyam and related issues, in accordance with the Qur'an, the Sunnah, and the guidance of the Salaf. b. Presenting to the English reader, in the process, two important works by the great scholar Muhammad Nasir ud-Deen al-Albani: Salat ut-Tarawih and Qiyam Ramadan. This book is not for Ramadan only. It is for all year round. It is for every night. It is the type of reference that you will want to keep by your pillow at night, and grab it as soon as you get up in the wee hours to pray. It is a gift that is sure to please and benefit - inshaa'llaah.

We inevitably go through the journey starting in this life, and extending into the grave, before our final abode in the hereafter. In the process, we pass through stages of sickness, death, and the intermediate life in the grave (al-Barzakh).

Sickness, Regulations & Exhortations

This book is the first in the series. It deals with sickness, which continues to afflict human beings from birth until death. Sickness strikes as light as a simple cold or allergy, and as hard as a plague or cancer. It keeps the human being under check, reminding him of his weakness and giving him a chance to turn to the One who possesses to afflict and cure. This book deals with sickness, its regulations, and lessons associated with it. It presents the Islamic stand toward a number of modern medical issues, and also discusses important regulations relating to those with disabilities.

Inheritance, Regulations & Exhortations

We inevitably go through the journey starting in this life, and extending into the grave, before our final abode in the hereafter. In the process, we pass through stages of sickness, death, and the intermediate life in the grave (al-Barzakh). Writing a will is a religious obligation on every capable Muslim. It protects against many problems and conflicts that could arise after a persons death. This obligation is more emphasized in the West; Failing to write a well founded will may result in the distribution of ones estate in discord with the Islamic law, and may lead to losses for some of the rightful inheritors.

Funerals, Regulations & Exhortations

We inevitably go through the journey starting in this life, and extending into the grave, before our final abode in the hereafter. In the process, we pass through stages of sickness, death, and the intermediate life in the grave (al-Barzakh). These are the subjects with which “The Inevitable Journey” deals over a sequence of four titles: : I. Sickness: Regulations & Exhortations II. The Islamic Will & Testament III. Funeral Regulations IV. Life in al-Barzakh. This book is the third in the series. It deals with the actual occurrence of death, and all lessons and regulations relating to it. It includes a close-to-complete translation of al-Albani’s Ahkaam ul-Janaa’iz. In addition, it contains extensive supplementary material, and an enhanced presentation with tables and diagrams, making it a useful handbook, reference, and source of admonishment concerning death. We believe that this is the first book in English presenting this material, based on purely authentic evidence, to this level of depth, breadth, and practicality. Indeed, we offer praise and thanks to Allah (SWT) for facilitating this.

The Dreamer's Handbook

This book starts by presenting a spiritual understanding of sleep from the Islamic viewpoint, which is followed by guidelines for recommended evening, pre-sleep, night, and morning acts of worship. The conceptual understanding of dreams is laid out next, followed by an analytical study of dreams in the Quran, and of dreams seen by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and by his companions (R). The rest of the book deals with dream interpretation, its correct rules and procedures, drills to help understand these rules, and a large glossary of interpreted dream symbols. This, we hope, fulfills two important goals regarding sleep and dreams: It establishes their understanding upon the strong foundation of the Quran and Sunnah, and it eliminates a great deal of superstition that surrounds them. Indeed, from Allah (SWT) alone we seek help and acceptance.
