Farzaneh Ashoorioun has visited Tehran international book fair to find out that in Iran as a Shia Muslim majority country, do people like Jews or Sunnis of Iran have the right to publish their books and be present at Tehran International book fair? Watch video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/5Kv3IPvMbj8
  3. I read a book online, it was a shia book in english, it had knowledge about general things, it is one of the best books i have read but i cant recall its name, only thing i can remember is, the first chapter was about Adam and his creation, early chapters also included a story or two about other prophets as well, and how animal of different habitats used to live together before the first murder of humanity, adam's son killing his brother. This is all I can remember, if anybody has any clue...

  5. Salam alaikum, inshallah everything is well with you! I was wondering if there is a Qur'an you can buy with an english translation (according to shia understanding), transliteration of the arabic text and color coded tajweed? Wasalam
  6. جایگاه زن در نظام سیاسی اسلام By Ayatullah Ishaq Fayaz Plz Plz find this book to me in english... plz.
  7. In the name of god the most merciful I feel like todays muslims are not reading enough books and that has some negative consequences, and for those muslims who wish to read books about their religion they will have a difficult time finding them. When I accepted islam I had a hard time finding good books about islam that are available in normal shops. Of course most books are available online-pdf but It is a lot easier to read them physically and then for example give them to a friend so more people can benefit from the knowledge. My goal with this is to make a list of books about islam that are easily available in non muslim shops for example amazon, ebay,. Etc. So that those muslims that do not have the opportunity to buy from muslim shops can buy these instead. Most of the books are written by shia authors but some by sunnis and sufis. Many new muslims have a very hard time finding good books so I hope this list will help. I have not read all of these books. This list is in no way complete I have written what I know and I hope that other people can help by posting their recommendations and their opinions on the books. 1. Quran Translations: Most translations are from our sunni brothers and those usually only have minor differences with the shia school of thought so there is no problem in buying them. Good Sunni quran translations: Abdullah yusuf ali- Written in old english, otherwise a very good translation, some minor errors. Also the commentaries have been changed so I only recommend the translation. MAS abdul haleem- It is written in simpler english, it has some minor errors otherwise it is very good and easy to read Good shia translations: Muhammed habib shakir(M.H Shakir) – Some say he has copied parts of the translation but there is no copyright in islam so that is not important. the translation is in relatively simple english and it is seen as the best translation from the shia. Ali Quli Qarai- Also a very good translation, Ali Qarai has translated many books into english, the quran translation is written in simple english and is easy to read. Other translations: Arthur Arberry- made a very good translation, he was very good at translating the same word in arabic into the same word in English. However the book is written in older english(thee, thy ..) so it can be difficult to read if you have English as a second language. tafsir(commentary): The Study Quran- It was made by many people one of them being Seyyed hosein nasr a Shia-sufi. The book contains a extremely good and accurate translation but also commentary. The commentary is written by different people and it contains commentaries from shias sunnis and sufis. It is a great book if you want to learn more about the quran and also learn about other Muslims opinions from different perspectives. Understanding surah yasin- written by sheikh. Bahmanpour and it is a commentay on surah yasin. The illuminating lantern, A commentary on the 30th part of the holy quran, by habib al kadhimi- 2.Biographies of the Last Prophet(peace be upon him and his family): The message by jafar subhani – considered to be one of the best biographies of the prophet((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) by a modern shia scholar that is available in english. Muhammed man of god by seyyed nasr – a simple biography of the prophet, It is very short and basic Muhammed by yasin T. al jibouri – also a biography of the prophet 3.Books about other prophets( peace be upon them): Gods emissaries by rizwan arastu- It is a very detailed book about the lives of the prophets. The base for the book was the quran and then he has used hadith to give more details. I think it is one of the most popular and well written book about the prophets by a shia scholar. Mary and jesus in islam by yasin jibouri- The lost testament by mahdi moderassi- a critisiscm of christianity 4.Books about islamic sects: When power and piety collide by mostafa qazwini- a critisicm of caliphate and he wrote it in response to the hate that is against the shias today. Islam by seyyed hosein nasr- A introductin to islam and different schools of thought. Succesion of the prophet by wilferd madelung- A study of islamic caliphate 5.Books about mystisicm: Kernel of the kernel by muhammed husayn tabatabaei- A compilation of his lectures he gave on mysticism and spiritual wayfaring, It is relatively expensive and I have not read it but I have heard a lot of good things about it. Light within me by M.H tabatabaei, M. muttahari, R.Khomeini- a very good book Secrets to divine love by A. Helwa- I think she is a sunni but the book is not controversial and it Is good. 6.Books about tawhid: Allah by yasin jibouri- contains the names and attributes of god. Essential tawhid by sayyid abul qasim radhawi Blessed names and attributes of allah by Abdur rahman kidwai- Is one of the most popular books about tawhid among sunnis. Daily wisdom: selections from the holy quran by Kube publishing- short selections from the quran 7.Books about The twelve imams and ahlulbayt( peace be upon them) : Kerbala and beyond by yasin jibouri imam ali ibn musa by yasin jibouri- biography of the 8:th imam Who Is hussain by mehdi saeed hazari- from medina to karbala in the words of imam husayn the hidden treasure, lady umm kulthum, daughter of imam ali and lady fatima by jaffer ladak- bioghraphy of lady umm kulthum. 8.Books about being muslim in the west: advice for youth by sistani- muslim in west by Seyyed hosein nasr- a very good book about how muslims should see the west Shia muslims: our identity, our vision, and the way forward by sayyid M. B. kashmiri - 9.Books by christians that are suitable for muslims: Gods undertaker by Professor John lennox- the book talks about mathematical problems with evolution and also why monotheism is more suitable with science compared to other views. It is a highly recommended book for anyone wanting to learn more about how ridiculous atheism is and the lies spread by the new-atheist movement. A lot of books have been written by disccovery institute, They are christian that support intelligent design which is not completely compatible with islam but their books contain very good criticism of darwinism. 10.Other books: 101 ways to concentrate in prayer by Ali hilli- a book about how to achieve higher concentration in prayer. Talal alie turfe has written some good books Muneer al khabbazz has also written some good books. Practical advice by abathar tajaldeen The doctor and sheikh debate- I have not read it and I could not find it in pdf format but it seems interesting. Also if you buy a good book do not keep it on you bookshelf instead give it away to a friend and tell Him/Her to give it away after reading it. If you like comment you thoughts about these books and give your recommendations on good books about islam that can be bought in non-muslim shops. I know that this was a very short list but I hope you will benefit from it.
