Description

About the Book

A subject cherished by Muslims all over the world yet Misconstrued, Misargued, Disarrayed specially in - the English language writings written for the general reader interested in an authentically correct presentation of the second source of Islamic Law and love, ‘The Authority of Sunnah’ will take you into the much published year 2000, and beyond basic, simple informative educative, pleasing, authentic and every reassuring; answering doubts, removing cobwebs woven by those oriented by and to Orientalist.

Foreword

In October 1989, I was invited to present a paper on the “Authority of the Sunnah” in an international conference held in Chicago by an international Islamic organisation.

Since long, I felt the need of a brief English booklet containing basic information on “The Sunnah of the Holy Prophet it’s general features, the nature of it’s authority and the standard of it’s authenticity.

I took the opportunity to fulfil this need and wrote on the subject in a little more detail than was required in a conference of this type.

The present work is the result of the above endeavour. This book is meant for the general reader who wants to know what the “Sunnah of the Holy Prophet” is, how does it have a binding authority over all the Muslims for all times to come, what status has the Holy Quran given to it and what measures has the Ummab adopted to preserve it for the coming generations.

I hope that this humble effort will provide brief, yet clear, answers to questions of similar nature and will help understanding the true status of the ‘Sunnah’ as a source of Islamic Law and as a source of guidance for all Muslims in their practical lives. It will also assist, I hope, in removing certain doubts inculcated by few contemporary writers in respect of the authority of the Sunnah.

May Almighty Allah approve of this humble effort, adorne it with His pleasure and make it beneficial to the readers.
