The text of this treatise is a translation of “The Book Of Fasting” from the book “al-Fiqh al-Muyassar.”
Shaykh Ṣāliḥ Āl al-Shaykh said about this book in his introduction:
“This book comprises of Fiqh rulings pertaining to the acts of worship and dealings, along with their evidences from the noble Book and the authentic Prophetic Sunnah.”
He also stated:
“Its wording is clear and its style is simple, so that the students of knowledge can benefit from it and other than them from the general Muslims.
The precision of its categorization and the ease in benefiting from its subject matter, and this is achieved through the headings, which indicate the content and aid to understand it.”
These are some of the reasons we decided to translate this book for the English reader, may Allāh allow us and you to benefit from it.
We have added some questions at the end of each chapter to enable the student to test their understanding.
