This is a good basic text on personal obligations according to the Shafi'i school of jurisprudence. It is a slim volume that is handy to carry around as a refernce. I would suggest it as a text book for a beginners class, hoping the instructor will fill in the many details. There are additional sections on spirituality in the end which are important for the average reader to be exposed to. This should revive the principle of tolerance that is pervasive in Islamic teachings and history.

This book is a must for a student of Islamic jurisprudence. It is a classical text written by Imam Nawawi and translated by Shaykh Nuh, a modern shafi'i scholar who represents the traditional islamic scholarship. This book is the basic text for Shafi'i students and is to be complemented with the intermediate shafi'i text also translated by Shaykh Nuh, the Reliance of the Traveller.
