About The Book
If Allah wishes to bestow His grace upon someone, He places in their heart the desire to travel the path towards self-purification and gives them the ability to rectify the attributes of their soul. Allah decreed that success in this life and the next be judged according to the degree to which people purify their souls and attain noble character. It is thus the duty of every believer to seek to attain noble character and emulate their Prophet SAW who said: I was only sent to perfect noble character.
In a series of thirty lessons, al-Ḥabīb ʿUmar bin Ḥafīẓ discusses the importance of character refinement and focuses on the traits and qualities that every believer should strive to acquire. He demonstrates how the Prophet SAW and the pious people of his nation embody each character trait and shows the reader how to emulate them.
In our times we have never been more in need of improving our character and rectifying ourselves. This is a book for every seeker, every believer and every family. May it be a source of light for every heart and the catalyst for moral transformation.
About The Author
Habib umar bin hafiz is a descendant of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, through his grandson Imam Hussain, may Allah be pleased with him. He was born in Tarim, Hadramaut in Yemen, and raised in a household that possessed a tradition and lineage of Islamic scholarship and righteousness, his father being the famous martyr, scholar, and caller to Islam, Al-Habib Muhammad bin Salim.
Having memorized the Qurían at a very early age, Habib Umar also memorized the core texts in fiqh, hadith, Arabic Language, and other religious sciences. He studied many sciences including spirituality from his father Al-Habib Muhammad bin Salim, acquiring from him a deep love and concern for daëwah and religious counsel in the way of Allah. He attended numerous circles of knowledge held by traditional scholars, such as Muhammad bin Alawi bin Shihab and al-Shaikh Fadl Baa Fadl. Later, he enrolled at the Ribat of al-Baydaí, where he began to study the traditional sciences under the expert tutelage of Al-Habib Muhammad bin Abd-Allah al-Haddar, as well as under the Shafiëi jurist and scholar Al-Habib Zain bin Sumait. Habib Umar was given permission to teach soon after.
Afterwards, he began to visit many neighbouring towns and communities across Yemen and studied with the mufti of Taëiz, al-Habib Ibrahim bin Aqil bin Yahya, who began to show him much love and attention. He received similar treatment from his Shaikh al-Habib Muhammad al-Haddar, who gave him his daughter's hand in marriage after being impressed by his uprightness and intelligence. Al-Habib Umar then traveled to the Hijaz and studied several books with prominent scholars, including Al-Habib Abdul Qadir bin Ahmad al-Saqqaf, Al-Habib Ahmed Mashur al-Haddad, and Al-Habib Attas al-Habashi.
Wherever Habib Umar has gone, no stone has been left unturned in his attempt to revive the love of Allah and His Messenger, peace and blessing be upon him, in the hearts of people. After returning to Tarim, he established Dar al-Mustafa, an educational institute to which students from across the world have come to study. Habib Umar currently lives in Tarim, where he oversees the development of Dar al-Mustafa and the many schools that have been set up under his management.
