Fiqh of Inheritance Text for Beginners

Salam

InshAllah we hope to roll out in the near future a beginners course on the Islamic rules of Inheritance, an area which receives little attention amongst those who attend study circles and surrounding which there are a number of misconceptions.

Alhumdulillah we have prepared the first draft of a translation of a text on this science which was authored for novices by the great Meccan scholar, Shaykh Hasan al-Mashat.  Shaykh Hasan designed this work to be a gentle introduction to this field, and focuses his attention on forty scenarios of inheritance.

The draft translation has been supplemented with tables adapted from the commentary of Shaykh Muhsin al-Musawa who was a student of the author himself.

The image above is of copy of this text we were grateful to receive recently, which was printed in the lifetime of the author  (1976).

Prayers are requested for the successful delivery of these workshops and utilising of this Mubarak text.

Wassalam

Mawlid Mecca 2015

Above is a picture taken at a mawlid in Mecca at the home of Sidi Fuad Ibrahim Usta in the month of Rabi al Awwal 2015.

In the distance on the left you can just about make out the current principal of the Sawlatiyyah school Shaykh Majid Rehmatullah.

I managed to have a brief conversation with him after the mawlid during which he clarified that the Sawlatiyyah is not aligned to either the Deobandi nor Barelwi schools of the subcontinent.

Alhumdulillah it was a beautiful event with some talented young munshids in attendance.

I have some recordings of the gathering but multiple attempts to upload here have been unsuccessful unfortunately.
