Al-Wala wal-Bara 01 islamic pdf book free download

In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
Praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and may the blessings and
peace of Allah be on our Prophet Muhammad and on his family and on all his
companions.
The subject matter of this work is of paramount importance and utmost
interest for two major reasons:
Firstly, it is concerned with one of Islamʹs main foundations, namely the
qualities of al‐walaʹ waʹ1‐baraʹ, which are two major prerequisites of true faith:
al‐walaʹ is a manifestation of sincere love for Allah, His prophets and the
believers; al‐baraʹ, on the other hand, is an expression of enmity and hatred
towards falsehood and its adherents. Both are evidence of iman.
Secondly, it has been written at a very crucial time: everything has become
so mixed up that some Muslims are no longer aware of those qualities which
distinguish the believers from the non‐believers; their faith has become so weak
that they have adopted patterns of behaviour that are absolutely repugnant to a
sincere believer; they have taken the disbelievers as their friends, while
displaying enmity towards many of the believers by disparaging their character
and degrading them.
The importance of writing such a book as this in the present time is
therefore apparent.
The author has investigated the various aspects of al‐walaʹ waʹ1‐baraʹ,
quoting, along with explanatory notes and comments, many scholarsʹ statements
and arguments. He has also backed up his arguments with numerous verses
from the Qurʹan, authentic traditions from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and
grant him peace and many of the sayings of his companions and the early pious
Muslim scholars, may Allah be pleased with all of them. The author has also
verified the reliability of these sources, recording the numbers of the Qurʹanic
verses and the chapters in which they are to be found, and the books in which
the prophetic traditions and sayings are contained, as well as the degree of their
authenticity.
The authorʹs grasp of his subject, his immense erudition and the
thoroughness of his research, are all clearly apparent in this work.
I pray that this book will benefit the Muslims. I also pray that Allah the
Almighty will provide our Ummah with writers who will follow in the footsteps
of its author. There is great hope that the younger generation of Muslims will be
brought up to honour the deen of Islam and to revive those parts of it that have
been obliterated, for my Lord and your Lord is the Hearer and Answerer of our
prayers.
