The Miracle of Zam Zam: The Quranic story about the miracle of zam zam based on the accounts of the Messengers and combined with beautiful illustrations

Bahrain Policies of Oppression and Impunity: A special publication on the third international conference which took place between 12 and 13 February 2014 in Beirut, with the participation of representatives of 30 civil and international human rights institutions of 16 states from around the world.

Islamic Activists: The Anti-Enlightenment Democrats: In the hysteria surrounding Political Islam, it is difficult to find analysis that doesn’t feel the need to justify the existence of Islamic leaders or react to the West’s fear of ‘extremists’. Deina Ali Abdelkader shows us what Islamic leaders and activists believe and what they think about just governance. It also includes an examination of the ideas of the leaders of the populist Islamist movements in Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco.
