Islamic Manners by 'Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghuddah

Written by one of the outstanding scholars of the 20th Century, Islamic Manners is a vital book that exemplifies the character and personality of every Muslim. Shaykh Abdul Fattah Abu Ghudda (1917-1997) was a leading scholar in the field of hadith. 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
Weddings Visiting a Sick Person
Condolences

In this slim volume outlining everything a Muslim needs to know about the etiquette of daily actions, Abu Ghuddah begins by reminding us that manners are for everyone and at every time. We need to know the manners of not only major actions but also minor actions. He says that manners ‘refine the character and bring us closer to the hearts and minds of others. Also, it makes life easier as we know what to do and what to expect from others.’

Twelve sections outline manners related to appearance, entering and leaving a house, visiting others, conversation, social manners, communicating with non-Muslims, eating and drinking, wedding, traveling, and condolences.

Comprehensive and accessible, Islamic Manners is popular with individual readers and with book clubs.
