Extract from the Foreword :
” In this edition we have represented some of the great Imam’s work on a variety of Islamic issues – 14 thesis that Imam Ahl al-Sunnah, A’la’Hadrat Imam Ahmad Rida al-Qadiri, alayhi ar-Rahman, has written. The way the thesis have been written, the way
the arguments are pursued, the manner in which the proofs are given. all point to the immense knowledge of this great Mujaddid of Islam and it shows us what a real Scholar he was. Only a first-class mind, absolutely soaked in the most profound knowledge of Qur’an, Hadith and Fiqah, could produce a work such as this. It also shows that the arguments presented by the enemies, who think that they can reform and change the Din of Islam, have no backbone in their arguments! ” —Abd al-Hadi al-Qadiri.
‘A’la Hadrat’ as-Shah as-Shaykh Imam Ahmad Raza (Rida) Khan, al-Qadiri, Fadil al-Barelwi, ‘alayhi ar-Rahman w’al-Ridwan, was a great Muslim scholar and Saint, who lived in India between 1856 & 1921. He was popularly known as “A’la Hadrat” in the Islamic world.

dignity and was conferred the title of “Imam-e-Ahl
al-Sunnat” by eminent Ulema (scholars).
