Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd said in al-Madkhal al-Mufassal,
Zād al-Mustaqnī’ fī Ikhtisār al-Muqni’ is the text that came to be
considered as the main source for the study of the Hanbalī madhab
(school of jurisprudence) and quintessential for the students in the
land of the Hanābilah (i.e. the Arabian Peninsula); particularly in the
region of Najd. The people busied themselves reading, memorising and
writing commentaries upon this book. This was carried out in study
circles in the masājid where the scholars imparted knowledge to others
and also in formal learning institutions. This book was studied in-depth
so much so that some scholars provided explanations just upon the
phrases within it so as to make it easy for the new learner. This was
expanded to include proofs and evidences for those in the intermediate
level. In the levels thereafter, proofs and evidences were fused with
the disputes that exist within the madhab and in comparison to the other
madhabs. Some scholars said:
The texts of Zād and Bulūgh,
Suffice for one to attain genius.
They indicated through this [the importance of] Zād al-Mustaqni’ with
regards to the study of fiqh and Bulūgh al-Marām with regards to the
study of hadīth.
No book as exemplary has been authored since it that contains as many
important points (muhimāt) and issues (masā’il) as Zād. In fact, Zād
excelled in terms of quantity and content. It is said that there are
approximately three thousand important points and issues mentioned and
similarly another three thousand inferred from the text. Meaning that it
possesses within it around six thousand issues.
This is what we heard from some of the noble scholars of the madhab in
our time. While [in the current time] the students of knowledge transmit
from some of the contemporary scholars that the number of issues in Zād
goes beyond thirty thousand. Thus one should not avoid it.
