Your Fav Book?

Hey,

Im sure your all dedicated islamic readers thus share your best, most interesting, most valuable book in this post.

Please provide name of the book and name of the author inshallah! Wink

Dont repeat books mentioned my other members ... so we can get a variety!

I'll begin....my best book I have read (and will inshallah study in depth one day) is the beautiful QURAN: Author: ALLAH SUBHANATALLAH Smile

Your Turn...

A book called "Shirk" written by Mohmmad Khan. very interesting to see what the ummah gets up to these days :twisted: also very distressing :evil:

The revival magazine is pretty good (excluding the shirk) keep up the good work Ed Biggrin (but exlude the shirk mate :? )

What you put in the hearts of others; is what goes back into your own heart…

hae you eveer read The Revival Magazine?

Shirk? where? and that is if you use your bastardised version of shirk aswell!

and, may I ask again, that you learn what shirk is. Here is a hint: associating another to god.

Shamaa'il Tirmidhi.

I reading Chris Eubank Bio at the Mo. It brillant, proper funny bloke, even though he a bit full of himself. I see that he credit himself with all his success, which is funny for a boxer. But it a cool book I love to meet him.

"A true Muslim is thankful to Allah in prosperity, and resigned to His will in adversity."

I remeber muslimsis mentioning buying the biography of Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani (ra), let me know how u find it in terms of the writing style, is it hard to understand or pretty easy...after readin a glimpse of Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani (ra) life in "secrets of secrets" it got me interested. I always wanted to buy the full biography but never got round to it. So it would be good to hear if the book is easy to read.

There's this small book with Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani's teachings (or was it Imam Ghizali?)

it starts with, 'My son...' and then 1 or 2 small pages of Very wise words he would pass onto others

Razor recommended it

ive got a massive life story book on Khalid bin Waleed R.A. (the sword of Allah), lukin good

The Lover is ever drunk with love;
He is free, he is mad,
He dances with ecstasy and delight.

Caught by our own thoughts,
We worry about every little thing,
But once we get drunk on that love,
Whatever will be, will be.

I only brought the “Necklace of Gems” a few days ago, and have only read the first few chapters.

It’s a very thick book and I wouldn’t say its any more or less complicated to read then “The secrets of secrets”.

If you can read “the secrets of secrets” then you can def read his biography as well….

I believe it’s the most comprehensive biography available in English. And it’s a must have for those who look up to Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jillani (ra).

...Your a Uni student I'm sure you can hack it...But its not a book that can be finished over night.

I think thats Luqman's advice to his son?

Or it must be the book by Imam Ghazali titled "My beloved son"-thats a great book.

Can you give me a review when you finish the book, i always found Khalid bin Waleed (ra) and Hazrat Umar (ra) very interesting characters. Especially after reading Yashmati signature.

Read a book called "The Breadwinner" by Deborah Ellis.

It's about this 11 year old girl named Parvana who is living in Afghanistan during the taliban rule. Her father is arrested and as she has no older brothers, her family decides to pass her off a s aboy so she can go out to work.

This book was excellent, finished it in the same day (It isnt as long as most books). It made me think how lucky I am to have shelter, food and clothes. There's a sequel aswell to this book (currently reading it) called "Parvanas journey" which basically follows up the 1st one.

A recommended read.

' Nay, verily! With me is my Lord, He will guide me ' {2662}

Sounds like a good book.

Another one added to my already long list.
