Although the rulings are predominantly of the Shafi School of Islamic Law it does have rulings from Hanafi School of thought. Having said that, it is handy for every laymen as the second half of the book is full of texts, biographies of every scholar mentioned in the book, rulings on contemporary issues like Smoking and Music, that are relevant to every Muslim, no matter which school they adhere too. I have to say, one cannot do with out it in this western world that we live in, where it is very difficult to find a reference-book excellently researched, typeface, easy to read hence understand, indexed, and updated to current issues. A smaller complementary text by the same translated is al-Maqasid, also helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource on Islamic Law 21 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This book is a must for anyone interested in Islamic Law. It is a comprehensive book that covers practices of personal Islamic Law to governmental law. It contains extensive discussion on Islamic Spirituality and tenets of faith. The book is well indexed and is extensively cross-referenced so that topics can be easiy found. In short there is not another book like it in the English language, get it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference 5 Jun 2011
The book itself is well written, and all footnotes and additional comments are clearly marked by letters/symbols. It contains supplementary notes from other works and explanations of the basic text, as well as explanations from some of the teachers of the author. Some additional material has been added, such as the biographies of important figures, but all additions are clearly marked and separated. The certification of Al-Azhar should be enough to dispel any naysayers on the accuracy of translation, conveyance of the intended meaning of the original text, and any additional material as being of benefit to students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference 14 April 2011
This is an excellent reference manual. Although it covers the Shafi School of Law, it is still an essential book for students. I found the appendices very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb translation of a must-have text 14 May 2004
By Hassan
The work is thorough and very well translated (as usual) by Keller.
Umdat al-Salik (Reliance of the Traveller) has always been a work held in high regard. It deals in particular with the Shaf'i school of jurisprudence (one of the four principle schools) citing the relevant evidences and explaining arguments in detail. It provides any reader with an invaluable resource to dip into and also a comprehensive groundwork if studied.
I was given this edition as a present recently and heartily recommend it.
