Is there an English version of the book on salah, or do know anyone who is translating one?

Its actually questions he responded to between 1993 and 2007, not 1997. It says this in the intro.

May Allah bless your efforts.

The book 'Ahkam as-Salah' by Sheikh Ali Raghib which was aided by Sheikh Taqi ud-deen an-Nabhani has been translated into english.

The book by Abu Iyas is quite big, a few hundred pages and would be a feat to translate.

salam:
whom should i follow:

salah by Sheikh Ali Ragheb
or salah by sheikh abu Iyas


both have many differences
is sheikh abu Iyas follower of Nabhani fiqh?

wassalam

Salam,

You can follow any mujtahid you trust in the matter of salah. If you have already adopted through taqleed then you cannot change unless you come to trust the opinion of another mujtahid is stronger than what you are following. Please refer to the book 'The Islamic Personality Volume 1', the chapter on Changing from one opinion to another for further details on this.

Sheikh Abu Iyas is an independent Mujtahid who adopts the same Usul as Sheikh Nabhani thus differs with some of his opinions.

Salaam, I have a question about missed salah which I could not find in the book, was hoping somebody might know. If I missed Jummah (through my own stupidity), do I have to make up 2 Rakahs or 4 (i.e. Dhuhr)?

Islamic Revival said...

You should make up four as jummah is a collective prayer that cannot be made up individually

The links of book "Selected Fiqhi Issues" have expired. Pleas upload them somewhere else like file-wire.net or any other site to make them available. I desperately need them. Please.
May Allah SWT reward you.
