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: President’s New Term Should Focus on Human Rights
Key Reforms Needed to Address Persistent Problems
August 6, 2009

President Yudhoyono had some successes on human rights in his first term, but he needs to make sure those reforms really stick. The time is ripe to address areas where reforms have been bogged down, such as the military, corruption and impunity.
Elaine Pearson, deputy Asia director
(New York) — Indonesia’s recently re-elected president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, should undertake comprehensive measures to address persistent human rights problems, Human Rights Watch said in a letter today. In the letter, Human Rights Watch makes specific recommendations on the issues of corruption, military business, impunity, religious freedom, freedom of expression, the situation in Papua, and child domestic workers.

Some major reforms during Yudhoyono’s first term addressing military business, corruption and accountability have lost steam. For instance, the Anti-Corruption Court, established in 2004, could cease to exist if legislation regarding the court is not passed by September 30. The government has also failed to prosecute senior military commanders for atrocities committed in Aceh and East Timor.

“President Yudhoyono had some successes on human rights in his first term, but he needs to make sure those reforms really stick,” said Elaine Pearson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “The time is ripe to address areas where reforms have been bogged down, such as the military, corruption and impunity.”

Human Rights Watch also expressed concern about rising religious intolerance, particularly against the Ahmadiyah, a religious minority now banned in Indonesia, and the continuing use of criminal laws to repress freedom of expression. The Human Rights Watch letter urged Indonesia, as a party to the major human rights treaties, to live up to its international legal obligations.

“Indonesia should take its obligations under international treaties seriously and this means protecting the rights of marginalized groups, whether they are religious minorities, child domestic workers or Papuans,” Pearson said. “President Yudhoyono could make human rights his legacy and be a role model for other emerging democracies.”
