Sahih Al-Bukhari (9 Vol. Set - Arabic-English)


Sahih Al-Bukhari | Language: Arabic - English | Format: CHM | Pages: 4050 | 9 Volumes| Size: 8 MB

Generally regarded as the single most authentic collection of Ahadith, Sahih Al-Bukhari covers almost all aspects of life in providing proper guidance from the messenger of Allah. This 9-Volume Bukhari is the work of over 16 years by Imam Bukhari who before writing any Hadith in this book performed two Rakat prayer of guidance from Allah and when he was sure of the Hadith's authenticity, he wrote it in the book.





Tremendous amounts of errors exist in the translations by other translators. To eliminate the problem Dar-us-Salam spent over 3 years in the publication of this book and presented a book which is translated into English in a very easy & simple language, so that all readers can understand it without difficulty. This is the unabridged version consisting of 7563 ahadith (about 4000 pages) which are presented neatly in smaller books format and printed on fine paper. Each book (subtopics in each volume categorized by very broad topics such as the Book of As-Salat) contains many chapters which represent one logical unit of Ahadith. Each book contains anywhere from one to 150 chapters with each chapter containing several Ahadith.


This book will be a great addition to your library while giving you a true perspective on the traditions of the Prophet (PBUH). In Imam Bukhari's 'Al-Jami-al-Sahih' (Sahih Al Bukhari) the Imam had recorded all the Sayings of the Prophet which he found to be genuine after thorough examination and scrutiny. He spent sixteen years in research and examined more than sixty thousand Sayings from which he selected only sayings whose genuineness and accuracy he established beyond the slightest doubt. Deducting duplicates, the Imam's collection contain about four thousand distinct Sayings.

The well-known work al-Kalim at-Tayyib by Ibn Taymiyyah has been widely recognized as one of the best medium-sized books giving direct access to invocations (dua) and supplications (dhikr) to be used in worship on particular occasions. Sheikh al-Islam Ahmad Abd Al-Halim ibn Taymiyyah was on of the outstanding scholars of the seventh century A.H. He was well known for his in compromising adherence to the sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) and for combating objectionable innovations.

He died in Damascus in A.H 728.
The book is here presented in a shortened version, thus making it a useful manual of prayer. The translation has been made by two scholars whose previous books have gained general approval for their accuracy and readability. The translation is provided with notes and appropriate explanations. The book includes an introduction dealing with dua and dhikr in a Muslim's prayers and circumstances of daily life; it also gives the sources of such dua and dhikr that are authentic and reviews similar collections that have been made. In addition it deals with question of the permissibility or otherwise of employing translations of dua and dhikr. A companion to the translators' previous publications in the field of Hadith, the present book has been printed in similar format with the original Arabic text given for ease of reference.

Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence

By Mohammad Hashim Kamali


Publisher: Islamic Texts Society
Number Of Pages: 550
Publication Date: 2005-09-01
Binding: Paperback
File Size : 1.08
File Type : rar. pdf

Product Description:

This third edition of the best-selling title Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence has been completely revised and substantially enlarged. In this work, Prof Kamali offers us the first detailed presentation available in English of the theory of Muslim law (usul al-fiqh).

Often regarded as the most sophisticated of the traditional Islamic disciplines, Islamic Jurisprudence is concerned with the way in which the rituals and laws of religion are derived from the Qur'an and the Sunnah—the precedent of the Prophet. Written as a university textbook, Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence is distinguished by its clarity and readability; it is an essential reference work not only for students of Islamic law, but also for anyone with an interest in Muslim society or in issues of comparative Jurisprudence.

The Tao of Islam: A Sourcebook on Gender Relationships in Islamic Thought

By Sachiko Murata


Publisher: State University of New York Press
Number Of Pages: 397
Publication Date: 1992-03
File Size : 1.03 MB
File Type : Rar pdf


n "The Tao of Islam" Sachiko Murata uses the lens of gender ideas in Islam to explore in a comparative religious framework the idea of a spirtual cosmology based on feminine and masculine principles. Although she is aware of the contemporary issues of women's legal status in Islam, she feels that such issues are not as fundamental as understanding the true role of gender within the cosmos.
Those seeking arguments about whether the legal provisions of the Sharia (Islamic law) are or are not culpably sexist and what should be done about them if they are will not find much meat for their arguments in this book. Murata writes relatively clearly, and the writers she cites are often fascinating and insightful. They are, however, frequently prolix and I must say I found the book somewhat repetitive at times. (For this reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5.)

The Caliphate Question: The British Government and Islamic Governance

Fear and suspicion of Muslims, a government meddling in Middle Eastern
politics, and a backdrop of violence: sound familiar? It could be talking
about now, but it’s certainly describing British foreign policy in the run-up
to, during, and after World War I in connection to the issue of the Ottoman
Caliphate. It is for this reason that the period is so useful to look at for some
lessons on what to do, or not to do, as the West re-engages with issues of
Islamic Governance.

