About The Book
In this notable work, the renowned author provides essential detail in discussing key points dealing with differences that arise between the People of Sunnah, and the manners and etiquette one should acquire when differing occurs. He beautifully illustrates the difference between advising that is encouraged, and shaming that is not permitted - two topics that often become tangled and misunderstood. The author thus explains the characteristics of sincere advice and censure with a depth of clarity that will no doubt bring benefit to all, particularly those involved in active da'wah.
This work also lays down some guiding principles when preparing criticisms and refutations. It makes clear that such ideal precepts apply to People of Sunnah; and as far as the People of Innovation and desires are concerned, then these principles do not apply to them. This is because the former group is recognised for following the truth, being merciful to the creation and desiring for them guidance, reform and all kinds of goodness. They never intend any harm, but rather make falsehood known by stemming ignorance through reasoning and dialogue in clarifying the truth - they enjoin the good and forbid the evil and strive in making the Word of allah uppermost.
Dr. Salih ibn Sa'd al-Suhaymi provides beneficial commentary for the important points covered in this book, bringing greater relevancy to our modern context.
About The Author
Imam Ibn Rajab al Hanbali (736 - 795 AH) was the noble Imaam, the Haafidh, the Critic, Zayn-ud-Deen Abdur-Rahmaan bin Ahmad bin bdir-Rahmaan bin al-Hasan bin Muhammad bin Abil-Barakaat Mas ood As-Salaamee Al-Baghdaadee (due to his place of birth), Al-Hanbalee (due to his madh-hab), Ad-Dimashqee (due to his place of residence and death). His kunyah was Abul-Faraj, and his nickname was Ibn Rajab, which was the nickname of his grandfather who was born in that month (of Rajab).
He was born in Baghdad in 736H and was raised by a knowledgeable family, firmly rooted in knowledge, nobility and righteousness. His father played the greatest role in directing him towards the beneficial knowledge.
Al-Haafidh Ibn Rajab, may Allaah have mercy on him, was deeply attached to the works of Shaikh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taimiyyah, for he would issue legal rulings according to them and would constantly reference his books.
This is since he served as a student under Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah, the most outstanding student of Shaikh-ul-Islaam Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allah have mercy on all of them. But in spite of this, he (rahimahullaah) wasn t a blind follower or a fanatical adherent (to his teacher). Rather, he would review, authenticate, verify and follow the evidences.
Al-Haafidh Ibn Rajab, may Allaah have mercy on him passed to the realm of the Akhirah in Ramadan, 795H in Damascus.
