Chain of Commands

By Admin

Chain of Command, formally known as Mustalah-ul-Hadeeth or Ilm-ul-Hadeeth, is a course regarding the Sciences of Hadeeth. Sheikh Abdul BaryYahya divided the course into two major sections corresponding to each weekend. The first weekend essentially covers the Scholars of Hadith, otherwise known in Arabic as the Muhadithoon. The second weekend is dedicated to the actual science of scrutinizing and analyzing hadeeth. Allah (swt) has made a promise to preserve the Quran. Part of the preservation of the Quran is the preservation of the Sunnah of the Prophet . This is because the Sunnah explains how the Quran is understood and applied. It is in this course we examine how exactly the second source of legislation, Sunnah, was preserved.

The Life of Muhammad

By Admin

Islamic sanity has persistently resisted all attempts at deifying the Prophet’s person. Despite the fact that no human being has ever commanded as much respect and none has ever been object of so much affection by his followers, Muslims have rejected every suggestion imputing to the Prophet superhuman power or characteristics. By itself, and when compared with the conceptions of the careers of charismatic founders and leaders of other religions in history, the Muslims’ insistence on Muhammad’s humanity remains a miracle, a genuine triumph of the Muslim’s historical sense. This book is a tribute to the Muslim’s critical attitude inreligious matters. For centuries, the English reader has been presented with prejudiced literature about Islam and the Prophet. This translation has been a real effort to show the true picture.

Fundamentals of Tawheed

By Admin

Tawheed, or Oneness of God, is the core of Islamic faith. It is common knowledge that is the pillar of Islam that is most precisely expressed in the formula “La Ilaha Illallah” (There is no god but Allah) which states that there is only one true God and he alone deserves to be worshiped. This seemingly simple formula forms the dividing line between Eeman (true belief in God) and Kufr (disbelief) according to the tenents of Islam. Because of this belief the Islamic concept of God is considered to be unitarian and Islam is counted among world’s monotheistic religions along with Judaism and Christianity. Yet according to the Islamic unitarian concept Christianity is classified as polytheism and Judaism is considered a subtle form of idolatry. Thus the principle of tawhid is profound and needs clarification even among Muslims.
