Among the innumerable pieces of wisdom and guidance Gems and Jewels has to offer, the wonderful anecdotes, appended from the written works of a wide range of classical scholars, stand out in particular. They provide a unique window into the world of our predecessors and translate their words of wisdom into language accessible to the modern Muslim. Compiler Abdul Malik Mujahid keenly keeps his audience in mind by compiling narratives ranging from humorous tales to parables of the best generations after the Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wa sallam. This feature highlights everyday interactions of the Companions and other notable figures of past and present times with an emphasis on developing virtues by adhering to the morals of Islam. For those looking for bedtime stories that do more than just entertain, teachers hoping to find material to share in the classroom, or those seeking for a way to engage one's audience during a community talk, this book is by far a most exceptional resource. Fictional and non-fictional tales share the same platform as they weave into the hearts and minds of the reader the essence of many Islamic principles and practices. Stories are coupled with lessons from hadeeth and seerah along with descriptions of the times of the rulers of various Islamic states. This book provides the modern day Muslim with a varied perspective on the lives and roles of Muslims in the past that serve as inspiration to move forward. - Reviewed by Sana Khan - Al-Jumuah Vol 21 Issue 3 - Rabi'ul Awwal 1430H.
