It is to be made clear that for the humanbeings, in this world, the greatest bounty of Almighty Allah is belief (Eimaan) and surrender (Islam) because due to it there is in this world prosperity, grace and benefit including welfare. In the hereafter also forgiveness and salvation culminating into happiness and eternal comfort. In other words there is welfare in this world and in the hereafter attached to Belief (Imaan) and Surrender (Islam).
Hence it is compulsory for each matured and balanced man and woman to know the doctrine of Imaan and Islam, get acquainted with the principles and then put them into practice and also to perform the obligatory duties to invite divine pleasure.
It is to be remembered that unless and untill the faith and belief is not correct, prayers (salat), fasting (roza), haj, zakaat, sadqaat (donations) etc., and the total deeds will be a waste because without embellishment of
the faith any deeds or prayers will not be accepted and without deeds and prayers the fruits of the Belief (Eimaan) cannot be reaped.
Because the treasure of Belief (Eimaan) is hidden in the right thinkings. Hence this part is started with the caption of “Belief” (Aqaa’id) and the important points are explained in a very simple and clear language.
