This book encourages you to reflect especially for a student of Islam (as I regard my self) its a very quenching. you must have wisdom then you'll understand why the references that are used, are used. I was suprised that the book was a hardback and for the price that it is to purchase at, (7.99) its cheap. the book is strongly binded and nice on the eyes when reading. For the Ahle Sunnah Wa'Al Jamaa' its a treasure and very much needed Knowledge to safe guard Ones ownself and family and friends Imaan for the present fitna times and future fitna times to come.
May ALLAH bless all those at Ihya Society for there publications keep it up.
p.s its unfortunate that there are less readers of quality books like this particular title as supposed to social media attention seeking comments/rants. May ALLAH encourage us to read, to seek the right knowledge wisdom and understanding. Ameen.
