*[A5] Paperback - 77 pages,
by Habib Abu Bakr al-'Adni b. 'Ali al-Mashhur,
English Translation by Shaykh Ahmed Saad al-Azhari,
Published by Dar al-Turath al-Islami & Ihsan Institute.

Description :

For centuries, the focus of Muslim scholarship was on the triangle of worship, belief and spirituality, which presented the three essential aspects and foundational sciences of the Islamic religion i.e. Jurisprudence, Creed and Sufism.

Although these three are mentioned alongside a fourth essential aspect i.e. knowing the signs of the Day of Judgement, this fourth component did not receive much focus from the early scholars as an independent discipline, possibly because the need for it was not as poignant as it is today.

In this book, the author reconnects the fourth aspect, highlighting the importance of understanding the changes and challenges facing the world today. This freshly addressed topic is now an independent discipline entitled ‘Fiqh of Transitions and Social Changes’. Understanding the changes and transitions in the world, which are manifestations of the arrival of the Last Day, will enable us to navigate peacefully in turbulent times.
