The Ideal Muslim is a man of the highest moral character. In his relationship with Allah, himself, family, parents, relatives, friends, and the community at large, he has a most excellent example in the Prophet of Islam (PBUH). His idealism is further strengthened by the characters of the first generations of Muslims who excelled in all the various fields of human endeavor. He is reassured by the teachings of Islam that he also can reach these noble heights by working to improve his character daily. In this title, the author gives a clear overview of the practical aspects of the Islamic lifestyle, as exemplified by the Prophet (PBUH) and his Companions (pbuh). Moving from the innermost aspect of the individual’s spiritual life to his dealings with all those around him, one can see how the Muslim is expected to interact with all others in his life.
The Ideal Muslim is about the true Islamic personality of the Muslim as defined in the Qur’an and Sunnah. Written by Dr. Muhammad Ali Al-Hashimi (also the author of the Ideal Muslimah), this book defines the Ideal Muslim as a man of the highest moral character. This book will play an important role in directing the Muslim community towards the path of guidance and leadership, thus becoming a beacon for all mankind. Islam does not concentrate on filling men’s minds with philosophical ideas, on excessive dream-like spirituality, or on physical training, and perfection, or on self-serving materialistic philosophies such as exist nowadays in both East and West. Islam drew up a balanced, integrated program for man’s development, taking into account his physical, intellectual, and spiritual needs, based on the sound principle that man is formed of body, mind, and soul. The Muslim personality is balanced.
