Epilogue

This is the concluding book of the series entitled, The Role of the Ahl al-Bayt (‘a) in Building a Virtuous Community.

I pray to Almighty Allah to accept this meager effort out of His vast generosity, to forgive all my faults and failings, and accept it as purely dedicated to Him out of His favor, grace, and magnanimity.

I also pray to Him to make this work acceptable to my masters, the Household of Divine infallibility and immaculacy—the Holy Prophet and the immaculate and pure Members of his Household, especially the master and leader of our time, Imam al-Mahdi (peace be upon them all).

My success in my task can only come from Allah. In Him I trust and unto Him I look. All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. All blessings be upon our master, Muhammad, and upon his immaculate and pure Household.

Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error.
Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden like that
which You did lay on those before us.
Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater
than we have strength to bear.
Blot out our sins and grant us forgiveness.
Have mercy on us. You are our Protector.
Help us against those who stand against faith.
