Islamic Sources

Postby abdulghaffar » 27 Dec 2010, 00:27

Salaamu 3aleykum my brothers and sisters,

With all of our new reverts from Ahmadiya, i feel that we need to post authentic links and offer sources to our brothers and sisters. True Islamic knowledge is available so let's share the links. I have plenty and will post some soon.

Good point. Such links have always been available on the front page: thecult.info

However, it's a while since that list was updated and I'd be happy to work with the team to update that list. Further, i am working on an update to "Life After the Cult" in video form.

Please make any suggestions that were helpful to you in this thread.

http://www.islamic-awareness.org/
This is primary a website that deals with Christian polemics. It is very scholarly and thoroughly researched. It is updated frequently to include new manuscripts and papri of the Quran. The articles are researched with the help of MSM Saifullah who is, to my knowledge, a professor of Islam in a university in the United States.

http://islamicstudies.info/maarif/
This is a tafsir of the Quran. It is quite a thorough tafsir that covered themes, explanations, and important issues. It is not grammatical in nature and does not deal much with the Arabic language owing to the fact that it is for english speaking Muslims with no background to Arabic language.

http://corpus.quran.com/
A project taken up by Leeds University to make available to study each word of the Quran in a very academic way. It is not something most Muslims will find useful, but there are tools to search for where a root is used in the Quran. It becomes very important to see how the Quran uses it's own words in other places of the Quran.

http://www.kalamullah.com/
This website is immense. It has audio, video, and books. All of them are legitimate books by legitimate scholars. It has books on 7adith, Sunneh, Quran, Aqida, fatwa issues, fiqh, and tafsir. It is a go to source for Muslims wanting to gain knowledge. As an example, Books of Ibn Taymiyyah are available as well as Al Ghazali.

http://www.hoor-al-ayn.com/
Very similar to Kallamullah.com. Some content may be the same, others may not. Contains nasheeds, books on Quran, hadith, and so on. It is much smaller in its inventory of books and material, but some things are much more rare and harder to find in English and online.

http://www.islamhouse.com/
Navigations of links are at the top. It has many many audio lectures and some books that I've never been able to find anywhere else. It is a must in anyones bookmarks.

http://www.audioislam.com/
This is similar to Islamhouse but it has only audios lectures. These are rare and very wide variety of tafsir, fiqh lectures, aqida, and other things. It is a great great source.

http://www.tafsir.com/
Tafsir al Tustari, Ibn Abbas, and Ibn Kathir are available. I have only been able to make sure of Ibn Kathir (or was it ibn abbas?) but two of the three are "there", but you will get a message saying "Tafsir does not exist" for Tustari and the other one. However, browse this site, it has links that are very useful.

http://www.islamworld.net/docs/UUQ/index.html
This is a book by Ahmed Von Denffer on Ulum Al Quran. This is a very important book to read and understand for any Muslim. It goes through the history of the Quran and how it was preserved and kept pure as text. It is a shorter version of The History of the Quranic Text, from Revelation to Compilation: A Comparative Study with the Old and New Testaments by Azami. The latter is a must read.

http://www.uga.edu/islam/quran.html#tafsir
This has a gigantic list of sources of Islamic material. You have to see it.

This is great stuff akhi. For the new site, would you be happy to include a short explanatory intro for each of these? We will give these a dedicated section and include guidance notes too if necessary.

Questions asked and answers given by shuyukh based on Quran, Sunnah, and 3ulema of classical times. A very great source for questions that aren't answered other places. It aslo contains some contemporary questions that have been answered.

Excellent idea. I'm assuming you meant "http://www.altafsir.com" brother. Just so everyone knows the Tustari and Wahidi tafsirs are available in full, when it says "tafsir does not exist" it simply means for that particular ayah you searched for a commentary does not exist. This can be quite frustrating as it does not display which ayats they have written a tafsir for and which they haven't. I would also like to add that we should should not rely on "Tafsir Ibn Abbas", it is an attributed work and 8 out of the 10 chains going back to Ibn Abbas (RA) for this tafsir are known liars. I purchased this as soon as it came out because I thought it actually was "Tafsir Ibn Abbas" in every sense of the title, only to find from the introduction from Fons Vitae that, as they say themselves they have no doubt this is NOT the work of Ibn Abbas, in addition to saying 8 out 10 links are known liars. As you can imagine, I was absolutely gutted I even wrote to Jordan, quoting them there own introduction and politely appreciated the hard work they are doing for future works but requested though I'm not asking for a refund (considering it cost me £110) they need to stop misleading people by saying this is the tafsir of Ibn Abbas (RA) when the introduction itself states that it is not. Tafsir Jalalayn is good as is Ibn Kathir. From the reply they gave me, not taking on board my request for Ibn Abbas (RA) they told me that a Tabari and Kashani translation is due Sep 2011 and Jan 2011. The Tabari (though I'm pretty sure it is selective and not in full) will be a brilliant addition and beneficial to us all, the Kashani translation, correct me if I am wrong, is a Sufi (like Tustari) work from the 14th century by Abd al-Razzaq al-Kashani who was influenced by Ibn Arabi. Speaking of Ibn Arabi, they are working on translating his tafsir which I am really looking forward to (it lays down his belief that Hazrat Isa (AS) is literally returning) as well the tafsir of Jalaluddin Suyuti, the Dur al-Manthur which is different to the other Jalalyn tafsir by Suyuti as this one explains each passage by the reports and narrations from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW), his Companions (RA) and the immediate generations following the Companions (RA). I wish they gave me a release date for it as it is going to be priceless to the English speaking Muslims! If only we knew Arabic well enough to read and understand it without a translation then we would have a wealth of knowledge available to us instead of waiting for the hard work of others who are translating these gems for us. Sorry for going on and on and off topic, the sources you have listed are good and an excellent idea.

Thank you brother.

I did mean altafsir, but the link that I gave is ibn kathir. It should be without the tafsir of ibn abbas. I appreciate your help and do let us know when those tafasir are coming out.

http://muhhsinin.blogspot.com/2009/11/way-of-life.html
It houses other links to complete pdf's of the major hadith books in english, tafsir books in pdf, books by ibn taymiyah about aqeeda found here http://muhhsinin.blogspot.com/2010/02/aqeedahtawheed.html. Look around. It has much to offer.

http://ibnalhyderabadee.wordpress.com/2 ... of-hadith/
This link contains many other links pertaining to the study of hadith. Pretty thorough despite not being up to par with actual courses of hadith studies (which requires the ability to understand arabic). The blog is a very nice one too. Great stuff.
