In the introduction, the author aptly states, "Good character is desired by everyone."
The entire life of our beloved Nabi [Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wa Sallam] is entrenched and firmly rooted in the teachings of good character. Allah Ta'ala reiterates the position of Nabi [Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wa Sallam] in the most majestic words: "Indeed he is exalted in character."
This book is divided into four sections: the first three relate to character and the fourth section introduces one to the discourse on Tariqat under the guidance of a pious person.
The book enjoys a distinctive feature, which is rarely seen in other publications – each of the characters discussed is explained under the following headings: definition, danger and consequence, prevention and treatment. This simplifies understanding each chapter and makes reading much easier.
