The Noble Men Who Met The Messenger (Hardcover) The Noble Men Who Met the Messenger is an encyclopedia of more than 850 noble companions of the Messenger of Allah ?, those from mankind and the jinn. This book was extracted from the classic history book Attainment of the Objective in Distinguishing the Companions by Hafidh Ibn Hajar Asqalani, with notes taken from The Lives of Noble Figures by Imam adh-Dhahabi. The Prophet (?) said, "The best people are those of my generation, and then those who will come after them (the next generation), and then those who will come after them (i.e. the next generation),……Sahih Al Bukhari Vol. 8, Book 76, Hadith 437
Blurb: Indeed, the Prophet ? was eloquent when he spoke; sincere when he admonished. He never exceeded the best of words. Holding mastery over his speech whenever he spoke. He directed his speech with the best of precision and controlled his words in the best way, through which he would attract the wayward hearts and eyes. The speech of the eloquent cannot be likened to his speech in eloquence; for his speech far surpasses that.
This is because he is the most eloquent of the people in tongue and speech and the best of them in delivery. Even though this was the state of the Arabs in general, and the status of their language for which they were praised, especially the Quraysh, to whom the Qur’an was revealed—initially—in their dialect; to the point that he ? asked his Lord for more so Allah increased its modes as a bounty from Him.
Blurb: Permissible amusement in Islam is that which abides by the legislative guidelines; it has benefit in it for the individual and society. It is free from that which is impermissible and does not lead to it, and it is free from the fields of conjecture, luck and other than it from the aforementioned guidelines in the treatise.
?Ali Ibn Ab? ??lib is the cousin of the Messenger (May All?h exalt his station and grant him peace). F?timah is the daughter of the Messenger (May All?h exalt his station and grant him peace), the most prestigious lady in Paradise (May All?h be pleased with her) as stated by the Prophet (May All?h exalt his station and grant him peace). Additionally, the Prophet (May All?h exalt his station and grant him peace) said about ?Ali (May All?h be pleased with him):
“You are in the same position with relation to me as Aaron (H?r?n) was concerning Moses but with (this explicit difference) that there is no prophet after me.”
He said this when he delegated him the responsibility of [Mad?nah] when Muslims were away in the Tab?k conquest. So, he said: O Messenger of All?h! You leave me behind with women and children? The Prophet (May All?h exalt his station and grant him peace) said the above narration to warm his heart. It is also because Aaron (H?r?n) took M?s?’s place among his people, as he said:
“Replace me among my people.” [S?rah ?Al-A?r?f (7):142]
The previous ??y?t explains the following statement: “You are in the same position with relation to me as Aaron (H?r?n) was concerning M?s?.”
However, as the Prophet (May All?h exalt his station and grant him peace) feared that anyone would misuse this word and claim that ?Ali is a Prophet like H?r?n, he said:
“but with (this explicit difference) that there is no prophet after me.” This statement highlights the immense protection the Prophet (May All?h exalt his station and grant him peace) dedicated to the prestige of the Message [of Isl?m]. Also, he is concerned about the importance of Tawhid (Isl?mic Monotheism). Certainly, according to the Qur??n and the Sunnah, it is well-known that he is the last of the Prophets, and there is no Prophet after him.
The mistakes outlined are both numerous and varied. From them are: mistakes in beliefs, in clothing, in changing the appearance of the body, in the way they walk, concerning food and drink, mistakes related to the way in which they sleep and awake, free-mixing, holidays and events, listening (i.e. to music and the likes of it), mistakes concerning traveling, and the condition in which one goes to the doctor.
The Prophet's Prayer Described By Shaikh Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaani
A more scholarly description of the daily Prayer, this book would be considered a more advanced study of the daily Salat. With numerous references to classical sources, each aspect of Salat is presented from the lens of the time of the Prophet (PBUH) himself.
Concise Scholarly Commentary on The Foundation of The Sunnah And The Creed of The Religion Selected from the works of Shaykh Ahmad al-Najmi, Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhali, Shaykh Rabi al-Madkhali, Shaykh Ubayd al-Jabri
“I asked my father (d. 277H) and Abu Zur’ah (d. 264H) about the beliefs of the People of the Sunnah regarding the fundamentals of the Religion, and what they both found the scholars upon in all of the various lands, and what they believe as it relates to these affairs. So they responded, saying: We found the scholars in all of the various lands: Hijaz, Iraq, Egypt, Sham and Yemen, so their creed was…”
An important point: These issues that al-Hafiz, the Muhaddith, the Imam, Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahman b. Muhammad, who is well known as Ibn Abu Hatim, learnt from the two renowned memorizers and scholars of Hadith – his father and Abu Zur’ah, and the fact that both of them conveyed these matters from the Imams of Ahl al-Sunnah – proves that they were united upon these beliefs and that they did not differ regarding any of them.

