Description :

Allah has commanded us to worship and obey Him with sincerity, reverence, love, and gratitude. 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'' (98:5). This worship is not possible without knowledge. This short work outlines the absolute essentials of this knowledge. It is based on the methodology of traditional Sunni Islam, according to the Shafi'i school of Islamic law, and its purpose is to make ones worship valid, sound, and proper in a short amount of time.


"A welcome addition to the growing list of Shafi'i legal texts in English. Its brevity, simplicity, and focus on practical needs make it a perfect choice for short courses or individual reading'' ---Shaykh Musa Furber,  Research Fellow, Tabah Institute.

"A summarized work discussing the basics of prayer and fasting according to the Shafi'i Madhhab. With lucid presentation and relevant content, it is a good read for any Muslim looking to learn the basics of these important rituals.'' ---Mawlana Yaqub Abdurrahman,  Teacher,

"Essential knowledge grounded in traditional Shafi'i scholarship, and  presented in a clear contemporary idiom. Every Muslim must learn the contents of this book.'' ---Shaykh Hamza Karamali,  Research Fellow, Kalam Institute.

"This book is a much appreciated effort that helps to make the religion of Allah understandable to all Muslims and implement in their lives.'' ---Shaykh Omar Qureshi,  Teacher, Seeker's Guidance.
