  1. Salmon Alaykum, I am looking for seminal books on marriage, divorce and child raring in Shia Islam. Recommendations would be highly appreciated. I am also looking for advice in regard to the purchase of Shia books online or offline anywhere in the United Kingdom. Is there a platform like Kindle and Amazon for Shia books? If not is there a place that has a comprehensive selection from which people can purchase books, books like الزواج في القران و السنة للشهيد السيد عز الدين بحر العلوم Thank you in advance for your answers.
  2. Salam everyone, Now that I started university I have lots of time in between the classes and the way from Uni to home(vice versa). I get bored too easily and my phone isn't really a distraction. So I remembered when I was in high school I loved reading books, even though I didn't read much. So I decided to go back to reading. And because I speak multiple languages, I thought it would be best to read in all those languages not only one. If you have any recommendations please share, because it's hard for me to find a decent book. (Fiction, romans, historical, Non fiction) French, Dutch, English, Arabic ps: not Ulysses type of books lol
  3. Sallam, Peace and blessings on all. I will keep inquiry short as I am actually looking for some way to have the valuable books that I have be translated and published in Urdu. The books include the works of, Ibn Sina, Al-Biruni, Mulla Sadra, Farabi and Allama Nawabakhti. So, if anyone have any information regarding how this can be done please do share your valuable thoughts. JazakAllah
  4. I would like a recommendation for books, outside of the Noble Qur'an, for a non muslim that is considering Islam and becoming a shia in particular. I am particularly looking for good books on Prayer, SHia Spirituality, Lifestyle, and Theology. Is there a good english translation of shia hadith in a hardbound set?
  5. Anyone need or want a few website links to some pretty good stuff? If so, you can have the ones below: http://nudba.com/wp/ (Shia video site) http://www.almizan.org/ (Tafsir Al-Mizan) http://islamicmobility.com/ (download free Islamic e-books in seconds) http://hadithdatabank.com/ (Hadith database of Ahl-ul-bayt) http://www.theislamicseminary.org/wp/ (full volumes of Al-Kafi) http://www.wikishia.net/ (An online encyclopedia of the school of Ahl al-Bayt Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã https://www.al-islam.org/ (Digital Islamic Library) Let me know of any I might want
  6. InshAllah you will all benefit by these sources: Intercession in The Holy Quran: "No intercessor can plead with Him except after His permission."-Qur'an 10:3 Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His permission?-Quran 2:255 On that Day, no intercession shall avail, except the one from whom Allah the Most Gracious has given permission and whose word is acceptable to Him-Qur'an 20:109 And they cannot intercede, except for him with whom He is pleased-Qur'an 21:28 None shall have the power of intercession except such a one as has received permission or a promise from Allah the Most Gracious.-Qur'an 19:87 Intercession with Him profits not except for he whom He permits-Qur'an 34:23 We sent no messenger but to be obeyed by the leave of Allah. If they who have been unjust to themselves had come to you (Prophet Muhammad) and begged Allah's forgiveness, and the Messenger had begged forgiveness for them - indeed, they would have found Allah All-Forgiving, Most Merciful-Qur'an 4:64 (The brothers of Yusuf) said, 'O our father! Ask forgiveness from Allah for our sins. Indeed, we have been sinners.' He said, 'I will ask my Lord for forgiveness for you. Verily, He, only He, is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful-Qur'an 12:97-98 Intercession of Prophet Mohammad (Sawa) In this Hadith the Prophet(saws) intercedes for this blind man: A blind man came to the Prophet and said: "Invoke Allah for me that he help me." He replied: If you wish I will delay this, and it would be better for you, and if