As salaamu alaii kumm wa rahmatullahi wa barakath,

Few weeks back bought some books…

a. The Prophetic Medicine

  • By Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah [Tibb e Nabwi]

b. How Well Do You Know The Sahabah?

  • By Maulvi Khalid Dhorat
  • Brilliant book but this copy was a gift to someone. 

c. The Travels of Ibn Battuta

  • By H. A. R. Gibb
  • This book is close to the real deal – translation of the ‘Rihla’ of Ibn Battuta and from the little I have read, its superb.  

d. Tablighi Bayanaat

  • By the late Maulana Manzoor Ahmed Nomaani (may Allah have mercy on him) compiled by Mufti Muhammed Roshan Shah Qasmi.
  • I couldn’t miss buying this compilation of speeches of the great elder of Tabligh.

e. Fruits That Heal

  • By Hakim Abdullah translated by D. Brahmi
  • Not read fully as yet but doesn’t look too useful.

f. Leading Ladies – Who Made a Difference in The Lives of Others

  • By Maulana Mufti Abdul Qadir written under supervision of Mufti Taqi Usmaani
  • Brilliant Book – its a MUST HAVE for everyone esp. for women looking for true inspiration.

Misprint on the cover - a letdown I have communicated to the publishers.

“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”  ― Jeanette Winterson (Is this what happening to me and my brother? O Allah SWT, save us, give us the taufeeq to read 'em! Ameen.)
