A Treasury of Ibn Taymiyyah – His Timeless Thought and Wisdom – Mustapha Sheikh

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728/1328) is one of the most fascinating scholars from medieval Islamic civilization, acknowledged for his intellectual brilliance by both his admirers and his detractors. His readiness to present his own scholarly interpretations of scripture, and his instinctive rejection of much of the received wisdom of his day, mark him out as one of the most original thinkers of Islam, and indeed, one of the most incisive minds in human history.

This collection, a commentary on a brief sampling of Ibn Taymiyyah’s writings, represents a drop in the ocean of his multifaceted scholarly legacy. The reader is given a taste of this scholar’s views on theology, worship, spirituality, law, reason, revelation, and much else that is sure to enrich the reader’s understanding of Islam.

“refreshingly accurate… highly engaging, with elegant commentary, and adorned with footnotes referencing materials for further study.” – Yasir Qadhi, Al Maghrib Institute


A Treasury of Ghazali – Mustafa Abu Sway

This beautiful edition comprises forty gems from Ghazali’s inexhaustible treasury of writings with accompanying commentaries.

Al-Ghazālī  has been described by some scholars as the greatest Muslim in Islamic history. His prolific works, written over the duration of his relatively short lifetime, have deeply influenced Islamic thought for nearly a thousand years. Al-Ghazālī was a polymath who had mastered every discipline known to the scholars of his time. In many ways, his corpus of writings on law, theology, philosophy, and Islamic spirituality, represent the most influential understanding of the Islamic religion ever articulated.

This short volume, written by one of the world’s leading experts on al-Ghazālī, comprises forty gems from al-Ghazālī’s inexhaustible treasury of writings, that give the modern reader insights into both the richness of al-Ghazālī’s thought, and how they can better help us understand Islam today.

Muslims have lived in the “West” for hundreds of years, yet the lives of all but a few are little known. In this illuminating work, Muhammad Mojlum Khan sets out to change this by revealing the lives and impact of over fifty significant Muslims, from the founder of Muslim Spain in the eighth century to Muhammad Ali of yesteryear.

Including the contributions of great philosophers, scientists and theologians, alongside the achievements of musicians, sportspeople and writers, this work shows just how diverse, original and positive the Muslim influence on the West has been, and continues to be.

This extraordinary book features biographies on the enslaved African Prince Ayuba Sulaiman Diallo, who was put to work in the tobacco fields of Maryland; Abdullah Quilliam, the Victorian Shaykh of the British Isles; Alexander Russell Webb, the voice of Muslims in Victorian America; and W.D. Muhammad, Elijah Muhammad’s son, who mentored Malcolm X and transformed the Nation of Islam. Scroll below to see the full list!

Al-Adab al-Mufrad A Perfect Code of Manners and Morality By Imam Bukhari

This anthology of 1329 hadiths is a treasured work in Muslim history by one of its most respected scholars, Imam Bukhari. All of the hadith are directly related to the standards of manners and morality Islam wants to prevail and Muslims throughout the world have been guided by it since its preparation over a millennium ago.

This edition includes a contemporary commentary on each topical collection of hadiths, clearly emphasising the relevance of the Prophet’s teachings in our modern and complex societies. This pioneering addition marks it out as perhaps the first English work commenting on and explaining a full anthology of hadiths.

Revive Your Heart – More Reviews!

Written by R on . Posted in From Kube Shelves, Trade Books

As Salaam Alaykum,

Alhamdulillah we’ve been getting a lot more positive feedback on ‘Revive Your Heart‘ and we wanted to share what other people have been saying about this title.

“His writing style is conversational. You feel as if your older brother is sitting next to you having a heart to heart and offering some really sincere advice. If you enjoy his lectures, you will enjoy his writing style.

As Nouman is a student of knowledge and an Arabic teacher, much of what he discusses focuses on in his book are different translations and the roots, connotations, and synonyms of the Arabic used in the Quran”

AboutIslam.net

“One thing I have always appreciated about Nouman Ali Khan is his honesty. You can tell when something seriously grieves him in his videos just from the way he talks or when something ridiculous cracks him up. It’s the same for Revive Your Heart. Revive Your Heart was written to suggest how Muslims can find peace in chaotic times. In a world that revolves around technology, social media and globalisation, it is easy to get distracted and disheartened by every day life. ”

Pardon My Writings
“This book reminds us not just about the temporary nature of this life, but how we should nurture our heart so it’s ready for the Hereafter. It also touches upon the pertinent issues and challenges affecting the Muslim communities such as the issue of leadership, disunity in the Muslim Ummah and the unacceptable attitudes some Muslim communities have towards women and daughters, despite the beautiful teaching of Islam that call us to honour them.

What we like the most about the book is how Khan makes enormous efforts to explain the meaning of important words or verses in the Qur’an so that the reader may actually understand and appreciate the message and beauty of their religion. Nowadays, the ongoing developments in technology and everything around us can easily distract us from our duties and purpose in life. It is as if our physical body is just going through the motions, and our hearts (and ruh (soul)) are dying.”

Productive Muslim

“In its essence, it’s a book that calls into question the importance of reviving your heart, to not get caught up in life to the point where you forget your spirituality and character-building. To at least form a habit of remembering God in our lives as the busy lifestyle we all may lead, can take us away from the bigger picture. To just having a moment of peace, reflection and a sit-down conversation with God.”

i.Reads

“His profound explanations of disarmingly simple words and phrases is by far the book’s greatest strength, as it opens up the world of the Qur’an in a way few other sermonic texts do. This book will no doubt prove popular as a devotional work for the faithful Muslim reader, and it might also benefit those who want to understand what it means to be Muslim beyond the headlines and in the midst of modern life.”

