    ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

    All Praise and Thanks belong to Allh , the One without

    Whose Guidance this translation and transliteration of the

    Khulah The Cream of Remembrance would not have

    been possible; and to Al-Muaf, our beloved Prophet

    Muammad who was imbued with excellence, grace and
