Decoding The QURAN (A Unique Sufi Interpretation)

In this incredible age of increasing awareness and the rise of consciousness, where the intellect is craving to find the answers to the place and purpose of one's existence, we often find ourselves at an intersection of ancient texts and modern science, falling into an array of dichotomies. Decoding the Quran is a unique interpretation, which shows the integration of the two ways, highlighting non-duality of existence, and more importantly how the human being is an integral factor of this Oneness. It employs a holistic approach to the seemingly disconnected events, laws, edicts and commands of God, integrating this miraculous knowledge, to define how and why it is a concern to humans. What is the reality of a human being? Why is mankind reminded of their reality? What does the narrations of past events mean to us in our everyday? How should we understand the metaphors of the Quran? What is awaiting us after death? The answers to these questions, along with how man should understand the One denoted by the name Allah, are the most important and prominent topics covered in the Quran... Since the Quran addresses the whole of humanity throughout all ages as guidance to the truth, this particular construal has been done in the light of the realities of today.

Leadership Lessons from the Life of Rasoolullah: Proven techniques of how to succeed in today's world

There is a distinct difference between how one whose core faith is that Muhammad(Peace be upon him) was the Messenger of Allah and how someone who does not hold this belief, writes about him. This book, however, is not simply an analysis of history. It is a labor of love and reverence while being analytical and objective. It is an attempt by one who not only believes that Muhammad(Peace be upon him) was the best leader that ever existed but who believes in him and his message and wants to share it. The life of Muhammad(Peace be upon him) the Messenger of Allah is rich and full of lessons. It has been so well documented and so much has been written about his life over the centuries that another attempt is almost unnecessary. However, I decided to write this for two reasons: to make the lessons from the life of Rasoolullah(Peace be upon him) relating specifically to leadership easily accessible to the seeker, whether Muslim or not; and to make an attempt to see how these lessons are applicable today in a world that is in principle, very similar to the world he lived in. My premise is this: Since he was able to change his world and take his people from being the most insignificant, oppressed and weakest to becoming the predominant, admired and strongest in just one generation; if we learn how he was able to do it, we will be able to learn how to succeed in our world today.

The Essence of Man

The Essence of Man is a re-evaluation, or perhaps a renovation, of what has for centuries been indisputably accepted as the fundamental teachings of Islam. By deconstructing the outer conventional meanings of the many religious or, more specifically, Islamic labels and concepts, the reader is taken to explore the underlying universal meanings of the symbols and metaphors of their faith, and hence the essence of their self. What is the purpose of religion? What is Sufism? What state of existence lies beyond death? Who or what is referenced by the name 'Allah'? What was the ultimate reality Muhammad (saw) wanted to share with mankind? Why does one have to engage in certain practices and comply with the sunnah? How can one escape 'duality' and advance to higher states of consciousness? And, most important of all, what is the essence of all of these 'essential teachings' man has been advised to follow? Through a compilation of various writings and talks, Ahmed Hulusi takes his readers back to the core and redefines what it means to be a Muslim.

200 Golden Hadiths

200 Golden Hadith is a collection of 200 short and easy to memorize Sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him). Compiled in generalized format, the Hadiths are aimed at helping common readers understand Islam and attain spiritual purification.

What makes this book unique?

- Short and easy to memorize Hadiths

- Original text with easy to understand English translation.

- Diverse content- covering a range of subjects.

- Beautiful guide for positive thinking, personality development, spiritual/physical health, social well-being, and sound relationships.

- References from authentic sources.

- Stunning graphics and fabulous background

- Perfect gift for kids and youngsters

Islamic jurisprudence heavily relies on Hadiths for seeking interpretation of a given issue. Therefore, learning/spreading Hadiths has been marked as an obligation. The Prophet PBUH himself said, "Whoever comes to know one hadith of mine should spread it." However, we also need to be careful while spreading Hadiths so as not to alter any component of it, otherwise hellfire is the sure destination. By providing authentic content with simple English translation, Darussalam Publishers has actually helped general masses (with less scholarly knowledge) in learning the message of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

An Easy Step-by-Step Guide on Hajj

Hajj is a blessed and wonderful journey which gives a person a sense of spiritual upliftment and a feeling of closeness to Allah. However, if one is not adequately prepared, in all aspects, ie. physically, mentally and spiritually, one can go through this once-in-a-lifetime journey without gaining the desired effect and worse still, one may return feeling somewhat unfulfilled. This book aims to prepare a person for this spiritual journey, from well before departure to the return home, leaving no stone unturned in explaining even the minor details, which many other Hajj books fail to deliver. An excellent endeavour to fully equip the soon-to-be Haaji as well as for those who are taking others for Hajj.

