The Islamic history is replete with people who sacrificed everything for the sake of Islam and became a beacon of guidance and inspiration for the rest to follow. A group of such people is the Ashrah Mubash-Sharah (the ten companions whom the Messenger gave the glad tidings of paradise in this world itself). The ten fortunate ones are; Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Talha, Zubair, Abdur Rahman Bin Auf, Sad Bin Abi Waqqas, Said Ibn Zaid and Abu Ubaidah Ibn Jarrah.
This book contains the short life history of all the ten and hence becomes a good source to constantly draw inspiration and motivation from. The stories of them need to be told and retold in order to develop among ourselves the kind love and conviction towards Islam which they had.

The growing materialism (leading to individualism) has reduced the worth of emotions, relations and love. This has manifested in the worst form in children not only disobeying but disrespecting their parents, so much so that they are leaving them alone in their old age to fend for themselves.
Islam, as it has come to regulate all the affairs of the life, gives detailed rights of parents over their children and makes it a religious duty for children to respect their parents, no matter what the situation is. The children are to respect their children and speak to them kinds words, even if they are not Muslims.
In this book, Maulana Ashiq Ilahi Bulandshehri, charts out the rights of the parents over their children and the sharai duties children owe to the parents. The book not only mentions about speaking kind words to parents but other things that are necessary but are yet unknown. This book is a necessary read for the young children and especially married men and women as we often fail to realise that we are not giving our parents their due.

Carnal desires are indeed strongest temptations that open the door of evil and hell. Restraining these desires often becomes a herculean task, especially when one is at the prime of his youth. However, one of the things that can help one control the carnal desires is the knowledge of what Allah has in store as a reward for those who maintain the limits of Allah.
This booklet is an attempt to acquaint the reader, especially the youth, of the great rewards which Allah has kept for those who guard their private parts from unlawful sex.
Knowing the bounties and the beautiful wide-eyed maidens which Allah has made especially for the believer, the youth will feel a renewed energy and vigour to fight the carnal desires as the beauty of the women of this duniya will appear insignificant as compared to the Hur of Jannah.

However, one commander whose name will always be called with respect, whenever Islamic military achievements are mentioned, is Khalid Bin Al-Waleed.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Every faith has an innate character. The character of Islam is modesty.”
The above hadith eloquently conveys the importance of modesty in Islam. As for chastity, it forms the very base of a healthy society. Unfortunately, with the growing influence of the culture of west, the Muslim society at the moment is experiencing the deficit in both, modesty as well as chastity.
Realising this necessity, Maulvi Zafeeruddin has come up with this book calling for the upholding of the said virtues. Originally written in Urdu, the book has been translated in English to broaden the spectrum.
The book is indeed timely and the arguments are convincing.

Islam ceased to be implemented post the abolishment of the Khilafah in 1924. Since then there have been efforts to relegate Islam to a mere personal affair and to confuse the Muslims about the true concepts of Islam.
This book is a compilation of papers on the relevant concepts and themes about which Muslims are being made to believe in a western way. Arguing from the vantage point of Islam, all the papers in the book address the concern of the Ummah today. The book contains 11 papers in total, including ‘Roots of Nationalism in the Muslim World’, ‘The Method to Appoint a Khaleefah’, ‘Dhimmi – The Non-Muslims Living in Khilafah’, ‘The Western Beauty Myth’, etc.
The arguments in the book break the trance from orientalist authors which the Muslim Ummah still suffers from and makes it a must read for the Dawah carrier.

While growing up, our new responsibilities takes up most of our time and energy and we end up giving less time to our parents, so much so, that their genuine requests and desires frustrate us. If we look at the society, we realise that disrespect towards parents and dishonouring them have become prevalent.
This small booklet is nothing less than a reminder for every son/daughter of every age and invites us to ponder as to whether we are giving our parents their due right or circumventing them, believing that we are ideal sons/daughters. At times we start thinking that by being good to our parents we are doing them a favour, however this books dispels this notion and sets things clear that being good to them is not a favour at all, rather it is their right for which every son/daughter will be held accountable.

Living in an age where drinking socially has become a norm and gambling dens and casinos fast getting legalised and lawful, being a non-gambler and a totalitarian makes one witness the bizarre gazes from the so called ‘civilized’ and ‘evolved people’. It often makes one hear words like regressive and ultra-orthodox.
The booklet written by Muhammad Iqbal Siddiqui, unlike many books, takes on the topic intellectually and explains in a succinct and lucid manner the adverse effects behind the prohibition, by citing both the temporal and the spiritual harms brought along by the intoxicants and gambling.
A good read for the children who have just begun to interact with the society they are living in.
