This vivid introduction to the heart of Islam offers a unique approach to understanding Allah, the central focus of Muslim religious expression. Drawing on history, culture, theology, politics, and the media, Bruce B. Lawrence identifies key religious practices by which Allah is revered and remembered, illuminating how the very name of Allah is interwoven into the everyday experience of millions of Muslims. For Muslims, as for adherents of other religions, intentions as well as practices are paramount in one's religious life. Lawrence elucidates how public utterances, together with private pursuits, reflect the emotive, sensory, and intellectual aspirations of the devout. Ranging from the practice of the tongue (speaking) to practices in cyberspace (online religious activities), Lawrence explores how Allah is invoked, defined, remembered, and also debated. While the practice of the heart demonstrates how Allah is remembered in Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam, the practice of the mind examines how theologians and philosophers have defined Allah in numerous contexts, often with conflicting aims. The practice of the ear marks the contemporary period, in which Lawrence locates and then assesses competing calls for jihad, or religious struggle, within the cacophony of an immensely diverse umma, the worldwide Muslim community.

It is a known fact that every language has one or more terms that are used to refer to God and sometimes to lesser deities at the same time. This is not the case with Allah. Allah is the personal name of the One true God. Nothing else can be called Allah. The term has no plural or gender. This shows its uniqueness when compared with the word "god," which can be made plural, as in "gods," or made feminine, as in "goddess." It is interesting to note that Alah is the personal name of God in Aramaic, the language of Jesus and a sister language of Arabic. The One true God is a reflection of the unique concept that Islam associates with Allah. To a Muslim, Allah is the Almighty Creator and Sustainer of the universe, Who is similar to nothing, and nothing is comparable to Him. The Prophet Muhammad was asked by his contemporaries about Allah; the answer came directly from Allah Himself in the form of a short chapter of the Quran, which is considered to be the essence of the unity or the motto of monotheism. This is chapter 112, which reads: "In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate." "Say (O Muhammad), He is Allah, the One God, the Self-Sufficient, who has not begotten, nor has been begotten, and equal to Him is not anyone." Some non-Muslims allege that God in Islam is a stern and cruel God who demands to be obeyed fully and is, consequently, not loving and kind. Nothing could be farther from the truth than this allegation. It is enough to know that, with the exception of one, each of the 114 chapters of the Quran begins with the verse, "In the name of God, the Merciful; the Compassionate." In one of the sayings of Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, we are told that: "God is more loving and kind than a mother to her dear child." On the other hand, God is also Just. Hence, evildoers and sinners must have their share of punishment, and the virtuous must have God’s bounties and favors. Actually, God’s attribute of Mercy has full manifestation in His attribute of Justice. People suffering throughout their lives for His sake should not receive similar treatment from their Lord as people who oppress and exploit others their whole lives. Expecting similar treatment for them would amount to negating the very belief in the accountability of man in the Hereafter and thereby negate all the incentives for a moral and virtuous life in this world. The following Quranic verses are very clear and straightforward in this respect. "Verily, for the Righteous are gardens of Delight, in the Presence of their Lord. Shall We then treat the people of Faith like the people of Sin? What is the matter with you? How judge you?" (Quran 68:34-36) Islam rejects characterizing God in any human form or depicting Him as favoring certain individuals or nations on the basis of wealth, power or race. He created human-beings as equals. They may distinguish themselves and get His favor through virtue and piety only. The concepts, such as God resting on the seventh day of creation, God wrestling with one of His soldiers, God being an envious plotter against mankind, or God being incarnate in any human being, are considered blasphemy from the Islamic point of view. The unique usage of Allah as a personal name of God is a reflection of Islam’s emphasis on the purity of the belief in God that is the essence of the message of all God’s messengers. Because of this, Islam considers associating any deity or personality with God as a deadly sin that God will never forgive, despite the fact that He may forgive all other sins. The Creator must be of a different nature from the things created because, if He is of the same nature as they are, He will be temporal and will therefore need a maker. It follows, therefore, that nothing is like Him. Furthermore, if the Maker is not temporal, then He must be eternal. If He is eternal, however, He cannot be caused, and if nothing caused Him to come into existence, nothing outside Him causes Him to continue to exist, which means that He must be self-sufficient. And if He does not depend on anything for the continuance of His own existence, then this existence can have no end, so the Creator is, therefore, eternal and everlasting. Hence we know that He is Self-sufficient or Self-subsistent, and Everlasting or, to use a Quranic term, Al-Qayyum: "He is the First and the Last." The Creator does not create only in the sense of bringing things into being, He also preserves them and takes them out of existence and is the ultimate cause of whatever happens to them. "God is the Creator of everything. He is the guardian over everything. Unto Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth…" (Quran 39:62-63) And God says: "No creature is there crawling on the earth, but its provision rests on God. He knows its lodging place and its repository..." (Quran 11:6)

