INTRODUCTION TO

THE SECOND VOLUME OF USŪL AL-KÃFĪ

 

Our infinite thanks are due to the Beneficient Allãh that after a painful delay that took place in the translation and publication of an-other part of Usūl from the book of al-Kãfī, now, by the Grace of the Almighty Allãh, this Organization has seriously decided to expedite the work of translation and publication of the second volume of the book.

Though we lost the services of most of the scholarly group who worked in the translation of the first volume, nevertheless, we have been able – by the Help of the Almighty Allãh – to acquire valuable resources with renewed scholarly control. This has given us the initiative for rapid progress of the work.

The question of morality is one of the most important issues of the day. Whenever forces of materialism  indulge in excesses, the necessity to work in the field of morality becomes more obvious and urgent. Materialism leades to oppresion, humiliation, degradation of human character and increases social insecurity. Fortunately, this second volume of Usūl al-Kãfī generally deals with morality and a part of it deals with supplication and the Holy Qur'ãn.

According to undeniable Hadīthu 'th-Thaqalayn and most of the indisputable narrations from the Shī‛ah and the Sunnī that the Holy Qur'ãn and the Household of the Holy Prophet (Ahlu 'l-Bayt), peace be upon them, are the Two Inseparable Entities, each perfect in itself, reflecting the others. Thus, it is necessary that we should hold fast to these Two Inseparable Ones so that we remain safe from getting astray.This collection of al-Kãfī is the teachings of the Ahlu 'l-Bayt (‛a.s.), and they should be thought along with the Holy Qur'ãn for the quidance of the ummah.

Finally, we implore upon Allãh to affect our work purely for His pleasure, and to help us to complete this work, which we have started. May Allãh guide us in this step which we have taken and in the future steps, for He is the best Master and the best Helper.
