Acquiring one’s Deen from reliable and authentic sources

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am currently studying a degree in religion and have been looking at the Siyasat Namah. After reading lots of different sources on the text I have come to a stand still and have no clue where to go with my writing. I’m wondering if you could give me some guidance or advice. The question I wish to ask is whether the Mirrors for Princes text is relevant for Islamic Law/Shariah?


A: We have not come across these books. Hence, we cannot comment.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
