An important work by Sheikh Muhammad Qutb about the true meaning of being a Muslim, questioning whether the life we are living today as a nation of Muslims is truly the Islamic life taught by the Qur’an and Sunnah.
We are living now-a-days in the age of science. The intelligent human beings want to know where did they come from? Where did the universe come from? Will the universe come to an end, if so, how? Is the universe static or dynamic, if dynamic, is it expanding or contracting? What is time? When was it started? Will it come to an end? What are Black Holes? What are the forces of Nature? What is the smallest piece of matter? What is the status of man in the universe? Are there ultimate limits for human beings to know about something?
The majority of people especially in the third world are unable to answer these questions. When they are asked such questions, most of them answer with a shrug or with a vague and ambiguous knowledge. On the basis of Holy Qur’an as well as scientific knowledge, I have tried my level best to answer these questions in this book “Astrophysics and the Holy Quran”.
It is surprising that Islam is gaining momentum in the West amidst negative media coverage. The surge of new converts on hostile ground proves that Islam is a true religion that needs reckoning by the West. On 7th October 2002, it was reported in St. Petersburg Times that “Every year, about 20 000 people in the United States convert to Islam, according to a study conducted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.”
On 22nd February 2004, Nicholas Hellen and Christopher Morgan reported in The Sunday Times that “More than 14 000 white Britons have converted to Islam after becoming disillusioned with western values, according to the first authoritative study of the phenomenon. Some of Britain’s top landowners, celebrities and the offspring of senior Establishment figures have embraced the strict tenets of the Muslim faith.”
The intention of writing this book is not to create enmity or dissension, but to convey the truth about Islam. We pray to Allah that it will benefit everybody, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

We had the honor of our eyes being gifted with seeing his eminence Imam Abdul Aziz Bin Baz may Allah bestow upon him immense mercy and of sitting with him when he delivered verdicts regarding rulings of the Shariah on many medical issues which have been increasingly asked about by patients and people working in the medical field. We focused ourselves, with success granted by Allah, on the authenticity of medical information to the best of our ability. We have applied our best efforts in its presentation while simplifying it as much as possible. This is so that it is easily understood by those who are not specialists in medical fields.
The author presents a penetrating diagnosis of the illnesses of humanity today, together with a fascinating overview of the Islamic metaphysics, unearthing its spiritual and moral values and its timeless relevance and applicability. Man and universe is a compelling and urgently needed piece of writing about what we human beings are, where we stand, and what we can do about it.
Might Over Right provides a critical account of one of the most remarkable stories in the twentieth century’s history of international relations – the history of how in the relatively short time of 30 years, Zionist leasers managed, with the help of Western supportes but mainly the British, to wrestle a country away from its inhabitants, and in the process to profoundly affect the curse of international relations and fundamentally transform the history of the Middle East.
Extensively documented, relying mostly on zionist, British, and Israeli sources, and sweeping in scope, the book makes a crucial contribution to the growing effort to challenge the simplistic and reductive accounts in media and scholarship in the West – one of the principal causes of the perpetuation of the conflict.
Might Over Right goes beyond the Israeli new historian’s accounts that focus in specific aspects of the Zionist- Palestinian confrontation. It also goes beyond the establishment of the state of Israel in 1984 to critically analyze the latest dimensions of the Arab-Israeli conflict, and of the continued Israeli-palestinian confrontation.
Muslim civilisation has experienced an overall decline during the last five centuries after having witnessed a long period of prosperity and comprehensive development. This raises a number of questions such as what factors enabled Muslims to become successful during the earlier centuries of Islam and what led them to their present weak position. Is it Islam which is responsible for this decline or are other factors which come into play
In this penetrating study has tried answer these questions thoroughly and has then discussed a reform programme that could help reverse the cycle of decline.
