Customer Reviews


This is an excellent, concise manual of Shafi'i fiqh. Insha' Allah, anyone would benefit from it, regardless of his/her level of knowledge. It functions as a primer for beginners and a handy reference for more advanced students.

Shaykh Musa did a phenomenal job, particularly with his detailed footnotes, which contain the evidences from Qur'an and Hadith that the author refers to in the text.

May Allah reward Shaykh Musa and the author, Aḥmed ibn Zayn al-Ḥabashī.
