“…Recorded what is basic, to the point, and what a Muslim is supposed to know”

*BACK IN STOCK* As-Sayyid Sabiq is famous the world over for his book (set of volumes) entitled Fiqh us-Sunnah, which has been translated and studied in many languages. Fiqh us-Sunnah is a complete, yet very concise, manual of 'Fiqh' (Islamic law or Shari‘ah) presented in a highly readable format with clear, simple language and with no preferential treatment given to any one of the four Sunni madh-habs over another. The author was encouraged to write the book by Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, who recognized as-Sayyid Sabiq’s unique ability to understand Fiqh issues and explain them. As-Sayyid Sabiq was born in Egypt in 1915. He memorized the Noble Qur’an by the age of nine and was a graduate of Al-Azhar, where he later taught. He also taught at Umm al-Qura Islamic University in Makkah. He died in February 2000 CE. About Fiqh-us-Sunnah, the respected scholar as-Sayyid Sabiq writes: "In dealing with the subject [of fiqh, or jurisprudence of the Sunnah], I have recorded what is basic, to the point, and what a Muslim is supposed to know...I say with confidence that I have presented the authentic Fiqh with which Allah has sent the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). At the same time, I have tried to make it easier for people to understand and to bring them together [following] the Book and the Sunnah. I have avoided the differences and the wrong practice of blindly sticking to one school of thought. These first four volumes cover the topics of purification, prayer, zakâh, fasting, funerals, dhikhr (remembrance of Allah), supplications, hajj and 'umrah."
