Our greatest treasures of knowledge after the Holy Qur’an are the practices of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) and the valuable traditions of the household of the Prophet(peace be upon him and his progeny).
It all started with the Friday weekly interpretation discussion meetings of the Assembly of Religion and Science inside the Imam Husayn Masjid in Tehran. A tradition was selected and everyone was to practice it throughout the week as a lesson. The traditions were so well received that it was decided to publish them.
This small book serves as an example of Islam’s attributes for those who want to know Islam better through a short study. What is even more important in appreciating their worth is the practicing of these programs in our lives. Let us pray to God for success in understanding these traditions and then for being able to act on them.
