In the Name of the Most High

assalam o 'alaykum ...

here are Islamic Book Stores that i normally browse through

1 www.kazi.org

perhaps the largest Book Store in North America. works that are not only published within the academic Circles, but great works of Islamic Civilizations (al-Farabi, al-Ghazali etc) are translated and published by them. i was able to get books from them that were not available any where else in North America and Canada (english titles though)

2. www.online-Islamic-Store.com

they tend to carry works of all persuasions: seem to be madhab agnostic, so one has to be careful what to pick and choose. those who live in the NY/NJ/CT/PA area, since their store is in MD, the order is shipped and received next day. great service. if you are looking for a specific work, they can even order it for you

3. www.islamic-foundation.com

even though, they tend to have Jama'ati tendencies (Kidwai, Mawdudi, Khurram Murad, Khurshid Ahmed) they have published some brilliant works. 2 of my favorites are 1. Way to the Quran and 2. Ulum al Qur'an, Dennfer. not to forget that they are also devoting time and resources to the translation of Syed Qutb's, 'In the Shade of the Qura'n'.

4. www.waobooks.co.uk

they tend to distribute mostly classical works from within the ahlal sunna perspective. even though they are based in UK shipping worldwide is free. they also carry works from other publishers, i.e Amal Press (which is based out of the UK), and Zaytuna Institute.

5. www.sunnipath.com

has also teamed with Firdous Book store, and there you can also find works, with a traditional bent. oddly enough they tend to have most if not all the translated works into English from al-Buti of Syria. those who are avid readers of sirah works, his monumental work on the 'Life of the Prophet', titled 'Fiqh us Sira' is indeed a unique attempt to deduce principles out of Prophetic life. one other Contemporary scholar who has infact done this sort of work, is the late al-Ghazali of Egypt. though their selection is very very limited.

6. www.antstores.com

for those who want to peek into the customs and works of our Turkish brethren, this is the site that captures the work of the revivalist, Said al-Nursi and most recently Fethullah Gullen. Gullen truly personifies the tradition of tasawwuf as embodied within the Muhammad reality. Gullens influence is far and wide. if one is to pin point the basis of Islamic Revivalism in Turkey, with the specific focus on education (both modern and Islamic), building of institutions, Gullens philosophy has truly served well for the Turkish believers.

most recently, Ali Unal, translated the Quran in English. the foreword was done by Gullen, where he commends Unal on his treatement of bringing to fore shi'ite and ahlal sunna Commentaries within this translation. Shariati, Mutahhari and the Tabatabai are quoted through the work as well. at the end of the translated work, there are specific sections devoted to issues of Contention that are perceived by the West. drawing upon the writings of Mutahhari, one can witness the influnce on Unal. in-fact, Unals exposure to Iranian 'Ulama is not new, particularly in the works preceeding this translation.

lastly, an observation in point.

much of the Book Stores touted here (i.e preceeding my post) are bereft of any exposure to the works of the ahlal sunna. in the post 9-11 World, the work done by the ahlal sunna Scholarship, particualrly american Muslim Scholars, in works like

i. The State We are in, Amal

ii. Speaking for God, Amal (various muslim and non-Muslim Scholars)

iii. Scattered Reflections, imam Zaid Shakir

iv. Confronting the New Orientalism, Shahihd Islam (also his work, 'Is there an Islamic Problem' worth the read)

v. Islam Fundamentalism and the Betrayal of Traditions, without a doubt the single work that best encapsulate traditional Islam (both ahlal sunna and shi'ite) edited by Joseph Lumbard

vi. Islam Under Siege, Akbar Ahmed (brilliant work: examines the crisis in the muslim World utilizing Ibn Khalduns model, i.e of the destruction of the notion of "asbiyyah", i.e cohesion (not to be confused with tribalism). it puts into perspective the dissonance brought about by the Modernity Project. also quick to point to a crisis from "within" of the loss of a spiritual direction, which has exerbated the situation).

i think that, with all due respect, shi'ites need to get out of a "ghetto" mentality and broaden their horizons and see what they can learn from the other side as well.

with God's help nothing is impossible, insha 'Allah

Shias would never accept your theology, but yes it would be beneficial to learn about it.

Try this one:

http://www.neelwafurat.com/

It is very good and contains a lot of books. The only problem is that its search is not that good, so sometimes you cannot find the book while it exists in their database; may be because arabic letters are complicated! Sometimes you can solve this problem by entering the name of the author and see what you get.
