Dr. Hatem al-Haj has translated and elaborated on it, noting the opinions of other schools of Islamic jurisprudence, thus giving the English-speaking student a broader base for his or her understanding of fiqh. The author has made the difficult subject of fiqh easier to learn and more comprehensible by using visual aids and a unique symbol system. This book is a must-have for the serious student of knowledge. In the author’s words: This knowledge will only be beneficial if it is sought for Allah’s sake, coupled with compassionate devotion towards Him and diligent adherence to the way of our most beloved, Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him). It will be retained only by frequent reviews, and confirmed by teaching it to those who are less knowledgeable. Worship, when devoutly observed and correctly performed, is the ultimate human function for which people were created, and the only way to attain the ultimate success, being the pleasure of our Lord (Exalted is He). Imam Ibn Qudâmah al-Maqdisi: He was a distinguished scholar of fiqh, known for his mastery of fiqh knowledge and principles and for his wisdom in promoting the correct practice of Islam. Ibn Katheer said of him: There was not found in his era nor before it by a long span of time, anyone possessing more fiqh—understanding of the religion—than him. Ibn Taymeeyah and others also said the same.