Revive Your Heart – Reviews (part 1)

Written by R on . Posted in From Kube Shelves, Nouman Ali Khan

As Salaam Alaykum,

Alhamdulillah we’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback on ‘Revive Your Heart‘ and we wanted to share what other people have been saying about this title.

 

“Nouman Ali Khan uses his expertise in the Arabic language to help readers to understand the deepest meaning of the Quran, a process which is supported through the use of relevant examples and analogies that can be easily understood and relatable to everyday experiences and situations.

This thought-provoking book challenges the reader to revise their beliefs and actions, encouraging transformation from within and externally. It serves as a wake-up call to reflect and to rectify a modern Muslim’s relationship and interaction with Allah through du’a (prayers) and His book. It also helps to realign their perspective in that life in this world is temporary and that Jannah (Paradise) is the final destination.

This book is also an excellent resource for people who want to learn the actual message and the essence of Islam in the sense that what people see in a Muslim individual and Muslim communities may not reflect the beauty and simplicity of the religion.

Quake Magnitude: 8.5

Quake Books

“While it is hugely important that we publish Islamic books, it is even more important to publish the right type of books – it simply isn’t enough to put something out there that isn’t reaching the masses, isn’t moving them in any way; urging, encouraging, inspiring. I’ve read many Islamic books that simply bind together facts and followings with nothing else – no guidance, no additions, no nothing. Revive Your Heart features commentary from Nouman Ali Khan, with his brilliant teachings and perspectives – whereby he raises questions, ponders them – and answers them, all within the realm of Islam with substantial quotes and hadiths that he doesn’t just slap on, but actually takes the time to speak to you, as the reader, and help you move forward with it… Each quote is carefully selected, includes context and also widens the net as to how this can be used in our modern society and what we should hope to take away from it.

I personally found that each chapter of the book is hugely relevant in this day and age and looks at key hurdles we’re facing in our faith, ways to overcome it and use it to strengthen us. ”

Reading in between the lines

“An Instant Connection! Can I just say that it felt almost as if Nouman Ali Khan was talking to me as I read the book. I feel like it’s written in a conversational way where it’s almost like he’s having a conversation with you. Personally, I think that captured my attention. Maybe it could just be me because I have heard a lot of his lectures so it sounded like a familiar voice.

The book basically discusses the problems modern Muslims face today. From being able to keep a spiritual connection with Allah, to how to deal with negativity about our religion in the media. It is truly a beneficial book and one that we can all gain from in sha’Allah.”

Step inside my handbag

“A great book should be a guide and leave a lasting impression on the minds and hearts of readers. If one can gain lessons after reading it and apply them in one’s everyday life, it’s all the more great—and this is precisely one such book!…In this book, Khan deals with a range of issues, from the highly personal to the global, with great finesse and in a wonderfully easy conversational style, appealing to us to rethink what we are doing with our lives. Consider these pearls of wisdom, for instance:

“The world today is abuzz with unrelenting activity. The developments in the world of politics, economics, social media, entertainment, technology… all vying for our attention. But more importantly, they are vying to distract our hearts. In line with the ideology of unfettered free markets, we are constantly being ‘exhorted’ to consume.”

Khan hearkens us to rethink the hedonistic lifestyle that reduces human beings into atomised consumers and that can even make one’s religious life commodified into a form of entertainment. He points out the crisis of religious identity that Muslims are faced with today, with their global image being sought to be hijacked by violent groups misusing the name of Islam. These groups draw young Muslims, ignorant of their religion, into their ranks, through their domination of the headlines with shocking acts of violence.

Khan urges us that the only way for Muslims to come out of the morass that they find themselves in today is to connect with God. This is related to the need to put life in perspective, reminding ourselves not to forget the true nature of reality—including the fact that our lives here are temporary.

Revive Your Heart-Putting Life in Perspective will tug at your heart-strings. It is an inspiring call to live life the way God wants you to, not the way you might want! It is hoped that this book will contribute to inspiring modern Muslims to become sources of light in our world through re-orienting their outlook towards greater God-consciousness, greater compassion and greater social responsibility.”

Revive Your Heart with Nouman Ali Khan – New book by Bayyinah founder published by Kube

Written by R on . Posted in Author, Uncategorized

Being a Muslim today isn’t easy. Pushed, pulled and prodded from every direction, life can be disheartening and difficult to understand.

Revive Your Heart – written by Nouman Ali Khan – is an indispensable book, offering guidance that is both bold and heartfelt to modern Muslims navigating their way through a life that is ever more destabilising.

Nouman Ali Khan is one of the world’s most recognisable Muslims. At home in America, educated in the West and spiritually trained in the East, he is uniquely able to connect with modern Muslims; understanding the challenges they face, internally and externally, on a daily basis in the 21st century, from the rise of the alternative right to the complexities of family life.

This book is the result of his experiences – at home, in his community, and as a teacher – that combine to show us how to fulfil our faith, build healthy communities, purify our finances and respond to the rise of terrorism in the name of Islam.The vital point that runs through the book however, is more holistic: how to orientate ourselves so that we may find peace, and preserve through the difficult times that lie ahead.A path that, properly navigated, will revive a heart, transform a life and lead to success in both this life and the hereafter

The Kube Editor hopes that in a world that is abuzz with “unrelenting activity constantly vying for our attention” this book can “inspire modern Muslims to become sources of light in our world through the revival of their hearts.”
