Introducing the re-release of the timeless work: The Content of Character.
Can we change by listening ? Can we be so touched and inspired by words that we are moved to renew and remake ourselves as better, nobler, and more merciful human beings? The impact that good words have had on humanity throughout history resoundingly decalres we can. These wise sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, collected here, are designed to do just that - to guide us to the very best in ourselves.
Compiled by the renowned East African scholar, Al-Amin 'Ali Mazru'i, this collection brings together sayings that encourage good character. By listening closely, we may hear something that speaks to us, speaks to our conscience and our heart, and moves us to become better human beings.
As a scholar, Shaykh Al-Amin Mazrui attempted to be a bridge between Islam and modernity. Shaykh Al-Amin’s choice of these favored sayings of the Prophet ? in “The Content of Character” — translated and introduced here by Hamza Yusuf — was influenced by his effort to be a bridge-builder, especially between the values of tradition and the norms of modernity, between the wisdom of religion and the compassion of humanity.
Contains original Arabic text of hadiths as well.
