Since 2015, the editorial staff of Azzagra Foundation has been immersed in an intense activity of translation and creation of a small but selected collection of works in line with the ideals and concerns of the Azzagra Foundation. This staff consists of professional translators and proofreaders with a wide experience in this specialized field.
We have tried this first selection of works to represent different aspects of Islam, from the sacred Law to the spiritual depths of Sufism, through the rich philosophical heritage and the beauty of the prophetic tradition, with commentary by masters of wisdom.
Azzagra Foundation has already carried out the translation of the following works, which are still waiting to be published.
–Topics on Islamic Philosophy: A «walk» through several general topics of Islamic philosophy. A more general and informative vision of some of them is offered, while others are covered in greater depth.
–Tuhfat al-Nâsik («The Gift of the devotee»): A treatise of Maliki jurisprudence, written by Shaykh Muhammad Kasbi, imam of our Mosque of Rosales, with a commentary excerpted from the Minah al-quddûsiyya, a masterpiece written by the famous spiritual master of the last century, the shaykh al-‘Alâwî
–The Epistle of Unity (Risâlat al-ahadiyah): Al-Balyani’s famous Sufi work, attributed to Ibn ‘Arabi for centuries. A classic of the deepest Sufi spirituality. This short book introduces a view of the world which is very different to that held by many people. For some, it may serve a purpose in shattering preconceived notions and presenting an entirely new perspective, which opens up a compassionate and responsive universe. It reflects an ardent desire to reach beyond the peripheral uncertainties of everyday life and discover, for ourselves, a certainty in the oneness of being which constantly flows through everything that is.
The book explains that in order to realize your essential oneness with reality, it is not necessary to eliminate your «separate» self or ego because that illusory self never existed. Rather, it is necessary to know your true self in order to realize your oneness with all being. Nothing essentially changes. When you know yourself «ignorance simply disappears» and how things really are becomes clear.
–Lives of the Prophets: An entertaining and at the same time rigorous introduction to the lives of the major prophets of Islam, aimed at children and young readers. Our translation staff has relied on books on Life of the prophets written by classical authors such as Ibn Kathir, al-Tha‘labi and others. Read More (Español)
–The Tuhfat al-saniyya commentary to the Matn al-aŷurrumiyya: This book is one of the most used commentary to the most celebrated classical Arabic grammar book, al Ajurrumiyah, by Ibn Ajurrum (672-723 A.H.). the first book on Arabic grammar rules. The Arabs themselves had long before initiated a formal and systematic methodology to teach Arabic Grammar to their children. From the systems the Arabs employed one text in particular shines far more clearly than any other, it has withstood the test of time and is still after more than seven hundred years since its authors death, being taught throughout the Arab world.
–The wisdom of Muhammad: The Prophetic traditions address all aspects of man’s earthly life, as well as the spiritual life, the path to the world beyond impermanence. This is a collection of several traditions, drawn from the canonical collections of hadîth and from other authoritative traditional sources, together with illuminating commentaries, drawn from the writings of sufis from all the times.
–Islamic and traditional medicine prophetic texts: This is a selection of classical texts of «prophetic medicine» and traditional Islamic medicine. It includes the tibb nabawi masterpieces of Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya and Jalâl al-Dîn al-Suyûtî, as well as excerpts of al-Azraqi’s Tashil al-manafi‘. Healing with the Medicine of the Prophet is the panacea for those in search of good health. It is a magnificent work that is a treasure every Muslim household. Although they were written by their authors over six hundred and fifty years ago, they are extremely timely works for our generation, in which health and natural health care products have become an important aspect of the lives of so many. The authors present the guidance of the Prophet in dealing with a variety of health issues, including treatment of ailment and preventive remedies to keep the body fit. As the Qur’an and Sunnah are the main sources of Islamic lifestyle, it only stands to reason that they should likewise be referred to in the matters of health and fitness. This is the approach taken by the authors as they present verses of the Qur’an and statements of the Prophet as his main reference in these issues of health and medicines. The final chapters of this work include an extremely beneficial glossary of remedies, herbs, foods and other natural substances that aid in the journey towards better health.
