Description :

'The Four Sources of Shariah' is an introductory guide to the field of Usul al-Fiqh (principles of jurisprudence). Written in a simple manner, the book aims to show how rulings are derived in Islamic Shari'ah. A separate chapter is devoted to each of the four sources, the Holy Qur'an, Sunnah, Ijma and Qiyas.

This book is ideal for those wishing to gain a true insight into ‘Shariah’, a term that unfortunately many misunderstand.

Reviews :

    "A must have book. By reading this we find out why Ulamas of Ahle Sunnah always stress not to read anybody's books otherwise we can easily get misguided."

    "Excellent book. Well written and in simple English. Ideal for basic understanding of Shariah and how it is formed. A Must have for every Sunni household."
