Course Overview

The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, said that he was sent to complete good character (Muwattaʾ Malik), which leads us to understand that sound religious practice results in good character. However, there are certain matters of conduct that one must learn from those who have them.


Among such individuals was the great scholar, Shaykh Abdul-Fattah Abu Ghudda, who, after a life of learning, teaching, and benefiting others, died in 1997. Amongst his works is his great book, Islamic Manners, in which he beautifully detailed much of the conduct believers need for gracious day-to-day dealings.


Join Shaykh Faraz Rabbani as he unpacks this excellent book, delivering crucial guidance on matters ranging from cleanliness, visiting people, dealing with non-Muslims, to death and condolences.
