All praise belongs to Allah, Peace and Salutations upon the Seal of the Prophets, and upon his pure Ahlul Bayt, noble Companions, and those who follow them until the Last Day.
It has indeed brought me immense pleasure to see the manner in which this book has been appreciated and spread far and wide. All praise belongs to Allah for the Favours He has showered upon me.
Mabarrat al Al wa al Ashab has urged me to revise this book and to add a few more beneficial elements relating to the marital relations and names of the Ahlul Bayt and Sahabah, and further strengthen the discourse with supplementary references from the books of biographies and history; thereby sealing the effort in this regard.
It was only becoming of me to avail myself to their request, as there are such personalities at Mabarrah that when they make a request I regard it as an instruction, and consider their suggestions as binding; a mere hint from them is considered by me as an obligation. The reason being that their underlying motivation is reconciliation between the Muslims and contenting hearts; their goal is to spread the spiritual legacy of the Ahlul Bayt and Sahabah radiya Llahu ‘anhum—by which they seek only the Pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala.
Thus I have added whatever I thought to be of further benefit, hoping that this book will become an authoritative source in determining the genealogy of the Ahlul Bayt and Sahabah both.
I ask Allah to accept this humble effort of mine.
Special thanks to all who have assisted in the publication of this work, and aided in trying to make it a means of Pleasure for Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala, Who is verily the Hearer of all supplications.
