I sincerely thank Shaikh Ataa Allah Dervi in helping me compile this book, and providing direct references from his vast collection of Urdu books authored by the Deobandis. Shaikh Ataa Allah Dervi, who is an Imam of a Masjid in Sharajah has himself conducted a deep research on the beliefs and the view of the Deobandis and has authored three books on the subject.



I thank my wife for providing support in the research, development and editing of this book and being a driving force behind the completion of this project.
