1. The Prophet’s Biography

The Prophet’s Biography, one of our platform’s most trending and most-read books, is a testament to our commitment to providing authentic and reliable content. This two-volume biography of our beloved Prophet PBUH is the result of meticulous research, ensuring that everything you read has authentic sources from the Ahadiths.

You’ll gain a deep understanding of the daily life of our Holy Prophet (PBUH) and all the significant events that shaped it. This book is by the Darussalam Research Center, and every piece of information it contains is backed by authentic sources.

2. Stories of the Prophets

Stories of the Prophets, Peace be upon Them, is one of the most famous books in Islamic history. It was written by Abu al-Fida Isma’il ibn Umar ibn Kathir al-Dimashqi, known simply as Ibn Kathir. He is one of the most famous Islamic historians and scholars and was one of the earliest compilers of Islamic history.

Our second recommendation, ‘Stories of the Prophets, ‘is a testament to Islam’s rich history. This book covers the stories of almost all the prophets mentioned in the Quran or narrated by the Holy Prophet (PBUH). This grand collection of the prophets’ stories is not just a book; it’s a treasure trove of essential lessons. As Muslims, it’s our duty and privilege to learn as much as we can about our beloved and respected prophets.

3. The Magnificence of the Quran

We all try to read the Holy Quran regularly, but most of us don’t realize its importance and often neglect the etiquette it deserves. We should not only immensely respect it but also learn how to read it. The Magnificence of the Qur’an by Mahmood Bin Ahmad Bin Saaleh Ad-Dausaree highlights the importance of our Holy book.

This book explores the miracles and virtues of the Holy Quran and helps us understand why we should read it and implement its teachings in our daily lives. It discusses a wide range of topics to help readers gain guidance in various aspects of life.

4. Understanding Ramadan

The Holy month of Ramadan is indeed a month of blessings, patience, forgiveness, and many other amazing things, and Allah SWT and our Holy Prophet PBUH have emphasized this month a lot. Every Muslim tries to fast this month, but this month is way more than just fasting, and most of us don’t know the importance of this great month.

Understanding Ramadan by Muhammed Hassan Khan provides a thorough understanding of various ibadah related to Ramadan, including Tarawih, Lailat Al-Qadr, Itikaf, Eid prayers, and Sadaqat Al-Fitr, all based on authentic Ahadith books. So, if you want to make the most of Ramadan, do give it a read!

5. The History of Islam

Islam has come into our lives after countless sacrifices and hardships faced by Sahabas, Tabayeen, Taba Tabayeen, and scholars, and the sad part is that Muslims have such a beautiful history, but they seem to be so indifferent to it.

The History of Islam by Akbar Shah Najeerabadi is a three-volume comprehensive guide to all the significant events in the history of Islam that have helped our religion flourish.

This book is free from bias and accurately describes the events as mentioned by the historians without any fabrications or prejudice. You can find all three volumes of The History of Islam by Akbar Shah Najeerabad on the True ilm application in the Ebooks section.

6. Kindness To Parents

Islam is not just a religion but a complete way of life, and it doesn’t end with our spiritual life, but it also profoundly teaches us different aspects of our personal lives and relationships. Islam has defined certain ways and boundaries in which to interact with human beings, including our relatives. However, it emphasizes the relationship of a child with his/her parents the most.

Kindness To Parents by Abdul Malik Al Qasim is an excellent book on this subject. It contains all the Ahadith and Quranic verses related to our relationship with our parents in one place, along with their explanations.

7. Fiqh According to the Quran and Sunnah

We, as Muslims, are doing a lot of things in our daily lives in ignorance that are not correct or aligned with the teachings of Islam. It should be our duty to learn more about the teachings of Islam so that we can live our lives according to the way Allah SWT and Allah’s Messenger PBUH have intended.

Fiqh, According to the Quran and Sunnah by Muhammad Subhi bin Hassan Khallaaq, is a two-volume guide to understanding Islamic law based on the Quran and Sunnah. We should try to live our lives according to Islamic teachings, and this book is a must-read for anyone who aims to do so.
