Allâhu ta’âlâ pities all the people on the earth, and sends them the useful things He creates. He has taught the entire humanity how they should act and behave so that they may lead a life of comfort and peace in the world and in the Hereafter. Choosing some of the people whose deserved destination in the Hereafter is Hell, He will magnanimously forgive them and bless them with Paradise. He, alone, creates every living being, makes every being maintain its existence every moment, and protects all against fear and horror. Trusting ourselves to the honourable Name of such a being, Allah, we embark on writing this book.
May hamd (praise and gratitude) be to Allâhu ta’âlâ! May infinite thanks be to Him for the blessings and favours He has showered on us! If any person offers hamd to any other person at any place, at any time, in any manner, for any reason, all the hamd and gratitude will have been offered to Allâhu ta’âlâ. For, He, alone, creates all, trains and disciplines all, and makes all sorts of goodness done. He, alone, is the owner of power and might. Unless He reminds, no one will be able to opt to do or even desire to do anything, good and evil alike. After the slave opts for something, nobody can do even a mote of good or cause any harm to any other person, unless He, too, wills it and gives the power and chance to do so.
