AcknowlegementsMy Father for his unstinting moral and material support in this endeavour, and without whose encouraging guidance it is doubtful whether I would have continued my pursuit of knowledge.
My Mother for her simple words that instilled me with the enthusiasm required for working on this endeavour. She wrote me an email saying: "I am proud that you have gathered so much information without the help of any resource person. Beta, be strong first and improve your knowledge. It will help you to face any tides in life!!"
My Sister for her "BRAVO BHAI BRAVO!!" It really did cheer me up!
Sheikh Mustafa Abdulhussein for his constructive criticism contributing towards this web site, for permission to use excerpts from his published works and for his encouraging commentary on matters pertaining to the presentation of material correctly and factually.
