Children Around The Prophet - How Muhammad (S) Raised The Young Companions
You know Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) as a messenger, military general, political leader, husband, and friend. Now embark on this unique journey as you discover the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) as a role model and a mentor. This book explores the life of the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) from the perspective of some of his special followers – the children.
This book by Dr. Hesham Al-Awadi aims to introduce a dimension to the Seerah or biography of the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) which has rarely been looked at in past narratives, namely how the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) interacted with children. It introduces readers to a wide range of methods the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) employed when dealing with children.
The book emphasizes the complexity of raising children and catering to their needs. It develops analytical skills through the examples the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) set and encourages readers to think about the challenges involved when the same time-tested methods are employed in contemporary contexts.
You will learn how the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) nurtured and trained the children around him by:
• Building emotional security and trust
• Helping children connect to Islamic beliefs such as Allah, the Hereafter and the Quran
• Building positive associations with the worship of Allah
• Developing good morals and admirable behavior
• Teaching them how to manage sexual desires as they get older
• Encouraging them to be social and active members of their community.
With practical tips and touching narratives, Dr. Hesham Al-Awadi guides the reader through the methods the Prophet used to tackle the complex challenges children face.
Finally, the book aims to familiarize the reader with some of the children that overlapped with the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam), as part of wider endeavour to educate the reader on the shapers of early Islamic history.
