  • Sunna Notes Trilogy : Gibril Fouad Haddad
  • ”The most neglected name of the Religion of Islam today is probably al-Hanīfiyyat al-Samha - 'The Natural, Easy Religion', (described by) the Last Prophet ﷺ 'as the most beloved Religion of all to Allah (aḥabbu al-dīni ilā Allah.)'”
    2 excerpts here:
    - Islam the Natural, Easy Religion

  • The Prophet's Night Journey and Heavenly Ascent: Gibril Fouad Haddad
  • This is the English translation by Gibril Fouad Haddad of al-Anwār al-Bahiyya min Isrā’ wa-Mi’rāj Khayr al-Bariyya, “The Resplendent Lights of the Night-Journey and Ascension of the Best of Creation [the Prophet Muhammad],”
    Shaykh Muhammad b. Alawi said he had written it "as a separate monograph so as to allow its access to the people at large."

  • The Four Imams And Their Schools: Gibril Fouad Haddad
  • A historical overview of the methodology of the four founders of the schools of Sunni jurisprudence (Abu Hanifa, Shafiʿi, Malik, Ahmad ibn Hanbal) including the emphasis they placed on understanding and practice of proof-texts over mere memorization and vested tradition; their embodiment of the Qur'an, Prophetic manners, simple living and remembrance of the One God that became known as Sufism; their distaste for theologizing beyond the necessity of explaining the creed; their affirmation of tolerance, generosity of spirit, and acceptance of divergent opinion which they understood as a mercy; and finally their division of innovation (bidʿa ) as either good or bad.

    The Four Imams and Their Schools
    By Gibril Fouad Haddad


    Foreward by Sayyid Yusuf Hashim al-Rifa'i Paperback 551 Pages,
    Muslim Academic Trust, London; - at [kitaabun.com]
    The edition is in English with some Arabic.

    "The Great Edifice of Islamic Law is held up by four towering figures of the early middle ages: Abu Hanifa, Malik, al-Shafi'i, and Ibn Hanbal. Because of their immense dedication and intellectual acuity, these men enjoy recognition to this day as Islam's most influential scholars." [ kitaabun.com]

    The Refutation of He Who Attributes Direction to Allah


    This short theological tract, Fi Nafi al-Jiha, or On Denying Direction to God, by the Ashari theologian and celebrated Shafi'i jurist, Qadi Ibn Jahbal (d. 733/1333), is a clinical rebuttal of the controversial fatwa, the Aqida Hamawiyya, penned by his legendary contemporary, Ibn Taymiyya (d. 728/1328). It is considered, rightly, a classic manifesto of anti-literalism, which will be an indispensable reference for advanced students of Islamic theology, other professional theologians, and modern academics needing primary source materials in English or a source book on the controversies surrounding Ibn Taymiyya's theology.
