Shaikh Mohammad Ibn Faqih
Total running time:
By Muhammad Ibn Faqih. The Prophet sallallahu Ďalaihi wa sallam mentioned he was only sent to perfect the manners. In Islam, behavior is not just what society dictates, but is shaped by belief and a divine system of morality. In this lecture series, Muhammad Faqih goes through a thorough look at the Islamic system of behavior. He discusses a personís behavior with Allah, then with the Prophet sallallahu Ďalaihi wa sallam, his/her community, and even his/her own self. Personality, self-identity, anger management, and levels of love are addressed. A great lecture for anyone looking for self-improvement and wishing to obtain the right attitude in life.
