Description :

This is a new translation of Nur al-Ida wa Najat al-Arwah, A Classical Manual of Hanafi Law. 

Nur al-idah is a text that deals with the subject matters of purification, prayer, and fasting in an exhaustive manner.

This important primer, written in the 17th Century, in the Hanafi School of law, has had unanimous acceptance in the Muslim Sunni world for centuries and is usually the first text studied in law by the neophyte student up until today.

This translation is clear, with additional space for making hand-written notes and beneficial footnotes that make it an indispensable resource for any serious student of the Hanafi School, whether studying the text in English or any other language. There is an added section on Zakah to cover the immediate core areas of worship that are essential in every Muslim's daily and yearly life. The layman and the student alike will no doubt benefit from this priceless work.
