33 Lessons for Every Muslim
Author: Abdulaziz Bin Baz | Pages: 76 | Size: 1 MB
Preface, ‘I had the opportunity to read the book titled “The Most Important Lessons For Every Muslim” written by Sheikh Abdulaziz Bin Baz (May Allah have mercy on him), which I think, is a highly beneficial book to all Muslims. It gives basic requirements for the foundation of their Aqeedah (creed) and ‘Ibadah (worship). It struck me that this small but informative book would be of immense benefit for non-Arabic speaking Muslims, spread all over the world, if translated into another foreign language. While translating this book, it dawned on me that the Sheikh has written this book, primarily for Arab speaking Muslims and thus has written most of the information very briefly. But this may not be sufficient for non-Arab Muslims, whose knowledge of Islam is mixed with their local cultures and practices, resulting in deviations from pure Islamic monotheism.

Foreword, ‘There is hardly any place on earth today where Islam is totally unknown. More and more people have become curious enough to find out something about this much publicized religion; more often than not, they have been pleasantly surprised. Islam is the religion and way of life of about one fifth of the world’s population. Muslims are of diverse nationalities, cultures and races, but their religion teaches that all humanity is essentially equal. Islam is generally misunderstood and misrepresented in contemporary Western societies; therefore, it is hoped that this booklet will help shed light on Islam and dispel many of the prevailing misconceptions. With this objective in mind, al-Jumuah Magazine presents a brief overview of Islam, followed by answers to some of the most commonly asked questions by non-Muslims
Program of Studies For New Muslims
Author: Mohammed Moinuddin Siddiqui | Pages: 75 | Size: 1 MB
Introduction to Program, ‘In 1974, the Planning Committee of the Muslim Students’ Association of the U. S. and Canada sparked the idea of designing a comprehensive curriculum for American Muslims who have recently embraced Islam. Such curriculum is greatly needed by a large population of Muslims in North America to help them understand Islam as a complete way of life, practice it and live up to its ideals. To satisfy this need, the task of producing the curriculum and its supportive material was entrusted to the Department of Education, Publication and Information. Through the efforts of that Department and the Islamic Teaching Center, Dr. Mohammad Moinuddin Siddiqui undertook to work out” A Program of Studies for New Muslims.” His deep commitment to Islam and conviction of the significance of education as a crucial vehicle for social change prompted him to devote his time and finish the first stage of this tremendous and challenging work. The second stage is the writing of text books which are specifically tailored to the sequential level series of this program of studies.

Extract from book, ‘Purity (Tahârah) is a beautiful word that is pleasing to the ears, and it is a quality which everyone strives to maintain. From an Islamic perspective, purity is a word which is general in its mean-ing. It may mean physical cleanness, which is purity (of the body) from impure substances or states of impurity, or it may mean spiritual purity, which is the purity of one’s self from vices, faults, sins, and replacing them with good deeds, whether in speech or deeds.’
