This book is a translation of Mari b. Yusuf al-Karmi (d.1033/1623) classical Hanbanli law manual, Dalil al-Talib. In 1961 George M. Baroody translated the section of criminal law as part of a Masters thesis. The present work focuses on the sections of worship (Ibadat). It clearly presents the rules and regulations the Muslim community requires for purification, prayer, charity, fasting, pilgrimage an, d welfare. A lengthy introduction to Islamic law and the Hanbali school has been included to prepare the readers. The language employed in the translation has been kept simple straightforward and modern to make the work accessible to everyone who speaks English - Law students or otherwise. This bilingual edition, with its parallel Arabic text, will allow readers to access the original Arabic and hopefully help with vocabulary building, oracy and future translations. Muslims for many centuries have turned to Dalil al-Talib for study and ultimately to be informed of their religious practices. It is hoped the translation, The Student's Guide, will produce a similar response and convey the spirit and manner of the original owing to its style and simplicity.