The Koran (Al-Qur'an)

THE Koran admittedly occupies an important position among the great religious books of the world. Though the youngest of the epoch-making works belonging to this class of literature, it yields to hardly any in the wonderful effect which it has produced on large masses of men. It has created an all but new phase of human thought and a fresh type of character. It first transformed a number of heterogeneous desert tribes of the Arabian peninsula into a nation of heroes, and then proceeded to create the vast politico-religious organisations of the Muhammedan world which are one of the great forces with which Europe and the East have to reckon to-day.

The Prophet Muhammad

People today, and the young in particular, take many individuals as role models, imitate the way they behave, speak and dress, and try to be like them. Yet, since the great majority of these people are not on the right road themselves, they lack proper morality and attitudes. A Muslim needs to try to emulate the behavior and the morality of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), who was sent to mankind as the last prophet. He was a living example of the sublime morality of Allah's last revelation. He was a friend of Allah and inspired humanity by his nearness to Him. Allah confirms that in a verse: You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Surat al-Ahzab: 21) Although we have never seen the Prophet (saas), we can still do our very best to come to know his exemplary behaviour, his sayings and the pleasing morality he displayed, by means of the verses of the Qur'an and the hadiths. We can try to be like him, in order to be close to him in the hereafter.The aim in writing this book is to introduce various characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (saas), by revealing his devotion, superior morality and noble character.

The Quran

The Prophet Moses

The history of mankind could be considered as a history of prophets. God has communicated His Divine Revelation to people by means of His messengers throughout history. These messengers told people about God and communicated to them the words of our Lord. The struggle a number of prophets faced in spreading the message is depicted in detail in the Qur'an. The stories and experiences of various prophets, besides the Prophet Muhammad (saas), such as the Prophet 'Isa, Sulayman, Yusuf, Nuh, Ibrahim, and many others (peace be upon them all), are conveyed as examples.The prophet that is most frequently employed as an example in the Qur'an is the Prophet Musa (Moses) (as). The Qur'an offers detailed accounts of his difficulties with Pharaoh, beginning in his childhood, the evil conduct of his people and his struggle in communicating the message to them. His unyielding courage under the most stringent circumstances is presented with the intention of being an example to people. In this book we will examine the life of Musa (as) as it is depicted in the Qur'an. We will explore the events he has lived through as it is described. Essentially, the events in the Prophet Musa's life should not be regarded merely as events of the ancient past, but rather as events and examples to shed light to our own lives today.

English Translation of the Qur'an

Between these two covers you will find the answer to those questions which touch the very depths of your soul.

Why am I here? Where am I heading? How does one achieve happiness? Can one really find inner-peace? How can the "God" issue be resolved? Is blind faith and the curbing of logic the only road to spiritual nourishment?

The answers given are plain and simple. All that is required to benefit is truthfulness with oneself, and unbiased approach, and a sincere quest for guidance. With that, immediately you will see why so many are naturally compelled to accept this message. We invite you to contemplate the matter for yourself...

Satan: The Sworn Enemy of Mankind

When Life Begins

When Life Begins' is the English translation of the Urdu best-selling novel called 'Jab Zindagi Shuru Ho Gee'. It provides a comprehensive sketch of the world and life in the Hereafter in the form of an interesting novel. The first book of its kind which was read by millions of Urdu readers. A writing that will strengthen your belief in God and the Hereafter. A life-changing Book!

Know Yourself

The central theme of this book is that there is nothing in existence except the One. According to Ahmed Hulusi, the contingent and the necessary were never separate from one another; in fact, they existed from eternity as one. Indeed, the only difference is that the aspect of unity is real, while that of plurality is illusory. Reality is one, but its names are many and it is this plurality which becomes the cause of multiplicity. He points out further that the only true existence belongs to the One, and it is that One which is visible in all manifestations. 'Things' have no existence in themselves except as places of manifestation or reflections of the expressions of primordial Unity.

By presenting intellectual and knowledgeable arguments appropriate for the modern era in this book, Ahmed Hulusi leads the reader through an in-depth study, the purpose of which is to unveil the ultimate secrets and mysteries involved in knowing oneself and knowing Allah.

