Review : '' This book was originally written in the Arabic Language about the Islamic way of worship. Its Arabic text is extremely lucid and pleasing to read. The issues are explained in such a way that even the most complicated matters seep straight into one’s heart. Each issue discussed has been supported adequately with references from authentic works. It is certainly a source of pride and honour to have Mr. Pirzada amongst us. May Allah (most high) make his educational institution, Jamia Al-Karam, into such a centre of excellence that it guides people until the Day of Judgment.
