By Dr. Abdul-Azeem Badawi. There are now a number of introductory compendiums of fiqh available in various languages. However, this particular work has unique aspects that have made it a popular work in its native Arabic language and which should make it, Allah (SWT) willing, an important contribution to the Islamic literature available in English. For example, the author has restricted his foundations for fiqh to the Quran and the authentic hadith of the Prophet, painstakingly avoiding any of the weak and rejected hadith that are found in the majority of the books of fiqh. To further ensure that this work is of the utmost reliability, the author has also restricted his discussion to what is most directly derived from the Quran and Sunnah and, therefore, logically above dispute. International Islamic Publishing House (2007), Hardback, 702 pages.
"Shaikh Abdul Adheem ibn Badawi has complied with briefness in wording the evidences that can satisfy the truth seeker. This book, albeit small in comparison with the larger works, has combined together two books. First, it is a book containing fiqh that takes the hand of the reader and shows him what he should do. Second it is a book of hadith that displays the statements and actions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The combination of these two is a great blessing. The book is sufficient for the one seeking to travels to Allah’s pleasure and will also satisfy the knowledge seekers; thrist for knowledge. Thus, it is a book that the people need. I hope that the reader will ponder over it, starting with its introduction and not neglecting its final words, while acting upon what it contains between these two." - Muhammad Salwat Noor al-Deen