you wish I will invoke Allah the Exalted (for you)." He said:"Then invoke him." The Prophet said to him: idhhab fa tawadda', wa salli rak`atayn thumma qul -- "Go and make an ablution, pray two rak`at, then say: "O Allah, I am asking you (as'aluka) and turning to you (atawajjahu ilayka) with your Prophet Muhammad (bi nabiyyika Muhammad), the Prophet of mercy; O Muhammad (ya Muhammad), I am turning with you to my Lord regarding my present need / I am asking my Lord with your intercession concerning the return of my sight (inni atawajjahu bika ila rabbi fi hajati hadhih -- another version has: inni astashfi`u bika `ala rabbi fi raddi basari) so that He will fulfill my need; O Allah, allow him to intercede (with you) for me (allahumma shaffi`hu fiyya)." Sunni References: -Ahmad (4:138 #17246-17247), -Tirmidhi (hasan sahih gharib -- Da`awat Ch. 119) -Ibn Majah (Book of Iqamat al-salat wa al-sunnat, Ch. on Salat al-hajat #1385), -Nasa'i (`Amal al-yawm wa al-laylat p. 417-418 #658-660), -al-Hakim (1:313, 1:526), -Tabarani in al-Kabir, -Rigorously authenticated as sound (sahih) by nearly fifteen hadith masters -including Ibn Hajar, Dhahabi, Shawkani, and Ibn Taymiyya. My intercession will be for the people who committed the cardinal sins (al-kaba'ir) except shirk and dhulm (polytheism and oppression) Kanz al-Ummal, al-Muttaqi al-Hindi The intercessors are five: the Qur'an, near relatives, trusts (amanah), your Prophet, and the family of your Prophet Kanz al-Ummal, al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, hadith #39041 Many of the narrators of hadith narrate a prayer (du'a) from the Holy Prophet (pbuh&hf) which begins: "O my Lord! I turn to you by your Prophet, the Prophet of Mercy (Allahumma, inni atawajjahu ilayka bi nabiyyika nabi al-rahma...)." Then it says: "O Muhammad! I turn to Allah by you to solve my difficulties." Ibn Majah; al-Nisa'i; Tirmidhi; al-Husn al-Hasin, ibn al-Juzri Umar Invoking Intercession: Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 17, Number 123: Narrated Anas: Whenever drought threatened them, ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab, used to ask Al-Abbas bin ‘Abdul Muttalib to invoke Allah for rain. He used to say, “O Allah ! We used to ask our Prophet to invoke You for rain, and You would bless us with rain, and now we ask his uncle to invoke You for rain. O Allah ! Bless us with rain.” And so it would rain. Intercession Done by The Son of Umar: It is narrated that the feet of 'Abdullah ibn 'Umar al-Khattab became disabled and would no longer carry him. After being told to call upon the closest people to his heart, he said: "Wa Muhammada!" His feet were cured and worked properly again. Shifa' al-Asqam, al-Samhudi Intercession of Sahabi Umar Ibn Ibrahim Al-Khatib narrates in Tarikh Baghdad that the truthful (saduq) qadi al-Husayn ibn `Ali al-Saymari narrated to them, that the trustworthy (thiqa) Imam `Umar ibn Ibrahim [ibn Ahmad] al-Muqri told him, that the trustworthy Shaykh Makram ibn Ahmad told them, that `Umar ibn Ishaq ibn Ibrahim [status?] told them, that the trustworthy Shaykh `Ali ibn Maymun told them: ‘I heard al-Shafi`i say: “I swear I seek the blessing of Abu Hanifa (inni la’atabarraku bi-Abi Hanifa) and come to his grave every day"’ meaning as a visitor. “Whenever I have a certain need I pray two rak`as then I come to his grave and ask Allah Most High for my need at his grave, and little time passes until it is fulfilled.” Narrated by al-Khatib in Tarikh Baghdad (1:123)cf. al-Kawthari in his Maqalat (p. 453) and by Ibn Abi al-Wafa’ in Tabaqat al-Hanafiyya (p. 519) through al-Ghaznawi. Imam al-Haytami cites it in the thirty-fifth chapter of his book on Imam Abu Hanifa entitled al-Khayrat al- Hisan. Fatwas on the Permissibility of Intercession By Ahlus-Sunnah Scholars: All jurists including Imami, Shafi'i, Maliki, and later-day Hanafi scholars as well as others such as the Hanbalis, are unanimous on the permissibility of this way of supplication, whether it was in the lifetime of the Prophet (s), or whether it is after his passing away. 1. Sharh al-Mawahib, vol. 8, p. 304; 2. al-Majmu', vol. 8, p. 274; 3. Ibn 'Abidin, vol. 5, p.254; 4. al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah, vol. 1, p. 266 and vol. 5, 318; 5. Fath al-Qadir, vol. 8, p. 297, 298 6. al-Futuhat al-Rabbaniyyah 'ala al-Azkar al-Nabawiyyah, vol. 5, p. 36 Imam Malik urged an Abbaside Khalifa to seek the tawassal of Rasulullah (s) The Abbasid caliph, Mansur al-Dawaniqi, once asked Imam Malik ibn Anas whether he should turn towards the grave of the Prophet (s) or face the Qiblah for supplication? Malik answered him: Why do you want to turn away from the Prophet (s) when he (Prophet Muhammad (s)) is the wasilah (means) for you and for your father Adam, towards Allah on the Day of Resurrection. Turn to him (the Prophet) and seek his intercession (shafa'at). -Al-Mughni ma' al-Sharh, vol. 3, p. 588; -al-Sharh al-Kabir ma' al-Mughni, vol. 3, p. 494; -al-Qadi `Iyad in al-Shifa (2:92-93) Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal advocated making tawassal through Rasulullah (s) The correct position of the [Hanbali] madhhab is that it is permissible in one's supplication (du`a) to use as means a pious person, and it is said that it is desirable (mustahabb). Imam Ahmad said to Abu Bakr al-Marwazi:yatawassalu bi al-nabi fi du`a'ih -- "Let him use the Prophet as a means in his supplication to Allah -al-Insaf fi ma`rifat al-rajih min al-khilaf `ala madhhab al-Imam al-mubajjal Ahmad ibn Hanbal (3:456): Imam Shaafi would make tawassal through the Ahlul bayt (as) - Ibn Hajr Haytami - al-Sawa`iq al-muhriqa li ahl al-dalal wa al-zandaqa (eg page 180) and al-Khayrat al-hisan (p. 69) Imam Shafi`i made tawassul through the Family of the Prophet (Ahl al-Bayt) when he said Al al-nabi dhari`ati wa hum ilayhi wasilati arju bihim u`ta ghadan bi yadi al-yamini sahifati The Family of the Prophet are my means and my intermediary to him. Through them I hope to be given my record with the right hand tomorrow. -Ibn Hajr Haytami, in Al-Sawa`iq al-muhriqa li ahl al-dalal wa al-zandaqa (eg page 180) -al-Khayrat al-hisan (p. 69) This has also been found in Diwan al-Shafi`i as edited by `Umar Faruq al-Dabbagh (Beirut: Dar al-arqam, n.d.) p. 50. The pilgrim should face the shrine of the Messenger of Allah (s), make him a means (tawassul) towards reaching God and seek his wasilah as intercession (shafa'at), in the same manner as the Bedouin who visited the Prophet's shrine and standing beside it said: Peace unto you O Messenger of Allah, I have heard Allah has said: ...Had they, when they had wronged themselves, come to you and asked Allah's forgiveness and the Apostle had asked forgiveness for them, they would certainly have found Allah Most-Propitious, Most-Merciful. (Holy Qur'an 4: 64). Therefore, I have come to you for forgiveness of my sins and seeking your intercession with Allah. -Al-Majmu', vol. 8, p. 274; -Fayd al-Qadir, vol. 2, p. 134; -I'anah al-Talibiyyin, p. 315. Ibn Qudamah Hanbalis tawassal supplication before the tomb of Rasulullah (s):- Ibn Qudamah Hanbali, defining the manner of pilgrimage to the shrine of the Prophet (s), writes in the book al-Mughni Stand beside the tomb of the Prophet (s), and say: I have come to you for forgiveness of my sins and to seek your intercession with Allah. 1. Al-Mughni ma' al-Sharh, vol. 3, p. 588; 2. al-Sharh al-Kabir ma' al-Mughni, vol. 3, p. 494 Imam Ghazzali al Shaafiis tawassal supplication before the tombs of Rasulullah (s) and Ahlul bayt (as) Imam of Ahlul Sunnah Abdul Hamid Ghazzali allotted a special section in his book Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din concerning the manners of pilgrimage to the shrine of the Prophet (s) in order to repent and seek forgiveness from Allah. He stated: The Prophet should be made the means (wasilah) and the intercessor (shafi'), and with face turned towards the tomb, the pilgrim should implore Allah for the sake and position of the Prophet with the words: "O Allah, indeed You have said, Had