The author Moulana Ashraf Thanwi (r.a.) himself served Islam in many different fields during the 83 years he lived. Being one of the biggest traditional scholars of his time specialised on Islamic jurisprudence he has been given the title Hakeem-ul-Ummat.
When Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (r.a.) saw how uneducated the Muslim girls and women were, he decided to write this classic book on Fiqh & Masa’il (jurisprudence & regulations). The tradition is still holding on in the Indo-Pak to give this comprehensive handbook as a gift to a new bride. So, while her new life in a new family begins, she knows about the Islamic traditions, regulations and rituals.
