Author: Abu Bakr Jabir Al-Jazairy
About the Book: A Book on Creed, Manners, Character, Acts of Worship and other Deeds.
About fourteen hundred years ago the Prophet (s.a.w.) kindled a lamp of knowledge, and then in his path, his followers went to every part of the world facing every kind of difficulty to guide the people towards this light. Knowledge is a prophetic inheritance and it is at the very least obligatory upon us to nurture our offspring on its basis. To assist in keeping this lamp lit, it has long been our desire – by the grace of Allah – to translate some of the books written in the Arabic language which are beneficial to every person, bringing common or particular benefits, and translate these useful books into the English language.
Minhaj Al-Muslim, or “The Way of a Muslim” is one of these important books whose author is the great scholar Abu Bakr Jabir Al-Jaza’ri. The author has held the prestige of being a regular lecturer at the Prophet’s Mosque in Al-Madinah. The author wrote this book, Minhaj Al-Muslim, at the request of the people of Wahdah’, a city in Morocco. They desired such a book that included all of the necessary topics like correct belief, etiquette, manners, worship, business and transactions etc. So he compiled this book after the incessant struggle of about two years. May Allah reward him and increase his benefit to the True Religion.
