Free E-Book: The Night Prayer

The Night Prayer coverThis is a special gift from Faith Essentials, an online learning platform providing Muslims with everything they need to know about their religion in a holistic and structured manner.

The e-Book is free with a small donation to the people of Gaza this Ramadan through Islamic Relief. You can download it here: www.faithessentials.online/nightprayer/

We all know that the Night Prayer, or Qiyam Al-Layl, is so beloved to Allah. In fact, the Prophet ﷺ told us that the most beloved prayer to Allah after the obligatory prayers is the Night Prayer. Yet, think to yourself, have you ever seen a book on the Night Prayer in your local Islamic bookstore, online even, or anywhere?

It is the honor of the believer, it is the practice of the righteous before us, it is an audience with the King of kings, and it is protection from hypocrisy, among many other things. May Allah bless you and make us all of those who enliven the night with His remembrance.

E-Book Share: Western Muslims and the Future of Islam by Tariq Ramadan.

Western-Muslims-and-the-Future-of-Islam-200x300In a Western world suddenly acutely interested in Islam, one question has been repeatedly heard above the din: where are the Muslim reformers?

With this ambitious volume, Tariq Ramadan firmly establishes himself as one of Europe‘s leading thinkers and one of Islam’s most innovative and important voices.

As the number of Muslims living in the West grows, the question of what it means to be a Western Muslim becomes increasingly important to the futures of both Islam and the West.

While the media are focused on radical Islam, Ramadan claims, a silent revolution is sweeping Islamic communities in the West, as Muslims actively seek ways to live in harmony with their faith within a Western context.

French, English, German, and American Muslims–women as well as men–are reshaping their religion into one that is faithful to the principles of Islam, dressed in European and American cultures, and definitively rooted in Western societies.

Ramadan’s goal is to create an independent Western Islam, anchored not in the traditions of Islamic countries but in the cultural reality of the West.

He begins by offering a fresh reading of Islamic sources, interpreting them for a Western context and demonstrating how a new understanding of universal Islamic principles can open the door to integration into Western societies.

He then shows how these principles can be put to practical use.

Ramadan contends that Muslims can-indeed must-be faithful to their principles while participating fully in the civic life of Western secular societies.

Grounded in scholarship and bold in its aims, Western Muslims and the Future of Islam offers a striking vision of a new Muslim Identity, one which rejects once and for all the idea that Islam must be defined in opposition to the West

E-Book Share: All About Zakat al-Fitr by E-Da’wah Committee.

5016Every Muslim is required to pay Zakat al-Fitr at the conclusion of the month of Ramadan as a token of thankful¬ness to God for having enabled him to observe fasts. Its purpose is to purify those who fast from any indecent act or speech and to help the poor and needy.

E-Da’wah Committee (EDC) presents this ebook “All About Zakat al-Fitr” for new Muslims to learn how, when and why Zakat al-Fitr is paid.

E-Book Share: A Concise Encyclopedia of Islam by Gordon Newby.

Consie Ency of IslamThis Concise Encyclopedia of Islam is meant to represent Islam’s diversity and offer the reader a short definition of major terms and introduce major figures. In writing this Encyclopedia, the writer has chosen to use the distinction that was made by the late M.G.S. Hodgson in his Venture of Islam, between those subjects that are “Islamic” and those that are, in his word, “Islamicate.” By “Islamic,” he meant those subjects that have to do with the religion, and by “Islamicate,” he meant those subjects that are products of the culture that Muslims, and Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and others living under Islam, have produced.

We speak of “Islamic science,” meaning the scientific advances during the time of the Western Middle Ages, but those scientific advances were a product of the interaction of Jews and Christians as well as Muslims living in Islamic countries.

The reality is, the religion of Islam contributed to the development of that and other branches of learning because Muslim rulers chose to sponsor learning as part of their vision of themselves as Muslims. However, the writer has chosen to leave the political and cultural material to others.

Shared Research Paper: Zakat Perak Asas Kewajipan dan Amalan Di Malaysia

Kertas ini  merupakan satu kajian teks tentang pelaksanaan kutipan zakat perak di Malaysia khususnya bagi Wilayah Persekutuan. Anda boleh akses keseluruhan kertas kajian ini melalui paparan di bawah:

Secara umum, zakat boleh dikategorikan kepada dua jenis, iaitu zakat fitrah dan zakat harta. Zakat fitrah merupakan zakat peribadi yang juga dikenali sebagai zakat badan ataupun zakat bulan Ramadan yang kewajipannya hanya pada bulan Ramadan sahaja. Manakala zakat harta terdiri daripada zakat pendapatan, zakat perniagaan, zakat emas, zakat perak, zakat wang simpanan, zakat saham, dan sebagainya yang jenisnya berkembang selaras dengan definisi dan pemilikan harta yang sentiasa berubah dalam sesuatu zaman.

Namun begitu, kertas kajian ini mengehadkan penelitian kepada zakat perak sahaja.

Logam perak ialah logam yang berharga dan berguna. Pada zaman dahulu, perak digunakan sebagai alat tukaran (wang) dalam urusan jual beli. Selain emas (dinar), masyarakat Arab menggunakan logam perak (dirham) sebagai medium mata wang utama dalam sistem ekonomi mereka.

Namun, kini perak dijadikan sebagai material yang digunakan dalam proses pembuatan produk. Penempaan syiling perak tidak lagi dianggap sebagai wang, malah bertukar kegunaannya menjadi alat simpanan nilai dan pelaburan apabila didagangkan pada setiap hari dalam pasaran komoditi antarabangsa.

Secara ringkasnya kertas ini  merupakan satu kajian teks tentang pelaksanaan kutipan zakat perak di Malaysia khususnya bagi Wilayah Persekutuan. Anda boleh akses keseluruhan kertas kajian ini melalui paparan di bawah:
