بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
As- salaamu ‘alaykum-wa rahmatullahi-wa barakaatuhu to the Muslimeen,
An introduction to this book and its importance is outlined on the “about” page.
The reason why we have decided to put this book up in a blog format is simply for ease in reading. Many people become intimidated by a 400 page book and look at it as if it is one block structure. In doing this many do not even want to get started on reading a particular book and thus miss out on crucial pieces of history or information that they could otherwise have benefited from.
It is our humble attempt here to break up the book into chapters and sections through which the reader can easily navigate through the book. In addition we will upload a few pages of the book every few days so again, the reader feels that the book can be approached in a reader-friendly manner. For those who would like to be updated everytime a new post is published, please leave your email address on the “Why a book in a blog” page in the “comments” section.
The Appendicies of this book compose a large section of this work. We have posted up the complete appendix on a page specifically dedicated for this. This will allow the reader to refer to it any time it is mentioned in the main body of the text.
