RIYADH — Renowned scholar of hadith (sayings of the Prophet — peace be upon him) and King Faisal Award laureate Dr. Mohammad Mustafa Azmi launched a set of 38 books in three different languages here at the weekend.

The books in English, Hindi and Urdu are written by Dr. Mohammad Najeeb Qasmi.

Set of 38 Islamic books in 3 languages launchedFollowing are the books in English: Quran & Hadith — Main Sources of Islamic Ideology; Diverse Aspects of Seerat-un-Nabi; Come to Prayer, Come to Success; Ramadan — A Gift from the Creator; Guidance Regarding Zakat & Sadaqaat; A Concise Haj Guide, Haj &Umrah Guide, How to perform Umrah?; Family Affairs in the Light of Quran & Hadith; Rights of People & their Dealings; Important Persons & Places in History; An Anthology of Reformative Essays, Knowledge and Remembrance; Following (Taqleed) the four Imams & Status of Imam Abu Hanifah; Journey to Madinah & Visiting the Masjid of the Prophet and His Holy Grave.

Delivering his valedictory speech on the occasion, Dr. Azmi said: “Anti-Islamic elements across the globe have united in their bid to eliminate Islam and Muslims. Even some governments are spending profoundly on organizations working to criticize the Qur’an and hadith and hence create doubt among the followers of Islam. In such a scenario, Muslims need to put aside their ideological differences and stand together in face of these challenges.”

Talking about madrases, he said: “Curriculum in Islamic seminaries require immense changes so that the products of these seminaries would be aware of the conspiracies hatched by the Western Orientalists against Islam”. Dr. Azmi is an alumni of Darul Uloom Deoband. He also studied in Cairo’s Al Azhar University in 1955 and obtained his doctorate from Cambridge University in 1966. He is the first person to computerize hadith and has many books to his credit which are taught as part of curriculum in several universities.

Dr. Nadeem Tarin, an educationist from India, appreciated the efforts of Dr. Najeeb Qasmi. He said he had been observing consistent achievements of the author in serving Islam and Muslims for two and three years hoping that this activeness would continue to grow in future. He appealed to the audience to provide every possible support in the noble cause rendered by Dr. Qasmi.

Adnan Mahmoud Usmani, currently a researcher in College of Medicine, King Saud University and editor of all the English books of Dr. Qasmi, said: “Different languages were used for preaching Islam since early period, but now the need for interpretation of Islam in English language has grown more than ever”.

Illustrating the features of the two applications “Deen-e-Islam & Hajj-e-Mabroor”, Dr. Qasmi said the two apps are available at Play Store and App Store, and can be searched by typing Najeeb Qasmi or Deen-e-Islam or Hajj-e-Mabroor. The Apps have been created in light sizes, which can be installed within two minutes. Once the app “Hajj-e-Mabroor” is installed on the mobile, pilgrims will no longer need to carry books as the app consists of ample information to guide them. Many authentic scholars of India and Pakistan have reviewed the contents and appealed to the Muslims to make maximum of these apps.
