The Heavenly Ornaments (Behishti Zewar)

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Abdurrahman ibn Yusuf Mangera

Should I take any teachings from the above resource if I am trying to learn Hanafi Fiqh. Please tell me the ruling on this.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamu alaykum

In the name of Allah the Inspirer of truth

The Heavenly Ornaments [Beheshti Zewar] is definitely a reliable book on Hanafi Fiqh. The English translation (by Maulana Mohammady, South Africa, available from www.al-rashad.com) can be considered the most accessible and detailed book on the Hanafi school at present.

It does include many other subjects and some details that may not be considered useful in the West but that does not reduce the overall benefit of the book. One can ignore the details that relate to customs of the subcontinent and study the extensive juridical rulings contained in it. Many scholars have been known to refer to the manual for quick answers.

And Allah knows best.
