al-Murshid al-Mu’in

Last Sunday (Nov. 1) I started an online (free) course on the Maliki fiqh text called: “al-Murshid al-Mu’in” which can be translated as “The Guiding Helper” by Ibn ‘Ashir rahimahullah, given by ustadh Abdusshakur Brooks from The Medina Way, link: http://www.themedinaway.com/site/  I studied part of the Mukhtasar al-Akhdari with him online before (last year).

Here are some links and documents related to that text for those interested:

http://zaytuna.org/ibnashirbook.asp  A translation by Hamza Yusuf that still needs to be published

– Videos on You Tube and other websites: http://video.google.nl/videosearch?hl=nl&source=hp&q=Ibn+Ashir&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=gcL2Sv3sGI3T-QbCuqT6DQ&sa=X&oi=video_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4&ved=0CCMQqwQwAw#  (Mainly in French)

– The text and recitation can be bought and downloaded for a very cheap price on the website of Abdullah bin Hamid Ali: http://www.lamppostproductions.com/catalog/18/downloads

There used to be a website with the name The Guiding Helper but it is offline / not functioning anymore.
