About This Book

Initially a very detailed book on this topic was written in urdu by Sheik Muhammad Ilyas Faisal of Madina Munawwarah. A concise version was later published.

May Allah Ta'ala accept this humble effort and make it a means of assisting in our salvation on the day of Qiyaamah. Aameen.
