Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence (Usul ul-Fiqh)(Usool al-Shaashi)

How is one to wade through the apparent welter of irreconcilable primary Islamic sources?

What is one to do when faced with opposing practices of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Aalihi Sallam) on the same issue? 

When is a practice deemed necessary or recommended? 

These are some of the topics discussed in usul al-fiqh. Loosely translated as principles of Islamic jurisprudence, usul al-fiqh is the legal theory which underpins Islamic positive law and practical ethics. 

The book Usul ash-Shashi is an isagogic opuscule on legal theory according to the Hanafi School of Law. It is widely favoured and accepted in the darse nizami syllabus of South Asian seminaries and their sister institutions outside of the Asian Subcontinent despite little being known of its author.
