A Concise Manual for the New Muslim
O Muslim, verily ALLAH has bestowed a great blessing upon you by guiding you to Islam. ALLAH says:
This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. (Al-Maidah 5:3).
My beloved brother / sister, thank ALLAH tremendously and cherish this precious gift. Never give it up, for ALLAH says:
Truly, the (only) religion with ALLAH is Islam (Aali Imraan 3:19).
And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. (Aali Imraan 3:85).
Dear believer, obey ALLAH and His messenger. ALLAH says:
Say ( O Muhammad صلی الله علیه وآلهِ وسلم ) : Obey ALLAH and the Messenger ( Muhammad صلی الله علیه وآلهِ وسلم ). But if they turn away, then ALLAH does not like the disbelievers. (Aali Imraan 3:32).
May ALLAH reward you, follow the Sunnah of ALLAH's Messenger and cling to the way of his companions. ALLAH's says:
And whoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger ( Muhammad صلی الله علیه وآلهِ وسلم ) after the right path has been shown clearly shown to him, and follows other than the believers way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in Hell what an evil destination. (An-Nisa 4:115).
We ask ALLAH to bless Sheikh Abdul Azeez al Buree (hafithahullah) and to make this book a benefit to all those who read it. O Muslim reader, may ALLAH bless you and guide you to that which is correct and make you firm upon it.