  8. Assalamu alaykum everyone. I’ve heard that the book Then I was guided by Muhammad al-Tijani is a good book especially for reverts to the Ahlulbayt school of thought. Has anyone read it? If so what’s your opinions of it?
  9. Salam, I am wondering, does anyone know any good Shia books that are related specifically/mainly to perfecting your character? Thank you in advance.
  10. Selam love community, there is apparently a book which should have refuted the arguments of Muhammed Al Tijani. Has anyone ever read this book and can tell if these were really refutations or excuses? Wa sallam
  11. Salam, I am wondering, does anyone know any shia books that have a focus on perfecting character? Thank you in advance.
  12. Selam! I stumbled upon a new novel by some indie author on Instagram with a Muslim protagonist. It sounded interesting and there was (is currently) a special promo so the ebook costed only $1! So I bought it with zero expectations and actually read it in one go! It was well written, bits of poetry, really suspenseful with a good story. The book offered several spiritual insights for myself, like why do I worship Allah? What's actual reason? What drives me? Where is the love? And it also motivated me to do something with my life ! There are some books with Muslim characters or Muslim settings, but the main character in this novel, his "super power" is being a believer with truthful spiritual dreams! And his name is Ali! And he fights for Imam Mahdi! I'm not aware of any other author who have mixed technology and religion in this way. Highly recommended! The realistic spiritualism reminded of Paulo Coelho in some ways, minus the sci-fi/tech of course. I'd love to discuss it if anyone read it! Available as paperback and ebook/Kindle: Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NKW87M3 Apple iBooks: http://itunes.apple.com/book/id1452278832
  13. Is there a Tauzeeh-ul-Masail of Ayatullah Khamenei (online or otherwise)? I have heard that he has not published or translated it???? The only thing I can find on the Net is Question and Answer books. How is someone to be a Muqallid of Aga Khamenei without an actual comprehensive Tauzeeh-ul-Masail, rather than these crummy Q&A books? This is the closest thing I've found so far: http://www.islam-pure.de/imam/fatwas/practical00.htm Thanks in Advance
  14. Dear All, I am searching for a book on Imam e zamana (عليه السلام). I am a complete novice to the subject unfortunately. Kindly help me with it. JazakaAllah
  15. Salam everyone, I saw this book named 'Spiritual Prescriptions' by Shaykh Azhar Nasser. I thought I would buy it but the price ($34.99) gave me a not so minor heart attack. Nevertheless, I think this would be a good buy for those interested in the topic. Maybe the brother will send me a free copy or else I will wait for a sale. Given his light hearted approach when giving advice, I believe this would be an easy fun read. https://www.amazon.com/dp/107255996X?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860 The topic of Islamic spirituality has often faced the challenge of remaining comprehensible to a limited few who have been able to decipher the realm of the esoteric and theoretical. The book before you seeks to accessibilize spirituality by distilling difficult concepts into digestible nuggets of wisdom. Contained within these pages are 100 spiritual prescriptions which offer simple cognitive/and or behavioral instructions to help nurture and illuminate the soul. In keeping with the Prophet's (s) final testament of adhering to the Qur'an and his immaculate family, each spiritual prescription is rooted in the Qur'an and the prophetic legacy as transmitted to us through those who knew him best.
  16. Salaam Alaykum, Like Brother Qa'im, I am humbly presenting my new book on the life of our dear Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The book's full title is, "Prophet Muhammad: A Young Adult's Guide to the Early History of Islam." Released on the 17th of Rabi ul-Awwal, 1440 (Nov. 25th, 2018), this book is the most recent publication on the Prophet of Islam (pbuh), compiled from the two most authentic sources, the Holy Qur'an and the narrations of the Holy Ahlulbayt (as). The book is written in simple to understand language, leaving out the peripheral details and the diverse interpretations of events. It makes it a perfect bridge material between the K-5 level books and our more advanced classical works, making it an easy read for the young adults or anybody who wants a thorough but light study on the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The ideal age group would be 'more aware', 10-90 years youth. Warning: As you read this book, get ready to fall in love with your Prophet again and again. This is how good he is, in how little I could capture of his blessed life in this book, in less than three-hundred pages worth. The book is available worldwide in Kindle and Paperback formats through Amazon.com and its affiliates in various countries. If you choose to get it, kindly leave the comments on Amazon.com to help out the next reader searching for the reading material on the life of the Holy Prophet (pbuh). https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KXLVH8J/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U__xOYdCb2EWXTG
  17. Salamalikum, Does anyone know a good book to read that's set in the narrative style on imam ali's life? By narrative style I mean I'd like it to be describing his life through story telling and not just stating the facts. If that's not possible does anyone have any books on the Battle of Karbala in the same narrative style? Thank you.
