In this work, the author explains various Schools (madh-habs) in the history of Islam, and judges some of them as heretic.

In particular, the author extremly condemns the Sufi teachings of Hamzah Fansuri and Shamsuddin al-Sumatra'i, two leading Ulemas from Aceh, which he regard as pantheistic and heretic.
