Mukhtasar al-Quduri

About the Text

Mukhtasar al-Quduri is one of the most celebrated and influential treatises in any Islamic legal school and is the foundation for the Hanafi school of law. It is both the first source for scholars and a manual for the general reader.

About the Author

The author of Mukhtasar al-Quduri, the Hanafi jurist Abul-Husayn al-Quduri, was born in Baghdad in 362 A.H. / 973 C.E. and died on Sunday 5th Rajab 428 A.H. /1037 C.E. aged 66. Ibn Khallikan, Ibn Kathir, Ibn al-Jawzi (and others) considered him to be an utterly truthful hadith narrator (saduq) – which is a testament to his knowledge and memory in the field of hadith studies. He was one of the verifiers of the most authentic positions (ashab al-tarjih) in the Hanafi school of law, which is one of the highest levels one can attain.
