Mysteries Of The Soul Expounded
Abu Bilal Mustafa Al-Kanadi | Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 139 | Size: 7 MB
The subject of this treatise – the nature, essence, and circumstances of the human soul – is fascinating to people of all ages, faiths, and walks of life. It covers the issue of death and what happens after it. Scholars of various schools of thought differ greatly regarding the nature and essence of the soul (nafs). Is it a part of the physical body or a non-essential characteristic of it? Is it an entity consigned to dwell within the physical body?, or is it an independent essence in itself? Is the nafs the same as the ruh (spirit)? Finally, what happens to the soul upon death? Is it confined to its body and its grave? If not, is it free to move about in the unseen spiritual world and on the earth?
Kindness And Gentleness
Dr. Fadl al Ilahi | Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 121 | Size: 8 MB
Undoubtedly, the heart leans towards those who are kind and gentle. It was said a long time ago: “Make your face and your words gentle, and you will be more beloved to the people than those who give them a gift. ” Likewise, it is part of human nature to turn away from severity and harsh heartedness even if it were to come from (our Prophet who is) the best of Allah the Most High’s creatures. Allah the Most high says: “..And had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have broken away from you..” (Sura Aal-‘Imran:159)
Dealing With Lust And Greed According To Islam
Sheikh Abd al-Hamid Kishk | Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 148 | Size: 12 MB
According to the teachings of Al-Islam, the desires and appetites play a vital part in the makeup of every human being; they cannot be ignored. The children of Adam, unlike the angels, face the challenge in this life of mastering these forces within us. If we fail to do so, then we become the servants of our appetites and thus fall below the level of the animal kingdom.

In the name of Allah the Most Merciful and Clement: [O Allah I implore Your assistance, O Allah bless Muhammad and his family and grant them peace.] Abu Muhammad ‘Ali Ibn Ahmad Ibn Sa’id Ibn Hazm [the Andalusian jurist]. Allah may be pleased with him has said: 1. Praise be to Allah for His great gifts. May Allah bless [our master] Muhammad, His servant, the seal of His Prophets and Messengers; may He grant them eternal blessings. I rely on Him for any ability and strength I may have, and I seek His aid and protection against all the various terrors and ills of this world.
