About the Book

Believing in all the Messengers and Prophets – form Adam to Muhammad – may peace be upon them all, is one of the pillars of faith in Islam. Denying any of them is a form of kufr – disbelief – which if not repented leads to Hell-fire. Similar is the case with exaggerating any of them beyond their respective honorable status that Allah, the All-Mighty, has given them, as the followers of many faith are doing.

(The Messenger believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the believers. Each one (of them) believes in Allah, His Angels, His books, and His Messengers. “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination.) [Qur’an 2:285]

(We do relate to you (O’ Muhammad) the best of stories in what We have related to you the Qur’an, although you were, before it, among the unaware.) [Qur’an 12:3]

(So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought) [Qur’an 7:176]

The renowned mufassir (exegete), muhaddith (expert in hadith) and historian Ismail ibn Katheer has compiled the Stories of the Prophets from the Qur’an and the narration of the Prophet, Blessings and Peace be upon him, authentically reported.

The book is thus unique in its content, dealing with the important events of the Prophets and Messengers with all authentically right from Adam the first prophet to Jesus, Peace be upon them all. As for Prophet Muhammad, the author has written a separate book about his seerah.

Description From The Publishers

The life of a believer is one of struggle and toil in order to cleanse the soul and to work towards righteous actions and deeds, which are pleasing to our Lord, Allah, the Most High. For this reason, disciplining oneself is of utmost importance in order to achieve the spiritual growth that every soul requires.

The inner fight against the self takes place in every human being daily, however only the sincere and powerful will do away with such impulses and attacks and will overcome the forces of desire. Just like food, drink and clothes are a necessity for the human being, so too is the need to discipline the soul and rectify the flaws of the self. In today’s society, people often neglect the self and the need for it to be reformed upon the teachings of the Qur’an and the beautiful example of our beloved Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) and his Companions.

As humans, we tend to focus on what is apparent and neglect the spiritual dimension of oneself. For this reason, the book before you will not only fill that void but will also be a means of rectifying the self. This guide before you is of utmost value and its need in our materialistic society cannot be underestimated, by the permission of Allah, the Most High.

In this second installment, the author, may Allah have mercy on him, discusses the marvels of the heart and curing the sickness therein, disciplining the self and breaking the desire of the stomach and the private parts. It also covers how to deal with pride, malice, envy, and the defects of the tongue. It concludes with the harms of greed, the praise of wealth, showing off, self-delusion, and how to overcome all these diseases that harm the spirituality of any person that is seeking the Hereafter.

About The Book

Ash-Shāfi’ī said, “After the Book of Allah, there is no book on the face of the earth sounder than the book of Mālik.” ‘Alā’ ad-Dīn Maghlaṭāy al-Ḥanafī said, “The first person to compile the ṣaḥīḥ was Mālik.” Ibn Ḥajar said, “The book of Mālik is sound by all the criteria that are demanded as proofs in the mursal, munqaṭi’ and other types of transmission.” As-Suyūṭī followed Ibn Ḥajar’s judgement and said, “It is absolutely correct to say that the Muwaṭṭa’ is sound (ṣaḥīḥ) without exception.” Al-Bukhārī and Muslim transmitted most of its ḥadīths and included them in their Ṣaḥīḥ collections. The authors of the rest of the six books, the Imām of the ḥadīth scholars, Aḥmad ibn Ḥanbal, and others did the same. But, in addition, the Muwaṭṭa’ contains a record of the practice of the people of Madīnah of the first generations, a transmission of the ethos that permeated the city and Imām Mālik’s painstaking clarification of the Sunna, the ḥadīths, the practice and legal judgements. Imam Mālik’s full name is Mālik ibn Anas ibn Mālik ibn Abī ‘Āmir al-Aṣbaḥī and he was related to Dhū Aṣbaḥ, a sub-tribe of Ḥimyar. He was instructed in the learning and recitation of the Noble Qur’ān by Imām Nāfi’ ibn ‘Abd ar-Raḥmān ibn Abī Nu’aym, the Imām of the reciters of Madīna and one of the “seven reciters”. Among the huge number of his teachers in ḥadīth and fiqh were Nāfi’, the mawlā of ‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Umar and Ibn Shihāb az-Zuhrī. He sat to give fatwā when he was seventeen years old after seventy Imāms had testified that he was worthy to give fatwā and teach. His own students included Imām ash-Shāfi’ī and Imām Muhammad ibn al-Ḥasan ash-Shaybānī the Ḥanafī mujtahid, as well as a great number of Imāms of ḥadīth and fiqh and thus he is known as Imām al-A’immah ‘the Imām of the Imāms’.


Imam Malik Ibn Anas (93 AH/711 CE – 179 AH/795 CE)

Imam Mālik’s full name is Mālik ibn Anas ibn Mālik ibn Abī ‘Āmir al-Aṣbaḥī and he was related to Dhū Aṣbaḥ, a sub-tribe of Ḥimyar.  He was instructed in the learning and recitation of the Noble Qur’ān by Imām Nāfi‘ ibn ‘Abd ar-Raḥmān ibn Abī Nu‘aym, the Imām of the reciters of Madīna and one of the ‘seven reciters’.

His own students included Imām ash-Shāfi‘ī and Imām Muhammad ibn al-Ḥasan ash-Shaybānī the Ḥanafī mujtahid, as well as a great number of Imāms of ḥadīth and fiqh, and thus he is known as Imām al-A’immah ‘the Imām of the Imāms’.

He is recognised to be the subject of the hadith from Abū Hurayra:

“The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him said, ‘There will come a time when the people will beat the livers of their camels in search of knowledge and they will not find an ‘ālim with more knowledge than the ‘ālim of Madīna.’”

About The Book

The major sins are those acts which have been forbidden by Allah in the Quran and by His Messenger (SAW) in the Sunnah (practice of the Prophet), and which have been made clear by the actions of of the first righteous generation of Muslims, the Companions of the Prophet (SAW).

There is some difference of opinion among scholars in this regard. 

Some say these major sins are seven, and in support of their position they quote the tradition: 

‘Avoid the seven noxious things’- and after having said this, the Prophet (SAW) mentioned them: 

  1. ‘associating anything with Allah; 
  2. magic; 
  3. killing one whom Allah has declared inviolate without a just case, 
  4. consuming the property of an orphan, 
  5. devouring usury, 
  6. turning back when the army advances, and 
  7. slandering chaste women who are believers but indiscreet.’ (Bukhari and Muslim)

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas said: ‘Seventy is closer to their number than seven,’ and in this book Imam Dhabi goes through the 70 Major Sins Supported by the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

An excellent book in Arabic and English side by side. Contains the 70 major sins, their descriptions and supporting Quran Ayah’s and Hadith.
