Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf

White Thread Press

by Shaykh Abdurrahman ibn Yusuf

In recent decades many attacks have been launched against the concept of taqlid [following a school of Islamic law]. Opposition has ranged from being mild with degrees of acceptance to malicious attacks. Certain extreme elements have gone so far as to brand those who follow a madhhab [school] as mushrik [polytheist]. Much of the opposition has been a result of misunderstanding the realities of this concept.

The first part of this book seeks to clarify certain aspects of taqlid that have been misunderstood and gravely distorted. It sheds light on the necessity of taqlid, its history, and its role in today's world. The second part includes several chapters devoted to issues regarding salat [ritual prayer] according to the Hanafi school of law. Through illustrative examples and detailed discussions, the chapters on prayer sufficiently demonstrate the sophisticated legal philosophy employed by the Hanafi school (indeed all the madhhabs) in their derivation of legal rulings from the source texts of Islam.

All rulings have been supported with evidentiary proofs from the Qur'an and Hadith. The author delivers an even-handed presentation of arguments throughout the book. He intends neither to offend nor to perpetuate polemic disputes, but rather to state the facts in a lucid and rational style, with a view to appeal to the reader's sense of reason.

Allahu Akbar!
Masha'Allah. I love this book! We are in a day and age where people are talking about whether following the Mathahib are necessary and if so, what are the proofs for their positions. Alhamdulilah, Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala gave me the blessed opportunity to read this book and, not only read it, but understand and appreciate the Key proofs for some of the positions in the Hanafi Mathhab. This is a must read for those curious as to why the positions are so in the Hanafi Mathhab.

Fiqh al-Imam
This is definitely a must-have book for Hanafi followers. It is very detailed and comprehensive about the major differences in fiqh issues we see nowadays and is clear on the strong stance of the Hanafi madhab on his opinion. It also allows the student to learn about the views of other madhabs as well as actions we see these days that are totally contrary to any practice of the Prophet (saw).
