In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

We commend your on your desire to seek the sacred knowledge. 

We pray that the Almighty guides you towards beneficial knowledge and keeps you firm on the straight path.

We recommend that you seek the required sacred knowledge under the guidance of reliable and qualified Ulamā (Islamic scholars) from Ahlus-Sunnah was Jama’ah. If this is not possible, then one should make use of reliable and authentic books suitable for non-scholars; i.e. on the translation & commentary of the Qur’ān, alongside Fiqh for a grounding on the core worship and pillars of faith. 

We recommend the following translations & commentaries of the Noble Qur’ān:

  • Ma’ārif ul Qur’ān by Mufti Shafi’ Uthmani (translation & commentary)
  • Tafseer-e-Uthmani - translation by Shaykh al-Hind Mawlānā Mahmūd Hasan & commentary by Shaykh al-Hind Mawlānā Mahmūd Hasan (first 3 surahs) & Mufti Shabbir Ahmad Uthmani
  • The Noble Qur’ān by Mufti Taqi Uthmani (translation & explanatory notes)
  • Qur’ān made Easy by Mufti Afzal Hoosen Elias (translation with brief explanatory notes)
  • The Qur’ān by Sahih International, Jeddah, KSA (translation)
  • The Glorious Qur’ān by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall (Translation)
  • The Noble Qur’ān by Muhsin Khan (Translation)
  • The Glorious Qur’ān by Abdul Majid Daryabadi (translation & commentary)

Please refer to Ta’leemul Haqq as an introduction for Hanafi fiqh, including how to prepare for and offer salāh (prayer).

This book is an entry level guide to the core pillars of Islam; with step by step instructions, as appropriate.


Note: Islamic knowledge should be studied under the tutorship and guidance of a qualified and reliable Aalim (scholar), thus seek guidance and refer questions if they arise.

And Allah Ta’āla knows best
