In the Footsteps of the Prophet Book Excerpt:

Named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most important innovators of the century, Tariq Ramadan is a leading Muslim scholar, with a large following especially among young European and American Muslims. Now, in his first book written for a wide audience, he offers a marvelous biography of the Prophet Muhammad, one that highlights the spiritual and ethical teachings of one of the most influential figures in human history. In the Footsteps of the Prophet is a fresh and perceptive look at Muhammad, capturing a life that was often eventful, gripping, and highly charged. Ramadan provides both an intimate portrait of a man who was shy, kind, but determined, as well as a dramatic chronicle of a leader who launched a great religion and inspired a vast empire. More important, Ramadan presents the main events of the Prophet's life in a way that highlights his spiritual and ethical teachings. The book underscores the significance of the Prophet's example for some of today's most controversial issues, such as the treatment of the poor, the role of women, Islamic criminal punishments, war, racism, and relations with other religions. Selecting those facts and stories from which we can draw a profound and vivid spiritual picture, the author asks how can the Prophet's life remain -- or become again -- an example, a model, and an inspiration? And how can Muslims move from formalism -- a fixation on ritual -- toward a committed spiritual and social presence? In this thoughtful and engaging biography, Ramadan offers Muslims a new understanding of Muhammad's life and he introduces non-Muslims not just to the story of the Prophet, but to the spiritual and ethical riches of Islam.

When Prophets Die Book Excerpt:

When the charismatic founder/leader of a religious movement dies, the popular belief is that the movement usually disintegrates. However, many new religions not only survive but prosper, despite leadership transition. In this book, prominent scholars examine what happened to eleven new movements following the deaths of their leaders, and why. An Introduction by J. Gordon Melton serves to integrate the case studies.

Satire and the Hebrew Prophets Book Excerpt:

In this book, Thomas Jemielity demonstrates the striking relationship between satire and Hebrew prophecy by reviewing the role of ridicule in both and analyzing questions of nature, structure, form, and audience. This pioneering study makes compelling reading for all interested in the Bible and Western literature. The Literary Currents in Biblical Interpretation series explores current trends within the discipline of biblical interpretation by dealing with the literary qualities of the Bible: the play of its language, the coherence of its final form, and the relationships between text and readers. Biblical interpreters are being challenged to take responsibility for the theological, social, and ethical implications of their readings. This series encourages original readings that breach the confines of traditional biblical criticism.

The Struggle of the Shi is in Indonesia Book Excerpt:

The Struggle of the Shi‘is in Indonesia is a pioneering work. It is the first comprehensive scholarly examination in English of the development of Shiism in Indonesia. It focuses primarily on the important period between 1979 and 2004 – a period of nearly a quarter of a century that saw the notable dissemination of Shi’i ideas and a considerable expansion of the number of Shi’i adherents in Indonesia. Since Islam in Indonesia is overwhelmingly Sunni, this development of Shiism in a predominantly Sunni context is a remarkable phenomenon that calls for careful, critical investigation. There is also an important examination of the principal ideas underlying the Madhab Ahl al-Bayt, the Imamate and Imam Madhi, Ja‘fari jurisprudence and ritual piety. Appropriately, in his discussion, Zulkifli provides a succinct outline of contrasts with Sunni ideas and practice. He also examines the publishing efforts that underpinned the dissemination of Shi’i ideas and the founding of IJABI (Ikatan Jamaah Ahlul Bait Indonesia) in July 2000 for the propagation of Ahl al-Bayt teachings. Given the Indonesian context, Zulkifli is also concerned with Sunni reactions to these Shi’i developments – a story that continues to unfold to the present. This book as a work of great value and significance for the continuing understanding of the richness and complexity of Indonesian Islam.

Globalization Modernization and Education in Muslim Countries Book Excerpt:

Globalisation and modernisation are the buzzwords of the new millennium. They serve to sharpen the focus on the dynamic nature of political, economic and social systems and, in this book, the editor and contributors attempt to locate educational changes in a selected number of Muslim countries within the over-arching global scene. There has been considerable debate about the legitimacy of these terms and both have inspired definitions, nuances and accompanying emotions that run the whole gambit from welcoming acceptance to murderous aggressions. Terms like ancient, medieval or modern, when describing eras in the history of Europe, with the most recent one being referred to as post-modern, have been strongly debated. And, within the broad sweep of globalisation it is argued that there are identifiable stages, with many making for exclusive definitions, others inclusive.

