Nawawi’s Manual of Islam
Imam Yahya Ibn Sharaf Al-Nawawi
Translation and notes by
Nuh Ha Mim Keller
Long sold out in North America, al-maqasid: Nawawi’s Manual of Islam is widely considered the best medium-size handbook available in English for teaching the basics of Islam from a traditional perspective. This new edition has been revised and updated with a full complement of notes on a number of contemporary Muslim issues, and three major essays have been appended. The prayers and invocations given in the text have been fully transliterated and their Arabic texts printed in the back. With its almost one hundred new pages, this second edition includes an extensive subject index that lets readers easily locate the answers they are looking for about Islam.
