This long overdue translation of a work by Shaykh Abd al-Aziz Pirharwi, may Allah be pleased with him, fulfils the obligation of revealing knowledge when the Companions are cursed by sectarian individuals and people of weak understanding who lack the principles to interpret history.
The hadith states : ‘When tribulations are rampant and my Companions are cursed (by misguided people) the person of knowledge must reveal his knowledge.’
This work refutes aspersions made against Sayyiduna Mu’awiya, may Allah be pleased with him. Some of the pious predecessors said regarding him that he is a veil for the Companions, such that when the veil is removed, people subsequently target other Companions.
This work contains a brief overview of the subject, and I recommend it for students of Sunni doctrine. The author also penned Al-Nibras, a commentray of Imam al-Taftazani’s Sharh al-‘Aqa’id. ”
