*Exclusive Excerpt from Imam Abu Hanifa's al-Fiqh al-Akbar Explained*
[Qārī] All that is soundly transmitted about the prophets which may indicate falsehood or disobedience should be distanced from their apparent meaning. Otherwise, the occurrence has to be considered as their leaving the more preferred position, or as having occurred before prophethood.
The Prophets are Free from Sins
Exclusive Excerpt from Imam Abu Hanifa's al-Fiqh al-Akbar Explained
Compiled and Translated by Shaykh Abdur-Rahman Ibn Yusuf
This translation of Al-Fiqh al-Akbar is an unprecedented contribution to the subject of 'aqida in English. A lucid rendering, unhampered by sterile literalism, it draws on a number of commentaries to unlock a subject that has been largely inaccessible to an English readership. This is due both to the subject's complexity and the lack of reliable works in English. Combining Maghnisawi's basic commentary with copious notes carefully selected from 'Ali al-Qari's super-commentary and the entire Kitab al-Wasiyya of Abu Hanifa, this edition promises to be an essential guide on the intellectual and rewarding journey through Islamic creed.
