"Say: everyone acts according to his own disposition: but your Lord knows best who it is that is best guided on the way."
 {TMQ Al-Isra: 84}



English Translation of:
Izhar -ul- Haq

The Truth Revealed
Parts 1-2 and 3
By M Rahmatullah Kairanvi
Paperback 474 Pages

Originally written in Arabic under the Title Izhar ul Haq by the distinguished 19th century Indian Scholar Maulana Rahmatullah Kairanvi and appeared in 1864.
This is the thoroughly researched response to the Christian offensive against Islam in India. These three volumes lucidly review the authenticity of the Bible and succinctly summarise the main errors, distortions and contradictions in and between the Old and New Testaments of the King James Version. Furthermore, the doctrine of the Trinity is refuted; a doctrine that Isa (AS) never taught.
Well before the now famous Muslim-Christian Debates by Ahmad Deedat of South Africa Maulana Rahmatullah was challenging the Christian offensive against Islam in British India.
In a debate which took place in January 1854, in Akbarabad in the City of Agra. The Rev C C P Founder (who had written a book in Urdu to cast doubts into the minds of the Muslim) admitted that there were alterations in the Bible in seven or Eight places to which the Maulana commented "If any alteration is proved to have been perpetrated in a particular text, it is considered null and void and invalidated.
This and other debates proving Islam to be the true religion was part of the trigger which lead to the Brutal British aggression against the Muslims of India in 1857 in which thousands of Ulemah were killed, Maulana Rahmatullah was at the top of the list, but Allah saved him and took him to Makkah where he established The Madrasa Saulatia.


Tahdhib al Akhlaq (Arabic Original) 
A Hadith Guide for Personal and Social Conduct.
By Sayyed Abdul-Hayy al Hasani (1286 -1342 AH /1861-1923 CE)
Hardback 223 Pages
Published by UK Islamic Academy
A Series of Simple Arabic Books for Students of Arabic 

This is the Arabic Original to accompany the English Translation Tahdhib al-Akhlaq: A Hadith Guide for Personal and Social Conduct.

Anyone new to the science of hadith may be overawed by its sheer volume and complexity. Tahdhib al-Akhlaq: , is a gentle introduction that takes over 500 Ahadith from the six authentic collections predominantly from Bukhari and Muslim and arranges them into an easily understood and accessible subject matter. It covers over 45 short chapters such as sincerity in worship, maintaining ties of kinship, teaching children, thankfulness, modesty etc. It focuses on morality, manners and in this way it serves both as an excellent foundation not only for further study of the great works of hadith, but also as a guide to the Islamic way of life thus reviving the importance of Islamic moral conduct in the English Language.
Its unique style of inter-twining each subject matter with the appropriate verses of the Qur'an at the beginning of each chapter followed by carefully selected hadiths makes it fascinating to read, - a truly scholarly work made accessible to the general reader.

Al-Insaf fi bayan sabab al-ikhtelaf
Difference of Opinion in Fiqh

By Shah Wali Allah Al-Dhihlawi
Translated by Dr. Muhammad Abdul Wahhab
Paperpack 112 Pages
Published by Taha Publishers  London UK

Fair analysis coupled with reasoned judgment, objective criticism and examination of differences among different madhahib.
Although a small booklet one gets the impression that the original in  Arabic  was aimed at scholars, especially those conversant with Tafsir, Hadith and Fiqh

This translation of Al-Insaf is a humble endeavour to introduce the noble works of Shah Wali Allah Al-Dihlawi to the English speaking world. It is a modest tribute to his scientific investigation of the historical factors and other circumstances, which led to the development of Islamic Jurisprudence and the subsequent emergence of its different schools of thought. Al-Insaf's significance to Islamic Jurisprudence does not deserve recognition merely because it is written by a scholar of repute like Shah Wali Allah. Rather, its author's fair analysis coupled with reasoned judgement, objective criticism and examination of differences among different madhahib also need to be seen in the wider context of his overall scheme of reforming the Ummah by tracing its original root

SHAH WALIYULLAH (1702-1763) was among the later scholars who carried the traditions of Al-Ghazzali and Imam Shatibi in combining the essential of Shari'ah, its understanding, development and interpretation to the issues and problems of life. He like Al-Ghazzali took deep stock of Akhira as the explaining point of the relationship between worldly existence and the Hereafter in a meaningful way.

Bidah & The Salaf's Worship By Imam Abu Al Hasanat Abd Al Hai Lucknawi (d1304 AH)
Edited by Sheikh Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghuddah
Translated by Zahir Mahmood 

Paperback 148 Page
Al-Hamra Publication, London

What is a bid'ah? In the light of the Qur'an and Sunnah the author comprehensively answers this question, defining what would be regarded as a reprehensible and non-reprehensible bid'ah in Islam. Using this definition as an under girding the author moves onto the question.
 'Is exertion in worship a bid'ah, such as remaining awake the entire night engaged in prayers or completing the whole Qur'an in a single rak'ah? By presenting a deluge of narrations illustrating the wonderful exertion of the Salaf, the author in a scholarly manner also puts this question into its proper context
