The Ship of Salvation (Safinat al-Naja) - The Doctrine and Jurisprudence of the School of al-Imam al-Shafii: A classical manual of Islamic doctrine an (Paperback)
This book has been prepared for the beginner, especially those students studying at a "madrasah". Many Arabic terminologies have been maintained with the translation in the bracket. Footnotes provide assistance for teacher in explaining the text. The students are required to be familiar with the text of Safīnat al-najāʾ. It is better if the students can memorize the Arabic text so that they gain acquaintance with the jurisprudence or at least be able to read it fluently.
Every effort was made to present a precise and accurate translation with proper explanations. The explanations were mostly derived from "Kāshifat al-sajāʾ sharh Safīnat al-najāʾ", "Umdatus Salik - Reliance of the Traveller" and "al-Iqnāʿ fī halli alfāẓi matn Abī Shujāʿ".
The additional chapter of Ḥajj and ʿUmrah was taken from the "Al-Fiqh al-manhaji ʿalā madhhab al-Imām al-Shāfiʿī, " and "Reliance of the Traveller".The measurements and conversions were based on the book, "al-Maqādīr al-sharʿiyyah" by Dr. Najm al-dīn al-Kurdī. The biographical notes were taken from the book, "Reliance of the Traveller".
