Written by one of the outstanding scholars of the 20th Century, Islamic Manners
is a vital book that exemplifies the sublime Islamic Personality.
Shaykh Abdul Fattah Abu Ghudda (1917-1997) was a leading Hanafi
(Syrian) scholar in the field of hadith
and strove in not only narrating Prophetic traditions but also making them a living reality.
This book discusses essential adab
(manners) and covers the following areas -
*** Importance of Appearance,
*** Entering and Leaving a House,
*** The Manners of Visiting,
*** The Manners of Conversation,
*** Social Manners,
*** Communicating with non-Muslims,
*** The Manners of Eating & Drinking,
*** Visiting a Sick Person,
Muslims possess a great wealth in manners and styles manifested in the life of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace
, and the lives of his companions. This book will enable us to gain insightful glimpses to his personality and manners. It has been composed by selecting important texts of great magnitude and essence. The ahadith
cited in this book are either sahih
(authentic) or hasan
This book has been written mainly for the many Muslim brothers and sisters who disregard these manners and misinterpret them.
In compiling it, I hope to remind them of these manners. I do not claim to be better or less in need of practicing these manners; but it is the duty of enjoining good and forbidding evil and observing the order of Allah :
"And remind [them] for a reminder benefits the believers."
May Allah enable all of us to benefit from good reminders and make this of benefit to my readers and myself. May Allah protect us and be our guide in this life and in the Hereafter. About the Author :
