Description from the publisher:
The Sharia; based on the holy revelation (the Quran and Sunnah); sets out the way for believers to sustain a devotional relationship with their creator and to treat His creation with justice and graciousness. In â€˜Umdat al-Fiqh; Imam Ibn Qudamah has produced a valuable resource by summarizing all the rules according to the Hanbali school; in these volumes; I have translated his authoritative manual and written a commentary on it. My commentary includes the views of the other schools of fiqh where warranted; and it addresses some contemporary issues; particularly those pertaining to Muslims living as minorities in non-Muslim societies. I augmented it with proofs from the revelations; as well as rational arguments; and expounded on some of the wisdom of the legislation. I also used symbols and bullet points; as well as charts; tables; and graphs for simplification. This; I hope; will allow for the book to be utilized with ease and referred to as a primary source of fiqh.
