Product Description

Review

"This contribution to the groundbreaking series of bilingual editions from the Library of Arabic Literature presents a detailed picture of the life of Ibn Hanbal (d. 855 AD), one of the most influential Muslims in history and one of the most celebrated Sunni theologians."-"Banipal Magazine of Modern Arabic Literature",

"Michael Cooperson's fluid translation is accompanied by substantial notes and a glossary of names and terms."-Banipal Magazine,

"Cooperson's translation is uncommonly deft... On the whole, this translation is a grand success. It will be valuable for teachers to illustrate early Islamic piety, early Islamic law, early Sunni theology, and everyday life in Baghdad."-Christopher Melchert, "Journal of Islamic Studies"

"Michael Cooperson's fluid translation is accompanied by substantial notes and a glossary of names and terms."-"Banipal Magazine"

"Cooperson s translation is uncommonly deft On the whole, this translation is a grand success. It will be valuable for teachers to illustrate early Islamic piety, early Islamic law, early Sunni theology, and everyday life in Baghdad." -Christopher Melchert, "Journal of Islamic Studies""

Michael Cooperson s fluid translation is accompanied by substantial notes and a glossary of names and terms. -"Banipal Magazine""

Gives readers a unique vantage point into the life and piety of the namesake of the Hanbali school of Sunni law Ibn al-Jawzi, drawing on earlier reports, reconstructs the life and morality of his hero as a complex, earnest, and playful man; Cooperson s dynamic and accessible translation brings this last quality to the surface to an extent that would surprise many modern readers with preconceptions about Hanbalism. -"Marginalia""

One hundred chapters and over 150,000 words of Munaqib Abi Allah Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Hanbal pulsate with energy; these pages are vibrant with events of extraordinary nature, and they contain hundreds of facets of individual and collective lives of a bygone era; Cooperson s translation captures the soul of the book -"Islamic Studies""

About the Author
