  1. 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.
