It gives me great pleasure to have the privilege of introducing the textbook Islamic Tahdhib and Akhlaq: Theory and Practice. First published in 1983 as Tahdhib and Sirah by Hajiya B. Aisha Lemu, it offers a new approach to the teaching of Islamic Studies, especially for young students. An outstanding merit of the textbook is its emphasis on the spirit of the various teachings of Islam as well as on their moral and social values. Moreover, the author has gainfully used her wealth of knowledge of other subjects in putting the facts across to the students effectively. She has also employed rational arguments in helping the reader to understand the lessons thoroughly. The first part of the book is a textbook designed especially for the classroom. It deals with various tenets on Islamic Tahdhib and Akhlaq, referring to the Qur’an and the Sunnah as the most important sources. Part tow is an enrichment section, which deals with the lives of the Prophets, the Sirah of Prophet Muhammad and the lives of some prominent Sahabah and other pious Muslims.
