Buying a Book

When I announced I was converting, a very sweet sister sent me a book. It was a dua book I love to look at. So many beautiful words and ways to remember Allah. I need to work so much on encorporating it into my daily life so this book was perfect for me.

I am trying to pass this on by sending a book to a new convert I know. He is a gaming buddy of my husband's who lives in Sweden and he pronounced his shahada just recently. :D I am trying to think of what book I should send him. What kind of book would you send a new convert?

Assalaamu Alaykum sis - for a new muslim sister I would send her 'From my Sister's Lips' by Naima B. Robert. Alhamdulillah, a really good read. Another book I really enjoyed reading is 'Tawheed' by Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, Alhamdulillah an easy, and quick read. Also, the Fortress of the Muslim (it's also called Fortification of the Muslim). Wasalaam

I would really recommend "The Treatise on Rights" - Imam Zayn al-Abidin.
It's not about converting but it is probably the most beautiful book I've ever read concerning Islam except for the Qur'an.

You can see a translation of it here: http://www.imamreza.net/eng/imamreza.php?id=842. The book I have only has the translation though and not the explanation which is in this site. It's a shia book but if you read it, you'll see there's no sectarian emphasis at all. It's absolutely beautiful.

Thanks, I will check those out and see if I can find a place in Europe or something that would send it to him in Sweden.

I have a list of books in the ISLAM section of my blog...I can't think of the best one! But, I was wondering if you have the name of the du'a book that you received as I'm looking for books like that for myself. Thanks.

to cabin 3110 - the term 'shahada' is the muslim's testimony of belief in one God, Allah, and that Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is His Messenger - a transliteration of the term in arabic is 'Ash hadu anlla ilaha ilallah, wa ash hadu anna Muhammadan rasul ullah' http://discover.islamway.com/bindex.php?section=newmuslim. peace,

Assalamu Alaikum,

Yaaay, you're back! As you know, I like sending the dua book, and I also send copies of the Qur'an, and when I have extra on hand, the Zaytuna book "Submission, Faith and Beauty."
