This world and everything in it, including plants, inanimate things, animals, human beings, heavenly stars and all that which ensues from these existents – what relates and occurs to them – and all cosmic events, such as rainfall, wind, eruptions of volcano, the alternation of day and night, and all that which happens to man in terms of happiness and wretchedness, pre-eminence and fall, ascension and decadence, strength and weakness, continuity and collapse and the like – the existence and occurrence in the universe of all the aforementioned do not happen by chance nor at random.
Rather, all this takes place and happens according to a precise, immutable and unfaltering universal law from whose rulings nothing escapes.
This book details such universal laws and divine norms.
Worship in Islam is in-depth study of the nature and significance of Islamic spirituality by Abul A‘la Mawdudi (1903–79), one of the leading Muslim intellectuals of the twentieth century, with special reference to the concepts of God’s Oneness (tawhid), the finality of Prophethood (risalah) and the Islamic system of worship (‘ibadah) with a focus upon prayer (salah) and fasting (sawm) and their role in the development of the Islamic personality and Islam’s social order. The distinguishing feature of Mawdudi’s approach is his elaboration of the social dimension of worship, which extends the traditional approach found in Islamic jurisprudence, with its focus upon ritual and self-purification, to consider worship’s transformative role in social life. Presenting a holistic view of the Islamic system, Mawdudi highlights Islam’s social, economic and political dimensions, which he argues has the capacity to resolve emergent issues and problems that humankind faces.

Allah has blessed His slaves with certain seasons of goodness, in which rewards for good deeds are multiplied, bad deeds are forgiven, people’s status is raised, the hearts of the believers turn to their Lord, those who purify themselves attain success, and those who corrupt themselves fail. Ramadan, the month of fasting, is one such season. Fasting is one of the greatest acts of worship, and Allah has made fasting obligatory for His slaves. As the status of this act of worship is so high, it is essential to learn the rulings that have to do with the month of fasting, so that the Muslims will know what is obligatory, in order to do it, what is forbidden, in order to avoid it, and what is permissible, so that they do not need to subject themselves to hardship by depriving themselves of it. Matters Related to Fasting is a good summary of the rulings, the etiquette, and the manner of fasting according to the Sunnah.
Zakah, the third Pillar of Islam, is probably the first Pillar of its economic system.

Organizations must have rules of order to facilitate their debate and to fill in the procedures not detailed by their constitutional documents. While most American organizations are content to operate by Robert’s Rules of Order, Muslim organizations have often wrestled with questions over whether the rules of order systemized by a Western military figure are in accord with the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
This book tackles the matter directly and takes into account the Qur’an, the sunnah, Islamic manners and the history of Islamic consultation and leadership to provide a simple, practical guide to organizational procedure that can be incorporated into the governance of Muslim organizations. The book includes advice on writing bylaws and on complying with the best practices of the U.S. Dept. of Justice in a way that is Islamically authentic, transparent, and accountable. It provides a basic starting point for any Muslim organization while allowing for flexibility so that organizations may make any variations they require within their own bylaws and constitution, so that it can accommodate differing schools of thought on Islamic law. In its discursive approach it is an essential primer for understanding the value of rules of order and the Islamic context for their application. The Islamic Rules of Order has been adopted as the rules of order of the Association of Muslims Social Scientists.

Islamic Principles for the Muslim’s Attitude during Fitan (trials, tribulations, afflictions, calamities) (P/B)
Trials, tribulations, afflictions, calamities are just few meanings that fall under the word, ‘Fitan’ concerning which Allah says,
“Fear the Fitna, which affects not only those of you who do wrong (but it may afflict everybody). ” Surah al-Anfal 8:25
- and in such testing situations, if a Muslim was to let loose his thoughts without any principles and rules to base his opinions upon- his mind will wander into different directions effecting his behaviour towards his own-self, his family and society.
But observing rules and principles;
- Restrains a Muslim’s opinion to the values and ethics of the Sharee’ah, and
- Protects his thoughts from being effected by those ideas and views which the Sharee’ah does not approve of, thus encouraging appropriate attitude towards his self, his family and society.
In this book, Shaikh Saleh aal-Shaikh explains:
- how a Muslim should THINK and BEHAVE,
- how he should WEIGH and JUDGE people/situations in difficult and challenging times and situations – KEY RULES, which You can use in Your Daily Life too..
Preservation of health (hifz al-sihhah) is the most important branch of Islamic medicine since it is primarily concerned with the prevention of illness rather than cure. This book represents one of the few attempts to introduce the role of Islamic medicine, although Chapter One provides information about a historical background of the preservation of helath in Islam, its aim is to provide fresh ant timely overview of the major aspects of legal, ritual and spiritual structures of teh Islamic law (shariah). These include the laws related to Ibadah, Islamic family laws, foods and drinks as well as environmental laws, for maintaning and preserving human health. Findings indicated that prevention of any diseases from Islamic medical law presentive cannot attain any real success unless it emanates from an Islamic fundamental teaching, namely: the pillars of Islam. Iman and observance of the Islamic rituals such as Salah, zakah, Sawm and Hajj, have played an important role in shaping the attitude, behavior and model personality of the Muslim, in boosting the spiritual motivation or attitude change, and in disseminating the message of prevention. This indicates that bodily and spiritual health goes hand in hand and that pyscho-spritual balance and health is a primary consideration whereas physical health is a secondary one.
