A study of the teaching methods of the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), the effectiveness of which can be gauged by the tremendous impact he had on his companions.
His methods incorporated analogies, similes, anecdotes, diagrams, interactive dialogue, humour, repetition, continuous evaluation, physical contact, gestures, and customisation, amongst others. A fascinating analysis, as the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) was unlettered, and yet could be called the perfect teacher.
This book is unique for it contains an often forgotten dimension from the multi-dimensional life of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). We know him as the final prophet, the final messenger, and a mercy to the worlds, but how many know him as a teacher. In this book the learned author highlights this aspect from the life of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and expounds on the various teaching methods adopted by him in order to convey his message with the greatest impact and impression on his audience. Full references are provided for all Qur’anic texts and Ahadith.
An outstanding compilation by the great jurist and Hadith scholar Sheikh Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghuddah. This work testifies to his in-depth research and superior scholarship.
