Mukhtasar Al-Quduri is arguably one of the most celebrated and influential treatises in any Muslim school of methodology and thought and is the foundation for the Hanafi school. It is both the first source for scholars and a manual for the general reader.
Al-Mukhtasar - the jurisprudential treatise of Imam al-Quduri, may Allah be pleased with him, has enjoyed far more popularity than any other text, in the Hanafi school. It is the nucleus around which laws evolve, and the foundation upon which other text, commentaries and summaries are based. The Mukhtasar addresses numerous issues, spanning the entire spectrum of fiqh, for the book covers not only matters of worship, but also business transactions, personal relations and penal and judicial matters.

Imam al-Quduri : He was al-Imam al-?Allamah Abu ‘l-Husayn Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Baghdadi al-Quduri, radi Allahu ta'ala anhu. He is more commonly known by his nisbah, as Imam al-Quduri. He was born in the year 362 A.H. He studied Fiqh from Abu ?Abdillah al-Faqih Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Jurjani. Among the jurists that learned Fiqh at his hands was Abu Nasr Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-Aqta?. The chief justice (qadi al-qudat) Abu ?Abdillah al-Damaghani narrates hadith from him, and so does al-Khatib al-Baghdadi. Imam al-Quduri, distinguished himself in Fiqh due to his intelligence. He went on to become the leader of the Hanafi scholars in Iraq, and he rose amongst them in status and fame. He authored :
*** al-Mukhtasar, the fiqh summary bearing his name,
*** al-Tajrid, encompassing the disagreed issues between the Hanafis & Shafi'is.
*** al-Taqrib, also in issues of disagreement, a summary which he compiled for his son.
Al-Quduri was one of the ashab al-tarjih (jurists who weighed and analysed the strengths of differing verdicts in the madhhab). He died on 15th Rajab 428 AH in Baghdad, and was buried in his home, but was later transported and buried beside Abu Bakr al-Khawarizmi, another Hanafi jurist. He was well-spoken in his views, of a bold tongue, and constant in reciting the Qur'an.
