    this is probably the most important release sunnis have made in quite a few years.

    i always say tamhid/preamble is a darsi book. every student should go through this, ideally with a teacher, at least a few times during their aalim course to give a reminder what iman means and how they should view devbandis.

    The previous version of the book had an error - a mistranslation which is now corrected.

    As we mentioned before here, this was our first attempt at producing a book* and it took us some time to learn the process. We can only strive to minimise errors and we cannot guarantee absolute-error free books which will never be revised.

    Please download The Preamble to Faith version 3.0 here.

    ----
    I humbly request brothers to use this version for printing in the future and share only this version which supersedes all previous versions. Please link to Ridawi Press to have the latest updated version.

    if you find an error or have any suggestion, do not hesitate to mail us at feedback@ridawipress.org.

    ----
    *truth about a lie did not start out to be a book but eventually it became one; it is riddled with typos and etc, which shall be revised and edited soon in sha'Allah.

    AbdalQadir time to move along! will check pm's.

    ... where necessary on the rest of that blog. some of it is pure garbage, other places it's just throwing around fud

    i don't have the patience to read the forensics of statements and counter-statements, and counter-counter-statements and counter-counter-counter statements that these guys shamelessly carry on with. i don't know how you guys manage it!

    thanks @Abu hasan.

    THE FOURTH SUBTERFUGE

    They deny it. If a person has not seen books of blasphemers, they flatly deny it and say they have never said such things anywhere. If a knowledgeable person or a scholar shows them in printed books, they turn up their noses disdainfully or look squarely in the eye with perfect shamelessness and say: ‘I shall keep saying the same thing even if you conclusively prove your point.’ Or if the poor person happens to be a common man without knowledge, they will tell him that these statements actually mean something else. [preamble, 67]

    Brother Abu Hasan, have you seen this blog and this post?

    "A Reply to Abu Hasan al-Barelwi from Sunniport"

    Brother Sunnistudent also... please have a look and take care of the historical and factual anomalies where necessary (in case you haven't already).

    This work needs serious proof reading and editing.

    for me, tamhid e iman is an introduction to alahazrat. this short book shows us exactly what alahazrat was about. his every breath was for Allah and His beloved prophet jalla jalaluhu wa sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam.

    so, if anyone doesn't know why alahazrat is so important, alongside hadayiq, i think there is no better book than tamhid e iman / preamble to give to them to read.

    as one brother said, tamhid was a hidden treasure and we pray for aH who has bought this gem to the fore. many sunnis didn't even consider it, writing it off as 'a book for the layman' but it's actually the finest refutation of deobandi heresy that exists. a prime example of simple but to the point.

    for me, it's one of the best books ever written and what makes alahazrat the mujaddid e a'zam of the 14th century.

    the same brother once described to me the prose of alahazrat: 'it is so forceful it is as if a hand comes out the page and grabs you and shakes you.' well, these words of his ring no more truer than in tamhid / preamble. you can actually feel that something is moving you inside - that is how powerful the words are.

    the book is life changing.

    [ jazak Allahu khayran to sidi abu Hasan for making formatting changes and for simplifying language wherever necessary to standardize the work as per the evolving Ridawi Press manual of style ]

    A number of brothers have easily printed the books using home printers.

    Should we make the work 'Truth about a lie' a part of riDawi press.

    the rasm of qur'an has been standardised and a few more corrections have been made.

    as this was the first book published by ridawi press, there were a number of issues and rough corners. we have learned a lot (though a lot more is yet to be learned) and hopefully, in sha Allah, our future releases will have lesser mistakes and will be of better quality. we ask Allah ta'ala to forgive our lapses. wAllahu'l musta'an wa `alayhi't tuklan.

    remember that our books are formatted in A5 and A4 sizes to make it easy for anyone to print our books on their home printers. except for the cover page which we bleed for aesthetic reasons, margins are printer friendly. nevertheless, please do not print pages unless you absolutely need to print - and be mindful of the respect due to names and verses; and of course, the environment.

    wa billahi't tawfiq.

    you can download version 1.5 here. please send your corrections or suggestions to feedback@ridawipress.org. jazakum Allah khayran.

    Hardcopy

    Salaam alaikum. Firstly may Allah Aza Wajal abundantly reward all those involved in compiling this beautiful and truthfull book in english.
    Secondly Is this book available in a hardcopy? I find reading from PDF's a strain on my eyes but i still managed to read it Alhamdulillah.
    But it would be nice to have it on hand so i could access it easily and use it for references. Plus books can be easily distributed. JazakAllah
