BOOK: THE FAST OF RAMADAN

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

I discovered another Ramadan e-book in my e-library: The Fast of Ramadan by Shaikh Muhammad ibn Jameel Zino.

Some points that I noted as I quickly browsed through the book:

1) It’s very simple but he has covered just about all the topics related to Ramadan.

2) It’s extremely well-organised.

I remembered something as I browsed through it: the greater and more knowledgeable the author, the simpler the book. Don’t believe me? Just take a few books of the top scholars* of today and compare them to the books of the students of knowledge and you’ll see what I mean. The scholars have a simplicity to their writing that will really touch you.

[Unfortunately, this word is overused in our time. There are very few scholars in the world. For example, the UAE has NO scholars – although there are many people of knowledge here, alhamdulillah.

Who decides who is a scholar and who isn’t? Well, the scholars themselves. decide. When the scholars accept a person as a scholar, well then, he is a scholar.]
