It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single muslim man is in want of a muslim wife.

Assalam alaikom Brothers and Sisters  flowersis

I was thinking of starting a thread about Islamic books you have read that have helped you.

1. increased knowledge
2. inspired you
3. brought you closer to Allah (swt)
4. Taught you more about the Prophets (saw) and Companions (RA)
5. Anything else you might want to share Smiley

I will start with some of the books I have read and I am currently reading, that I recommend.

1. The Alchemy of happiness by Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali
2. Stories of the Prophets by Al-Imam Ibn Kathir
3. Prophet Muhammed by Karen Armstrong
4. Fortress of the Muslim
5. Poor Man's Book of Assistance by Sidi Ahmed Zarruq

Happy Reading Smiley May Allah grant us knowledge, bringing us all closer to Him. Ameen

I believe in Islam like the sun rising, not because I see it but because by it, I see everything else.

Salaam -

One that I started this summer and read in between studying, was the classic seerah - The Sealed Nectar - I have a little bit left, so when I get home next month, insha'allah, will finish it up.

I just ordered al-Ghazali's Duties of Brotherhood, after Br. lucid said it was amazing.

Others I've read:

1.The Karen Armstrong biography that you mention Sr. Christine
2. Martin Lings' Muhammad: From the Earliest Sources

I have to admit, I haven't read a lot of the classic Islamic authors, so that is something I want to work on in whatever time I have left.
