The nature of the books content renders it applicable to pretty much everyone. It will serve as a timely reminder to those who are preoccupied with worldly matters that are a hindrance to spiritual and emotional development.
A must read for Muslims and Non-Muslims alike.
The context of this book is simple and also has reasoning behind everything that is said, it has helped make me a better better person and alot more cautious in the things I do and say. I have realised how precious life is and how close we are to death and should sort our lives out as soon as possible.
I do not regret buying this book at all, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone as I don't think there is a single person who will not benefit from this book.
The book combines Imam al-Mawlud's timeless beautifully terse explanations of spiritual diseases and their cures with Hamza Yusuf's wide ranging knowledge of Islamic tradition and how the modern world works to create something that is strikingly modern and relevant. The insights into the human condition and psychology are amazing.
A real eye-opener which cannot fail to make you examine your faults and make you a better person. The best self-help book you'll ever buy!
I bought it after breaking up with my girlfriend and having been to an art of life class - the landmark forum.
This resonated very powerfully with me. I would definitely put some of the advice in practice in my daily life.
I am not a Muslim- however, I think this book can benefit just about anyone.
A must for all those who want to better themselves as a person. THIS BOOK IS A MUST FOR ALL. REGARDLESS OF WHAT BELIEFE YOU COME FROM; HINDU, SIKH, ISLAM, JEWISH, ATHIEST, AGNOSTIC ETC, A BOOK FOR YOU ALL!
"A man saw the Prophet kiss a baby and asked him, "Do you kiss your children?" The Prophet said "Indeed I do." Then man then said, "I have ten children, I never kissed any of them," which was considered an aspect of the pride of being a tough Arab. To that the Prophet replied, "There is nothing in my religion for a man whose heart is void of mercy" (Except from the book)
