In a famous hadith, narrated by Imam Bukhari in his Sahih, the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace) said: “Pray as you have observed me pray.”

This course covers the rulings related to actions which precede salat, such as timings, adhan, iqama and preconditions, actions which are part of salat itself and actions which are occasionally performed in salat, such as the sajdah Sahw and Sajdah Tilawah, among other important rulings, such as those in relation to the congregational prayer and the prayer of the traveller. 

This course relies on the Mukhtasar of Imam Abu al-Husayn Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-Quduri al-Baghdadi (d.428AH). Mukhtasar al-Quduri is a well-accepted and celebrated manual of Islamic sacred law based on the Hanafi school. Selected portions from the Kitab al-Salat (Book of Prayer) of Mukhtasar al-Quduri will be covered.

Knowledge of Arabic is not required.
