About The Book
Education is one of the most universally discussed topic, the process of exchanging knowledge and values from one generation to the next.
For Muslims, wherever they may live in the world, there is an added complexity to the education dilemma because of the general diminishment of respect for the sacred and the separation of values from facts.
This book shows the teachings and methods derived from the statements and model of the Prophet Muhammad, God’s peace be upon him.
It is a duty or a responsibility of the Muslim educators to study these essential principles and explore how they may be translated into methodologies that apply in today’s world.
A study of the teaching methods of the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), the effectiveness of which can be gauged by the tremendous impact he had on his companions.
His methods incorporated analogies, similes, anecdotes, diagrams, interactive dialogue, humour, repetition, continuous evaluation, physical contact, gestures, and customisation, amongst others. A fascinating analysis, as the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) was unlettered, and yet could be called the perfect teacher.
This book is unique for it contains an often forgotten dimension from the multi-dimensional life of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). We know him as the final prophet, the final messenger, and a mercy to the worlds, but how many know him as a teacher. In this book the learned author highlights this aspect from the life of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and expounds on the various teaching methods adopted by him in order to convey his message with the greatest impact and impression on his audience.
