Description :

Sharh Ma'ani al-Athar is the famous Hanafi fiqh manual by Imam at-Tahawi, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi. In this classical work Imam al-Tahawi rigorously studies all of the texts relating to each branch of fiqh and the positions of the Imams of the maddhabs with respect to those rulings.

Imam Abu Ja`far al-Tahawi (b.239-d.321 Hijri) can be said to represent the creed of both Ash`aris and Maturidis, especially the latter, as he was also following the Hanafi madhhab. We have therefore chosen to include the entire translated text of his Statement of Islamic Doctrine commonly known as the `Aqida Tahawiyya.

Mawlana Amjad Ali A'zami, Rahmatullahi 'alayhi, was bestowed with many different sciences and branches of knowledge, but he had an intrinsic inclination towards the knowledge, which is regarded as sacred, i.e Qur'an and Hadith. He had a great inclination towards Tafsir, Hadith & Fiqh, & held detailed, but complex Islamic rulings of many different topics, of Fiqh on the tip of his tongue. In recognition of this multi dimensional knowledge, Shaykh Imam Ahmed Rida, may Allah be pleased with him, the Great Reviver of Islam, conferred the title “Sadr al-Shari’ah” to him.

                Kashful Astari : Sadr al-Shari’ah started writing marginal notes
                (annotations or hawashi) on the voluminous book of Imam Abu
                Ja’far Tahawi “Sharh Ma’an al-‘athar”, and in the short period
                of seven months, he completed a comprehensive annotation. The
                special feature & note of surprise is that the annotation was hand
                written with a fine-pointed pen, and that too with one pen; it
                comprised 450 pages, each page consisting of 35-36 lines!
                Mawlana Amjad Ali also wrote the universally acclaimed Bahar

Imam Abu Ja`far Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-Azdi, known as Imam al-Tahawi, after his birthplace in Egypt, is among the most outstanding authorities of the Islamic world on hadith and jurisprudence (fiqh). He lived at a time when both the direct and indirect disciples of the Four Imams of law were teaching and practicing. This period was the greatest age of Hadith and fiqh studies, and Imam Tahawi studied with all the living authorities of the day. Al-Badr al-`Ayni said that when Ahmad died, Tahawi was 12; when Bukhari died, he was 27; when Muslim died, he was 32; when Ibn Majah died, he was 44; when Abu Dawud died, he was 46; when Tirmidhi died, he was fifty; when Nisa'i died, he was 74.

Imam al-Kawthari relates this and adds the consensus of scholars that Tahawi allied in himself completion in the two knowledges of hadith and fiqh, a consensus that included, among others, al-`Ayni and al-Dhahabi, with Ibn Taymiyya singling himself out in his opinion that Tahawi was not very knowledgeable in hadith. This is flatly contradicted by Ibn Kathir who says in his notice on Tahawi in al-Bidaya wa al-nihaya: "He is one of the trustworthy narrators of established reliability, and one of the massive memorizers of hadith." Al-Kawthari calls Ibn Taymiyya's verdict "another one of his random speculations" and states: "No-one disregards al-Tahawi's knowledge of the defective hadith except someone whose own defects have no remedy, and may Allah protect us from such."---G.F. Haddad.
