Al-bAghdādī

(362 Ah – 428 Ah)

The Mukhtaṣar al-Qudūrī is one of the most

celebrated and influential treatises in any

Muslim school of methodology and thought

and is the foundation for the Ḥanafī school.

It is both the first source for scholars and a

manual for the general reader.

Its judgements, based on divine revelation,

trace back directly through men of the

highest calibre, such as al-Jaṣṣāṣ and Abū

Ḥanīfah, may Allah have mercy on them,

to ‘Abdullāh ibn Mas‘ūd æand other great

Companions and thence to Muḥammad œ,

the Final Messenger of Allah.

This is its first ever complete translation

in English.
