This blog is dedicated to the ‘Mukhtassar Al Akhdari’ (The Abridgement of imam al-Akhdari), one of the primary text, in the maliki madhab (the school of imam Malik Ibn Anas).

Summary :

This text is written by Abdur Rahman Al-Akhdari a famous Maliki scholar of the 10th century A.H. This text covers purification of the heart, ritual purification and prayer. It also covers an extensive section on “how to correct the prayer” when one makes a mistake which is a vital to arriving with certainty towards “perfecting the prayer”.


Mukhtasar Al-Akhdari provides the beginner with the fundamental obligatory knowledge of fiqh along with some very useful principles of fiqh that make it easy for the student to conceptualize legal rulings and make them easy to memorize. It starts with the chapter of purifying the heart which helps students to prepare themselves  properly for acquiring outward knowledge. The extensive detail covered concerning correcting the prayer gives the student a strong sense of certainty about how to conduct prayer properly both under normal and abnormal circumstances. The benefit of this book is that it instructs the student in the foundational aspects of both inward and outward conduct according to the shari’ah.
