Sayyiduna Muawiyah ibn Abu Sufyaan Radhiyallahu Anhu, besides being the brother-in-law of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi wa Sallam, was blessed with the honour of being from amongst the scribes of the Quraan, was blessed with many duas from the blessed tongue of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi wa Sallam, was instrumental in bringing an end to the battles that were raging amongst the Muslim Ummah on account of the assasination of Sayyiduna Uthmaan Radhiyallahu Anhu and was amongst those leaders in Islam who have been described as the 'mahdi' of their era.

Unfortunately, due to ignorance regarding the great virtues of this noble Sahabi, and on account of trusting unreliable reports which have been recorded in the books of history, some have erred greatly in criticizing this giant of Islam and have thus placed their faith in great danger, on account of criticizing a beloved companion of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi wa Sallam. 

The aim of this short booklet is to bring forth some of the authentic recorded virtues of Sayyiduna Muawiyah Radhiyallahu Anhu, whereby one may realise that those historical reports which claim otherwise are mere fabrications and should not be given any consideration whatsoever.
