Zaad al-Mustaqni’

Out of curiosity I recently bought a pocket version of the small -and famous – Hanbali fiqh text for beginners Zaad al-Mustaqni’

زاد المستقنع (in short)

by al-imam Moosaa bin Ahmad bin Moosaa for only 2,50 euros. The publisher of this small pocket book is Dar al Salam ( The full title of this book is:

زاد المستقنع في اختصار المقنع (Zaad al-Mustaqni’ fi Ikhtisaari’l-Muqnii’)

by Moosaa bin Ahmad bin Saalim al-Maqdisi Sharif ud-din Abi an-Najaa. The book doesn’t give the full name, after an-Najaa his name is Moosaa bin Ahmad al-Hajjawi. This book can be downloaded as a PDF-file – with tashkeel!! – here:
In the very short Muqaddimah (introduction) we can read that this text is a mukhtasar (summary) of the fiqh of al-imam al-Muwaffaq Abi Muhammad (Ibn Qudaamah) of the Hanbali madhhab; the book al-Muqni’. The book is very popular amongst Salafis.
Here: you can read a nice book review on this book by brother Abu Qutaybah from UK.
There are a couple of shurooh (explanations) of this text:
1.) الروض المربع شرح زاد المستقنع : ar-Rawda al-Murbi’ Sharh Zaad al-Mustaqni’ by al-Buhuti and the Hashiyat (commentary) by ‘Abdu’r-Rahman Qasim; both books can be downloaded here:
2.) Sharh al-Mumti’ by shaykh Bin al-‘Uthaymin, which is said to be a masterpiece. This book (15 vols.) can be downloaded here:
On the website of the German/Saudi brother Neil bin Radhan one can listen to recorded lessons (in German) on Zaad al-Mustaqni’, check here:

  1. Asalamoalaykum warahmatullah,

    JazakAllahu khayran for all the useful information that you’ve shared akhi.

    I tried accessing the last two weblinks in your post but they seem broken or don’t lead to anything. Would it be possible if you could please fix these esp. the one leading to ‘introduction to Zaad al Mustaqni’?

    BarakAllahu feekum.
