Islamic Laws


The third edition of Islamic Laws combines both Volumes One (Ritual Acts of Worship) and Two (Transactions), covering a wide range of important rulings about Muslim life, such as prayers, fasting and marriage.


This latest edition of this well-researched piece of work, annotated and translated by Shaykh Mohammed Ali Ismail, also contains helpful footnotes and numerous clarifications. This is further supported by a glossary of legal terms and an appendix featuring a table of weights and measurements. These extra features allow readers to gain a better understanding of the rulings.

Thus, this book helps provide practical answers and solutions. Topics covered include social interactions and medical issues, as well as work and investment.
