Qurratul Aynayn bi Jawab Nurul Aynayn by Shaykh Rayhan Jawaid
18 Mar, 2013
This is an Urdu work with key proofs also in Arabic by Shaykh Rayhan Jawaid (of Pakistan) in defence of the evidences used to substantiate the practice of non-raf’ul yadayn (raising of the hands) in Salah (namaz) after the initial Takbir of Salah as advocated by the Hanafi and Maliki schools of Law. In doing so it is a direct reply to Zubair Ali Zai of Pakistan who attempted to weaken all such proofs used by the named schools of Law. The work by Zubair Ali Zai seems to have been used by some of his UK based followers (Abu Khuzaima and Abu Hibban) who published it under the following cover by abridging it in the English language:
It has been stated in our work on establishing 20 Rak’ats of Taraweeh as a response to the last two named individuals:
Indeed, these two compilers (Abu Khuzaimah/Abu Hibban) have also put out a short book in reply to most of the proofs used by the Kufan scholars and the position of the Hanafi and most of the Maliki school on not raising the hands (raf’ul yadayn) in Salah after the first Takbir, and they also dismissed al-Zaylai’s own authentication of some non-raful yadayn narrations from his Nasb al Ra’ya as a consequence. What is bewildering to note is that they released this book under one pseudonym of “Abu Asaakir al-Araaqee”!! Despite it being known that it was compiled by two individuals!
