This is absolutely the best book that outlines what is permissible or not in Islam. This is a must-have for all Muslims.

Just a note: there are a couple points where differences in views exist. In one or two of them, he takes a weaker view, but overall, if you are a muslim and you dont have this book, you should be clicking on the buy button

Don't get me wrong, this is a great book on Islamic Jurisprudence but I felt like Author could of dealt with 21st century issues more than the laws which aren't really applicable anymore... like details about Prophet Muhammad's (saw) war-booty share, etc.

Author talked about Islamic way of insurances but what if there is no way of getting them where you live. I was also looking forward to learning more about interests on Mortgage payments when you can't afford to buy a house on cash. Also I wasn't really convinced with Fiqh on Meat while Halal Meat is pretty much available everywhere.

Apart from these and some similar personal issues with the book, you should at least read it once to understand the Rulings better especially living in a non-Islamic country.

First of all, i think it goes without saying that this book is a must have for all muslims, and can probably actually be a good read for non-muslims or for those people curious about fiqh issues in islam... the author, who is verifiably one of the leading islamic scholars of his time, is very careful and balanced in his approach often referring to the views of other reputable scholars even in instances where their opinions contradict his own ... i recommend this book to pretty much any category of knowledge seeker... it is definitely interesting if nothing else ...

This book is very good to explain right from wrong the way God taught us by the example of his last messenger - Muhammad of Arabiyyah. The writer of this book learned Islam at alAzar University in Cairo, Egypt.

You will learn that fornication (zina) is haraam (punishable sin). You will learn that alcohol and gambling are abominations of Shaytaan (Satan). You will learn that the woman may wear gold but the man is forbidden to wear the gold; it is haraam for the man to wear the gold because it is like a hot burning coal from the hellfire on is skin.

You will learn that if the man cannot keep from the zina, then he must get a wife. With the wife is halaal (permissable), without the wife is sin.

The Christian will benefit from reading this book too. Many things that God told to Christians, God also told to Muslims.

This book is very good to know about Islam; another good book is by Abdalati and the title is Islam in Focus. After a Muslim reads these two books and reads translation of Quran, then he will know his and her religion. Too many Muslims do not know about Islam.
