Islam on Love and Non-Violence 2015 (Paperback): Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri Islam on Love and Non-Violence 2015 (Paperback)
Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri
R320 Discovery Miles 3 200 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The topic of love and non-violence in Islam, in an environment imbued with intolerance, extremism and terrorism, is very significant. This book portrays how loving humanity and eliminating violence are key in all the Islamic teachings and are evident in the conduct of Allah's exalted Messenger.The Holy Quran states that Almighty Allah has raised the Prophet as an epitome of mercy for the entire universe. Despite atrocious afflictions caused by the polytheists of Mecca, the Prophet remained peaceful and always sought dialogue as a means of resolution.Islam is a religion that preaches peace, security, love and regard. According to Islamic teachings, a Muslim is one from whose tongue and hand all people, whether Muslim or Non-Muslim, are safe. The dignity, inviolability and protection of human life is basic to Islamic law. Killing a human unjustly is unlawful and also an act of disbelief in certain cases. Islam states that the sanctity of life is superior to the sanctity of the Ka'ba hence shedding blood unjustly has been condemned in the harshest possible terms.Under Islamic law even in the state of war non-combatants cannot be killed during battle.The only enemies who are allowed to be killed are those actively take part in combat. Other restrictions also include killing animals, damaging crops, destroying buildings, properties and places of worship. Such strict rulings are in place even during times of war therefore it is clear that all acts of terrorism and extremism are in direct contravention of the teachings of the Quran and hadith.Islam eliminated hatred through love, terrorism through peace and ignorance through knowledge. This book portrays how love, peace and knowledge form the very essence of Islam.

This Is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared - The Days of Awe as a Journey of Transformation (Paperback): Norman Fischer This Is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared - The Days of Awe as a Journey of Transformation (Paperback)
Norman Fischer; Alan Lew 1
R375 R319 Discovery Miles 3 190 Save R56 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

There are times in life when we are caught utterly unprepared: a death in the family, the end of a relationship, a health crisis. These are the times when the solid ground we thought we stood on disappears beneath our feet, leaving us reeling and heartbroken, as we stumble back to our faith. The Days of Awe encompass the weeks preceding Rosh Hashanah up to Yom Kippur, a period in which Jews take part in a series of rituals and prayers that reenact the journey of the soul through the world from birth to death. This is a period of contemplation and repentance, comparable to Lent and Ramadan. Yet, for Rabbi Alan Lew, the real purpose of this annual passage is for us to experience brokenheartedness and open our heart to God. In This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared, Lew has marked out a journey of seven distinct stages, one that draws on these rituals to awaken our soul and wholly transform us. Weaving together Torah readings, Buddhist parables, Jewish fables and stories from his own life, Lew lays bare the meanings of this ancient Jewish passage. He reveals the path from terror to acceptance, confusion to clarity, doubt to belief, and from complacency to awe. In the tradition of When Bad Things Happen to Good People, This Is Real And You Are Completely Unprepared enables believers of all faiths to reconnect to their faith with a passion and intimacy that will resonate throughout the year.

The Power of Friendship (Paperback): Paul Tokunaga The Power of Friendship (Paperback)
Paul Tokunaga
R46 Discovery Miles 460 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Paul Tokunaga writes in The Power of Friendship, "God came into my life through a person, a warm and compassionate friend who gently wore down a hard, insecure, insensitive shell until I was ready to understand God's love for me . . . then loved me and loved me and has never stopped loving me."As Tokunaga describes his decades-long friendship with Gary Fischer, he shows that their relationship was more than an occasion for evangelism. Rather, it has been since their meeting in 1969 a growing, encouraging and challenging relationship that has changed both men in significant ways. In this IVP Booklet, Tokunaga calls you, too, to become a "Gary"--a person used by God to touch and transform the life of another, a friend.

Islam in Israel - Muslim Communities in Non-Muslim States (Paperback): Muhammad Al Atawneh, Nohad Ali Islam in Israel - Muslim Communities in Non-Muslim States (Paperback)
Muhammad Al Atawneh, Nohad Ali
R617 Discovery Miles 6 170 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Islam is the religion of the majority of Arab citizens in Israel and since the late 1970s has become an important factor in their political and socio-cultural identity. This leads to an increasing number of Muslims in Israel who define their identity first and foremost in relation to their religious affiliation. By examining this evolving religious identity during the past four decades and its impact on the religious and socio-cultural aspects of Muslim life in Israel, Muhammad Al-Atawneh and Nohad Ali explore the local nature of Islam. They find that Muslims in Israel seem to rely heavily on the prominent Islamic authorities in the region, perhaps more so than minority Muslims elsewhere. This stems, inter alia, from the fact that Muslims in Israel are the only minority that lives in a land they consider to be holy and see themselves as a natural.

Sexuality in Islam (Hardcover): Abdelwahab Bouhdiba Sexuality in Islam (Hardcover)
Abdelwahab Bouhdiba
R4,339 Discovery Miles 43 390 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book was originally published in 1985. Beginning with the Qur'an, Abdelwahab Bouhdiba confronts the question of male supremacy in Islam, and the strict separation of the masculine and the feminine. He gives an account of purification practices, of Islamic attitudes towards homosexuality, concubinage, legal marriage and of the sexual taboos laid down by the Qur'an. He assesses present-day sexual practice, including eroticism, misogyny and mysticism and concludes that the sexual alienation - and even oppression - of modern Muslim women is the result not of the Islamic vision of sexuality, but of social and economic pressures.

Colour, Light and Wonder in Islamic Art (Hardcover): Idries Trevathan Colour, Light and Wonder in Islamic Art (Hardcover)
Idries Trevathan
R899 Discovery Miles 8 990 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The experience of colour in Islamic visual culture has historically been overlooked. In this new approach, Idries Trevathan examines the language of colour in Islamic art and architecture in dialogue with its aesthetic contexts, offering insights into the pre-modern Muslim experience of interpreting colour. The seventeenth-century Shah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran, represents one of the finest examples of colour-use on a grand scale. Here, Trevathan examines the philosophical and mystical traditions that formed the mosque's backdrop. He shows how careful combinations of colour and design proportions in Islamic patterns expresses knowledge beyond that experienced in the corporeal world, offering another language with which to know and experience God. Colour thus becomes a spiritual language, calling for a re-consideration of how we read Islamic aesthetics.
