Book and Lecture Recommendations!

March 24, 2008

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

I just finished reading this amazing book that I thought was awesome and worth recommending on my blog.  The book is: “An Introduction to the Sciences of the Quran” by Yasir Qadhi.  This book is long and textbook-like, but it is well worth the read and full of information.  You will gain such a better love and respect for the Quran after reading it and you will learn something new in every chapter of the book.  You can buy the book here. 

Another good book by Shaykh Yasir is “Riyaa: The Hidden Shirk.”  This book is very short and can be read in one sitting and it was co-written with Bilal Philips.  Riyaa makes you think about things we may be doing unconsciously  as it is about showing-off and the like.  I would highly recommend it.  You can buy this book here.

As far as lectures go, I would highly recommend listening to Imam Anwar al-Awlaki’s lecture set entitled, “The Hereafter.”  It is an amazing CD-set that takes you from the time right before death through the grave through the Day of Judgement (including Signs of the Day of Judgement) through both Paradise and Hell-Fire.  It is an amazing lecture-set though it is quite long but still highly moving.  You can buy it here.  Anwar al-Awlaki is an amazing lecturer and all of his works are beautiful and would be highly recommended (though my favorite lecturer is still Brother Nouman Ali Khan of the Bayyinah Institute).  Imam Anwar’s lecture set on Umar bin Al-Khattab (found here) is awesome. 

If you’re looking for a good free lecture set to listen to, “Dua: Weapon of the Believer” is a solid lecture set by Shaykh Yasir and it can be found here.  Also, Shaykh Khalid Yasin has a very popular lecture entited, “The Purpose of Life” and this lecture can be found here on my blog by clicking on the Non-Muslims link at the top.

If you have any good recommendations for me, by all means, please let me know.

    You may be able to order the book via international shipping from Dar us Salaam publications ( as I believe they have an office in Pakistan. Otherwise, you can always try a place like

    However, if those options are not sound, you can listen to the audio of the book at AudioIslam (

    Hope this helps, insh’Allah.
