DETAILED DESCRIPTION

ABOUT THE BOOK:
A collection of 45 letters written by Imam al-Kawthari replying to and or asking questions to al-'Allamah Muhammad Yusuf al-Binnuri. These letters were compiled just before WWII, during WWII and after it spanning over 14 years. Imam al-Kawthari first visited Imam al-Binnuri in 1936 and short after they have been conversing ever since until Imam al-Kawthari passed away.

These letters seemed to be replies of previous written inquiries by Imam al-Binnuri and some are just similar ones to al-Binnuri. The editor has verified the letters, offered commentary on issues related to incidents and added biographies of mentioned individuals be they known or unknown.

Muhammad Zahid ibn Hasan al-Kawthari al-Hanafi al-Ash`ari (1296-1371), the adjunct to the last Shaykh al-Islam of the Ottoman Caliphate and a major Hanafi jurist praised by Imam Muhammad Abu Zahra as a Reviver (mujaddid) of the fourteenth Islamic century.
