About The Book
Al-Imam al-Subki (765 H) mentioned regarding al-Minhaj of al-Imām al-Nawawi, “In this era, this book is the most excellent book for students and many scholars to understand the madhhab.” There are almost one hundred commentaries of the al-Minhaj. It has been abridged, explained, annotated and versified (compiled in the form of poetry).
The four main commentaries of al-Minhaj are
(1) Tuhfat al-muhtaj by al-Imam Ahmad ibn Ali ibn Hajar al-Haytami al-Makki (974 H),
(2) Nihayat al-muhtaj ila sharh al-Minhaj by al-Imām Shams al-Din Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Hamzah al-Ramli (1004 H),
(3) Mughni al-muhtaj ila ma'rifat al-ma'ani alfaz sharh al-Minhaj by al-Imam Shams al-Dīn Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Khatib al-Shirbini (977 H) which is the current book and
(4) Kanz al-raghibin sharh Minhaj al-talibin by al-Imam Jalal al-Din Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Mahalli (864 H).
Mughni al-muhtaj of Imam al-Khatib al-Shirbini is one of the most read and used as it explains its wordings and idioms as the title indicates whil Ibn Hajrs explanation is more in the area of Fiqh. This is therefore a valuable addition in the library of any serious student and scholar alike.
An excellent GOOD 2006 print the font is very clear to read.
