Commanders of the Muslim Army

Mahmood Ahmad Ghadanfar

This book is about the lives of those noble Companions and Commanders who led the Islamic forces in the violent and strife-torn arenas of conflict against the Kuffar (disbelievers). They struck terror in the hearts of the enemy and the strong forts and palaces of Caesar and Chosroes trembled before their might. However in this compilation, there are not only the stories of the battlefields but also the stories of bravery and courage, valor and piety, austerity and simplicity. These stones [...]

Golden Age & Decline of Islamic Civilisation, The

S.E. Al-Djazairi

During the golden age of islamic civilisation the islamic world led in practically every area of knowledge and culture. In it people from every race and every creed, from Spain to China, travelled, traded and built up sciences, all living under the protection of Islamic law. Public libraries, observatories and universities were born in Islamic Civilisation all emerging from the mosque as the centre of learning.

During the golden age of islamic civilisation the islamic world led in practically every area of knowledge and culture. In it people from every race and every creed, from Spain to China, travelled, traded and built up sciences, all living under the protection of Islamic law. Public libraries, observatories and universities were born in Islamic Civilisation all emerging from the mosque as the centre of learning.

The Contrast with the situation today is dramatic and begs for explanation. This has been the subject of much debate and propaganda which has unfortunately left a legacy of distortions and misunderstandings.

In particular, the rise and achievements of Islamic Civilisation are often separated from their Islamic inspiration while its decline is blamed in various ways on the religion [less]

Hidden Debts of Islamic Civilisation, The

S.E. Al-Djazairi

"If there is much misunderstanding in the West about the nature of Islam, there is also much ignorance about the debt our own culture and civilisation owe to the Islamic world. It is a failure, which stems, I think, from the straight-jacket of history, which we have inherited. The medieval Islamic world, from central Asia to the shores of the Atlantic, was a world where scholars and men of learning flourished. But because we have tended to see Islam as the enemy of the West, as an alien culture [...]

"If there is much misunderstanding in the West about the nature of Islam, there is also much ignorance about the debt our own culture and civilisation owe to the Islamic world. It is a failure, which stems, I think, from the straight-jacket of history, which we have inherited. The medieval Islamic world, from central Asia to the shores of the Atlantic, was a world where scholars and men of learning flourished. But because we have tended to see Islam as the enemy of the West, as an alien culture, society, and system of belief, we have tended to ignore or erase its great relevance to our own history." Prince Charles, Oxford University Speech 1993 The Hidden Debt to Islamic Civilisation is a thorough study of that relevance and how it has been hidden from Western consciousness. Al-Djazairi puts his many years of expert work as an historian into this book. From street lighting to soap, from trigonometry to algebra, from windmills to universities, from nutrition to surgery of the eye, from the paper industry to mass literacy, from the banker's cheque to religious freedom, Western civilisation owes its emergence to its encounter with the Islamic world. Yet few people are aware of this debt. Political efforts at overpowering the Muslim world have had no small part to play in this concealment, just as they had no small part to play in the decline of Islamic Civilisation. Recognising and understanding this debt is a vital part of bringing about a more just world where Islam can again inspire great achievements to benefit humanity. [less]

History stands as the most effective and valuable source of putting nation on the course of progress and prosperity and saving them from the path of disgrace and degradation.

At a time, when there is tough competition among the nations of the world to excel one another, the Muslim, despite having the most glorious history, appear to be detached and careless as regards their history.

This book presents the true Islamic events and their actual causes before the English readers because the other books in the English language found on the Islamic history have been written by such authors and compilers who did no justice in presenting the true picture of Islamic Era but their prejudice prevented them from doing so.