A compilation of small treatises regarding companionship, collected from the works and speeches of some of the noble scholars of our times.
Al-Hafiz Abu Hatim Muhammad bin Hibban Al-Busti (rahimahullah) said: “Indeed; from the greatest indications upon understanding what it is a person is upon by way of his fluctuations and his dormancy is: taking into consideration who it is that he converses with and loves. Since a person is upon the religion of his close friend; and the birds of the sky converge on their own likeness.”
(Rawdatul Uqalaa wa Nuzhatul Fudalaa)
Al-Allamah Muhammad bin Salih al-Uthaimin (rahimahullah) said:
“Strive to keep company with a people who are people of good. They show you the right way if you err. They guide you if you are misled. They remind you if you forget. They teach you if you do not know. All of these are from the factors for the increase in Ulamaa.”
This is a summarized translation of Shaikh Abdul Muhsin Al Qasim’s (The Imam and the Khateeb of the Prophet’s Masjid in Madinah) book titled ‘Tayseerul Wusool’ which is a commentary on the book of Shaikh Muhammed ibn Abdul Wahhab’s Thalathatul Usool (The Three Questions of the Grave). It is a commentary on the three questions of the grave which every human being will be asked in his grave.

Allah,the'Most High said: "Among His Signs is that He created spouses for you of your own kind so that you may find tranquility in them. And He has placed love and mercy between you. Verily in that are Signs for those who reflect." Surah Ar-Rum, 30:21
The Messenger of Allah (a) said, "When a person gets Married, he has completed half of his religion; so, let him. fear Allah with regard to the other half."Bayhaqi, Shu'ab al-Iman, Shal Al-Albani Hasan Li Ghayrihi, Sahih al-Targhib waq-Tarhib (1916)
Marriage is an important institution in the great religion of Islam. Humans have been treated as social Creatures, requiring interactions with each other in order to survive.Harmoniously coexisting in love and mercy amongst men and women were created To complement one another in companionship.
The family as a basic social institution is the cornerstone of society, and strong marriages are the basis for strong communities.

This will help them to understand the meaning of these supplications which are taken from the Qur’an and the Prophet’s traditions. This will also help them to achieve an improved state in their worship of Allah.
The Sunnah is the most authentic explanation and elaboration of the Word of Allah. Many worthy collections of Hadith of the Prophet have been compiled and translated into English. Yet very few, however, have been compiled especially for children and young people, and this collection is intended to fill this gap.
This collection presents twenty sound Ahadith that will appeal to all ages, but are especially suitable for young people, taking into consideration their needs and interests. In translation and brief commentary that follows each Hadith, an effort has been made to use plain language and explanation for the ordinary mind. Moreover, useful exercises have also been added. In this way, this collection will be greatly beneficial for the young Muslims.
This small book has been the collaborative effort of many. It is our hope that this collection of Ahadith will serve as a useful introduction to the timeless wisdom of the last Prophet of Islam both at home and the classroom.
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, May Allah bless a man who hears a Hadith from us, and memorizes it so that he can convey it to others, for perhaps he is conveying it to one who will understand it better than him, and perhaps the one who conveys knowledge does not understand it himself.
“The Conditions, Pillars and Requirements of Prayer” is a brief treatise designed for easy memorization and retaining since the author lists each point briefly followed by its proof from the Qur’an and Sunnah
Islam gives importance to every affair of life. Thus, there is not an aspect of your life, O Muslim, except that Islam clarifies and explains it. And this is from its concern for rectifying and unifying the community. And because the rectification of the community follows the rectification of the family, and the unity of the community is a result of the unity of the family, and the happiness of the family is connected to the spouses, Islam gives a great deal of importance to the spouses. As it relates to the rights of the spouses, there are rights before the engagement, rights at the time of the engagement, rights at the time of the marriage contract, and rights which remain throughout the affair of marriage.
The spiritual and worldly life of a Muslim is focused on Allah. Succcess in both entails knowing Allah, Loving Him, trusting Him and worshipping Him alone. It requires the Muslim to learn his religion, discipline his soul and refine his conduct. The Muslim must have firm faith that everything that hapens to him in this life is good for him, that his Lord would never decree anything that would be detrimental and, as such, he is required to be patient and steadfast in the face of adversity and grateful at times of ease. In this treatise, the author, ibn Rajab sets out o explain the advice the Prophet(s.a.w) imparted to ibn 'Abbas (radiyAllahu 'anhuma), ''Safeguard Allah and He Will safeguard you. Safeguard Allah and you will find Him in front ou you. Know Allah in times of ease and Hie will know you in times of hardship. When you ask, ask Allah. When you seek aid, turn to Allah. The Pen has dried (after having written)all that will occur...
