The Durr-ul-Mukhtar (Selected Pearl) is a commentary on a work of great authority known as Tanvir-ul-Absar written by Sheikh Abdul lah Tamartashi. It was written in the Hijri year 1070, by the great scholar Sheikh Muhammad Ala-ud-Din, son of Sheikh Ali Haskafi who had been a Mufti at Damascus for a long time. The work as originally drafted was ten times bigger than what it is at present but while revising it the learned author Sheikh Muhammad Ala-ud-Din reduced its bulk and compressed it into the present volume.
The present publication is an English translation of the original work and deals with such portions of the work as are applicable to Muslims of the Hanafi Sect. It was rendered into English by Mr. B. M. Dayal, an Advocate of great fame and renowned for his learning in Islamic literature. He added. footnotes by way of annotations wherever necessitated and these have invariably been taken from Raddul Muhtar, the well-known commentary on the Durr-ul-Mukhtar by eminent jurist, Sheikh Muhammad Am in, also known as lbn-i-Abidin of Syria.
It would thus appear that the present work combines Durr-ul-Mukhtar and Raddul Muhtar into one compilation and also incorporates Tanvir-ul-Absar, with the result that it is a compendium of the Muslim (Hanafi) Law, which may prove of immense benefit to the research scholars, the Bench and the Bar, as well as the general readers who may be interested in the study of Islamic Law.
