'The Ways of the Righteous’ - Inspirational Stories from the Lives of Shi’a Scholars

Posted on Mon, 2015-03-23 11:51

The World Federation of KSIMC is pleased to bring you this excellent publication 'The Ways of the Righteous' written by Shaykh Jaffer Ladak.

Shaykh Jaffer Ladak has collected and translated stories from the lives of the greatest scholars from the Shi'ite school of thought, many of which have previously been unpublished.  The Ways of the Righteous provides inspirational anecdotes and insights into the lives of the recent and contemporary scholars.  For those wishing to better acquaint themselves with the scholarly personalities, this work affords the reader with a profound awareness of their struggles, disciplines and interactions.  It also includes a unique commentary utilising the holy Qur'an and prophetic narrations to accentuate lessons from many of the stories.

Below are reviews received from some of our readers:

 “Sheikh Jaffer Ladak presents a refreshing approach to otherwise bare historical facts about the life and times of some of our great scholars.”  “This work would definitely help readers to increase their faith and understanding of the sacrifices these scholars have given to keep the bright light of Islam glowing.”

(Mu'allim Mustafa Mawjee, Scholar and Speaker)

 “I have found my dear brother Shaykh Jaffer Ladak's compilation of fascinating stories from the lives of the righteous scholars to be an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in being inspired.”

“They further teach us the significance of adopting the most virtuous moral and ethical characteristics and traits in our journey of life.”

(Syed Hadi al-Qazwini, Scholar and Speaker)
