Take your Belief from the Quran and Sunnah: a booklet containing important questions of religious beliefs, the writer replied it was seeded with evidence from the Quran and Sunnah; to reassure the reader to answer correctly; because the doctrine of unification (Tawheed) is the basis of His Excellency rights in this world and the Hereafter.
Verily, all praise is due to Allaah, we praise Him and we seek His Aid and we ask His Forgiveness and we seek refuge with Allaah from the wickedness of ourselves and the evil of our deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides, there is none can misguide him and whomsoever Allaah sends astray, there is none can guide him. And I testify that none is worthy of worship except Allaah, Alone, without partners and I testify that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.

Because of this it was decided to re-translate the book, in an attempt to produce something truer to the original.
I ask Allaah, Most High that He accept this humble effort from me and makes it of benefit to the new Muslims and the English speaking Muslims and all those who seek truth and enlightenment – Aameen.
By Allaah, I ask that He makes this work of benefit to the Muslims and that He make it purely for His sake. Continue reading
