My Ramadhan Reading List

As the holy month is gradually coming to an end, I’ve decided to share the books I planned on reading this Ramadhan.
Experiencing Ramadhan this year, I realized that I spend a major part of my time reading conventional books. There are loads of Islamic books at home but how many have I craved time to read? I decided to spend this holy month in reading fruitful books to gain more knowledge about the deen.
We’re already in the last ten days and I’ve unfortunately completed only one of the books. Regardless, these are books that should be read at any point of the year. I will be sharing these books with you and I hope you also get them and read.
Glimpses of the Lives of Righteous People (compiled by Majdi Muhammad Ash-Shahawai)

This gives us glimpses of the lives of righteous people who were so dedicated to the deen that they forfeited the pleasures of the world. They had faith in ALlaah and dedicated their lives to worshipping Him.

Enjoy Your Life (by Dr. Muhammad ‘Abd Al-Rahaman Al-‘Arifi)

I read Enjoy Your Life several years ago and I must say that it is the best book I’ve ever read. The writer had revealed that he spent over 20 years of his life writing this book, so what do you really expect?
Enjoy Your Life touches on several areas of life that will promote tranquility, happiness, contentment, and fulfillment. Relating several stories of the incidences that occurred during the time of the Prophet (SAW), the book is a must-read for everyone striving towards attaining happiness.
110 Ahadith Qudsi (Distributed by Darussalam. Translated by Syed Masood-ul-Hasan. Revised and Commentaries by Ibrahim M. Kunna).

This book compiles authentic hadiths that centres on several aspects of life. It is a book that should be on your shelf.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir (Abridged by a group of scholars under the supervision of Shaykh Safiur-Rahman Al-Mubarakpuri. Distribution by Darussalam).

Please, who doesn’t know the renowned tafsir book by Ibn Kathir? This collection is divided into several parts and it explains verses of the Qur’an in the most authentic way.
The Productive Muslim (By Mohammed Faris)

When I finally got hold of the e-copy, I knew that I had accomplished a great feat in life. The book has been widely acclaimed by Muslims and I am certain that reading it would be worth my time.
