This an indispensable handbook of rules and regulations governing important aspects of death among Muslim. The purpose is to bring basic information on what has to be done in the light of the teachings of the Holy Prophet when death approaches near, which it takes place and all that follows in this wake.

For Brother Muhammad Shameem who has been an exercise in love and sacrifice. He has set aside an earlier translation he had already completed from the second unrevised edition during his stay abroad. Since his return, he has done it all over, again to bring the subject out in its most authentic form. May Allah bless him for his effort in the way Allah and make it beneficial for Muslims who read English in many parts of the world. Amin.
