Understanding Usul Al-Fiqh by Abu Tariq Hilal & Abu Ismael Al-Beirawi

Due to the intellectual decline that befell the Muslim Ummah during the last few centuries various confusions exist today regarding Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh). Most of these relate to misunderstanding subjects related to the principles and foundations of jurisprudence (Usul al-Fiqh). Different extremes exist today where some Muslims look at evidences from the Qur’an and Sunnah and attempt to interpret them without having the necessary framework to extract the correct meanings.

This book aims to clarify key subjects that establish the framework of Islamic juristic thinking.
