The esteemed author, Doctor Nasir ibn `Abd Allah ibn `Ali al-Qaffari, has rendered an unparalleled service with his literary work originally titled Usul Madh-hab al-Shi`ah, which is the most comprehensive study of Shi`ism to have been penned to date. The author examines integral elements of Shi`i doctrine, from its own sources, revealing its true nature. Even aspects which are simply glossed over in most instances has not escaped the eye of the author; leaving no aspect except that it is thoroughly examined and explained.
Another unique feature of the book is the even-tempered approach of the author, free from heated and scathing remarks usually found in sensitive discussions of this nature. The author simply presents the facts, followed thereafter (when required) with refutation from the Qur’an and Sunnah, all in a calm and collected manner with which he guides the reader towards the Path of Salvation.
