Shorter Abridgment Al-Mukhtasar Al-Saghir

Abdullah b. Abd al-Rahman BaFadl




An English Translation of al-Mukhtasar al-Saghir


Imam BaFadl wrote al-Muqaddimah al-Hadramiyyah, and this abridgment al-Mukhtasar al-Saghir, for students of knowledge at Qubah Abu Murayyam in Tarim, Yemen. After completing the memorization of the Holy Qur'an, students would generally begin their studies in the subject of fiqh. Imam BaFadl composed these works to simplify and facilitate this endeavour.
