As a scholar, Shaykh Al-Amin Mazrui attempted to be a bridge between Islam and modernity. Shaykh Al-Amin’s choice of these favored sayings of the Prophet ﷺ in “The Content of Character” — translated and introduced here by Hamza Yusuf — was influenced by his effort to be a bridge-builder, especially between the values of tradition and the norms of modernity, between the wisdom of religion and the compassion of humanity.
Contains original Arabic text of hadiths as well.
