Ayatullah Sayed Ali naqi Naqvi (t.s.), an Islamic jurist (Mujtahid) from lucknow, India, who graduated from Najaf, Iraq. He wrote more than 100 books including Tafseer e Quran and Tareekh e Islam and and 1000 booklets in Arabic, Persian and Urdu. His books were published in 12 Indian languages. He is among the most learned Islamic scholars in Indian History.
His first book published in Arabic was in Najaf during his days as a student and was among the first books written against Wahabis. It was entitled 'Kashfun Naqab an Aqaid Abdul Wahhab Najdi'. His second book in Arabic was in defense of the mourning acts for martyrdom of Imam Husain (a.s),entitled 'Aqalatalaashir fi Eqamatalshaaer'. Since the actual book is in Arabic, from which people of India and Pakistan cannot benefit in general, therefore, he revised it with additions in Urdu language. This English edition is the translation of Urdu version.
We are grateful to Syed mansoor Hussain Rizvi for sponsoring the translation of this beneficial book.
