AL-GHAZALI: MISHKAH AL-ANWAR - THE NICHE FOR LIGHTS
translated by W.H.T. Gairdner
Paperback, 98 pages
 

 

 

This treatise gives an intimate glimpse of the inner life and esoteric thought of Imam al-Ghazali. It begins where his autobiographical Deliverance From Error (Al-Munqidh min al-Dalal) leaves off. It basically expounds the celebrated Light verse (24:35) from the Qur’an and the subject of Veils from the hadith. These are further elaborated in three sections; one studying the various meanings of “Light”, the other on symbolic language in the Qur’an and Hadith and the final section concludes by applying the results of this symbology to the verse and hadith in question.

THIS LAW OF OURS AND OTHER ESSAYS
Muhammad Asad
Paperback, 251 pages
 

 

 

The thesis propounded in this book is based on several essays published in the periodical Arafat, which the author wrote and edited in the 1940s. Arafat was a “one man’s journal” – as its subtitle stated “a monthly critique of Muslim thought” – a kind of journalistic monologue meant to clarify the great confusion prevailing in the Muslim Ummah as to the scope and the practical implications of Islamic Law. The aim of this book is to contribute something to a clarification of this fundamental issue confronting the world of Islam in this period of transition.

APA KATA ISLAM TENTANG MURTAD
S.A. Rahman
Paperback, 237 pages
 

 

 

Hukuman ke atas murtad terus menjadi kontroversi yang tidak dapat diselesaikan dalam dunia Islam, walaupun dibincang dan dibahaskan sarjana Islam dan bukan Islam untuk berabad lamanya.
Kebelakangan ini, isu ini menjadi lebih penting ekoran kemunculan idea hak asasi manusia seperti kebebasan beragama. Kebangkitan semula Islam yang merupakan fenomena global turut menyerlahkan pelbagai aspek undang-undang Islam dan tanggapan tentang jenayah dan hukuman, seterusnya menyumbang kepada kritikan terhadap Islam.
Sebuah masyarakat majmuk seperti Malaysia terpaksa juga berhadapan dengan kontroversi berkaitan identiti dan status beragama, dan ini menjadikan pemahaman mengenai isu murtad dalam konteks negara Malaysia sesuatu yang penting.

THE PROBLEM OF CORRUPTION
Syed Hussein Alatas
Paperback, 182 pages
 

 

 

Corruption is a disease that can sweep through a society like a tidal wave, leaving in its wake a trail of negligence, lethargy, inefficiency and callous disregard of man’s inhumanity to man. What is it like to live inside such a society? Why has it taken such strong root in so many countries? Is there no sense of outrage and shame against such a phenomenon among our elite? What can be done to stem the tide? Is it corruption as it is known in the West? These disturbing questions and more are answered in this book. Corruption in all its forms, bribery nepotism and extortion, is shown for what it is – a major cause of the dehumanization and victimization of innocent people. The corrupt have no aspirations for the betterment of their societies.

ISLAMIC ETHICS OF TECHNOLOGY: An Objectives' (Maqasid) Approach
Amana Raquib
Paperback, 404 pages
 

 

 

This book approaches the question of technology from an Islamic ethical perspective. The book tries to broaden the scope of the Sharia to deal comprehensively with the ethical questions and dilemmas that arise in the midst of a postmodern technological culture due to the absence of well-defined religious-ethical ends. It looks at the maqasid as a universal ethical theory to be interpreted and applied in the global technological context. It weaves the contemporary philosophical analysis of technology within the maqasid discourse and assesses modern technology through the lens of the ultimate aims and purposes of the Sharia. It works out the relationship between the various objectives and how they can be developed into an Islamic ethics of technology. Following in the recent interest in the objectives of the Sharia, the book further expands the scope of the maqasid and carries it further to encompass metaphysical and ethical debates surrounding technology. Anyone interested in finding alternatives to the existing technological model will find this book valuable. Specifically those interested in Islam and Modern World and how ijtihad is being undertaken to tackle contemporary ethical problems will find this book helpful

'ABD AL-QADIR AL-JILANI: FIFTEEN LETTERS (KHAMSATA 'ASHARA MAKTUBAN)
 
translated by Louay Fatoohi
Paperback, 108 pages
 

 

 

Shaikh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani is arguably the greatest figure in the history of Sufism. His teachings have attracted millions to Islam and helped countless Muslims understand the spiritual journey that this great religion represents.
The current work consists of fifteen short letters in which the Shaikh describes spiritual experiences and knowledge that are attained through striving against one’s base desires and committed devotion to Allah. They are written in a highly mystical language, using a peculiar style whereby each sentence or group of sentences is followed by a related Qur’anic text. In effect, the letters represent a Sufi experiential interpretation of the quoted Qur’anic verses. While small in size, this exceptionally charming and poetically beautiful work is immensely profound.

MALAYSIA-SINGAPORE: Fifty Years of Contentions 1965-2015
Kadir Mohamad
Hardbound, 364 pages
 

 

 

This book offers an interesting and informative account of the often fractious relations between two countries in the heart of Southeast Asia. It outlines the primary issues that plagued relations between Malaysia and Singapore in the last fifty years and the political, diplomatic and legal initiatives taken to address them.
The author gives a first-person narrative of the seemingly endless behind-the-scene episodes that have brought the love-hate relationship to where they are today. He further delves into the vast reservoir of information on the rocky bilateral relationship to provide a reasonable argument over why Malaysia has behaved as it has since 1965. Exhaustive record of, among others, minutes, letters and documents are brought to light to substantiate the Malaysian view in relation to issues of contention with Singapore.
Coming from an insider with more than four eventful decades in the Malaysian Foreign Service, it will be an eye opener for many.

IMAM AL-SHAFI'I' IN QUEST OF KNOWLEDGE
Islahee Muhammad Yousuf
Paperback, 98 pages
 

 

 

In Quest of Knowledge is the story of Imam Muhammad ibn Idris al-Shafi‘i’s search for knowledge. The story revolves round a son whose sole mission in life is to acquire knowledge, a teacher who lovingly accepts him, and a widow who not only bears with the separation of her only son but also shares his passion for knowledge. Their innate nobility, their ability to suffer for a common cause, their intense love for the Prophet (s) and their infinite trust in Allah give them the dimensions of epic heroes.

FEAR AND HOPE
Al-Ghazali
Paperback, 169 pages
 

 

 

This is a translation of the third book from the fourth volume of Imam al-Ghazali’s magnum opus Ihya Ulum al-Din, concerning the means of salvation, that is, the techniques or therapies by which the cure of the soul is achieved. This book might well be described as an essay in the tactics of propagating the Faith to the community at large. The principle objective is to outline the salutary employment of fear and hope in the cure of the soul. The book deals with a topic of pastoral psychology and is a good sample of the work of Imam al-Ghazali in so far as it illustrates some of the reasons why he has attained so commanding a position within Islam and exercised so great an influence on the course of theological thought.

THE FIRST AND LAST REVELATION OF THE QUR'AN
Louay Fatoohi
Paperback, 101 pages
 

 

 

In the written Qur’an, known as “mushaf,” the chapters are not arranged in the chronological order of their revelation, so the first and last verses in the mushaf are not the first and last revealed verses, respectively. There are a number of had?ths and historical reports about which verses and chapters were revealed first and last. This book examines the credibility of each report, evaluates the views of scholars, and presents its own conclusions. Focused on the subject of the first and last revelations of the Qur’an, this book is by far the most comprehensive and complete study of this area of the Sciences of the Qur’an.
