FAMOUS FIQH BOOKS like al-Maqasid have stood the test of time because of their sheer usefulness. Compact enough to be memorized by students becoming scholars, al-Maqasid contains hundreds of rulings of personal Islamic law distilled from the most commonly asked and answered questions in schools and mosques from the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) down to Imam Nawawi.

Widely considered the best medium-size handbook available in English for teaching the basics of Islam from a traditional perspective, this new edition has been revised and updated with a full complement of notes on a number of contemporary Muslim issues, and three major essays have been appended on why Muslims follow madhhabs, hadiths the mujtahid Imams lacked, and the place of Sufism in Islam.


"... a concise and eminently lucid and practical exposition of Islamic knowledge in its three dimensions of Islam, Iman, and Ihsan ..." -- Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi

"... no work in English says so much about the din of Islam so concisely, so authoritatively, and with such clarity." -- Yusuf Talal DeLorenzo

"… A textbook for classes on Islam …" -- Dr. Devin J. Stewart, Middle East Studies Association Bulletin
