Rashahat al-Aqlam Sharh Kifayat al-Ghulam by ‘Abd al-Ghani al-Nablusi

Full name of the book is Rashahat al-Aqlam sharh Kifayat al-Ghulam ‘ala Madhhab al-Imam al-A’zam Abu Hanifah al-Nu’man by ‘Allamah ‘Abd al-Ghani ibn Isma’il al-Nablusi.

Editing was done by Ilyas Qablan, who was edited several other works by famous Hanafi scholars. The book is a short work on Hanafi jurisprudence and theology in versified form. The poem, also Nablusi’s, is called Kifayat al-Ghulam. The text begins with ‘aqidah and finishes with the ‘ibadat, completing the nazm in approximately 150 lines. In other words, the book covers the essentials of Islam, namely the five pillars of Islam.

At the end, there is an interesting chapter on the issue of iktilaf al-matali’ (global vs. local moon-sighting) and moon-sighting based on astronomical calculations added by the editor.
