At the heart of traditional Islamic scholarship lies the noble pursuit of rendering knowledge both accessible and lucid to the broader populace. In the confluence of this pursuit and modern artistry stands our next release, The Periodic Table of Qur’ān Chapters, a creation by Shaykh Abu Hasan Ridawi.
Meticulously crafted and radiating elegance, it stands as a visual compass, navigating the vast expanse and elaborate intricacies of the Qur’ān and its chapters. Just as a map charts the known world, this table delineates both the overarching framework and the delicate configurations of the chapters within the divine text as understood and taught by our salaf.
Drawing from the profound scholarship of luminaries such as Imām Álamuddīn Sakhāwī, Shaykh Abu Hasan’s tableau presents the venerable categorizations of the Qur’ān's chapters. A symphony of four...

This one-of-a-kind visual created by Mawlana Abu Hasan, ingeniously adapts the familiar structure of the Periodic Table of Elements to categorise and convey information regarding books of Hadith.
This brilliant guide provides the names of various Hadith books, their classification (based on attributes like authenticity, genre, and juridical relevance) and additional author information, all amazingly concentrated into one table.
While a conventional periodic table organizes elements by physical properties, this Hadith table brings a rich array of works, including some obscure ones, into an easily navigable format. Books and collections of hadith...

The Science of Hadith is an integral component of the Islamic scholarly tradition - one that Muslims should be immensely proud of. It is emblematic of the intellectual richness that Islam offers to the world.
Hadith Studies is a meticulous discipline that strives to critically authenticate accounts and reports, tracing them to their sources, as accurately as possible - whether to the Prophet Muhammad (صل الله عليه وسلم) or any other prominent religious figure - with the utmost diligence, precision, and neutrality. It’s rigor is unparalleled in the annals of historical reporting.
Despite its significance, the science of hadith remains largely unknown among the Muslim laity. Even those who study it, often learn it...
the infographic was made based on the 30 vol.edition. i did not expect a word to be missing in the book. but as you have pointed out, it is there in the old edition (published in alahazrat's own lifetime).
if i get time to correct, i will fix it in sha'Allah.
wa billahi't tawfiq.
https://www.ridawi.org/alahazrat-books-download/#rasail is a great page. I use it regularly to access the rasayil.
our reviewers were also of this opinion; abu nibras wanted it at least for one more point; but i had to meet a deadline so i let it be for the time being. we will do that in sha'Allah in v2.0
wa billahi't tawfiq.
If the torrent of bad news emanating from the Muslim world for the past few years, especially the challenges to Sunni Islam sprouting almost on a daily basis, has thrown you in the blues, and you, like me, are wondering, "what the heck is going on??" - here's a small personal prescription: read Alahazrat.
Tired of the status quo, the monotony? Wish to inflame your soul? Wish to set fire to the cobwebs pulling you down?
Go ahead. Read Alahazrat.
If you wish to regale in the death of insecurity and uncertainty - by a thousand cuts - and glide in the skies of yaqeen and tawakkul, transport yourself right into the eye of a powerful tornado of Imaan, don't lose another moment - read Alahazrat.
Then let death come, we can waltz our way to heaven.
I believe the contents page needs update- page numbers are out of sync from what I can see (just FYI for future editions)
@Aqdas could u move my post below to the Irfan Shah thread as I posted it here by mistake
reflections on celebrations [abu Hasan]
new-year days, birthdays and anniversaries...milestones on a path that leads to a deep and rotting pit or a beautiful garden.
i can see the joy
and hastening fervent
of those, who go
a warrior, valiant -
returning from the front
a diligent student,
and a lover ardent
for a welcome fragrant
a thriving merchant
with his fortune present
but does it warrant
to rejoice frequent,
for those errant -
whose failure patent?
a student, truant,
and a fleeing tyrant
or a lover peccant?
yet, we celebrate our birthdays and have parties on new year's day. for what? for wasting another year? with the knowledge that we inch towards our graves which shall be a garden of comfort for those who strive, and a pit of darkness for those who spend their lives in heedlessness, ghaflah. truly, we have...
Can someone please post the duration (number of years) Alahazrat stayed in Makkah and Madinah.
