Al Quran & Tafsir
Tafsir al-Jalalayn (Quranic Exegesis)£40.00
Explanation of the whole Quran in English in one Book
The publication of this book is a landmark in the history of Islamic literature in English. With this work, for the first time, a complete translation of one of the great classical commentaries on the Holy Quran becomes available to English-speaking readers.
Tafsir al-Jalalayn, meaning ‘The Commentary of the Two Jalals’ is named after its two authors: Jalalu’d-Din al-Mahalli (1389-1459), who wrote half of it, and his student, Jalalu’d-Din as-Suyuti (1445-1505), one of the greatest Muslim scholars of all, who completed it after al-Mahallis death.
For half a millennium Tafsir al-Jalalayn has been considered the essential first step in the study of the meanings of the Quran by teachers and students throughout the Islamic world Although it is among the shortest and simplest of the complete commentaries, it is at the same time both wide-ranging and profound
This translation gives non-Arabic speakers access to one of the seminal works of classical tafsir literature. It is hoped that it will prove a valuable aid to the correct understanding of the Quranic Revelation throughout the English-speaking world.
Jalalu’d-din muhammad ibn ahmad al-mahalli (791-864/1389-1459) of Cairo was a versatile, scholar who excelled in jurisprudence, theology, grammar, rhetoric, and Quranic commentary. He was known for his scrupulousness, fear of Allah, and fearlessness in upholding the truth. Al-Mahalli was offered the highest judicial positions but refused them. He taugh jurisprudence in the Mu’ayyadiyya and Barquqiyya madrasas.
Abstinent and ascetic, he lived on what he earned by trade. His most famous work is his Quranic commentary, Tafsir al-Jalalayn, which he began halfway through the text with Surat al-Kahf, ending with an-Nas and al-Fatiha.. Although he died before he could start the other half, the work was completed by his student, Jalalu’d-Din as-Suyuti.
Al-Mahallis other books include commentaries on Jami’ al-Jawami’, al-Burda, al-Manahij fi’l-fiqh, al-Waraqat fi’l-usul, Kitab al Jihad.
Abd al-Rahman ibn Kamal al-Din Abi Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn Sabiq al-Din, Jalal al-Din al-Misri al-Suyuti al-Shafi`i al-Ash`ari, also known as Ibn al-Suyuti (849-911AH /1445-1505),
the mujtahid imam and renewer of the tenth Islamic century, foremost hadith master, encyclopedist, historian, and biographer and probably one of the most prolific of all Islamic writers. There are an enormous number of his essays and treatises preserved today. A number of his writings concerned scientific topics or issues related to natural science and food and regimen, amongst other things. From Asyut in Egypt, he was among the most renowned and prolific Muslim scholars of all time. He wrote more than 300 books, covering every aspect of the Islamic sciences. He memorized the Quran at the age of eight, and then went on to study with more than 150 scholars. He travelled extensively in his quest for knowledge to Damascus, Hijaz, Yemen, India, Morocco, and the lands south of Morocco, as well as in Egypt.
Al-Suyuti devoted his life to learning, teaching and writing. He was noble, abstinent and self-sufficient, distancing himself from people of rank and power and living on what he earned by teaching. Major writings of al-Suyuti that remain widely used today include al-Itqan, on the Quranic sciences; and Tafsir al-Jalalayn, which he completed when only 22.

Tajweed Qur’an with meaning translation in English and transliteration£34.99
The idea behind the Color Coded Tajweed Holy Quran:
Based on a practical understanding of phonology, we have colour-coded the place of some letters to facilitate the correct recitation of the holy Quran.
This had enabled us to classify these letters within three possible categories to enhance the reader’s knowledge and remembrance of Tajweed rules, they are:
1. 1. The letters which requires expanded vocalization: we used red color to highlight these letters.
2. 2. The letters which is nasalized: these letters are green in color.
3. 3. The dark blue color indicates the emphatic of the letter (R), the blue color indicates the unrest letters-
4. echoing sound- (qualquala), while the letters which are written but are not pronounced are gray in color.
The reader will very easily get used to reciting the quran by using colors just as he got used to stopping at red lights and passing though green lights.
By engaging in this sublime act, the reader will find him/herself applying 24 rules of Tajweed with ease and precision while his/her mind is left free to contemplate and understand the meaning of Holy Quran.

Introducing The Quran To Non-Muslims£6.00
A major misunderstanding is prevalent not only among non-Muslims but among Muslims too that the Quran is of Muslims or for Muslims. This is far removed from reality. The Quran is addressed to all of mankind and keeps a treasure open to anyone who approaches to it with an open heart and unprejudiced mind.
‘Introducing the Quran to non-Muslims’ is an endeavour in the direction of presenting a proper introduction of the Quran to non-Muslims and ignorant Muslims. In writing this introductory book, the author has kept in mind that he is presenting it to a person whose knowledge of Islam is at a minimal level but who is eager to know the main points of the Quran in clear, plain and unambiguous language. Quran is a collection of wisdom which can be adopted by the most intelligent of men, the greatest of philosophers and the most skilful of politicians. This book is written in a manner as if the reader is sitting with the author engaged in a dialogue. The presentation of the book is not in an academic form but it is more akin to a student’s handbook; understandable to laypersons and to those even with an initial knowledge of Islam. Apart from dealing with the usual social, moral, spiritual, legal, military and political frontiers, it also touches authentically upon scientific spheres. An amalgamation of around thirty chapters and sub-chapters all well researched and critically examined articles, this book may be esteemed as one of the finest handbooks of reference not only for non-Muslims but for even the Muslim readers curious to study the Quran other than for holy purposes. The book on one hand addresses the dynamics of the Quran in scientific references and on the other, convincingly answers all doubts pointing towards the huge differences which lie between the religion explained and the religion practiced.
