“Terrorism” is of two kinds: terrorism that is evil based upon wicked tyrannical acts, and terrorism that is good and desired based on necessary and justified acts. The terrorism that is evil is injustice, double standards, tyranny, and aggression, in all the hateful connotations that these words imply. It targets women and children, civilians and noncombatants, trying to force defeat and difficult political decisions by spreading terror. This kind is what most people immediately think about when hearing the word terrorism. Often people associate it with what they have been preconditioned to picture by various government agencies and segments of the mass media. Muslims are routinely portrayed as terrorists even though many are either totally innocent of the charge or are more innocent than many of their antagonists who aggress against them. “Muslim terrorism” is a media and think tank byword, even though one would be hard pressed to find the equivalent term of Jewish, Christian, Hindu or Buddhist terrorism in usage. Certain institutions and individuals – with known agendas and backings – have been instrumental in fabricating and perpetuating misinformation, exaggeration, and previously disqualified and refuted misunderstandings and slanders.



Among the great civilizations of the world, Islam remains an enigma to Western readers. Now, in a beautifully illustrated historical atlas, noted scholar of religion Malise Ruthven recounts the fascinating and important history of the Islamic world.



The Wisdom behind the Islamic Laws Regarding Women: A treatise presented for the Fourth United Nations World Conference on Women, held in Beijing, China.



Why should an intellectual embrace Islam? We shall try to prove herein that the truth and perfect of the Qur’an, revealed between the years 611 and 632 A.C could not have possible been the work of Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him), the Prophet of Islam (Peace be Upon Him), nor of any human being in history. It could only have been an outside revelation of Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) from a most knowledgeable super-natural source. The role of the Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) did not exceed that of an honest Messenger, as well as a human model for all mankind. Our approach will be both scientific and historical. We shall repeatedly underline certain verses of the Qur’an that have stated or pointed to some modern scientific facts and concepts, in unequivocally precise terms. Such facts and concepts were beyond the reach of human knowledge at the time of revelation and for centuries thereafter. This establishes beyond doubt that the source of Qur’an is: Superior to mankind, Absolutely Knowledgeable, and Most Truthful.



We like to emphasize that this text is not a substitute for the original Arabic Holy Quran. It is only an attempt to help those who are trying to learn to read the Arabic text, since it is as close to the written text as possible. It is important to practice pronouncing the letters as directed in the transliteration table, especially the underlined letters, before starting to read. It will be helpful if an Arabic speaker can help you or even listening to the Qur’an recitation in the Arabic Language. This work is free for use to everyone as long as no changes that might distort it are done to it. we request from those who benefit from it to pray for us. We pray to Almighty Allah to help you learn to read the Holy Quran, and to do every good thing.



The science of hadeeth terminology and assesment is a particularly difficult field of study. Dr. Bilal Philips has managed in this text to simplify this topic and to make it quite relevant to our times by addressing some of the most challenging questions raised by those who question the validity of hadeeth literature in general.



Allah (SWT) has placed in every human being the natural desire and inclination for gold, silver, money, transportation (cars), land, and other items of this world. The test for a person is how he responds to his desire for these items. If he uses these items to prepare for the hereafter, he will be successful. On the other hand, if he devotes himself to fulfilling his desire for these items and forgets about his purpose in this world, he will be amongst the losers in the hereafter.



We at At-Tibyan Publications are pleased to present a recorded question and answer period with our Shaykh, Abu Qatadah ‘Umar Ibn Mahmud Abu ‘Umar Al-Filastini, may Allah free him from prison. The arrangement for these question periods was originally set up to have about forty questions answered, and it was planned to be over a number of sessions. The Shaykh completed the first session and was not able to complete the rest as he was arrested and has yet to be released.



IN the year 1132 a broken army, flying before its pursuers, reached the left bank of the Tigris. On the other side, upon a steep cliff, stood the impregnable Fortress of Tekrit, defended landwards by a deep moat and accessible only by secret steps cut in the rock and leading from the heart of the citadel to the water’s edge. The one hope of the fugitives was to attain the refuge of the castle, and their fate turned upon the disposition of its warden. Happily he chose the friendly part, and provided a ferry by which they crossed to safety. The ferry boats of the Tigris made the fortunes of the house of Saladin. The flying leader who owed his life to their timely succour was Zengy, the powerful lord of Mosil; and in later days, when triumph returned to his standards, he did not forget the debt he owed Tekrit, but, ever mindful of past services, carried its warden onward and upward on the wave of his progress. This warden was Saladin ‘s father.



Those people who do not believe in Allah ofter feel regret throughout their lives, commonly using phrases like “I wish I had not done this…”, “I wish I had never said this…”, and so on. More importantly, they are subject to a much greater regret in the Hereafter. Those who lived a life apart from religion in this world will regret every moment of their lives. They were warned before and invited to the straight path. They had enough time to contemplate and embrace the right way. Yet they did not listen when they were warned, ignoring the Hereafter as if they would never die. Then in the Hereafter, they will have no chance to get back to this world and correct their errors. The aim of this book is to warn people against a day when they will regret, saying “had we only understood…”, “had we only not rejected the signs of our Lord…”, “had we only followed those who brought us the message…”, etc., and to invite them to live for Allaah while they still have the chance to correct their wrongs.
