Saviours of Islamic Spirit

This work of historical importance by the eminent Islamic scholar of the 20th Century (late) Sheikh Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi has not become as popular as it should have been. Unfortunate also is the news that the publication of this significant work by the original publisher has been stopped!!

The series written in four volumes under the title Saviours of Islamic Spirit is of immense value to a student of Islamic history and civilization. Muslims, especially those of Asian origin, will find an oceanic depth of information about their past. Continue reading

Education and Three Types of Nafs

‘Nafs’ lexically means, soul, the psyche, ego, self, essence, heart or mind.

A closer look into the Islamic concept of the nafs highlights the intricate and complex composition of the inner self.  They are considered to be a single entity, although its state may change.  There are three types of nafs’ that are mentioned in the Qur’an, Nafs al-Ammara Bissu (the commanding soul) (Ch. 12:53), Nafs al-Lawwama (the Soul that Blames) (Ch. 75:2) and the Nafs al-Mutma`inna (the Soul at Peace) (Ch. 89:27).  Continue reading
