Foreword of Islamic Laws

By the grace of Allah, The World Federation is pleased to present to the community a new translation of the Tawḍīḥ al-Masā il of His Eminence al-Sayyid Ali al-Husayni al-Sistani (may Allah protect him). The first translation of this work, by Mulla Asgharali M. M. Jaffer, was published by The World Federation in 1994. This edition contains new rulings, as well as changes to some previous rulings, and is annotated by the translator.

Throughout this project we have kept the Office of His Eminence al-Sistani informed and updated. The work has been long-awaited and much-demanded by many community members. The Islamic Education Department of The World Federation has tried for many years to make this a reality but constantly faced obstacles in this task. We were therefore delighted when Shaykh Mohammed Ali Ismail accepted the challenge and agreed to translate this most vital work for us. Not only is this a high-quality translation but it is also a well-researched work that contains helpful footnotes as well as numerous clarifications in square brackets, which will assist readers to better understand the rulings and perform their duties to Allah.

I also acknowledge and appreciate the efforts of the editors as well as the support of The World Federation office bearers. A special word of thanks goes to Sayyid Aliraza Naqvi, formerly The World Federation Assistant Secretary General responsible for Islamic Education, as it was he who commenced this project. May Allah reward them and everyone else who has contributed to this work with the best in this life and in the hereafter, and may He grant them all increased success and grace.
