    THE WORLD OF THE JINN & DEVILS Title:THE WORLD OF THE JINN & DEVILS
    Written by: Umar S. al-Ashqar

    Some people think that writing about this topic is writing about a matter that should remain on the periphery of knowledge. They believe in going over this topic in the quickest of fashions and not giving it too much thought.

    They think that the benefits of such a study are very limited, and that being ignorant of this topic is not harmful at all.

    However, this is not an irrelevant matter. Humans today spend billions of dollars, with which they could develop countries and end poverty in the farthest reaches of the world, on research to discover whether there is any possibility of life on nearby planets. Scientists spend a great deal of their time and resources on this question. What about living beings that are known to exist right here with us on earth? They live in our houses and they eat and drink with us. In fact they affect our thoughts and our hearts and even drive us to destroy our own selves and to spill one another's blood.

    No Price can be put on the importance of the texts of the Qur'an and authentic hadeeth that have reached us, giving us knowledge of this matter.

    Those texts uncover for us the secrets of these fellow-creatures: the world of the jinn.

      THE MESSENGERS AND THE MESSAGES Title:THE MESSENGERS AND THE MESSAGES (In the light of the Qur'an and Sunnah)
    Written by:Umar S. al-Ashqar

    Is it true that mankind today has reached such a level of progress that they have no need of the Messengers and their teachings? Are humans capable today of guiding themselves without referring to the methods set out by the messengers?

    The answer is No. Mankind need to know the messenger, and the Message he conveyed. They have to believe in what he said and obey him. The only way to achieve happiness and success in this world and in the Hereafter is to follow the Messenger. By following the messenger, man will become aware of the details of good and evil, and Allah will be pleased with him. His guidance, man is like a fish out of water. When man abandons this, then his heart is spoiled.
