I gathered in this book the ruling that
are related to combining the salaah due to the persistent need and the
great importance of knowing this topic. Thus I write it in such a manner
that befits the people of the present time even though they may be
differing levels with regards to knowledge and understanding.
I have chosen not to restrict the rulings that are within this book to
the methodology of one particular school of thought thereby limiting the
people to that one thought. I have verified and stated the grade of
ahadeeth that are mentioned herein. 'And what good are ahadeeth that
the authentic and the weak are both mixed up and you cannot distinguish
between the two and you do not investigate about the one who it is
narrated by. Taken from the Author's introduction.
