This commentary is meant to be precise and short. The authors intent as expressed in his opening statements is to "Explain the terminologies, expound its benefit, while trotting the middle path". As such this is perhaps one of the best and most refined commentaries on the Zubad. You won't be lost in it as it is not detailed and meant to explain terminologies and or idioms. .  


This print contains background study of the various commentaries of the Zubad as well as the historic importance of the text book. Also the editor adds some additional and benefical notes about the lifes of both authors. He relied on this print for the Mustafa al-Babi al-Halabi 3rd edition of 1357 hijri. The repeated words in bolded and bracketed text is the text book. He also adds some additional notes in the footnote with complete Takhrij here and there. Some of the terminologies are further annotated by the editor from the popular Shafi'i fiqh works like the Tuhfat al-Tullab, al-Minhaj and Tuhfat al-Habib. He has also relied mostly on the another two commentaries of this text book which is Ghayat al-Bayan and Ifadat al-Sadah.
