DETAILED DESCRIPTION

ABOUT THE BOOK:
A translation and commentary on a classical Arabic poem about raising children. The advice it contains draws on traditional sources, the experience of the translator, and the reflections of people from various walks of life. The author of the poem Riyāatul ibyān, is the famed 16th Century jurist, Imām al-Ramlī. This Nazam is a rhyming version of one of the books of Imam al-Ghazali which appears in his collection entitled Ihya 'Ulum al-Din. Within the chapters of the Ihya, there is a chapter titled Riyad al-Nafs, Disciplining the Self, within that chapter there is a section titled Riyad al-Sibyan. Imam al-Ramli versified that section. This nazam or Manzumah has had various commentaries in the past, however this English rendition is based on the commentary of  the Yemeni scholar 'Abdullah Ba Sawdan (d. 1266 H. / 1850 CE).

 

Its translator, Abdul Aziz Ahmed, is an experienced teacher who studied both classical Islamic texts with renowned scholars, and modern psychology and pedagogy. The book discusses child development from the point of choosing a spouse to the child’s attaining maturity. It contains explanations of key concepts such as adab, etiquette, aql, intellect and role models. There are practical examples and reflections on real situations, as well as explanations of prophetic traditions.

Each chapter contains discussion points and quotes from various contributors. The topics include discipline, gender roles, the influence of television and mass advertising, the importance of finding time to play and relax, and ways of developing the intellect.
