The Ten Commandments are the basic rules of morality in the three Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The purpose of these commandments is to guide the believers, their families, and their communities toward God's straight path that guarantees one's happiness and success in this life and the Hereafter. While numerous books were published on the Biblical Ten Commandments, unfortunately, very little is known about the Quranic Ten Commandments, and most people do not even know about their existence. The following is a list of these Quranic commandments as depicted and abbreviated from Surah Al An'Am (6:151-153), and a brief statement on the main topics discussed: 1.Do not associate anything with God: Monotheism, or the Oneness of God, as the foundation of the Islamic creed, God's unique and absolute attributes, and the relationship between man and his creator. 2.Be good to your parents: The many aspects of goodness to our parents, dealing with misguided parents, and the problem of parents abused by their own children. 3.Do not kill your children because of poverty: Islamic view on abortion and infanticide in ancient and modern times 4.Do not even come near shameful deeds: The causes and consequences of committing shameful deeds i.e. adultery, fornication, incest, and homosexuality. 5.Do not kill any human soul, except for a just cause: Human life is sacred and must be protected; Islamic view on the termination of human life for committing adultery, apostasy, highway robbery, murder, killing in a just war, suicide, euthanasia, and honor killing. 6.Do not touch the orphan's property, except to improve it: Islam stance on the treatment and legal ruling to protect and support orphans, the weakest elements of the society 7.Give full measure and full weight with equity: Islamic moral values in commercial dealings 8.Speak justly even it concerns a close relative: Islam moral values in achieving justice 9.Fulfill any covenants you made in God's name: Islam moral values in fulfilling commitments and pledges 10.Follow God's straight path, and do not follow other paths: Continuously assess your place on God's straight path, implement improvement plans, and monitor progress Filling a gap in current literature, Dr. Naguib presents the first detailed study in English on each Quranic commandment and its related moral issues in ancient and modern times. The study is prepared in two volumes. The first volume covered an introduction and the first five Quranic Commandments as listed above. The full meaning of each commandment is shown by finding the entire Quran's teachings on that subject, as well as the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions. With extensive research and careful selection of Quranic verses and reliable sources of Prophet Muhammad's traditions, this book will be beneficial to students and teachers of schools and academic institutions, religions comparative studies, Quranic study groups, interfaith group dialogues, as well as any Muslim or non-Muslim who is asking: "Is there anything in the Quran similar to the Ten Commandments in the Bible?.

The world's three great monotheistic religions have spent most of their historical careers in conflict or competition with each other. And yet in fact they sprung from the same spiritual roots and have been nurtured in the same historical soil. This book--an extraordinarily comprehensive and approachable comparative introduction to these religions--seeks not so much to demonstrate the truth of this thesis as to illustrate it. Frank Peters, one of the world's foremost experts on the monotheistic faiths, takes Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and after briefly tracing the roots of each, places them side by side to show both their similarities and their differences. Volume I, The Peoples of God, tells the story of the foundation and formation of the three monotheistic communities, of their visible, historical presence. Volume II, The Words and Will of God, is devoted to their inner life, the spirit that animates and regulates them. Peters takes us to where these religions live: their scriptures, laws, institutions, and intentions; how each seeks to worship God and achieve salvation; and how they deal with their own (orthodox and heterodox) and with others (the goyim, the pagans, the infidels). Throughout, he measures--but never judges--one religion against the other. The prose is supple, the method rigorous. This is a remarkably cohesive, informative, and accessible narrative reflecting a lifetime of study by a single recognized authority in all three fields. The Monotheists is a magisterial comparison, for students and general readers as well as scholars, of the parties to one of the most troubling issues of today--the fierce, sometimes productive and often destructive, competition among the world's monotheists, the siblings called Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Dear reader, I present you with these lectures which I delivered in 1967. There are three other books on the Ten Commandments, this one deals with the last four. Each Commandment needs in fact a whole book, but I preferred to present them in such a concentrated way. They are perhaps expounded in more detail in my series on "Spiritual Warfare" and in the series of "So Many Years with the Problems of the People". I pray God may give us power that we may behave according to His commandments, written by His finger due to their great importance. Pope Shenouda III

The Quran, a book which brings glad tidings to mankind along with divine admonition, stresses the importance of man's discovery of truth on both spiritual and intellectual planes. Every book has its objective and the objective of the Quran is to make man aware of the Creation plan of God. That is, to tell man why God created this world; what the purpose is of settling man on earth; what is required from man in his pre-death life span, and what he is going to confront after death. The purpose of the Quran is to make man aware of this reality, thus serving to guide man on his entire journey through life into the after-life. The main themes of the Quran are enlightenment, closeness to God, peace and spirituality. The Quran uses several terms, tawassum, tadabbur, and tafakkur, which indicate the learning of lessons through reflection, thinking and contemplation on the signs of God scattered across the world. The present translation of the Quran and its explanatory notes are written keeping in mind these very themes.

In the 1990s alone, more than 400 works on angels have been published, adding to an already burgeoning genre. Throughout the centuries angels have been featured in, among others, theological works on scripture; studies in comparative religions; works on art, architecture and music; philosophical, sociological, anthropological, archeological and psychological works; and even a book length psychoanalytical study of the implications that our understanding of angels has for our understanding of sexual differences. Access to the multitude of angelic works is simplified with this bibliography, which lists 4,355 works, arranged alphabetically by author. Each entry contains a source for the reference, often a Library of Congress call number followed by the name of a university that holds the work. Key words pertaining to the works are included when available, and over 750 of the entries are annotated. Extensive indexes to names, subjects and centuries provide further utility.

This collection by Amnon Shiloah brings together twenty-two studies exemplifying the multi-faceted viewpoints on the world of sounds and its virtue in medieval Islamic and Judaic writings. The studies concern the origin and originators of music; the symbolic, philosophical and metaphorical interpretation of music; the transmission of knowledge; and the cultural traditions elaborated on European soil developing a particular style and musical practice, centred on the Iberian Peninsula, which was the scene of one of the most fascinating examples of cultural interchange.
