The Ideal Muslim by Muhammad Ali Al-Hashimi
The Ideal Muslim is a man of the highest 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 the various fields of human endeavor. 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. AI-Hashimi is a valuable contribution to our English readers. He wrote another book on the Ideal Muslimah (female Muslim), and our readers are invited to read both books, because these two books complement each other. May Allah (swta) help us all in making these pure teachings a part of our life.

|This is my first online review ever.. I was surprised that this book didn't have any reviews!.. And because I couldn't find any online reviews for this book, I had to write one; so that my fellow brothers and sisters can get a better idea of this book Insha'Allah.. This book is a must read for all; as it gives us an in-depth outline based on the Qur'aan & Hadith, about what the ideal muslim would be like.. The book goes in detail regarding all aspects of the Muslims life.. The commentary throughout is relevant, neutral and very informative.. All the points are backed up by references from the Qur'an & Hadith.. When this book was gifted to us initially, I couldn't put it down.. I liked it so much, that I've ordered some more today to gift them on!.. Have also ordered The Ideal Muslimah for some sisters as well.. I Found this book to be an exceptional guide and truly inspirational.. Also made me reflect on the things that I may have been doing wrong & what I need to improve on etc.. ..I Would highly recommend The Ideal Muslim to all: particularly to those who may have lost their way a little and want to sort themselves out,, As this book is just what you might need to re-introduce Islam, (the best way of life), back into your lives Insha'Allah.. May Allah help us all to seek knowledge and be The Ideal Muslim!. Ameen....
