Author: Sir Muhammad Zafarullah Khan
Description: This book provides a translation by Sir Muhammad Zafarullah Khan of the Riyad as-Salihin, literally "Gardens of the Rightous", written by the Syrian Shafi'i scholar Muhyi ad-din Abu Zakariyya' Yahya b. Sharaf an-Nawawi (1233-78), who was the author of a large number of legal and biographical work, including celebrated collection of forty well-known hadiths, the Kitab al-Arba'in (actually containing some forty three traditions.), much commented upon in the Muslim countries and translated into several European languages. His Riyad as-Salihin is a concise collection of traditions, which has been printed on various occasions, e.g. at Mecca and Cairo, but never before translated into a western language. Hence the present translation by Muhammad Zafarullah Khan will make available to those unversed in Arabic one of the most typical and widely-known collection of this type.

Indonesia hardliner’s war threat

Hardliners allegedly beat people at a tolerance rally in Jakarta
A leader of one of Indonesia’s hardline Muslim groups has told his followers to “prepare for war” after violent clashes with liberal Muslim demonstrators.

Habib Riziq heads the hardline Islamic Defenders’ Front, or FPI, whose members allegedly attacked a rally in support of religious tolerance on Sunday.

The rally was called amid debate over whether the government should ban the minority Ahmadiyah sect.

Hardliners oppose the Ahmadiyah belief that Muhammad was not the last prophet.

Several members of Mr Riziq’s group allegedly beat people at Sunday’s rally in Jakarta.

Now, with the police under pressure to make arrests, the FPI is saying it will not co-operate.

The police have been criticised for not intervening firmly enough during the disorder, and for not making arrests on the spot. Now, they say, they are making up for lost time.

A police spokesman said officers were in the process of arresting five suspects, but he would not confirm which organisation they belonged to.

Differences between militant and liberal Islamic groups in Indonesia have crystallised this year around the issue of the Ahmadiyah - a few hundred Muslims in a country of 200 million.

The minority branch’s belief that another prophet came after Muhammad has triggered calls for a government ban.
