Abu `Abdillah (prayers be upon him) from his ancestors (the Imams (prayers be upon all of them) has said the following: A man once came to the Noble Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah what is knowledge?’ The Noble Prophet replied, "It is silence." The man then asked, "Then what?" The Noble Prophet said, "It is listening." The man asked, then what?" The Noble Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) said, "Then it is memorizing." The man asked, "Then what?" The Noble Prophet said, "Then it is to practice according to what you have learnt." The man then asked, "Then what O’ Messenger of Allah?" The Noble Prophet said, "Then it is to propagate what one has learned."
A BRIEF HISTORY OF AL-FATH AL-MUBIN PUBLICATIONS
Al-Fath Al-Mubin Publications, named after the introductory verse of Surah 49 of the Noble Qur'an, Al-Fath, was formed in late 1999 to facilitate the e-publication of Islamic literature. Shortly thereafter, we launched the Islamic Publishing House (www.iph.ca) to oversee the graphic design and typesetting, while maintaining the Al-Fath Al-Mubin Publications site for the free distribution of our translation work.
EXPANSION OF OUR EFFORTS IN THE FIELD OF TABLIGH
Having published numerous articles in English, and keeping the saying of the 6th Imam quoted above in mind, we expanded our efforts, by God's grace by translating and publishing our first work, Secrets of the Hajj written by the great scholar of Islamice ethics and spirituality, the Grand Scholar Shaykh Husayn Mazaheri. This book has been widely acclaimed with an Audio MP3 version coming out soon - filling a gap in the English language on material that expounds on the mystical and unknown secrets of this spiritual journey to ancient land of the Hijaz - where Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, and the Imams walked. From that point, we have written, translated and published the following works:
1. A Mother's Prayer
2. Morals of the Masumeen
3. Sunan An-Nabi
4. The Last Luminary and Ways to Delve into the Light
5. Weapon of the Believer
6. Moral Management
and many more titles published under the Islamic Publishing House.
To date, we have translated and or written over 40 full-length books - more details on these can be found in the "full lengths" section of our site or by CLICKING HERE
