The original title of the book, Booklet for Way to Paradise, which we are currently presenting, is Miftâh-ul-Janna, which means The Key of the Gate to Paradise. It was written by Muhammad bin Qutb-ud-dîn Iznikî ‘rahima-hullâhu ta’âlâ’, who passed away in Edirne in the hegiral lunar year 885 [1480 A.D.].
Brief passages from the reputed books of ahl as-sunnat scholars are quoted for refuting corrupt Wahhabi and la-madhhabiyya beliefs.
Infinite thanks be to Allâhu ta’âlâ! Peace and blessings be on His most beloved Prophet, Muhammad (’alaihi ’s-salâm)! Auspicious prayers be for the pure Ahl al-Bait and for each of the just, faithful Companions, as-Sahâbat al-kirâm (radî-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhum ajma’în), of that exalted Prophet!
Allâhu ta’âlâ is Rabb al-’âlamîn. He created every kind of the living things and also the non-living orderly, well-calculated and beneficial. With His attributes Khâliq, Bârî, Musawwir, Badî’ and Hakîm, He created all beings in perfect order and very beautiful. He set relations between them so that they would be orderly and beautiful. He made them reasons, means, and causes for one another so that they would be existent and go on existing. We give names, such as natural events, physical or chemical laws, astronomical formulae and physiological processes to these relations and their being causes of one another. Science is the research into the design, calculations, interactions and relations between the beings created by Allâhu ta’âlâ, and thereafter making use of them.
We pray for the help of Allâhu ta’âlâ so that we may have it reach our dear readers.Preview
