These people are in a search of detecting some faults that run counter to Islam and cause harm to other people, in the lives of people who pray to God.

In these centuries, Murshids (spiritual teachers) gave great importance to voluntary prayers (such as sunnah) as well as farz (obligatory religious precepts) to help believers get close to God even closer. Besides, many big and small masjid (mosques), lodges of dervish, and Muslim theological schools were built.
Now, doomsday is nearing. Now, it is the era in which everyone is completely interested in worldly things, they get estranged from their religion, they lead dissolute lives, they run ...more
