As many of us realize, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradhawi is a very prolific scholar. He writes so many books cover wide range of topics. There is one book which was originally a paperwork he presented in a conference back in 1970’s, I found unique but somehow forgotten and neglected by many. The book is Tsaqafah al-Da’iyah. Perhaps the title can be translated as “The Knowledge of a Preacher“.
