Some possibly beneficial resources for those teaching Usul ash-Shashi:

Middle Eastern Prints of the book:

1- Dar al-Gharb al-Islami, edited by Sh. Akram an-Nadwi- possibly the most authentic edition.

3- Dar Ibn Kathir, with Ahsan al-Hawashi of al-Laknawi

4- Dar al-Faruq al-A’zam, with Ahsan al-Hawashi of al-Laknawi.

Printed Arabic Commentaries:

1- ash-Shafi ala Usul ash-Shashi of Wali ad-Din al-Farfur, Dar al-Farfur Damascus.

2- Ma’dan al-Wusul of Safi ibn Nusayr ar-Rumi, Maktabah Habibiyyah Peshawar.

3- Fusul al-Hawashi, common in both India and Pakistan.

4- Tashil Usul ash-Shashi of Ml. Anwar Badakhshani, Idarah al-Quran, Karachi.

  1. Turath is working on a complete translation of Usul ash Shashi. When it will be released, I don’t know. Given Turath’s propensity to take forever in their translations, I estimate in the next five years.

  2. Assalamu Alaykum,

    I was wondering if Mufti Saheb, or anyone else could help me find Fusulul Hawashi? A PDF of it, if not a website to get the actual kitaab, insha Allah.

    Jazaakumullahu Khairan
