    Salam Alaikum, Shaykh al-Asiri –

    May Allah reward you for the beneficial article.

    I had a question about Sharh al-Awn al-Kabir – Is this the same as Awn al-Khabir of Maulana Sufi Abd al-Hamid Khan Swati? I’ve ran into both titles, but I’m not sure whether they are the same or not.

      Wa alaykum salam. It’s a different title.

    As salaamu ‘alaykum,

    For those of us who don’t speak urdu, is there an alternative to al-Fawz al-Kabir and its commentary. I’m aware that there is an Arabic version of al-Fawz al-Kabir. But, as far as I know, al-Awn al-Kabir is only in Urdu.

      Al-‘Awn al-Kabir is in Arabic, by Mawlana Saʿīd Aḥmad al-Pālanpūrī. There are several similarly titled commentaries in Urdu, though.

    What do you think of Man’a of Qataan ?
    Would you recommend it for begginers?
    What are the alternatives?

    Keenly awaiting your response?

      Wa alaykum al-salam! It’s a decent book and is used in some universities as an introductory textbook but I would recommend the introductory texts mentioned above over it.
