A book by Dr. Muhammad Abdul Bari was launched at the House of Lords today. ‘A Guide to Parenting in Islam: Addressing Adolescence’ is the latest instalment by Dr. Abdul Bari, on a topic that is most pertinent to him as a community leader and activist.
Th book launch was generously hosted by Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham, who recounted his own experiences of his adolescence and the greater need for parenting issues to be taken up by the Muslim community.
Many distinguished guests also spoke on matters of parenting and added their commemorations to the occasions and also learned of Dr. Abdul Bari’s latest book, which will be published as an e-book online.
Professor John Adair, an internationally acclaimed leadership theorist and author of forty books on business, military and other leadership comments on the book, by saying: “The book is very readable and once I had started I couldn’t put it down! It is full of good practical common sense and useful tips, against the background of the received wisdom of the Islamic tradition. One feels great compassion for those who have to live this life without the foundation of being born into and raised in loving family, so I hope that the message of your book will be widely influential.”
