Imam Al-Ghazali: A Concise Life0 out of 5(0)
Imam Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali is a towering figure in Islam today. But did you know that during his lifetime he was a scholar and a penniless wanderer? In this short biography you will discover how Al-Ghazali rose from his humble background as a fatherless young boy from a small town, to become a successful student, a great teacher and the most famous thinker on Islam of his time.

With numerous extracts from Al-Ghazalis own autobiography carefully rendered into contemporary English this book makes the man many consider to be one the most important Muslims in history accessible to all.

Muhammad His Character and Conduct0 out of 5(0)
Muslims all over the world see Muhammad as God’s last messenger to mankind, and, for every community that wants to live under God’s guidance, the Prophet Muhammad’s character and conduct is the light showing the way to God’s pleasure. The Prophet’s miracle was to give to humanity a system of life that provides for all the needs of body, mind and soul, and elevates man’s aspirations towards a sublime ideal. Through his actions, he showed the way to achieve all this in a very simple, direct and truthful manner. He built a state that was dedicated to truth and justice and to the liberation of man throughout the world. He wrote to emperors, kings and rulers, calling on them to believe in God and to follow His message, yet, at the same time, he lived a life of poverty, leaving aside the riches that were offered to him.
At a time when the Prophet is much maligned by writers, cartoonists, and various other detractors this book aims to show Muhammad’s true character in detail, both in its most everyday and most extraordinary moments.
Adil Salahi’s writings include the acclaimed Muhammad: Man and Prophet and Pioneers of Islamic Scholarship, and the English translation of the 18-volume In the Shade of the Qur’an. His main career has been in radio and print journalism, and for over 30 years he was editor of ‘Islam in Perspective’, a twice-weekly full-page column in the Arab News, a Saudi daily newspaper.£12.99Pages : 300Binding : PaperbackPublished : 2013Age : young adult
