Supplement for the Seeker of Certitude

 Supplement for the Seeker of Certitude : New,
*[A5+] Paperback - 231 pages,
'Worship' from Zad al-Mustaqni,
by Musa al-Hajjawi al-Hanbali,
Translated by Musa Furber,
Published by Islamosaic.

Description :

'Supplement for the Seeker of Certitude' presents the sections related to worship from Musa al-Hajjawi’s Zād al-Mustaqni‘, an abridgment of Ibn Qudamah’s Al-Muqni‘ that sticks to the school’s official position, removing extraneous issues, and adding a few necessary things.

The book is extremely terse yet it still manages to present the basics for the school along with issues rarely found in books twice its length. The book was accepted by scholars of the school to such an extent that some said that whoever has memorized it is fit to be a judge. The book continues to be considered essential reading for students of the school, making it a natural choice for presenting the school to English readers.

It is more advanced than 'Hanbali Acts of Worship' and it is intended to be read as a supplement to it.

The contents of this edition are based on a series of lessons the translator delivered in 2002–2003, with numerous corrections (and only slight editing). The chapters covered in the text include purification, prayer, zakah, fasting, pilgrimage, and jihad. The text includes numerous notes from Mansur al-Buhuti’s commentary Al-Rawḍ al-Murbi‘.

Musa Furber is a Research Fellow at the Tabah Foundation, and is a qualified issuer of edicts (mufti). He received his license to deliver legal edicts (fatwas) from senior scholars at the Egyptian House of Edicts, including the Grand Mufti of Egypt. He was raised in Portland, Oregon, and lives in the United Arab Emirates.
