This newly translated anthology of Rumi’s poetry, with accompanying commentaries, aims to uncover the true meaning held within his cherished verse. The version of Rumi that has become known as 'the best-selling poet in North America’ is not a true one. The time has come to reveal more of Rumi. To challenge the seriously inaccurate portrayal of a new age guru who seemingly embraced, far ahead of his time, some of the heresies and vices most disliked in traditional Islam. This brilliant work, through careful selections from his work and accompanying commentaries, will bring readers closer to his poetry’s true, traditional meaning and the man himself, and his position as a great Islamic scholar, teacher and saint. 'Everyone has, in their view, become my close friend but they have not sought out the secrets within me.’ -- Rumi About the Author Dr. Muhammad Isa Waley is Lead Curator for Persian and Turkish Collections at the British Library, London. His main research specialisations are the palaeography, codicology, illumination and cataloguing of Islamic manuscripts; and the classical verse and prose literature of Islamic spirituality. The subject of his PhD was Jalal al-Din Rumi’s work and he is an editor for the Mawlana Rumi Review, an annual journal.

He argues that Mohammad’s career must be considered within the context of the urban and mercantile society of seventeenth century Mecca and rejects the idea that Islam was principally the creation of a nomadic environment.

The Fragrant Scent is the first English translation of the work of the great eighteenth-century scholar Sayyid Abd al-Rahman al-Aydarus. The book is a meditation on the fleeting thoughts that pass through the mind of the spiritual wayfarer, and the author's aim is to provide guidance for those on the spiritual path. The author draws on a rich selection of authoritative sources to answer key questions about the wayfarer's experiences, including the Qur'an, the Hadith, Ghazali, Jilani and Abu Madyan. This concise, yet wide-ranging treatise covers topics such as the different types of passing thoughts and their causes, knowledge of the soul and finding the perfect spiritual guide, as well as the necessity of retreat and practicing one's knowledge. Aydarus was a follower of the famous Ba Alawi Sufi order from Hadhramaut in southern Yemen known for its piety and careful observance of the Shari?a. The Fragrant Scent reflects the Ba Alawi order's emphasis on maintaining a balance between the inner and outer worlds, making the work an accessible entry point to understanding the profound spiritual insights and everyday practice of Sufism.

This book discusses the common principles of morality and ethics derived from divinely endowed intuitive reason through the creation of al-fitr' a (nature) and human intellect (al-‘aql). Biomedical topics are presented and ethical issues related to topics such as genetic testing, assisted reproduction and organ transplantation are discussed. Whereas these natural sources are God’s special gifts to human beings, God’s revelation as given to the prophets is the supernatural source of divine guidance through which human communities have been guided at all times through history. The second part of the book concentrates on the objectives of Islamic religious practice – the maqa' sid – which include: Preservation of Faith, Preservation of Life, Preservation of Mind (intellect and reason), Preservation of Progeny (al-nasl) and Preservation of Property. Lastly, the third part of the book discusses selected topical issues, including abortion, assisted reproduction devices, genetics, organ transplantation, brain death and end-of-life aspects. For each topic, the current medical evidence is followed by a detailed discussion of the ethical issues involved.

Contrary to popular opinion, the bulk of Islamic law does not come from the Qur’an but rather from hadith, first-hand reports of the prophet Muhammad’s words and deeds, passed from generation to generation. However, with varying accounts often only committed to paper a century after the death of Muhammad, Islamic scholars, past and present, have been faced with complex questions of historical authenticity. Informative and accessible, this wide-ranging introduction provides a detailed exploration of the collection and criticism of hadith and examines the controversy surrounding its role in modern Islam. Complete with a glossary, extensive bibliography, and helpful diagrams, Hadith is perfectly suited to students, scholars, and the general reader interested in this critical element of Islam. Jonathan A.C. Brown is Assistant Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies, University of Washington, Seattle. He is the author of Muhammad: A Very Short Introduction.

Praying for health is a significant Islamic custom alongside seeking medical treatment, and has become a vital part of Muslim culture. There are two areas of focus in this book: the methodology and criteria of praying for health, and the results of a study on the effect of prayer on Muslim patients' well-being. This study was conducted at Brigham and Women's Hospital, a Harvard Medical School teaching affiliate in Boston, MA. Twenty-Five Remedies, a work by prominent contemporary Muslim scholar Said Nursi, included in this book, further enriches the scope of the subject of prayer and healing.
