As part of the measures to attain that prosperity, an adult Muslim needs to conduct his or her affairs, behave and respond according to the teachings of Islam in all aspects of life. These issues range from matters concerning acts of worship to other matters such as family, culture, current affairs, financial transactions, etiquettes, and ethics.
An adult Muslim therefore has a duty to learn the teachings of Islam on those issues that he or she may come across in life. Some of those teachings may be readily available, and if not, he or she must endeavour to learn or seek the answers to one’s queries.
Although every conduct that an adult Muslim does according to the teachings of Islam constitutes an act of worship, no matter what aspect of life it may concern, traditionally by ‘acts of worship’ it is meant issues such as ritual cleanliness, daily prayers, fasting, hajj, and zakah.
In this Book One of this series of compilations, topics concerning the said “Acts of Worship” are presented. Based on the traditional works of Risalah Amaliyyah or Tawzih Masa’el, this work is a compilation of rulings and Q&A on various issues that a Muslim individual may come across during his or her adult life.
