'From Seed to Cedar' is a guide for Muslim families by a prominent scholar of Islam. Dr Fethullah Gulen's approach to education of Muslim kids are grounded on authoritative sources of knowledge in Islam, that is, The Qur'an and the 'way' of Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, The Sunnah.

From character education to teaching basics of Islamic practice, this book covers tasks for parents inside and outside home.

The author says:

"On certain issues, I think it's best to have a consensus beforehand with the readers. Unless we agree on the essential matters of our subject, it will not be easy to benefit from this book. It should be taken into account that it is not possible to reach a consensus with those who are not disturbed by the moral corruption of immense scale in our surroundings. First of all, for readers to benefit from this book, they need to feel pain in their hearts for the moral corruption surrounding themselves, their family, friends, and neighbours.

Throughout history, no society was lasting with immorality. I cannot tell you if any exceptions existed or not, but there is no doubt that the people who stood for a long time without being pushed aside by history were respected for their moral values." ---M. Fethullah Gülen.
