The book first seeks to clarify certain aspects of taqlid that have been often misunderstood.. It sheds light on the necessity of taqlid, its history, and its role in today’s world.
The second part is devoted to issues related to salat according to the Hanafi school of law. Through illustrative examples and detailed discussions, the chapters on prayer sufficiently demonstrate the sophisticated legal philosophy employed by the Hanafi school (indeed all the madhhabs) in their derivation of legal rulings from the source texts of Islam.
All rulings have been supported with proofs from the Qur’an and Hadith. The author delivers an even-handed presentation of arguments throughout the book.
The intention is to state the facts in a lucid and rational style, with a view to appeal to the reader’s sense of reason.