This book will also address a very important issue that is mostly misinterpreted by the Sufi circles in our present time and this is the concept of the oneness of Allah. Indeed, if you know yourself as nothing, then you truly know your Lord. However, you cannot know your Lord by making yourself nothing. Many a wise man claims that in order to know one's Lord, one must denude oneself of the signs of one's existence, efface identity and finally rid oneself of one's self. This is a big mistake. How can a thing that does not exist try to get rid of its existence? If you think that to know Allah depends on you ridding yourself of yourself; then you are guilty of attributing partners to Allah, the only unforgivable sin, because you are claiming that there is another existence besides Allah, the all-existent.

The Day of Judgment

Discusses the day when we shall be judged by Allah with regards to our deeds, both good and bad; this book seeks to remind people that they should use the opportunity they have in this life to earn the good pleasure of Allah, before it's too late, and for us to be grateful to the blessings our Lord has given us.

What Does New Muslim Need to Learn?

There is a rapid increase in the number of those who embrace Islam from different nationalities every day and everywhere, and All Praise is due to Allah. For this reason the Callers to Allah hold a great responsibility in teaching the new Muslims aspects of their Religion and the requirements upon them along with the rights they hold in their new Muslim community.

It is also known that many of the aspects of Islam require the new Muslim to practice them immediately upon embracing Islam, such as Prayer (Salah) and the rulings and acts which are compulsory for the correct performance and acceptance of the prayer.

Moreover, the one who has indulged into this field will notice that many of the educational books for the new Muslim neglect the learning and education aspect that includes performance, practical application and practice. This is the reason that arose the need for intense propagation programs that will receive these groups on the day they embrace Islam in order to present to them the important aspects of this Religion that every Muslim must have knowledge of in a simple and easy manner, and in the shortest time possible. The Islamic Center of Al-Ahsa has taken the responsibility of teaching the new Muslims for over 15 years, so it was lead to place an educational foundation to teach them. And after long years of consistent experience in Calling to Allah and Islamic Propagation, the curriculum has been established.

The Truth of Life (A Path to Self-Discovery)

What do we know about the world that is beyond our physical perception? What does a man's lifetime in this world amount to if compared to the universal dimension of time? If there is no god up in the sky who expects worship from people, then what is the reason behind religious and spiritual practices? What are we going to experience through and beyond death? The author discusses what the Quran and modern sciences say about these topics and more.

Some Secrets of the Quran

in the Qur'an, along with prayers, commands, prohibitions and high moral standards, God communicates many secrets to mankind. These are truly important secrets, and an attentive eye can witness these throughout his life. No other source than the Qur'an holds these secrets. The Qur'an is the unique source of secrets that those people, no matter how intelligent, literate or astute they are, could never hope to find anywhere else. That some people cannot see while others have a grasp of some hidden messages in the Qur'an is another secret created by God. Those who do not seek these secrets revealed in the Qur'an, live in distress and difficulty. Ironically, they never know the cause of their distress. Those who learn about these secrets of the Qur'an, on the other hand, lead an easy, joyful life. This book deals with the subjects related to some verses God has revealed to mankind as a secret. When a person reads these verses, and his attention is drawn to the secrets in these verses, what he must do is to seek the divine purposes hidden in events and evaluate everything in the light of the Qur'an. Then, people will realise with excitement that the secrets of the Qur'an control both their own lives and those of others alike.

Names of Allah

So, how well do you know our Creator, Who planned you and the entire universe with a delicate equilibrium? Many people have mistaken ideas concerning Allah due to the effects of different cultures and information of dubious origins. However, Allah introduces Himself to humanity through the Qur'an He sent down 1,400 years ago and informs us of His beautiful names. This book, written to introduce you Allah, seeks to replace the vague, flawed, and insignificant information that you may have acquired over the years with the genuine faith described in the Qur'an so that you may come to know Allah, the All-Mighty, better and draw nearer to Him.

The Secret behind our Trials

What has occupied your time over the years: worries about getting into the university of your choice, finding a good job, acquiring a suitable husband or wife, making lots of money ...? What have you struggled to achieve and acquire: fame, fortune, reputation ...? While seeking to meet your goals, have you ever considered the following truth: All of these goals are only temporary and impermanent, for you can take none of them with you when you die. After you die, what will happen to you? How will you fare in the Hereafter, where the only thing that will benefit you is how hard you worked while living in this world to earn Allah's good pleasure? The Qur'an states that this worldly life is a "testing ground" that will determine each person's place in the eternal Hereafter. During these tests, we reveal to each other and to Allah, Who already knows our ultimate destiny, who we really are. Those who grasp this secret and live their lives knowing that they are being tested will gain an eternal and never-ending treasure: God's good pleasure in His eternal Paradise.
