Book introduction

A Shiʼi-Sunni dialogue also translated as The Right Path is a book written by the Lebanese Shiʼa Muslim cleric and religious authority Abd al-Husayn Sharaf al-Din al-Musawi in Arabic as al-Murājaʿāt (Arabic: المراجعات), then it has been translated to more than ten languages including English.

Shia state that the book takes the form of a collection of a series of written communications between Sayyid Abd al-Husayn Sharaf al-Din al-Musawi (signing with the first letter of his name 'Sh') and Shaykh Salim al-Bishri (signing with the letter 'S') (the letters sh and s also possibly allude to the shia-sunni nature of the dialogue). The book is particularly unique due to combining:

1) The authors relate their thoughts in a very academic yet respectful manner. Very occasionally, the dialogue turns heated, which is only expected given the nature of the topic under discussion, yet that only leads to more interesting and fruitful discussions.

2) The book is written in a highly elegant manner, making use of literary references, in contrast with numerous other books in this area wherein the arguments are typically presented in monotonic, putely academic tones.

3) Due to the colloquial nature of the communications, the discussions take unexpected turns and are filled with notes that are not commonly encountered in this area.

4) The author has provided informative footnotes/references to the original letters.

امام زمان عج فرمودند:

اگر شيعيان ما ـ كه خداوند آنها را به طاعت و بندگى خويش موفّق بدارد ـ در وفاى به عهد و پيمان الهى اتّحاد واتّفاق مى‌داشتند و عهد و پيمان را محترم مى‌شمردند، سعادت ديدار ما به تأخير نمى‌افتاد و زودتر به سعادت ديدار ما نائل مى‌شدند.

اَللّهُمَّ عَجِّل لِوَلیِّکَ الفَرَج

جهت تعجیل در فرج

وارث غدیر
