    Four Essays on The Obligation of Veiling


    $10.00

    This is the second edition of the book "Three Essays on the Obligation of Veiling" which was published in 2003 and received with warm acceptance by the English-speaking Muslims to the point that there was a need for it to be reprinted since the original edition has run out, all praise be to Allaah.

    In an effort to provide as much benefit to the readers as possible, a new treatise was added to this edition bringing four separate treatises from different authors on the subject of Hijaab and veiling compiled into one book. In addition to this, there are several appendixes with quotes from the scholars of past and present elucidating points raised in the treatises.

    Authors: Ibn Baaz, 'Uthaymeen, Fawzaan, Zayd al-Madkhalee
    Paperback: 120 Pages
    Published: 2006

    Advice to the Muslim Woman
    Shaikh Saalih bin Fawzaan Al-Fawzaan

    Advice to the Muslim Woman - download - http://www.al-ibaanah.com/cms/pdf_files/75.pdf

    About the (attached) Book:
    This book is a complete translation of a transcribed lecture from Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan entitled: “Naseehah Lil-Mar’at-il-Muslimah” (Advice to the Muslim Woman). The source used for this translation was the book Muhaadaraat fil-‘Aqeedah wad-Da’wah, a large compilation of over 25 transcribed lectures from Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan on issues of Creed and Methodology (vol. 3, pg. 281-299, Markaz Fajr, 2003 Edition)

    In this particular lecture, Shaikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan covers many important topics related to women, such as veiling, being in privacy with male-strangers, traveling without a mahram and other things that are critical for a Muslim woman to understand and implement.

    This treatise will be included as the fourth essay in the forthcoming second publication of the veiling book published by Al-Ibaanah Book Publishing, which will be entitled Four Essays on the Obligation of Veiling by the Will of Allaah. May Allaah facilitate its publication.

    Excerpts from the Book:

    "Both a man and a woman must cover their private parts with ample coverings, since this preserves morals. As for shamelessness and nudity, these are things that lead to the corruption of morality, the loss of honor, and the spreading of lewdness. But when the private parts are concealed with the covering that Allaah has instructed the men and women to abide by, this protects the private parts from fornication and homosexuality and it protects the private parts from the unlawful things that Allaah has prohibited."

    "Allaah ordered that the women be asked from behind a Hijaab. What is meant by the word Hijaab is: Anything that covers a woman whether a garment, a wall, a door or any other object that can be used to screen a woman from a man when he is talking to her or asking her about something or handing her something. All of these should be done from behind a Hijaab, i.e. from behind a screen or covering. So he should not make any contact with her while she is unscreened or lacking covering and exposed. Rather, she must be behind a screen that covers her, regardless if it is her garment, her door, a wall or so on. This is since this is 'purer for your hearts and their hearts' from temptation. If women screen themselves by way of a Hijaab and the gaze of men does not fall upon them, the hearts of both the men and women will be saved from temptation and enticement. This is clearly visible in the Muslim societies that strictly adhere to the Hijaab."

    "As for what we hear about today from some ignoramuses that a husband’s brother, paternal uncle or other male relative can greet his wife, shake her hand, be alone with her and enter into her presence – this is baseless. It is not permissible for a non-mahram to enter into the presence of a woman (without Hijaab), nor to shake her hand, nor to be alone in privacy with her unless there is someone else in the house through which the privacy will be removed. But as for him entering into a house that has no one in it but her, and he is not one of her mahaarim, then this is the forbidden type of privacy and it is dangerous."

    If a woman has a need to speak to a man that is not one of her mahaarim, she may speak to him, but with a casual tone that has no softness or gentleness in it and not in a joking or laughing manner. Rather, her speech must be ordinary and in accordance with what necessity dictates – i.e. a question and an answer – as per the need only. She must not speak in a tone that appears friendly, laughing or teasing, or in a mellow or beautified voice, thus stirring the desires of the one who has a disease in his heart. This is based on Allaah’s saying: 'But rather speak in an honorable manner.' [Surah Al-Ahzaab: 32]"

