Mysteries Of The Soul Expounded
The subject of this treatise - the nature, essence, and circumstances of the human soul - is fascinating to people of all ages, faiths, and walks of life. It covers the issue of death and what happens after it. Scholars of various schools of thought differ greatly regarding the nature and essence of the soul (nafs). Is it a part of the physical body or a non-essential characteristic of it? Is it an entity consigned to dwell within the physical body?, or is it an independent essence in itself? Is the nafs the same as the ruh (spirit)? Finally, what happens to the soul upon death? Is it confined to its body and its grave? If not, is it free to move about in the unseen spiritual world and on the earth?
Kindness And Gentleness
Dr. Fadl al Ilahi | Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 121 | Size: 8 MB
Undoubtedly, the heart leans towards those who are kind and gentle. It was said a long time ago: "Make your face and your words gentle, and you will be more beloved to the people than those who give them a gift. "Likewise, it is part of human nature to turn away from severity and harsh heartedness even if it were to come from (our Prophet who is) the best of Allah the Most High's creatures. Allah the Most high says: "..And had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have broken away from you.." (Sura Aal-'Imran:159)

Allaah Has commanded us to contemplate, but few do so. This book is an adaption of a friday khutbah given by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid which explains the ways in which contemplation can beefit the believer.
Deeds of the Heart
The issue of the deeds of the hearts is an immensely important subject, and this is why many scholars have written countless books on the subject - in order to remind and encourage people to perform them. These deeds require sacrifice and exertion because one's salvation is dependant on them; moreover, the deeds of the limbs will not be performed if these of the heart are absent. Reliance upon Allaah is something that has an immense impact on a person; it is an implication of belief and is one of the finest deeds and acts of worship by which the slave can draw close to Allaah, the All-Merciful; It is one of the highest ranks of Islaamic monotheism because nothing can occur except through one relying and depending upon Allaah for it to do so.

In his usual style, the author has adorned his book with verses of the Qur'aan, sayings of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), examples of the Companions and reports from the pious predecessors. We pray that the heart rendering narrations that the author has so carefully chosen will act a means of softening our hearts, purifying our souls and permanently changing our outlook on our short lives in this world. The book is excellent mashaa Allaah. If not one page from the 24 pages this book contains does not cause you to weep, I don't know what will! May Allaah soften all our hearts and let's fear Allaah as He should be feared!

Allah may be pleased with him has said: 1. Praise be to Allah for His great gifts.

And may He deliver me from all horror and suffering in the next world.
