7. Arabic Thought and Its Place in History by De Lacy O’Leary Price: 2.98$
From Forward by the Author
It is the effort of the following pages to trace the transmission of Hellenistic thought through the medium of Muslim philosophers and Jewish thinkers who lived in Muslim surroundings, to show how this thought, modified as it passed through a period of development in the Muslim community and itself modifying Islamic ideas, was brought to bear upon the culture of mediæval Latin Christendom. So greatly had it altered in external form during the centuries of its life apart, that it seemed a new type of intellectual life and became a disturbing factor which diverted Christian philosophy into new lines and tended to disintegrate the traditional theology of the Church, directly leading up to the Renascence which gave the death-blow to mediæval culture: so little had it altered in real substance that it used the same text-books and treated very much the same problems already current in the earlier scholasticism which had developed independently in Latin Christendom. It will be our effort so to trace the history of mediæval Muslim thought as to show the elements which it had in common with Christian teaching and to account for the points of divergence.

6. The Shah Namah: The Epic of Kings (with Active TOC) by HAKIM ABOL-GHASEM FERDOWSI TOOSI Price: 1.99$
The Shahnameh or The Epic of Kings is one of the definite classics of the world. It tells hero tales of ancient Persia. The contents and the poet’s style in describing the events takes the reader back to the ancient times and makes he/she sense and feel the events. Ferdowsi worked for thirty years to finish this masterpiece.
An important feature of this work is that during the period that Arabic language was known as the main language of science and literature, Ferdowsi used only Persian in his masterpiece. As Ferdowsi himself says “Persian language is revived by this work”.
This is the translation of The Epic of Shahnameh Ferdowsi by Helen Zimmern.

Third book of Orange Sky Project, The Enclosed Garden of the Truth: The Hadiqatu’ l-Haqiqat by HAKIM ABU’ L-MAJD MAJDUD SANA’I OF GHAZNA a.k.a. Sana’i is published on Kindle Store today. This is the first published Kindle edition of this book in the world.
This title is an attempt at a presentation of a part of Sana’i's most famous work, which, it is hoped may serve to give an idea of his manner of thought not only to Oriental scholars, but also to non-Orientalists who may be interested in the mysticism of Persia.
Watch this space for great books on Kindle. There will be more coming.
You can access the book from the below link:
This rare book – separate from the widely-available Gulistan and Bustan – is a small volume of poetry embodying precepts which would do no discredit to the philosophy of the 21st Century CE. Concise and elegant, the work is most popular throughout the length and breadth of the Persian-speaking East. In addition to beauty of diction, it is written in a metre which flows in easy cadence, and fixes the words of the poem on the mind. Hence the lines are committed to memory to an extent that is probably not surpassed by any work in the Persian language. Lines from Sadi’s poems are still commonly used in conversations by Iranians today.

1. The Alchemy of Happiness by AL GHAZZALI (with active TOC) Price: 2.99$
Translated in 1909.
The Kimiya-yi Sa’ādat was written towards the end of Abū Ḥāmid Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad al-Ghazālī’s life shortly before 499/1105. During the time before it was written the Muslim world was considered to be in a state of political as well as intellectual unrest. al-Ghazali noted that there were constant disputes regarding the role of philosophy and scholastic theology and Sufi’s became chastised for their neglect of the ritual obligations of Islam. Upon its release, the Kimiya-yi sa’ādat allowed al-Ghazali to considerably reduce the tensions between the scholars and mystics.— Excerpted from Kimiya-yi sa’ādat on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