    The Jinn & Human Sickness

    by Abu'l-Mundhir Khaleel ibn Ibraaheem Ameen
    • The subject of the jinn is one which is of interest to many people. Folk stories abound, and many superstitious practices have arisen in Muslim cultures with regard to protection against the jinn. Many myths surround the ideas of the evil eye and envy, and there are many strange notions surrounding illnesses such as epilepsy and mental illness, which are often thought of as being caused by the jinn.This book cuts through all the confusion and identifies correct Islamic teachings on all these subjects. The jinn are real and they can indeed harm humans, but this book will teach you how to protect yourself in the manner taught by the Prophet (saws). Break free from fear, superstition and fairy stories, and familiarize yourself with the teachings of Islam on these important aspects of spirituality which the author presents here, drawing on the texts of the Qur'an and Sunnah and the writings of the respected scholars of Islam.

    Madina to Jerusalem is a short history of the Muslims' expansion in to Sham after the death of the Prophet (pbuh), a period which is not usually written about in great detail. This book is clearly written and suitable for people of a young age, as well as those who do not have much time to read more densely -written histories.

    Thematically, it is divided into three parts: the first gives an account of the battles over Sham between the Byzantine and Persian empires, up to the seventh century CE; the second tells of how the Muslims gradually spread to the borders of the Byzantine empire and eventually took control of Sham; the third makes an interesting exploration into the motives for Muslim expansion, weighing up the evidence from different historical sources.

    As Patel explains, the temple of Solomon (as) was destroyed, captured by the Persians, then captured by the Greeks, who dedicated the site to Zeus; captured by the Jews, who ruled it for a century; taken over by the Romans, who built a new temple to Jupiter (Zeus); ruled by the Christians, who banished the Jews; taken over again by the Persians, who, with their Jewish allies, massacred the Christians; then taken over by the Muslims, who allowed both Christians and Jews freedom of worship.

    Part one is somewhat stiffly written, and could do with more rigorous editing, as there are some repetitions and grammatical errors. Patel also writes as if he assumes that the reader already has some knowledge of Byzantine history, suddenly mentioning the names of certain characters without much introduction. It is when he moves into part two that the writing comes alive and he turns history into a readable narrative, as the Muslims gradually move in on Sham, eventually taking over its towns. Here he gives an interesting account of the rules of engagement and of military strategies.

    What can be seen from the Muslims' take over, which Patel calls "liberation" – a word that smacks uncomfortably of the Soviet Union – is that it was standard practice for the Muslims to allow the inhabitants of Sham to continue living as they had before: to maintain their property, go about their business and worship freely according to their religion. The strength of the Muslim empire came about, therefore, from allowing a multi-cultural, pluralistic society. There was no interest in forcing that society to become a homogenous Islamic state.

    In part three, Patel successfully disproves any assertion that the Muslims expanded for material reasons: after they conquered Sham, there was no mass emigration from Arabia. Quite literally, they saw it as their duty to spread the message of Islam or to collect the jizya from those who preferred not to convert.

    Palestine, Beginner's Guide is set out like a text book and would be ideal for teaching in schools. It is also good for adults who may find the political
    complexities of the issue difficult to grasp at times. It is divided into thirty-two short chapters, with photos, illustrations, fact boxes and quotations. This is a balanced account, which tells of the history of Jews in Europe and their persecution for the last thousand years ("1391: 50,000 Jews killed on the Island of Majorca; 1420: Jewish community annihilated in Toulouse, France"), but which also gives a succinct and informative account of the architects of Zionism and subsequent Zionist aggression against the inhabitants of Sham, both Muslim and Christian.

    Some shocking statements include: "In 1941 the US passed new immigration laws, which made it impossible for the persecuted Jews of Germany to enter the USA (107)," and Ben-Gurion's words: "The catastrophe of European Jewry is not, in a direct manner, my business (109)." Zionists have displaced nearly six million Palestinians, who now live in exile around the world. Their terrorist activities forced Britain to finally leave Palestine in 1947.

