عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدَ اللهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلٰامُ عَنْ آبٰائِهِ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلٰامِ :
قٰالَ جٰاءَ رَجُلٌ ﺇلَىٰ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ (صَلَّىٰ اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَ سَلَّمَ) فَقٰالَ يٰا رَسُوْلَ اللهِ مٰا الْعَلْمُ؟ قٰالَ أَلْاِنْصَاتُ قٰالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ قٰالَ أَلْاِسْتِمٰاعُ قٰالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ قٰالَ أَلْحِفْظُ قٰالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ قٰالَ أَلْعَمَلُ بِهِ قٰالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ يٰا رَسُوْلَ اللهِ قٰالَ نَشْرُهُ .
"Abu ‘Abdillah (peace be upon him) narrates from his ancestors (the A’immah (peace be upon all of them) who have said the following: “Once a man came to the Holy Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah what is knowledge?’ The Holy Prophet replied, ‘It is silence.’ The man then asked, ‘Then what?’ The Holy Prophet said, ‘It is listening.’ The man asked, ‘Then what?’ The Holy Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) said, ‘Then it is memorizing.’ The man asked, ‘Then what?’ The Holy Prophet said, ‘Then it is to practice according to what you have learnt.’ The man then asked, ‘Then what O’ Messenger of Allah?’ The Holy Prophet said, ‘Then it is to propagate what one has learned.’”
Al-Fath Al-Mubin Publications, named after the introductory verse of Surah 49 of the Noble Qur'an, Al-Fath, was formed in late 1999 to facilitate the publication of Islamic literature by providing the services of typesetting and graphic design for book covers for Muslim Publishers.
After assisting the Islamic Humanitarian Service in the design and publication of over 12 books and the World Federation of KSIMC based in the UK as well as other individuals and organizations throughout North America and the world, it was decided to expand our efforts into other areas, specifically in the spread of the true teachings of Islam as taught by the Prophet and his Ahl al-Bait (prayers be upon all of them).
It should be noted that we are independent of all other organizations and charities and are not affiliated with any political or religious parties or groups.
In the year 2002, we were blessed to be able to publish our first work, Secrets of the Hajj written by the Marja’ Taqlid and great scholar of Irfan and Akhlaq, Ayatullah al-’Uzma al-Hajj Shaykh Husain Mazaheri (may Allah grant him a long, healthy life in the cause of Islam). This book looks at the spiritual (Irfani) aspects of the hajj – something not covered by any other book on the market today.
The second book that was published in the Spring of 2003 was Morals of the Masumeen which is a 48-page activity book for young Muslim children. Packed with activities, stories and ahadith from the Masumeen, this book opens up a new chapter in the dissemination of Islamic teachings to the younger generation. In addition to these two works, we currently five other publications either in translation or under editing which should be available soon.
Our website currently hosts close to 100 originally translated articles on Ethics, Morality, Prayer and Supplication, History, Theology, Biography and other topics.
Full length books in PDF format and posters of ahadith and other gems of Islamic guidance are all available on our site for free reading / download at www.al-mubin.org which Muslims of ages and interests will be able to benefit from, Insha-Allah.
In addition, we are able to assist publishers and Muslims authors in typesetting and design of cover work for your book or magazine. For rates and more information on this service, please get in contact with us via e-mail.
