A Basic Hanafi Primer on Faith, Prayer, & the Path of Salvation. Allah The Almighty has commanded us to worship and obey Him, with sincerity, out of reverence, love, and thankfulness. He says in the Qur’an :
''And they are ordered only to serve Allah, keeping religion pure
for Him, to remain upright, and to establish worship and to pay
the poor-due. That is true religion” [al-Qur’an, 98.5].
This worship is not possible without knowledge. This short work outlines the absolute essentials of this knowledge: in faith, prayer, and key points related to one’s life and dealings.
It is based on the methodology of traditional Sunni Islam, according to the Hanafi school, the largest school of Islamic law, and its purpose is to make one’s worship valid, sound, and proper in a short amount of time.
