This book has been taken from a very old manuscript written in the 10th year of Hijrah, or the 17th Century according to the Gregorian calendar. The author was called Shaykh Hasan ibn Ammar Abu al-Ikhlaas al-Hanafi al-Wafaa'i, al-Shurunbulali, may Allah have mercy upon him, he is also the author of the famous Hanafi fiqh book Noor al-Idah. This work began as a direct translation of Noor al-Idah, however as it was being taught in the first year, it became apparent that this style may not be easily understood by the youth of today. And so what resulted was a series of lessons rewritten with suitable activities, tasks and additional information to enhance the orginal script. The order of the Lesson Topics and the detail of the issues is almost exactly the same as in the original text.
This book not only incorporates the issues of fiqh, but it also touches on wider issues of concern to Muslims and humans in general. It is a very accessible and easy text to understand and teach, furthermore, it uses highly relevant activities to engage the students with the text so that it is not just the written words that are memorised. The book captures the essence of the true meaning of fiqh, which is to understand - and then it also allows the students to explore practical aspects of the topics at hand and also the wider implications which fiqh as a subject has in modern times.
This book may be used in conjunction with an original manuscript of the original Arabic text by the teacher to gain a deeper understanding of all the issues. On the other hand it is also possible to teach it as a text in its own right, since all difficult concepts are explained inconsiderable detail throughout in the form of footnotes.
The correct development of human intelligence is highly dependent upon cleanliness and purity; purity of mind body and soul. This is why our scholars of fiqh ~(Islamic Jurisprudence) begin any work on the subject of fiqh with the chapter of Purity. Islaam is a pure religion which emphasises physical, mental and spiritual purity.
In 1986, on a tour of Copenhagen, Denmark, a university professor replied upon my questioning him why he had accepted the religion of Islam, that it was the system of ritual purity which had attracted him towards the religion.
