    Companions of the Prophet, AW Hamid, Book 2


    From the rich, Islamic heritage, true and inspiring stories highlighting aspects of the lives of 60 Companions including outstanding women.

    This is one of two books that provides a lively introduction to early Muslim history and inspiring models for Muslim values, attitudes and behaviour.

    Here the trials and triumphs of the early Muslims as individual men and women are well-portrayed.

    Their various paths to Islam – sometimes direct, sometimes long and tortuous, their devotion to the noble Prophet (s), their hope in God and in the life to come, their endeavours in peace and in times of hardship and struggle – all serve to cast them in a heroic mould.

    The Sahabah or Companions of the Prophet (s) helped to lay the foundations of a new world order and it is fitting that they should be more widely known.

    This is the second of two books based on the original Arabic sources and written in a style that is lively and often gripping.

    These two books are based on original Arabic sources and contemporary writings on early Muslim history.

    Finding Peace In The Holy Land: A British Muslim Memoir, Lauren Booth


    Finding Peace in the Holy Land is a spiritual adventure story which begins in the quiet London suburb of Hampstead in the 1970s. Lauren’s father is a famous actor and political militant. Penniless and unable to pay the rent, he tells her that changing the world is the reason for living.

    After her early faith is shattered by a mysterious fire, Lauren paddles the shallows of celebrity life, where her political opinions pit her against the views of her brother-in-law, who just happens to be Prime Minister Tony Blair. This rare and relevant memoir is told with brisk honesty and sharp humour. It is a dramatic life story sweeping from the suburbs of North London to the olive groves of the Holy Land, from handball with Hamas to breaking a deadly siege by land and by sea.

    It tracks the singular journey of a one-time party girl and part-time Christian to the quiet, teetotal life of a devout believer in the teachings of the Arabian Prophet.


    Finding Peace in the Holy Land is a memoir by Lauren Booth, who is probably best well-known as Tony Blair’s sister-in-law. Beginning with her hilarious upbringing, and moving through her life as an actress, a political activist, and then a journalist and humanitarian, it is ultimately the story of how she came to Islam. – Muslimreads.com

    “[A] work of great synthesis. . . . [It] argues that the ‘makers of Western Islam’ have not only enriched Islam but also humanity in general. This book is an important and timely contribution.”—Dr. Enes Karic, Professor at the Faculty of Islamic Studies, University of Sarajevo, and former Minister of Education, Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina

This extraordinary book features biographies on the enslaved African Prince Ayuba Sulaiman Diallo, who was put to work in the tobacco fields of Maryland; Alexander Russell Webb, the voice of Muslims in Victorian America; and W.D. Muhammad, Elijah Muhammad’s son, who converted the Nation of Islam’s followers to an authentic version of Islam.

    Muhammad Mojlum Khan was born in 1973 in Habigong, Bangladesh, and was brought up and educated in England. He is a literary critic, prolific writer, and a researcher in Islamic thought and history. He has published over 100 essays and articles on Islam, comparative religion, contemporary thought, and current affairs, and has been a regular contributor to The Muslim News.

With numerous extracts from Al-Ghazali’s own autobiography carefully rendered into contemporary English, this book makes the man many consider to be one of the most important Muslims in history accessible to all.
