(Islamic Decorum)

Past Courses

Level: Beginner

al-Adab al-Mufrad (Imam al-Bukhari)

Distinguished Decorum




Imam al-Bukhari’s highly acclaimed compilation of Prophetic sayings and statements of the Sahabah and Tab’ieen that comprehensively encompasses the essential aspects of ethical and noble behavior and characteristics that all Muslims must strive to acquire in the wholly complete ‘way of life’ known as Islam. al-Adab al-Mufrad is arguably the most illustrious of books on the subject of Islamic Decorum and contains 1322 narrations that cover all facets of a Muslim’s practical daily life. Themes such as the rights of parents, maintaining kinship, kindness to dogs and other animals, the upbringing of children, and compassion to humankind are just some of the affairs dealt with in this great work.

In a time of egocentrism, hedonism, downright licentiousness and indiscriminate killing how important has it become for us to remind ourselves of the qualities of altruism, discipline, modesty and forbearance, just some of the qualities that Imam al-Bukhari has included in this invaluable work that Cordoba Academy is honoured to bring to students worldwide through our weekly Ijazah program.
