Fiqh books June 14, 2008Posted by Muhajirah in General.
I’m looking for a good book on fiqh, something not too simple, (don’t wanna get bored!), but at the same time it can’t be too detailed (don’t wanna get confused!). Insha’Allah i plan on doing some proper studying (not just a quick read) so I want to buy the best book out there (within a reasonable price range of course)
So far I’ve come across:
1. Fiqh us-Sunnah by Sayyid Sabbiq.
I downloaded pdf version (from here) but not sure if it’s a full version. From what I’ve read so far it looks good. The full set is available in the library so I’m going to check it out before I make my mind on whether it’s the one to get. Each volume costs around £12-£15, but I saw it on Maktabah for £30 (I think it’s the full set!) which seems pretty good, considering its 5 volumes. They’re out of stock though. I’ve seen it at other places for around £60 which is way too expensive! Another (silly) reason i’m inclined to buy it is cos it looks nice =)
2. A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence by Sh. Salih al-Fawzan
Also managed to get hold of a pdf version of this (vol 1 and vol 2). I’ve had a quick read through a few chapters from volume one and I like it. It’s something that if I had a hard copy I could sit down and read properly. Costs around £30 for the set.
3. Fiqh Made Easy by Dr Salih al Sadlan.
Which I don’t know much about except it was recommended by a friend.
So because I am very indecisive, if anybody could give me their recommendations from the three, or any other book, it would be much appreciated.
