The Seekers Aid - In Upholding The Religious Duties
"The Seekers Aid - In Upholding The Religious Duties, A Manual on Creed and Hanafi Fiqh." - Is'af al-Muridin li Iqamah Fara'id al-Din,
The Prophet, salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, said " Islam is built upon five [pillars] : the Testimony that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing the Prayer, paying Zakat, making the Hajj to the House and Fasting in Ramadan' (narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
This short treatise succinctly presents each of these five pillars with the detail necessary for their correct understanding and application. Any Muslim, whether the student of knowledge or the layman, may benefit from it in this regard. It thus serves as a primer to intermediate and advanced works in Hanafi fiqh. Due to the brevity of the work, footnotes have been drawn from 'The Essential Islamic Creed' and the Believers Guide' series already published. See 'Heritage Press' link below.
The original Arabic text has also been included in this edition togther with its English translation and footnotes. The edition used for the Arabic text was the Dar al-Basha'ir/Dar al-Siraj edition, which was edited by Dr. Sa'id Bakdash.
