There is a connection of the illustrious Sahaba and the Ummah on the excellence of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him, that he is the most honourable person amongst creation after the station and status of the Beloved Prophet of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Yet there are some misguided people and cults that oppose this reality and give others preference above him. It is indeed unfortunate that an agreed upon consensus is challenged by such sinister people. Such antagonists are known as the tafdili sect.


In this book 'Az-Zulal al-Anqa min Bahr Sabaqat al-Atqa', AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, may Allah be pleased with him, refutes the incorrect beliefs of the tafdili (tafzili) sect and expounds upon the correct Islamic belief concerning the elevated status of Sayyiduna Amir al-Muminin Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him. He fortifies his arguments with 60 verses of the Holy Qur'an, 80 Ahadith as-Sharif, 6 examples, 14 poetic stanzas, 234 substantive proofs from authentic books from the honourable senior Imams and Ulama of Islam.
