            The translator wishes to express his deep appreciation, gratitude and warmest thanks to Mr. Hadi Abughazalah, and Mrs. Kawther M. Hall, who, both, have greatly contributed to the polishing, editing, formatting, revision and moral and mental support while rendering this book into English.

            This rendering, I have to admit, was not possible without their relentless efforts, sincere work to present the book in the best possible fashion. Together we worked as one team whose essential aim was to produce a useful and accurate piece of literature that is of benefit to those who are interested in learning about the view point of Islam on this subject.

            I am truly indebted to both of them. I can neither thank them enough, nor reward them for what they have done, but I pray Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala), to bless them for their efforts and reward them according to His Generosity.
