The book sheds light on the lives and achievements of the four revered Imams of Fiqhi schools of thought namely: Imam Abu Hanifah, Imam Malik, Imam Shafiee, and Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal. By giving accounts of the life of four Imams, the writer sought to highlight the fact that the four eminent Imams and their true followers never wanted to create differences, conflict and strife among Muslims. It would have been better if the writer had given references according to academic standards, so that the book could be up to the mark.