That Prophet Revealed Book Excerpt:

That Prophet Revealed brings a detailed description of the prophecies of the Old and New Testament, citing sources from Jewish and Christian texts. It brings forward the coming of Elias, the Messiah and "That Prophet" who was described in earlier times. By comparing Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them), it is able to clearly show the presence of Muhammad (pbuh) in the Bible and his closeness to Moses (pbuh) in a variety of ways. By examining references to the advent of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) from Biblical, Quranic and historical sources, That Prophet Revealed exposes the false notions that obscure the connection of the Arabs and the Last Prophet of Islam to the earlier Prophets of monotheism. Through the examination of the clear covenant of God given to early monotheistic Prophets and Messengers and the hidden descriptions of Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh) and his family, as portrayed in this work, will attempt to unearth one of the greatest cover-ups in history.

Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him Book Excerpt:

How would one know their role & life purpose unless one receives clear & practical instructions of what God wants & expects of him or her? Here comes the need for Prophethood. Thus, God has sent thousands of Messengers & Prophets to mankind to convey His Message & communicate to us. Every nation on Earth received a Prophet. They all preached the same general Message that there is only one deity worthy of worship. He is the One & Only God, without a partner, son, daughter, or equal. God sent Messengers & Prophets to guide humanity from worshipping created beings & to worship their Creator, the Creator of all things. The Prophets came to teach their people about who their Creator is, how to build a relationship with Him, & how to love Him. The Prophets taught their people that life is only a test, where the successful will enter Paradise eternally, & the unsuccessful will enter the ultimate punishment in the afterlife. Out of the Infinite Mercy & Love of God, God continued to send Messengers with Books from God to guide humanity-- starting with Prophet Adam, including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob, Moses, Prophet Jesus, & Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon them all. Many of the Prophets are found in Jewish & Christian traditions. All the previous Messengers & Books other than the Holy Quran & Prophet Muhammad were sent down only to a specific group of people & were only meant to be followed for a particular period. For example, Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, was one of God's mightiest Messengers, who were sent down with the same general Message of all the previous Prophets but was only sent to the Children of Israel—the nation that lived before us, as their final Prophet because they were disobeying the commandments of God & veering away from the laws sent down by the previous Messenger, Moses, PBHM. Whenever God would send Messengers with Revelation, after they passed, people would distort & change the Revelations of God. What was pure Revelation from God-- would be polluted with myths, words of men, superstitions, irrational philosophical ideologies, & idol worship. The religion of God was lost in a plethora of religions. Such as how Prophet Jesus PBHM, was sent to reform the previous Message sent before him by the previous Messenger, Moses, PBHM. Prophet Mohammad came to reform Prophet Jesus’ Message since it was distorted by his followers & did not survive in its original form. When humanity was in the depth of the dark ages, God the Almighty sent his last & final Messenger to mankind, Prophet Muhamad, peace be upon him, & his final Revelation, the Quran, to redeem humanity. ❤️ Prophet Muhammad—A summarized story of God’s Last & Final Prophet ❤️ aims to introduce Prophet Muhammad PBUH, derived from early Islamic Sources, helping you better understand who Prophet Muhammad was & instill a love for him. Studying the story & life of Prophet Muhammad is the best way to develop that love for our Prophet. Studying the life of Prophet Muhammad is an obligation given to us by our Creator & helps us better understand God’s final Book, the Holy Quran, & its context. Sources from the Quran, Hadith, & Seerah (Sirah) Books from Ibn Ishaq, Ibn Kathir, Ibn Hisham, & Ar-Raheeq Al-Makhtum (The Sealed Nectar-- Ar Raheeq Al Maktoum by Safiur Rahman Mubarakpuri).

Biblical Figures in the Islamic Faith Book Excerpt:

"Vicchio believes that by understanding how much Muslim tradition overlaps with the biblical traditions of Judaism and Christianity, we might begin to expose a wedge of common ground on which understanding and respect might begin to be built. "Vicchio begins with a brief introduction sketching some fundamentals of Muslim history and culture, and clearing away some common misconceptions. His main goal, however, is to give us a detailed look at the treatment of biblical figures in the literature of Islam. The broad range of his research and presentation is startling. He begins with the Qur'an but continues on to the collected writing of the roughly two hundred years after Mohammed (Hadith, Sunnah, Akhbar) that came to be regarded as authoritative in the various traditions that developed in early Islam. He then traces the interest in these biblical figures on into modern treatments of the role of these figures in Muslim scholarship and how these figures are understood and used in the traditions of Islam yet today. "The result of Vicchio's scholarship and presentation will be a revelation to most Christian and Jewish readers. It has become somewhat commonplace to refer to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as the three Abrahamic faiths. This shows a beginning awareness of the beginnings of each of these three great religions, birthed in the Middle East, in a common ancestor, Abraham (Ibrahim). Abraham's faithfulness and his closeness to God make his a revered figure in each of these three great faiths, and for each Abraham is a beginning of the story of the particular relationship between God and the people of each of these religions." --from the Foreword

