English translation of Ahkam Assalah book by Shekh Ali Raghib. The book was originally written by Shekh Taqiuddin Nabhani however due to the prevalent security situation at the time, he requested Shekh Ali Raghib to assist him in reviewing the book and subsequently publish it under his name.

Shekh Nabhanis style of writing is vividly present in the book, his style of quoting the Evidences, the hadith and ayat and extracting the rules from them, just has been the hallmark in all his other books.

The book much like all books of Salah starts from the subject of Taharah, and then delves into the details of salah.

  • The conditions for the validity of the prayer
  • The description of the prayer
  • The things which invalidate the prayer

  • Following the Imamah of a person from different madhab
  • The prayer of shortening (qasr)
  • Distance of shortening the prayer
  • Joining between two prayers
