I'm referring to the standard fiqh texts taught in the 'alim course such as Nur al-Idah, Mukhtasar al-Quduri, Kanz al-Daqaiq, Sharh al-Wiqaya, and Hidayah. For someone who's not a student of knowledge and would like to learn the issues relation to women in plain english, I would recommend buying this book: http://www.al-rashad.com/product_inf...8722aa872d7f1d
To be honest, I haven't read this book in detail but by merely looking over it, I would say it probably addresses most of the complicated issues in relation to hayd, istihada, nifas, etc.
Does anyone know which publisher's copy of this book has the best quality? I've seen ZamZam publishers but from previous experiences with their books, I am not really convinced. Any links to where I can buy this book would be appreciated.
"All humans are dead except those who have knowledge. And all those who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds. And those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere. And those who are sincere are always in a state of worry." [Imam ash-Shafi`i]
The book "A gift for women" is very good
And, behold, with every hardship comes ease verily, with every hardship comes ease Hence when thou art freed from distress remain steadfast and turn to thy lord
The Prophet (PBUH)Said : “Whoever does not pray ‘Asr, all his good deeds are cancelled out.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari (528)]
