All along the Quran exerted a steady and moderate influence and thus eliminates all extremes fanatic notions in the conceptions of faith. Nothing demonstrates this more convincingly and decisively than the Quran. The book aims at analysing the facts of the earlier stage of Islam on the problems on the concept of faith, and the later stage the rise of the Sunni scholars and jurists often scarcely distinguished in theearly centuries, realised that being plainly subordination to Allah is absolute. They rose to the occasion and led the majority of the Muslims to a remarkable level of understanding and unity in the main issues of faith. The book consists of six chapters.
