The Ideal Muslim is a man of the higest moral character. In his relationship with his Rabb, 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 various fields of Human endeavour. He is reassured by the teachings of Islam that he also can reach these noble heights by working to improve his character daily. This comprehensive work by Dr. Al-Hashimi is a valuable contribution to our English readers.
