Eid-ul-Azha and Eid-ul-Fitr are the only two days of celebration for Muslims. Allah has prescribed Muslims on these two special days to perform their salat outside the city in a big gathering in an open ground (Idgaah). However what has become common nowadays is that people are offering the prayers of Idain (the two Eids) in the mosques close to their homes and localities, making the sunnah of performing the prayer in the Idgaah insignifcant.
The booklet digs on the issue of praying Idain in the Idgaah and puts forward relevant references from the ahadith regarding it. It further brings out the opinion of the hanbali, shafai and maliki schools of thoughts regarding the same to emphasise the point. It is good book to know in depth about the almost lost sunnah.

In today’s world, success is defined by achieving a higher status in the society, primarily by acquiring more and more wealth. Most of us are competing in order to be ‘successful’ on the standards set by the society. But what if those standards are farce? The small booklet ‘Kamiyaabi Kya Hai?’ by Maulana Umar addresses this pivotal question of success and what it means to be successful. Arguing that the success can only be defined by the creator who created us, Maulana Umar has differentiated quite eloquently between success and failure. This small booklet quells many misconceptions about success and failure and sets a different standard for it.
This is the Hindi translation of the booklet, originally written in Urdu with the same title.

Making dua to Allah is one such act during which a man completely submits to the almighty and accepts his weakness. At the same time, the beseeching person also accepts Allah as the master of the worlds along with the conviction that Allah is capable of doing everything and can change his situation.

The booklet has duas related to fear, tauba, istighfar, istikhara, etc. Further, the booklet also has duas related to entering the mosque, waking up in the morning, going to bed, etc. All the duas have full Arabic text along with their translation in Hindi language.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) is our guide in all the affairs of life, be it religious, political, or social.

This book by Maulvi Muhammad Ashiq Ilahi Bulandshehri, besides charting out the lives of the daughters of the Messenger, gives us lessons as to how a father and daughter relation should be. Aprart from it, it tacitly addresses the importance of tarbiyya of the children. It is an interesting book giving lessons related to a few aspects of the social system of Islam.

In the Indian subcontinent, over the years Shab-e-Barat has become much popular. Along with its popularity, the debate has also risen as to whether there is an authentic narration that makes the Shab special or not. Most of the time it is observed that people argue about its correctness or incorrectness either without proper knowledge or simply on the basis that they found the practice being done by their parents as well.
This short booklet, which runs through 32 pages, written by Fazl-ur-Rehman Azmi, takes into consideration the authentic narrations and ahadith of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) and makes his argument based on the teachings of the deen and not from the mind.
As the debates sour every year during the month of shaban, this booklet is an interesting read in order to understand as to what is actually according to the deen.

This book is the Hindi translation of the Original ‘The Turban (Amamah), Topi (cap) and Kurta in Urdu.
The companions of the prophet (saw) , may allah be pleased with them loved the prophet (saw) so much that they emulated each of his acts, even to the extent that some sahaba (ra) would even bend at those places where the prophet had bent while he was on a camel and a tree came infront of him. They were not obligated to perform this act by the Shariah however their love for the prophet (saw) made them do so. The prophet (saw) is an Uswa (example) for us in all our matters of life. The Quran tells us about this in Surah Ahzab where Allah (swt) says:
[033:021] Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes for (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day, and remembers Allâh much.
The Muslim is obliged to emulate the prophet (saw) in every aspect of his life , whether it be his clothing, his rituals, his business, his law making, his government and all matters that he faces in his day to day life. This book aims to clarify the Sharia ruling regarding the Turban (amamah), Topi (Cap) and the Kurta

Today, when the whole globe is facing the crisis of a strong leadership, it is high time that we learn and take lessons of leadership (in thought as well as actions) from one of the most able and charismatic leaders of the Islam – Hazrat Umar (may Allah be pleased with him).
This book, though covers the complete blessed life of Hazrat Umar and has separate chapters on his habits and god-fearing nature, yet it focuses more on him as a caliph. The book in itself is a beautiful blend of Hazrat Umar’s closeness to Allah in the private sphere and his efforts in making the word of Allah high in the temporal sphere too.
This book further dispels misconception and exhorts that there is no separation between religion and state in Islam.
