THE KASHFUL MAHJUB (UNVEILING THE VEILED)
The Earliest Persian Treatise on Sufism
by Syed Ali Bin Uthman al-Hujweri
476 pages, Paperback (ASN)

Kashful Mahjub, originally in Persian, was written at the request of a student of Sufism at the time, who had asked the shaikh to compile a comprehensive study on tasawwuf (Sufism) as a guide for spiritual aspirants. Although al-Hujweri was a master in the science of Islamic scholasticism and his judgments based on logic, the conclusions he arrives at are the result of his deep spiritual experience, where he shows the absence of any conflict between real Sufism and Islamic Shariah. Starting from the life of the Prophet’s brimful experience of Divine nearness, Presence, Union and Communion, this book describes the spiritual experiences of the Companions of the Prophet, Companions of the Companions (tabi’in), their Companions (taba-tabi’in), and the Imams (heads) of the four schools of Islamic law (Ahli-Sunnah-wal-Jama’ah), showing in truth, “when Sufism was made to leave Islam,” and that it is not the so called question of “when Sufism ‘entered’ Islam.” This book also explains the various aspects of Sufism in a thorough yet simple manner.

ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION
Contemporary Islamic Legal & Ethical Perspectives
by Abul Fadl Mohsin Ebrahim
164 pages, Paperback (ASN)

Notwithstanding the fact the different types of organ transplantation are aimed at providing the quality of life, such procedures are perceived differently in the Islamic world. The question is not whether it is right or wrong for Muslims to opt for organ transplantation. Muslims follow the Shari’ah and therefore ask whether Shari’ah sanctions it. Since the Shari’ah is silent on this issue, one seeks guidance from the science of Islamic Jurisprudence. It is on this basis that its permissibility may be argued on the ground of “necessity” i.e. that is necessary for the betterment and preservation of human and animal life. However, there are certain juridical principles which could in reality be advanced to restrict this permissibility. The author sheds light on all of them. Insofar as the whole issue of organ transplantation is concerned, the reader should bear in mind that both the Qur’an and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAAS) neither sanction it nor condemn it.

THE BIBLE THE QUR'AN AND SCIENCE
The Holy Criptures examined in the light of modern knowledge
by Maurice Buccaille
384 pages, Paperback (Dar Al Wahi)

In his objective study of the texts, Maurice Bucaille clears away many preconceived ideas about the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Quran. He tries, in this collection of Writings, to separate what belongs to Revelation from what is the product of error or human interpretation. His study sheds new light on the Holy Scriptures. At the end of a gripping account, he places the Believer before a point of cardinal importance: the continuity of a expression that differ in the course of time. It leads us to meditate upon those factors which, in our day, should spiritually - unite rather than divide-Jews, Christians and Muslims.
