The Quranic Ten Commandments Volume II Book Excerpt:

Filling a gap in the current literature, the author presents the first detailed study in English on the Quranic ten commandments as depicted from Surah Al An'am, verses (6:151, 152 and 153). The study is presented in two volumes. Volume I* covered an introduction and the first five Quranic commandments; and Volume II analyzed the last five commandments. The full meaning of each commandment is shown by studying the Quranic verses related to the subject, as well as the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions. With extensive research and careful selection of Quranic verses and reliable sources of Prophet Muhammad's traditions, this book would be beneficial to students and teachers of schools and academic institutions, religions comparative studies, Quranic study groups, interfaith group dialogues, as well as any Muslim or non-Muslim who is asking: "Is there anything in the Quran similar to the Ten Commandments in the Bible?

The Quranic Ten Commandments Vol 1 Ed 2 Book Excerpt:

The ten commandments are the basic rules of morality in the three Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The purpose of these commandments is to guide the believers, their families, and their communities toward God's straight path that guarantees one's happiness and success in this life and the Hereafter. While numerous books were published on the Biblical ten commandments, unfortunately, very little is known about the Quranic ten commandments, and most people do not even know about their existence. The following is a list of these Quranic commandments as depicted and abbreviated from Surah Al An'Am (6:151-153), and a brief statement on the main topics discussed: 1. Do not associate anything with God: Monotheism, or the Oneness of God, as the foundation of the Islamic creed, God's unique and absolute attributes, and the relationship between man and his creator. 2. Be good to your parents: The many aspects of goodness to our parents, dealing with misguided parents, and the problem of parents abused by their own children. 3. Do not kill your children because of poverty: Islamic view on abortion and infanticide in ancient and modern times 4. Do not even come near shameful deeds: The causes and consequences of committing shameful deeds i.e. adultery, fornication, incest, and homosexuality. 5. Do not kill any human soul, except for a just cause: Human life is sacred and must be protected; Islamic view on the termination of human life for committing adultery, apostasy, highway robbery, murder, killing in a just war, suicide, euthanasia, and honor killing. 6. Do not touch the orphan's property, except to improve it: Islam stance on the treatment and legal ruling to protect and support orphans, the weakest elements of the society 7. Give full measure and full weight with equity: Islamic moral values in commercial dealings 8. Speak justly even it concerns a close relative: Islam moral values in achieving justice 9. Fulfill any covenants you made in God's name: Islam moral values in fulfilling commitments and pledges 10. Follow God's straight path, and do not follow other paths: Continuously assess your place on God's straight path, implement improvement plans, and monitor progress Filling a gap in current literature, Dr. Naguib presents the first detailed study in English on each Quranic commandment and its related moral issues in ancient and modern times. The study is prepared in two volumes. The first volume covered an introduction and the first five Quranic Commandments as listed above. The full meaning of each commandment is shown by finding the entire Quran's teachings on that subject, as well as the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions.

The Monotheists Jews Christians and Muslims in Conflict and Competition Volume II Book Excerpt:

The world's three great monotheistic religions have spent most of their historical careers in conflict or competition with each other. And yet in fact they sprung from the same spiritual roots and have been nurtured in the same historical soil. This book--an extraordinarily comprehensive and approachable comparative introduction to these religions--seeks not so much to demonstrate the truth of this thesis as to illustrate it. Frank Peters, one of the world's foremost experts on the monotheistic faiths, takes Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and after briefly tracing the roots of each, places them side by side to show both their similarities and their differences. Volume I, The Peoples of God, tells the story of the foundation and formation of the three monotheistic communities, of their visible, historical presence. Volume II, The Words and Will of God, is devoted to their inner life, the spirit that animates and regulates them. Peters takes us to where these religions live: their scriptures, laws, institutions, and intentions; how each seeks to worship God and achieve salvation; and how they deal with their own (orthodox and heterodox) and with others (the goyim, the pagans, the infidels). Throughout, he measures--but never judges--one religion against the other. The prose is supple, the method rigorous. This is a remarkably cohesive, informative, and accessible narrative reflecting a lifetime of study by a single recognized authority in all three fields. The Monotheists is a magisterial comparison, for students and general readers as well as scholars, of the parties to one of the most troubling issues of today--the fierce, sometimes productive and often destructive, competition among the world's monotheists, the siblings called Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Human Development in the Indian Context Volume II Book Excerpt:

