I wish I could give this 10 stars. I keep recommending this book to family and friends. Also searching for more like it!
So so good.
It's not as I wanted it to be...
While the content and organization seems disorganized or following an unknown pattern at times, I still thoroughly enjoyed the new perspective on the analysis of the Prophet' (pbuh) character. Smith attempts and mostly succeeds in using modern-day psychology and theory to extract and interpret lessons of prophetic emotional intelligence. My favorite segments were those with stories from the seerah, even with other prophets (peace be upon them all), as well as anecdotal examples from realities of life today.
This book is important for all those about to start a family or are currently in the process of raising one. Even if read sporadically, it remains a powerful and inshallah a motivation to *see* what you may not have sensed before.
May Allah bless the author and allow him to expand on this topic in a more detailed and structured form of expression.
A book I will need to visit and revisit again. At the heart of it is a call to reassess how we give meaning to intelligence and the vital role and purpose of our intellect. Current markers of intelligence often revolve around pursuits of knowledge — PhDs, publications, the next discovery or invention— but rarely will we label a gracious person loved and respected by their community, or a person willing to fight for what is morally upright as someone ‘intelligent’. Isn’t that odd? In fact, these two other aspects of intelligence, emotional and moral, are the vehicles that will allow the knowledge we acquire to be succesfully implemented, inspiring deep change in our communities for a higher purpose or ‘the greater good’.
This book primarily explores the above by examining the traits of one of the greatest human beings ever to walk on the Earth - Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Whether or not you believe in him, no doubt there is something exemplary about an orphaned, unlettered man who was able to bring about deep, lasting change to one of the most barbarous societies of that time. The excerpts of his life pertinent to elucidating the concepts of moral and emotional intelligence are further complemented by examples from sociology, philosophy, history, as well as the Bible and the author’s own personal reflections. The book finishes off with an example of the proficient use of these intelligences in action and how we can apply that to our daily life.
It’s an made me reflect on my role as a doctor, the careful balance of applying knowledge to patients with complex emotional needs and wishes, all while trying to adhere to the four ethical principles as the moral compass of what is ‘right’. How else can we make the lives of our patients better? How else can we empower them? At the same time, how can we give medical students and doctors the tools to face the numerous emotional and moral challenges present in clinical practice so that they can be confident in the decisions they make? I am reminded some advice my consultant gave me: it’s better to be a doctor with some lapses in knowledge but is genuinely nice and caring, than a doctor with all the knowledge in the world but can’t be nice at all.
