الوجيز في فقه السنة والكتاب العزيز
al-Wajiz fi Fiqhil Sunna wal Kitab al-'Aziz

Rajab & Dar al-Fawa'id
the grace and mercy of Allah, there are now a number of introductory compendiums
of fiqh available in various languages.
However, this particular work has unique aspects that have made it a popular
work in its native Arabic language.
author has restricted his foundations for fiqh to the Quran and the authentic
hadith of the Prophet, painstakingly avoiding any of the weak and rejected
hadith that are found in the majority of the books of fiqh. To further ensure
that this work is of the utmost reliability, the author has also restricted his
discussion to what is most directly derived from the Quran and Sunnah and,
therefore, logically above dispute. He has intentionally avoided the numerous
detailed disputes that jurists often engage in, leaving the reader with full
confidence in what the author has written.
This book, albeit
small in comparison with the larger works, has combined together two books.
First, it is a book containing fiqh that takes the hand of the reader and shows
him what he should do. Second it is a book of hadith that displays the
statements and actions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon
him). The combination of these two is a great blessing.
book is sufficient for the one seeking to travels to Allah’s pleasure and will
also satisfy the knowledge seekers; thrist for knowledge. Thus, it is a book
that the people need. I hope that the reader will ponder over it, starting with
its introduction and not neglecting its final words, while acting upon what it
contains between these two
