Beliefs and Practices of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa'l Jama'ah

$8.42

Product Description

At times of ignorance, when questions, objections and doubts are being raised in relation to the fundamentals of Islamic Beliefs and Practice, we felt the need to compile a short yet concise handbook covering some aspects of the Beliefs and Practices of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa'l Jamā'ah; in hope that it alleviates any misconceptions regarding the Beliefs and Practices of the Saved Sect.
