In this book, Sheikh Salih does not speak about himself;
rather, his biography speaks for him.
Meetings with scores of people belonging to different walks of life show that they all agree on his distinguished character.
He is such a man that whenever I sit with him, I benefit from his keenness to make good use of time, his obedience to Allah, the way he performs his religious obligations, his modesty, and his unlimited contributions to charity.
I do not know anyone who built or contributed to building so many mosques as he did. He is a man who built a prayer chamber and kept to it.
His life has exceeded 80 years…., the life of a man who has achieved wealth and fame and made good deeds.
This man is famous to everyone except to him. That is, he is a celebrity to all but not to himself.
He is a man who has created a fortune and consequently became not only one of the biggest investors but also a pioneer in the Islamic banking industry. He is also among the biggest real estate agents and the biggest owners of palm farms in the world. After long care of these farms, he made them into a Waqf [endowment] to Allah.
We want this book to be useful to all people in its simple language and clear ideas so that it may be a new contribution to the field of biography.
Undoubtedly, every craftsman must be skilled in his profession and everyone with a great wealth can be a life-maker since money can be used to serve the interest of both religion and nation.
This book sheds light on the initial stages of his journey and the obstacles and difficulties he faced during those stages. It also focuses on the stages of success and competition.
Also his journey has ended with the greatest Waqf ever known in the history of Islam. As good deeds are crowned with asking Allah, the Almighty, for forgiveness, his endeavor in life is crowned with an unprecedented charitable work.
Failure precedes success.
Pains are followed by pleasure.
Due to his endeavors, his patience in poverty, his good exploitation of his fortune, his endowments, and his charitable deeds, he has been rewarded with further means through which he managed to do good deeds.
He is a creative person in all fields of life and, as we know, the full meaning of creativity is very difficult to comprehend.
This book contains interesting stories and strange events and situations and depicts a journey from suffering to comfort, from pain to pleasure, from sadness to happiness and from good to best. Read it! You may benefit or learn something new.
