Islamic History:
The Rise and Fall of Muslims
From the Pious Caliphs to Abbasid Spain and Moghal Dynasties

By Saeed Akbarabadi
Hardback  295 pages
Published in India  ISBN 81-7435-293-7

This book presents an account of the wonder inspiring rise of the Muslims and their pathetic fall.  It embodies the stories and assessments of the very first "Kilafat-e-Rashidah" (the well-guided government of the immediate successors of the Holy Prophet of Islam and the Muslim goverments in the succeeding periods of history, thier political strategies, their collective and social events and conditions in the cultural and administrative scenarios.  The factors and events leading to the rise of the Muslims and their faults and shortcomings resulted in their horrible downfall, have been critically analysed.  It is in fact an astonishing long tale which spread over a span of hundreds of years of the History of Islam

Maulana Saeed Ahmad Akbarabadi, was a critical thinker and was one of the few Indian Scholars who approved of the need for ijtihad in our times

Islam in Andalus
Ahmad Thomson & Muhammad Ata Ur Rahim
168 pages Paperback A5 ISBN 1 897940 51 3
Published by Taha Publishers  London UK

This book is the natural follow-on to For Christ’s Sake. It explores the history of that extraordinary period during which the Muslims first flourished and then perished in the Iberian Peninsula - now Spain and Portugal. It was largely due to the Muslim presence and illumination there that the Dark Ages in Europe came to an end, and the Muslim influence remains with us today in a thousand ways.

Ahmad Thomson was educated both in Zimbabwe and England, and having traveled widely, he was fortunate enough to escape having too rigid a cultural moulding or social conditioning.
although brought up as a Christian, recognised and embraced Islam for what it was. He is currently practicing as a barrister and is deputy chairman of the Association of Muslim Lawyers (AML). He has
written widely on a number of Islamic issues, particularly the history of Muslim Spain.  "Islam in Andalus", "For Christ's Sake", "Dajjal the Antichrist", "Blood on the Cross", and many more
