Books for SHAF'I Fiqh


The study of the madhhab begins with the condensed works: `Umdat al-Salik, Matn Ibn ABi Shuja`, and al-Muqaddima al-Hadramiyya.

For the dala'il of the Madhhab, the best sources are the 14-volume al-Bayan - just published - al-Bayhaqi's Ma`rifat al-Sunan, and al-Nawawi's Majmu`.

An important textbook is also the Wasit of Imam al-Ghazzali, just republished in an excellent edition.
