As salamu alaikum rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu can you please tell me Insha Allah what’s the first book you recommend someone to read that is new to the or is trying to learn the hanbali madhhab barakallahu feek
Walaikumussalam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
The main thing is to find a good teacher to teach you a book in the Fiqh that you wish to study. So you can follow classes for any simple text in Hanbali Fiqh, such as ‘Umdat al-Fiqh, ‘Umdat al-Talib, Akhsar al-Mukhtasarat, or Bidayatu-l Abid.
This answer was collected from The Hanbali Madhhab website. The answers to the questions are given by Imam Zahed Fattah in accordance to the Hanbali School of Jurisprudence.
