Maliki Fiqh: Mukhtasar Al Akhdari

Arkview (Basics)

This class is included in Arkview and Arkview+.

In this course, we will be studying the Mukhtasar of Imam al Akhdari as a continuation of a series of commentaries on books in the Maliki Madhab. This book contains issues which the legally responsible Muslim (mukallaf) must know in terms of purification (tahara), salat (prayer) and miscellaneous issues. This book will be used to explain the issues that were not explained in the previous Maliki Fiqh: Al-Ashmawiyya course along with others that were already covered in the previous course but will now be covered in greater detail. This means that the previous Ashmawiyya course is a prerequisite to taking this one. In addition, there will be supplementary issues which will be covered at a deeper level than outlined in the supplementary videos from the previous course, with a focus on the history of the development of the Maliki Madhab.

By the end of this course, students can expect to:

-Review issues from the Ashmawiyya at an advanced level

-Learn rulings that were not covered in Maliki Fiqh: Al-Ashmawiyya

-Gain a deeper knowledge in the history of the Maliki Madhab

-Benefit from a series of supplementary videos in various topics related to the course and Maliki fiqh in general (e.g. evidence for rulings)
