Preface

In the Name of Allah The Compassionate, the Merciful.

The Messenger of Allah (S) said regarding the Martyrs of Uhud:
“They are the ones for whom I testify.”

Abu Bakr said:
“Are we not their brothers, O Messenger of Allah (S)? We accepted Islam like they did and participated in Jehad like them?”
The Messenger of Allah (S) replied:
“Yes! But I do not know what you (will) do after me.”
(Al Muwatta Vol. 2, pg. 462, tradition no. 32 of Kitab ul-Jihad)

**************

May Allah shower His blessings upon Muhammad (S)and his Purified Progeny (‘a)
Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (‘a) says:
‘Write (down the traditions) and propagate the knowledge among your brothers. When you die, bequeath these books as your legacy to your sons. Verily, there will come on the people a time of disturbance, when nothing will give them any satisfaction and to nothing will they pay any heed except to their books.’ (Al-Kafi)
In the light of the above tradition, World Islamic Network (WIN) has taken up the task of diffusing Islamic teachings according to the School of Ahlul Bayt (‘a). This booklet is the fifth of the series titled: In The Light Of Quran And Hadith.
Compiled by the great scholar Allama Sayyid Murtaza Askari these booklets deal with some of the important issues of faith. We pray that Allah give us the tawfeeq to continue this noble endeavour.
