Widely considered the best medium-size handbook available in English for teaching the basics of Islam from a traditional perspective, this new edition has been revised and updated with a full complement of notes on a number of contemporary Muslim issues, and three major essays have been appended on why Muslims follow madhhabs, hadiths the mujtahid Imams lacked, and the place of Sufism in Islam.

I still learned a lot from this text and recommend it for others who seek deeper and greater understanding of Islam, particularly the Shafi'i school Imam Nawawi is part of.
I appreciated the clarity of teaching in each section and especially the section on Sufism. Oct 12, George Hall rated it it was amazing. Great book onShafi'i jurisprudence. Oct 01, Izzat Halim rated it it was amazing. A succinct manual for the shafiis with excellent additions on the common problems faced by a common muslim in this world today.
A definite recommendation for 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 '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 its a welcomed but necessary addition to fiqh books. View 1 comment.
Dec 11, Hamza rated it it was amazing Shelves: religion , islam , favorites. 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. Mar 08, David Kearns rated it it was amazing.
