This is book two in our 30 Days Series. It is intended for the Muslim individual for self-study, as well as for us as Muslim parents in our essential efforts to educate our children within Islam and our ongoing endeavor of cultivating them upon the extraordinary character and behavior of our beloved Prophet. It is also intended to be an easy to use classroom resource for our Muslim teachers in the every growing numbers of Islamic centers, masjids, and Islamic weekend and full-time schools.
The importance of this subject has been indicated by many. The well-known noble scholar of hadeeth Muhammad Naasiruddeen Al-Albane, may Allah have mercy upon him, said,
"And the reality is, in respect to myself, when I was in my first days of seeking knowledge Allah, the Most Glorified and the Most Exalted, guided me to understanding the importance of purely worshiping Allah alone without any partners or associates, and I came to be aware of the state which the Muslim world was living in of being far away from properly realizing this essential worship of Allah alone. I used to suppose that the problem facing the Muslim world was only their being far from properly understanding the meaning of the statement "La ilaha illa Allah" ( there is none worthy of worship except Allah).
However, after some time it became clear to me that there was also another problem which was directly connected to this first fundamental issue, meaning the problem of the Muslims being far from properly understanding the meaning of the statement of tawheed. This additional problem, being that the majority of the Muslims were not truly reflecting the authentic character and behavior of Islam except to a very small and minimal degree."
