Shifā of Qāḍī ‘Iyāḍ

Al-Qādi ‘Iyāḍ (d. 544 AH) was a Spanish-Maliki jurist, hadith expert, and judge. His fame is well known throughout the Muslim world and his contributions to the Islamic sciences are virtually unmatched. One of his greatest works is the Shifā’ (the Healing), which is an encyclopedic work discussing the greatness of Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and give him peace) and the rights that belong to him from us as his community. This class takes a summary approach to the book, rather than a line-by-line reading.
