Product Description

In recent decades many attacks have been launched against the concept of taqlid, or following a school of Islamic Law. Opposition has ranged from being mild with degrees of acceptance to malicious attacks. Certain extreme elements have gone so far as to brand those who follow a school as polytheist. Much of the opposition has been a result of misunderstanding the realities of this concept.

The first part of this book seeks to clarify certain aspects of taqlid that have been misunderstood and gravely distorted. It sheds light on the necessity of taqlid, its history, and its role in today's world. The second part includes several chapters devoted to issues regarding prayer according to the Hanafi school of law. Through illustrative examples and detailed discussions, the chapters on prayer sufficiently demonstrate the sophisticated legal philosophy employed by the Hanafi school (and indeed, all the madhhabs) in their derivation of legal rulings from the source texts of Islam.
All rulings have been supported with evidentiary proofs from the Quran and Hadith. The author delivers an even-handed presentation of arguments throughout the book. He intends neither to offend nor to perpetuate polemic disputes, but rather to state the facts in a lucid and rational style, with a view to appeal to the facts in a lucid and rational style, with a view to appeal to the reader's sense of reason.
Abdur-Rahman Ibn Yusuf has studied in England, India, South Africa and Syria under a number of traditional scholars. He received formal authorizations from his teachers in the major Islamic sciences, including a specialization in the science of answering legal questions. He presently serves as an Imam at a Southern Californian masjid and is working on several academic and scholarly publications.
