Assalamualaikum.

The other day I was browsing for mp3s of Surah Ya'asin when I stumble upon this very interesting book. It says here that this book is Translated from the Arabic book (La Tahzan) - A book that is a MUST HAVE for every Muslim adult, and teen-agers !

If I had a credit card (yes! I don't own one, long story which involves lawyers hehe) I would've bought this instantly. But then again if I bought this online, wouldn't the book be stopped at the post office and sent to the Ministry of Religious Affairs for censorship first? I guess its best I ask one of my jet setting friends to get it for me and sneak it pass the customs  kekeke... Anyway, here is a lil' bit more of the introduction about the book...

In this era, where psycho-social issues and the unstoppable lifestyle engage a human spirit in a confusing maze, it is very vital to keep the right perspectives and attitudes to lead a normal life. This is especially true not just for Muslim adults but also for Muslim teen-agers who are trying to make sense of the world around them and the Islamic values that they are trying to adhere to ! This book provides a breath of fresh air and is therefore one of the most popular books distributed on this site.

The author enumerates many stories from history and highlights the lesson learned not just from the life of the prophet Muhammed (SAWS), the last prophet of Islam, but also from the lives of other renowned non-Muslim personalities such as Napolean, Emerson and others.

The author cites the example of certain great Islamic scholars who were not rich with the wealth of material world, yet they lived very peaceful lives. One the other hand, there were rulers in the same era who although lived in castles, but their lives were in turmoil and were filled with anxiety and in worry. The book reminds the reader that sadness enervates the soul's will to act and paralyzes the body into inactivity. Sadness prevents one from action instead of compelling one towards it.

Sounds good right? Well, you can read more about the contents here and also if you wanna risk it, order it online. Good Luck.

Salaam akhi! I saw the book the other day at Hua Ho the mall. They were selling Islamic books at the basement and there it was.Mind you its the Indonesian version. So i don't think the authorities would stop the book at customs.Insya Allah :) My readers have recommended it as a great read next to The Ideal Muslimah. =)
