Publisher's Summary

In introducing parents and potential parents to the Prophetic example of dealing with children, Dr. Hesham Al-Awadi tackles the challenges and complexity of raising children and the necessity to understand and cater for their needs. Throughout these lectures, recorded at Birkbeck College, University of London, Dr. Al-Awadi, a renowned Seerah historian, draws upon instances from the Prophet's (SAW) life in order to address the emotional, spiritual, moral, sexual, and social dimensions of raising children in today's society.

    "Fantastic Lecture, I love it, I need more..."

    Thank you for such a fantastic lecture, I love it, Dr Hesham is funny yet very knowledgeable. This lecture made me laugh and made me cry. I am going to order all of his lectures.

    The Dr Hesham talks about the children (Companions) around Prophet Mohammad (S)and how they see the Prophet and how Prophet (S) build their character. Its GREAT!!!

    We need more scholars like him. I wish he gets the message. If he does then "Dr Hesham please please continue the good work and I look forward for your books, lectures and CDs".

    May GOD bless you.

    "Awesome book"
    If you could sum up Children around the Prophet in three words, what would they be?

    An awesome book for parents - especially muslims from the asian subcontinent. This work completely subverts the

    "Very pessimistic way of teaching"

    I thought this will help me how the prophet pbuh dealt with kids, but the speaker always comes back and compare to the current time with a very pessimistic view.

    "I listen to this course frequently"

    When I read this course, I found that this audio was really great.

    I made a note and presentation from this course.

    I gave preach to community about this topic.

    Until now (2016), I still listen to this course and make note from this course and teach it to community.

    "brilliant and insightful"

    This is a refreshing view point of the life of Muhammad (saws) through children's eyes. The work presents stories and events that may already be familiar to the listener in such a way that gives a fresh insight to its significance on how these events impacted the lives of the children that surrounded the Muhammad (saws). We are introduced to the companions/contemporaries of Muhammad (saws) such as Anas ibn Malik, Aisha, Fathima, Ali, his grand children Hassan & Hussein and many others are get a glimpse at their own interactions with the Prophet (saws) as children and their reflections on these events.
    Not only does the enthusiasm for the author's passion of the subject come through during the lecture series but he also enthuses and engages the listener by relating the importance of nurturing our with love, kindness, playfulness and energy such as was the example of Muhaammad (saws).

    "Novel approach to the seerah"

    This is an excellent listen in as much as it is a refreshing approach to the lessons from the life of the Prophet SAW. It provides a unique insight into his interactions with children and how we can emulate him in our social lives. The presenter does over-dramatise at times and often goes off-point, stating facts that, while true, area not very helpful or indeed practical. Nevertheless, I commend his initiative at sharing his thoughts, feelings and emotions about the other equally important aspects of Muslim life as learned from the best of creation - a welcome break from the almost monotonous narratives heralded by battle cries. Jazaahullahu khairan.

    "Excellent guidance on upbringing pious children"

    This is an invaluable resource for the parents concerned about how to raise successful children with a sound character and due focus on pleasing the Creator. Helps identify own gaps and learn from the sahabah (as) who learnt directly from the Prophet (pbuh)
