Islamic Manners

By: Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah (rahimahullah)

About the book

Etiquette holds an esteemed place in Islam.

In Surah Taha, Allah Ta’ala instructed Nabi Musa (‘alayhis salam) to adopt the correct etiquette when he arrived at the blessed valley of Tuwa. (surah:20, verse: 12)

So important is its role that some ‘Ulama have said:

“Our entire din is based on manners”

Passing on etiquette as insignificant generally leads to the abandoning of deeds that are sunnah, which leads to the discarding of a wajib (compulsory) act and so on.

Imam ‘Abdullah Ibn Mubarak (rahimahullah) said[1]:

“If I leave out a single etiquette of Islam, I fear that Allah Ta’ala will deprive me of all that He has bestowed me with.”

In this booklet, the honourable Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah (rahimahullah) has listed a few pertinent but often neglected Islamic manners. The manners of Islam are many and are therefore impossible to be encompassed in a brief booklet as this one. However, if the few that are mentioned in here are implemented, one could then endeavor to progress further insha Allah.
