Drs. Kaskasâ€™ and Hungerfordâ€™s underlying motivation for the translation and inclusion of the extensive footnotes are not intended to promote a particular school of Islam or Christian apologetics.

Three Mystics Walk into a Tavern: A Once and Future Meeting of Rumi, Meister Eckhart, and Moses de LeÃ³n in Medieval Venice
Manufacturer: Hamilton Books
In Three Mystics Walk into a Tavern, Jalal ad-Din Rumi, Moses de LeÃ³n, and Meister Eckhart--three of the greatest mystics of all time--meet in Venice for an imaginary night-long conversation that will inspire everyday individuals of the twenty-first century to find their own spirituality and realize that everyone can be a mystic. Although the mystics came from different backgrounds and religious traditions (Islam, Judaism, and Christianity), their spiritual paths led them to similar understandings of union with the Divine. The three mystics have a timeless and timely message for people who walk the earth eight centuries after they did, no matter an individual's religious background or even if they have none. It is a message of connecting with the "divine spark" deep within us and within the universe.
The Mother Plane Elijah Muhammad's Analysis Of Ezekiel's Wheel By Elijah Muhammad This book is comprised of sixteen articles written by Elijah Muhammad in the Nation of Islam's official Newspaper, Muhammad Speaks, beginning May, 1973. What had previously been known as Ezekiel's Wheel or his vision of the wheel, was in fact called The Mother Plane, because it is today in fact, not visions, a humanly built planet, or the "mother" of all planes, so teaches Elijah Muhammad. The bible's Ezekiel did not see an actual wheel, but only a vision of one that would be in the future. This book analyzes Ezekiel's vision and brings it to bear with what Elijah Muhammad says that God taught him about it. What's called "UFO's today is in fact the wheel which eludes the scientists of this world. Elijah Muhammad interprets Ezekiel's Wheel in modern terms.

This unique work takes a method of textual analysis commonly used in studies of ancient Western and Eastern manuscripts and applies it to twenty-one early Qur'an manuscripts. Keith Small analyzes a defined portion of text from the Qur'an with two aims in view: to recover the earliest form of text for this portion, and to trace the historical development of this portion to the current form of the text of the Qur'an. Small concludes that though a significantly early edited form of the consonantal text of the Qur'an can be recovered, its original forms of text cannot be obtained. He also documents the further editing that was required to record the Arabic text of the Qur'an in a complete phonetic script, as well as providing an explanation for much of the development of various recitation systems of the Qur'an. This controversial, thought-provoking book provides a rigorous examination into the history of the Qur'an and will be of great interest to Quranic Studies scholars.
The Cambridge Companion to Classical Islamic Theology (Cambridge Companions to Religion)
Manufacturer: Cambridge University Press
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press
This series of critical reflections on the evolution and major themes of pre-modern Muslim theology begins with the revelation of the Koran, and extends to the beginnings of modernity in the eighteenth century. The significance of Islamic theology reflects the immense importance of Islam in the history of monotheism, to which it has brought a unique approach and style, and a range of solutions which are of abiding interest. Devoting especial attention to questions of rationality, scriptural fidelity, and the construction of 'orthodoxy', this volume introduces key Muslim theories of revelation, creation, ethics, scriptural interpretation, law, mysticism, and eschatology. Throughout the treatment is firmly set in the historical, social and political context in which Islam's distinctive understanding of God evolved. Despite its importance, Islamic theology has been neglected in recent scholarship, and this book provides a unique, scholarly but accessible introduction.
'Work for your terrestrial life in proportion to your location in it, and work for your afterlife in proportion to your eternity in it.' This is part of the advice that the great theologian and mystic Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111 AD) put down in his Letter to a Disciple. An old disciple of al-Ghazali had studied the Islamic sciences, including the many works of his master, for most of his life. Faced with the proximity of death, he turns again to his master this time asking for a summary of all his teachings. Letter to a Disciple is al-Ghazali's response. The emphasis in this short treatise is on religious and spiritual action and on putting into practice the knowledge that one has acquired. Letter to a Disciple can be considered as the last testament of he who is regarded as Hujjat al-Islam, the 'Proof of Islam'. This new translation is presented here as a bilingual, English-Arabic, edition.