This book is the sequel to Human Development in the Indian Context: A Socio-cultural Focus, Volume 1. A contextual complement to its prequel, this volume presents the major socio-psychological and cultural influences on the development of an Indian. This volume analyses development of person from childhood to adolescence in the Indian context. The author incorporates psychological, sociological, anthropological and even economic and socio-political dimensions that affect development, giving the work multi-disciplinary breadth. It has a futuristic perspective and focuses academic attention on social reality frames as well as on indigenized constructs, attempting to analyze through empirical data the development theories relevant to the Indian subject. While most books on the subject are based on Western patterns and examples, which are vastly different from the Indian setting, this book is context-specific and content-sensitive to the Indian psyche. It culminates its discussions with identifying the future foci that could give empirical information for creating a theoretical base on the development of the Indian.

"A Dictionary of Islam: Being a cyclopedia of the doctrines, rites, ceremonies, and customs, together with the technical and theological terms, of the Muhammadan religion" by Thomas Patrick Hughes is one of the first educational texts regarding Islam that could be considered geared towards a non-muslim audience. Aimed at providing a comprehensive yet succinct knowledge of the traditions of the Islamic faith, Hughes set the groundwork, though at times insensitively, for understanding the culture that to many at the time seemed far removed from one's own.

JESUS IS COMING SOON Book Excerpt:

This book will open your eyes, your heart, and your Spirit as you journey through each letter written to the Church. It is very much like the previous book, “Jesus is Coming-Soon, Are You Rapture Ready?” -- which was penned in the same manner as the letters written to the Church, by the Apostle Paul. The Pauline Letters, “Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon,” were written under the guise of the Holy Spirit. Each letter, in “Jesus is Coming Soon: Book II, Are You Walking In Wisdom?” as well as the previous book, “Jesus is Coming-Soon, Are You Rapture Ready?” are both written under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit for today’s Church. This book contains thirty one letters. It addresses distinct circumstances of the End Time Church. It can be read in succession or by a selection of the topic that interest you most. Each letter stands alone and is not to be considered a prerequisite of another. This book is meant to revive you and launch you into the newness of life. It will prick your conscience and cause you to check your walk with Christ.

The Great Leap Fraud Book Excerpt:

Based on a reassessment of primary documents from the beginning of Judaism through to the Reformation, author A. J. Deus evaluates the Judaic scriptures of the Jews, the Christians, and the Muslims for their potential to stir hatred, violence, and terrorism. He searches for messages in the scriptures that may alter the economic behavior of societies. In this, the second volume of The Great Leap-Fraud, Deus exposes the frauds that overrun the Islamic faith. He focuses on the scriptural foundation of the Muslims and explains the status of terrorism, Jihad, and human rights in the historical context. Tying history to contemporary issues, Deus puts the evidence together that shows how the Jews used the doctrinal difference of the time to heave themselves into power and redeem Israel. He demonstrates how societies and economies have changed because of religion and shows the consequences of those who preach hatred against humanity. The findings in The Great Leap-Fraud are highly relevant to the crisis in the Middle East and the poor world: Intellectual framework and social norms in four Judaic religions Social organization in the industry of religion Interaction mechanism of violence and terrorism between believers and nonbelievers Economic development and religiosity The working of the secularization process In The Great Leap-Fraud, Deus argues that religious freedom poses the biggest threat to humanity, and he calls for the regulation of religion as an industry. He encourages citizens to look at religious history through unbiased eyes. See http://www.ajdeus.org for more information, previews and articles.

