Manual of Islam (Nawawi’s) : Al Maqasid
A definite recommendation maqasdi all the muslims out there. May the author be rewarded greatly for this book. Dec 13, Umar rated it liked it. Detailed, but reads like it was written in a hurry. Sometimes a whole act of worship is whittled down to one sentence with a few of the words being completely vague.
Would be much better if it were better organized. A new version is necessary. I felt the additions at the back of the book were unneeded, and in my estimation if those additions can be included that Imam Nawawi never wrote then Shaykh Nuh could definitely toss in some commentary and footnotes, for the countless but all too common Detailed, but reads like it was written in a hurry. I felt the additions at the back of the book were unneeded, and in my estimation if those additions can be included that Imam Nawawi never wrote then Shaykh Nuh could definitely toss in some commentary and footnotes, for the countless but all too common ‘what-if’ scenarios that crops up daily.
A much more organic explanation would be very helpful. Comparable to Za’d al-Ma’ad of Ibn Qayyim in approach. Nonetheless, this is one of the few Islamic books that attempts to cover a great deal of ground so maqaid a welcomed but necessary addition to fiqh books. Dec 11, Hamza rated ijam it was amazing Shelves: What can I say?
It’s a great book, and very helpful especially for followers of the Shafi’i school. Worth reading straight through, including the end notes at least once. Also worth keeping close by for a quick reference if you’re not looking for something super-detailed like you might find in the Reliance.
