Read Chapter 1 Fundamentals of Faith and Sacred Law
Imam Nawawi's classic manual of Islam, al-Maqasid, was first composed as a fiqh matn, or synopsis of the practical requirements of Islam—faith, purification, the prayer, charity, fasting, and pilgrimage—for students to memorise. The handbook's clear and concise style will help anyone seeking to learn the essentials of Islamic practice and spirituality from a reliable, traditional source. Although best known for his work on hadith, Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi (d. 676AH/1277AD) was also the Imam of the later Shafi'i school of jurisprudence, and widely acknowledged as the intellectual heir of Imam Shafi'i. He was a great scholar and jurist who dedicated his life to the pursuit of Islamic learning. Specially useful for those who follow the Shaf'ee Fiqh
