Description from the publisher:
Hakim Muhammad Akhtar with his philosophical bent of mind and an urge to imbibe religious values in minds continues to contribute his bit, now through sermons, now through writing. In this book, he has compiled ahadith on softening of the hearts. He has selected the ahadith from Mishkat-ul-Masabih, one hundred and eighty five in all. To them he has added scholarly explanation.
Clearly the sayings and doings of the prophet are an excellent guide for the Muslims. They tell us how to conduct ourselves in our everyday life and how to behave with each other.
This chapter of Mishkat deals with the shortcomings of love for the wordly life which is the base and root of all sins and moral fantasies. While explaining the important points of Kitab ar-Raqaa'iq, the author has consulted Mazaahir e Haq (One of the most famous explanatory works of Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh.)
This book is a must for every Muslim home. It must be studied and children must be encouraged to read and emulate its teachings.