In this age of materialism, consumerism and extreme liberalism, the Muslim often finds himself at a loss, at odds to the ebb and flow of society, and holding to values, divinely revealed, that contrast starkly with the values held by many around him. He or she is looked at askance, accused of being backward, non-conformist and refusing to integrate. In the face of peer pressure, the resolve of some may weaken, the result being a watering-down of one's adherence to Islam and the values it calls to.
The Prophet warned us that a time would come in which Islam and the Muslims would be beheld as strangers, not just by non-Muslims but by many Muslims as well! He informed us that days were coming in which trying to keep hold of one's religion would be like holding red hot coals, and he stressed the paramount importance of holding fast to Islam in its pristine purity during that time, stating that this, and only this, was the path to success in this life and the next.
This book is a compilation of two tracts which explain the hadith, 'Islam began as something strange and it will return to being strange just as it began, so tuba for the strangers!' It is hoped that it will be a source of comfort and inspiration for the Muslim who is striving to follow Islam at a time when the Muslim could well feel alienated and alone in the world.
The first is a treatise penned by the great Imam, Al-Ajurri (d.330H), a scholar known for his deep knowledge and piety, his quality being recognised by all. The second is a monograph written by the Imam, Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali (d.795H), a scholar praised extensively for his vast knowledge, ascetism and expertise in the Hanbali school of thought. An introduction has been added from the words of Shatibi and an appendix from ibn Al-Qayyim's monumental Madarij al-Salikin.
When the Messenger of Allah was sent to the polytheists to call to this statement, ‘None has the right to be worshipped save Allah,' they understood from it that made them reject it, oppose the messenger, and all those who believed in it. What was this understanding? Was it the understanding that Allah existed and was One? They already believed in this. They believed that He was the creator, the nourisher, the sustainer, in His hands was the control of all affairs, and in His hands was life and death.
It was said to al-Hasan, ‘People say that whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped,' shall enter Paradise.' He said, ‘Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped,' and fulfils its obligations and meets its requirements shall enter Paradise.'
Wahb ibn Munabbih was asked, ‘Is not the testification that ‘none has the right to be worshipped save Allah' the key to Paradise?' He replied, ‘Of course, buy every key has its teeth: if you bring a key that has teeth, the door shall open; but if not, it will not.'
My Brothers! Strive, today, to your utmost in actualising Tawhid, for nothing else can take you to Allah. Be desirous for establishing its rights for nothing else will save you from the punishment of Allah. The testification of Tawhid has many great benefits, it is not possible to enumerate them all, however, the author mentions fifty-five benefits of it.
This small treatise deals with the correct and accurate meaning of the testification of Tawhid and with an extremely beneficial appendix - They Types of Hearts - by al- Hafiz ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah
Bukhari records on the authority of Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said, "Your actions alone will not save any of you." They asked, Messenger of Allah, not even you?, He replied, 'Not even me, unless, Allah were to envelop me in His mercy. Be firm; steadfast and balanced; and journey [to Allah] in the beginning of the day, the end of the day, and a portion of the latter part of the night. Moderation, moderation! Through this you will attain your goal!"
He also recorded this Hadith in another place with the wording, 'This religion is easy, none makes it hard upon himself except that it overwhelms him; therefore be firm, steadfast, and balanced; upon which have glad tidings! Seek help in this by journeying [to Allah] at the beginning of the day, at the end of the day, and a portion of the latter part of night.'
He also records on the authority of Aishah that the Prophet said, Be firm, steadfast, and balanced upon which have glad tidings for indeed actions alone will not cause one to enter Paradise. They asked Messenger of Allah, not even you? He replied, Not even me, unless Allah were to envelop me in His forgiveness and mercy
He also records on her authority that the Prophet said, Be Firm, steadfast and balanced: know that your actions alone will not be a cause for your entry into Paradise and that the most beloved actions to Allah are those that are done continuously and persistently, even if they be few. These noble ahadith details a great and important principle from which stem many issues related to the journey to Allah while wayfaring along His Path.
Some of the Salaf said, 'The Hereafter consists either of Allah's forgiveness or the Fire; and this world is either a source of Allah's protection or a source of destruction.' On his deathbed, Muhammad ibn Waasi bid farewell to his companions saying, 'Peace be upon you, either to the Fire or to the forgiveness of Allah.
