Top 10 Best Books to Read in Islam - August 2021

BONUS: This eBook includes downloadable videos and a Q&A with Nabeel Qureshi that are not found in the print edition. Having shared his journey of faith in the  New York Times  bestselling  Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus , Nabeel Qureshi now examines Islam and Christianity in detail, exploring areas of crucial conflict and unpacking the relevant evidence. In this anticipated follow-up book, Nabeel reveals what he discovered in the decade following his conversion, providing a thorough and careful comparison of the evidence for Islam and Christianity--evidence that wrenched his heart and transformed his life. In  Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus , Nabeel Qureshi recounted his dramatic journey, describing his departure from Islam and his decision to follow Christ. In the years that followed, he realized that the world’s two largest religions are far more different than they initially appeared. No God but One: Allah or Jesus?  addresses the most important questions at the interface of Islam and Christianity: How do the two religions differ? Are the differences significant? Can we be confident that either Christianity or Islam is true? And most important, is it worth sacrificing everything for the truth? Nabeel shares stories from his life and ministry, casts new light on current events, and explores pivotal incidents in the histories of both religions, providing a resource that is gripping and thought-provoking, respectful and challenging. Both Islam and Christianity teach that there is  No God but One , but who deserves to be worshiped,  Allah  or  Jesus ?

2. The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Islam - August 2021

The Strange Death of Europe is a highly personal account of a continent and culture caught in the act of suicide. Declining birth rates, mass immigration, and cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their own comprehensive alteration as a society and an eventual end. This is not just an analysis of demographic and political realities; it is also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode. It includes accounts based on travels across the entire continent, from the places where migrants land to the places they end up, from the people who pretend they want them to the places which cannot accept them. Murray takes a step back at each stage and looks at the bigger and deeper issues which lie behind a continent's possible demise, from an atmosphere of mass terror attacks to the steady erosion of our freedoms. The audiobook addresses the disappointing failure of multiculturalism, Angela Merkel's U-turn on migration, the lack of repatriation, and the Western fixation on guilt. Murray travels to Berlin, Paris, Scandinavia, Lampedusa, and Greece to uncover the malaise at the very heart of the European culture and to hear the stories of those who have arrived in Europe from far away. This sharp and incisive audiobook ends up with two visions for a new Europe - one hopeful, one pessimistic - which paint a picture of Europe in crisis and offer a choice as to what, if anything, we can do next. But perhaps Spengler was right: 'civilizations, like humans, are born, briefly flourish, decay, and die'.

3. The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Islam - August 2021

ONE OF TIME ’S TEN MOST IMPORTANT NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY In the searing pages of this classic autobiography, originally published in 1964, Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, firebrand, and anti-integrationist, tells the extraordinary story of his life and the growth of the Black Muslim movement. His fascinating perspective on the lies and limitations of the American Dream, and the inherent racism in a society that denies its nonwhite citizens the opportunity to dream, gives extraordinary insight into the most urgent issues of our own time. The Autobiography of Malcolm X stands as the definitive statement of a movement and a man whose work was never completed but whose message is timeless. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand America. Praise for The Autobiography of Malcolm X “Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.” — The New York Times “This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.” —I.

4. The Holy Qur'an

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Islam - August 2021

The Holy Qur'an (also known as The Koran) is the sacred book of Islam. It is the word of God whose truth was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad through the angel Gabriel over a period of 23 years. As it was revealed, so it was committed to memory by his companions, though written copies were also made by literate believers during the lifetime of the Prophet. The first full compilation was by Abu Bakar, the first Caliph, and it was then recompiled in the original dialect by the third Caliph Uthman, after the best reciters had fallen in battle. Muslims believe that the truths of The Holy Qur'an are fully and authentically revealed only in the original classical Arabic. However, as the influence of Islam grows and spreads to the modern world, it is recognised that translation is an important element in introducing and explaining Islam to a wider audience. This translation, by Abdullah Yusuf Ali, is considered to be the most faithful rendering available in English.

7. Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Islam - August 2021

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 2015 Christian Book Award winner • Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity in this expanded edition with new bonus content and reflections. "My friend Nabeel Qureshi was courageous enough to chase down the truth with intellectual integrity, no matter the personal cost," --Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ. Providing an intimate view into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi struggled with an inner turmoil that will challenge Christians, Muslims, and all those who are interested in two of the world's greatest religions and the quest for truth. Qureshi--with great courage and intimacy--wrote this book with three major purposes in mind: To tear down walls between two of the world's major religions by giving non-Muslim readers an insider's perspective into a Muslim's heart and mind. To equip the reader with facts and knowledge, showing the strength of the case for the gospel contrasted with the case for Islam. To portray the immense inner struggle of Muslims grappling with the gospel, including all the sacrifices and doubts that rise up along the way. Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is more than the memoir of a man's pursuit of answers to the most important issues of life and faith. Ultimately, it's the story about the transformative grace and mercy of the one true God. This edition has been expanded to include: A revised foreword and introduction A new afterword by apologist Mark Mittelberg and a reflection by Nabeel's wife A substantially extended epilogue that shares how Nabeel told his friend David of his decision to follow Christ, how his parents found out, and more Expert contributions from scholars and ministry leaders on each section of the book, contributions previously included only in the ebook edition An appendix with a topical table of contents (for teaching from Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus ) An appendix tackling the objection that Ahmadi Muslims--the Islamic movement that Qureshi was raised in--are not true Muslims And a sneak peek prologue from Nabeel's book, No God but One: Allah or Jesus?

10. The Sacred Path to Islam: A Guide to Seeking Allah (God) & Building a Relationship (Understanding Islam | Learn Islam | Basic Beliefs of Islam | Islam Beliefs and Practices)

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Islam - August 2021

Do you yearn to build a closer and more meaningful relationship with your Creator? Do you seek to know the true Message and Wisdom of Islam? The work I present here for your consumption is more than a book; a collection of words meant to deliver glad tidings, to educate, and to perhaps warn. It is a work driven by what I intend to be a sound and powerful Message. This message invites readers to think freely and broaden their minds; to contemplate and seek their own truth. This passage advises people, never to blindly follow any religion without first reflecting upon the faith in question and reasoning its true meaning. Beyond all manner of faith and feeling, one must use their intellect to discover the truth behind all faiths. This passage is intended to draw and empower the sincere seeker of truth; the one that questions, reflects, and ponders his or her life’s purpose and questions his/her future and direction. Islam, for example, is one faith that is misunderstood and misrepresented by many. Before one forms an opinion of Islam, one should question the thoroughness and truthfulness of his or her existing knowledge of this controversial religion. ★ The Sacred Path to Islam ★ Book seeks to connect people to the best Book that ever existed, the Holy Quran. A Divine Book designed to Guide humanity and lead them to a better life in this world and the hereafter. The Holy Quran is a unique Book that transforms the way one thinks, feels, and lives. Islam and the Holy Koran change people from within and makes them better people. The goal is to help people find the Wisdom, Inspiration, and Beauty in Islam and The Holy Koran. Many people are not adequately educated about Allah (God)’s words, Wisdom, Advice, and develop a feeling and assumption that God is a harsh, stern, cruel, demanding God who commands people to respect Him, worship Him, and obey Him fully, and is not loving and kind to His creation. Nothing could be further from the truth. God is All-Loving; All-Merciful. The lifestyle and religion of Islam are far more than just a set of rules and regulations. This book aims to help people realize that Islam is full of wisdom, love, and mercy to all--- and that it is the true religion of God. The ultimate purpose of this message is to facilitate a fresh new dimension of thinking that will enable one to realize the ultimate importance of his or her existence in this universe; to help one understand his/her divine relationship with his/her creator. The faith of Islam is beneficial only to people that are sincere in seeking guidance, misguiding those who are not sincere and honest in their spiritual quests; who reject divine guidance and spiritual truth. Topics of this Islamic Book Include: Introduction to the Religion of Islam Who is Allah (God) What is the Holy Quran (Coran) Who are God’s Messengers & Prophets Who Were the Past Nations Who is Prophet Muhammad, PBUH Muslims & Non-Muslims What is the Purpose of Life What is Hadith & Sunnah What are the Articles of Faith in Islam Oneness of God (Monotheism) Angels God’s Scriptures Belief in The Messengers & Prophets of God Last Day, Resurrection, & Judgement Day What are the Five Pillars of Islam? What is the Declaration/ Testimony of Faith in Islam Ritualized Prayers in Islam (Salah/ Namaz) Zakat/ Sadaqah Fasting in the Holy Month of Ramadan Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca) Shirk in Islam (Polytheism) Jihad in Islam Hellfire According to Islam Jannah (Paradise) in Islam Jesus Christ (Messiah) in Islam Hijab Headscarf Veil & Muslim Women in Islam How to Convert to Islam May your journey to the answer, and the truth be pleasant and successful
