Description :

Indeed, the Holy Quran and Sunnah [Traditions of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)] are the primary sources of guidance for us in every walk of life, but finding out the correct guidance from them is not an easy. It neccessarily requires to have thorough knowledge of the Quran, Hadith, traditions of the Companions of the Prophet (May Allah be pleased with them), and an in-depth understanding of the context and circumstances surrounding the situations is needed to be fittingly explore these sources. And, beyond a mere doubt, acquiring these various knowledges is usually not possible by a single person. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to sincerly find the better solution.

The Great Scholars, the Imams, conducted years upon years of research to understand the intricacies of these sources. Indeed, this was the result of there sincere love for the Muslim Ummah [nation| to have given their whole lives for this service. we turn to them and follow them because they have derived rulings from authentic sources based on a systematic manner. This collection of
informations is known as Fiqh [Islamic Law].

For a normal Muslim, it is enough to follow their rulings as it would not be practical for every person to dive into the deep sea of knowledge for each and every single matter.

I have, therefore, decided to write a book which will be in four volumes dealing with Prayers, Fasting, Zakat, Hajj & Umrah, Marriage and Divorce, etc. and this is the first volume of them. It will allow you to understand the many matters about Prayer [Salat].

Before moving forward, it will be very valuable to shed light on the Hanafi Fiqh [Hanafi School of Islamic Jurisprudence] and its origin, importance, and authenticity as this book is a study of the ruling based on the Hanafi School.

I am very grateful to Mr. Omair Jabbar and my daughter Ms. Nadia Zulfa for going through the manuscript and giving useful suggestions. May Allah, the Exalted, accept our efforts and guide us in understanding Islam in an authentic way.
