NOTE

The author of the book Itiqd-nma, Mawln Diy ad-dn Khlid al-Baghdd al-Uthmn (b. 1192, A.H./1778 in Shahrazr in the north of Baghdad, d. 1242/1826 in Damascus, quddisa sirruh), was called al-Uthmn because he was a descendant of Uthmn Dhun-nrain, the third caliph (rad-Allhu tal anh). While he was teaching his brother Hadrat Mawln Mahmd Shib the famous Hadth al-Jibrl, the second hadth ash-sherf in Al-ahdth al-arban by the great lim an-Nawaw, Hadrat Shib requested his elder brother to write a commentary to that hadth. Mawln Khlid, to please his brothers lighted heart, accepted the request and explained the hadth ash-sherf in Persian in a book, giving it the title Itiqdnma. Its Turkish translation, Herkese Lzm Olan mn, was translated into English (the present version Belief and Islam), French (Foi et Islam) and German (Glaube und Islam) in 1969, and later, into several other languages, such as Tamil, Yoruba, Hawsa, Malayalam and Danish. May Allhu tal bless the innocent youth with reading this book and learning the correct itiqd (faith) conveyed by the ulam of Ahl as-Sunna!

FOREWORD

Allhu tal has mercy upon all people on the earth. He creates useful things and sends them to everybody. He shows the way to Endless Bliss. He guides to the right path whomever He wishes among those who left the true way and followed the way to kufr (infidelity) and heresy as a result of being deceived by their own nafs (human desires), bad friends, harmful books, and the media. He saves them from eternal calamity. He does not bestow this blessing upon those who are cruel and exceed the limits. He lets them stay on the way of kufr, which they like and desire. In the next world, He will forgive whomever He wants of those guilty Believers who are to go to Hell, and He will admit them to Paradise. He alone creates every living creature, keeps every being in existence every moment and protects all against fear and horror. Trusting ourselves to the honourable name of Allhu tal, that is, expecting help from Him we begin to write this book.
