Dr Bilal Philips says in his Foreword

'Shaykh Riaz Ansary, a graduate from the College of Shari'ah, Islamic University of Madinah, who has undertaken the arduous task of thoroughly revising and preparing the manuscript for publication. He not only edited my translations and verified the hadiths according to the standards of my other books, but he also added a glossary and an index of hadeeths. He also added a section on al-Qurtubi's tafsir, books on Asbab an-Nuzul and asikh wa Mansookh, a section on scientific miracles, a refutation of some of the claimed contradictions in the Qur'an.'  - (From the Foreword)
