Preface to Third Volume
Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all the
worlds, the All-Merciful, the Very Merciful, the Master
of the Day of Requital. All praise is to Allah Who has
guided us to this (i.e., Jannah). We would not have been
able to find the way, had Allah not guided us. Glorious
is the One in Whose Hand is the Kingdom (of the whole
universe), and He is powerful over every thing, the One
Who created death and life, so that He may test you as to
which of you is better in his deeds. He is Allah, the
Mighty, the All-Knowing, the One Who forgives sins
and accepts repentance, the One Who is severe in punishment,
the One Who is the source of all power. There
is no god but He. He is the One Who has sent His Messenger
with Guidance and the religion of truth, so that
He makes it prevail over all religions. Praise belongs to
Allah Who has sent down the Book (i.e., Qur’an) to His
servant, and allowed no crookedness in it.
It is sheer grace of Allah that the first two volumes
of Ra’fatul Baari received high praise and appre-
ciation from far and wide with persistent insistence, encouragement
and blessings for completion of the project.
Again, with absolute reliance on Allah, the work
on third volume was started and accomplished by the
grace of Allah. I hope readers will find it useful and will
as usual pray to Allah for its acceptance and completion
of the project.
I am, as usual, highly thankful to dear Sameem
Husain without whose hard work in compiling, computerizing
and proofreading this book. It would not have
been possible. May Allah reward him with best rewards.
