Zād al Mustaqniʿ

Imām al Ḥajjāwi

Ḥanbali Fiqh:
Intermediate: Term 5 

Written by Mūsā al Ḥajjāwi (d.968h), Zād al Mustaqni' is an abridgement of Ibn Qudāmah's al Muqni'. Scholars of the Ḥanbali school of thought accepted al Ḥajjāwi's work to such an extent that some observed that its memorisation and understanding made one fit to serve as a judge. For those who studied Manhaj al Sālikīn with us, this text serves as the next level up in fiqh studies. It can be studied by beginners as well if they have some familiarity with fiqh studies.

UPDATE: 1/12/21:

We have now completed the Book of Funerals and Zakāh and will now begin The Book of Fasting starting on Tuesday the 7th of December. Hence, it is an ideal opportunity to join the class as we are starting a new chapter. We only have 3 weeks left of this term, hence the registration fees are quite nominal (£10).

Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at students who have already studied fiqh before. It is not suitable for students who have never studied fiqh before. Knowledge of Arabic is not essential but desired. Please note, this text is based on the Ḥanbali school of thought and that is what will be taught. It is not a class in comparative fiqh. 

How long is the course for?

This class is an open-ended class and so there is no fixed completion date unlike the other classes. However, we anticipate that it will take over a year to finish the section of worship. We will be resuming the class from the section: Combining Prayers.

Mondays, 8-10pm GMT

Resuming: 7/9/21 for 

Duration 16 Weeks 


There will be weekly assessments assigned. They will be short multiple choice assessments and will be reviewed at the beginning of each class. 

Is live attendance mandatory?

No, although it highly encouraged. If a student misses a class they can view the recording for the lesson on the student portal. Please note, each recording will remain on the student portal for 2 weeks only. We do not provide lifetime access to our classes as we expect students to view the classes on a a regular basis and complete the course within the term time. 

Course Fees

The term last for 16 weeks (2 hours of live classes per week). The entire term costs £70 (£60 with the early bird discount). We try to keep our prices low and believe that our fees are very low compared to most online institutions. 

UPDATE: Registration fees for the last three lessons is only £10

How are the classes delivered?

The classes are delivered live via Zoom using high quality audio and visuals. The classes are interactive allowing students to ask questions via audio and a chat box. Moreover, the class will have a dedicated Telegram channel allowing students to engage with the teacher throughout the duration of the course. The teacher will read from the Arabic text as well as the translation of the text. 

Topcis & Objectives

The aim is to complete the entire text by the will of Allāh ﷻ. This term will start from the beginning of the Book of Funerals.

The aim of the class is for students to have a firm grasp of the masāʾil of fiqh according to the Ḥanbali school. By doing so, a student will have the foundations to develop a deeper understanding of the principles and philosophy of Islamic Law.

Student Portal

The student portal will contain:

  • Links for the classes

  • Resources

  • Assessments 

  • Recordings of lessons.

Who will teach the course?

The course will be delivered by the founder of Tawfīq Online Learning, Alomgir Ali, a graduate of al Azhar University (BA Islamic Law) who also possesses a BA in Arabic and English.
