Supplement for the Seeker of Certitude: Worship from Zād al-Mustaqni‘ presents the sections related to worship from Mūsā al-Ḥajjāwī’s Zād al-Mustaqni‘, an abridgment of Ibn Qudāmah’s Al-Muqni‘ that adheres to the school’s official position, removing extraneous issues, and adding a few necessary things. The book is extremely terse yet it still manages to present the basics for the school along with issues rarely found in books twice its length. The book was accepted by scholars of the school to such an extent that some said that whoever has memorized it is fit to be a judge. The book continues to be considered essential reading for students of the school, making it a natural choice for presenting the school to English readers.
It is more advanced than Ḥanbalī Acts of Worship and it is intended to be read as a supplement to it.
