    I just started reading this book yesterday and am on chapter 10. I must say that this book is a life changer. Cleared all the concepts of life hereafter as it paints an amazing picture with vivid clarity. Doesn’t talk about any firqa’s and grabs every bit of information about life after death directly from Quran and Hadees. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. May Allah bless brother Abu Yahya for this masterpiece.

  13. Alhaiqa says:

    I have no words for the writer… This book changes my life. I was not like this before. I was not feeling like this before.

  14. Excellent. May Allah Give Jaza-e-Khair to the Writer.
