Islamic books you must read

“Whoever follows a path in the pursuit of knowledge, Allah will make a path to paradise easy for him.” (Hadith Bukhari)

Modern day life seems to have made us very busy than usual, but when giving some thought our amount of time hasn't changed we still have the same 24 hours. In the midst of our busy lifestyle we have a responsibility to seek knowledge to  live a life of righteousness in preparation for the Hereafter.

It is very important to keep ourselves educated on the beautiful religion of Islam. Allah subhanahu wa ta-ala has commanded us to seek knowledge, regardless of age and gender. Therefore, we hope this will help to guide you towards investing your time and money  in books and you can become the best version of yourselves in order to please our Creator.
