al-Hawi li ‘l-Fatawi li ‘l-Imam al-Suyuti

A book of fatawa by Imam Suyuti rahimahullah with many controversial and still relevant issues like mawlid, loud group dhikr, the hadra and the tasbih, to name a few, and much more; on almost each (still) controversial (in the sense of the debates between Salafis and Sufis to put it simply) topic one can think of he has a fatwa. Download here: al-Hawi li’l-Fatawi as-Suyuti (410 pp.) The quality of the copy/print is rather poor though but it is still beneficial.

  1. Is the name of this kitab ‘al hawi lil fatawi’ or ‘al hawi lil fatawa’. Im just a bit confused seeing the name being said in different ways. Jazakumullahu khair

  2. Wa iyyakum brother.

    If you look at the title on the cover in Arabic you can read a kasrah on the letter waw (because of li) followed by a letter ya. It is fatawi as a consequence. W’Allahu ‘alam bi sawab.

  3. From Taj al-‘Arus:

    ( والفتياو الفتوى ) بضمهما ( وتفتح ) أي الاخيرة ( ما أفتى به الفقيه ) في مسألة قال الراغب هو الجواب عما يشك فيه من الاحكام وقال الجوهرى هما اسمان من أفتى واقتصر على ضم الفتيا وفتح الفتوى وفى المصباح الفتوى بالواو 3 تفتح وتضم اسم من أفتى العالم إذا بين الحكم ويقال أصله من الفتى وهو الشاب القوى والجمع الفتاوى بكسر الواو على الاصل وقيل يجوز الفتح للتخفيف

    • Great. Now we have to change the title again! :)

      Jzk Ali for that research. I’m so glad that this website can become a forum for such useful discussions. I’m going to change the title back to how Sidi had originally posted it.
