Neither prose nor poetry but a unique, mesmerising fusion of both, the Qur’an stands as one of the world’s most important spiritual texts and is a source of law, instruction and comfort for about one and half billion people around the globe. It is, among the world’s religious scriptures, arguably the one that today commands the attention of those unfamiliar with its teachings. There are numerous English translations of the Qur’an available, yet few, if any of them, can claim a phrase-by-phrase translation, concurrent with the original text in Arabic. This edition, from the Islamic College for Advanced Studies (ICAS), does just this. In addition to being of invaluable benefit to readers who understand English only, this method also permits those with even a rudimentary grasp of Arabic to draw nearer to the Qur’an’s inimitable style and lofty message, by following the Arabic text while being guided by the English. Expertly translated and prepared, this edition of the Qur’an also makes extensive use of classical commentaries from both Sunni and Shi‘i sources for broader-based understanding. ‘Ali Quli Qara’i studied at Osmania University and the University of Wisconsin. As a seasoned scholar familiar both with the intricacies of the Islamic texts and the English language, Mr Qara’i has dedicated his life to the translation of the classics of Islamic literature into English.
In this masterpiece, Shaheed Dastghaib has exhaustively explained the phenomenon of sin, the classification of sins, and the necessity of avoiding them. He has also described fifty different types of Greater Sins.
Compiled by Shaykh Abu Jafar Muhammad ibn Yaqub al-Kulayni

You will get a first-hand account of the teachings and interactions of Islam’s holiest personalities.

From a general discussion of the Holy Qur'an's essential relevance to humanity, stressing God's guidance of all His creatures toward happiness and well-being, the author proceeds to show how the Qur'an contains the fundamental roots of Islam and the proof of prophethood as the Word of God. Copious quotations from the Qur'an are given to illustrate its teachings, its exoteric and esoteric dimensions and the meaning of exegesis. The eternal validity of Qur'anic revelation is examined in depth, together with the attitudes of both Muslim and non-Muslim writers to the questions of Revelation and Prophethood. The relationship of the Qur'an to the sciences shows to what extent it encourages us to study all manner of natural and physical sciences, as well as philosophy, literature and every available branch of knowledge. The book closes with a brief description of how the Qur'an has come down to us.

“The Hidden Truth About Karbala; The injustice against the Ahlul Bayt and their followers since then until now.”
“The holy book “Sirr as-Salat” is a work of the perfect mystic, the spiritual cod’s which was written by Imam Khomeini (a.s) in the year 1358 (lunar year) [19 Khordad 1318 (solar year) ].
The book “Sirr as-Salat” has been reprinted a few times so far, but as publishers, due to the inaccessibility to the manual main copy, were not able to publish an accepted copy. The Institute for Complication and Publication of Imam Khomeini’s (a.s) Works -International affairs department- has published a respectful accepted and perfect copy enjoying, the information lists of different names, locations and necessary items, added with footnotes.

“I declare to the whole world with certainty that if the world-devourers would like to stand up against our religion, we will also rise up against all of them. We will not give in unless they were all annihilated. We will either be free or attain a loftier freedom, which is martyrdom. Just as we led to victory the Revolution singly and in complete isolation without the assistance and approval of any country, international organizations and groups, in the war more oppressive than the Revolution we fought and without the help of even a single foreign country, we defeated the aggressors. By the help of God and reliance on Him, we will traverse alone the remaining path full of vicissitudes.”
“If anyone of our Shia and devotee does not have the book of Sulaym Ibn Qays al-Hilaali, then he does not have any of our things, and he does not know any of our matters. This is the first book of Shia and is one of the secrets of Aal-e-Muhammad (a.s.).”

This book aims to briefly address main issues related to Islam. The ideas presented here are based on common sources among the Muslims and unless otherwise mentioned, they represent Muslim faith in its most general form and are thought to be accepted by all. Though simply and clearly written, this is an outcome of twenty five years of involvement in Islamic studies, and based on the author's experience in giving talks to Muslims and non-Muslims in the west. The first chapter studies the sources of Islamic thought, i.e. the Qur'an, the Sunnah and reason. The chapter continues by explaining the second most important source, i.e. the Sunnah, which includes the sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad. In this chapter there is also a discussion about the household of the Prophet (Ahlul Bayt) and their role in presenting the sunnah. Then there follows a discussion about the importance of reason and its role in understanding Islamic beliefs, values and practical laws. The second chapter studies fundamental doctrines of Islam, i.e. unity of God, prophethood and resurrection which constitute the principles of religion for Islam and other divine religions. In this chapter there is also a discussion about some of the doctrinal differences among Muslims on issues such as imamate. The third chapter is a very brief account of practices along with brief references to the objectives and principles underlying them. These practices are in principle shared by all Muslims, though there may be some differences in particulars among different Islamic schools. The fourth chapter studies some aspects of Islamic moral system and ends with reference to some of the outcomes of living a life of faith along with significance of supplication. The fifth and final chapter is a short discussion about the Muslim world today. This chapter starts with a brief account of the latest statistics about the present Muslim population of the world and goes on with a brief study of holy cities for Muslims.

Salman Al-Farsi; A short story of his life by sayed A. A. Razavi
A modest attempt has been made in the pages of this book to depict the life of Salman the Persian from sources which were readily available. It puts the focus on his love of Allah, his unflagging quest for the eternal truths; his “discovery” of Islam and his allegiance to it; his devotion to Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah; and his irrevocable “alignment” with justice, truth and simplicity.
