"Paradise Beneath Her Feet"
Author: Isobel Coleman
Publisher: Random House
Paradise Beneath Her Feet by Isobel Coleman
courtesy of
"Over the centuries and throughout the world, women have struggled for equality and basic rights. Their challenge in the Middle East has been intensified by the rise of a political Islam that too often condemns women’s empowerment as Western cultural imperialism or, worse, anti-Islamic. In Paradise Beneath Her Feet, Isobel Coleman shows how Muslim women and men are fighting back with progressive interpretations of Islam to support women’s rights in a growing movement of Islamic feminism."

"Journey into America"
Author:  Prof. Akbar Ahmed
Publisher: Brookings Press

"Nearly seven million Muslims live in the United States today, and their relations with non-Muslims are strained. Many Americans associate Islam with figures such as Osama bin Laden, and they worry about "homegrown terrorists." To shed light on this increasingly important religious group and counter mutual distrust, re-known scholar Akbar Ahmed conducted the most comprehensive study to date of the American Muslim community. Journey into America explores and documents how Muslims are fitting into U.S. society, placing their experience within the larger context of American identity. This eye-opening book also offers a fresh and insightful perspective on American history and society."

"The Holy Qur'an"

Translation by: Abdullah Yusuf Ali

Publisher: ASIR

"The Qur'an is a book of directions, showing man the right path to tread. It is a Light which guides his faltering steps, giving him timely reminders of Allah's will, awakening his sleeping nature and conveying the Lord's admonition. It is a book that, in giving him the moral sense to distinguish right from wrong, cures him, and his society, of all ills. In that sense, it is a book of wisdom, full of every expression of correct understanding. More, it is a book of laws, laying down for us the very foundations on which to build and organize society. In short, it provides everything that man-as an individual and as member of society-can ever need. Without this, man can never be the gainer, no matter how hard he tries. The Qur' an explains that it is this One God alone who sustains us throughout our lives here on this earth. Through Him our hearts are set at ease, for it is He who provides true warmth in life. He rescues us in times of peril, assists us in the hour of need. All power rests in His hands: honor and glory will be the rewards of any nation who looks to Him for support, while only disgrace and humiliation will be the lot of those who abandon Him. To know this is to hold the key to all the treasures in life. He who possesses this key gains all; he who loses it, loses all."

"The Ideal Muslimah"
Author: Muhammad Ali Al-Hashimi
Publisher: IIPH

"The Ideal Muslimah is proud of the great position that Islam has given her among humanity. She performs her duties knowing that her role is clearly defined and that her rights are still, even today, greater than any other ideology has provided. She is a woman of moral excellence, true to her nature, not confused by alien and morally bankrupt ideas. She preserves her self-respect and dignity through her piety in obedience to Allah (SWT) and His Messenger (PBUH). She is the role model that every true believer hopes to emulate. This comprehensive work by Dr. Al-Hashimi is a valuable contribution for our English readers who will find the knowledge contained therein truly beneficial and inspiring."

"Believing as Ourselves"

Author: Jennifer Lynn Jones 
Publisher: Amana Publications

"The author asserts that all too often "non-native" Muslims, in their well meaning zeal, throw away the very parts of their identity that, not only led them to Islam in the first place, but ultimately make them who they are - in so doing creating the impossibility of a true and vibrant connection with God. Not simply an expose on the difficulties to be found within the Islamic community, Believing as Ourselves, is packed with advice for those who find themselves struggling to reconcile the gap between the sometimes, bitter, reality of actual life within the faith, and the Islamic ideal they so cherish. In the words of Dr. Jeffrey tang, author of the books, “Struggling to Surrender”, and “Even Angels Ask”, "...She (the author) reaches out to them with practical, hard earned wisdom and carefully thought out advice on how they can overcome the many distractions and hardships, and reclaims that "initial determination, internal strength, and sense of authentic faith that was once theirs." -And they so deserve."

"Daily Dua"

Author:Team of Authors

Publisher: GoodWord Books

"This book contains masnun duas or the duas which were taught by the Prophet Muhammad (Saas). Dua is a noble form of dhikr or remembrance of Allah. By learning these duas and reciting them at the appropriate occasions, our every action is turned into worship. Our sleeping, eating, drinking, dressing, etc, all assume the form of worship. Constant and conscious recital of the various duas at their appropriate time fixes the remembrance of Allah in the hearts. These duas of the Prophet (Saas) draw the faithful closer to his Creator."
