Abu Hanifah (ra) - His Life, Legal Method and Legacy
EXCLUSIVE BOOK LAUNCH ON Abu Hanifa(ra)!!!
“An excellent addition and must read for anyone wanting to truly understand Abu Hanifa(ra) and his legal framework”
Abu Hanifah Nu'man ibn Thabit (d. 150/767) is one of the great pioneers in the history of Islamic Law. He was among the first to deploy the recognized methods of legal reasoning consistently, and to gather the judgments and rulings of his time into a systematic corpus. The Fiqh that evolved from his style of reasoning, carried on by his brilliant students, became associated with his name. The Hanafi School is the one most widely followed among the world's Sunni Muslims. This study of Abu Hanifah's life and legacy is based on the traditional sources. It includes a short survey of how Hanafi fiqh evolved in different regions of the Islamic world. It offers a clear reminder of the criteria and conditions traditionally applied before any ruling gained general acceptance.
This new book written and delivered by the author, Shaykh Muhamamd Akram Nadwi offers the chance for students and readers to explore the book and ideas with the noble author.
