All praise be to Allah, and may His blessings and peace be
upon His messenger. This is a well-written treatise on Sharia. It aims to explain it to the Muslim and non-Muslim public by linking many of its main teachings to their objectives, namely protecting the five essentials: faith, life, lineage, property,, and intellect. The treatise candidly selected the more misunderstood teachings and ingeniously elucidated them. I hope this work will benefit the Muslim and non-Muslim readership.
