From the preface:

    '' Individual muslims are required to learn the rulings for anything they do in their daily lives. Most Muslims today trace their understanding of law back to schools founded by well-known Imāms, who themselves trace their understanding back to the Prophet ﷺ. This body of Islamic law allows one to carry out what one has been ordered to do while avoiding what one has been ordered to avoid, which results in happiness now and in the Afterlife.

    One of the first texts students of the Shāfiʿ ī school of law read is Abū Shujāʿ ah al-Asfahānī’s introduction to classical Islamic law. This enduring classic covers the full range of basic topics within the Shāfiʿ ī school of law. The present work includes a complete translation of Abū Shujāʿ ah’s conspectus, along with the full Arabic text and notes to point out where later jurists have differed from the author, Imām al-Nawawī’s preferences, and minor clarifications and explanations.''





Abu Shuja' al-Asfahani : He is Shihab ud-Din Ahmad ibn al-Husayn [and it reads Al-Hasan in some works] ibn Ahmad al-Asfahānī. His agnomen (kunya) is Abu Shuja’ as well as Abu Tayyib. He was the Qadi (judge), Imam, scholar of high repute, the ascetic (zahid), a tenacious Faqih (jurist), a righteous and humble ruler (wazir). All such characteristics have been attributed to him by his contemporaries and biographers throughout the ages, such as in the Tabaqat Ash-Shafi’yyah of Qadi ibn Shuhbah, the Tabaqat of As-Subki, and within the many works of the scholars that are commentaries and super-commentaries upon his famous ”Ghayat At-Taqrib”.
