books

Ascent to Felicity – This text was written by the famous Egyptian Azhari scholar, Abu al-Ikhlas al-Shurunbulali, in which he explains the practical rulings regarding the outer dimensions of a Muslim’s worship according to the Hanafi school of jurisprudence (fiqh). These rulings are relevant and applicable, and it is necessary for every Muslim to know them.

The Beginning of Guidance – Written by the world-renowned Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, this book addresses the inner dimensions of a Muslim’s worship. The author wrote this book as a summary of his famous magnum opus, the Ihya Uloom al-Din.

Fundamentals of Classical Arabic – The author of this book, Shaykh Husain Abdul Sattar, is a hidden gem of our age. In this book, he explains complex concepts of Arabic verb conjugations in simple terms. His lectures may be found at www.sacredlearning.org.

Ten Lessons of Arabic – This book is Mawlana Amir Bashir’s translation of Mawlana ‘Abd al-Salam Kidwai Nadvi’s Das Sabaq, a primer on Arabic grammar. The translator himself recommends that it be taught alongside Fundamentals of Classical Arabic in order to attain a well-rounded understanding of the Arabic language.
