It helps to refine one's understanding of the Creator, messengers, and divine communication, and enables one, moreover, to gain insight into the realities of this life and the events of the life hereafter. Al-Fiqh al-Akbar adds nuance to one's understanding of 'aqida and deepens one's appreciation of his or her beliefs, and addresses head-on questions that, if unanswered, could leave invidious doubt and cause communal division: "Where is Allah?
A lucid rendering, unhampered by sterile literalism, it draws on a number of commentaries to unlock for the general English-speaking readership a subject that has been largely inaccessible to them, both because of the subject's complexity and the lack of reliable works in English.
This definitive edition, combining Maghnisawi's basic commentary with numerous notes carefully selected from 'AlI al-Qari's super-commentary and the entire Kitab al-Wasiyya of Abu Hanifa, is the English reader's essential guide on the intellectual and rewarding journey through Islamic creed.

Verified Purchase. The actual book might have been quite short without the explanations. It has been arranged perfectly broken down in chapters and each sentence from original manuscript is included in both Arabic and in English red. The commentary explanations in black will be of high value to any reader amateur or advanced.
Highly recommended. A high quality kindle version is requested from the publishers in future. Very good explanations of Quoted hadiths. Any looking to learn more about the Hanafi Fiqh would be missing out without having this book for further learning. It will serve as a reference at any gicen time so add it to your library!
Stop it! Likening Allahu Subhana wa ta'ala to his Creation is Kufr! This book is a must for Hanafi's. As soon as this book came to my house, I shuffled through the pages to see what the book actually contains. It contains things that make you cry for not being a true follower. It also makes you happy for the things you actually do follow. The Hanafi Fiqh is the biggest in the world and this must be read by all. Very good for a student who is studying the Deen.

Born to a Muslim family in Kufa ,  Abu Hanifa is known to have travelled to the Hejaz region of Arabia in his youth, where he studied under the most renowned teachers in Mecca and Medina at the time. Rather His hand is a divine attribute, and we do not discuss how it is; His wrath and His pleasure are divine attributes, and we do not discuss how they are. He is also considered a renowned Islamic scholar and personality by Sunni Muslims. His ancestry is generally accepted as being of Persian origin as suggested by the etymology of the names of his grandfather Zuta and great-grandfather Mah. The widely accepted opinion, however, is that most probably he was of Persian ancestry. In , al-Mansur , the Abbasid monarch offered Abu Hanifa the post of Chief Judge of the State, but he declined the offer, choosing to remain independent.
