Description from the publisher:
This book is intended for new Muslims who have just accepted Islam and non-Muslims interested in Islam or almost about to accept Islam. It is also useful for Muslims wishing to revise or learn the basics of Islam in a concise manner and parents wishing to give their children a good foundation in the basics. This book serves all of these purposes at once and has been written specifically with all of this in mind. Utterance of the two testifications (shahadatan) regarding monotheism (taw?i?) and messengership (risalah) enter a person into Islam. This declaration has a meaning (ma?na); requirements (muqta?a); conditions (shuru?) and nullifiers (nawaqi?) which must be understood well. After a person enters Islam; he or she establishes the remaining pillars of Islam whilst seeking knowledge to increase inward Iman; which is faith. Thereafter; he or she strives for I?san which is excellence; and for the perfection of character.
