Al-Aqida al-Tahawiyya – Arabic text with English translation and commentary

This short treatise on ‘Aqida (Islamic theology) written by Imam al-Tahawi though small in size, is a basic text for all times, listing what a Muslim must know and believe.

The importance of this text lies in the fact that it corroborates the views of Imam Abu Hanifa the founder of the Hanafi school of jurisprudence, that have come down to us from different sources.  Imam  al-Tahawi summarizes  the views  of the great Imam  and  shows  that  they  were  in  conformity   with  the traditional views of the orthodox school.
The doctrines enumerated in this work are entirely derived from the undisputed primary sources of religion, the Qur’an and the confirmed hadith.

This text, representative of the viewpoint of Ahl al-Sunna wa’l Jama’a, has long been the most widely acclaimed, and indeed indispensable, reference work on Muslim beliefs.

This edition includes a brief and simple commentary by Mawlana Fahim Hoosen. The focus in his commentary is explaining the correct belief of a Muslim while avoiding technical discussions and  intricacies of debate around theological issues.

Rules of Tajwīd, is a sequel to the Safar Qāʿidah and part of the comprehensive Safar Learn to Read Series. It may be taught alongside Safar Juz ʿAmma or while a student starts to read the Qurʾān. While reading the book, students will master the application of tajwīd in the passages of the Qurʾān that are to be read to the teacher. The script has been imported directly from the Madīnah Qurʾān which is used worldwide. The text is not colour-coded with Tajwīd rules, so that students are able to read black and white Qurʾāns without such aids. It includes a unique marking code, diary and checklist, designed to keep track of students’ progress and enhance communication between students, parents and teachers.

Tuḥfatul Atfāl
Tajwīd (tr. ‘making something good or better’) is the discipline of proper Qur’anic recitation. It involves pronouncing each letter from its proper point of articulation and giving it its due attributes consistently. It is acquired by listening to those who have mastered it, emulating them, and being tested. Learning the theoretical rules of tajwīd is a communal obligation (Ar. farḍ kifāyah) while practicing it is an individual obligation (Ar. farḍ ʿayn).
This book is a classical poem on tajwīd authored by Sheikh Sulaymān al-Jamzūrī’.


Al-Muqaddimah al-Jazariyyah
An introductory poem authored by Imam Ibn Al-Jazari (d.833AH) is a compilation of Tajweed rules in over 100 lines of poetry (in Arabic). This is a very well known book in the sciences of Quranic recitation.

Fiqh
Manhaj al Sālikīn

Tafsir Ibn Kathir
The Qur’an is the revelation of Allah’s Own Words for the guidance of His creatures. Since the Qur’an is the primary source of Islamic teachings, the correct understanding for the Qur’an is necessary for every Muslim. The Tafsir of Ibn Kathir is the most renowned and accepted explanation of the Qur’an in the entire world. In it one finds the best presentation of Ahadith, history, and scholarly commentary. Tafsir Al-Qur’an Al-Azim, which is famous by the title Tafsir Ibn Kathir, by Al-Hafiz. Abu Al-Fida’ ‘Imad Ad-Din Isma’il bin ‘Umar bin Kathir Al-Qurashi Al-Busrawi (d. 774 H.), is the most popular interpretation of the Qur’an in the Arabic language, and the majority of the Muslims consider it to be the best source based on Qur’an and Sunnah.
Hadith
In 13th Century Damascus, the renowned Hadith Scholar, juristic expert, academic luminary and pious ascetic, Imam Muhyi ad-Din Abu Zakariyya Yahya ibn Sharaf an-Nawawi set himself the task of compiling a short collection of rigorously authenticated Hadith, which will comprise for its reader a way to the hereafter. The resulting Riyad as-Salihin is a collection of almost two thousand Hadiths on numerous subjects, selected from the Sahih collections and other canonical books of the Sunnah. This blessed book, containing the treasures of the noble Sunnah and Prophetic guidance, was greeted with immediate scholarly approval and has established its worth in terms of the far-reaching and long-term influence it has had on Muslim character, conduct, education and reform throughout the Ummah and across the centuries.
