About The Book
No one can deny the importance of teaching the sound Islamic belief and Noble Qur'an to children during the early stages of their upbringing.
It is a fatal mistake that a person may pass to the stage of adulthood and grow old while he learned nothing about Islamic belief and the Noble Qur'an.
Therefore, a child should take advantage of his childhood and learn the sound Islamic belief and memorise the Qur'an.
Thus, this small book contains a presentation of the sound Islamic belief as well as chapters about jurisprudence issues so as to teach them to the children. It also aims to inculcate such belief in their hearts from the time they are young. Actually, It is easy for children to understand
Shaykh Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghoddah says about the book that it is to be thought to the young and the old due to its conciseness and eloquence. Also, it is free from philosophy which has entered into islamic belief Islamic Monotheism on the pretext of faith where converted into scientific treatises marred by doubtful unclear element and archaic refutation that where hardly beneficial for those who are not specialised in studying Islamic belief.
