Islamic Rules for Family
It is established that the common ailments of human societies, personal as well as social, find their remedy in monotheism and justice. Therefore, emphasis on these two moral principles is essential. Muslim children must develop a clear understanding of the concept of the oneness of Allah, mainly through the performance of the devotional acts of worship, to Him, and through developing a sense of justice in all personal and social dealings.
Maulana Habibullah Mukhtaar has succinctly outlined these concepts in this book. Through his deep understanding of Islam, and his eminent conviction and personal adherence to its principles, he introduces this book to the readers, with all practical instructions. Translated to English from the Urdu by Rafiq bin Abd al-Rahman.
