RESEARCH AND COMPILATION WORK1. A Book on “Knowledge : Quranic Concepts”
A book on “Knowledge” based on Holy Qur’an was compiled by Alhikmah Foundation and was released in 2006. The work on the second part of the same comprising the sayings of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) about Education & Knowledge is being revised and will be published soon.
The Foundation always strive to promote and maintain peace in the society and in this regard make all efforts to sustain it. Keeping in view the importance of peace in the society, the Foundation compiled a booklet on peace “Peace: Quranic Concepts and Prophetic Teachings”. In this booklet some Quranic Verses related to peace were selected from Holy Quran and some sayings of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). The English translation of the verses and sayings has also been provided for its larger benefit.
A book titled “Quran ka Paigham-e-aman” was compiled by Alhikmah Foundation and was released on the 21st Annual Function on 18th December 2011. The book is a compilation of translations of Quranic Verses in six chapters. In the first two chapters, discussions on the concept of peace are explained. The third one defines the importance of peace according to Quran & methods for achieving it is the subject matter of Fourth chapter. While chapter Five gives the knowledge of hurdles in the path of peace. We can make every possible effort to create a peaceful society with the cooperation of the sermons from the Quran in chapter six. The books beauty is its bilingual nature which invites both Muslims & Hindus towards itself.
This book is an effort that will help in removing misunderstanding found about Islam. Any person’s assertion that Islam’s attitude towards peace is antagonistic totally lacks any evidence and is wrong. In this connection, it is hoped that with reference to the Qur’an this book will explicate the consideration given to peace in Islam and will remove misunderstandings. On this activity of the authorities of Alhikmah Foundation, we express our sense of deep appreciation for preparing a useful book that is being presented in different languages.
This book is a Hindi Version of the book titled “Peace: Quranic Teachings”. This book is translated in three languages so that the message of Peace from the holy book Quran can reach to major sections of the society.
This book offers its readers a collection of what reputed scholars and social activists had to say at its seven seminars on a variety of subjects. The collection is indeed a multum in pravo encompassing multifarious dimensions of peace, harmony and development. I am sure it will evince interest, generate further thoughts, and stimulate determinations to make our world more humane.
