RidawiPress release : The Refulgent Treasure
Herein lies a concise yet astute analysis of Imam Ahmad Rida’s translation of the Quran, Kanz al-Iyman.
The author mentions 20 points which distinguish Kanz al-Iman from all other translations of the Quran. He highlights and walks the reader through the various nuances and subtleties of the translation which may be lost upon the laity but are a source of delight and amazement for those with a keen eye.
The distinguishing aspects of the translation are discussed such as: simplicity of language, translation accuracy, reasons for revelation, consideration of theological implications, upholding prophetic reverence etc. so that laity may also appreciate the translation and benefit from the mastery and genius of the Imam.

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

1) The Birth of a Prophet After Prophet Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is Mustahil Aradi and NOT mustahil Dhati.
What this means is that Allah could have willed otherwise BUT since He has informed us of His Decree that Prophet Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is the Last Prophets we know then that the birth of a Prophet after himصلى الله عليه وسلم WILL NEVER EVER be.
2) The Pardon of Kafir is Mustahil Aradi and NOT mustahil Dhati (according to the Asharis).

Another leading scholar said:
'Superb poster by aH on Deo conflict. This will benefit those who cannot be bothered to read yet talk on this issue.'
I believe this book also needs to published alongside Bad' al-Amali and Who Is AlaHazrat? Excellent work with beneficial appendices clarifying important matters. I'm very skeptical about reading Sirah translations by non-Sunnis. I'll be more than happy to assist financially with this coming into fruition.
this infographic has chronology of 23 years:
but the layout of the turkish infog is nice; not surprising, as he is a professional artist.
It has identical or similar narrations and given the shaykh's erudition it can safely be presumed that they are not mawdu' even if they might not meet the standards of the saHiHayn. A keralite shafi'i scholar confirmed this and also told me that the work is based on a similar one written by hujjat-ul-Islam, Imam al ghazzali (raHimahullah).
alHamdulillah, it has the same sunni aqaid which are also taught by our urdu speaking scholars from north India.
Some parts of the recitation are accompanied by the daff, which, in my opinion, is distracting and should have been avoided. However, this is the best one I...
