From the back cover :

              '' O Faithful Believers! Enter into Islam with complete submission
                 and do not follow in the footsteps of shaytan, undoubtedly, he is
                 for you a manifest enemy
.''
[al-Qur'an 2:208].


Description :

The above verse from the Sacred Qur'an commands the faithful believers to completely submit themselves into Islam. They must embrace every principle and practice of Islam and abide by it throughout their life. They are not permitted to pick and choose whatever they prefer and leave out whatever they dislike. Therefore, it is essential for every Muslim to acquire knowledge of Islam and its demands to know how to live accordingly to its rules and regulations. Without proper understanding and unconditional submission to Islam, Muslims cannot fulfill the requirement of this holy revelation.


This short but precise book, if studied carefully, allows a Muslim to understand and practise the basics of Islam. It lays the foundation upon which Muslims can build and strengthen their faith and puts them on the long journey to ultimate success.
