The Jawhar al-Tawhid is amongst those works that have had instant fame and acceptance even in the times of the author; Imam al-Laqani. It was a simple work written in a poetical form that was meant for students to memorise the basic aspects of one's faith. The book has seen many commentaries and amongst one of its earliest commentary is the authors son.

Jawharat al-Tawhid, translated as The Gem of Islamic Theology, is one of the approved and accredited texts of the Sunni Creed in the Ashari school. Written as a poem to facilitate memorizing it and to make it more enjoyable and appealing for young students. This was a method widely used to teach and convey knowledge in the past and is still used in some schools till today. It was composed by Imam Ibrahim al-Laqani al-Maliki (1041 H) upon a gesture from his Sufi mentor. Due to its high value and wide acceptance, many commentaries were written to elaborate and explain the meanings it had within. 

This commentary; Tuhfatul Murid ala Jawharatul Tawhid or Hashiyat al-Bajuri as it is widely known is by the most relied on commentary of the Jawharat. It has very clear explanation and mentions various opinions that differ each other by the expert in this field.


This print is re edited and republished with extensive notes and explanations rendered from other major commentaries. The editor, Shaykh Ahmed al-Azhari is a well grounded scholar and researcher well equipped in this field.


He is ash-Shaykh Abd al-Salam bin Ibrahim bin Ibrahim al-Laqani, the Maliki Jurist, the shaykh of the Malakiyah of his day. He was born in 971. He was a philosopher, a Sufi and a ascetic Jurist.

He was also popularly known in most of his work refer him as al-Bayjuri however the correct version is al-Bajuri. Early on he excelled in the qur'an and then moved on to al-Azhar wherein he studied with many of its scholars. He become one of Azhars deans and headed there for a quite a time. Imam al-Bajuri studied with some of the most prominent scholars of his time, these included: 

    *** Muhammad al-Amir al-Kabir al-Maliki, (d.1817),
    *** 'Abdullah al-Sharqawi al-Shafi'i, Shaykh al-Azhar 1793-1812 (d.1812),

He taught many of its prestigious students. Imam al-Bajuri is also know as a prolific author who penned many commentaries supra commentaries. Over 20 completed works are listed to have been attributed to al-Bajuri not to mention a further 6 unfinished works. Sufism [tasawwuf] is treated in al-Bajuri's theological and legal works, especially in his Tuhfat al-murid. This list of his works includes his commentary on the Burda - a poem covering the biography [sira] of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, from a decidedly sufi perspective and commentaries on Ibn Hajr al-Haytami's [d.974/ 1566-67] and Ahmed al-Dardir's [d. 1201/1786] works on the Birthday [Mawlid] of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. The latter is really a subject of jurisprudence, but is also tied to tasawwuf, as Sufis are often the most active proponents of Mawlid Celebrations.
