No one can denies that the modesty which is commanded by Islamic law and by convention includes the decency and decorousness demanded of a women and they kind of behavior that will ensure that she is kept far away from situations of temptation and suspicion.

This is the fourth book in studying the reign of the Rightly Guided Caliphs. It relates the life of the Leader of the Believers, ‘Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, from birth until his martyrdom.
The book relates with detail how he came to Islam and his most important actions in Makkah, his migration to Madinah, his life in Madinah, his campaigns and battles alongside the Messenger of Allah, his life during the era of Rightly Guided Caliphs and his swearing of allegiance and his period of Caliphate.
It also discusses the internal problems that ‘Ali faced during his reign. It goes on to mention the events that led to the Battle of the Camel, and how all the parties involved are free from any fault. Afterwards, the events of the Battle of Siffeen are mentioned, along with the relationship between ‘Ali and Mu’aawiyah. The book sheds light on the fallacies that are held by some deviant groups about these events and their distortion of historical truths.
This book describes, among other things, the principles based upon which Umar ibn ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz governed the Muslims during his caliphate; among those principles were mutual consultation, justice, equality among people and honoring of freedoms.
With the turn of every page, the reader will come to appreciate the fact that ‘Umar was exceptional in his Faith, distinguished in his knowledge, profoundly wise in his thinking, remarkable in his eloquence, noble in his manners and great in the contribution he made to this Nation.
English readers have long been deprived of the life story of this outstanding Islamic hero and exemplar. While there are some short and scattered accounts about his general life, this is the first book to deal specifically with Umar bin `Abdul-Azeez’s reforms, which is surprising given that he has been attributed the title of Mujaddid (reformer/reviver) within Islamic scholarship, in great detail.
Among the many good deeds that the Prophet (S) guided us to and the evil that he (S) warned us about, are a set of manners that are comprehensive of worldly matters and religious matters, of worship and dealings – dealings with one’s family, children, acquaintances, and strangers. On this subject the writings of great scholars like Ibn Al-Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah, Ibn Muflaih and As-Safaareenee have been summarized in this book.
Water is the substance of life, the magic elixir without which life on this planet would be impossible.
The Qur’an not only mentions that the creation of all living things began from water, it also talks about various phenomena related to water like the sending of rainfall, the layers of darkness and internal waves in the oceans, the different colors of the seas, cloud formation and the barrier between fresh water and saltwater.
Professor Schroeder one of the greatest oceanographers in West Germany used to say, “When science progresses, religion must inevitably retreat”. But when he heard the translation of the meanings of the verses of the Qur’an he was stunned and said, “These cannot be the words of a human being.”
Read on to find out about the astonishing scientific facts which came down to Arabs in the desert who did not know how to swim or sail in the seas and oceans or possess the sophisticated equipment to make such discoveries, discoveries that have left modern scientific researchers, oceanographers and experts speechless and in awe.
