About The Book
Az-Zakah in the Shariah: An Obligatory portion of a particular wealth for a specific group or way. It was made mandatory in Mecca before the Hijrah and its obligations, portions, and receivers were clarified in Medinah. It is one of the Pillars of Islam, so if anyone denies its obligation then he is a disbeliever, because he has disbelieved in Allah(SWT) and His Messenger(SAW).
As-Siyaam (fasting) in the language means "Refraining from a thing". In the legislation it means refraining from food, drink and the rest of the nullifiers from the appearance of the second fajr to the setting of the sun, in worship of Allah, The Mighty and Majestic.
Allah has obligated fasting upon His slaves within every religion. Allah The Exalted has said:
"O You who believe! Fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become pious".
-Surah Al-Baqarah Ayah 183Umdatul Ahkam is a famous text that contains hadith pertaining to juristic rulings (ahkaam) from Bukhari and Muslim written by Imam Abd Al-Ghaniyy Al-Maqdisi similar to Bulugh al Maram, ibn Hajar. 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.Abd al-Ghani al-Maqdisi (d. 600 H) was a classical Sunni Islamic scholar, one of the most prominent Hadith masters of the Hanbali school.
