Detailed description of Salaah with evidences for the Hanafi Madhab
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Often these days we hear people making ignorant claims about the Madhaahib, and the Hanafi Madhab in particular, that the A’immah did not have a basis for many of their rulings, and some rulings were based on weak or even fabricated narrations and other such false accusations.
Because of this, some `Ulamaa had taken it upon themselves to shed some light on just one issue which is possibly the most commonly spoken about, and that is Salaah.
What follows are three books written in english on the subject.
1: The Salah of a Believer by Shaykh Riyadhul Haq – Download as PDF.
This book mentions each posture of salaah alongside the ahaadeeth which are reported concerning it, as well as the authenticity level of each narration according to the Muhadditheen.
2: Fiqh al-Imam by Mufti Abdur Rahman Mangera – Download as PDF.
This book deals with each aspect of the salaah, focusing more on the understanding of the Ahaadeeth which have been narrated regarding it.
3: Authenticity of Salah by Shaykh Muhammad Ilyas Faisal – Download as PDF.
This is a short book which deals with salaah limiting it just to the ahaadeeth for the sake of brevity.
All in all these three books are sufficient for anyone to see the amount of research and effort that the `Ulamaa had done when they gave a ruling on any particular matter.
May Allaah grant us all the understanding.
