Islamic Laws by His Eminence al-Sayyid Ali
New combined edition of Volumes 1 and 2.
The World Federation is pleased to present the community with a new edition of Islamic Laws. Beautifully printed and bound in hardback, this third edition combines Volume One (Ritual Acts of Worship) and Volume Two (Transactions).
This book is not only a high-quality translation of the Tawdih al-Masa’il of His Eminence al-Sayyid Ali al-Husayni al-Sistani, it is also a well-researched piece of work with helpful footnotes and numerous clarifications in square brackets. Supported by a glossary of legal terms and an appendix featuring a table of weights and measurements, these extra features will allow readers to gain a better understanding of the rulings.
The third edition of Islamic Laws includes revisions made by the translator, Shaykh Mohammed Ali Ismail, since the publication of the second edition.
“This is not just a simple translation of the Tawdih al-Masa’il. It is a lucid and accurate rendition that displays a high level of expertise of the discipline and skill of language. With his erudite annotations and glosses, Shaykh Mohammed Ali Ismail has skilfully managed to present the rulings of His Eminence al-Sayyid al-Sistani in a clear and effective manner. Arguably, this is a key work of fiqh in the English language for those who are not jurists but wish to perform their worship and conduct their lives based on authentic sources.”

Director of Research, Islamic Centre of England

"This is a scholarly work that is not only written in clear English but adopts a new, user-friendly approach to understanding the rulings in the Tawdih al-Masa’il. I highly recommend it and commend Shaykh Mohammed Ali Ismail and the project team for producing so much more than another translation of al-Sayyid al-Sistani’s Tawdih al-Masa’il."
