A classic work (composed by the illustrious Imam al-Nawawi) on the
etiquette that a Muslim should have with regard to handling, teaching,
studying, respecting and reciting the Quran.
The topics this volume raises include: ritual cleanliness, opportune
times for recitation, the etiquette that students have with their
teachers (and that teachers must have with their students), and a
variety of other issues that every Muslim should know and often ask
Designed and written to explain to men and women how best to benefit
from the Book of Allah.
The blessing of the Qur'an is that whoever recites it as it should be
recited is changed by it, and brought by imperceptible degrees to see
why everything is the way it is…. It is well known to everyone familiar
with the Islamic disciplines that the learning of many things does not
teach wisdom, and that traditional books do not reveal their secrets or
bestow their benefits to those without the key to them. This key is
adab, the 'right way of doing things' rendered in the title as
“etiquette.”… Books, especially sacred ones, give their knowledge to
those of adab.
