Beginning's End
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

Beginning's End is a contemporary outlook on the Sufi sciences of self-knowledge, intended for Muslims and non-Muslims alike. The author holds that truth has no end and is eternal, and that is why human beings will seek total freedom, of which material freedom is only a small part. The final freedom is a natural, spontaneous submission and being connected to timelessness, yet experiencing time.

"This book was written mainly to highlight the truth that if you wish to nourish the heart and nurture the light within, you need to make structural adjustments to your way of life as well as the all-consuming material drive. The book is a challenge to our modern lifestyle that is out of balance.

Now it is being reprinted as the gap widens between the sustainable inner happiness and the ever-lasting outer frenzy." -- from the Preface to the Reprinted Edition.

Decree and Destiny
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

Free will and predestination have been the frequent topic of philosophical debate from the early civilizations right through to the present day. This book describes how human life is based on the freedom of no choice.

Decree and Destiny is a lucid exposition of the extensive body of Islamic thought on the issue of free will and determinism. Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri presents the deepest aspects of the debate through the actual words of the Qur`an, the Prophet Muhammad and the Shi’ite Imams. Many of the sayings quoted have not been examined before in this context. Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri’s work offers to the reader the remarkable richness of Islamic thought on this issue, and points out popular misconceptions, such as the belief that Islam is a fatalistic religion. Ultimately, Decree and Destiny will serve as a much-needed bridge between Islamic culture and philosophy and the West.

Songs of Iman on the Roads of Pakistan
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

Songs of Iman on the Roads of Pakistan is a series of talks given by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri during a tour of the country. Shaykh Fadhlalla speaks out on the central theme of the conflict between the pursuit of Western technologic and materialistic goals and a spiritual way of life promising fulfillment by seeking knowledge of God and living the Way of Submission, Islam. This divergence between iman and Kufr taking place in Pakistan is only a reflection of a condition occurring everywhere else in the Muslim world, and indeed in the rest of the world today. This volume of collected talks is relevant to anyone who is seeking a way out of the chaos of a collapsing, amoral Kufr society, and a clear guidance and knowledge of an alternative way of living– a code of conduct that will enable him to travel with humility and purpose toward his Creator and the fulfillment of his noble destiny.

The Thoughtful Guide to Islam

Islam is the fastest growing religion in North America, and the world, with well over a billion followers. Since September 11, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the ongoing war against terror, the world has seemed to be heading inexorably towards greater confrontation between Muslim and non-Muslim cultures. At a time when communities increasingly tend to view each other with suspicion, this book cuts through the morass of misunderstanding and misinformation to give a true and timely overview of the universality and light of the prophetic message of Islam. It explains its history and development, the distinction between the original message and the traditions that have grown up around it, the life of Islam today, its potential for bringing unity, and speculate son its future. Selections from key Islamic writings make this a classic introduction to the Islamic tradition for today.
