Ayatollah Sayyid Fadhel Hosseini Milani
When the author was 18 years old, in answer to the many theological problems that preoccupied youthful minds, he published his first book on Islamic theology. Enthusiastic reception of his Arabic-language text (Defending the Faith) led to its translation and publication in the Persian language. He later went on to teach Islamic Theology at the College of Jurisprudence in Najaf, the Islamic Seminary in Mashhad and the International Colleges for Islamic Studies in London. His long experience in teaching the various aspects of this subject is apparent in this work. Unlike similarly titled works, which are mainly concerned with the historic contributors to the subject, this book presents the principles of the creed - that is, what Muslims actually believe - according to the schools of theology of the Twelver Shi'ah, the Ash'arites and the Mu'atazilites.
House of Sorrows
The first ever book in English (translation of Baytul Ahzan) details the last six months of the life of the only daughter of Prophet Muhammad, Fatema az-Zahra, and focuses on the status of Lady Fatema from Qur'anic verses and traditions and delves into the events immediately preceding the death of Prophet Muhammad. There are a number of events discussed in this text such as Saqifah, the taking of Fadak, and then, in vivid words, goes through the last months of her life. Be prepared to shed tears as you read the heart-wrenching events of what happened to az-Zahra as recounted and narrated in the major books of the Ahlus Sunnah and the Shi'a.

Jesus Through the Qur'an and Shi'ite Narrations
Jesus Through the Qur’an and Shi’ite Narrations draws from various Islamic texts to provide a comprehensive selection of excerpts pertaining to the life and moral teachings of Jesus. Approaching Christ from an Islamic perspective, the book offers readers a rare opportunity to understand the significance of Jesus in Islam — the Shi’ite sect in particular — and to gain a better understanding of the faith, not only as it contrasts with Christianity but also as it compares.
