A Perfect Code of Manners and Morality

Al-Adab al-Mufrad with Full Commentary: A Perfect Code of Manners and Morality – is a collection of hadiths by Imam Al-Bukhari, which have been translated by Adil Salahi, who also provided the commentaries throughout the book.

The book is divided into various thematic chapters such as Dutifulness to Parents and Kindness to Relatives, among many others.

I find the commentaries easy to follow and allows the reader to have a better comprehension of the hadith. It is pretty comprehensive yet simple enough for readers to understand, in relation to how we conduct ourselves in the society that we live in.

As it was sold out at Wardah Books (last checked in Mar 2020), I bought this paperback version from Book Depository for SGD53.70. However, only the hardcover version is currently available.

Al-Ghazali on the Treatment of Anger, Hatred and Envy

“Know that the treatment of anger and disciplining it are a religious obligation, for it carries most people off to hell and from it many are sins born.”⁣

I became curious about Imam Al Ghazali’s books and teachings after I listened to Ustazah Farhana’s (sisters only) podcast about guided reading of his book – The Beginning of Guidance. Ustazah said that imam had a way of telling you what went wrong in your face, but he also provided solutions and that piqued my interest. ⁣

This book is one of the many selections from Alchemy of Happiness and I find that it’s easier to digest in smaller breakdowns. On envy, he says it isn’t healthy and we shouldn’t be hateful of others blessings. Basically, problem + remedy. ⁣

I struggle a lot with this three things and this is a means to help me through this journey of trying to keep myself in check. ⁣

There are a lot of books sold at @wardahbooks on Al Ghazali’s works and all the titles look pretty amazing.⁣
