This contemporary translation makes the Hidayah—the 800-year-old multivolume work used by Muslim jurists to issue Islamic-law rulings—accessible to the English-speaking world. The Hidayah is arguably the most widely read book of Islamic jurisprudence in the Muslim world and is used as a primary text in Islamic schools and seminaries. An introduction by the translator contextualizes Islamic law and explores the nuances of its legal reasoning while a glossary of key and technical terms, a commentary, and a comprehensive index ensure that all readers can navigate this translation's technical legal vocabulary.
