Following on from Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir’s magisterial work Root Islamic Education, which made the case for the importance of the Madinah of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in the first three generations, the practice embodied there and the fatwas and new judgements reached in it, Diwan Press has been at the forefront in publishing works from this tradition, foremost among which is the Muwatta of Imam Malik, as well as numbers of works from the earliest years and comparatively recent times, such as those of Shaykh Uthman dan Fodio.

A classical approach to the study of fiqh begins with the Mukhtasar of al-Akhdari, proceeds to al-Murshid al-Mu’een, whose text in Arabic and English translation and a very substantial commentary – Islam in the School of Madinah – are in this section, and then concluding with the Risalah of Ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani, available here in English and in a bi-lingual edition.
