Authored by Imam as-San’ani, Subul as-Salam is a classical commentary on one of the great hadith collections pertaining to Islamic Jurisprudence by the great hadith scholar al-Hafidh ibn Hajar al-Asqalani.
The Consensus of the Scholars of Jurisprudence
In this work, ibn Mundhir, relates all those points of Islamic Jurisprudence which all the scholars have agreed on.
About Ibn Mundhiar:
Adh-Dhahabi said, “The unique scholar of hadith and jurisprudence, and the Shaykh of the Haram, the one who authored books, the likes of which have never been written.”
An-Nawawi said, “The famous imam and one of the imams of Islam. Everyone has agreed to the fact that he was an imaam, virtuous, and very knowledgeable both in the field of hadith and fiqh…He is at the highest level of knowledge when it comes to which hadiths are authentic and which ones are weak.”
As-Subki said, “The imaam, Abu Bakr an-Nisaaboori, the one who resided in Makkah and one of the great scholars of this Nation. He was an imaam, a mujtahid, a haafidh, and extremely pious.”
Ibn Hajar said, “The hafidh, the great scholar, the author of many works. He was upright and truthful from what I know.”
Ibn Khalkaan said, “He was a faqih and an absolute scholar.”