    Patel also reveals the strategies employed by the Zionist government in order to justify its invasion of Lebanon in the 1950s, using extracts from the Prime Minister's diary: "Israel should provoke Lebanon's Muslims to attack Lebanon's Christians in the hope of igniting a Civil War in Lebanon" and "The Chief of Staff supports a plan to hire a [Lebanese] office who will agree to serve as a puppet so that the Israeli Army may appear as responding to his appeal to liberate Lebanon from Muslim oppressors (153)." Palestine, Beginner's Guide concludes by calling for Muslims, Christians and Jews to live in peace and proposes not a separate state for Palestinians and Jews, but a single state for all, using ex-apartheid South Africa as a model.

    A History of Palestinian Resistance, which was commissioned by Patel, is a slimmer volume than Palestine, Beginner's Guide, but is more suited to adult readers, although it also sets out to be text book, with questions at the end of each chapter. It consists mainly of text and is divided into twenty chapters. Again, it begins with a history of Sham, showing clearly that the ancestors of the Jews were not the only ones to have a long history in that area: "When [the Israelite tribes] invaded the land of Canaan in the twelfth century B.C. [two thousand years after the Canaanites] the population of the country included […] the Canaanites, the Hittites, Ammonites, Edomites, Moabites and Philistines (2)."

    The main focus of this book, however, is the history of Zionism and the Palestinian uprising. The style is more emotional and Abdullah overlooks the problems that have existed within the Palestinian resistance itself, entitling one chapter "Fateh Keeps the Struggle Alive," while we now know that Palestinians have voted with their feet because of Fateh's alleged corruption and infighting. Nevertheless, its brevity and conciseness ensure that it remains readable.

    These books, lucid, surprising and informative, put today's conflict in its three-thousand-year context, making one question: When are we ever going to learn?

    Al-Muhaddithat: The Women Scholars in Islam


    This book is an adaptation of the Muqaddimah or Preface to Mohammad Akram’s 40-volume biographical dictionary (in Arabic) of the Muslim women who studied and taught hadith. It demonstrates the central role women had in preserving the Prophet’s teaching, which remains the master-guide to understanding the Qur'an as rules and norms for life. Within the bounds of modesty in dress and manners, women routinely attended and gave classes in the major mosques and madrasas, travelled intensively for ‘the knowledge, transmitted and critiqued hadith, issued fatwas, etc. Some of the most renowned scholars among men have depended on, and praised, the scholarship of their women teachers. The women scholars enjoyed considerable public authority in society, not exceptionally, but as the norm.

    The huge body of information reviewed in al-Muhaddithat is essential to understanding the role of women in Islamic society, their past achievement and future potential. Hitherto it has been so dispersed as to be hidden. Akram’s dictionary will greatly facilitate further study, contextualization and analysis.


    About the Author

    Mohammad Akram, currently a fellow of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, is an alumnus of the prestigious Nadwatul Ulama, Lucknow. He has written many books on hadith, fiqh, Islamic biography, and Arabic grammar. This is his first major publication in English.

    The Creed of Ahlus-Sunnah on The Mahdi


    By : Sheikh Abdulmuhsin Al-’Abbaad


    128 Pages , Price: 10 $

    Alhamdulillaah it is a pleasure to publish this very important book. For the first time in the English language we have a reliable book discussing this topic. Authored by a mountain of knowledge.

    About the Author:


    Sheikh Abdulmuhsin al-‘Abbaad is one of those few scholars who many scholars refer to him as their teacher.

    He is the former president of the Islamic University Madeenah, and was the first person who held the first class when the University was opened! and has since been teaching there for the past 50 years.!!


    He also still has regular lectures at the Prophetic Masjid -where he recently finished his explanation on the 6 major books of hadeeth-.

    May Allaah bless the sheikh and elongate his life [he is almost 80 years]!

    About the Book:

    The topic of the book is critical.


    So many have expressed their beliefs and opinions on this topic: those who say it is an innovation in Islam, those who say it is ‘symbolism’, the conspiracy theorists and their theories, those who have out-rightly rejected it!

    And as such, do not be shaken by the whims and doubts.


    This book expounds –with some detail- the correct belief [with proofs], and also refutes & responds to the common allegations of those who have wrong belief in this issue.


    Enlighten yourself with authentic knowledge.

    The book is available today, to order send your request to bookrdrs@gmail.com or visit - http://themahdi.wordpress.com/
