In the midst of growing influence of anti-Islamic, anti-natural and naked western culture
and ethos, the need of Islamic way of life is enormous for this material life here in this
world. However, the codes and rulings of shariat, a complete code of life, are based on
the success and development for both the life here and hereafter. Islam has given its
ruling and commandments to all the spheres of our individual and social life. The book
“TALIMUL HAQUE (THE TEACHINGS OF ISLAM)’ is a manual of Islamic worship according
to the Hanafi Fiqh School. It has discusses the basic principle and practices of Islam e.g.
Iman (belief and faith), Salaah (prayer), Saum (fasting), Hajj (Pilgrimage to Makkah
Mukarramah) and Zakat which is also popularly known as “five pillars of Islam”. These
are the basic teachings of Islam which every Muslim must be acquainted with and follow
accordingly before he/she proceed for further duties and rights of Islam. This book has
given a unique explanation on this very topic in details. It also includes decrees and
suggestions about various extraordinary or compacted questions.
The explanation given is in an easy and clear manner in the light and sprit of Qur’an and
Sunnah. Special references of Hanafi viewpoints have been discussed as and where
needed. The book was originally written for the Madrasa students but undoubtedly it is
unique companion for him who is willing to learn the said basic teachings of Islam. In
the last chapter, transliteration of important Arabic text has been added which will
benefit those unfamiliar with the Arabic language or reading of its alphabets. We believe
that this humble effort will benefit the readers in assimilating important teachings of
