Imam ‘Izz al-Din’s Qawa’id al-Ahkam and ‘Allamah ibn ‘Abidin’s Radd al-Muhtar


I recently completed the English translation of Kitab al-Buyu’ [Book of Sales] of ‘Allamah Ibn ‘Abidin’s famous Radd al-Muhtar ‘ala al-Durr al-Mukhtar [Returning the Perplexed to the Chosen Pearl], also known as Fatawa Shamiyyah. It has been published in Malaysia by Islamic Banking and Finance Institute of Malaysia (IBFIM). It is titled Book of Sales.

Previously, IBFIM had published my translation of Imam ‘Izz al-Din ibn ‘Abd al-Salam’s Qawa’id al-Ahkam fi Islah al-Anam [Maxims of Rulings for the Reformation of People], also known as al-Qawa’id al-Kubra [The Great Collection of Legal Maxims] in 2010. It was published as Rules of the Derivation of Laws for Reforming the People.
