About the Book: There are many teaching methods with different means and aids. Correcting mistakes is one of these teaching methods and educationalists call is the “remedial method.” Correcting people’s mistakes is essential if teaching people is the aim. Correcting mistakes is a divine method the Prophet (pbuh) practiced as the Qur’an was sometimes revealed to correct some mistakes of the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet).The Prophet (pbuh) was divinely guided in correcting the mistakes of people. So his methods are the best mankind has ever known. Following the example of the Prophet (pbuh) is therefore the best approach if one is really keen to teach Islamic knowledge and all the other branches of knowledge.The author has in this book compiled many methods of the Prophet (pbuh) for teaching people and correcting their mistakes. This book, as such, is indispensable for everyone who is concerned with education in general, and Islamic knowledge in particular.

This is an amazing little book that contains beautiful episodes from the life of the Prophet Peace be upon him where he corrected people’s mistakes. What I appreciate most about the collection of Ahadeeth is that there are all sorts of situations and reactions covered. So the Prophet – Peace be upon him was not in one kind of mood or manner but his temperament was based on the situation, the facts on ground and who he was with. Really a valuable read for anyone and everyone who wants to improve his or her character. Recommended for teachers and parents, especially.

What I loved most about the book and the author’s notes is that he speaks of using wisdom and not reacting; looking our for your relationship with the person before saying anything; when to say something and when to stay quiet; how to give advice without breaking someone’s heart..So many people turn away from islam because of the harshness of a few…this needs to change within us and around us. A very good read! Highly recommend.
