Description :

This is the second volume in the Introducing Fiqh Educational Series. It contains 20 sections covering key aspects of the legal rulings (ahkam) related to conditions, integrals and application of the Prayer (salah). The material is drawn from the Hanafi legal school as well as its major fatawa collections. The base texts used include al-Shurnbulali's primer Nur al-Idah with his own commentary Maraqi al-Falah as well as his parallel primer Maraqi al-Sa'adat and al-Quduri's Mukhtasar with its commentary al-Lubab by 'Abd al-Ghani al-Nablusi. The larger legal references are the encyclopaedia of edicts al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya and the canonical corpus juris Radd al-Muhtar of Ibn Abidin.

The book contains copious Arabic citations for the more advanced students or for those wishing to continue further research into the legal evidences and discussions. This book is ideal for the classroom format but is also suitable for independent learning due to its structure, lucidity and detail.