Prophets of the Great Spirit Book Excerpt:

Prophets of the Great Spirit offers an in-depth look at the work of a diverse group of Native American visionaries who forged new, syncretic religious movements that provided their peoples with the ideological means to resist white domination. By blending ideas borrowed from Christianity with traditional beliefs, they transformed ?high? gods or a distant and aloof creator into a powerful, activist deity that came to be called the Great Spirit. These revitalization leaders sought to regain the favor of the Great Spirit through reforms within their societies and the inauguration of new ritual practices. Among the prophets included in this study are the Delaware Neolin, the Shawnee Tenkswatawa, the Creek ?Red Stick? prophets, the Seneca Handsome Lake, and the Kickapoo Kenekuk. Covering more than a century, from the early 1700s through the Kickapoo Indian removal of the Jacksonian Era, the prophets of the Great Spirit sometimes preached armed resistance but more often used nonviolent strategies to resist white cultural domination. Some prophets rejected virtually all aspects of Euro-American culture. Others sought to assure the survival of their culture through selective adaptation. Alfred A. Cave explains the conditions giving rise to the millenarian movements in detail and skillfully illuminates the key histories, personalities, and legacies of the movement. Weaving an array of sources into a compelling narrative, he captures the diversity of these prophets and their commitment to the common goal of Native American survival.

Prophet Against Prophet Book Excerpt:

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. Throughout the history of the Israelite kingdoms there were prophets who prophesied nothing but favorable consequences for the actions of their political leaders. Opposing them were prophets who drew a distinction between the will of Yahweh for his people and the opportunistic aims of the monarchs. In the Micaiah narratives of 1 Kings 22 are seen two early stages in the development of this ideological conflict. Simon John De Vries examines thoroughly these early stages in order to find and understand the root causes of the conflict that led finally to national ruin. De Vries approaches the material with a comprehensive methodology that applies textual criticism, literary and form criticism, and tradition history or redaction criticism. Another distinctive feature of the study is that it categorizes all the prophet legends in the Former Prophets collection according to subgenres, thereby more clearly seeing the place and function of 1 Kings 22 in its context.

Al Qur an the Guidance for Mankind English Translation of the Meanings of Al Qur an with Arabic Book Excerpt:

Al-Qur'an, the Guidance for mankind, is a unique translation of the Holy Qur'an in contemporary American English. It includes the Biography of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, his mission as a Prophet, his ranking as in the human history. Text is paragraphed by theme and theme is written in the margins on each page for easy reference. Its features include - (1) Field Testing the Communication of Divine Message: The unique feature of this translation is its field testing for over 3 1/2 years to improve the communication and understanding of the Divine Message. Translation passages were given to the New Muslim and Non-Muslim high school and college students for reading under the supervision of various Ulema (scholars). After reading, the person was asked to explain as to what he/she understood from the passage. If his/her understanding was the same as is in the Arabic Text of the Holy Qur'an then we concluded that we have been successful in conveying the Divine Message properly. If his/her understanding was different than what the Qur'anic verses were stating, we kept on rewording the translation until those verses were understood properly. It was tremendous patience on part of the participants. May Allah reward them all. (2) Simplicity: In this translation Simple Language and Direct Approach is used for appealing to the common sense of scholars and common people. (3) Understandability: There are no foot notes to refer and no commentary or lengthy explanations to read. All necessary explanations have been incorporated right there in the text with italic type setting to differentiate from the translation of the meanings of Qur'anic Arabic Text. (4) Outline of Pertinent Information: Before the start of each Srah, information relating to its Period of Revelation, Major Issues, Divine Laws and Guidance has been presented as an outline. Then a summary of the preceding events has been tabulated for the reader to understand the histo! rical background to grasp the full meaning of the Divine Message. (5) Reviews, Input and Approvals: This project was started in 1991 and initial draft completed in 1994. Then the Translation was sent to different Ulema (Scholars) in Town and throughout United States for their review and input. After their reviews and input it was sent to Jme Al-Azhar Al-Sharif in Egypt, Ummal Qur in Saudi Arabia and International Islamic University in Pakistan for their review, input and approval. This translation was published after their reviews and approvals.