IS THE QURAN THE WORD OF GOD Book Excerpt:

IS THE QURAN THE WORD OF GOD? Is Islam the One True Faith? This book covers the worldview, practices, and history of Islam and the Quran. This book is designed as an apologetic evangelistic tool for Christians, as they come across Muslims in their daily lives, as well as to inform them, as a protection again the misleading media. The non-Muslims need to hear these truths about Islam and the Quran so they can have an accurate understanding of the Muslim mindset that leads to their actions. Islam is the second largest religion in the world. Radical Islam has taken the world by storm, and the “fake media” has genuinely misled their audience for the sake of political correctness. This book is not a dogmatic attack on Islam and the Quran but rather an uncovering of the lies and describing of the truths. The reader will be introduced to the most helpful way of viewing the evidence objectively. We will answer the question of whether the Quran is a literary miracle, as well as is there evidence that the Quran is inspired by God, along with is the Quran harmonious and consistent, and is the Quran from God or man? We will also examine Islamic teachings, discuss the need to search for the truth, as well as identify the book of truth. We will look at how Islam views the Bible. Finally, we will take up the subjects of Shariah Law, the rise of radical Islam, Islamic eschatology, and how to effectively witness to Muslims.

The Ten Commandments Book Excerpt:

The founders of the United States were well aware of religious differences in the new nation. Oppression had forced varied European religious groups to seek homes elsewhere, some in the new world of America. Governmental pressures toward conformity in religion had in the past led to corruption and civil strife. Thus, Congress made a dual assertion in its First Amendment to the Constitution: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." However, the ethical foundations of American society--and therefore its laws--intermingle with the moral codes of religions, including the Judeo-Christian Ten Commandments. This handbook helps bring understanding and meaning to the controversies that have arisen in present day society over the application of the Ten Commandments to public law and moral problems. Applications can be logical and legal, or can violate the separation of church and state called for in the First Amendment. Part One provides background on the Ten Commandments. It gives the various versions found in the Old Testament, and explains the non-Israelite influences on those versions (the Hammurabi Code, for example). The moral thinking of the ancient Mesopotamian, Egyptian and Hebrew cultures is examined. The modern Jewish tradition is detailed, as well as the different interpretations placed on the Ten Commandments by Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans and other Protestants. Part Two focuses on the modern controversies, assessing the differing sides of each. Among the many controversies covered are government funding of faith-based charities, posting the Ten Commandments in public buildings, science versus religion in schools, prayer in public places, blue laws, stem cell research, cloning, euthanasia, capital punishment, abortion and war, racial profiling and covenant marriages.

The History of The Quranic Text from Revelation to Compilation Book Excerpt:

This expansive book provides unique insights into the holy text’s immaculate preservation, as well as exploring many of the accusations leveled against it. The reception of divine revelations, Prophet Muhammad's role in disseminating and compiling these verses, and the setting of the text’s final external shape are scientifically examined alongside such topics as the origins of Arabic, the so-called Mushaf of Ibn Masud, and the strict methodology employed in assembling textual fragments. By way of comparison, the author investigates the histories of the Old and New Testaments, relying entirely on Judeo-Christian sources, and uncovers a startling range of alterations in the biblical Scriptures. Using this as a springboard, he illustrates convincingly that Western research into Islam’s Holy Book is motivated by more than mere curiosity, and has no scientific bearing on the Quran's integrity. This monumental effort, a scholarly work composed in an impassioned tone, provides a welcome foundation for sincere study at a time when assailing the Quran has become all too common.

The Bible in Arabic Book Excerpt:

From the first centuries of Islam to well into the Middle Ages, Jews and Christians produced hundreds of manuscripts containing portions of the Bible in Arabic. Until recently, however, these translations remained largely neglected by Biblical scholars and historians. In telling the story of the Bible in Arabic, this book casts light on a crucial transition in the cultural and religious life of Jews and Christians in Arabic-speaking lands. In pre-Islamic times, Jewish and Christian scriptures circulated orally in the Arabic-speaking milieu. After the rise of Islam--and the Qur'an's appearance as a scripture in its own right--Jews and Christians translated the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament into Arabic for their own use and as a response to the Qur'an's retelling of Biblical narratives. From the ninth century onward, a steady stream of Jewish and Christian translations of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament crossed communal borders to influence the Islamic world. The Bible in Arabic offers a new frame of reference for the pivotal place of Arabic Bible translations in the religious and cultural interactions between Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

This book is a compilation of Maha Avtar Babaji’s lectures, which were recorded in his Kriya Yoga Ashram in Nainital, India, in the years 2004 to 2008. It was Babaji’s wish, that his message should be compiled and printed in a concise version. His lectures were therefore dismantled and compiled according to topics. It was however the declared goal for the compilation, to reproduce Babaji’s sayings as well as possible in his own words.