Mawdudi and the Making of Islamic Revivalism

· 0 comments

By Seyyed Vali Reza Nasr


Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Number Of Pages: 232
Publication Date: 1996-01-04
File Size : 13.051 MB
File Type : rar'd pdf (with bookmarks)


Product Description:

Nasr examines the life and thought of Mawlana Mawdudi, one of the first and most important Islamic ideological thinkers. Mawdudi was the first to develop a modern political Islamic ideology, and a plan for social action to realize his vision. The prolific writings and indefatigable efforts of Mawdudi's party, the Jamaat-i-Islami, first in India and later in Pakistan, have disseminated his ideas far and wide. His views have informed revivalism from Morocco to Malaysia.

Nasr discerns the events that led Mawdudi to a revivalist perspective, and probes the structure of his thought, in order to gain fresh insights into the origins of Islamic revivalism. He argues that Islamic revivalism is not simply a cultural rejection of the West, rather it is closely tied to questions of communal politics and its impact on identity formation, discourse of power in plural societies, and nationalism. Mawdudi's discourse, though aimed at the West, was motivated by Muslim-Hindu competition for power in British India. His aim, according to Nasr, was to put forth a view of Islam whose invigorated, pristine, and uncompromising outlook would galvanize Muslims into an ideologically uniform and hence politically indivisible community. In time, this view developed a life of its own and evolved into an all-encompassing perspective on society and politics, and has been a notable force in South Asia and Muslim life and thought across the Muslim world.

Islamic Fundamentalism is the best book. It pictures the real stories with ducuoments, all whys, and hows of terrorism regime of Iran.
It opens the targets of terrorism, and some of the inhumen activities of the Iran's rulers in the past, present, and future (if the regime exist).
Khomeni and his heirs, abuse Islam and Koran. The regime use the name of Islam, but it is just the Mullahs nickname, and they actions are against Islam and Koran. The Mullahs in Iran are the Godfathers of the fundamentalism. The regime is like an encapsulated abscess within the tumor in our democratic world.


Mojahedin, the resistance of Iran, has prevented and minimized the regime's terrorist and inhuman activities. Mrs. Rajavi, the ellect president for future of Iran, a Muslem and high educated woman,is trying to overthrow the regime, and estabelish democracy and freedom. She dislike Mullahs, strongly believes freedom, human rights, and democracy.

Toward Islamic Anthropology: Definition, Dogma, and Directions (Islamization of Knowledge Series, No 2)

· 0 comments

By Akbar S. Ahmed


Publisher: Intl Inst of Islamic Thought
Number Of Pages: 80
File Size :3.5 mb
File Type : rar.ed bookmarked pdf, P. 1986

Produck Description :

It would appear that anthropology is, if not a child, a creation of the West and more specifically Western imperialism. This is not so. The work of Ibn Khaldun is reflected-with theoretical frame and supporting data-in that of some of the most influential contemporary Western theorists including Karl Marx, Max Weber, Vilfredo Pareto, and Ernest Gellner. Weber’s typology of leadership, Pareto’s circulation of elites, and Gellner’s pendulum swing theory of Muslim society betray the influence of Ibn Khaldun. It is indeed a tragedy that the science of sociology or anthropology did not develop after Ibn Khaldun. And Ibn Khaldun was not alone. There were al Biruni, Ibn Battuta, and al Mas’udi, to name a few.


Of these, perhaps al Biruni (973-1048) A.C. deserves the title of father of anthropology (see “A1 Biruni: the First Anthropologist.” If anthropology is a science based on extended participant observation of (other) cultures using the data collected, for value-neutral, dispassionate analysis employing the comparative method, then al Biruni is indeed an anthropologist of the highest contemporary standards. His work on (Hindu) India-Kitab al Hind-remains one of the most important source books for South Asia. The most perceptive of contemporary Hindu scholars, including mavericks like Nirad Chaudhari, quote him approvingly. So, almost a thousand years before Malinmki and Geertz, al Biruni was establishing the science of anthropology.

Therefore the study of society by Muslims developing Islamic sociology or anthropology is not a new or Western science. We may define Islamic anthropology loosely as the study of Muslim groups by scholars committed .to the universalistic principles of Islam, humanity, knowledge, and respectful tolerance, and relating micro village tribal studies in particular - to the larger historical and ideological frames of Islam. Islam is here understood not as theology but sociology. The definition thus does not preclude non-Muslims.

Certain conceptual points must first be clarified. What is the world view of the Muslim anthropologist? In the ideal the Muslim orders his life according to the will of Allah. In actuality this may not be so. Does he see society as motivated by the desire to perform the will of Allah or not? If so, the Muslim must strive to bring the actual into accord with the ideal.
