The Purification Of Tawhid From The Filth Of Deviation - English Translation Of 'Tathir al-I'tiqād 'an-Adrān al-Ilhād'
In recent times, a deviation has appeared amongst some Muslim communities whereby they show veneration, to an extreme, of Muslims saints and righteous personages: they erect mausoleums on their graves, they go to them in times of need and adversity, they supplicate to them and they hold beliefs concerning them that border on the superstitious.
Distressed at this gross deviation, Imam Muhammad Ibn Ismā'il al-Sana'ānī penned this treatise Tathir al-I'tiqād 'an-Adrān al-Ilhād, expounding on the belief of Ahl-us-Sunnah in its pristine purity. The issues he tackled were the concept of worship and grave-worship, supplication to Allah, relying on Allah, and resorting to Him at times of need.
The translator Abu Rumaysah has added explanatory notes from the commentaries of three major scholars, Isma’il al-Ansari, Abdul’l-Muhsin al-‘Abbad and ‘Abdu’l ‘Aziz al-Rajihi, which further clarify, and in some places, correct, what the author writes.