Is Allah the God of the Bible? In any of the one hundred and fifty sects and sub-sects of Islam, the common denominator is Allah. Who is this Allah? Much has been written on the religion of Islam and its prophet; but not much is said about the god of the religion. One reason is the assumption that the god of Islam and the God of Christianity are one and the same. When, on September 11, 2001, some Muslims carried out a well-organized attack, destroying the The World Trade Center and damaging the Pentagon, a letter of last instruction from the leaders of the terrorist network was discovered. Written in Arabic, it says their mission was a service to God. Actually this was a mistranslation. The word the terrorists used is not the Arabic word for God but Allah. The Arabic word for God is Ilah. So they believed they were working for Allah, not God. Who is this Allah? Were these terrorists extremists, or were they serving the Allah of the Qur'an? The war against terrorism goes beyond overthrowing the Taliban regime in Afghanistan or even killing Osama bin Laden. The war on terror may not be won unless we understand the Allah the terrorists say inspires them. Not all Muslims are terrorists. But the terrorists' letter, which is quoted fully in chapter three, gives great insight into the Islamic religion and the motivation for religious terrorism in the world. Why have we shied away from probing the identity of the Allah of Islam? Possibly it is because if Allah is not the God of the Bible, it would force us to face many ugly facts. For example, if Allah is the true God, and the Qur'an, Islam's sacred book, is true, then Christians can be sure they are lost, no matter how zealous they may be. The reverse would also be true. It is necessary, therefore, to provide sufficient information to enable you to determine your own verdict, and answer the question: Who is this Allah? This book will do that.

Learn crucial topics and ideologies regarding Islam. Great for all seekers of knowledge, Islam, non-Muslims and Muslims who want to know more regarding their religion. Fantastic for beginners, great for Shiekhs... Insha’ALLAH [if ALLAH (s.w.t: glorified is ALLAH and exalted) permit], whatever may happen, continue reading this book until and before the moment of death arrives when all charitable actions terminate. At the present moment, countless wars are being fought, martyrs are sacrificing every second of their ephemeral lives, and countless other innocent people are being massacred hourly regarding the TRUE knowledge that is contained within this book. This knowledge encompasses and receives priority over and above all forms of knowledge. To their detriment, with utter carelessness and disregard for your SOUL’S eternal future (which is more IMPORTANT than your body’s physical future), others have chosen to conceal this drastically important and highly pertinent knowledge without any remorse whatsoever. Via my weaknesses I was unable to complete & distribute this truly eternal LIFE-SAVING knowledge to you sooner. In your prayers, I humbly request for you to please seek forgiveness for me from ALLAH (s.w.t: glorified is ALLAH and exalted). Maa’sha ALLAH (by the will of ALLAH, s.w.t: glorified is ALLAH and exalted), after an extremely anxious and highly anticipated long wait, I have completed this painstaking yet noble undertaking! True knowledge, when implemented… metamorphoses into a divine light for the individual in this life and the hereafter. Insha’ALLAH, if ALLAH (s.w.t) permit and accepts our pure, sincere and truthful intentions to learn, implement and propagate this true knowledge, the angels will spread their wings beneath our feet, our levels of belief will increase, we will receive Hidiyat (divine guidance) and become means for others to receive hidiyat (divine guidance). Innumerous tangible and intangible blessings will be showered upon us and we will attain more Rahma (mercy) from ALLAH (s.w.t). Henceforth, this Rahma (mercy) will enable us to enter the highest Jannah (paradise) which is Firdaws. Abdul Ghafur (The Slave of The All Forgiving)

The exact number of prophets and messengers sent by Allah is not known, but the Qur'an makes clear that all of the prophets were sent to various nations to preach Islamic monotheism. Muslims believe that all the Divine Messengers including those in common with Judaism and Christianity - conveyed the same message of true monotheism and submission to the one God, Allah. Belief in these prophets and messengers is an essential part of the Islamic faith and Muslims do not differentiate between them, according them all the same respect and reverence. Darussalam is proud to present the abridged English translation of Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah (The Beginning and The End), by the renowned scholar Abu Al-Fida, 'Imad ad-Deen Isma'eel bin 'Umar bin Katheer (Ibn Katheer), recounting the stories of the prophets and their nations.

Providing a detailed perspective of Sayyid Qutb’s writings, this book examines: the relation between the specifics of the concept of hakimiyyah and that of jahiliyyah the force and intent of these two concepts how Qutb employs their specifics to critically assess the political establishments like nationalism and capitalism the influence of the two concepts on Egypt’s radical Islamic movements, where many of al’Qa’ida’s lieutenants, officers, ideologues and conspirators were fomented Shedding light on Islamic radicalism and its intellectual origins The Power of Sovereignty presents new analysis on the intellectual legacy of one of the most important thinkers of modern Islamic revival.

An explosion. Two seconds later the report of a gunshot. In a wisp, Jake Braddock''s entire life drastically changes.

In Eight Ball Justice, Dade County Homicide Detectives Sherm Walters and Sebastan Xollo initially assume these are simply revenge crimes. The year before, Jake, then head of security at Miami International Airport, played an important role in not only thwarting a bioterror attack on the airport, but also capturing Osama bin Laden''s eldest son. One group. When Sherm''s close friend, Dr. Roxanne Shockley, draws their attention to the suspicious death of a Middle Easterner they realize they are in a "pissin'' match with the big boys". Two groups. Al-Qaeda, and another. As they delve further into the crimes, they find themselves pitted against seemingly invincible foes. Dr, Roxanne Shockley, Foxy Roxy to her friends, a forensic pathologist and romantic interest of Sherm''s, points them in the right direction early in their investigation. Roxy''s brother, Mike Shockley, a former Vietnam War Medal of Honor winner and Rhodes scholar, helps the Sherm and Sebastan see the entire scope of the crime. It''s more than they can fathom. The investigation starts in Miami Florida and ends up in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Along the way every effort is made to silence the duo as they dissect out the meticulously conceived stratagem of the operation. The fate of all involved, including Jake''s infant son, hangs in the balance until the tumultuous conclusion.
