The Holy Quran, the Word of God Almighty, proclaims, as clearly as the sun shines in the sky, that the object of human existence is the cultivation of righteousness. Keeping this ideal in mind I have always endeavoured to make this the theme of my writings despite the fact that I am fully conscious of my own deficiencies.
My prayer is that this humble work will inspire the earnest reader upwards to higher states of righteousness and excelencies of conduct. It will prove of little or no value to the person who merely skips over a few pages, then lays the book down never to open it again. The spirit of rejuvenation which the book is intended to generate in the mind and soul of the reader will become manifest only if every line is absorbed as in this approach lies the secret of its fruitation.
Should the reader gain even half as much pleasure and benefit as I have gained from writing this book, then both of us will have been well rewarded.
