Translators’ Foreword

We thank God the Almighty for the opportunity granted to us to undertake the preparation of The Bright Lights of Guidance after the successful completion of Al-Khisal (A Numeric Classification of Characteristics); Uyun Akhbar al-Ridha (a.s.); An Anthology of Islamic Poetry Vol.1&2; Imam Ridha’s (a.s.) Pilgrimage Procedures and Prayers; A Divine Perspective on Rights; The Treatise on Rights; Mishkat ul- Anwar Fi Ghurar il-Akhbar and The Islamic Family Structure.

Regarding the references to verses of the Holy Quran, we have exactly cited for coherency using an available translation of the Quran into English by Mr. Abdullah Yusuf Ali (May God reward him). The translation of the Holy Quran that we used is the following:

The Holy Quran,

Abdullah Yusuf Ali (English & Arabic).

We also warmly welcome any suggestions made by the readers that might help us learn about our mistakes and shortcomings, and help us improve our future works.
