A question was put forward to the author from the Muslims of Japan, from the cities of Tokyo and Osaka, to which this book was written as a reply. Their letter to him is as follows:
“What is the true sense of the religion of Islam? What does madhhab mean? Does everyone who is honoured with the religion of Islam have to join one of the four madhhabs? That is to be a Maalikee, Hanafee, Shaafi’ee or Hambalee, or other than that, or is that not binding? There have been great differences and much argumentation here.
When a number of enlightened thinkers of Japan wished to enter into Islam and to be honoured with eemaan and so that was put to a Muslim organisation in Tokyo. A group of people from India said that they would have to choose the madhhab of Imaam Abu Haneefah, since he was “the Lamp of the Ummah” whilst a group of Indonesians from Java said that they must become Shaafi’ees!
When the Japanese heard this, they were very surprised and thought again. The question of madhhabs became an obstacle in their way of becoming Muslims!
So, our teacher, we should like to hear from your knowledge, that which will be a cure for this illness and poison, if Allaah wills. We hope that you can explain the true state of affairs so that our hearts may become calm and our chests open to the cure for ignorance, for which you will receive reward from Allaah, the Most High and thanks from us, the muhaajireen from Russia.
