We all know how important it is to engage in literary pursuits - especially those that can help us grow spiritually, but with our busy, on-the-go lifestyles, finding time for reading can be a challenge. That's why we are excited to announce the launch our first ever audio book!
There was no better choice for this project than the extremely popular 'Ways of the Righteous' by Shaykh Jaffer Ladak, which he wrote to introduce the community to contemporary or recently deceased scholars and encourage a deeper understanding of the general scholarly elite.
We had originally published the hardcopy version of this book in 2015 and went on to convert it to Kindle format available on Amazon (here). The publication was a hit with readers across all ages.
"As a youth, living far from the hub of Islamic studies and scholarship, I often find myself disconnected from the grand scholars of the time. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for spiritual motivation and upliftment," said Sajeda Sajan, Head of CoEJ Youth Desk.
Well-respected (and much missed) local scholar, Marhoom Mu'allim Mustafa Mawjee had also read and approved of the book. He commented on it saying, "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."
We are now pleased to present this collection of inspirational anecdotes and insights into the lives of the recent and contemporary scholars, narrated in the voice of the author himself. You can hear Shaykh relate stories that he has personally researched and been touched by to form a better, deeper understanding of how our scholars apply Islamic principles in their daily lives.
The versatility of audio books means that you can listen to this compilation on the train or bus, on your way to work or even whilst taking a walk. Enrich your normal daily routines by adding in an enlightening audio experience - how much easier can it get?
Plus, the book is free! It's dedicated to the hastening of the reappearance of our Awaited Saviour (atfs) and you can download it from here or download the audiobooks.com app on your smartphone and listen to it without creating an account!
