'Umdatul Ahkam is a famous text that
contains hadith pertaining to juristic rulings (ahkaam) from
Bukhari & Muslim written by Imam Abd Al-Ghaniyy Al-Maqdisi. Like
Bulugh al Maram, ibn Hajar, the author leaves out the chains of narration
and suffices with the name of the Sahabi. The ordering of the chapters
falls in line with the Hanbali fiqh as the author himself was hanbali,
yet despite that many scholars from other schools of thought paid great
attention to this text, such as Ibn Daqeeq al 'Eid and ibn al Mulaqqin.
This book is the explanation of the above mentioned book, which is one of the
best sharh ever written on it as it is classical but concise and not too
detailed. He explained the problematic narrations, supplemented some Hadiths
with others, brought out the wider understanding (Fiqh) of the hadith
as well as combined the views of the Fuqaha.
