Shafii fiqh resources

Shafii fiqh resources

The best resources for Shafii fiqh available for English readers are:

The Reliance of the Traveller by Shaykh Nuh Ha Mim Keller

The Maqasid, also by Shaykh Nuh Ha Mim Keller. [f: This is a shorter text that you would do well to begin with.]

A website to ask questions about traditional or contemporary issues in the Shafi’i school is The people who answer the questions here are formally trained, or still are in training, in the shari`ah. You can sign up to receive daily e-mails to your account by going the following link:

You can sign up for Shafi`i fiqh courses that will be taught over this website in the very near future, by a qualified teacher. Having a live person to teach you over the internet is far better than trying to learn by yourself from books.

Although the above resources are very good, there is no comparison to having a live teacher of Shafii fiqh who can answer your questions, and show you an example of how the shari`ah is meant to be used to live life. You might ask around at your local mosque about teachers and see if you can find anyone qualified to teach you.

And Allah knows best.

Shazia Ahmad
