In this course the first part of the important book Al-Manhaj al-Aḥmad fī Dar°I al-Mathālib allatī tunmā l-Madhhab al-Imām Aḥmad, by Shaykh ‘Abd Allāh bin Ṣafwān al-Qadūmī, is taught by Shaykh Yūsuf b. Ṣādiq Al-Ḥanbalī.
In this book the author responds to certain issues in fiqh and ‘aqīdah that in his time were falsely attributed to the Ḥanbalī Madhhab. He clarifies these issues at length, in doing so showing the correct stances of the traditional Ḥanbalī madhhab. In essence he responded to certain positions of Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah that that can’t be attributed to the madhab including: the issue of three divorces, visiting the grave of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ and others related to the ‘aqā°id of the Ḥanābilah.
This is a very important course for students of the Ḥanbalī Madhhab who want to learn about the correct positions of the authentic Ḥanbalī Madhhab regarding certain sensitive issues in fiqh and ‘aqīdah; and how its scholars responded and dealt with the opinions of shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah. It is an especially relevant course due to some cults still clinging to his position in these matters, perceiving them to be positions that represent the Madhhab.
This is the first part of a two-part series that will cover the entire book. This part will focus on the fiqh related issues, while the second part will focus on the issues of ‘aqīdah.
This course has ended, completion is through recordings.
