Al-Maqasid - Nawawi's Manual of Islam
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. The prayers and invocations given in the text have been fully transliterated and their Arabic texts printed in the back. With its almost one hundred new pages, this second edition includes an extensive subject index that lets readers easily locate the answers they are looking for about Islam.
