In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
| have already found opportunity to see and read several works of Hadhrat Maulana Samiruddin Qasmi, based in Manchester, England. In particular, | was impressed by his two works: Samarat Al-Meerath and Samiri Calendar.
Samarat al-Aqaid is a recent work by Maulana Samiruddin, which focuses on the basic tenets of Islam, which were compiled in positive and simple manner under 44 headings. He has successfully tried to establish these beliefs from the verses of the Qur’an and the hadiths of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). This book mentions the beliefs of Ahil al-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah along with refuting the beliefs of the deviant sects and all the discussions have been substantiated by suitable evidences from the Qur’an and Hadith.
| hope that this book will prove to be best guide in the delicate issue of faith and beliefs. May Allah (8) grant acceptance to this book and enable the Ummah to benefit from it.
