Author's Introduction

Here are a number of traditions to be found in the 'Shi'a Guide to the Shari'a'4 and other books regarding the importance of the Qur'an and its etiquettes and disciplines which we have mentioned hoping to bring benefit to many. We have preceded this with information about the collation of the Qur'an and its textual non-corruption and that not one word or letter has been added nor subtracted.

It is the same Qur'an today that was sent down to the Messenger of Allah and was compiled by him in the same structure of verses and chapters at the command of Allah during his life.
