Book 1 - The Concise Legacy
The Concise Legacy, the first in the Golden Advice Series, is an advice given by Ahmad ibn Taymiyah on matters which will set right one's affairs of the deen (religion) and dunyaa (world). The framework for this advice is provided by the advice of the Prophet (S) to Mu'aadh ibn Jabal (R): ""O Mu'aadh, fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one and it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people."" (Tirimidhee)
The advice contained in this book covers what would make one attain the good of this world and the hereafter insha Allaah. Other than being a discourse of how a servant can remain attached to his Lord, the advice contained in this book also focuses on interpersonal relationship between human beings (i.e. being good to others by giving them their rights, being just to them etc).

Book 2 - O My Son! (The Advice of Luqmaan)
One of the duties parents owe their children is to guide them aright by educating them. They are obligated to correct their children's errors and most importantly guide them to live a life that is pleasing to Allaah (Azawajal) by teaching them the means of achieving that.
To assist the parents in discharging these responsibilities, Allaah (A) gave clear guidance in the Qur'an. He gave us the example of a dutiful father-Luqman and the advice he gave to his son: ""And (remember) when Luqman said to his son when he was advising him: '0 my son! Join not in worship others with Allaah. Verily! Joining others in worship with Allaah is a great Zulm (injustice) indeed."" (Luqmaan [311: 13)
Our success as parents is determined largely by how well we are able to discharge those responsibilities Allaah O has placed on us regarding our children. This book explains different aspects of the advice of Luqmaan to his son and its significance for a successful life.

Book 3 - Do not Become Angry
Much of the flaws that afflict the individual and the community stem from the singular defect of Anger. Allaah (j) and His Messenger (S) have given us instructions regarding the malady and advised us to keep it in check. This work is an extensive discussion on these instructions. We hope that this concise work will aid the one who is afflicted with this flaw to find cure in, insha Allaah; while the one who is free of it will find enough incentives to keep his emotions under control.

Book 4 - Guard the Tongue
How many people have earned the wrath of Allaah as a result of misuse of their tongues? How many injuries that may never heal have been inflicted through the careless slips of the tongue? The Messenger of Allaah (S) said: ""Indeed, the servant will speak words that are pleasing to Allaah, due to which he w
