Islamic 'Aqidah and Fiqh the textbook by Hajiyah B. Aisha Lemu in the 1980s, offers a new approach to the teaching of Islamic Studies, especially for younger students. It offers authentic information on Islamic 'Aqidah and Fiqh in simple English, combining the spirit of the teachings of Islam with their moral and social values. This work handles Islamic belief ('Aqidah) by covering the articles of faith in detail and presenting the Fiqh involving the Five Pillars of Islam. Issues of common concern, such as honest business and marriage and divorce are discussed in detail. Given that the original textbook was written primarily for West African audiences, it covered only the Maliki School of Thought. Moreover, the author has used her wealth of knowledge of other subjects in putting facts across to the students effectively. She has also employed rational arguments in helping the reader to understand the lessons thoroughly. IQRA' International Educational Foundation has this revised and expanded edition of very popular textbook. They thoroughly revised the series to cover all major schools of Fiqh, which increases the effectiveness of this book for use, especially in Muslim institutions of the West, where we have students of all madhahib studying, learning and growing up together. However, IQRA' has here fully revised the work to cover other schools of Sunni Fiqh and all 5 schools of Islamic jurisprudence. Sister Lemu has made a great contribution towards the effective dissemination of the knowledge of Islam, especially among the young ones. I recommend this textbook for use in schools. I also recommend it to the older reader who may wish to acquaint himself with the basic teachings of Islamic 'Aqidah and Fiqh. ISBN-10: 1563160617
