It is not easy to change deeply-rooted convictions, whether one reads one book or a hundred; therefore, we cannot expect all people who read this book to change their minds about certain figures in Islamic history who are held by some Muslims in the highest regards, so much so that whenever their names are mentioned, invocations are pronounced to the Almighty to be pleased with them. We do not think that the Almighty is pleased with those who displeased the ones whom He loves the most: His Prophet and Messenger Muhammed (S) and his immediate family, the Ahl al-Bayt (as) whom He purified with a perfect purification as we read in 33:33 of His Book, the Holy Qur'an. It is hoped that this book has at least opened some minds and provided some inquisitive readers, those who sincerely look for the truth, with the impetus to research its contents and to distinguish truth from falsehood. If we have achieved this goal, we have won; if not, at least we tried.
