Rekomendasi Buku-Buku Islami di Scribd

Ramadan memang sudah usai, tapi semoga semangat Ramadan terus menyala di hati kita semua ya. 

Bulan ini saya kembali langganan Scribd setelah beberapa bulan saya stop karena banyaknya timbunan buku fisik yang belum dibaca di rumah juga ebook yang belum dibaca di Gramedia Digital, Google Playbook dan Kindle. Alasannya adalah alasan klasik: mau coba eksploring ebook biar bisa stop jajan buku fisik dulu. Tapi gak sampai sehari langsung pecah karena ada diskon buku-buku Penerbit Kakatua yang harganya jadi 15,000 saja per buku. Saya langsung jajan 10 buku. Jadi mungkin tidak butuh alasan tertentu untuk kembali langganan Scribd atau layanan lainnya ya :').

Karena sudah lama tidak membuka Scribd, saya jadi kurang tahu update buku-buku terbaru disana. Ternyata ada banyak buku baru yang sedang lumayan populer seperti It Ends With Us-nya Colleen Hoover dan buku Co-Ho lainnya. Ada juga buku-buku Fredrick Backman favorit saya, serta yang tak kalah menyenangkan adalah koleksi buku-buku islami di Scribd. Kebanyakan adalah buku-buku Kube Publishing yang kalau sudah sampai Indonesia harganya aduh lumayan sekali. Satu buku fisiknya berkisar 150-300ribuan. Jadi lumayan sekali bisa ngirit kalau baca di Scribd! Salah satu buku yang ada disini dan merupakan favorit saya adalah: Revive Your Heart-nya Nouman Ali Khan. Saya punya buku ini di Kindle. Beli pakai alamat India dengan harga sekitar 70ribuan kalau gak salah. 

Berikut rekomendasi lainnya yang mungkin bisa kamu coba baca di Scribd!

1. Revive Your Heart - Nouman Ali Khan

Goodreads blurb: 

Revive Your Heart is a call for spiritual renewal and an invitation to have a conversation with one of the world’s most recognizable voices on Islam, Nouman Ali Khan.

This collection of essays is disarmingly simple, yet it challenges us to change. To revise our actions, our assumptions and our beliefs so we can be transformed from within, as well as externally.

It aims to help modern Muslims maintain a spiritual connection with Allah and to address the challenges facing believers today: the disunity in the Muslim community, terrorists acting in the name of Islam, and the disconnection with Allah.

These challenges and more are tackled by Nouman Ali Khan, with his profound engagement with the Qur'an, in his trademark voice that is sought out by millions of Muslims on a daily basis.

2. Lesson from Surah Yusuf - Dr. Yasir Qadhi

Goodreads blurb: 

Surah Yusuf, a chapter of the Qur'an (Koran), was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad at a critical juncture of his life. This was the time when he had gone through ten to eleven years of ridicule and rejection in Makkah, a time when he lost his wife and partner, Khadija, a time when he lost his dear uncle Abu Talib. Allah revealed this precious surah to strengthen the Prophet Muhammad's heart. To remind him that he lives in the footsteps of the great prophets of the past and that Allah's help and support is there. 

This surah is full of meaningful messages of patience, reliance on Allah and how to overcome hardship and betrayal. It was also educational, teaching the Prophet Muhammad the answers to queries that were posed to him by the local Jews and Muslims. Finally this surah was a timely morale booster for the Prophet and his companions in a time of need. Yasir Qadhi has clearly divided the surah into related themes, as per the revelations, so that the reader can easily understand and grasp the great wealth of knowledge relayed through this surah to all.

3. Lesson form Surah Al-Kahf - Dr. Yasir Qadhi

Goodreads blurb: 

The Qur’an is full of parables. Each one, when its meaning is unpacked and understood, offers wisdom and guidance. Surah Kahf, chapter 18 from the Qur’an, is particularly thought provoking, and Muslims are advised to read it at least once a week.

