The Prophet’s Ramadhaan: How the Prophet observed the Month of Ramadhaan by Mufti Muhammad Khan Qaadri

* Picture from Amazon*

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Islamic

Rating: 8 out of 10

Plot: This is a book that goes through what the Prophet (s.a.w.) would do in Ramadan.  It covers everything from how to spot the month, how to start and stop the fast each day, and how to celebrate the end of the month.  This book is full of hadith, which are sayings of the Prophet (s.a.w.) as evidence to back up what the author was saying.

Opinion: Overall, I thought this was a pretty good book.  The translators did a pretty good job so there wasn’t a lot of grammar errors that are so common to translated Islamic books.  This book contained a lot that I already knew, but there was still a lot that I learned from it.  The language was simple enough for a new Muslim to understand, and there’s so much information that Muslims of different levels of knowledge can benefit from it.  The only problem I had is this author sometimes put multiple hadith in a row that were basically of the same wording but narrated from different people.  I understand the point is to show that multiple people are testifying to this saying/action, but it’s tough to read the same sentence four or five times in a row, and that’s the main reason why it took as long as it did for me to get through this book.
