Forty Hadiths on Good Moral Values With Short Commentaries by retired Captain Yahya M.A Ondigo

The statements and actions of our Prophet Muhammad (s) contain much that we need: rules and advice, reminders, examples, warnings and encouragement. The collection of hadiths in Forty Hadiths on Good Moral

Values by Yahya Ondigo contains some of the Prophet?s statements on positive ethics and attributes that all people-Muslims and non-Muslims-should strive to adopt in the way we deal with others; we need to work to incorporate these morals and principles into our daily habits.

The author has commented on each hadith, presenting the issue in a way designed to help readers implement what they have learned.

He writes:

Demonstrating earnest leniency, tolerance and benevolence is the best way for the beauty of Islam to be seen in our own lives with our non-Muslim family members, neighbours, colleagues, workmates, schoolmates and all our fellow human beings that we interact with. Benevolence in whatever actions we undertake is the best form of da?wah that we can give to another person. This is because our actions speak louder than our words: no matter how much we try to convince people that Muslims are generous, peaceful, tolerant, kind, amicable, charitable, and so on, words alone are not convincing enough. If our moral values and compassion are not reflected in our actions, the words become meaningless.

About the author

Born into a strict Christian household in Kenya, Yahya Ondigo was always a man of faith. When his questions about Christian faith were left inadequately answered, Ondigo?s search for the truth led him towards Islam. Since then, he has pursued Islamic Studies, become a caller to Islam, and authored several books on Islamic topics, all under publication with IIPH, including My Journey from Christianity to Islam, Muslim-Christian Interactions, and Forty Hadiths on Poisonous Social Habits, which is the companion piece to this present book.