But why? And what can we gain from it?

In this book Yasir Qadhi leads us through Surah Kahf, unfolding the lines, stories and symbols that have inspired people for over a thousand years: the people of the cave, Prophet Musa’s momentous encounter with Khidr, the two men and their gardens, and Gog and Magog.

And surely We have explained matters in people in the Qur’an in diverse ways, using all manners of parables. (Qur’an 18:54)

Through Yasir Qadhi’s unmistakeable voice, modern Muslims may glimpse some of the Qur’an’s profound meaning.

Say: “If the sea were to become ink to record the Words of my Lord, indeed the sea would all be used up before the Words of my Lord are exhausted…” (Qur’an 18:109)

4. The Heart of The Quran: Commentary on Surah Yasin with Diagrams and illustration - Asim Khan

Goodreads blurb: 

The Heart of the Qur'an is a collection of loving letters sent from God to humanity. The Prophet Noah would plead with his people, saying "I am delivering my Lord's messages to you" [Qur'an 7:62]. With the current paradoxical climate of increasing secularization and the rise of fundamentalism across the world, there is no better time to search for fresh insight and guidance from the Qur'an. 

The Heart of The Qur'an is a well-researched commentary on Surah Yasin. It is written in simple English and is complete with diagrams and illustrations to create an engaging read. The commentary is profound and inspiring, it masterfully highlights the nuances of the Qur'ān's language and repeatedly draws the reader's attention towards practical changes they can make in their lives. 

5. Angles in Your Presence - Omar Suleiman

Amazon blurb: 

Throughout your existence, there are angels in your presence. But it’s your actions that cause those angels to either praise you or disgrace you. Through this book, we will explore the actions that invite these blessed unseen beings to pray upon you, and carry your name and mention to the One who created us all.

6. Allah Loves... - Omar Suleiman

Goodreads blurb:

In Allah Loves… Omar Suleiman explores who and what Allah loves so that we may become one of those who are beloved to Him.

The Prophet Muhammad said that one of the supplications of Prophet Dawud was, “O Allah I ask You for Your love and the love of those that love You and all of those actions that would bring me closer to being loved by you.” 

Looking at our actions, characteristics and beliefs, this book will help us become better people, citizens and believers that are deserving of Allah's endless, infinite and ever-lasting love.

Made up of 30 short and spiritually enriching chapters, this book is a reminder that throughout our lives, the Creator's love is always there, increasing through everyday actions such as showing generosity or remaining consistent with unnoticeable good deeds.

7. Prayers of The Pious - Omar Suleiman

Goodreads blurb:

This inspirational collection of prayers and reminders is the perfect companion for anyone who wishes to connect to the Divine. Shaykh Omar Suleiman provides us with thirty short prayers taken from the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad and the early generations, each with a short reminder to deepen the impact of the prayer in our lives.

Prayers of the Pious provides spiritual gems that serve as valuable wisdom and practical advice for the soul. By reading this short work with an attentive heart, the reader can cultivate love for God and His Messenger and live life with gratitude and contentment.

8. Women in the Quran - Asma Lamrabet

Goodreads blurb:

Today, the issue of Muslim women is held hostage between two perceptions: a conservative Islamic approach and a liberal Western approach. At the heart of this debate Muslim women are seeking to reclaim their right to speak in order to re-appropriate their own destinies, calling for the equality and liberation that is at the heart of the Qur'an.

However, with few female commentators on the meaning of the Qur'an and an overreliance on the readings of the Qur'an compiled centuries ago this message is often lost. In this book Asma Lamrabet demands a rereading of the Qur'an by women that focuses on its spiritual and humanistic messages in order to alter the lived reality on the ground.

By acknowledging the oppression of women, to different degrees, in social systems organized in the name of religion and also rejecting a perspective that seeks to promote Western values as the only means of liberating them, the author is able to define a new way. One in which their refusal to remain silent is an act of devotion and their demand for reform will lead to liberation.
