Zainab’ is the first book in the series about the daughters of the Prophet Muhammad. This beautifully written book explores the life and times of the eldest daughter of the Prophet.
During the Islamic month of Ramadan, Muslims fast in daylight hours and perform special acts of worship throughout the day and night. Zainab is a young Muslim girl who spends this time with her family in traditional ways, but she and her mother also have their own special Ramadan tradition. They decorate gift baskets, fill them with treats, and give them to neighbours and friends of different backgrounds. This story shows how Zainab’s Ramadan baskets affect the lives of those who receive them. With its message of sharing and of strengthening communities, it captures the essence and spirit of Ramadan and Islam. For ages 4-8
Zak and his sister Hana decide to see how many good deeds they can do in one day. However, everything is going wrong for Zak, and his plans only end in disappointment … and lots and lots of mess.
Zak soon realises, though, that it isn’t important what happens; it is his good intentions that count.
Zakah, the third Pillar of Islam, is probably the first Pillar of its economic system. It represents the first and most important mechanism to implement economic justice and to provide sustenance to the economically unfortunate, two issues for which Islam is especially sensitive. These two issues are the essence of this book. This book consists of all the main issues of Zakat (i-e, Zakah on Gold, Silver, Paper Money, Livestock, Fruits, Grains, Rented Land, Buried treasures, Minerals, Trade, Shares, Stocks, and Exploited Assets etc). The main objective of this work is to serve an easy and authentic referene to the reader.
This edited book aims to raise issues pertaining to the topic of zakat and its primary goal of poverty alleviation. It portrays the dynamism of zakat by highlighting pertinent issues on the management of zakat institutions and innovative programmes that are designed as effective distribution mechanisms. Discussions include zakat payment motives, ways to measure the efficiency of zakat disbursement, economic development initiatives, housing programme, microfinancing, and actual impact on poverty alleviation. The discussions raised put emphasis on policy-orientation with dedicated sections on policy implications and recommendations. This approach is deemed necessary since it could guide the thought process of interested parties towards the creation of new ideas to actualize zakat as a very reliable tool in addressing the massive problem of poverty among Muslim communities. This special feature also significantly adds to the much-needed reference materials in courses on zakat at the intermediate level of undergraduate studies and introductory level of postgraduate programmes.