they, who had wronged themselves, come to you and asked Allah's forgiveness and the Apostle had asked forgiveness for them, they would have certainly found Allah Most-Propitious, Most-Merciful (Holy Qur'an 4:64); Al-Ghazzali also added: It is recommended the pilgrim should go daily to the Baqi' Cemetery and after saluting the Prophet (s), make pilgrimage to the tombs of (Imam) Hasan ibn 'Ali, (Imam) 'Ali ibn al-Husayn, (Imam) Muhammad ibn 'Ali and (Imam) Ja'far ibn Muhammad (Allah be pleased with them), and also perform the Salat in the Mosque of Fatimah (Allah be pleased with her). -Ihya' 'Ulum al-Din, vol. 1, pp. 258-261

  12. Salaam alaykom, This is my first post on this forum, so forgive me if I am not doing something right (like posting in the appropriate place). We have just launched ten books on Shi'a Islam (available on Amazon.com), and I would like to take this opportunity to get the word out to the community so that those who have an interest in the books can go and check them out. What is important to note is that all of these books have been written or translated by the Shi'a scholar Blake Archer Williams and are of the highest standards, both in terms of their scholarship as well as in terms of the language and style of the translations, which is both native and scholarly (with plenty of explanatory notes of Islamic keywords). I am not really chat savvy,so forgive me if I do not respond to any questions. I will try to do so, of course. But if you would like to be sure to get an answer, it would be good for you to email me your post also. I can be reached at LionOfNajafPublishers [at sign] gmail.com. Here is the press release. Thank you for spreading the word, and happy reading! Greetings from Lion of Najaf Publishers, We are pleased to announce our acquisition of the exclusive rights to publish all of the works of the Shi'a scholar Blake Archer Williams.

Nine of these are Blake Archer Williams' superlative translations of scholarly works on Shi'a Islam, primarily in the field of creedal beliefs, including the magisterial Regency of the Magisterium, which is Mr. Williams' "exegetical rendering" of Ayatollah Javadi-e Amoli's book, Velayat-e Faqih. Creedal Foundations of Waliyic Islam makes up the tenth in this first batch of ten books, which is Blake Archer Williams' full-length introduction to the theory of Velayat-e Faqih approached from the perspective of Islam's creedal bases (and how the Islamic creed gives rise to this theory). The following hyperlinks will take you to the Amazon pages of each book. We are told that it takes "about 2 to 3 weeks" for the "Look Inside" feature of Amazon to be activated and made available, so do check back with them. Meanwhile, complete descriptions of the book contents are available presently toward the bottom of each webpage under the heading Product Details. 1. Creedal Foundations Of Walīyic Islam 2. The Regency of the Magisterium 3. His Eminence, the Imām al-Mahdī 4. The Preeminence of Imām Ali 5. War and Military Ethics in Shī‘a Islam 6.

  16. Latest publication from the Boss: التدابير النبوية لحفظ الرسالة الإلهية (The Prophetic measures to save/protect the Divine Message & Khilafah) It is widely accepted by people with foresight and at least 3 brain cells, that prevention is more sensible than trying to find a cure. It is also accepted by all Muslims that the Holy Prophet (s), is the wisest being to have ever existed/will ever exist, in all universes, pre-history, post-history, across all dimensions, and all worlds. Therefore, one might assume, that he would adopt preventive measures to save the prophetic message in the face of the expected coup by the sick-hearted and brain-dead. This is what this book tries to present. A set of clear measures and carefully planned procedures, without which no evidence of authentic Mohammedan Islam would have remained today. http://archive.alhaydari.com/ebook/ar/tadabir.pdf (only 600 pages)
  17. (salam) http://www.ziyaraat.net/findbook.asp Share links you know please.
