This book is a translation of Ibn 'Aqil al-Hanbali's (d. 513/1119) essay on Islamic
manners,Fusül al-ādāb wa makārim al-akhlāq al-mashrū'a. It presents a
significant number of commendable etiquettes Muslims are required to observe
for everyday living and dealings. Ibn 'Aqil's essay is considered to be the shortest,
and the earliest extant work from the Hanbali school on Islamic manners. The
language employed in the translation has been kept simple, straightforward, and
modern to make the work accessible to everyone. This bilingual edition,with its
parallel Arabic text,will allow readers to access the original Arabic and hopefully
help with vocabulary building,oracy, and future translations. In Islam,good
manners(ādāb) are required and admired; and it's developed through study and
practice. It is hoped the translation, Ibn Aqil al-Hanbali's Essay on Islamic
Manners becomes a means to refine manners better.