  18. Salam to all, Can anyone please guide me to Shia books or resources in Hindi? pdf or online. Thanks to all.
  19. Salam alaykum, all I am wondering whether any of our scholars have used the word "fisq" to refer to homosexuality. I have tried YouTube but honestly do NOT have the patience for it. (I never have.) In addition, I have clicked Ayatullah Sayyid Abdul Husayn Dastghaib Shirazi's text "Greater Sins" to look around there. Even so, any help in connecting me to a scholarly work in which the author or speaker uses the word "fisq" to describe homosexuality would be welcome - including any references to "Greater Sins." After all, two minds are better than one. Thank you! -Freedom
  20. Salam, A few years ago, I read his book The Divine Guide in Early Shi'ism: The Sources of Esotericism in Islam. Has anyone else read any of his books or writings? His books are quite academic and not easy to read, but fascinating, nonetheless. Every claim is cited and supported by reference to early shi'a books. So, it is clear that he does comprehensive research for his books. Currently, I'm reading The Spirituality of Shi'i Islam: Belief and Practices. This book like his previous book is fascinating to read, too. Both books will certainly shake some of your core default beliefs, yet it's not easy to argue against his views considering his meticulous approach to research and writing. If you have read any of his writings, let me know what you think. I'm curious.
  21. Salamualkum wa rahmatallahi wa baraktu. I am wondering if any brother or sisters know of any books or sources where I can learn to perfect my Deen. I am talking about more than a rasallah. A book or source that will list every( or as much that would reasonably fit in a book) makrooh action and every mustahab action. Basically to teach you the social conduct of the ahlul bayt, their manners and even very minor things that they avoided because they are makrooh such as blowing on your food because it shows impatience(just an example I don't know of its truth). As I am living in the west I need as many reminders and acts as worship as possible to keep me away from the haram that is everywhere. Thank you very much for your time I really appreciate it. Salamualkum.
  22. al-Salaamu 'Alaykum, Ramadan Mubarak! Since the holy month of Ramadan is the month of revelation, and the very first word to be revealed was "iqra!" "read!" I decided to do something worthwhile in this holy month and try to share my hundreds of Islamic books by giving short reviews of them, one Islamic book review per night of the holy month of Ramadan. So 30 Nights 30 Books! I have decided to select books at random, covering various Islamic topics, hopefully this project of mine will be of benefit. Please give me comments and suggestions for this is the very first time I'm making such videos. Night 1: The Holy Qur'an, Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation

  24. (salam) I am hoping to bring to your attention a side-project I have been working on that makes available Shia books in e-reader format (epub/mobi). The site is very much in active development, minimalistic, and temporarily slow, but you can access it at: http://www.shiavault.com When you click on a book, you'll see the buttons to download the ebooks in both e-reader formats (picture below). Alternatively you can read the book online. I am sharing this project early on to receive feedback from others. I personally created the site because I wanted to use e-readers to read when offline and on any device (e.g. Kindle, Cellphone, Laptop), and more importantly, to be able to highlight and take notes as I read. Reading to learn is different than reading casually, and I have found existing sites to lack this critical e-book format. Thus, I re-used existing content online and packaged them for e-readers. I hope you agree that this is an important need and should be useful for numerous people. If you've never used an e-reader application before, you can start with Kindle by downloading it here. Kindle will use the .mobi format. There is another reason behind it, though more technical. The project will be Open Source and soon shared on GitHub, both the website and its content (unless something restricts me). For those that understand, the content will be in basic flat-file structure with Markdown syntax, which makes it easy for any member to contribute fixes and additions with the benefit of GitHub's public collaboration capabilities. For those that do not know, GitHub is the de facto standard for collaborative software engineering and is the tool that almost all developers use to work on Open Source projects. The vision is to have a minimal central authority for the site, and to have anyone contribute. I personally believe the easier it is to contribute, and being Open Source is the way we need to go forward with sharing knowledge. I look forward to hearing from you and receiving your feedback. Thank you, Kindle view: iBooks view (different book):
  25. Sallam Alikum, and I sent my condolences to the Muslim Ummah for the tragic death anniversary of the Holy Lady Fatima (AS). I have been looking all over the place to find where Fatima Al-Zahra is mentioned in mainly Sahih Muslim and Bukhari about Omar Ibn Alkhattab attacking the house of Bibi Fatima? Can someone help locate these narration? Also other than the reason of "different translations" what do you say about this? http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?37869-Did-Umar-(R-A-)-tried-burn-the-house-of-Fatima-(R-A-)
